Make & Model of Towcar / Toad

Caravan / Motorhome / Static (Make and model)

Year of manufacture (Caravan / Motorhome / Static)

  1. Getting ready for first travelling trip in the Camper van. What has become clear is that space is a premium with 2 adults and 2 teenagers plus all the essential items! Realised do not have a hose for filling the water tank, at home I use the Garden hose , we do not drink water from tank. Question how long a hose is practical without being massively oversized. Seems to be a choice of 5m,10m and longer.
  2. Hello, we have a 4 berth Bailey Pageant Champagne caravan. It’s rather old (2002) but it’s our introduction to caravanning. It keeps throwing problems at us and so far we have been able to work things out. Until today. We have just shown our grand children and they are very excited to learn we are taking a trip this weekend. But we have a problem. The kitchen tap is dribbling virtually no water because it’s literally pouring out Underneath! I presume a pipe has broken but how on earth can I find it? I can’t see any obvious way to get to the pipe work. Urgent help needed. Can anybody help please?
  3. Hi On a recent holiday trip with my Bailey Orion 530/6 and on the first night I went to put on my Whale blow air heater system to find it kept tripping the main MCB. On investigation by the supplier the unit was full of water. The supplier says all gaskets etc. .. where in tact and therefore its not a warranty replacement. My local dealer says it must have had a hose pipe up the flue due to the amount of water. I find this extremely hard to believe since it is stored securely on a Gold Secure site and the caravan had only not been off the site since the last time it was used it and the heater was working ok. Has anyone else had this problem? I dont want to replace the unit to find I have another expensive repair again in the future due to the root cause issue not being addressed. Thank you
  4. Hi everyone Here we go, post No. 1 As above, is their an alternative to the Whale Pressure Switch for operating the external submersible pump ? See photo. One that will be a direct replacement or a close to as possible. ... would be good. I have seen on the internet some pressure switches made by 'Comet' two types, a simple one and a digital more complex and expensive one. .. has anyone changed out a Whale pressure switch for one of these or any similar units and are they any better than the Whale pressure switch which I find has been a little temperamental and sometimes frustratingly difficult to set right to operate the pump. Any help much appreciated Thanks Bob
  5. Our first trip in our brand new caravan fitted with Truma Ultraflow combi boiler. During last night the caravan flooded. The problem is that when we turn the water pump on water is spurting out of the Smart Switch. Any ideas why this would suddenly happen? Was working fine yest afternoon and evening. VID-20200719-WA0000.mp4
  6. We took our 2018 Unicorn Cabrera out for a short trip this weekend to check that everything is ok for the coming season. The main issue was the water pump not always working. It would work fine for half a day and then stop pumping altogether. I really didn't enjoy going out in the wind and rain to it ! Has anyone else had similar problems or do I have a mechanical/ electrical failure to solve?
  7. I have an Xplore 586 and I just cannot get the water pump to work. The leisure battery is fully charged at 13.6 amps, everything else works from the battery including all lights , but the red light for the pump switch on the control panel does not come on when the master switch is turned on. The external pump socket from the aquaroll is getting battery power (checked with voltage meter) and the pump fuse is fine. There isn't any other isolator switch or anything but I just cannot get the water into the caravan - I connect the aquaroll pump the the caravan, switch on the master switch, then switch on the pump switch (which fails to light up). Nothing comes out of the taps. Any suggestions appreciated?
  8. Hi all I am a first time caravanner and have just bought a 2nd hand Lunar Solar Eclipse 525. Does anyone know whether this model has a water filter in the system? My handbook and paperwork provided don't specify. Thank you for any help! MarieB
  9. Water drips from the base of my whale water inlet plug,tried tightening screws,but it still dribbles,can anyone suggest a answer?
  10. My Whale water inlet drips water AFTER the pump is removed for some time. IE the water thats in the system is finding a way out through the inlet. Could this simply be a case of replacing the non return valve in the inlet?
  11. We have just bought a touring caravan and it has been taken to the site by the dealer. It is a Sterling Eccles Solitaire 2012. We plan to leave it there for the rest of the season. I have not had a tourer for 30+ years and can see a lot has changed. I have bought various accessories, but I have no idea how to connect the Aquaroll to the van. I have read that the caravan has a pump built in, but don’t know what I need to get the water from the Aquaroll to the van. There is some sort of fitting on the side of the van. Is it just a piece of hose I need or a submersible pump? Are the fittings on the side of the van universal, or do I need a specific type of adaptor for our van? I can’t go to the site and have look as we are not allowed on site until 4 July. We bought the van for our kids and grandkids and already have a static on the same site. We were planning to go up for the weekend Of the 4 July, using both vans, but need to be confident we can get the water sorted out when we get there.
  12. Hi guys, just wondering what's the largest water heater you've come across? Most I can find are 10 - 12 liters Thanks, Ross.
  13. Hi, I was looking at inline booster pumps and wondering if I added one before the water inlet for my shower if it will increase the pressure coming through the shower head? If anyone has any information I would much appreciate it! Thanks, Ross.
  14. I am making / installing an automatic on-board water tank filling system to my 2009 Bailey Senator Arizona. I made one of these for my Lunar Delta about 20 years ago. Now I have another Caravan with an onboard tank I find it annoying how complicated Bailey have made it to fill the on-board tank. I have to remove the cushions from the rear locker, lift the rack, "set" two change-over valves, (correct combination, depending if I am using external, internal or filling internal from external). Then switch the electric pump to "fill", wait until it's filled, and then switch the valves as required for "operation". I looked on the market – there is NOTHING, nothing on Ebay, Nothing on “The Web”, nothing on YouTube, nothing in the Forums on how to do this… No gadgets, no advice, no discussion – maybe I’m the only one that wants this ???? I have added an Carver / Truma Crystal filter inlet into the side of the caravan directly next to the on-board tank. I will use my old Truma external pump to fit this fitting. This will fill the tank directly. I am fitting a relay (in a small plastic box to be neat) along with an "audible" alarm to warn me the external pump is operating. As my tank already has a "low level" sensor and a "high level sensor" (to stop the on-board [in fill mode] pump when full) it will be an easy job to do. I am fitting 2 switches - 1) Off/Fill to High Level 2) Fill to low level only (reserve level). If anyone is interested, I am going to document this fully with Photos on my Blog as it will be too detailed (and the photos) for here: https://tony-sparks.co.uk/blog/2019/09/13/automatic-on-board-water-tank-fill-system-tracker/ You will need to cut a hole in the side of your van to fit a Truma (or pump interface of your choice). You will need to be "capable" with 12v Electrics, and able to wire a 12v relay and a couple of switches. I *may* consider making the "control" boxes when I have finished mine - if there is any demand- but I may not! BTW: While you are about it (Bailey Senator Only) - I will tell you how to change the "ancient" battery on your (Secret Location) Tracker / Alarm system (mine was 10 years old and bulging - and was down to 2.2v!). Replacement battery - £14.50 delivered from Ebay! Any Comments ?
  15. Can anyone help please. Just going on first trip of the season and find a problem with the fresh water not being received into the interior water tank. The symptoms are as follows: 1. Using the Aquaroll and exterior pump the pump works but no water is received in to the caravan 2 Using a direct water supply, with valve and correct fitting, again no water is received to the interior. 3 Interior pump works and all taps. 4 The interior pump can be heard working when the tank should be filling up 4 a small metal fitting (a relay?) gets hot Nearest service is 70 miles away. Recently serviced and water system checked!!! Off on holiday on Wednesday to Plymouth! Any suggestions please
  16. Hi peeps, it him again, a quick question if I may, and, whilst this question might seam a bit mad I thought I’d enquire. We’re currently sitting in a great campsite in Kent, however, the lime levels here are extraordinary high, so high you have to wipe the kettle out every two days or you’re drinking limescale, not sure what it’s doing to those poor bu ggers out there that have to suffer it on a permanent basis, however, the question is, “ has anyone out there ever felt the need to run kettle descaler through the water system?” And, if so, did it damage it? would it damage it? Our van is a 2017 model the heating system is a sealed trauma system which runs on antifreeze so no worries with that, but the hot water system, taps and pipe work must be taking a right lime dousing at present, so I was wondering if it’s possible? as always your answers will only be shared with those that visit caravan forum, I’m looking forward to receiving your responses regards johnny
  17. 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
  18. What is the advantage of an on board tank? I can only see the disadvantages -You cannot travel with water in it because of the weight. You still need an Aquaroll or similar to fetch the water to the pitch. You have to pump the water twice. A lot of locker space is taken up. If you use it to store extra water on the pitch you still have to take the waste tank for emptying before you've used up the fresh water. I must be missing something, but what? What is the point of them?
  19. Just been away for a couple of weeks and whilst away the water system got a bit smelly (brackish) and we started getting black bits in the water, so much so that the kitchen tap blocked. I dont know what has caused it as we've never had a problem like this in 20+ years or caravanning and 30+ years of owning a boat with a stored water system. I drain the systen in the winter and give it a blow through to clear as much water as I can. We usually use the van during the winter as well. I clean the system with Puriclean at the beginning of the season and we've had perfectly clean and drinkable water this year (had about 50 nights away) right up to last week when it suddenly went foul. We were on the caravan club site at Bearsted. I cleaned the system whilst we were away with Puriclean, but the smell and bad taste was back by the time we got home. I've given it another clean again with Puriclean, leaving it in for 24 hrs and quite a lot of crud and black bits (probably algae) came out). It got a good flush out yesterday but it was a bit whiffy again this morning. I'm trying another go at Puriclean and flushing a couple of pints through every hour or so but the stuff coming out is still a bit mucky with a few black bits. Has anyone got any ideas - I'm reluctant to shove bleach down the system but I might try some Milton if this doesn't work. I'm thinking of putting Aquatabs into the Aquaroll as well when we next go away in a couple of weeks time. I used SteriTabs or Aquatabs on the boat because the water system was stored and left with water in it for weeks or months at a time and never had a problem.
  20. Hello Complete Newbie here, I am trying to install a new Reich Kama Mixer tap to my caravan. Seems very simple. .. 1. Put tap and wires through hole 2. Use ring to secure tap to work surface from below. 3. Attach wires for microswitch 4. Push fit connectors to hot and cold spigots 5. Push fit connectors to hot and cold water pipes 6. Turn on pump and hey presto. ... water pour out of the top of the push fit connectors Have tried. .. Ensuring push fit connectors are driven all the way home on the spigot Spigots are separated far enough to allow push fit connector to go over lip on spigot Buying new push fit connectors Buying new tap So I've changed all the components I can think of and still get water pouring out. If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, Richard
  21. Hi Bought an old (aluminium plate) Swift Rapide a few years ago and the rear right corner was found to be damp (namely when the maneuvering handle came off in my hand !) I scince then took all the old mastic strips off and replaced them with new and totally rebuilt the inside with new wood and thin ply. (and plugged the soggy floor with resin and plugs ). We have decorated it nicely and the rest of the caravan is lovely and dry, so it would be a shame to scrap it. However I have never really been certain it had properly resolved the issue Been in it today after a pretty damp winter and there is black mound again in the corner. After searching on here I have decided that a couple of vents should help dry it out but have also decided that it time to go to war on this for good and I dont care if its not pretty. I have seen threads on dribbly sealants, sikaflex etc etc, but wanted to tap your accumulated experience on the matter. The things exterior is never going to win a beauty pagent, so im not that fussed about how it looks particularly, I just want that water to stop getting in for a few years more while we have kids to take on holiday. I think the leak is coming in from 3 potential places: Roof ridge (looks OK but i can imagine it dripping down from there) Side - Roof Flashing / mastic strip. when I installed the new strip it was too wide for the strip, so I had to trim to trim it off a bit, and this has left it uneven with possible areas water may puddle and drip in. Side strip flashing, Its not nice under it and in all honesty id rather get rid of it completely and replace it with some hardcore tape or something that will cover up all holes and keep water out. Im beginning to consider just getting that clear gorilla tape and covering all 3 seams with it and being done with it. Please help keep the old girl dry for a while longer.
  22. Have thought for a while that we don't seem to get much hot water from the ultrastore, so did a test. Using a 1L jug, measured how much hot water we were getting. After 2l litres the water is only warm and then goes cold by about 3-4 litres. The water starts boiling hot, scalding in fact, so know heater is working. Have it running in electric only (High setting). Have tried with tap on full, and about half flow, still same amount of hot water. As this is meant to hold 10 litres, I would expect the "HOT" water to last longer. Anyone come across this? Cant be air block as hot water leaves tank at top, cold enters at bottom, not spluttering out of tap. Any Ideas?
  23. Good afternoon I have filled my van water tank and ran the water through taps and shower. The problem I have is that when I opened the bathroom tap I could feel and hear the air coming out but once that's done there is no water. Shower and other tap works fine. I have just fitted a new pressure switch as well.
  24. I now have a motorhome with on board tanks so i no longer need my Water Hog and Waste Hog. They are now about 13 years old but still in reasonable condition apart from the level gauge in the Waste Hogg which is broken. They are taking up space in my garage and need a new home. They are located near to Selby in Yorkshire if someone wants them. Moderators, I don't seem to be able to find the Classified section any more so please delete this post if it is against the rules to offer to give things away.
  25. Our water pressure appears to have nearly all but deminished. The pump runs, seems ok, sounds ok, but not much pressure. Any ideas would be appreciated. Someone suggested we should see if the filter is blocked but we can't work out where the filter is. Thank you Vicky
