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.

Re: Running time on compressor fridge

Have managed to get the LB up to 14+ volts with a proper charge from a battery charger. It's settled now at about 12.7 but that's without running anything. I tried to charge it using the 240v EHU but it wouldn't get past 12.2v and the Zig unit got very hot, as in couldn't hold your finger on the fro...

Re: Running time on compressor fridge

Fridge was empty during test run, hadn’t really thought about this affecting it. Have run it on it’s lowest temp setting and voltage on leisure battery dropped from 12.2 to 11.8 in about 30 mins (empty again) before staying stable. Fridge seems happy pulling on 11.8. Certainly not getting days out o...

Running time on compressor fridge

Hi all. Got myself a Dometic CRX50 a while back and I'm trying to get to grips with it's run time. It's wired directly to the new leisure battery (smaller one under passenger seat) and unless on EHU to keeo topping up leisure has no other power source - will be fitting solar at a later date. I've re...

Cheers. Primed the tow bar and used hammerite from a rattle can but has just chipped off. Didn't key the primer which I think may have been a schoolboy error!

Re: Varnish/stain birch ply

    So this was for the bed section and I made sure it was all rectangular cuts so that the frame could be glued and pinned. I was using a sliding rail saw that I borrowed from a friend  :D  you can use a hand saw but they are generally long cuts and lead to cutting errors they are 25 pounds a day ...

Re: Can't resolve pedal pulsing

Thanks for replies all. Have checked wheels and tyres and all okay. A whole refurb does seem drastic but might be the solution if the mechanic can't sort it on his next go. It was fine before the change of shoes and fiddling with the handbrake which makes me think it's a set up problem rather than p...

Can't resolve pedal pulsing

A common problem I know, and I've read through previous threads. Had the initial problem after having the rear brake shoes changed and the handbrake tightened. Took it back to the garage but whatever they did failed to sort the problem and decided to try another garage that I use for my car. The guy...

Re: T3 wind deflectors

Ordered some dubflecta ones in November. Still not received yet. Took my money, ignored my emails until I registered a complaint with PayPal. Then lied through his teeth saying he'd replied to them. W$nker. I'm having exactly the same issue now! They took my cash over a month ago via Paypal, have n...
