  1. Hi all first time posting here! We own a sierra 2012 have done since new, however two weeks ago we heard running water from shower turns out it was coming from behind the shower unit and had to remove mirror in bedroom to stop leak. The floor took some water which soaked into bedroom which to be honest didn't think it would be that bad as we turned off water quickly However fast forward a week and we walk into a awful damp/Fosty smell coming from the leak area. My question is I'm quessing the floor will now need replacing but it's between the walls of shower and bedroom so I don't think it will be easy to do. Is this something I can Talk to insurance about or have I left it to long now? It's been 8days since original leak I'm guessing it will of started to dry out hence the smell Does anyone have any advice? I have never claimed previously Thanks
  2. We have an old static caravan left in our garden when we bought our house (20 years ago), I have no idea of the age or model but if it helps to date it it had gas lighting! The roof has had storm damage from trees and I have made repairs with silicon and aluminium sheet; but last winter I noticed another leak at the rear of the caravan and cannot track down where the water is getting in. Does anyone know who can carry out repairs to these types of lightweight roofs? we are in Suffolk. thanks.
  3. Hi there, I have a Swift Accord 590 model 2007. It had a leak at the back window. I had to totally remove the whole rear panel on the inside as well as the furniture, replace the rotten wood and rebuild it. I found nails and screws in the rear plastic panel that had split the plastic from it’s original manufacturing and assumed this was the source of the leak. This was on the screws attaching the rear window and also Under the awning rail. I removed and resealed the awning rail. All of this took me a year and lots of Sikaflex. When it rained there was no leaking into the caravan back before I put the wall boarding on and rebuilt it. Now imagine my horror as after a trip to Devon the wood on the top inside of the rear window is leaking. My main question is from people’s experience where is the likely entrance of this water as I’ve already done a lot of sealing and feel like I’m fighting a battle of no returns. I wonder if the flexing of this journey has made some more splits. I also feel I might just be missing something here. Thanks in advance, I have my sealing gun ready to go...
  4. Calling on Elddis van owner to check the seals around the battery box and under bunk external access compartment as the seal on my van has failed and flooded the inside of the van. The fact that it's on 2 compartments suggest it's the fixing material not a poor installation, in my opinion, but I was surprised that there are no fixing screws securing the frames to the body of the van. The picture is taken looking down the outside of the van from above the compartment.
  5. Hi there, we have had quite a bit of rain overnight and water is dripping into the van from the window over the sink. Not had this before, had the van 18 months. The leak stopped shortly after the rain stopped. The rain was on the affected side of the van. When the rain started again the leak started again almost straight away. When it was not raining I raised the fly screen and a section of it was wet, see pic. Vid of the leak, pic of the fly screen and top of external side of the window are below. Would I be able to put a sealant on the outside of the window frame to avoid taking the van to the dealer? Thanks, Fortyfoot. https://photos.app.goo.gl/9RfAVfRc7tZ9gXQ69 https://photos.app.goo.gl/5qDkXuGryfAJ4ixMA
  6. I have lived in the USA for 15 years and was a keen RVer having owned 5 over the years, all in various states of repair/preservation and during the process of refurbishment, I cam across this product which is widely available in the States and non-existent in the UK (or appears so) It's an adhesive tape that is loaded with a very, very sticky sealant and is used to cover the seams on motorhome roofs. You dry the seam, clean it with meths and then apply the tape and finish off with a wallpaper roller. The adhesive is pressure activated. I have used it on fibreglass, metal and EPDM roofs and it's amazing - it has never leaked after being applied and the American RV community swear by it. I'm just about to take delivery of my used Bailey Pegasus Monarch S5 and it has two roof seams and I have just ordered my Eternabond tape from the US (eBay) It comes in a handy 4" x 8 ft roll - enough to do a single full width seam and it's white that should match (almost) the roof colour. I'll post some photos when it arrives of the product and the application - with shipping it was approx £50 for the 2 seams - a small price to pay for the peace of mind. http://www. eternabond. com/
  7. I have been the one and only owner of this brand new 2018 Adria Missouri and wanted to share a few problems I have encountered. 1. Shower room Tap body split leaking under partition wall. 2. Shower was leaking on a push fit piece and leaked under partition wall. 3. After tap was fixed, drain pipe from the shower room sink drain pipe split leaking under partition wall. 4. USB plugs snapped in bedroom, probably my fault if I'm honest, do not try to make the bed with cable in socket, one slight elbow knock and it snapped the socket. 5. Outside water tank locking cover seized and won't lock. 6. Kitchen sink plug snapped it's homing pin in plug. Stuck forever. The caravan has been used quite a bit and came with a good 5 year warranty. But obviously the USB port is not because I did it. The rest listed are not expected within the first 7 or 8 months of ownership. .. anyone else had the same issues? Cheers
  8. Yet another niggle about the "Kazi" Picture this, first night of our holiday, pitched at the farthest end of the site, toilet block is a 10 min walk (OK I exaggerate 9 mins) and what happens. .... My lovely Dometic loo starts to pour pink flush water all over the floor from the blade when I flushed after my ablutions. Great being as it was nearly midnight and spent the next half an hour mopping up! So the next morning I go about trying to find out where leak was coming from, I couldn't find it for love nor money. Checked online in the forums & Google, very little information on Model (CTW4050) only replacement seals that cost £50 for 2. Most of the comments I found were about Thetford and seals going or needing lubrication, So I ordered silicone spray & Grease on Amazon Prime for next day delivery to site. Everything arrived, cleaned a re-greased. Tested again but still had Pink Niagara Falls in the washroom. So I gave up on toilet until I got home a week later. Please don't ask what I did for the rest of the holiday! So this afternoon I took about dismantling the toilet following the online Dometic Installation Manual. Would it come off the floor after releasing the six screws? would it begger!! and I wasn't about to start forcing things as a replacement toilet is £550. So I went hunting for the original caravan pack with all those useless guarantees and warrenties and found a Dometic Toilet Manual with a strange piece of lime green plastic which show's how to remove the toilet seat, So followed said instructions, undid the 8 screws, lifted off the the black flush ring, removed the ceramic bowl and Hey Presto found the reason for my Pink foot wash. A BROKEN 90 degree PLASTIC BEND. I've contacted Dometic to see if they can help & supply said part but as loo is out of warranty I would not be surprised to find that you wont be able to get this 25 pence part, so a whole new toilet will be needed ! Hmmm I have to see what they say. Lunar If your reading please keep with Thetford Loos I have had nothing but problems with this model since day one. Even with all the issues, I love the van but hate the build and product quality. Not sure If I would have another Lunar after having this one, the other two Lunars I have had were a dream with no problems. Rant over !
  9. We have a mystery leak on our 17 yr old Rapido pop top. Given enough rain, the inside of the front nearside corner gets soggy and there can even be water on the shelf. I've marked the area in red here The window was replaced by our dealer under guarantee, albeit reluctantly, when the original de-laminated within months of our buying. We used Eeco in Halifax. The problem started after that. I've stopped trusting the dealer & we're out of guarantee period anyway, so our local engineer identified that the window rubber seal had a gap in it, and he replaced that. No difference. We can't identify that the water's making anything wet inside, the floor seems firm, likewise the walls, so I suspect and hope it drains away into the gas locker, but am anxious to cure it. Pause due to health problems over Summer while we just protected it with a caravan cover for a few months. Now I've practically smothered the "shelf" round the roof outside, where the various seams and joins are, with Sikaflex 512. As a result it hasn't rained properly since then! But the constant drizzle this weekend has produced a slight sogginess in the J-cloth I keep there as a tell-tale. Now I'm wondering if the wet comes in round the screw at the end of the strip at the top of the window. . Are there any other unseen holes usually involved in installing this hinge strip? It seems to come in quite quickly, and is very localised. If I keep the window closed, then unscrew this and stick some sealer in before re-inserting the screw, am I likely to cause any other problem? Should I run a bead of sealer along the top of that grey strip all the way across? Any other helpful suggestions? Many thanks, Richard
  10. We bought a Kampa Pro Air 390 the year before last. Used it many times. The common problem of the leaking seam next to the awning rail has stopped after a few soakings have swelled the thread. Now we've got water coming in through several other seams, so I've bought some Kampa seam sealant to fix them. A few questions for anyone who's done this before: - is it best to apply the sealant with the awning up or down? - does it work? - Is one tube likely to be enough? - is it worth applying any proofing to the rest of the fabric while I'm at it? If so, any recommendations on what brand? Any advice or experience to share would be very welcome. I'd also be glad to hear from anyone who's not had these problems. I like the awning in many ways, but if I can't make it keep the water out, it might have to go.

  12. The screw-in tap head in our Cristall Moorea needs replacing, which is simple enough. However, I realised during our jollies last week that there are further problems with the tap unit. We have water leaking from the seal where the tap meets the sink (sorry, I'm not the most technical!) and even more worryingly, we noticed that when the tap is running, we can see water dripping on the outside from the bottom of the wall of the van. I'm hoping that buying a new tap unit will do the trick, but would like advice about how easy it is to remove and replace the unit. Thanks Ceri
  13. Hi, can anyone offer advice on how to deal with a Vendee S5 2005 that is leaking rainwater into the front locker from under the front windows. I am not too concerned that rainwater is leaking onto the front locker plastic/resin floor, but very concerned that the woodwork inside the front panel may be rotting. It appears that the water is tracking down inside the two vertical window frames that separate the three front windows. Could the rainwater ingression be though the window hinges at the top of the windows or is it possibly more serious and the ingression be through the roof joint at the top of the front panel. There is no ingress on the inside of the van. Your help is appreciated.
  14. Hi All, I'm hoping that someone can help me quickly get to the root of a problem I've found since getting the trusty old girl ready for our first holiday of the year next week. The Van: Bessacarr Cameo 420 SL- 92/93 Vintage The Problem: The water heater started leaking badly when I pressurised the system yesterday. On closer inspection, it had been the subject of one of the previous owners' now infamous "repairs". The plastic spigot/inlet at the bottom of the unit had obviously leaked at the joint in the past, and someone had e-poxyed it, finishing the job nicely with several winds of PVC insulating tape- that well-known waterproofer!!! So after unwinding the lot, and inspecting the leak, I knew I had to get the pipe of- with the slightest pull I've managed to bring the ******' spigot with it! It's sheered at the inlet in the casting of the heater itself. After a few choice words, I've now blocked the pipe off so we'll have no hot water on the forthcoming trip. The big question is; is it terminal or will it be a whole new heater? I can't see just yet how that spigot attached into the main unit- wondered if it might be internally threaded. Can anyone enlighten me? Definitely a whole unit-out job as well I should think. I've attached a few photos of the various stages of the nightmare, for reference! Still Attached, Leaking Broken Off! What's left of the spigot/inlet Any tips/advice very welcome indeed!! Cheers Dave
  15. I have a Swift 580 Lux built in 2001. It has an internal water tank which leaks when its about full. I have not had time to remove the tank protective cover on the underside of the caravan to see where the leak is coming from yet. I have checked the pump housing and fittingsunder the bed box and it is dry. The drain pipe fitting is also ok. Any ideas before I remove the cover to investigate?
  16. Hi all, The electric flush on our Thetford 250 stopped working over the weekend (Bailey Pageant Bretagne 2009). Perhaps coincidentally, this was immediately following an 'incident' where eldest childling didn't know that I was in the process of re-fitting the tank. .. I checked the fuse inside the compartment and it was intact but the blades looked to be 'furred'. I replaced the fuse and still no joy. I thought that the contacts into which the fuse goes just also have been furred up and had nothing to hand to try and clean them with so I snipped off the wires (can re-crimp them later) and twisted them together just to test - still nothing. It was getting dark so I left it for now. When we woke in the morning the carpet immediately in front of the bathroom was wet with flush water. I opened the compartment and there was also pink flush water in the bottom of it. I wonder if anyone has any advice regarding the flush problem but now possibly more seriously how and why flush water could get into the van. We've had a go at drying out the carpet but will probably need a new one. Does anyone know where to get them from? Thanks in advance for any help.
  17. Just had some friends round and they had a look in our Bailey Orion and while in there I noticed the floor to one side of the toilet was a bit wet. There was no sign of any water or marks higher up so think it must be a faulty seal on the outer door of the toilet. The caravan was sloping down towards the front so as the water was forward of toilet I think this is probable. I have only had the van less than 3 months although it is 15 months old and has a full one year manufacturers warranty so is this something I can do myself or should it go back to the dealer. I will check when it is light tomorrow if there is water in the waste holder bay or whether the seal around the doorframe is at fault. The mattress is back with the manufacturer at present so not having a lot of luck with this van. Maybe I should have stuck with the 2008 Sprite that was virtually problem free and was a more stable tow.
  18. Hi all, Has anyone ever had a leak from their pump inside the van. We have had water in the front offside locker of our Orion, but I cannot see any sign of it coming from outside. Apparently on the day that it happened my daughter left the tap open and emptied a whole 40ltr through the system. I do notice that if the pump is not seated in the receiver on the side of the caravan, then sometimes water leaks from around the area that the pump connects to the van. This then runs down the outside of the van. I took this to be a too small O ring on the pump and just re-seated it when I have seen it. I'm wondering if emptying a whole water butt through the system meant that in some way this incorrect seating that I see evidence of outside the van "backed up" and caused a leak on the inside. ... Would like your views It has rained a lot since we have had the van (obviously), but I have never seen a leak before or since the day when the tap was left open. ... :huh: I have felt around the pump inside the van, but being plastic it could have dried very quickly Cheers
  19. i have a 2001 avondale dart 510 with a Thetford 200 and the instruction book indicates a Thetford Door type 3. I purchased a new seal however it fits on the hatch perfectly but its too deep for the door to close and also it attaches to the frame not the door as the picture plus the lock is in the centre not top or bottom so i think this may not be a Thetfrod model at all. The seal i removed is much thinner. Any ideas? As i have a brand new Type 3 seal if anyone wants to make an offer :-) Also there seems to be moisture sitting in the bottom of the frame (in the locker) and some damp so im thinking i remove and reseal the frame and replace the seal.
