  1. Are everyone's gas locker angle brackets bonded into place as well as screwed. The repair mentions bonding them into place so it looks like some weren't done at the factory, mine is but some photos I've seen they are not
  2. It can be a major fault yes. You don't need to call anyone,just follow the instructions in the letter. It's only a certain batch of 2017 vans affected not all of them. I have a 2017 Sprite which is not part of the recall, I did call and check as I never received a letter.
  3. CMC have it now. I hope they refurbish the facilities as they are getting a bit grotty
  4. It pops up a few millimetres to show a green band. It doesn't move much.just to show the pads are engaged correctly
  5. There are issues over large parts of the UK at the moment with Freeview
  6. I'm only on my second caravan and third season. So relatively new at it all. The first was a little 2012 2 birth, I thought it would be satisfactory plus needed a light caravan for the car we had at the time. We found out we loved caravanning. We then upgrade the car and the thought of a bigger caravan popped in to my head plus I didn't like not having anywhere to sit while my wife was in bed so got a 2017 fixed side bed like yours. I would love a large caravan with island bed but it comes down to money, space to store it and what the car can tow so will be several years before that is on the cards for myself.
  7. Your not sure wether you are under the limit to drive so you get in your car..turn on the ignition to activate the breathalyser which shows you are over the limit. You are then immediately charged with being in control of a vehicle while over the drink drive limit.
  8. I stayed there this summer, It's a really nice site. Very modern and clean facilities, there is a restaurant on site which opens 3 days a week and you can take food away if you wish. There is a small site shop selling a good selection of food and basic caravan accessories. The site is over 3 levels separated by trees so which ever area you are in it never feels busy, there is also an adults only area with around 20 pitches on it. There is practically no TV reception but the fully serviced pitches do offer a coax aerial point on the bollards. The road leading to the site is extremely narrow. It only services the site so you don't have to worry about meeting another caravan on the way down as there are strict leaving and arrival times. There is also a separate field offering a caravan and motorhome cl site of 5 fully serviced pitches separated by tall hedges with their own facilities block. Hope this helps Dan.
  9. Have you also tested for damp above the window?
  10. If you go for a petrol turbo with an engine size of 1.4 or 1.5 then it will be producing similar if not more torque than what you currently have and more bhp, Maximum torque will also come in at around 2000 revs so not to far off behaving like a diesel Just be aware that petrol engines are lighter in weight than diesels and subsequently in a smaller car this can affect the maximum nose weight that can be applied to the car by the caravan so check that before purchasing
  11. That will make it difficult to hitch up. That's the issue where the ground has been made up. It's not been compacted down. I was on a building site today nearing completion. As soon as you stood on the turf that had been laid making up the front gardens and verges you sank a good couple of inches if not more so the same issue that you have.
  12. Just seen you have a new insignia, same as me and the mirrors I mention above fit. Stevan - unfortunately your method does not work on the new insignia because of the angle of the edge of the mirror casing going up to the mirror glass
  13. The only mirrors I could find to fit my car which has pointy angled mirrors were ring clear view as found in Halfords https://www.halfords.com/camping-leisure/trailers-towing/trailer-accessories/ring-clearview-towing-mirror?cm_mmc=Google+PLA-_-Trailers+and+Towing-_-Trailer+Accessories-_-197742&istCompanyId=b8708c57-7a02-4cf6-b2c0-dc36b54a327e&istFeedId=62b447cf-331e-4fec-a47a-9985ff72d404&istItemId=xtqlqr&istBid=tztw&_$ja=tsid:94971|cid:1537737345|agid:58263523643|tid:pla-370468427451|crid:291898457276|nw:g|rnd:12261202768578776626|dvc:m|adp:1o3|mt:|loc:9046218&gclid=CjwKCAjwusrtBRBmEiwAGBPgEwXBH3YvDIUTU92OaqbivhPhrP8QBpIs_A5nZCkuBoHy4qo_DxZUzRoCo4EQAvD_BwE
  14. Could someone have tried to pinch it maybe. They opened the valve not knowing that the whole thing would not deflate.
  15. I understand why they rebranded but I don't think it was necessary as people knew that they accepted motorhomes. Perhaps they should be called the caravan and motorhome and tent club
