I decided to fix the Jockey Wheel for good, take some of the Vans movement out.



The Panel is giving inaccurate and unreliable info on the battery charge state etc.
Sadly, to still have the water level, the unit must still be connected to the buzz bar.

So I got the unit on the left from AutoElecAU, it is made in the UK for the Marine Industry, and CTEK have put their name on it, so I am hopeful of it being a good unit. The old unit was giving random results, with a constant load it would flip from charging to discharging, can't be relied on now.



Insurance has approved the roof repairs. Just waiting on the parts and it will be done.

Can you post a pic of your scissor hinge for your roof?
I will do so when it is done, first up will be the repairs needed with the help of insurance thanks to the 2 van repairers, the vinyl sock and other bits are going to be sorted out. I want them to ensure the roof closes correctly as it did before.
When that is done, I'll fit the scissors across the front and rear to cope with the awning side load. Can't fit the scissors under insurance repairs as it is not a repair.
For now, waiting on the van repairer to get the parts.
