  1. Hi all Just a quick question before our maiden voyage in our 2009 Alpine 4. The attached shows our van has a toilet/shower combo, and as you can see there might be some patching up in terms of some of the sealing. So, 2 questions: 1 - how best to patch these joins up? 2- more conceptually, are there any sprays (adhesive or otherwise) that people recommend for the walls to assist with water resistance and the like, that can be used on the walls? Just trying to prolong the life of this as much as possible
  2. Hi A crack about 2 inches long has developed in the shower tray on my 2016 Sterling Eccles 590. Another crack has also developed on one of the shower side panels. To add insult to injury as the van is just out of warranty Swift want nothing to do with it. The shower isn't used that much so I am at a loss as to how this has happened. Any feedback on effective repairs would be welcomed.
  3. We have been considering purchasing a new Adora Seine 2019. We have noticed that the shower isn't fully lined and wondered if there would be any potential for leaking. Does anyone have any experience of using the shower enclosure on this model and has the seal deteriorated over time? Also how well does it work having the heated radiator inside the shower enclosure? Thanks
  4. The shower door in my caravan will not stay closed. I know the magnetic strip needs changing but the doors won't align correctly for the strip to stick. I have taken the doors off and tried to realign but without success. The last owners put a clip on the door to stop them from swinging open but it doesn't work once your inside the shower. Does anybody have any advice about the doors or know where I can get another set of these clips from so I can put a set on the inside? Thanks
  5. Hi. .. I have a Senator 6 and the shower valve is defective. I've got a replacement but I can see how to get the old one out. There is a white plastic cover in the corner of the shower cubical in which the valve is mounted, but I can not see how to remove it. There are no screws or clips. It seems to be a snap in type system, I'll pulled and poked but not got it off. Before I break it trying. .. can anyone explan how to remove this cover? Many thanks Mat
  6. We made the move to Swift this year with a dealer special Corniche 19/4. Mostly very pleased with it. However, one annoying and potentially damaging thing is that on both occasions we've towed it so far, the semi-circular shower door has come off its rail and fallen into the cubicle. There's a catch which is supposed to prevent the door moving and it has been set on both occasions. Is this something that anyone else has experienced and have you any suggestions to prevent it?
  7. Three years ago I was in the fortunate position of being able to afford to buy a brand-new caravan. With no previous experience of caravanning I naïvely thought that the service provided by caravan dealers would be broadly similar the service provided by franchised car dealers. I further expected that the customer service provided by caravan manufacturers would be similar to that provided by car manufacturers. How wrong I was! In my book when you spend £20,000 plus on something it’s reasonable to expect that it will stand up to normal use for a period of at least five years, maybe even ten, before the product starts to show signs of significant deterioration and age. Having carried out much research before deciding which brand of caravan to buy we were persuaded by Lunar’s claims of “lightweight luxury”. On paper at least the van offered what we were looking for, was a good tow match for my XC60 and looked amazing. For the first year we were very pleased with our gleaming white “home from home” Since then unfortunately it’s been ongoing catalogue of problems, mainly cosmetic but nonetheless irritating. Discolouration of various parts of the van has been the main problem, locker surrounds which have turned sort of magnolia colour (Not a good look unless you have a Bailey), the shower cubicle, grab handles (again the magnolia effect), decals which have a blistered, and so on. Representations made to the dealer have fallen on deaf ears. In my experience at least Lunar clearly do not give a fig about the service they provide to people who have invested many thousands of pounds in their product, or I assume their reputation. Assistance from the dealer has also left a great deal to be desired with a “rolling of the eyes” every time a new problem is mentioned. Unlike some on this forum we are fortunate that the problems we are experiencing, to date at least, are only cosmetic. I can’t begin to think how tedious it must be to deal with some dealers and manufacturers where a more significant problem is involved. The UK caravan industry needs to get its act together. Based on my experience at the moment component quality is poor and customer service standards are a disgrace.

  9. Has anybody ever tried to convert a Whale Elegance Mixer tap to a shower mixer? Just wondered if it is possible and how easy / difficult it is please?
  10. I have just purchased a new 460/2. I went away for the first time this weekend. I love the van - apart from one thing (so far). The shower does not run at a consistent temperature. The water fluctuates from cold to very hot (too hot to stand in). I cannot believe that this is how the shower should perform. Does anyone have any experience/solutions to this problem - other than using the site facilities!
  11. Hi, I have just been out for our first trip in our Bailey Pegasus GT65 Verona caravan which was manufactured in April this year. I am extremely pleased with the caravan with no major faults to report. One minor fault though is the shower head. No matter how I try I cannot get the shower head to fit into the shower head holder. It is such a simple fault that I am starting to think perhaps it is me but no matter how I turn the holder or twist the head I cannot get it to fit. Has anybody else had this problem and if so how did you fix it? I have attached a picture to show the problem. Kind Regards Mark
  12. New caravan has been at the dealers today to have a new shower wall fitted as the original was scraped or burnt in one corner. Lunar sent a plastic specialist company to do the work. While there they spotted our spray bottle of shower clean similar to: http://www. waitrose. com/shop/DisplayProductFlyout?productId=26438&source=sho_&utm_source=google%2Bshopping&utm_medium=organic%2Bgs&utm_campaign=google%2Bshopping&gclid=CL7HweyYrsUCFYuWtAodhw0AHw&gclsrc=aw. ds A message was left to tell me not to use it in the future. We use this stuff at home but also for a long time in our old Bailey with no I'll effects, it seems very mild. Any one else do this? John
  13. Sorry if this is a stupid question but I am a newbie to caravans. I've recently bought a Lunar Meteor 1994 2 berth caravan with an end-kitchen, and a toilet/shower/washbasin next to the kitchen. Today I've been trying to sterilize the water pipes using a solution of Milton Fluid, as recommended in the handbook. There is an outlet hose connector on the RHS near the toilet, so I connected a waste pipe to this and put it into a waste-hog, ran the kitchen taps and checked underneath and there was water running from somewhere. I then noticed that the pipe had broken away from the outlet, so that needs mending, however I then noticed another, newer looking outlet at the back, near the sink. Its going dark and the van is standing on some very muddy ground, so I don't fancy clambering underneath tonight. My question is, is it normal for such a small van, with the sink near to the bathroom to have two separate waste water outlets, one for the kitchen sink, and another for the bathroom, or might the previous owners have fitted a new one to a newrear outlet, and the broken one is redundant? Or am I expected to cart around two separate waste water containers for such a small caravan? Chris
  14. I have a 2010 Sterling Eccles Coral and the magnet has split/come off the perspex shower door. I have got a new magnet but try as I might I cannot get anything to hold it to the door. I have tried contact adhesive, double sided heavy duty carpet tape and a trade adhesive called " Sticks Like Poo" ( not the real last word for obvious reasons !) and it still comes off. The door and magnet have been cleaned with thinners and yet I am still having problems. My local Sterling dealer has a new genuine part but cannot say if it has adhesive on it ( i dont know why they cannot tell me this!!)......help ! Any suggestions gratefuly accepted before my sanity runs out. .........
  15. First post here, so hello everyone. .. Every since I bought my Eccles Sport 585 about a month ago I have been wondering is it possible to convert the shower cubicle into a closet/wardrobe/storage? So far, no one in the family has even stepped into the cubicle, not even out of curiosity, so using it as an actual shower seems so far fetched I'm more likely to have my morning shower under the drinking water tap (might get some funny looks!). Therefore as space is at a premium in any caravan I started to wonder if it could be used for anything else. ... 1) a wet closet for wet coats etc 2) a dry closet for evening wear and formal attire 3) general storage, fold-up chairs, mini surf board etc 4) dog house for the pooch after he's run through every puddle in delamere forest Given the above has anyone done this or come up with a more innovative use for this often unused space? Thanks mdh
  16. Do any of the Eriba's have shower facilities ?
  17. Just wondered how often you are meant to clean waste pipes sinks drainage etc. I have bought some of the thetford cleaner. Is this acceptable or are there easier and better ways of doing this or more vigorous products.
  18. Hi there, As a very contented owner of our Abbey GTS 215 since purchase new in 2008, having a problem with the Shower. The flow to it is irratic and water surges when showering. Thought it might be an air lock up to the shower head so dropped it down to the floor when starting. Did not solve the problem and the pump is clearly straining and pumping in surges. The flow does not actually stop, but just constantly slows down and then surges forward again The pump is noisy as this happens. I am running both the gas and electric water heating functions at the same time as we were told this would maintain constant water temperature during a shower. Just wondered if this was a problem anyone else had encountered and if there was a simple explanation and solution. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks Louth
  19. So, we have a small issue with our shower. .temperature control. I've come up with what ( I think ) is a good idea, but wondered if you guys agree, or have any better ideas. ( Using the on-site facilities doesn't count. ) Our system: Two seperate taps for shower, hot & cold. Pump is switched from pressure sensor, not micro switches. The problem: When we first turn the shower on, it takes a little fiddling to set the temperature to what is required. Then, when we turn the taps off to "lather up", we have to repeat the fiddling, whilst dancing round under first cold, then scalding water etc. My (intended) solution: I figure that once the taps are set, there is no need to move them until finished. It's also unlikey that anyone else will run water whilst someone is in the shower. So, I was thinking of fitting a pullcord switch on the ceiling, in the shower. That way, when we want to turn water flow off, we pull the cord, which switches off the pump, and stops water. When we need to get wet again, pull the cord and on comes the water, at the same temp as before. The downside is, that if we forget and leave the switch off, no other taps will run, but that isn't much of a problem. So, do you think this will work? Do you have any other solutions? The floor is yours. ...
  20. I don't really dilly dally when it comes to showing in our caravan and I'm usually in and out before the hot water runs cold. But my wife would like a little longer to condition, exfoliate, or whatever she does! So, apart from spending A LOT of money on a 14ltr hot water storage tank, is there any way of getting more time in a hot shower? Or do I just send her to the shower block
  21. hi all i hope someone can help i've got a 1997 lunar solar. it has an exteral whale high flow pump and a whale prssure switch. crystal filter also fitted. i'm now on my 4th pump! i purchased a reich 19L. after changing the one way cold valve i worked out that the pump was faulty! took it back and puchased a crystal 12l pump. although vastly improved the pressure still wasnt great so i kept this as spare and purchased a whale high flow pump and assembly. this was no better. figured i had another faulty pump so changed it for a new whale high flow. bingo, i had acceptable pressure. however, its not great still. whilst it's useable the kitchen tap is slow and the whale shower head has just about enough pressure - as you raise it above youor head it gets really slow but works. my friend has a longer van with all the same kit and he gets great pressure. Surely I haven't got another faulty pump? Any ideas welcome.
  22. Hi, I'm new to the forum, but been caravaning for the last 30 years or so. . We purchased a Coachman 460 Pastiche Platinum Special edition new last July after suffering Elddis problems! It was brand new stock, straight from the factory, not one that had been on display. Since then we have used it for around 23 days. We have just returned from a few days away and I noticed some silicon had come adrift on the outside of the shower tray, but this is what I found when I looked into the bottom corner of the inside of the shower tray, just by where the door closes! The top crack is on the panel join, but the bottom crack is within the shower tray itself. With normal hand pressure on the base the crack opens to more than 1/8", which to me means that the tray is being pulled up by the side panels, and is therefore under tension when stood on, or the base is not being supported correctly. The length of the sealant crack is 3", the length of the crack in the shower tray is around 2 ¾". The caravan is under warranty, and I expect a company such as Coachman will put it right correctly, but I wonder if there is a design flaw here, as the caravan has hardly been used, and both my wife and I are fairly lightweights, and nothing has ever been stored or transported in the shower. I know of at least of one other caravan purchased October last year with the same problem and the shower in that hasn't even been used! I'm interested to know if it has happened to any others with the circular shower design. I rang Plas-Tech the shower tower manufacturer offering photos for their comment but seems they will only deal with Coachman regarding warranty work, so we'll just have to wait and see. ..!

  23. Love my Valencia, however there are some minor guarantee issues that need sorting and I can see opportunities to improve the design for sat TV and in board tank. My main worry, which I have asked the dealer to look at at the end of January, is a poor join behind the concertina door in the shower wall. I have since looked at new vans which are the same! Can other Unicorn owners look at the join between wall and door frame in their shower and report to this tipic with regards to appearance, acceptability and quality of seal. John
