Wondering if anyone can help me ! by Callum
Hi all, I have a couple of things I need answered if possible. 1. I have a Ford Focus 2012 1.6 Diesel Zetec S (What would be the most I could tow) 2. My driveway is not the biggest, from house to pathway is 22feet so I would need to know the best to go for with that in mind. But I can fit my car along side a caravan when I get one so I will have the full 22ft to use.

Foam filled jockey wheels? by Harry Bloomfield[_2_]
I am being driven nuts by pnuematic jockey wheels going flat and wonder if anyone has tried the foam filled type as an alternative? The one I am looking at, has a similar sized tyre to my pnuematic one, but has a plastic centre/ hub with roller bearings. Are the plastic ones strong enough?

M6 Toll - charges for disabled drivers by Al Stevenson
Further to an earlier thread I have been on to the toll company who said:: "I can confirm that you are able to tow a caravan with your car and use your mobility exemption pass providing all of the details are correct i.e., you are using the correct car and the person to whom the mobility exemption pass relates to is in the vehicle." So disabled drivers, once registered for the M6 toll, will...

Hi, We just had our first outing in our 2004 lunar quasar (our first caravan) that we recently bought. Got on site to discover that the water pump didn't work. I initially switched the pump electrics on before connecting the pump and the pump running light illuminated even though it wasn't attached. I then switched it off and connected the submersed pump switched it back on, opened the kitchen...

Warranty - who is meant to protect by [email protected]
I want to raise the issue of warranty because as far as I can see it appears a very tortuous and biased system. Tortuous because everything has to go back to the manufacturer and sometimes takes weeks to resolve and biased because they have the last say on whether an item is covered under warranty or not. I have a Coachman Vision and in March when I came to change the battery out, to keep the...

Advice on Avondale Caravan Door Seal by Sam
Has anyone had found a supplier of the door seal on the 2007 Avondale 380/2 Dart caravan? The door is unusual as the inside edge has a curve which pushes into the seal as the door closes. This is unlike most doors that have a flat surface that pushes onto the seal. I've found that the Lunar Zenith 5 GTS caravan of the same year has an identical door.

Question
Banner charger instructions needed by Peter Clarke
I've just bought a Land Rover and in the back was a battery charger, a Banner Accugard-Car 1800. Does anyone have instructions for this which they can scan and put on the forum? I think it is the type of charger which you can leave on all the time, ie, over the winter period, but I would like confirmation. Thanks.
