  1. Having done the research, I am aware that the vin plates on the cars do not have any towing information, technically they have not been tested /approved for towing in Japan. So if I was to have an accident the insurers would say I was not insured. But as I travelled south on the M6 today I saw Nissan pulling a caravan.
  2. Machine Mart do a good set of security screwdriver bits in a case

    The M6!

    Poorer than who, I do not to go on about my early life but compare to what we had they have got it easy. Coal picking off pit heaps with my mother, shared wc outside (emptied by a man with a shovel )with 5 other families, no bath or hot water system, gas lighting, no electrical supply, cooking on an open fire. And handed down clothes. Medical treatment was not like it is today. Men suffering lung problems due to work. These snowflakes need to get a life.
  4. Almost all our cycle rides are off road. There is a Sustrans book with dozens of traffic free rides, it's well worth the money. We are off to the Hornsea area at the weekend and will cycle the Hull to Hornsea old raitrack. We have done the Pemburey ride. Some of the best rides we have done are Llangollen canal, the Monsal trail (fantastic), Lancaster canal, the old York to Selby railway line, Bellford to Lindisfarne (very little traffic but watch the tide). Try the Exmouth river ride catch the ferry over to the other side of the river cycle to Teignmouth, then back over on the other ferry ( we missed this one due to very wet weather).

  5. Where the pump plus in there are a pair of usually copper contacts. Very lightly give them a clean with very fine emery paper and rub them with a clean cloth afterwards.
  6. Check the pump contacts are clean on the caravan inlet.
  7. Be aware of the below. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/cars/news/e10-fuel-warning-drivers-issued-with-insurance-caution-before-new-fuel-rollout-next-month/ar-AAMXX2q?ocid=mailsignout&li=BBoPWjQ Also if you pay at the pump soon they will take £100 off your card, then credit back the difference between what you purchased and the £100 a few days later.
  8. I have fitted dash cams to my car, as I have been a victim of a lot of cut-ins. It is a shame the camera on the back of out Swift caravan could not act as a dash cam. I still find a lot of lorry drives still flash you in.
  9. Have a look at the link below we should get 2 years. Not sure if this regulation still apply's, but I think it will. Not all EU legislation ended on leaving the EU. Also Talk to trading standards Good luck https://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/bills/article-1677034/Two-year-warranty-EU-law.html
  10. Just thought I would resurrect this topic as I am still thinking about buying one.
  11. Just received my renewal price , and to justify an increase they say I am getting 12 months cover instead of 10 months. They will try anything.
  12. It's the re-programming of your electronic control unit. It can make a big difference in performance including an increase in torque power. An long with better fuel consumption. There are two main types a plug in system and a electronic burn of your control unit. Best to go to a local specialist and they would advise, it's along way cheaper than changing your car. Please be aware you may have to inform your insurer.
  13. You could look at getting your car remapped, may do the trick at a cheap price. See the specialists in your area for advice.
  14. A £1000 its a bit steep. Tow rags speeding around our towns only get a slap.
  15. We just tried to have garden birthday party today, it never stopped raining. I had a thought, if I was to purchases these awning rails on Ebay I coul use ore awning as so call gazebo. Has anyone out there had a go at this, and how successful was it? The rails are about £20, it looks good value. We have a large shed in the garden so fixing it to that would be fine. Thanks
