Midnight Misbehaving Mudflaps
Has anyone else with a current model Autotrail experienced this problem or is it just us?
We were in the Derbyshire Dales this weekend for a few days, nice and snug in the van despite the rain and blustery wind.
At around midnight my wife wakes me up to tell me she cant sleep with all the knocking noises - sure enough there was a pronounced TAP TAP TAP coming from somewhere.
Well being the shivalrous sort I got out of bed to fetch my wife the torch and despatched her outside to investigate (seemed only fair as I was having no trouble sleeping through it lol)
It turned out to be the mudflaps, these are rigid in design but seem to be hinged at the top, thus allowing them to get blown around in high winds and slap against the rear bodywork and tyre!
The problem was solved by rolling up a dirty towel and jamming it inbetween the tyre and the mudflap - next item on the MUST BUY list will be a couple of large cheap sponges for insertion next time we are in windy conditions!
