Thanks again Andy, I really should put all my queries on at the same time but lots of things going through the head and only 3 functioning greycells is not conducive to clarity of thought. scratch head Why can't we defrag our brains in the same way we can defrag our PC's?

Can you confirm whether you have a 'header tank' under the seating for the manual water fill, we have seen one on a 2015 base and wondered what the necessity for it was and if it still part of the fit?
When we meet, and I'm sure we will, I owe both Q and your good self a pint or three! Cheers up!

The alternative is that I have a lead rigbt foot - but that does not square with the use of cruise control for both of us.

Ron, my current PVC on a Peugeot base (130) runs very well on the cruise control, much better than my right foot in fact. My wife has a Renault car which when on cruise, wastes about 15% of the fuel when measured against her (very soft and fluffy) right foot. Our local garage man tells us it's all to do with the initial set up..............as a mechanics-o-phobe I have to believe what he says.

NB it is a 2014 model but I doubt things will have changed much.

Floor area of the locker, measured inside:  1900 cm x 550 cm

External opening locker door: 730 cm x 280 cm

Our previous van was the same layout but the 2 beds were wider ( ie less space between the two benches) and so my Lafuma chair would fit nicely in the underbed space. 

Q

Our chairs fit...............hurrah. Many thanks, as I said in my last post a pint or three is yours when we meet big thumbs up

I'm so pleased. If it wasn't for the fact that the one I have seems to suit my back I'd ask what you have and buy myself a new one !

Hi Bertie sorry missed this but I don't have a header tank under the nearside seat for the manual fill. The filler pipe does however do a 90 degree turn from the wall and through the floor so it does effect storage but it is well forward toward the drivers seat. I suspect you could ask AS to fit the filler as far forward in the under seat storage locker as they can, in hindsight I would have done so. AS also fitted a status aerial with its included signal finder as a no cost option Roger will have the details as he sorted it out. The Status is much better than the Teleco. We had a signal at Abbey Wood yesterday a pitch away from where we had no signal with the teleco only three weeks ago.

Yes - I reckon, from the engine sound, that my CC is good and light with its right foot - PROVIDED that, after disengaging it for any reason, braking or changing gear, you get back to the cruise speed by your own gentle acceleration before using "Resume". Using resume from a slower speed is light dropping a brick on the gas pedal! winks

Speaking of fuel consumption, our 2013 Broadway Fb has been averaging around 28 mpg from new. I say has been, but now, after almost 14000 miles and resetting the computer, we seem to be averaging around 26. 
I have noticed though, that the engine seems a bit looser and revs easier, coupled with the fact I now seem to have increased my cruising speed from 55-60 to 60-65, and apparently, my sat nav tells me that at one point, it registered a speed of 87mph!
Since its visit to A/S last month, nothing has gone wrong or fallen off, and we are in week 3 of a 4 week trip to France.  
And I get a free Hab check next week when we get hone, courtesy of A/S. 
The more we use the van, the more we love it.

Well, I had the free habitation check done at the dealers and AS picked up the tab. No issues found on the check, no damp, nothing else loose or fell off!
Had the van serviced at Peugeot last month. Very expensive!
Now back in France, van is running perfectly. Mpg averaging about 27 this trip, but we were absolutely loaded to the max ( and probably more!) and kept the speed up to ( a sat nav indicated) 100 - 110 kph to the middle of Brittany. Did you know you can get a 22ft fold up ladder and a bike plus loads of tools under the fixed bed?
Since the last trip, we have fitted a third 110ah leisure battery and 110 watts of solar panels. Still love spending time in the van and after a jolly good clean inside outside and underneath, it looks like it just came out of the showroom, again.
But, I notice, still no further news from Sarahspalace!

I think i will make a list and see what they do.  I will stress I want it all done as obviously its still a purchase so I think it comes under normal customer satisfaction, fir for purpose etc 
If they keep messing me around I will make some calls to some other dealers around the country and see how they would deal with it.
otherwise I might park in front of their gates ha ha till i get some satisfaction lol
Have you an update? Did you get the problems sorted?

Hi Allan. Having had our EKTBLP for 2 weeks now we can only say how thrilled we are with it too and I've started a thread about it. I'm very interested that you have fitted a third battery...we had a third fitted in our last van as the fridge was a WAECO 12v condenser. With the 3rd Battery we could stay off grid for up to 4 days without problem and with no driving in the summer months but we only manged 2 days in the winter. I'm interested in your experience with the third as we plan much off grid travel over the next few months and any pointers would be welcome please.
As you say it's interesting that there have been no further developments from the OP!
