Lunar Clubman SE annoying blue lights keeping me awake

Recommended Posts

Having recently changed vans to a Lunar Clubman SE I have become somewhat annoyed by the blue lights on the control panel above the door keeping me awake at night. Whilst I know you can pull the concertina door across that makes the bedroom stuffy and hot.   Solution  put a piece of card across the lit area. It will slide in between the plastic surround and the panel and completely block out the blue lights.

As for the blue lighting on the fridge a tea towel draped over does the trick here.

One has to wonder why in particular, the fridge does not have the option to turn off the lights at night.

That would require their engineers to actually be caravaners. ...

The blue light on our fridge lights up the caravan at night, a curved piece of Blu-Tac with a small piece of kitchen foil attached on the right hand side of the light allows enough light to find your way in the dark without it shining into the bedroom area.

The tiny blue lights on the fridge and control panel have never bothered us.   I did invert the Alde control panel to show a black screen with white digits rather than the other way around.

It's not the light from caravan equipment that wakes us, it's our bladders!

 

The light from the voltmeter gives us just enough light to be able to see our way around in the dead of night, on our many trips to the loo.

 

Other than the loo visits, we sleep our best in the caravan.   Last week I did 11. 5 hours with just 2 visits to the WC and was straight back to sleep after each.

 

Even daylight doesn't stop us from sleeping!  It must be my Civil Service training! ;)

Same here, I sympathise with those who crave the dark for sleeping, works out OK for us, she likes to have a little light and it doesn’t bother me either way.

I close my eyes when I go to sleep - can't see a thing!

Don't have anything to drink at least two hours before you go to bed. That will prevent an early visit to the loo. 

 

If you drank four wines and the collapsed on the bed because of them then you WILL not only be bladdered but your bladder will wake you in the early hours. Depend on that. :P

Like wise - I thought that is how you were meant to sleep?

we used to have a Lunar and we just draped the tea towel over the fridge light, I couldn't see the other one  and the alarm light never bothered me either.

My last drink (water) is at around 19.30

 

4 wines would take over 4 weeks to drink, mostly if we crack open a bottle, after about a month, the last third of it it goes in a sauce / casserole.

 

At home, we've tried to be alcoholics, but fail miserably.  Occasionally, we may fancy a G & T, or a single malt, but as it is about 10 feet from where we are sitting, mostly we can't be bothered!  It took me 3 years to work my way through a bottle of Talisker.

Thanks for the offer, TBH I thought that there would be more than one!  :)   I'll persevere, I'll make myself have a Laphroaig later, the Talisker has all gone.  Cheers 🥃

I am also one to make it stretch.  Why drink it all at once when it can be savoured over the years as and when you fancy a shot?  For the first time in many years we bought a bottle of Nederberg Rose to have at Christmas as seldom drink wine.  Cannot even remember when last I had a glass of wine which would have been either Black Tower, Blue Nun or Mateus Rose.

Correction to that, there is just a drop left of the Talisker and I've now finished off the Laphoaig. 

 

In order to make buying Christmas presents for me a bit easier for OH & two of our children, I now have an extra two bottles added to my collection, for which they will reimburse me later.   The other 5 will have to think of something else! lol

 

Christmas will be a little merrier! :)  Thank you children - Cheers!
