I’ve not had the best week when it comes to vehicles.
First off, we were pulled by the fuzz while going along the Birkenhead docks because of a broken bulb on the caravan. Easy fix as I carry spare bulbs and was able to swap out the bulb by the side of the road. They ran my license and plates while I was doing this and discovered my MOT was three days out of date. £100 fine. Not fun.
My Dad towed us to the site in Frodsham (only about 30 miles away), and we had a great time. He also towed us back.
Using the remote control to back the caravan into it’s home, the wheel buckled. A subsequent visit by a caravan engineer revealed that the drum brakes had worn out, generating excessive heat, and cause the axle to snap.
It’s an expensive fix.
