Hi hellopablo, did you manage to get to the bottom of this? I ask as I have a near identical problem. I have just go back from a trip into and around the Limousin, France.

Re: France - Breakdown Cover

I have a place in France and over the years found breakdown cover a real pain. You really need to read the small print. Normally the breakdown assistance is not an issue, its the repatriation which,as we found out last year when the wife's 6 year old Renault threw a pistoncan leave you in a lot of b...

Re: Servicing in the Region - list on page 1

Hi, sorry for delay in getting back. Manic life, bla bla bla... Anyhow I have found a garage in Lowestoft, Pakefield Motors who reckon they have serviced Bongo's in the past and even done head changes. They estimate a full service to come to about £280 including parts and VAT. This is about the same...

Re: Servicing in the Region - list on page 1

Any Lowestoft or Great Yarmouth Bongo owners here? I'm looking for a Bingo friendly garage close to home to do my servicing. Have used Andy's Imports over the other side of Norwich before and they are very good but it's a heck of a long way and I'd have to leave the old girl there all week, so I'm l...

Re: Tap problems - please help!

Silly question I know but do you have a plastic water tank with a screw top where the inlet hose goes? it's not screwed up tight is it? This will certainly make the water come out slow. It needs to vent I think. :|

Re: Just got back...

Thanks for the link Mike. I only live about half an hour away but was completely unaware that this was on. All the focus here is on Latitude which is well beyond our budget and a bit too commercial. I might just head over Saturday evening and check it out :)

Re: Riversway Leisure RV M series awning

I managed to source a 2.4 metre length from Norwich Camping & Leisure at a good price. Top place and was assisted by a fellow Bongolier who stuck it on my gutter and had a good old yarn bout Bongos. It's been on there for a week or so now and I don't think it's going to come off...ever :)

Riversway Leisure RV M series awning

When I bought Brigitte last year the cowboy I purchased it from threw in an unused RV M Series awning. I've had a couple of overnighters in her but today I thought; what with the weather being nice, that I would erect it in the garden. All went fairly well till I tried to figure out how to "connect"...
