  1. Always switch my start/stop off for exactly the reason above. "Coming to a halt towing with a very hot engine and letting the auto stop - stop the engine is not a good idea for the turbo." Always let engine idle for a short while before switching off too.
  2. Of course anyone wishing to become an HGV driver,it isn't just a case of booking lessons and take test. An eyesight test has to be taken first. Then a medical has to be taken with a GP (along with the results of the eyesight test). Providing those 2 are passed,a further 5 days spent in a classroom to obtain your CPC qualification. Oh....also a digital tachograph card is required. My CPC expired last year. I've no intention of renewing it and having to go through all of the above,especially with the amount of traffic on the roads now and the general standard of driving.
  3. I would imagine the thoughts of Santa fe owners would be pretty close to reality and not "educated"guesses.
  4. Ive got the 2016 model with 3 modes. When towing,I find the middle one "normal" to be adequate. "Eco"tends to be a little sluggish and "Sport" is too powerful. I'm in no rush while I'm towing. If the occasional caravanner wants to fly past me and get to the site 10 minutes before me.....carry on.🤣
  5. I ordered 3 items from them and it notified me that it could be early August before I received them. It gave me the option to proceed or cancel order.
  6. Hi Tim. I had the rear poles included when I purchased our awning. As far as I can see,all they do is help to form a "seal"against the side of the van with the help of the sew in foam strips. They did seem to help a little but wasn't a very tight fit where the draught skirt rail goes across the width of the van.
  7. Ed..... This thread is over 5 years old. He may not reply👍
  8. Lump hammer and 3ft. crowbar sounds favourite🤣🤣
  9. Simple really isn't it?. If the vehicle you are towing is wider than the rear of your car,you need towing mirrors,or possibly face a £1,000 fine + 3 points.
  10. When we had our statics,I just used turtle wax shampoo with a long brush. Didn't see any need to polish it afterwards.
  11. Copied from "Gov.UK" website. Towing mirrors. You must have an adequate view of the road behind you. Fit suitable towing mirrors if your trailer or caravan is wider than the rear of your car. You can be fined up to £1,000 and get 3 penalty points for towing without proper towing mirrors..
