    Vanessas lost her top. It appears our cowl has gone missing. I would like to buy another one but don't know the diameter that it fits onto .
    Does anyone know if its a 105mm, 155mm diameter or something else.
    Its a 2010 Apache 700 se
    Thanks

    Ladders you must be joking. Mind you I should really go get them and put a poly bag over it as its supposed to rain. Don't want to create damp.

    But do you know the cowl size now? I know, it's about that big (as she holds her hands apart to indicate size required). No laughing Andy.

    If I had to guess I would say 105mm even that sounds on the large side, I would actually have 'guessed' at 75mm and been completely wrong (again) :D

    No comment.

    I'd have brought you a bottle of wine for the weekend to help commiserate if we'd been able to make the weekend Sandra.

    THINK this might be what your looking for?
    http://www.thecaravanshop.co.uk/pop...uma-exhaust-cowl-flue-screw-top/prod_873.html - 0141 339 5888
    Pity you hadn't noticed on \ before Sunday as the shop is 5 minutes away from the scene of your disaster!
    Not sure on your dimensions unless these are the diameter of the top plate of the cowl. I thought the Truma "S" fire flue (assuming it's a fire not a Combi?) was a standard at around 2 1/2" diameter (from memory of our caravan days) of the screw-in thread.
    The owners name is Neil and he's a good guy. Might be worth a call?

    Remember. PUT MONEY IN THE PARKING METER! Traffic wardens are rife around there at some times of the day. From memory 10p for 30 minutes.
    Alternatively, there is sometimes some spaces in the side streets in amongst the sandstone tenements, if you can find one, for free. There are sometimes some skips about as the flats are regularly renovated \ redecorated.
    Not that I'm suggesting anything, of course!:imoutahere:

    Hey you know how us scots get the name of being tight but 10p aint gonna burst the bank. Not worth going looking at side streets in this Pi**ing rain.
