  1. It's a good cleaner but It can take the shine of certain surfaces. and on the back it tells you to keep away from clear perspex, plastics etc. So maybe not the best to use near your windows
  2. I think they are basically the same as any evaporative cooler which can be had for a lot less money. This type of cooler won't cool a room down, especially this size won't cool your caravan down they are more personal coolers. The humidity of the atmosphere also affects the effectiveness. They can drop the air temperature coming out of the outlet by a few degrees so great if you are sitting in your caravan on a hot day with it being directed at yourself but at £300 is overpriced
  3. I keep mine on the drive and benefit from the list of reasons you give above. Like most insurance policies the more security I add the cheaper it gets. I just have the alko wheel lock and a hitch lock. I don't have a tracker as the insurance discount is less then the subscription date I used a broker called happy place and the insurance is underwritten by royal alliance. For me they have worked out the best for what I require for the last couple of years and the renewal quote was actually cheaper than I could get anywhere else Although I do have another whee
  4. I have done thanks. I put some in the other day. A good tip though
  5. I thought I would share my lockdown project (pun intended) Last year my caravan door lock jammed in the unlock position. A warranty job fixed that but the lock was extremely stiff and I was worried it would happen again. I ordered a new lock barrel and keys off eBay but couldn't get the same number barrel as the rest of the caravan so that would mean 2 different keys which I didnt like the idea off The lock and keys I ordered can be seen in the photo below I then ordered a hartal lock barrel removal tool, which looks a bit like a key.
  6. I've had no issues with mine. Emove have been around for a while and if you register I think you get a 5 year warranty but don't quote me on that. Mine is 3 years old and now on my second caravan. They are not the fastest but have no problems moving the caravan.
  7. I have one. Fitted it myself. What would you like to know.
  8. I bought my swift off of them last year, they are based near Retford. What would you like to know. It's a family run business. The guy who owns it used to work for Swift. The reason I bought from them was two fold. Firstly they had the caravan I wanted and secondary they offered me a better part ex price then two other dealers had. They don't offer finance directly but do suggest a lender called paragon finance which I ended up using as they offered a better interest rate than any other loan I could get from a bank, but obviously the choice is yours on that front.
  9. Thank you both. I have managed to get it to say in place and yes it is a copy key but not previously had this issue. The metal of the lock is actually starting to crack at the end where the tang is so I'm going to order a new lock
  10. Hello. My door lock has come out with the key and won't stay in the handle. How are locks held in place or any tips on repairing it. Thanks.
  11. I'm sure that they will have something similar in the pipeline
  12. An email from the Camping and Caravanning Club states that they are going to extend your membership for as long as their sites are closed. An extract of the email is below. This year, we’re extending your membership period for as long as our sites are closed, to ensure you receive your full 12 months of membership no matter what happens. We’ve expanded our booking window to 18 months exclusively for our members, so you can now book up until October 2021. If you make a booking during our closure period, we’ve made it fully flexible, so you can amend it to any available d
  13. My V5 has nothing next to the towing weight. No figure at all not even a zero. Having checked with the DVLA they say it's the vin plate you need to go by. Having also checked with the manufacturer they confirm that the towing weight for my vehicle is the same as the calculation from the vin so I've just left it. The V5 is not always accurate
  14. It might be a case of biting the bullet and buying a new pump and if not that then a new pcb
  15. Like Joe says. I had this problem with mine and it was just the remote battery
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. Hello and welcome. Have you been caravanning for long?
  23. 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.

    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 ma
  25. 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
