Re: Viking Roof Latch - need longer thread

I would check that your roof is fitted correctly and that the hinges are all okay. I have a super Viking and when I bought it it only had one working latch - the other was missing and a cable tie had been used. Didn’t have an issue with closing the roof and using the latch though. I now have protex ...

Recommendations for new bed

Hi all. Interested in any recommendations anyone has for a new rock and roll bed. Re-doing the interior of mine and changing out the current on for something newer. Remember reading about this on here a while back but can't find the thread now. Remember m1camperbeds being mentioned and have had a lo...

Re: Steering column gaitor/boot

Thanks Tony, good point. All looks okay, there’s some pics below for anyone who might know better than me what I’m looking for. https://i.imgur.com/kUjZfsM.jpg https://i.imgur.com/FYJa2hL.jpg I noticed on the one I purchased it has 4 holes to attach it. There’s no lugs to push it into, is yours atta...

Steering column gaitor/boot

Should there be one of these? I’ve got a lot of air coming into the footwell when travelling 40mph+ and it seems to be coming in at the point the steering column exits the footwell. Have taped round it with gaffer tape and it’s made a difference. Just wondering if it’s missing a gaitor there - maybe...

Re: Benefits of a front spoiler

Some really useful info in this thread. Cheers all. Looking at fitting one myself and thinking the most straightforward way is to purchase the Brickwerks one. Am I right in thinking it’ll fit all vans? Mine’s a converted panel van that goes a wandering at higher speeds. Changed the steering rack bus...

Help identify part

Hi. Was under the van today and noticed badly perished hoses running from front to back. Think they are coolant but appreciate confirmation from anyone who can help. https://i.imgur.com/ajpThJr.jpg Would also be interested in identifying the part below. It’s held on with cable ties rather than mount...

Re: Advice on headlining

Yes, you need to fit the headlining before the screen goes back in. Bugger! Thought as much. JK do the perforated vinyl but it's £200+  :shock:  Think it may be for whole roof though. Can get the cab piece for £65 on Ebay and the back piece can be bought by the roll from a separate seller for not t...

Re: T4 seats t25 van

I have early t4 seats in mine on swivel bases - so much more comfortable than the originals! A slight mod was done by the previous owner but just involves cutting off a small price to allow them to run smoothly, no additional welding etc needed.

Re: Varnish/stain birch ply

Cheers for this. Current units coming out this week after which I’m kind of committed to giving it a go! Really useful to hear how you got on. Will let you know how it goes once I get fully stuck in!

Advice on headlining

Hi all. I started stripping out my camper today ready for her respray and started removing the headlining. It’s the original stuff, white and perforated. Any ideas of the best place to get replacement material or suggestions as to what to use - the original has discoloured somewhat where the glue ha...

Re: Running time on compressor fridge

That is a pointless low voltage cutout! The battery is dead by that point, I would set it at 12v then you can reasonably keep the battery in good order. I’d agree and would explain why the leisure battery needed a bloody good charge to get going again. Will have to wait and see how permanent the da...

Re: Can't resolve pedal pulsing

So having priced stuff up and the big differences are with the drums, back plates and cylinders. I'd appreciate any advice anyone has on whether to go genuine or not with some/all of these. What am I paying extra for? Is it longevity, performance or name?! Noticed the genuine back plates are thicker...

Cheers Rob, me too. Will post on here when I get confirmation either way from Dometic.
