  1. I have recently discovered water on the base of my front locker. It is caused by the seal around the locker opening not making contact with the inside surface of the locker door. Marks from the water and a check using a piece of paper between seal and door confirm this. As water runs down the front of the caravan it drips onto the top return edge of the locker door. Some must run down the outer surface but some runs over the cut edge into the locker and pools on the locker floor. Has anyone else found this problem and how has it been resolved. Van is due to go to a dealer in the next f
  2. Hi all . This could be a bit long winded . I recently changed my van to a 2012 clubman sb . When I inspected it at the dealers I noted a black mark on the bedroom wall . The dealer has said that it was not damp but she would replace the wall board which they did . Since I took it home I note the taped seams are coming away an there is black marks on the tape edge . I’ve also noted this past weekend the floor in the bathroom is a bit springy . Ive also noted a long scuff mark on the outside that stops at the awning rail which I only noticed when I washed the van . My
  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 c
  4. Collected brand new 2018 Elddis crusader super cyclone 10 days ago. Took the plastic trim off which covers the electrics to the back of the light switches in the cupboard as you enter the van. I was investigating if i could get a Phono lead from one side of the door to the other. I put my finger in the hole in the picture and to my shock, found it soaking wet!! Not sure how to find out where the water has got in or if there is another part of the roof which I can get to, to check if the water is in other parts of the roof?
  5. Well, I wouldn't have believed it, but Bailey did it again. Our Microwave blew up. Being an Electrical Engineer, I took it out and had a look. Guess what, The fixing screws (much too long) are fixed directly into the steel bottom of the casing. The front, Right Hand side screw had gone into the Transformer laminations, causing it to fail. - One of the screws had actually torn a section of the steel out, so the Microwave was loose anyway. This is the second time I have had this happen - Previously it was on our last van, a Bailey Senator Vermont. When will Bailey wis
  6. Hello . . I have been reading this forum for years but this is my first post . . I note there are lots of Posts regarding 'Wet Locker Doors' leaking, however I cannot find any suggested solutions and I need advice . . so here goes My Wet Locker door, located on the side of my Bailey Senator Wyoming, leaks water into the plastic tray when it rains, at first I suspected the door seal, however after playing around with Duct Tape realised it was not the seal but the door construction itself. It appears the door is constructed in several parts, the main ones being an outer frame with t
  7. I have a Lunar Clubman CK 2015 still less than 12 months old. Two days ago I had it serviced, and discovered to my horror that there is 45% wetness showing above the wheel arch in the wall panel, and along the base of the panel. My question is can the modern one-piece panels ever be dried out successfully? Or do they have to be replaced? I have not yet returned it to the original dealer, but will be doing so in a couple of days time. When I reported it over the telephone they seemed quite sceptical and insisted upon testing it themselves, which suggests that I may have a fight on my ha
  8. Having had five caravans, dating from our first, a 1987 Bailey, to our present ' van, a Coachman, the majority have had an issue with water ingress for some reason or another, but not the Coachman as yet! Now, with all these "high tech materials" used in the manufacture of caravans today, they don't seem to have stopped the dreaded H2 O getting in, only that these plastics don't absorb moisture, and so it can't be detected in the polyurethane battens and GRP linings etc. So, where does all the water go?
  9. Hi there, we have bought a six berth, twin axle 2005 Bailey Senator Carolina, it has water ingress at the front windows, my husband can do the repair which seems quite straight forward, however where are the common areas for water ingress at front windows? Is it at the seal above the windows or maybe the body seal along the top of the van? Any help or advice would be great! Thanks Debbie
  10. Hi Just sitting here looking out to sea. I have a Bailey Unicorn Valencia and we have had a lot of problems with it, water ingress,Alde heater keeps blowing a fuse,Fuse box cover broken away from retaining screws. Just a few things that have failed. It has been back to Bailey for repairs. After a few phone calls to Bailey they got on with the repairs and in less than two weeks the caravan was back at our dealers. I can't praise Bailey enough for there help and repairs to our caravan.
  11. Just brought our van back to do winter clean and get it tucked under the new cover,which we managed to poke a wee hole in first fit!!!!! Question is,where the awning rail sits against the roof,seems to have a bead of silicone between black rubber on rail and van roof. ..this is cracked and letting water in,not loads but you know what will happen. ...should this silicone even be there??Ive bought a 25m length roll of the proper 32mm wide mastic on a roll to do the rail as its due for a reseal,the van has leaked in there before and was dry but as usual I think someones just filled the gap with s
  12. Hi all I had some warranty reapirs done in late Jan/early Feb in relation to a water ingress problem awning rail and rooflight seal. The dealer completed the work to my satisfaction and want me to bring the van back in for a damp survey in the Autumn just to make sure the repairs have worked. In the meantime I had a full annual service done by a mobile engineer (who is fully approved) last Saturday and the areas where the repairs were carried out are showing between 25% - 38% still. I appreciate that it is only between 8-9 weeks since repairs had been completed and it hasn't been
  13. We purchased our first caravan in Aug 2012 (a 2005 Lunar Quasar 462) from a local dealer in West Sussex who sell Lunar dealer specials. The van has a full service history with damp tests done in 2011 and 2012, with no surprising results. I have however been to check on the van today at our local storage site and noticed a build up on mildew on the curtain linings on the front windows, in particular the right hand side. When drawing back the curtains I have noticed two slight darker patches (looks like water staining) on the cream wall board towards the front right hand corner of the van,
  14. Hello to you all, My partner Sallyann and I (Simon) have just bought an old bailey scorpio deville 4 berth (92') as our first van "to start our caravanning adventure" lol, unfortunately due to my excitement and eagerness (and low start up budget!) and lack of knowledge I managed to buy a bit of a "lemon" to say the least ! When we got it home after a trip to "Hereford" to collect our first van which I stupidly bough from a certain very large online auction site (but completed the sale off site) we started to discover all sorts of problems with just about everything and realised too lat
  15. I have been advise to start a new post with this so here goes. Hi, Please forgive me as this is my first post. I have been reading with interest the various posts about water ingress on the Alu-Tech bodies and i was wondering if any members would be willing to offer advice on a problem with my 2012 Unicorn Barcelona. If i can start with a little background information first. We struck a deal in August 2011 at our dealers whereby they would take our 2 year old motor home in part ex against a new Unicorn Barcelona to be delivered in Nov/Dec 2011. A collection date was arranged for
