Update: We collected the van from Bristol Caravans on Wednesday afternoon and returned home with it by 16:30. The rest of the afternoon and evening was taken up with preparation for our Malvern trip – filling water tank, washing the van and putting all our gear back inside.
We made it to Malvern on schedule and the fridge worked better than ever before. Even the heating seemed to be more efficient – possibly because the regulator was changed and the gas pressure was better??? Who knows….. The upshot is that we have a fully functioning van again and were able to enjoy our long weekend away at Malvern.
