  1. Many thanks for all the help.Thanks to Caravantech for a very definitive answer. All done and dusted -bolts set at 130nm and ready for our forthcoming trip to the Yorkshire Dales. Regards to all. Davd.
  2. Thanks John but I still have the original bolts.Dave
  3. Hi there! Can anyone confirm the wheel bolt torque for my Olympus ll 462 2012. There is a sticker on the wheel arch which states 88 lb ft which I have always set them to but a recent service says that the bolts have been tightened to 130 nm(95 ft lb.) Many thanks. David..
  4. Hi there! Many thanks for all the very helpful advice. I have eventually decided to buy all my swiss rail passes and vignette via the Swis Travel Service .If you pay in GBP's then they do not charge delivery. They do,however,charge an admin fee!! I will have all I need in one delivery. Now for foreign currency-but that's another story!!!! Cheers! David.
  5. Hi Lutz. Thanks for the reply. We will be entering Switzerland at Basel.Your suggestion of purchase at a motorway service station may be a compromise. It seems that the website Tolltickets is in fact a German company! Regards David.
  6. Hi there! Has anyone used the firm Tolltickets.com to buy the Swiss vignette. The Swiss Travel Service charge too much in postage and this firm is much more reasonable. I know we can buy at the border but we did get very stressed last time we went.-must be age! Many thanks David.
  7. Many thanks for the replies.Will try Isabella direct and see what they charge for the extensions! Regards David.
  8. Hi there. We have the Isabella Sun canopy but find that the roof catches on the top of the caravan door because the legs are not long enough.I believe that you can get leg extensions but cant find them. Anyone know where I can find them? Also, the size we have only comes with 2 poles and could do with an extra one in the middle but they are about £40!! Any help would be great. David.
  9. Hi there, trying to find out how much gas is left in my 2 bottles before we go abroad. The collar on one says 09 14 and the other 09 10 which, if i am correct, is the empty weight of the cylinders in lbs and ozs. This translates into approx 4.48kgs and 4.37 kgs respectively. I then weigh the bottles to see the weight with any gas left. Deduct the two weights and have the answer !!! Can anyone please confirm that I am doing the correct thing? Many thanks. David.
  10. Hi there! My Truma fire fan switch will not work on the "Auto" setting . Do I need a new switch or is there an easy fix? Thanks David
  11. Hi there! Got mine in case from the RAC -£8 including admin. (Not a member) Issuing post offices too far away or too awkward and costly to park. Valid from 1st March for one year. Off to The Netherlands on 31st March!!!
  12. Thanks for the advice. The van is in storage at the moment so no power. Maybe I will wait to fit it when we go away next in the new year. Hope it comes off ok!!! Thanks.
  13. Hi ianfish! tis the one over the kithchen area which is a combined blind and flyscreen. Thanks for your interest.
  14. Hi there. I have ordered a replacement mini heki complete blind/flyscreen inner frame from Prima. Does anyone know how to remove the old one? The Dometic web site says in just pulls off from one corner! I am a bit nervous about tugging it off! Can anyone please advise ? Many thanks . David.
