    Hello, wondering if anyone can help, I was driving along and heard a pop. Engine now won’t turn over and I was towed away. Can’t see oil just water and coolant. Pouring out. No hoses are dislodged, all I have is a video which I will try and attach.

    Travelled 4 hours a few days ago to pick up the van. Got me halfway home and got a flashing coolant light and realised the coolant was leaking out from somewhere.

    My Waeco CR50 fridge appears to have packed in, I have no flashing fault LEDs, I checked the fuse and it fine, I also checked the continuity across the interior bulb and go no continuity. Any ideas. Its only 2.5 years old, so just outside the 2 year warranty I think.

    Very excited to have my new van , but almost immediately I've norsed it up. I've managed to push my bench seat forwards such that it is jammed up against the table. I did this by moving it fully forward when the bench was folded down, then lifting the seat up which locked in place. If you do...
