Pin Holes In Heki

Recommended Posts

Ever since Heki's were first fitted to caravans it seems many years ago, on every van we have owned we have had pin holes in the same spot, can someone enlighten me, what causes the pin holes and why do they occur in exactly the same position on every van. We have been very cautious on how we close the Heki, someone has commented when watching me close it he reckoned "I had a touch like a midwife" Has anyone any thoughts on this phenomenon

Pin holes in the Heki clear plastic windows? Never ever seen or noticed them.

Pin holes in the blind, put up with it, have you seen the cost of new ones. Pin holes in the actual window mmmm. Mine are 10 years old and are like new.

As an aside about the Heki central front large window that most vans have.

 

As I lie in bed, I see the instruction label written (I assume), in 4 languages. Written in tiny, and I mean tiny, writing. I cannot read it. Should I buy some powerful binocs and then lie in bed to read them?

Will I learn something new about them? Or will it say "Don't look out of this window and gurn at your neighbours!"

 

Will someone with lots of time and patience on their hands, please find out and report back to me.

 

I am on tenterhooks waiting. .......

It's amazing what conclusions can be made when there's a lack of clarity. We still don't know if it's the blind or not :(

'Twas only 2 days ago - maybe he's away for the Bank Hol weekend. I'm sure he'll be back soon.

I didn't notice your post before but would suggest that you close the curtains or blinds at bedtime, this will help both you and your neighbours. :lol:

If trying to get rid of those annoying little pin holes in the roof blinds then I find that a small pot of Tamiya model paint in silver makes an excellent and invisible touch up method.

Your right there, taking van in today for estimate, so short Autumn/Winter breaks for now are on hold,

3000 miles, seven sites and clouted the rear end on the last site in the Somme area.
