      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Kerbweight

    Taken me a while..but..solved. Took the car to a public weighbridge..with me onboard [75kg] and 1/2 tank diesel..and the luggage cover in place my vehicle weighrd in at spot on 1800kg. Hope this helps some other Caravanner.
  2. Kerbweight

    I know this may be a little silly compared to many of the Technical questions members ask. But it matters to people like me who tow Caravans. My S Max 2.0 gives me [all from the cars V5] a max permissible weight of 2505..thats easy.. It also tells me that the max braked towable weight is [braked]1750.thats clear.. It then goes on to say Mass in Service? is 1825Kg.. Is this the kerbweight of my vehicle?. I ask because the reccomended towing capacity of any vehicle is 85% of its kerbweight,and I am sure any Insurer will look at this if God forbid i have the proverbial accident? Must find a Public weigh Bridge..
