  1. I wonder if the previous owner knew of the problem, but perhaps doubtful if the issue wasn't picked up until the 3rd service. If you don't have any success with Elddis then you now have to decide between paying yourself for the repair, selling with full declaration, or the less moral option of selling without mentioning the problem. Selling to a dealer, or part ex'ing passes the problem on to the dealer and the next owner.
  2. DVLA sent me a letter today asking if I want to return to HGV driving as there are some 'amazing opportunities'. No thanks. I have no desire to urinate in a bottle whilst driving and sling it out the window, but thank you anyway.
  3. I had 3/4 of a tank yesterday, that might last me to the en of the month, or just 2 days, no way of knowing. But last night I passed a petrol station that was serving fuel so I popped in, they had signs stating a £30 limit. I topped up from 3/4 tank to full. What do the masses think of that? Will I go to heaven?
  4. Well there is a fuel crisis if the fuel can't get to the pumps. Doesn't matter what the reason is, if there's no fuel at the pumps then there is indeed a crisis. The cause might be a shortage of drivers, media, us motorists or a combination of all three, but however you view it, there most certainly is a crises regardless of the cause. Last week there were some petrol stations which couldn't get fuel delivered, the media reported it, and motorists reacted as expected. We can't blame the motorists for panic buying because we all need fuel to get to work etc, and if there's a possible shortage ahead then motorists are going to go out and fill up. All perfectly reasonable to me.
  5. I got my HGV Class 1 and fuel tankers licence over 20 years ago, but have never been attracted to becoming an hGV driver. I just can't see the appeal.
  6. Strange how they work. CMC are the cheapest for me at £199 based on no tracker, no contents cover and £300 excess. Swift Supersure whom I'm with now have quoted nearly £300 for the same cover renewal. They all seem to work no the same principle of pricing lower for new customers and raising it on renewal hoping folk can't be bothered to shop around.
  7. Anyone know if the alarms fitted to modern Swift caravans are tilt activated? I'm getting insurance quotes for my 2019 Swift Aventura (Sprite Major dealer special) , and am being asked if my alarm is tilt activated? I'm guessing it activates by PIR inside the van, but are they tilt activated as well, say when being hitched up?
  8. Just had a reply to my email, looks like the tracker is free for just the first two years, whilst the remote access remains free for three years. So I have to decide whether to renew my subs for the tracker. My insurance renewal quotes will help me decide I guess.. The 3 years free service that you receive is for the basic data (remote control) not the tracking subscription. The basic data is on your account until 29/09/22, but the Thatcham tracking subscription runs out on the 29th of this month
  9. I don't recall, I shall phone them tomorrow
  10. Has the three years fee service now been reduced to two years? I bought my Swift caravan brand new in Sept 2019, so it's now 2 yrs old, yet I have had warning on the Command website that it now needs renewing.
  11. I was on a club site recently and there was a very large 5th wheel unit on site. The warden said that they struggled to get onto the pitch due to the size of their unit, and had they contacted the wardens prior to arrival they would have reserved a more suitable pitch for them.
  12. We have three Sunncamp Swift pole awnings in different sizes (220, 260 & 390) for different kinds of trips. The 220 is for winter and short trips, it's quick to pack away when wet and quick and easy to dry out at home. The 260 is for when our son comes with us, to sleep in. The 390 is for longer stays
  13. I heard that Knaresborough CC site was recently invaded by travellers, with them having to contact customers telling them not to attend their booking.
  14. Thanks, they don't seem to be taking bookings yet from people who haven't used them before.
