What an usual first post.

No hello, but straight into a personal view and criticism of a company and the electrics of a van you chose to buy.

Let's hope that on your next post you remember to turn off the Caps Lock. ☹️

Those Bailey fridges. The thing is there's no service network for Bailey fridges, no parts dealers and no information to be found on them anywhere. That's Bailey fridges for you.

Surely the fridge that Bailey use will just be one of the usual brands, Dometic, or whatever.

I don't understand why this light can't be replaced. Is it an LED built in to a PCB or something? There must be some way of rigging something up.

Trouble is, while we older blokes are generally practical and can DIY repairs and modifications, later generations don't seem to have been taught how to do such stuff and have to rely on professionals. Who leave much to be desired as we've all discovered!

Mind you, MH designers and builders clearly don't ever travel in their products, judging by the poor design and ergonomics of many modern vehicles.
