Fixing Caravan Door Latch, Friction Pads & Reflective Light + Cleaning Exterior

A busy time with all the caravan odd jobs to finish before winter really starts. There are so many broken parts on the caravan I decided to try and start shrinking the 'to do' list. I have managed to replace the broken door latch, replace my very old ALKO friction pads, replace my lost caravan reflective light and give the caravan a good clean.

Bought An Awning & Sorting Caravan Accessories Stored In My Car

I'd planned to get an awning before winter and finally spotted one for sale on Trademe. The owner had used it once and realised it was the wrong size for his caravan.
