    Handbrake

    If there was a reasonable way of extending the parking brake release handle I would have done it by now. Unfortunately the brake is applied with a foot pedal; that's fine but the release toggle is both out of sight, and out of reach without the driver leaning forward and feeling for the thing. Earlier models had a yellow release toggle on the dashboard in full view and reach of the driver. Progress isn't always in the right direction methinks . . . If I had a Ducato or similar I would certainly pay for an extension handle if I found the standard brake leaver hard to reach. Gordon.

    Handbrake

    I think in cases like yours Gordon this extension is worthy of consideration, I only thought of it as it would help Jayne reach the handbrake lever a little easier but it's not located in such a way that she struggles to operate it. At £80 it's not really a bargain.

    Handbrake

    Could do with something similar for our RV. The parking brake is easy enough to apply (being foot operated) BUT the release toggle is hidden so far under the dashboard as to basically be inaccessible without a major stretch from the driving seat, and a fumble around in the dark. Ergonomics? What ergonomics? I've owned RVs with this "feature" for the past ten years and still feel it is a poor design. The extension handles for the Fiat/Peugeot handbrakes is however a good solution to a problem that would not be there had the handbrake handle been correctly designed in the first place. I believe there are a number of handbrake extension designs available but be aware as some will prevent the cab seat from rotating in layouts that allow this. Gordon

    Handbrake

    A company on Amazon called rare-spares also on flebay both same price £79.95. Well worth it I think so OH can reach the lever. Very easy to fit just 6 6MM screws to tighten up, they even supply a Allen key.

    Handbrake

    Been thinking about one of those myself, mostly for my better half as she does all the driving abroad while I navigate and pay the toll's. Where did you get it from and how much?
  17. Where did you purchase it from sounds interesting and I find I can't reach if the seat belt is on myself ?

    Handbrake

    I have just fitted a handbrake extension to my Autotrail on a fiat chassis.This lifts the handle up about 6" and makes such a difference I can reach it without stretch. It took all of 5 mins to fit
  19. Our fresh water tank is inside the MH (under a bed) so has no additional insulation, however both the grey and black waste tanks are under-slung and have heated pads in addition to an external insulated layer. I wonder if you would consider heated pads such as these for your fresh water tank. They are low wattage as they're only intended to keep the water from freezing. Basically though, any insulation layer that does not act like a sponge should suffice to minimise the risk of the contents freezing, and of course a full tank will contain more "heat" than an almost empty one, so minimising the probability of freezing. Gordon.
  20. hi ,,will do ,,anyone recommend how to insulate the water tank i was looking at using it over winter if possible ? just the fresh water as i can use the waste hog if its cold ?
  21. Hi Rob, let us know how you get on with it, nothing like personal recommendation
  22. just bought one tried it on a similar motorhome and it looks and fits perfect only time will tell if any good i bought it from todds motorhomes,, they seem pretty good ,dont think they would be selling if the were rubbish
  23. hi i need a cover for the windscreen i think ? a local motor home place is selling these THERMAL WINDSCREEN NRF MOTORHOME for £80 specific to fiat ducato anyone used them are they any good ,,thanks rob
  24. Hi Clive Welcome to the Forum. Is there a reset button on the actual boiler? As its an Autograph I imagine you have the Alde heating system. On my Alliance we have the Truma. I was going to suggest it might be the anti shock button on the gas regulator but if you are getting gas to the hob it would rule that out. Sorry I can't be of more help. There is a Bailey Motorhome Owners Facebook Group which might be worth consulting as there is quite a lot of knowledge there. David
  25. Raymond Welcome to the Forum. Campsites usually have very strict rules on the disposal of waste water on site and specify that it can only be disposed at the provided waste water points. You mention washing up water which will contain remnants of food waste which will quickly become unpleasant if everyone were to do the same. We have to empty our tank every couple of days because we always use our own shower facilities. David
  26. Whats the problem, the latest Bailey motorhomes have 90 litre waste tank with ours 762 find it takes nearly 2 weeks to fill and we never or very rarely do dishes at a site wash point. Lets face it its only grey water as in dish water so it does no harm to the ground if you run it off slowly overnight if tank full. How often do motorhomers stay on site more than 2 weeks very few id say.

  28. Hi Rob, if you click on Browse Forums and go down to Motorhome Holidays you will see a dozen reviews I did on Spanish Campsites plus an overview of the whole trip. You may find some inspiration hopefully. Did the trip in 2018. Can always contact me if you want more in depth.
