    • Username and other important upgrade information   09/23/2015

      Please note that the forum is still upgrading will be for most of the night I think,therefore you may find it slow at times, looking different etc etc. This will straighten out (he hopes) as the upgrade continues. One of the big changes is that usernames and display names will change.   At the moment you can have a username and display name for example you can have a username of joeblogsy and a display name of Joe Blogs.   After the upgrade we will only have usernames.   For some this won't make any difference at all but there are a fair few of you that have different display names., many of which I have changed for people for various reasons.   If, after the upgrade you notice your forum name isn't right please just send me a PM with your desired username.   You may also find you have been logged out, if this happens and you cannot remember your original forum details, please email me at mark@touringandtenting or open a support ticket by

  1. Post on A frame problems in Workshop

    By Jgb, posted
    I recently was alarmed to find a bolt that secures the over run  brake pushrod cylinder to the A frame bracket had sheared, resulting in an alarming amount of vertical movement on the coupling. The movement also caused the bracket on the front of the A frame to break.
    The caravan is a Knaus Starclass560 2008 with an Alko chassis. Having replaced both pushrod cylinder bolts and the bracket I note I have a small amount of vertical movement on the pushrod. Is a small amount of vertical movement permissible or do I need to replace the cylinder bushes.
