    Just purchased our very first camper van "Talbot Harmony A/S" H reg and we've had a couple of short journeys to get used to it. The petrol gauge has a life of it's own and can sit on empty for a couple of miles when it is 1/2 full. We have a 6mth warranty and have had it looked at but they say it is the age of the vehicle - is this right? Also I've had the windscreen re-sealed as it leaked. Can someone tell me if I should just accept these little oddities because of it's age? I don't what to be a fastidious whinger - I just want to relax and enjoy!:Blush:

    Hi dont know exactly what the laws are but im sure someone will come and help but what i would do is have a good read at the warranty leaflet you should have got or give them a call and tell them you want these thing fix. No matter what age it is it should be fit for purpose.

    We have a 1990 motorhome and our fuel gauge works fine. Im not a technical person at all, but I think they are fobbing you off.

    Do you have free rac or aa cover? or free legal advice? if so give them a ring and ask them.

    Also have a word with your local trading standards if you bought it from a dealer and they will be able to tell you your rights and possibly help you.

    It may be worth getting the AA or RAC to carry out an inspection just in case there are other things that you need to be aware of.

    Good luck and hope nothing serious crops up xxxxxxxxxxx

    If they have warranted it they should fix it (so what's age got to do with it?)

    If they intended not to put things right they should have sold it "as seen" with a warranty you paid more I bet.
