    Thanks for allowing me to join

    I own a go Pod "The Podfather" and whilst being admin on the Go PodPals Group, I was pointed in the direction of your site and see it as an excellent forum for go podders. I have owned my Pod for 17 months now and have averaged a trip per month. I am a sole podder and will be known by some members and hope to get to know others. Dave nBuzz Stringer first posted a rally in York with 22 go pods going. It is now in excess of 32 plus two motorhomes and, to avoid confusion, it is a POWWOW.....an event created by Go Podpal group for go pod owners who chat throughout the year to get together at the end of the season for a get together. I am from north of Glasgow and go podding has allowed me to be good friends with other podders the length and breadth of the UK, Ireland and even Sicily. I am delighted to see your knew page and feel that anything that promotes the use of such a wonderful caravan, just has to be great and I look forward to the day when caravan sites have more than just a chance meeting of go pods.

        I think we are being taken over! I didn't realise there was so many.
        Welcome Lawrence and all the PodCasters. (Now at last I know what a Podcast is. It's a gathering of podsters.)

          Hi Laurence,
          Welcome to the forum.

          Tony, Barney & Podite (so named in case the Pod does not meet expectations and I need to do a letter shuffle).

                Dave- if ALL your lights (presumably in your Pod) aren't working the most likely cause is a break in the wire somewhere between your towball socket and the pod main electrical box, if it has one. You need to get a meter and start at the tow bar socket and check there are 12v there. Also how old is your pod? After some years the wiring in the tow ball plug (and car socket) tend to corrode with water ingress so it might need cutting back and rewiring. I always dismantle mine when I get a new one and grease everything within sight, including my trousers and the driveway.

                PS if you have a new computerised car, it could be that the computer which controls the lights has thrown a hissy fit. They are incapable of ignoring the fact that you might tow something, so they need to be reprogrammed or by-passed to allow you to tow.

                  Hi to Laurence and welcome to the SMH&friends forums!

                  I hope you manage to find the reason for your lack of towing lights on the pod, Dave.

                    Presumably you have checked the lighting fuse in the pod? If it has blown, make sure you find the cause before just blindly shoving in more fuses which will also blow.

                      It tuned out to be water in the socket on the tow car pin 4 . at least I know what pin is for what now . after I got my very old but trusty Avo out
