Re: Drive away awning

I also use a Khyam Motordome Sleeper - the only minor gripes are - its flipping heavy! - I had to split it into two bags as I couldn't get it above my head to put it on the roof rack! It doesn't fold up very small - due to all the poles still being in the awning. But it is very well made and had no ...

Re: Ssvc lineup at camperjam

I think you can turn up for the Show n Shine - but some categories were getting quite popular, so David Eccles who runs the SnS asked if people could prebook to make it a bit easier on the day. I just turned up last year I think.

Re: Barn doors opening... ...whilst driving!

I've had similar - the doors don't open, but the handle slowly drops over a long journey, then the doors start to squeak like mad until it drives me crazy enough to stop and relatch the door fully. I can stop it by locking the side doors with the key, as this locks the handle (my van is later, a 67)...

Re: leaking gearbox

It’s probably the axle tube gaiters. Notorious leak spot, especially if they are the split type with a row of small bolts along a seam. Mine ...... out took multiple attempts to stop it, but have finally cured it now.

Re: Rear airbags PSV/MOT FAIL help needed

Even though its bagged it still needs dampers though - so I'd agree with the tester tbh.
Do air bags have internal damping? never heard of that before...
