  1. Thank you WispMan and for the rare good spell of warm weather here in Scotland.
  2. A few weeks ago I found a small section of damp in my Swift Charisma in the toilet area,. I stripped what I could of the damp out which was not too bad fingers crossed. We have had good warm weather so I let it all dry with plenty of air getting round the toilet area. I now have got the damp level down to 15 as apposed to 25/30 before. my question is do you think 15 is a level of damp which is as good as I will get? I intend to keep the van as otherwise its in good condition. Thank you.
  3. Thanks Gd485 will check them out.
  4. Is there a service anyone knows of which matches car with caravan, I know about Towcar match etc, but is there a site if I log in my car technical details a list of suitable caravans I can match, we are elderly and thinking of a light fixed bed tourer but at the moment I am matching car and caravan, matching car and caravan...….it takes forever. Thank you.
  5. Thanks WispMan I will contact Carver and let you know the result .
  6. Been round to the caravan cant see make or model of mover. tho the handset quotes carver single axle 027972. Is it quite easy to replace the rollers.
  7. Griff I will walk round to my yard and check later. Thanks
  8. Slight mishap with my motor mover, it seems to have caught on rough piece of tarmac which moved the mover onto the caravan wheel.Not too much damage, after releasing it we carried on our way. Since now back home I see that quite a bit of the grit? has been rubbed off the mover spindle what I am trying to find out is there any compound I can put back on to get it to make good contact with the caravan wheel again. Also any tips on hints would help. Thank You.
  9. E.mailed the garage where I bought the car they checked with the towbar fitter and called back to say that the towbar had been set up for a caravan I will check again and see if I am doing something wrong, Maybe the best thing is to hitch up and check again what works. I need a holiday after all this......
  10. I seamed to have fallen into the trap of when is a towbar a towbar, I am sure I said to the garage I need a towbar fitted as I am towing a caravan. I think I will check with a auto electrician as I am not to sure of voltmeters and gadgets .. its an age thing. I am wiser now thanks to forums like this. thanks
  11. Why are towbar electrics such a source of bother, I now have paid out for a new towbar and am no better off than I was with my single electric setup. I will phone the garage and find out the position or I may hitch-up the van and go for a short drive , I assume I can connect the two connections without causing any problems.
  12. Will try that as I only checked on tickover speed is there any electrical things I should check , the fridge works fine when we get to a site or I did last year.. A bit miffed as I thought new towbar all electrics on the ball away we go but no..
  13. Fitted towbar cables just to check all is well...…. Found out that fridge is not working as the light does not come on this the first time I have used the two cables connected together my last setup was a single connection... Ah Ah...... What do I need to check first , Towbar was fitted by a garage where I bought the car over 150 miles away!
  14. Thanks Matelodave, I am tempted to shorten but I will have our first outing with the new setup with your bungee advice and see how that works I like things to be tidy . The prewired connector sounds a good idea. Thanks
  15. Just had another look at my towbar it is not possible to move the socket as its on a fixed bracket. my next question is it easy shorten the cables (or prudent) that come from the caravan as I now have a lot of extra cable hanging about the towhitch area when I attach my 13 pin adaptor to my 7 pin sockets. or better let alone?
