Going to Venice by Another Dave
I'm thinking of taking the caravan to Venice. The shortest route is via Switzerland. I seem to remember that the Swiss are unwelcoming to foreign cars let alone caravans and that there are charges. Any advice? Another Dave

Weird Calor gas exchange rules by Tim+
Has anyone else come across this? http://www.calor.co.uk/customer-services/faqs/general-cylinder-queries/cylinder-exchange-policy/ On what planet does any of this make sense? Despite the rules, I've never had any trouble swapping cylinders between groups but the logic of the rules eludes me. Tim

Does anyone know if there is a Mr Shifta for sale, they seem to be snapped up very quickly. I'm prepared to travel any distance. The last one I enquired about was in Scotland and it had been sold.

Shocking how few have a Carbon Monoxide/smoke Alarm. Do you? by Pendrag0n
How many people have to die before we see sense! http://tinyurl.com/agzlapn I am shocked to think that any residence would be without a smoke and carbon monoxide detector these days. A paltry 20 for peace of mind http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/7001617.htm So much for intelligence! I wonder how many of us actually do have them or not here?

Al-ko spare wheel holder by Chris J Dixon
Having dutifully renewed all three caravan tyres on grounds of age (It was a shame to see so much unused rubber, but it just isn't worth the risk) I had to get the spare wheel holder back in place. I am about as far from a muscle man as could be, and I ended up having to use my trolley jack to lift it high enough to secure properly. Is there a particular knack to this task, or do I just have to

Is there a reason for the Mr Shifta caravan mover not being available anymore. If anyone knows of an owner who wants to part with one I would like to buy one. Thanks.

Using a full service pitch by Appelation Controlee
In a week's time we'll be staying for a week on a site where the only availability for our size of caravan is a full service pitch. I haven't used one of these pitches before, although I've observed (at a distance) how one or two others have set themselves up. Is there an off-the-peg kit available? Alternatively what do I need to assemble kit-wise to be able to deal with most eventualities when...

Best small 4x4 towcar by Peter Clarke
Can members advise the smallest, most economical 4x4 towcar to pull a 1106kg caravan? It has to be reasonably small as the wife doesn't like to drive big cars, economical for obvious fuel-related reasons and 4x4 so we can get out of our village in the snow. Oh, and it has to be at least five years old so I can afford it! I have a Nissan X Trail at the moment.

Al-Ko AKS 3004 by Harry Bloomfield[_2_]
Another question.... On the front of the above couple is a red button which shows green to indicate it is properly coupled up - ignore that. On the black handle close to where it hinges is what I believe should be a red square of plastic, except mine is missing. Under it is a green bit of plastic upon which I assume the red part fixes. What is the purpose of the red square button please and...

Patching alloy panel by Harry Bloomfield[_2_]
I have a repair I need to make to an alloy side panel. Because of its multi ribbed contour, filling is not an option. My idea is to apply a matching section of ribbed panel, basically cut to shape and stuck over the top. I now have a a matching section of panel, I just need to work out how to apply it over the damage. Whatever adhesive I use needs to be quite thin, to prevent the panel...

The advert does not say what it records onto. Personal would not be recording in a caravan anyway. Are these sort of TV's available in normal TV dealers, High Street or On-line branded differently and...

A better charger? is it a SMART one? by David Park
http://www.lidl.co.uk/cps/rde/xchg/lidl_uk/hs.xsl/index_38025.htm I know that normal chargers and chargers in caravans only charge 13.8V so we only get a leisure battery part full. Will this give the extra volt to get a better charge in,? Regards David

Static Caravan Help by John Taylor
I currently have a static caravam that is sited in Scarborough, the caravan is 15 years old but in pretty much mint condition. Scarborough is a little too far away for me now (I live in Northampton) so cannot decide whether to pay for the caravan to be removed and disposed of (at a cost) or to move the caravan to a site closer (Derbyshire for example). Could anyone advise what the typical cost...
