  1. It might be a case of biting the bullet and buying a new pump and if not that then a new pcb
  2. Like Joe says. I had this problem with mine and it was just the remote battery
  3. The roof on the Bailey's has a join in it from one side to the other towards the back of the caravan, the roof strap covers this join to keep it water tight.
  4. Yes see if the fuse still blows with it all unplugged, it's a start to finding the fault, that's if it is wired to the toilet. You will see in you local caravan accessory shop that pumps and PCBs are readily available as they do like to fail now and then
  5. There will be no battery pack. It's possible that the toilet is wired up to that fuse. Try unplugging the pump and PCB and replace the fuse and see if it blows. You could also do with a way to see if power is getting to the pump when you press the flush button
  6. You may find that that parking sensors do not turn off when caravan is plugged in. As alot of cars come with a button to turn them on and off so manufacturers see no need to make this process automatic While you are there see if the hitch pads need a clean
  7. Apparently there is a second fuse a 230v one towards the bottom of the unit and that the boiler needs to come out to get to it.
  8. Looking at your question you are possibly looking at newer lunars because your asking about recent construction methods. No they are not all bad, they did go through a period of time where maybe they let quality slip but if you buy a newer one then there should be no more of an issue than any other make and yes they still have wood inside and screwed together Just be aware that you will only get a limited warranty with the dealer, some one else will have to update you if you get any from lunar themselves on newer caravans. Will you be happy to buy a caravan where perhaps parts or furniture are difficult to impossible to get if you have a problem, and where you might have to cover the cost yourself for repair. How much would a back panel cost you if it develops cracks or a new sunroof.
  9. Hello and welcome. Have you been caravanning for long?
  10. I used a lighter to melt the edge by quickly passing it over where I had cut it and squished it together with my fingers, it worked really well on my carpet.

    Warranty

    It does if the services of the caravan have been kept up in accordance with the manufacturer and it is then transferred into your name once you purchase it. Be aware that you may not get the full length of warranty, for example if he caravan originally came with a 10 year water ingress warranty the second owner may only get the caravan covered up to 6 years old, some manufacturers reduce the warranty for the second owner, also appliances may only be covered for the initial 1 to 3 years from when the caravan was first registered, you will need to confirm all this for yourself and make sure your happy before buying it.
  12. There is a guy on YouTube that installed 2 lithium batteries into his motorhome, he ended going back to lead acid because of issues , I didn't pay any real attention when I watched it so not sure why
  13. I have a pro-tec custom fit towing cover, very easy to fit single handed with only one zip used to fit it, I did used to have a universal off eBay that was a right pain to fit with 2 people. They are not something to leave on when storing the caravan, they won't offer any benefit and slight movement in the wind will scratch your van with dirt washed off the roof behind the cover
  14. My god. That's terrible. You would seriously hope they know what they were doing and while mistakes can happen Surely they would have the equipment to make sure this does not happen such as a drill bit stop collar to prevent drilling to deep.
  15. Not the same car but similar amount of power. I towed with a new shape insignia 1.5t petrol pulling a 1250mptlm caravan. I had no issues but I wouldn't have wanted to tow 1485kg like your proposing. I think it would have been to much for it.
