Hi CT users, my first post (somee great content and posts I've read so far). title says it all really, I'm after little gems of ideas or others experience of common remedies for problems caused by run off or escape water ingressing at weak points such as locker seals, window seals. I've seen the Fiamma drip stop product (adhesive strip) but doesn't look like a longterm solution for its cost. j strip drip stops, bars or rubber of-the-shelf products or diy improvisation. Even seen tile edging/beading (e.g. B and Q type stuff) on YouTube being used (though ugly). Thanks in advance and hopefully others would benefit too.
Hi Folks. We bought a 20 year old Swift Alouette as our first full size caravan (we had an 1980's esterel folding caravan for years!) Its been really well looked after but spent the last few years not being used so we have a few issues we need to fix before it gets its first of many (I hope) runs! Ok. .... 1. Carver Cascade2 water heater - Its leaking. .. It seems that this arm that goes through the middle of it is broken (we think it had water in it that froze). Has anyone any experiance in fixing one of these? Any ideas on what this part is called and where (online) can I buy one? We never had running water in the esterel so as you can imagine I was so dissappointed to discover this was broken. .. 2. The grey window seals have melted into the windows (at first I thought they had been sealed) I need advice on where I should get new ones cheap. what should I ask for (Do I need to measure?) are they hard to fit by myself (I'm handy at stuff but I have two small babys so my time is limited). Can I get ones that won't melt again? Also I need to replace two arms so. . is there a particular type I should ask for? 3. Electrics - Some of my sockets don't work or trip,,, Could this be a simple replacement fuse? Where do I buy fuses? 4. Gas heater - We would like to be able to use this as we camp on the west coast of Ireland (ALOT) so it will be needed. The Gas control knob has come away from what ever part it should be linked to. .. Is this something I can fix myself? Any advice on it? 5. Door Runner - We have a door on runners attached to the roof that sections off the back of the van (handy!) Its come off the runner and the runner itself is coming away from the roof. Has anyone else had to replace this runner? Advice? 6. Cushions on the seats - The end of the cushion curls up which is fine when sitting. .. Is there a more comfrotable way to arrange them for sleeping without having the curl up bit in your back! 7. Drawer unit in the middle - Can this be taken out to make a U-shaped lounge? Is this a difficult process? Advice? Wow. . when you write it down it looks as though we should have bought a tent but it is in good nick for 20 years old. Thanks for reading and I really look forward to your advice and tips. Ruthierose.
