Beechwood Grange

Returned yesterday from York Beechwood Grange CC site after a four night stay,first of the season.

We have stayed here a few times before so I won't go into the site in detail,suffice to say it is worth a visit.

The Cadiz just about behaved itself,one or two minor issues.

First off,the Fiamma Pack Waste went down like a lead zeppelin with SWMBO,she thought it was too big and obstructive so off it has to come and the original returned to its rightful place,so if anyone wants a used Pack Waste I am your man.

Secondly I eventually got round to concluding that the front bench seat cushions had collapsed internally.

I had been thinking this for a while but kept thinking it must be "me" and putting it off but it was like sitting on the slats,well not quite but heading that way.

I should have sorted it out before the winter lay off but foolishly didn't,anyway they are now in the hands of YC Leisure for a warranty repair or replacement.

Thirdly,and strangely,I noticed that the control panel just inside the door was showing the figure "8" on the digital display at the top,second digit in from the left.

It momentarily showed "U" and "3" but was mostly at "8".

Anyway I tried switching it off and on to no avail,then tried disconnecting the battery twice once again to no avail.

I did think it may be some sort of fault code but everything was working fine as far as I can tell.

I have e-mailed the dealers and someone is supposed to be ringing me back to tell me how to get rid of it,I will report back as to what the remedy is,I hope it isn't a replacement panel.

Everything else was fine,the Alde heating is wonderful,silent and warm,even SWMBO asked for it to be turned down,unheard of.

The new Avtex 21 1/2" TV that I bought over the winter worked excellently and folded back into the cubby hole with no problems at all.



  1. Just for info My 12v panel has identical figures appearing.When I had it serviced 3 weeks ago I brought it up. The fitter assured me it wasnt a fault code, and that the panel is a generic one used on other caravan and motorhomes, and all it is used for on the Unicorn is as a volt meter.I will be interested to see what your dealer makes of it.

  2. That's interesting Bill.
    Needless to say I haven't received a phone call,need to chase it up.
