  1. It does have a curtain yes
  2. Hi all Just a quick question before our maiden voyage in our 2009 Alpine 4. The attached shows our van has a toilet/shower combo, and as you can see there might be some patching up in terms of some of the sealing. So, 2 questions: 1 - how best to patch these joins up? 2- more conceptually, are there any sprays (adhesive or otherwise) that people recommend for the walls to assist with water resistance and the like, that can be used on the walls? Just trying to prolong the life of this as much as possible
  3. Hey, A little late perhaps but thought Iā€™d still reply as there have been none to you as yet. We purchased one from Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0013Z830K/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  4. Thanks for the responses everyone. I might just take it to a local "caravan" place and see what they suggest. I have no clue on this one.
  5. Hi all, I've taken the picture attached of our new van's wheel. I can see lock holes behind the rims but I don't think a wheel lock will squeeze through the gaps. So, in your collective experience, what lock system would you suggest. Wheel lock or clamp?
  6. any suggestions for inverters and how to setup?
  7. Okay, so the only way to check the plug sockets are working in the caravan, is by hooking it up either at home via a mains-to-3 pin adapter, or on site at a hook up? Sorry for all the questions - I'm learning!
  8. Really? Interesting. I was sure there would be an inverter for the car to allow this. The bringing it home for the day isn't going to work for us I don't think
  9. Hi both, Thanks for the info. So, if my caravan is in storage, without any mains hookup, is there anyway to invert the car electrics to simulate a hook up?
  10. Hi all, Please help šŸ˜†šŸ˜† So I've been to our first van a few times in storage to sort out a few things and I've run the lights and radio off the leisure battery. However today I hooked it up today to my car (as though I was towing) with the ignition on and noted that the electric/car light came on. However that's just some background. My question is really what combinations of hook up/leisure battery electric will allow things to work in the van? Today none of the plugs worked but the radio and lights did so assumed that was running off the battery. Assuming that it was in battery charging mode and passing through. Other than a hook up at a services site, is there any way I can replicate mains electric to test a few things before we tow it? Fyi, Sprite Alpine 4 (2009). Thanks in advance!
  11. Ahhh, so that explains why it was pushing cold air around then, yes? Interesting. Do people use the UltraHeat as a cooler on 12v to push cold air around then or is that just what I ended up doing? šŸ˜†
  12. Hi all,on the hunt for info again as I made the rookie mistake of missing how the heating works on the handover. So, my van is in storage and I've clicked on the battery electrics. I then go to the control knob and choose 1000w, and set the temp (numbers) to around a 5 ( I think - should these align with the control panel knob bit?), and then on the heater choosing manual and whacking up to 5 on the fans. I waited 10 mins but it was still cold air. This worked 48 hours ago when I picked up so wondering if this isn't working on battery and needs something else There's so much to learn....sorry!!
  13. Hi complete newbie question here, so apologies in advance. We've just stored our Alpine 4 (2009) and when we visit our to sort things out, we flip the battery charger switch, and use the battery to power lights, heating and radio. My question is twofold: 1 - Is there any indication as to how long the battery would last in these circumstances? 2 - could I simply keep my car running and connect up the 13pin and use those electrics? Any advice would be handy. I'm still learning and trying to understand the differences and nuances of the Caravanning world šŸ˜†
  14. IT seems strange that the plate size requirements aren't in the handbook for the Van, considering not all sizes are equal. Anyway, we'll see. Halfords moaned at me coincidentally because I didn't have a V5C - it's a company car, so instead I had one of the other pieces of paperwork the DVLA told me is acceptable which is a registration plate letter from the leasing company - the rather annoying individual on the counter said they'd "never seen such a document". Customer Service huh Yes, I found a legal company and just sent them the documentation...we'll see if it fits
