Sadly I have gone to the Dark Side (24 May 2017)

After years of running this site, I have now gone to The Dark Side. This web site will continue, but I really need someone new to take over.

× A non technical area for the Dandy admirer, to chat and discuss....

Thanks EM, thats as I thought and have been chatting to jgcr via email and he says the same:

With regard to the 12 volt supply I use a leisure battery in a battery box in the gas locker and use a grey socket and clamps to supply when not on hook up.
The standard catches to the galley are the only ones that seem to be made of cheese with time the spring break es through.
I have upgraded them and had no problem since.
Take care with the base of the base strip of the upper door as the pram hoop moves from side to side and cracks it, I use an off cut of waste hose to pack the space to stop the movement while in transit.
Good luck this should be the last Dandy you buy as it should last you a lifetime.

Re Socket Ian at Riva can show you one or sell if you do not consider the price too high at approx' £21.
Have a look on the parts section at Riva it shows a picture of one, I am sure you could make one for around £10.
Again the catches should be available from most good DIY stores picture again available on Riva.

Hope to pick up the new Dandy sometime next week, so emptied our existing one this afternoon.
My golly it filled the people carrier we have, and you forget just how much the Dandy Destiny High Side holds!
Also a good chance to get rid of stuff no longer needed and broke etc.

Should have it up for sale in just over a week

All went well, a long day though.
Its in very good condition.
A front locker catch needs replacing, and a few other things , nothing major.
May use it next weekend and do another camping trip
