Without the lock nuts the feet tend to not support the frame pitching on the ball bearing runners. These are rather flimsy and we are looking to replace them with something more substantial.

For those who haven't seen other posts on the subject, if you put weight on the feet the internal nut pushed through the plastic and the foot drops off.  The addition of the nut prevents this happening.

Something that should have been in the original build . Plan on putting a shelf in the wardrobe next as it will make the space more usable.

Yes - did exactly the same to ours two years ago, and have had no problems since.

I also put a thick washer under the nut to spread the load against the plastic insert. It isn't the strongest of fittings, but the load spreading may well have prevented a failure.

Happily the van past its MOT and had a service so we spent  a couple of hours washing her down. Lots of that red dust on the roof. Drained the water out , surprised on how much was in the toilet flush tank as we had never needed to put any in there.

I think that it is good practice to use the flush each time the toilet is used. If the flush tank is still fairly full after several months' use of your van there must be fertile vegetation on the sites you have visited allthumbz allthumbz hugegrins

Our old van never had a flush system, never caused a problem, it just dilutes the contents of the cassette.

I cant remember the age of your Duetto, but my 1999 one had a flush.

Last time out in the van we had a bit of a problem with the LPG coincidentally just after filling it up. I had https://markcaravanmedic.co.uk/contact-me/ a local caravan mechanic have a look. He changed the regulator and fitted the stainless steel gas hose to replace the cracking rubber one.  With checking the correct output pressure it took just under an hour. Will post some pictures over the weekend.

The failed gas regulator the yellow valve does not close but only restricts flow while using the capped off pipe to measure output gas pressure.



The old gas pipe that had cracks on the surface, as others have done we replaced this with a longer stainless braided one.
