  1. Puriclean will wreck the inline water filters If you are going to puriclean remove the water filter & replace with a section of pipe when you do it
  2. Not a Cove but we have an Outwell Pebble 300A (which won BEST AWNING in the ‘Tourer of the year Awards 2018’ run by Practical Caravan magazine) Bought it new to use on our old Swift 480 (see pic below) Very pleased with the quality and easy to put up We thought about changing it for the new to us Compass but we are going to try it first before we consider changing it If the price is right, I would definitely buy another Outwell I get my accessories direct from Outwell in Denmark - massively cheaper Great service and it always arrives quicker than things I buy in the Uk https://www.outletcamping.com/en-gb-1
  3. We have a 2019 MY20 G01 BMW X3 xDrive 20d M Sport (190ps - 400nm torque) towing a 2017 Compass Camino 660 - 85% on the 'ratio' BMW's only done around 2000 miles thanks to Covid19 Towing - around 26-28mpg Normal driving - around 40-45mpg Considering our Camino is 1800kg MTPLM the X3 is very sprightly with it attached
  4. Lots of info here https://www.johnguest.com/
  5. Paranoia got the better of me & I bought 'the black one' lol First impressions - The black one is one heavy mutha. The fit is a lot better than the red one which I always thought was just not quite a tight enough fit. Yes yes I know it can be cut off just like any other hitch lock but this one will take some time IMHO Those extra few minutes may be just enough, who knows Like Ian, no regrets A little research on the Alko website is showing the red one weighing in at 1.5kg versus the black one which weighs 4.9kg! Before and after pic's lol

  14. Jockey wheel change day today + a few other bits & pieces I wanted to do to the 'van New jockey wheel on the left. Its a little smaller in diameter & not as wide but its how I wanted it Close inspection of the old JW showed a hairline crack in the solid plastic wheel itself. So obviously did the right thing in changing it & pleased I went for the steel wheel with rubber tyre
