  1. Hi all.... Does anyone know how to replace the rear road lighting bulbs in a 2010 Clubman please? I can't for the life of me see how to get at the bulb itself & the handbook is no help. I don't need to change any bulbs at the moment but it occurred to me that the best time to find out about these things is before you need to rather than after.... I attach a pic of my rear light cluster Thanks for any help.
  2. Our recently acquired Lunar Chateau 470 is fitted with a Cramer venturi cooker hood, both lights are working fine but nothing from the extract! Has anyone had, and fixed, this problem and willing to share their experiences, or have a user manual that they could share? Thanks in advance Robin
  3. Dear All, not sure if the following will help anyone but we hope so. The story so far. We own a 2014 Lunar Clubamn SR, not that the Van has ought to do with the problem we have been experiencing. It did come with a Dometic TALL slim fridge and for want of a better word supposed freezer, the freezer does freeze but I’m guessing you know what I’m alluding too. In around October last year - 2019 our fridge on the odd occasion would alarm, beeping madly for twenty seconds or so then stopping. At first I thought (as you would ) that the door was open, so we would open and close it and the alarming would stop, however, as time passed the frequency of alarm got more and more, we tried closing the door, pushing the door, opening and closing the door, some times it would stop and sometimes it would continue on for as long as it had a desire to continue on. Research he said, I’ll do some research, just to see if others may have experienced the same problem, and lo and behold, YES, it’s a common problem. Solutions I said, search for solutions and YES, there where some indicators of what may be wrong, some people said it’s condensation on the wires, some said it’s condensation on the light fitting it’s self. Write to Dometic I thought, so I did, NO ANSWER, so I wrote again, still no answer, I have to say it’s the third time of writing to Dometic only to be ignored, do not bother wasting your time, that’s the first tip, don’t write to Dometic they won’t respond, they are useless. So I took the control panel off the top of the fridge, the wires were dry, I took the light unit cover off, dry, I wiped every thing, but to no avail, now it was alarming constantly or when it felt like it, we had a deacon in the fridge, if we put the heating on it would alarm, if we put the cooker on it would alarm, I thought gas issue, no idea why I thought that, we tried it on electric, ALARM,we tried it back on gas, then on 240v, then on 12v then on gas again, it alarmed in the night, it alarmed whilst we watched tv, it ******* alarmed at will. I started to Talk Ro it, I begged it to let us sleep, yes yes I know what you’re thinking turn it off, we had stuff in it, I decided to call Keith caravan fitter at our caravan dealer in desperation, and he said, “no idea” I laughed hysterically. I can’t be the only one I said, he said take a look at the door latch it may have a micro switch in it, so I did, no micro switch that I could see, still nothing from Dometic, however, whilst checking the latch I happened to observe that the catch was, wait for it, slightly at the minutest of angle, possibly as a result of the latch catching the catch as it closed, so I straightened it up, undid two screws and squared it, guess what, we slept all night to the tune of yes you have it. NOTHING, silence, no alarm, no sound from the fridge. So remember if your fridge starts alarming when it shouldn’t, don’t bother trying to get an answer for the manufacture Dometic, take a look at the CATCH first. It might just be squiffy a bit like me as I celebrated a good nights sleep. We truly hope this helps unlike those that work for Dometic. we are currently in Spain it’s the end of January and hot, we have ice in the freezer and the G&T are very tasty, it’s been 20 degrees today, here in sunny Benidorm. regards all
  4. Hoping the collective knowledge can help. After 20+ years of caravanning, we finally got a TV, although only used on one trip so far. We are going away to the CMC Longleat site. We know that there are TV aerial points on the bollards, but have no experience using these. Our van is a 2018 Lunar clubman (No snickering please). Fitted in the battery box is a "F" type socket. There are two "F" types in the van, as well as 2x standard aerial sockets. I know the standard aerial sockets are wired into the Status aerial on the roof (via amplifier). What I don't know is how the "F" types are wired. The handbook goes into good detail on using the on board aerial, but does not mention the "F" type sockets at all. I have seen on other posts that you can get F-type to standard convertor plugs / sockets, but not clear if / when these maybe required Now my questions are: - When using the site bollard, what type of connection is required for the bollard end Can I use the battery box "F" type as the inlet point to the van (Rather than dangling cable around the interior of the van) - if yes, I assume that an F to standard adaptor plug required inside the van - can somebody confirm this please. Will I need to swap / alter the vans wiring. Any input will be much appreciated
  5. On a recent trip, we had some heavy rainfall and stiff winds. The lounge window and the toilet window both started letting water in, although the windows were closed. This wasn’t a drip but a trickle. On inspection, I found the area where the water was entering was where the seal ends butted up to each other. After opening the windows and drying the area, the leaks stopped. All rather strange. Has anyone else experienced this type of issue?
  6. Hi all, assistance required if possible. We’re just about to take our 2017 Lunar Clubman SR in for its second service tomorrow, whilst cleaning every thing out yesterday a got a shock, yep, I mean a real shock albeit very small, at first I thought it might have been static but I took my electrical tester out this morning and put the live stabby little pin, I’m not an electrician, I put it on the metal plate I believe this is aluminium in the gas locker which sits at the rear of the gas bottles and I put the negative little stabby pin on the tester on the metal hinge on the locker door, at this point I got a continuous beep from my tester, as I said I’m not an electrician, but, Im not sure if this is correct, can any one tell me what it might signify, I’d like to know before it goes into the service shop so that I’m not blinded by science. Any advice would be welcomed, thanks in advance. johnnyboy
  7. The microwave oven in our 2017 Lunar Quasar574 has just died. It is not worth repairng but need to first get it out . To save me too much trial and error and possible damage to the facia does anyone know how to remove the oven. Incidently it is one of those Daewoo Eco things that seem to be popular (sic) in this forum.
  8. Hi all, yes it’s me again with another question, this time it’s the trauma thingy pump that goes into the aquaroll, we have a 2017 Lunar Clubman SR, currently sitting in a lovely site in Kent, although the weather is rubbish. Every time we turn the water on there is a thumping sound coming from the area where the water pipe work comes into the van, directly below the seat. It can be stopped by turning the white valve which controls the pressure, but after a a time or two it starts again, if I increase or decrease the pressure the pump simply runs on, the water here is extremely limey, two questions if I may has anyone out there experienced this problem and if so do you know what’s causing it? As always from one inexperienced caravaner to you gods of caravaning out there
  9. Hi everyone, Complete caravan newbie here with no experience. I've recently just bought a small lunar ariva for summer touring with my wife and 8 month old baby. As we have no expirience in touring I was wondering if anyone could offer any advice or top tips to make our journeys run smoothly. Many thanks, Mitch
  10. Hi all, we own a 2017 lunar Clubman SR, I Put my head out of the main skylight the window in the living area and noticed four fixing holes in the skylight unit have no screws in them? There are four holes in total two each side of the long run of plastic that the blackout blind and fly scream slide along, I’m not sure that they should have screws in them, but before I go screaming to the dealer about lunar lack of quality control, which is significant, 🤪, I wondered if anyone out their with the same van has noticed the same, or has the same, should those holes be full of screws or not? any help would be appreciated, if your hole is empty, should it be filled, please?
  11. Hi, looking for some assistance with an electrics problem I have. Caravan is a Lunar LX2000 525. I have it hooked up to my mains via an adapter. All was working fine in November when it was last used. We have some family staying for a few days and are using the caravan for some extra sleeping space. Went out tonight to start getting the beds set up and have no blow heating, no hot water and no internal lights, apart from two pull string lights at the front. Sockets are working so I have been able to set up a heater and a light. As I said, everything was working the last time the caravan was used with the same setup. Checked all the fuses etc and nothing has tripped or blown. Any suggestions welcome.
  12. Hi for those of you out there that are having phantom tracker ringing you saying your alarm has been activated. .. I have a Lunar Clubman 2017 model. Every time I come back from a trip I started getting calls from phantom. The caravan was on my drive and no alarm was heard, even at 1am. After trying a few settings it was still the same and ended up telling phantom not to call unless is was moving! This got worse and went off 9 times in week from my last trip. On speaking to phantom they confirmed it was a PIR activation, even though I had covered it up as a part of my own checks. The siren was also quiet which I only heard once Apparently Phantom say there are faulty PIRs from Sergeant on 2017 and 2018 Lunars and Swifts. They said to contact Sergeant who will replace it. They say the fault is with the PIR, I noted it does not activate the alarm anyway and the siren is almost non existent. On speaking to Sergeant they say the extra power for the tracker interferes with the PIR, anyway they are sending a replacement. Hope this may help someone else, cheers 😉
  13. I bought a lunar quasar 462 a few months ago. Having been keen campers we took the plunge because of partners illness, to go for a caravan. It is brilliant ! 1/2 hour on site and Kettle's on. We have one slight problem, the wash basin in the shower room has been somewhat vandalized by the use of mastic around the plug hole. I have tried to take this apart but to no avail ( the drainage plate looks too small for the hole and its been glued in). It doesn't leak but it does look rather messy. Has any one any ideas how to get it out the last option is a new wash basin of which I have tried to find on the web but to no avail. Am now at a loose end.
  14. As I await the delivery of our Lunar Clubman SR, I started looking for a new leisure battery. As most of our use is off grid, and we have a motor mover, I figured I wanted around 110Ah battery, ideally NCC grade A or B. After scouring the van's handbook, I could not find info on physical size of battery, so I contacted Lunar, who advised the battery box size. The stated size is width 350, depth 180, height at front (outboard)250, at rear (inboard)190. After much digging, I found a battery at a good price, with a long warranty. The only issue is that the width is stated at 354. Further digging shows this to be a fairly standard width. My question is, can anyone with a 2018 Clubman tell me what capacity their battery is, and its physical size. (I guess that the same box is used on any of the clubman range) Thanks guys
  15. Hello So to add to my ongoing repair list of our Saros, I collected van from storage last week in the dark, only to find that 4 of the 6 amber side marker lights are not working/working properly. I have emailed Lunar spares but no reply from them, also trawled the web looking for exact replacements but so far have not been able to find them. Have any fellow Lunar owners sourced these before? Thanks Simon
  16. Hi All I've just finished adding a 3 position switch to our 2017 Lunar Clubman ES. The bathroom ceiling light has a nightlight facility but Lunar didn't add extra switches to use this facility. The main pull switch turned off ALL the lights in the bathroom. Originally, the water pump used to turn off the lights when operated but this hasn't happened after they got replaced under warranty. The replacement lights have a different switch fitted to the centre of them. I used a 3 position switch so that I could turn off the vanity lights or turn on the Lunar night light that I fitted to the base of the wardrobe. To get at the wires, make sure the main light switch is off. Remove the ceiling light by prising out the white portion of the light using a new stanley knife blade. This then reveals four screws, the ones that you need to remove are the 2 larger ones. The light can then be lowered revealing the wiring. There will be 2 pink and blue wires joined together. These need to be separated, one goes the the light switch and the other goes to the vanity light. I then ran a wiring rod between the ceiling board and the polystyrene foam in the direction of the wardrobe. Drilling a 20mm hole in the ceiling inside the wardrobe. I just drilled enough to get through the ceiling board and no further. I removed the foam with a small scredriver giving access to the rod. I then ran a loop of thinwall wire back to the ceiling light by pulling gently on the rod. The red wire then needs to cut and crimped onto the separated pink and blue wires. The other end of the red wire can be fitted to a normal switch or a 3 position switch if the extra night light is needed. The earth for the extra night light was attached to the earth in the cupboard overhead light. I hope this is of use someone as it drove me mad and am glad that I've managed to sort it. We spend a lot off grid and so wanted to be more in control of our 12v usage.
  17. Hi We have bought a brand new Lunar Alari,a from a dealership up North about 6 weeks ago. We have taken the caravan to Exmouth where we haver spent 3 days setting it up on a season pitch. Last Sunday the control panel shut down. The main electric unit continued to work. I rebooted everything but could not get it to work. The dealership are trying to find out how to solve the problem as we cannot move it off the caravan site now as we are set up for the season. Logistically it is not possible. I thought I would ask if anyone else had an issue like this and how the problem was resolved to minimise the waste of our time. This is our 3rd caravan in 8 years and we have never had a major issue like this where potentially it needed to be taken off the pitch. What are our rights as a consumer in this situation - we have already paid for our pitch for the season. Thanks in advance. ....
  18. Hi all. Just wondering, when purchasing a brand new van, factory fitted with external BBQ point, is the hose connector normally provided, or do you have to purchase seperatly? Your input will be much appreciated
  19. I wonder if anyone can help please? I've just bought a Lunar Stellar 2010 privately and had it serviced by a recognised repairer. When we took it out for the first time the Truma Ultraflow water pump only let out a slow trickle of water from the cold tap. Over the next few days it stopped completely and there was no red light on the pump switch and the pump doesn't activate. I tested the pump on site with a 12v charger and it worked perfectly. I cleaned the contacts on the van socket and on the pump plug as both were dirty. I tried another 10v fuse and the red light on the pump switch came on for an instant and then went out, presumably blowing the fuse? As I had left the fuse out the toilet wouldn't flush so I put the same fuse back in and the toilet flushed fine so I'm not sure whether the fuse had actually blown? I've also tried WD40 on both plug and sockets contacts with no success. Can anyone suggest anything else I can try in order to resolve the problem please? Many thanks. Mike

  21. We have a 2017 Lunar Delta TI bought in August last year. We have used it twice since then and on the last trip one rear light cluster started playing up. On braking, the offside indicator would also come on and vice versa. The dealer tried to fix it by changing the light bulbs(??) but to no avail and they have also checked for cross-connections between the 13 pin plug and the main control unit. It now appears that these light clusters are not able to be removed from the 'van to ascertain the problem (short circuit, crossed wires, etc). The only remedy is to remove the whole of the back panel to get to the lights!! Unbelievable to us. We did phone Lunar and, after someone speaking to someone else, confirmed this was the only way to get to the light fittings. Our dealer didn't want to undertake this major work so we are currently waiting for Lunar to authorise a 'return to factory' so they can do it. I wondered if anyone else had had a problem like this and, if so, was it dealt with like this or is there another way? We are booked to go away in March and at present the van is still waiting to be sent back to factory as the dealer has had no date for that yet!
  22. Our daughter moved to Cardiff along time ago now, perhaps not quite such a move, but she went to university there and never came back! It's really not something we expected but actually I see the attraction for her and her partner. Hence we know the roads between south Lincolnshire and South Wales so well, both solo and towing. Many happy fortnight's have been spent in Tenby where her partner hales from and it seems along time ago now from when we introduced our son to the pleasures of caravanning and Tenby at 3 weeks old. That was 2005 and we were in our, still relatively, new Ace Award Morningstar. Lovely open 4 berth van with a big Issabella awning for the family members to sleep in when the occupancy reached 5 or more! Time passed and working life dictated a change so the Morningstar was sold. A sad day for us and especially as this was the only van we had ever had as brand new. It was never a problem, no niggles out of the showroom it just did what it was supposed to do! We missed it. The times we said "if we still had the van we'd be at so and so park this weekend wouldn't we?". 2017 saw alot of caravans. No I don't mean we had several vans and sold them all, I'm talking about the process we all go through (unless we're unique, but I don't think so) of visiting as many dealers as possible looking at vans, setting a budget and then lifting the budget to fit the type of van you really want, trying to assess all the layouts and the pros and cons, reading reviews, going to shows. ........... Eurika ! Elddis Affinity 554. That's it! That's the one we want! Now to find one ? Continued. ....
  23. Hello all, My van is fitted with a Trumatic S3002 (I think), along with Ultraheat and Ultrastore. It appears to have some kind of blown air heating (see picture). However, when the heater is running (using gas but plugged into mains power), no air seems to come out of the vents. I'm almost certainly doing something wrong or lack knowledge but I appreciate any ideas you may have as to how to enable this feature. On another matter, if I want to use mains power for the heater instead of gas, do I simply use the dial on the right instead of the one on the left? Cheers!
  24. Just looking at the current Thetford catalogue for cooking and cooling appliances, it says that the Aspire Mk 2 comes with 2 oven shelves, but our new Lunar only came with one. Are we missing one or do all Aspire Mk 2s fitted to vans only come with only one shelf?
  25. Well, last Friday, after a wait of nearly 5 months, we became the proud owners of a new Lunar Solaris 462. The 2 hour handover by Grantham Caravans was very good with all the van’s services powered up and demonstrated. The van had been well prepared and we didn’t feel rushed; only after we were fully satisfied with everything did we do the paperwork and drive home. Family matters last weekend prevented us from taking advantage of Grantham Caravans’ offer of a free first night at a local site, but it gave us an opportunity to get to know the van better, have the wheels balanced (50g and 60g weights required) and load up ready for a few days away the following week. Our drive is gravel and this is the first time we’ve had a van without a pneumatic jockey wheel, and the way it just dug into the gravel and slid, not rotating, was alarming. Fortunately, a quick trip to our local caravan shop and the purchase of an Al-Ko Soft Wheel provided the answer, a fit, form and function replacement to the standard hard Al-Ko wheel without any of the disadvantages of a pneumatic tyre. The only other problem we’ve found is the high noseweight, measured at just over 80Kg when leaving the dealer, 5Kg over our car’s limit, so careful loading is going to be essential. So, after a couple of nights away are we still smiling? Quite definitely, yes! Our van is well made, everything works and it is a lovely place to be. The shower puts many in club sites to shame, the blown air system is near-silent, the beds are comfy and the LED lighting options are amazing. Well done Lunar and thank you Paul at Grantham Caravans.
