      Forum upgrade   12/10/17

      Hi everyone, As you're probably aware, we've been in the process of upgrading the Caravan Talk forum software for a while. I can now confirm that the software has been upgraded and we're fully up to date. Please note that this new software is quite different in appearance and function, so may require a bit of relearning. We are in the process of refining the look, features and experience to make it a bit better and more familiar. If you spot any issues please let us know in the feedback forum. Unfortunately any posts between Monday morning and now have been lost. This is due to when the database snapshot was taken for the upgrade, this may also affect new members since then. We do apologise for this, but we have tried to keep disruption to a minimum. We are already aware and working on the following issues: PayPal payment issues for CT Supporters Forum design, lack of CT branding including colours Temporary loss of reviews databases Navigation bar needs refining We will keep this list up to date, so please check here before posting new updates, or to keep on tabs of our progress. The software was upgraded in order to provide you with a more secure, reliable, faster experience, whilst providing us with more tools to improve the features and options for the forum. Thank you for your continued support. Ben and the CT Team

Our front locker key will only go into the barrel part way but will still lock, with difficulty. Does anyone know of a fix for this? Otherwise what make lock is used on a 2014 Lunar.

You need to ask the question in another 7 years, when 2024 actually arrives!

Lots of 3 in 1 oil??

I oil the locks of our 2016 Lunar regularly, if one lock fails you'll need a new barrel and key.

Genuine input error. Should be 2014.

3 in 1 oil is not the best lubricant for locks and ideally should never be used - instead use a silicone based lubricant or a PTFE based one.

 

The best lubricant has always been Graphite - as in rub a soft pencil along the rough edge of the key and insert it a few times repeating the process.

You are right, my 3 in 1 is silicone based. Must have been thinking of the old days when 3 in 1 was 3 in 1!!

Ah the good old days

3 in1 as with WD40 is a brand name, I'm a fan of WD40 dry PTFE lubricant or WD40 Silicon :)

Well the key won't turn at all now so looks like drilling it out and replacing.
