Re: Overheating - Looking for troubleshooting steps

The first time your Bongo overheated, all the leaks were fixed. It bled without problems, was running at a very nice temperature and you managed a number of long trips. 😎 As advised at the time, overheating does weaken the aging hoses and associated parts. As another hose has now failed, causing it ...

Re: more overheating

Re: Where do I fit in?

Lovely group of people and very helpful. I guess that comes from the qualification to be slightly eccentric to have got involved with a Bongo in the first place :) :)

Re: Hardstanding & groundsheets

Good tip about avoiding the rain build-up Bob! Many years ago we came back to ours after torrential rain, to find our small dog floating in her plastic bed, on top of the bulging ground sheet. Like a hover-craft! :lol:

Re: Roof doesn't click into place

The roof cables run in metal channels. The cables might benefit from a lubrication with chain lube, like you'd use on a bike. (Don't use something that attracts dust.)
