Breakdown cover by Harry Bloomfield[_2_]
Most national cover will take you your passengers, broken down car and caravan back home, if the caravan is attached to the car at the time of breakdown. If you happen to be on holiday with the caravan on a site and the car breaks down wile you are else where, tough luck. Some insurers will just leave your caravan and expect you to later collect or abandon it. Others say it is up to the...

Cleaning Towball by DavidP[_2_]
So, a new car means a new towball which is nicely covered all over in black paint. Historically I've used sandpaper to take the majority off and then finished off any bits with wire wool dipped in petrol. How do others clean towballs?

No water by Peter Clarke
Help please! I'm trying to wake up my caravan after the winter lay-off but can't get any water out of the taps. The pump is running, there is plenty of water in the barrel, the filter and hose are not blocked, I haven't left the water heater dump valve open and I have opened the kitchen hot tap, as per instructions. But all I get out of the tap is a gentle blast of air and no water. The pump is a...

Swift Challenger Wiring Question by bert
Wake up at the back!! By chance I noticed recently that even when the 12v system is switched off at the control unit the toilet flush is still live. (2102 Challenger 530) I raised this with the dealer at service time and they seemed genuinely surprised when reporting that they had checked others and found them the same. Seems odd and I can't think of any rational idea for doing this...

VW LT35 problems starting by Bucket
I've recently had problems starting my camper. It always started with half a turn of the engine after the glow plug light went out, but now talking 10 turns of engine. Even if its been on a run and I stop it for only a minute, it takes a couple of turns of engine to start again. It runs and drives perfectly once running. I did discover I had put about half a litre too much oil in about 200 miles...

Newsgroup Window Sticker. by GrahamW
I think it was originally designed by Richard Cole but I can't find it on his website. However, I've found this copy, in both monochrome and colour, for anyone who wants to print it off. I will be replacing my Guinness label in my tax disc holder with a nice coloured image immediately. Regards, Graham.

Touring Scotland by DavidP
This year it seems I will have to succumb to my wife's desire to do a tour of Scotland. I've resisted successfully in the past as I am a magnet for midges and mossies but now I'm told I should just use DEET. So, the questions a Are there any particular sights worth seeing be it loch, sea or mountain? Not greatly bothered about towns/cities though probably will need to visit some just to...

BP Gaslight refill sources around the UK? by Harry Bloomfield[_2_]
Please don't tell me that MacGas / Flogas has a 'bottle finder' on their website, I am fully aware of that and it really is much worse than useless. It simply lists the Flogas outlets, the vaste majority of which do not stock the BP Gaslight bottles, in fact many have never heard of it. Ringing Flogas themselves, is a similar waste of time. I am also aware that Homebase stock them, but I'm...

aerial tidy by Who, me?
Having been 'encouraged' to purchase a 25m aerial lead due to a poor signal from the caravan aerial I'm looking for options to store it tidily. I use a 'H' frame tidy for the mains cable and thought to use something similar for the aerial cable lead is it likely to damage the aerial lead? I can't think why it should be wanted to check before I spent my fiver. Next question... can I use a...
