Code of conduct
Environment
Care and consideration should be taken to
protect the environment.
Observe the Country and Coastal Codes
shown overleaf.
THE COUNTRY CODE
Enjoy the countryside but respect its life
and work. More people than ever before
are exploring the countryside, interested
in farming, plant life, bird watching or just
observing the general wildlife. Whatever your
interest, there is a lot to learn, but please
observe the following code:
1. G
uard against all risk of fires. Hay and
heathland catch alight easily and once
ablaze are very difficult to put out.
REMEMBER: FIRE SPREADS QUICKLY.
2. Fasten all gates.
3. Keep your dog under proper control.
4. Keep to the paths across farm land.
5.Avoid damaging fences, hedges and walls.
6. Leave no litter.
7. Safeguard water supplies.
8. Protect wildlife, wild plants and trees.
9. Go carefully on country roads.
10. Respect the life of the countryside.
In the event of a motorhome travelling
slowly the driver of the motorhome should,
where possible, pull over in order to let other
traffic pass.
15
t he mot orhome c o d e
The Coastal code
As our coastlines are increasingly used for
recreation and education, the following
suggestions are made to enable us to
enjoy our inheritance and preserve it
for posterity.
Disturbance may mean DEATH.
DO NOT trample about, or move rocks
unnecessarily.
DO NOT frighten seals or seabirds.
DO NOT spill detergents, solvents or fuel from
boats as these can kill marine life.
When sailing, moderate your speed - the wash
from a fast boat can destroy banks and nests.
Live molluscs and crustaceans need not be
collected as souvenirs - dead shells can usually
be found.
Shellfish can take years to grow and fines
can be imposed for not observing national
regulations.
DO NOT pull up seaweeds unnecessarily.
Make your visit instructive - not destructive.
Look at material - don’t remove it. Take notes
and photographs, not specimens.
Observe by-laws and be considerate to others.
National Trust property and Country Parks have
regulations to protect the wildlife. Follow these
and the Country and Coastal Codes.

MOTORHOME TERMS
Mass in Running Order:
This is the mass of the motorhome as stated
by the manufacturer, i.e. ex works weight
including the driver with 90% fuel / tools
and hook up cable and standard fixtures and
fittings, in compliance with European Directive
92/21/EEC (Masses and Dimensions).
18
Note: Quoted MRO is subject to tolerance,
due to weight variation of materials used in
Motorhome construction.
Maximum User Payload:
The maximum allowable weight to be put
into the motorhome whilst it is being driven.
This is made up of 4 sections: Personal effects,
conventional load, optional equipment and
essential habitation equipment.
The Maximum User Payload is the difference
between the Maximum Technically Permissible
Laden Mass and the Mass in Running Order.
Personal Effects:
Those items which a user can choose to
carry in a motorhome and which are not
included as Essential Habitation Equipment or
Optional equipment.
Conventional Load:
A mass allowance for each designated
passenger seat.
Optional Equipment:
Items made available by the manufacturer over
and above the standard specification of the
motorhome.
Essential Habitation:
A mass allowance for liquids in systems not
accounted for within the MRO.
Maximum Technically Permissible
Laden Mass:
The maximum weight for which the
motorhome is designed for normal use when
being driven on a road, laden. This mass takes
into account specific operating conditions
including factors such as the strength of
materials, loading capacity of tyres etc.
WARNING: Under no circumstances
should the Maximum Technically
Permissible Laden Mass of this
motorhome be exceeded.
Nose weight:
The static mass of the trailer towing device on
the rear of the towing vehicle.
Loading of vehicle & Large storage areas
(ii)The trailer is intended to be towed slightly
nose heavy. The nose weight can be
adjusted by distribution of the load. The
nose weight should be approximately 7%
of the actual laden weight (but not greater
than the hitch capacity) and at the same
time suit the motorhome requirements.
See ‘Advice on Towing’ page 22.
LOADING OF VEHICLE
Warning: loads must not be exceeded.
The driver is responsible for arranging
the loads so that they comply with
the technical weight limits of the
specific motorhome model. See
specification handbook.
Correct weight distribution is an important
factor in ensuring your vehicle is well
balanced and easy to drive. It is therefore
necessary to load your motorhome carefully
making sure all heavy articles are evenly
distributed and are preferably placed in the
lower lockers or bed boxes.
WARNING: Do not travel with televisions
or microwaves in overhead lockers unless
the appliance was supplied fitted to your
motorhome by the manufacturer.
Although it is essential to ensure that the total
weight of your motorhome does not exceed
the stipulated Maximum Technically Permissible
Laden Mass, (MTPLM), it is important to
remember that the front and rear axles also
have individual maximum weights which must
not be exceeded.
To ensure adequate road holding the load
on the front axle, under all conditions,
must not be less than 40% or more than
70% of the total weight.
Warning: Turn off all gas appliances while
the vehicle is in motion. If a heating
system is fitted isolate all appliances
except the heater.
Please take care to ensure you have
allowed for the masses of all the items
you intend to carry in your motorhome
e.g. passengers, optional equipment,
essential habitational equipment and
personal effects such as clothing,
food, pets, bicycles, sailboards, sports
equipment etc.
LARGE STORAGE AREAS
The large storage areas provided in some
motorhome layouts are designed solely for the
purpose of carrying personal possessions, these
areas must not be used:
p re pa ring for t he roa d
pre pa ring for t he r o a d
Before moving off & Motorhome terms
• A
s a habitation area (eg living, sleeping or
cooking).
• To carry passengers, animals or livestock.
• F or the installation (or use) of any LPG gas
operated appliances (unless supplied fitted
by the manufacturer).
• For carrying LPG gas bottle cylinders.
• T o carry any flammable liquids, unless
properly stored, sealed and secured.
• F or the operation of an electrical
generator.
• In such a way that the load exceeds the
MTPLM, and/or minimum and maximum
axle loads.
Care must be taken to ensure that exterior
doors are closed, locked and that all
possessions are properly stored and secured
before setting off on any journey.
Ensure you distribute the payload equally on
each side of the vehicle to avoid an imbalance.
These weights, together with the MTPLM, can
be found on the VIN (Vehicle Identification
Number) plate located under the bonnet on
the front cross member.
Notes:
(i) When measuring the noseweight it is
important that the trailer is loaded.

ROOF LOADING
Some motorhome roofs can be fitted with a
roof rack (optional).
may also be displayed in the driver’s door
aperture.
THREE POINT SEAT BELTS
This section refers to the seat belts located in
the habitation area of your motorhome.
A maximum load of 50kgs can be evenly
distributed on the roof rack system.
DEDICATED TRAVELLING PASSENGER
SEATING
Seat belts are fitted to all travelling seats.
Travelling seats are designated by the
manufacturer and vary according to the layout
you have purchased. Each seat is homologated
i.e. tested to all relevant safety requirements.
NEVER travel in or attempt to install a seatbelt
to a non-designated seat.
Fastening the seat belt:
Insert tongue into buckle; a positive ‘click’
indicates correct assembly.
This figure MUST NOT be exceeded.
Note: When loading the roof rack, make sure
the load is spread evenly and do not allow
sharp objects to come into contact with the
roof surface.
Do not apply excessive load to the rear
suspension of your motorhome or allow
the vehicle to reverse with the roof
rack access ladder in the down position,
touching the ground. This may cause
excessive strain on the ladder fixing
points.
The roof areas, up to the over cab section, are
capable of withstanding an average person’s
weight (13 stone or 82.5kg).
Note: Do not walk on the over cab section.
WARNING: the roof may become slippery
in adverse conditions, dry wipe before
attempting to walk on roof section.
Extreme care should be taken to avoid
falling from the vehicle.
WARNING: When walking on the roof,
deck type shoes should be worn – not
leather soles.

Vehicle classifications & Advice on towing
Vehicle classifications
Motorhomes up to 3500kg MTPLM are P/LGV
(Private Light Goods Vehicles), motorhomes with
an MTPLM over 3500kg and up to 7500kg are
P/HGV (Private Heavy Goods Vehicles). These are
used in defining MOT classifications and vehicle
excise duty (road tax) classifications.
Advice on Towing
The towing capability of each motorhome
differs depending on the specific chassis and
engine types, (see ‘Towing Capabilities Table’ in
your specification handbook).
This table takes account of the maximum front
and rear axle loadings as well as the minimum
front axle loading in two conditions, MRO and
MTPLM condition.
Towing in these, and any other condition
requires sensible loading and distribution of
payloads to ensure the requirements of the
towing capability table are met.
When towing, the demands on both the
vehicle and driver increase. A trailer reduces
manoeuvrability, the ability to climb hills,
acceleration and braking capacity and makes
the vehicle handle and corner differently. It will
also increase the fuel consumption of
the vehicle.
Always brake in good time. Special care must
be taken when descending gradients. Change
down before going down a steep hill so the
engine can act as a brake. Ensure that the
towing vehicle tyre pressures are correct and
adjusted for full load conditions and that the
trailer tyre pressures are as recommended by
the trailer manufacturer. Regularly check the
operation of trailer brakes and lights.
For maximum stability, when loading the trailer
ensure that the loads are properly secured
during transit. Position loads so that most of
the weight is placed close to the floor and,
where possible, immediately above or close
to the axle(s). Where the load can be divided
between trailer and tow vehicle, loading
more weight into the vehicle will generally
improve the stability of the combination.
After loading the trailer, check that the nose
weight and axle loads are in accordance
22
with the manufacturer’s recommendations,
also check the rear and front axle loads on
the motorhome. When calculating the laden
weight of the trailer, remember to include the
weight of the trailer PLUS THE LOAD.
NOTE: Towing regulations vary from
country to country. It is very important
to ensure that national regulations
governing towing weights and speed
limits are observed (refer to the relevant
national motoring organisation for
information). The stated maximum
permissible towing weights refer to the
vehicle’s design limitations and NOT to
any specific territorial restrictions.
Notes:
i) Do not exceed the motorhome gross
vehicle train weight.
ii) Do not exceed the maximum front & rear
axle loads on the motorhome.
iii) Ensure the motorhome front axle load is
never less than 40% or more than 70% of
the total weight.
iv)Motorhomes with an MTPLM up to
3500kg which have European Type
approval can only be fitted with a type
approved towbar complying to 94/20/EC.
v) The limit for towing an un-braked trailer
is 750kg (based on VIN plate not actual
weight), this applies to a towed car.
vi) A car dolly with a car with a GVW over
750kg in place is considered as two
trailers, these are legal for use for recovery
but under the Road Traffic Regulations
Act 1984 the combination is limited to 40
mph on motorways and dual carriageways
and 20 mph elsewhere. A car dolly is not
legal for transportation (there is a very
specific difference between recovery and
transportation. Recovery is defined as the
removal of a broken down vehicle to a
place of safety).
vii)The maximum permitted vehicle
combination length is 18.75m, however
any combination must ensure compliance
with the turning circle requirements of
Construction and Use regulations 1986 &
97/27/EC.

Important: Your attention is drawn to the
notice affixed inside the motorhome advising
on fire precaution, ventilation and what to do
in case of fire.
Where a carbon monoxide alarm has
been fitted, read the full user instructions
provided with the unit as user instructions
vary. What to do if the alarm sounds
In Case of Fire
If the alarm sounds:
Call the emergency services.
1. G
et everyone out of the motorhome as
quickly as possible using whichever exit is
the quickest, including windows. Do not
stop to collect any personal items.
2.Raise the Alarm. Call the Fire Brigade.
3.Turn off the gas supply valve if it is safe
to do so.
4.Turn off the electricity supply at
supply point.
Smoke Alarm
This is approved by The National Caravan
Council. The NCC requires that all new vehicles
sold by its members are fitted with a smoke
alarm featuring an alarm silence facility.
Maintenance
Test the smoke alarm every week, e.g. when
doing the vacuuming, by pressing the test
button for at least 10 seconds. The alarm
signal is a penetrating, rapidly pulsating signal.
The alarm sounds as long as the test button
is pressed or there is smoke in the detector.
When the alarm goes off, always check
carefully to see that there is no fire and never
remove the battery from the alarm except
when changing it!
Always test the alarm immediately after a long
period of absence. Under the test button, there
is a red control lamp which twinkles once a
minute. This shows that the battery is correctly
connected. If the alarm does not sound when
testing, the battery must be replaced. The
alarm should be dusted and cleaned regularly
with a slightly damp cloth. In connection with
annual battery change or when required,
e.g. false alarm, clean and vacuum the alarm
carefully using a soft brush.

Carbon monoxide alarm
Test button
Removing and Replacing the Alarm
Carefully twist the alarm anti-clockwise.
Replace as diagram above.
Battery Replacement
The battery lasts approximately one year.
About a month before the battery is
completely flat, the alarm emits a short signal
once a minute, this is the signal that the
battery needs changing. The alarm works as
normal during this time.
Immediately move to fresh air-outdoors or
by an open door/ window. Do a head count
to check that all persons are accounted
for? Do not re-enter the motorhome. Move
away from the open door/ window until the
emergency services have arrived and the
vehicle has been aired out. The alarm returns
to its normal condition.
Never restart the source of a CO problem until
it has been fixed.
Never ignore the alarm.
Never remove the battery without
replacing it.
The battery should be 9 Volt batteries GP
1604,S,A, Eveready 522,216, Duracell
MN1604. Always test the alarm after changing
the battery.
Co alarms deteriate with age and must be
replaced no later than every 5 years
WARNING: Ensure that batteries are
correctly installed. Positive terminal to
positive contact (marked +), negative
terminal to negative contact. Reversing
a battery in its compartment will
immediately drain the battery and could
damage the smoke alarm.
Carbon Monoxide
Warning: The electronic test button
provides a full test of the unit’s
functionality. DO NOT try to test the alarm
with a naked flame, as this may present a
potential fire hazard.
WARNING: Never use portable cooking
or heating equipment other than electric
heaters that are not of the direct
radiant type, as it is a fire and
asphyxiation hazard.
WARNING: Appliances such as cookers
must not be used for heating.
Maintenance
The alarm should be cleaned using a vacuum
or soft brush. No detergents should be used to
clean the casing
Fire Extinguisher
It is recommended that a 1kg (2lb) minimum
capacity dry powder fire extinguisher be carried
inside your motorhome at all times.
When using a dry powder extinguisher it is
suggested that the motorhome be evacuated
until the powder has settled, to avoid inhalation.
SAFETY & SECURITY
SAFETY & SECURITY
Fire
A fat pan fire should not have a fire
extinguisher aimed at it. It should be
smothered with a fire blanket.
WARNING: Provide one dry powder fire
extinguisher of an approved type or
complying with ISO 7165, of at least 1kg
capacity, by the main exterior door and a
fire blanket next to the cooker.
Familiarise yourself with the instructions
on your fire extinguisher and the local fire
precaution arrangements.
Known as the silent killer, Carbon Monoxide
is an invisible, odourless and tasteless gas.
What are the symptoms of carbon monoxide
poisoning?
Early symptoms of carbon monoxide (CO)
poisoning can mimic many common ailments
and may easily be confused with flu or
simple tiredness. Symptoms to look out for
include: tiredness, drowsiness, headaches,
giddiness, nausea, vomiting, pains in the chest,
breathlessness, stomach pains, erratic behavior,
visual problems.
ANYONE WITH THESE SYMPTOMS
SHOULD IMMEDIATELY TURN OFF
ALL APPLIANCES AND SEEK MEDICAL
ATTENTION.
29
SAFETY & SECURITY
Ventilation, Escape paths & Security
Ventilation
All motorhomes comply with BS EN 721. The
ventilation points on your motorhome are fixed
points of ventilation which are required by the
European Standards.
SECURITY
Motorhome Theft
The theft of a motorhome can occur in the
most unlikely circumstances; from a motor-way
service area or even an owner’s driveway.
All motorhomes have ventilation at high level
and low level which have been calculated to
suit the individual needs of your motorhome.
Secure all windows and doors when your
motorhome is unoccupied even if only for a
short length of time.
High level ventilation is achieved by means of
the roof lights and washroom roof ventilators.
The low level ventilators are positioned
underneath the oven housing. Some models in
the doorway Stepwell.
VIN (Vehicle identification Number)
Record your motorhome VIN which can be
found on the base vehicle plate located on the
front cross member under the bonnet.
Under no circumstances must these vents be
blocked or obstructed, even partially.
It is advised that fixed ventilation points are
checked and cleaned (if necessary) on a regular
basis using a small brush and a domestic
vacuum cleaner.
Additional security
Consider fitting any device which might deter
or prevent intrusion by thieves.
Additional night time ventilation is obtained
by releasing the window catches and placing
them in the second groove. Note the windows
are not sealed from rain in this position.
Customers are advised to identify their
motorhome with a method for subsequent
identification if other forms of identification
have been altered or removed.
As the ventilation levels are calculated to suit
each model’s requirements there should be
no modifications made which may result in
reduced ventilation levels.
Free crime prevention advice about securing
your motorhome, protecting your valuables,
property marking either at home or whilst
on site, can be obtained from the Crime
Prevention Officer through your local
Police station.
WARNING: Do not obstruct ventilation.
WARNING: Never use portable cooking
or heating equipment other than electric
heaters that are not of the direct
radiant type, as it is a fire and
asphyxiation hazard.
WARNING: Appliances such as cookers
must not be used for heating.
ESCAPE PATHS
It is important that you do not block escape
paths to emergency exits with obstructions
or hazards.
Children
Do not leave children alone in the motorhome
in any event. Keep potentially dangerous
items out of reach, as at home eg matches,
drugs etc.

Positioning the motorhome
Note: Check and observe site regulations.
Keep to roadways unless otherwise directed.
Adhere to speed limits. Note that these are
generally 10mph.
Remember that the stopping distance
on grass is considerably greater than
on tarmac
Only a person in possession of a current driving
licence may drive on the site.
Selecting a pitch
Do not pitch in such a position that your
motorhome will obstruct others coming in.
Try to choose an area which is dry, reasonably
level and preferably with a hard base.
If you have no alternative but to pitch on a
slope try to ensure that you are facing down
the slope, for when you leave.
Levelling the motorhome
Levelling must be carried out in both directions
for the refrigerator and other equipment to
function correctly. Stepped levelling boards or
proprietary ramps are ideal for
this purpose.
Drop down corner steadies
To lower corner steadies, disengage steady by
sliding it towards centre of van, lower steady
then release lower section of the steady to
reach the ground, insert the bar provided to
crank the steady down.
DO NOT use the steadies as a jack, they are
only a means of stabilising the rear of the
motorhome. Levelling pads or boards should
be used under the steadies where the ground
is soft or uneven.
Awnings and Tents
Awnings and tents should only be used when
permission has been obtained. When on grass
and staying for more than a few days the
ground sheet and/or side flaps of awnings
should be periodically raised in order to avoid
damage to the ground.

General
The Autocruise motorhome is fitted with a
fresh water supply system and a waste water
system. All water hose used in the system is
flexible non-toxic food quality hose and all
plastic parts in the system conform to Directive
9O/128/EEC.
Fresh water tanks are located as follows:
Stardream O/S bed locker. Starburst under
kitchen unit. Starfire O/S bed locker. Tempo
&Rhythm under vehicle floor. All other vans in
an insulated box beneath vehicle floor
Water level indicator display is on the digital
electrical control panel located adjacent to
the habitation door. The fresh water is moved
through the system by Shurflo RV fresh
water pump.
Waste Tank
The waste water tank is fitted underneath
the vehicle, just behind the rear wheels and
incorporates a drain tap and inspection cap.
Place the pump into the water container
(Fig 2), ensuring that it is fully submerged
before operating the system. The dust cover
(7) is to stop contaminates falling into the
water container.
The blanking plug (Fig 5) must be fitted to
blank off the unused Compact or Filter system.
WARNING: Do not remove by pulling the
hose or electric cable.
2.Before winter storage the water system
must be completely drained and the filter
cartridge removed. Also recharge the
pump assembly or the blanking plug.
If you use the Truma external shower
(optional) and have therefore installed the
‘connector’, please drain the filter housing
by connecting up the outside shower and
allowing the remaining water to drain via
the open shower head. The filter hole may
be sealed with the filter cap.
Routine maintenance
1.Ensure that the O-ring seal on the hose
plug and socket are free from dirt.
3.Clean the water system at the start and
end of the season with sterilising fluid (see
notes under sterilising).

2.To aid fitting of the plug assembly smear
the O-ring with vegetable oil.
Sterilising
1.When cleaning the water system at the
start or end of the season It is advisable to
use a sterilising fluid, e.g. Chempro SDP
or similar. It is recommended that for this
operation the filter is removed as the fluid
reduces the effectiveness of a new filter.
ACCESSORIES
Ultraflow Water Pump Assembly
The Water Pump Assembly comes complete
with the water pump, container cover and
storage clip. The submersible pump needs no
priming and is extremely quiet in operation.
This pump can be used with both the Ultraflow

Litres until the filtrate is clear.
Maximum filtering efficiency (cleaning effect)
can only be achieved if the filter is changed at
regular intervals. The filter must be changed
within 35 days of initial use, even if it was
not in use during this time. Please remember
that water is a foodstuff. We recommend that
filtered water is consumed within 1-2 days
and advise you to drain the system after long
periods of disuse.
How to prepare your water system for
winter use
During winter caravanning it is recommended
to keep the water container within the caravan
to prevent freezing.
This can be achieved by fitting an Ultraflow
Compact Housing Unit inside the caravan in
a location where it is convenient to store a
container. e.g. the washroom or under the
sink etc.

Facts about LPG
LPG is not poisonous.
Bi-products are harmless.
There is danger if all air and oxygen were
excluded. (Ventilation holes must be kept clear
at all times).
TYPES OF GAS
Butane
Butane is supplied in the UK in green, blue or
aluminium bottles.
LPG has been given a smell by the
manufacturers in order to identify leaks.
All these have a male left hand thread EXCEPT
for Camping Gaz which has a special female
right hand thread and Calor 7kg and 15kg and
aluminium bottles which have a special clip-on

UK butane.
Propane
Propane is supplied in red, or partly red
bottles which have a female left hand
threaded connector.
Standard regulator
Scandinavian countries use the same
connector. Germany and Austria supply
propane with a male connection.
Gas Hoses
High-pressure hoses or pigtails as they are called
must be used with the new style regulator.
Propane will work at temperatures as low
as -40°C and is therefore suitable for all
winter caravanning.
LPG bottle i.e. Propane, Butane, BP and
Camping Gaz cylinders all have unique bottle
adaptor connections. It is important to check
WARNING: Inside outlet sockets shall only
be used with dedicated appliances i.e.
equipment supplied with the Motorhome.
No gas appliance shall be used outside
when connected to an inside socket.
WARNING: Ensure hoses do not become
entangled in door mechanism.
Butane is suitable for use at temperatures
down to 2°C but will not work below that.
Only use gas bottle cylinders that are located
within their dedicated position within the
gas bottle housing, never extend hose - hose
lengths must not exceed 400mm.
GAS SAFETY ADVICE
WARNING: If you smell gas or suspect a
leak and if it is safe to do so, isolate the
gas appliances and turn off the gas bottles
at the regulator. Evacuate the vehicle and
ventilate. Seek professional advice as to
the cause of the leak.

GAS
Awning Spaces LPG Appliance Exhaust
There is no danger of pollution of an enclosed
awning space by the LPG exhaust from a
refrigerator venting into it, as awning spaces
are generally well ventilated.
Space heaters may produce sufficient exhaust
to pollute the awning space, if it is totally
enclosed, from a general comfort, smell and
hygiene point of view. In the extreme case
there could be a build up of carbon dioxide to
a dangerous level.
Owners are advised to allow some fresh air
circulation in the awning space when such
appliances are in use.
PRECAUTIONS
a) N
ever look for a leak with a match. Always
use a soap solution or its equivalent when
testing connections. Do not operate any
electrical apparatus whatsoever, especially
light switches. If the leak is not obvious,
the vehicle should be evacuated and
qualified personnel consulted.
b)Always turn off the gas cylinder valve or
inlet to the vehicle when the appliances
are not in use.
39
CONNECTING SERVICES
d)Avoid naked lights when connecting or
changing a cylinder.
b)Wherever possible change gas cylinders in
the open air.
e) Check the flexible hose frequently.
c)Ensure that the gas cylinder valve(s) is/are
Closed before disconnecting any empty
cylinder or before removing the plastic cap
or plug on the outlet connection of the
replacement cylinder.
(Note. left hand thread.)
f)The gas is heavier than air and therefore
sinks to the lowest point.
g)Keep bottle gas containers outside (and
protected against frost). If they must be
kept inside make sure they are well away
from heat.
h)Always seek advice when in doubt.
WARNING: Do not use appliances with a
different working pressure to 30mbar.
WARNING: Maintain adequate spacing
of combustible materials from sources of
heat.
WARNING: Do not use independent
portable gas appliances inside the vehicle.
Always read individual appliance
instructions
Ventilation
All ventilation complies with BSEN 721 and
vents should not be obstructed in any manner
as this could lead to insufficient fresh air. In
this case the confined atmosphere becomes
depleted of oxygen which leads to the
formation of the highly poisonous gas ‘carbon
monoxide’. Carbon monoxide is odourless,
colourless and tasteless and will rapidly cause
unconsciousness and death with little or
no warning prior to collapse. THERE IS NO
DANGER WHEN ADEQUATE VENTILATION IS
PROVIDED.
Roof-mounted flue installations
All flue installations should be inspected
once a year throughout their length for
corrosion. Flues should be replaced if any
sign of perforation is found. Ensure that the
replacement is of an approved type.
CHANGING GAS CYLINDERS
The following procedure should be adopted:
a) Extinguish any fire, flame or source of
40
ignition (including cigarettes, pipes and
pilot lights) before changing gas cylinders.
d)Make firm gas-tight joints. Any leaking
vapour will smell. If a leak is suspected
after changing gas cylinders and opening
valve, test by brushing with soapy water
around the joints. Bubbles will form if
vapour is leaking.
Never use a naked flame.
e)Ensure that the replacement gas cylinder is
the correct one for the installation.
f) G
as cylinder valves are of various designs
depending on the type of cylinder and
the use for which it is intended and it
is essential that the correct pressure
regulator with the correct pressure
setting and capacity for the installation is
used in accordance with manufacturer’s
instructions.
g)In the case of a connection on the pressure
regulator which relies upon a sealing
washer(s) to maintain a gas-tight joint,
it is essential to check that the washer
is present, is sound and is correctly
positioned prior to making the connection.
Where the connection relies on a metal
to metal seating or bull nose connection
to obtain a gas-tight joint it is essential
that the mating surfaces are clean and
undamaged. In no case should a damaged
valve or connection be used.
h)Where connections are designed to be
tightened with a spanner, it is essential
that a spanner of the correct size is used
and that the union is firmly tightened,
hand tightness is not sufficient. When
self-sealing valves are incorporated in a
gas cylinder, connections should be made
in accordance with the manufacturer’s
instructions and tools should not be used.
LEAKS
Action to be taken in the event of a
suspected leak:
a)If a gas leak is suspected, close the gas
cylinder valve or other valve at the inlet
to the vehicle. Do not operate electrical
switches. Open all doors and windows to
disperse any gas escape.
b) T he strong unpleasant smell of LPG will
enable the general area of the leak to be
detected. Check that gas is not escaping
from an unlit appliance. In the case of
a leak, close cylinder valve(s) and call a
competent installer to rectify the fault.
c)If a leaking gas cylinder cannot be
stopped, remove the cylinder to a safe
place in the open air in an upright
position away from drains and any source
of ignition.
WARNING: If using cylinders other than
those recommended, the user must
ensure these are adequately supported,
ventilation openings must not be
obstructed and the cylinders must not
cause damage to other fixtures and
fittings located in the compartment.
Open ended gas hoses must always be
protected from dirt and insects.
Before turning on the gas supply at the bottle,
ensure that all gas operated equipment in the
vehicle is turned off.
CONNECTING SERVICES
c) N
ever use gas appliances without
adequate ventilation.
All gas equipment is supplied through a
central Gas Manifold System which has
individual isolation taps for each appliance
(Fig A), as follows:
FIRE
Precautions and actions to be taken:
a)A fire extinguisher of adequate size and
preferably of the dry powder type should
be available.
b)The initial use of dry powder extinguishers
is recommended only if it likely that the
leakage can be stopped by closing the
cylinder valve or that the cylinder can be
speedily removed.
c)Cool with water all gas cylinders that
cannot be removed.
d)As soon as possible remove cylinders
adjacent to the fire to a safe place in order
to gain access to the seat of the fire.
CONNECTION
Ensure that the gas regulator hose is correctly
connected to the gas cylinder in the gas bottle
compartment and that the hose connection
is tight.
Gas bottles must be fully located, seated at
the base of the bottles and restrained by the
strap provided in the dedicated compartment
position. Straps are positioned to suit 6kg, 7 kg
and 13kg bottles.

Checking for leaks in the high pressure area).
Exchanging hoses
Close the gas cylinder’s valve.
• R
emove the high pressure hose from the
gas cylinder (or from the slip-on adapter)
and from the regulator inlet.
• S crew the desired high pressure hose onto
the regulator inlet and onto the cylinder
(or onto the slip-on adapter).
Open the gas cylinder’s valve.
When changing hoses, make sure that the
gasket inside the hose connection is installed
properly and undamaged.
We recommend replacing the gasket every
time you replace a hose. Anytime after making
changes, check the hose connections to the
cylinder valve and to the inlet of the gaspressure regulator for leaks (see: Checking for
leaks in the high pressure area).
Checking for leaks in the high
pressure area
A trained technician must check the low
pressure area for leaks. In addition, we
recommend that the person responsible for
operating the gas system check the high
pressure area for leaks after every cylinder or
hose replacement.
In particular, the screw fittings on the gas
cylinder valve and on the regulator inlet should
be checked for leaks with the proper tools,
such as a leak-finder spray according to DIN
EN 14291.

by a qualified person is recommended (see list
below) who should sign and issue a periodic
inspection report.
Suitably qualified persons acceptable to the
SMMT/NCC to sign and issue Inspection and

Note: Connection to a mains voltage supply
OVERSEAS requires particular attention.
Care must be taken when connecting supplies
abroad since the supplies can be of REVERSE
POLARITY.
The significance of REVERSE POLARITY is that
when equipment is switched off it may not be
electrically isolated.
The only certain way of making equipment
safe is to unplug it.
If electrical polarity indication is not included in
your vehicle electrical equipment, it is useful to
have a means of checking polarity of the mains
supply, especially when touring overseas.
• A
generator should always run for a few
minutes prior to connection with the
motorhome electrics, to allow it to warm
up and the output to settle to a steady
level.
There are several proprietary makes of
equipment available for the purpose.
• T he AC output of generators is often
derived from an AC alternator, rectified to
DC then inverted back to AC. In essence
this means the output sinewave may not
run sophisticated electronics efficiently.
Some of the new wave of gensets are
more sophisticated in their production of
a sinewave output and are more suited to
run electronic equipment.
CHECK all vehicle equipment is set-up to accept
the site supply before actually switching on.

Please note:
It is possible that the 230V mains electrical
equipment may not all operate simultaneously.
A typical UK motorhome site mains hook up
point provides a maximum output of 10 amps
and on some continental sites the available
output may be as low as 5 amps.
A label positioned close to the MCB’s will
identify which appliances within the vehicle

It is recommended that a good quality
leisure battery is always in circuit when
the system is in use.
A deep cycling rechargeable heavy duty 12v
battery should be used to provide power for
lights and other electrical appliances.
A proprietary brand leisure battery with a 120
amp capacity is recommended.
Note: 85amp - 110 amp batteries and above
should be checked dimensionally before
purchasing, to ensure fitment within the
battery compartment, as brands vary in size.
It should be remembered that batteries suitable
for the electrical demands of a motorhome
differ in design from those for use with a car,
and whilst the system may operate with a car
battery it is strongly recommended that only a
rechargeable leisure type battery, maintained in
good condition is used. The battery should be
kept topped up at all times.
The battery should be positioned in its
compartment, which is vented to the outside,
and be properly secured before travelling.
WARNING: When connecting the battery,
ensure that the correct polarity is observed
(black is negative and red is positive) and
that the terminals are securely fastened.
Under normal circumstances it should not be
necessary to remove the battery other than for
routine inspection of terminals and ‘topping up’.
WARNING: Explosive gases may be present
at the battery. Take care to prevent flames
and sparks in the vicinity.
Your motorhome has been fitted with an
in-line fuse between the battery terminal and
strip connector. It is recommended that the
fuse rating fitted in this location does not
exceed 40 amps.
WARNING: Switch off all appliances and
lamps before connecting or disconnecting
the battery.
Smoking is prohibited around the
battery compartment.
To preserve the life of your leisure battery
and charger please observe the following:
i)Do not leave all 12v lights powered at the
same time as this will drain your leisure
battery more rapidly.
ii)If all 12v lights must be powered together,
ensure the battery is ‘in-circuit’ and that
the battery charger is turned on.
iii)For optimum performance use the
transformer/charger unit with a leisure
battery attached.
Please note the auxiliary battery supplied with
your motorhome may not be fully charged and
should be charged for a minimum of 24 hours
before use.
FAULT FINDING
1.Mains supply
If mains supply is not available when mains
switch and MCBs are switched on, check
supply at site distribution and/or mains
lead and connections.
2.Earth faults or MCB tripped
See RCD/MCD Section.
3.Charger switch fails to illuminate
Check mains supply as for No.1 and 2.
4.Battery discharged or not charging
with charger on
Check battery terminals.
5.12V distribution circuit failure
Check and replace relevant DC output fuse
as required.
6.Consult the manufacturers regarding any
further difficulties, in particular those
related to mains voltage section.
7.There are no user-serviceable or
replacement parts in the consumer unit. All
service of this nature should be referred to
the manufacturers.
Note: Never use a mains supply lead whilst
coiled. Always uncoil the full length before
connecting to the supply and remember to
protect the cable from traffic.
SOLAR PANEL CONNECTION POINT
A connection point has been included in the
motorhome electrical harness to take a 12v
supply from an aftermarket solar panel (or
similar device), to the motorhome leisure
battery. The supply is direct to this battery, and
so is not isolated / controlled by the habitation
area control panel. The solar connection point
does not provide charge to the vehicle engine /
traction battery.
The solar panel must provide a fused and
regulated output in order to connect to this
point. The connection point can be found in
close proximity to the battery box.
A kit of parts is available from your motorhome
supplier which provides the mating half of
the connection point. (The White rectangular
connector found inside the motorhome is a
two way JST-LP type connector). For further
assistance in identifying the connection, wire
colours leading to the connector are detailed
in the wiring schematic in your motorhome
specification handbook.
MAINS UNIT
This acts as the main switch for the
motorhome allowing isolation of all circuits. It
forms part of the Power System along with the
Transformer/Charger Unit (if fitted).
The mains unit replaces the conventional
fusebox. Similar, but larger ones are often
fitted in new houses.
The unit gives both overload (MCBs) and earth
leakage protection (RCD) for the electrical
supply in your motorhome.
For normal operation all switches on the unit
need to be in the ON position. The small
switches on the unit are known as MCBs
(miniature circuit breakers).
These take the place of the conventional fuse
but are more convenient.
Note: Having too many appliances switched
on at the same time will trip the MCBs. This is
a safety measure. (For appliance ratings, see
mains consumption).
In the event of a fault the MCB ‘trips’ ie
automatically moves to the OFF position.
50
After elimination of the fault the MCB can be
re-set by switching to the ON position, (against
the spring pressure in an upwards direction).
If an earth fault develops or a person touches a
live piece of equipment the leakage of current
to earth should immediately operate the RCD
(residual current device) and ‘trip’ the main
switch, to the OFF position.
This switch is only re-settable after elimination
of the fault. To re-set, operate the switch as
for MCBs.
e l e ct rica l s ys t e ms
e le ct rica l s ys t e ms
Motorho me battery
Periodically the RCD should be checked by
operating the test button marked ‘T’. The unit
should immediately switch to the OFF position.
If the unit does not switch off then a qualified
electrician should be consulted.
If the unit does switch off, the test is complete
and the switch can be re-set restoring the
supply back to normal.
Add together the current ratings for
each electrical appliance you wish to use
simultaneously and ensure the total does not
exceed the relative MCB ratings. You will
find the table on page 52 a useful guide to
typical values.
Depending upon model, switches on the front
of the consumer unit can be used to switch off
230v supplies to the charger, or, space heater,
water heater and charger.
Care is needed if a Truma Ultrastore water
heater is fitted. If a 230v supply is introduced
to the water heater when that water heater
is empty, there is a possibility that the 230v
element within the appliance will overheat
and the water heater will go into a failsafe
mode. The 230v supply to the Ultrastore will
then need to be switched off, and the element
be allowed to cool, before the Ultrastore will
function again. We recommend that the switch
marked water heater is left in the off position
unless water is present in the water heater.
12V POWER SYSTEM
Note: The connection of the battery charger
to the mains supply is in accordance with the
Regulations for Electrical Installations 16th
Edition (IEE Wiring Regulations) BS 7671:1992.

The Power System is, supplied fitted in a
convenient position and comprises:
(a) Mains Unit
TRANSFORMER/CHARGER UNIT
The transformer/charger unit has important
safety features:
• Overload protection
• Short circuit protection
The unit has been designed not only to operate
as a battery charger, but also for use as a
power supply, should a 12V DC battery not be
present in circuit. It is, however, recommended
that a good quality leisure battery is installed.
Getting Started
Your Autocruise Energy Management System
includes advanced features to keep your
electrical system up and running for the
maximum amount of time between battery

The Control Panel keeps you informed as to
the condition of the Batteries and lets you
decide how long the system will last before
re-charging is necessary.
The electrical systems are switched on and
off using the Button to the left of the display.
For security purposes, this button has to be
held for approximately two seconds and will
operate when you release the button. (This is
to prevent accidental operation).
(b) 12V Distribution
The system will automatically test itself when
it is turned on, and then go to the main
clock display.
(c) Charger/ Transformer Unit
Using the Control Panel
The Buttons to the right of the Panel are used
to Control the System:
The Clock Button shows the Clock screen.
for example a blown Bulb.
NOTE: This circuit has an automatic
protection system which restores power
when a short circuit is removed, without
the need to change any fuses.
The Voltmeter Button shows the Voltage of

When this happens a special screen is displayed
saying “Time: Forever” meaning that the
electrical systems will not flatten the Batteries
whilst the conditions stay the same.
This screen allows you to control how much
Battery Power you are using at a glance.
Note: This screen can still show a negative
value even when the charger is on, if there is a
heavy demand on the system.
By turning off unnecessary items, you can
minimise the drain on the batteries.
The Time remaining screen shows you how
long you have to go before re-charging the
Batteries. You will see the time go up and
down as you switch electrical items on and off.
For vehicles equipped with a Solar Panel, it
is important to realise that if, for example, a
cloud comes over, the “forever” condition may
go back to a normal “time remaining” display,
until the sun comes out again.
The Solar Amps button shows the charge
current provided by the Solar Panel (if fitted).
This reading will vary according to the
brightness of the Sun, cloud cover, etc.
“E” means “Empty” and “F” stands for “Full”
This information is more useful than a simple
voltmeter, and allows you to see the effect of
turning electrical items on or off on operating
time. The benefits of switching the charger on
can also be seen.
When the water tank is empty, a light will
flash to let you know that the “run-dry”
protection system has activated, and the
Pump has been temporarily switched off to
prolong its service life.
The Pump will automatically switch on again
once the Water Tank has been re-filled, and
the light will revert to a solid “on”
The Clock and Alarm settings are adjusted
using the advanced Menu.
This is accessed by holding the centre button
below the display for about two seconds.
The “Time and Alarm” menu is then selected
using the Arrow buttons,
beneath the
display, then pressing Enter

Various options can be selected, again using
the Arrow buttons
and then pressing

NOTE: The Water Pump circuit has an
automatic fuse protection system which will
reset itself once any short-circuit or overload
condition has been removed, without the need
to change any fuses.
The Energy Management System distributes
solar energy to where it is needed most,
including the Starter Battery.

For this reason, only a portion of the available
Solar Energy may be shown on the main
Ammeter Screen. (Which measures the
Auxiliary Battery current).
The Solar Panel is an option and may not be
fitted to all Motorhomes. If this is the case,
the following will be displayed when you
press the button:
The Water level is shown in 4 levels, each
represented by a segment in a Bar display.
When either the Waste Tank is full, or the
Water Tank Empty, the LED next to the Button
will flash to let you know.
The Waste level is shown as either “OK”
or “FULL”
The characteristics of the batteries means that
the time remaining may rapidly reduce once
they are close to being fully discharged.
The energy management system has an
onboard solar panel regulator which will
operate with solar panels up to 100W rating.
If the charger is on, and you are not using
many electrical items, the Batteries will be

help get you started.
The Special features Menu is accessed by first
pressing the central button under the display
and holding it for about two seconds. You
then repeatedly press either of the arrow
buttons under the display until
“Emergency Start” appears.
It is important that you follow the procedure
above, or you may blow the main 50A system
fuse (see your vehicle manual for details).
Similarly, an excessively flat Engine Battery may
result in blowing of the 50A fuse, in which
case you should replace it and have one further
attempt at the procedure.
Emergency Start will not work if your Auxiliary
Batteries are also Flat!
Battery Calibration
Your system is designed to be low
maintenance. However, there are some
circumstances when you may wish to recalibrate the battery system, for example:
Using the Engine Battery
Some Motorhomes allow you to use the
Engine Battery to run the Domestic Electrical
systems. This is also accessed through the
Advanced Features Menu.
When you connect the Hook-up, the system
performs automatic checks to ensure the
Mains Polarity is correct the right way round.
If an Error is detected, the Panel will Beep and
Display “Mains Polarity Reversed”. The System
can be used as normal, but a reminder will
appear on the Display every minute, either
until the condition is corrected, or the hook-up
is unplugged.
If the Engine is started with the hook-up
plugged in, the control Panel will beep to warn
you if you try to drive off.

5.During the initial operation of a brand new
appliance, a certain amount of fumes and
a slight smell may be noticed for a short
while. Remedial action is to immediately
run the heater at maximum output and to
ensure adequate room ventilation.
6.In winter, before switching on the heater,
remove all snow from the cowl.
7.Inspect the exhaust duct and all connections
at regular intervals and always whenever
there is a blowback (misfire). It is essential
that the exhaust duct is installed so that it
slopes upwards over its whole length and
is securely fixed with several clamps. Never
place any object on the exhaust duct, since
this could result in damage. The exhaust
duct connection to both the heater and the
cowl must be firm and well sealed. Do not
operate heaters with incorrectly fitted or
damaged exhaust ducts.
8. N
ever allow the warm air outlet on the
heater to be obstructed in any way. For
instance never hang washing on or in front
of the heater to dry. Misusing your heater
in this way could cause serious damage
from overheating. Do not place flammable
objects near the heater. Please follow these
guidelines in the interest of your own safety.
9.If the burner makes an unusual noise or
if the flame lifts off while burning, it is
likely that the regulator is faulty and it is
essential to have it checked.
10.Cleaning (with switched off appliance):
It is recommended that at least once a
year, before the heating season starts, you
remove any dust that has collected on the
heat exchanger base plate.

Truma-Ultraheat is an additional 230V electric
heater for the LPG heater models Trumatic S
3002/S 5002.
Heater operation is basically possible with gas
only, electricity only or simultaneously with
electricity and gas.
When using simultaneously the electrical unit
will switch itself off before overheating occurs
as a result of the stronger gas burner.
When using electricity only we recommend to
set the fan control on position 3 (manual or
auto), remembering to set the output level to
2000W (ensure that the fuse protection for the
power supply of the camp site is sufficient).
If more than 2000W are required (heating up/
cold temperatures) you must refer back using
gas operations as the 230V electrical operation
is a secondary heater only.

Blown air ducts
The air ducting outlets are generally of the
butterfly type and may be opened or closed
to control the quantity of air by adjusting the
butterfly valves. Twisting the disc in its housing
directs the flow in the direction required.
The quantity of air can be individually adjusted
at the air flap (f), for warm air distribution.
For uniform distribution, outlets nearest the
heater should be closed more than those
further away.
In centre position 50% of the warm air is
distributed to each outlet.
One outlet on each leg of the air ducting
layout must be kept open at all times.
Use the fan duct with 72 mm and if the fan
ducts are of different lengths or on sides with a
greater heat requirement. This means that the
air output can be used to the full on this side.
By adjusting the air flap (f) the quantity of air
can be increased individually. This means that
the air out-put on the other side is reduced.
Under no circumstances should the air ducting
outlets be blocked.
If the air output drops or the operating noise
increases, the fan impeller wheel may be
severely soiled.

Function description
The Trumatic C is a hot-air liquid-gas heating
system with integrated hot water boiler
(12 litres content). The burner operates
fan-supported, which ensures trouble- free
function even when on the move.
In winter operation (heating and hot water)
the device automatically selects the output
level required, depending on the temperature
difference between the room temperature
which has been set and the temperature at
the particular time. The Type C 6002 operates
at three output stages (2000, 4000, and
6000 W), and the Type C 4002 at two stages
(2000 and 4000 W). With the boiler filled,
the water will be automatically heated at the
same time. The water temperature depends on
the selected operating mode and the heating
power that is being emitted (with or without
86
water temperature monitoring or with drained
water system).
Heating operation is basically possible
without restriction with or without
water content.
In summer operation (hot water only), the
heating of the water content takes place
at the lowest burner stage. Once the water
temperature has been reached, the burner
switches off and the yellow monitor lamp
goes out.
Trumatic C EL units have an additional 230
V electric heating capability available as an
option (450 W/2 A) for hot water.
Important operating notes
1.If the cowl has been placed near or directly
beneath an opening window, the device
5.The installed temperature limiter shuts off
the gas supply if the appliance becomes
too hot. Therefore do not shut the warm
air outlets and the opening for the
returning circulating air.
6.Directive 2004/78/EC stipulates that a
safety shutoff device is required if motor
homes are being heated while driving. The
safety shut-off device is also recommended
for safety reasons if caravans are being
heated while driving.
The Truma SecuMotion gas pressure
regulator meets this requirement. If no
Truma SecuMotion gas pressure regulator
is installed, the gas cylinder must be closed
whilst driving and information signs must
be attached to the cylinder cabinet and in
the vicinity of the control panel.
7.Always use original Truma parts for
maintenance and repair work!
Operating instructions
Always observe the operating instructions
and Important operating notes prior to
starting! The vehicle owner is responsible
for the correct operation of the appliance.
The installer or vehicle owner must apply the
yellow sticker with the warning information,
which is enclosed with the appliance, to a
place in the vehicle where it is clearly visible
to all users (e.g. on the wardrobe door)! Ask
Truma to send you stickers, if necessary.
Before using for the first time, it is
m = Control knob ‘closed’
n = Control knob ‘drain’
The safety/drain valve is held closed by an
electrical coil. To save battery power, we
recommend to open the valve if the vehicle
is not in use for a prolonged period!
If the temperature at the safety/drain valve
is less than 4°C, the water contents may
discharge on its own accord if the appliance is
not in operation (also if there is a failure)! To
avoid water loss, switch the device on (summer
or winter operation) and close the safety/drain
valve at the actuating button by raising it up
(position m).
Without heater operation, the safety/drain
valve can only be closed again at temperatures
above 8°C!
The draining socket of the electrical safety/drain
valve must always be kept clear (free from slush,
ice, leaves etc.)! There shall be no claims under
guarantee for damage caused by frost!

Gas operation (heating and
hot water)
The thermostat setting on the control panel
(1 – 9) must be determined individually
depending on the heating requirement and
the type of vehicle. For an average room
temperature of about 23°C, we recommend a
thermostat setting of about 6 – 8.
2.Switch on power for water pump (main
switch or pump switch).
3.Open hot water taps in kitchen and
bathroom, (set preselecting mixing taps
or single-lever fittings to ‘hot’). Leave taps
open until the water heater has forced out
air and filled up with water and water is
flowing out of the taps.
If just the cold water system is being operated,
without using the water heater, the heater
tank also fills up with water. In order to avoid
damage by frost, the water contents must be
drained by operating the safety/drain valve,
also when the water heater has not been used.
As an alternative, two shutoff valves, resistant
to hot water, can be fitted in front of the cold
and hot water connection.
When connecting to a central water
supply (rural or city mains), a pressure
reduction valve must always be installed
to prevent pressures above 2.8 bar from
developing in the water heater.

and the current room temperature. Once the
room temperature set on the control panel has
been reached, the heating will switch off.
If the boiler is filled, the water will
automatically be heated at the same time.
The water temperature is then dependent
on the heating output being given off, and
the duration of heating required to reach the
desired room temperature.
In this operational mode, the yellow monitor
lamp (g – boiler heat-up phase) only lights up if
the water temperature is below 5°C!

Maintenance
The water container used is made of stainless
steel, which is foodstuff-compatible.
Use wine vinegar for descaling the water
heater, this being introduced into the appliance
via the water supply. Allow the product to
react and then thoroughly flush out the
appliance with plenty of fresh water. To sterilise
the water we recommend ‘Certisil-Argento’.
Other products, particularly those containing
chlorine are unsuitable.
To avoid infestation by microorganisms, the
boiler must be heated to 70°C at regular
intervals (only possible in winter operation).
The water can be heated to up to 70°C
depending on the heating power that is
required to achieve the room temperature.
Do not use the water as drinking water!
Fuses
The device and control panel fuses are on the
electronic control unit on the device.
Device fuse:
6.3 AT – slow –

– extinguish all naked flames
– do not smoke
– switch off the appliances
– shut off the gas cylinder
– open windows and door
– do not actuate any electrical switches
– have the entire system checked by an expert!
Repairs may only be carried out by an expert!
A new O-ring must always be installed after
dismantling the exhaust duct!
1.Any modifications to the unit (including
the exhaust duct and the cowl) or the use
of spare parts and accessories that are
important to the operation of the system
(e.g. the time switch) that are not original
Truma parts and failure to follow the
installation and operating instructions will
cancel the warranty and indemnify Truma
from any liability claims. It also becomes
illegal to use the appliance, and in some
countries this even makes it illegal to use
the vehicle.
2.The operating pressure of the 30 mbar gas
supply must correspond with the operating
pressure of the device (see data plate).
3.Liquid gas systems must comply with the
technical and administrative regulations of
the respective country of use (e.g. EN 1949
for vehicles or EN ISO 10239 for boats in
Europe). National directives and regulations
(e.g. DVGW worksheet G 607 for vehicles
and G 608 for boats in Germany) must be
complied with.
The testing of the gas system must be
repeated every two years by a qualified
specialist and, if appropriate, confirmed
on the inspection certificate (in Germany,
f. ex. DVGW Worksheet G 607 for motor
vehicles or G 608 for boats). The vehicle
owner is always responsible for arranging
the inspection.
Pressure regulating devices and hoses must
be replaced with new ones no more than
10 years after their date of manufacture
(every 8 years if used commercially). This is
the responsibility of the operator.
4.Liquid gas equipment must not be used
when refuelling, in multi-storey car parks,
in garages or on ferries.
5.During the initial operation of a brand new
appliance (or after it has not been used for
some time), a slight amount of fumes and
smell may be noticed for a short while. It is
a good idea to heat the device up several
times in summer operation (60°C) and to
make sure that the area is well ventilated.
6.If the burner makes an unusual noise or
if the flame lifts off, it is likely that the
regulator is faulty and it is essential to have
it checked.
7.Items sensitive to heat (e.g. spray cans)
must not be stored in the installation area,
since excess temperatures may under
certain circumstances be incurred there.
8.Only pressure control equipment that
complies with EN 12864 (in vehicles) and EN
ISO 10239 (for boats) with a fixed delivery
pressure of 30 mbar must be used for the
gas system. The flow rate of the pressure
control device must correspond to at least
the maximum consumption of all devices
installed by the system manufacturer.
e quip me nt de ta ils
Once the room temperature set on the control
panel has been reached, the heating will
switch off.
For vehicles we recommend the Truma
SecuMotion gas pressure regulator and the
Truma DuoComfort automatic changeover
valve for the two-cylinder system.
At temperatures of around 0°C or less the
gas pressure regulator and the changeover
valve must be operated using the EisEx
de-icing system.
Controller connecting hoses that meet national
regulations must always be used in the
respective country for which the equipment
is destined. These hoses must be checked
regularly for brittleness. Winter-proof special
hoses must always be used if the equipment is
operated during the winter.

7.Items sensitive to heat (e.g. spray cans)
must not be stored in the installation area,
since excess temperatures may under
certain circumstances be incurred there.
8.Only pressure control equipment that
complies with EN 12864 (in vehicles) and EN
ISO 10239 (for boats) with a fixed delivery
pressure of 30 mbar must be used for the
gas system. The flow rate of the pressure
control device must correspond to at least
the maximum consumption of all devices
installed by the system manufacturer.
3.Liquid gas systems must comply with the
technical and administrative regulations of
the respective country of use (e.g. EN 1949

Europe). National directives and regulations
(e.g. DVGW worksheet G 607 for vehicles
and G 608 for boats in Germany) must be
complied with.
For vehicles we recommend the Truma
SecuMotion gas pressure regulator and the
Truma DuoComfort automatic changeover
valve for the two-cylinder system.
For vehicles for commercial use, the relevant
accident prevention regulations issued by the
professional associations are to be respected
(BGV D 34).
At temperatures of around 0°C or less the
gas pressure regulator and the changeover
valve must be operated using the EisEx
de-icing system.
The inspection of the gas system is to be
repeated every two years by an approved liquid
gas specialist (DVFG, TÜV, DEKRA). This is to
be confirmed on the corresponding inspection
certificate (G 607, G 608, or BGG 935).
Controller connecting hoses that meet national
regulations must always be used in the
respective country for which the equipment
is destined. These hoses must be checked
regularly for brittleness. Winter-proof special
hoses must always be used if the equipment is
operated during the winter.
The keeper of the vehicle is responsible for
arranging the inspection.
Pressure regulating equipment and hoses must
be replaced with new ones no more than 10
years after the date of manufacture (every 8
years if used commercially).

Any modifications to the unit, including
accessories, exhaust duct, and cowl, or the
use of spare parts and accessories that are
important to the operation of the system
that are not original Truma parts and failure
to follow the installation and operating
instructions will cancel the warranty and
indemnify Truma from any liability claims. It
also becomes illegal to use the appliance, and
in some countries this even makes it illegal to
use the vehicle.
The gas supply’s operating pressure (30 mbar)
must be the same as the unit’s operating
pressure (see type plate).
The vehicle owner is always responsible for
arranging the inspection.
Liquid gas equipment may not be used when

Heat-sensitive objects such as spray cans
or flammable liquids may not be stored in
the same compartment where the heater is
installed because, under certain conditions, this
area may be subject to elevated temperatures.
Only pressure regulating equipment that
complies with EN 12864 (in vehicles) with fixed
output pressure of 30 mbar may be used for
the gas system. The flow rate of the pressure
control device must correspond to at least the
maximum consumption of all devices installed
by the system manufacturer.
For vehicles, we recommend Truma’s
SecuMotion gas pressure regulator; for the
two-cylinder gas system we also recommend
the Truma DuoComfort changeover valve.
At temperatures below 5° C, the gas pressure
regulator or the changeover valve should be
used with EisEx regulator heating.
Controller connecting hoses that meet national
regulations must always be used in the
respective country for which the equipment
is destined. These hoses must be checked
regularly for brittleness. Winter-proof special
hoses must always be used if the equipment is
operated during the winter.
Pressure regulating equipment and hoses
must be replaced with new ones no more
than 10 years after the date of manufacture
(every 8 years if used commercially). This is the
responsibility of the operator.
Do not use the boiler water as
drinking water!
Important operating notes
If the cowl has been placed near or directly
beneath an opening window, the device
must be equipped with an automatic shut-off
device in order to prevent operation with the

The vehicle owner is responsible for the correct
operation of the appliance.
The installer or vehicle owner must apply the
yellow sticker with the warning information,
which is enclosed with the appliance, to a
place in the vehicle where it is clearly visible
to all users (e.g. on the wardrobe door)! Ask
Truma to send you stickers, if necessary.
Before using for the first time, it is essential
to flush the entire water supply through with
clean warm water. If the heater is not being
used, always drain the water contents if there
is a risk of frost. There shall be no claims under
guarantee for damage caused by frost!

Frost Control (safety/drain valve)
FrostControl is a currentless safety/drain
valve. When there is a danger of frost, it
automatically drains the contents of the boiler
through a drainage muff. If excessive pressure
is present in the system, pressure will be
automatically intermittently equalized through
the pressure relief valve.

at all times so the water can drain out easily!
No warranty given for frost damage!
Set the rotary switch to the operational setting
‘d’. Turn the rotary switch (a) to the desired
thermostat setting (1 – 5). The green LED (b)
for operation is lit and simultaneously indicates
the position of the selected room temperature.
The yellow LED (g – water’s heat-up phase)
will be lit only when the water temperature is
below 5° C!
Taking into operation
Heating operation is basically possible without
restriction with or without water content.
The unit automatically selects the required
power level according to the temperature
difference between the setting on the control
panel and the current room temperature.
Check to make sure the cowl is unobstructed.
Be sure to remove any covers that may
be present.
Turn on gas cylinder and open quick-acting
valve in the gas supply line.
After reaching the room temperature set on
the control panel, the burner will switch off.
The warm-air fan will continue to run at a low
speed as long as the blow-out temperature (on
the unit) is higher than 40° C.
Summer operation (boiler
operation only)
Move the rotary switch on the control panel to
position (c – summer operation) 40° C or 60°
C. The green (b) and yellow (g) LEDs light up.
If the boiler is filled, the water will
automatically be heated at the same time.
The water temperature is then dependent
on the heating output being given off, and
the duration of heating required to reach the
desired room temperature.
After reaching the set water temperature (40°
C or 60° C), the burner will switch off and the
yellow LED (g) will be extinguished.
Winter operation
Heating with water temperature monitoring
Set the rotary switch to the operational setting
‘e’. Set the rotary switch (a) to the desired
thermostat setting (1 – 5). The green LED (b)
for operation is lit and simultaneously indicates
the position of the selected room temperature.
The yellow LED (g) indicates the water’s heatup phase.
The unit automatically selects the required power
level according to the temperature difference
between the setting on the control panel and
106
the current room temperature. Once the room
temperature set on the control panel has been
reached, the burner switches back to the lowest
stage, and heats the water content to 60° C.
The yellow LED (g) will be extinguished after the
water temperature is reached.
Heating with drained water system
Set the rotary switch to the operational setting
‘d’. Turn the rotary switch (a) to the desired
thermostat setting (1 – 5). The green LED (b)
for operation is lit and simultaneously indicates
the position of the selected room temperature.
The yellow LED (g) will be lit only when the
temperature of the unit is below 5° C!
The unit automatically selects the required
power level according to the temperature
difference between the setting on the control
panel and the current room temperature. After
reaching the room temperature set on the
control panel, the burner will switch off.
Switching off
Use the rotary switch to switch off heater
(position f). The green LED (b) goes off.
If the green LED (b) blinks after switching off,
then the unit’s after-running is active in order
to reduce the unit’s temperature. This will end
after a few minutes and the green LED (b) will
go off.
Always drain water contents if there is a
risk of frost!
If the appliance is not to be used for a
prolonged period, close the quick-acting valve in
the gas supply line and turn off the gas cylinder.
Red LED ‘Failure’
The red LED (h) will be lit if there is a failure.
Please consult the Trouble-Shooting list for
possible causes.
Reset (failure reset) the unit by switching it off
and back on.
If the window switch is opened, the heating
unit will stop operating and the red LED (h) will
blink. Once the window switch is closed, the
heating unit will continue operation and the
green LED (b) will be lit continuously.
If just the cold water system is being operated,
without using the water heater, the heater
tank also fills up with water. To avoid frost
damage, the boiler must be drained through
the drain valve, even if it was not operated.
As an alternative, two shutoff valves, resistant
to hot water, can be fitted in front of the cold
and hot water connection.
When connecting to a central water supply
(rural or city mains), a pressure reduction
valve must always be installed to prevent
pressures above 2.8 bar from developing in
the water heater.
Draining the water heater
Switch off power to water pump (main or
pump switch).
Open hot water taps in kitchen and bathroom.
Turn the rotary switch on the drain valve
(FrostControl) by 180° until it engages,
whereby the push button moves out and the
drain valve opens.
Filling the water heater
The boiler is now drained directly to the
outside via the drain valve. Place a bucket
beneath the outlet to check whether the
water content has completely drained away
(10 litres). There shall be no claims under
guarantee for damage caused by frost!
Check if the rotary switch for the drain valve
(FrostControl) is set to ‘Operation’, meaning
that it is parallel to the water connection
and engaged.
Maintenance
Only original Truma parts may be used for
maintenance and repair work!
When the temperature at FrostControl is below
about 7° C, first switch on the heater to warm
the installation compartment and FrostControl.
After several minutes, when the temperature
at FrostControl is above 7° C, the drain valve
can be closed.
Close the drain valve by pushing the push
button until it engages. Switch on power for
water pump (main switch or pump switch).
Open hot water taps in kitchen and bathroom,
(set preselecting mixing taps or single-lever
fittings to ‘hot’). Leave the fittings open for as
long as it takes for the boiler to displace
the air and fill up, and the water to flow
without interruption.

The heating cartridge is controlled in the same
way as the gas boiler.
Installation and repairs may only be carried out
by a professional. National regulations must be
adhered to.
BOILER DESIGN
The boiler consists of three eccentrically-fitted
cylinders (heat exchanger, water jacket for the
heating system and, outermost, water jacket for
hot water). The two outer pipes, and their ends
and connections, are made of stainless steel,
while the heat exchanger is made of aluminium.
The heat exchanger is divided into two semicircles. The burner is located in the upper
half, being the combustion chamber, and
the combustion gases are expelled through
the lower half. The burner unit is fitted on
the end of the heat exchanger. It consists
of a combustion fan, burner, solenoid valve
and intake/exhaust connections. Two heating
cartridges are fitted to the water jacket of the
heating system. Maximum output is 2 or 3 kW,
depending on model.
DESCRIPTION OF FUNCTIONS
Using LPG
When LPG operation is selected on the control
panel, the combustion fan starts. When the
fan speed is correct, it signals the circuit board
that the boiler can be lit. The circuit board
sends ignition sparks to the spark plug at the
same time as it sends electricity to the solenoid
Warm water
When only warm water is required, for
example during the summer, no settings need
to be made, the boiler will look after this
function automatically.
The pump will only start when the temperature
in the vehicle is lower than the set temperature
(see item 4, Control Panel). If the vehicle
temperature is higher, the pump will not start.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
• The boiler must not be started if there is
no glycol in the system.
• T he LPG boiler and heating cartridge may
be operated in parallel.
• T he heating system may be heated up
without the warm water heater being filled
with fresh water.
• A
lways switch off the main isolator for the
boiler when the vehicle is not being used.
• A

4.The heater will now drain directly below
the vehicle through the safety/drain valve
hose. Check that all the water is emptied
out (about 7-10 litres). Leave the valve in
the open position until the next time the
heater is used.
Always rinse out the heater before it is used,
particularly if it has not been in operation for
some time. Note: the hot water is not intended
for drinking or cooking. When the heater
is in continuous use, it should be emptied
approx. once a month, to ensure that a new air
cushion is formed in the heater.
Note: Check that the automatic check valve (N)
is open and is allowing air to enter the heater
when it is being drained, and that the hose (O)
is not blocked.
The air cushion is essential for absorbing
pressure surges in the heater. For emptying
specially-adapted boilers, as well as any other
freshwater systems in the vehicle, please refer
to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Note: The warm water heater should
always be drained of fresh water when
there is a risk of frost and when the
caravan is not in use.
The warranty does not cover frost damage.
Draining the heater using the combined

THE HEATING CARTRIDGES
All Compact 3010s are fitted with two 230V
heating cartridges with a maximum output
of either 2100 or 3150W. Select the heating
cartridge output on the control panel.
It is just as important that cushions or blankets
do not interrupt the flow of air behind
backrests and wall cabinets.
MAINTAINING THE HEATING SYSTEM
Wintercamping
While camping during the winter, ensure that
the flue is kept clear of snow and ice, since the
inlet air to the LPG boiler enters through the
flue. Do not start the LPG boiler until the flue
is completely free of snow. A flue extension
(part no. 3000 320) for fitting on the roof is
recommended for winter camping.
Always check that the input fuse of the vehicle
has the correct amperage in relation to the
selected output.
Note these ratings are for the boiler only.
Airstream
1050W requires a 6 amp fuse.
2100W requires a 10 amp fuse.
3150W requires a 16 amp fuse

THE CIRCULATION PUMP
A circulation pump is required to circulate the
heated glycol fluid. A 12V circulation pump is
fitted in the expansion tank.
An optional 230V circulation pump can be
fitted on the boiler. Selection of circulation
pump is made with a switch on the control
panel. The room thermostat on the control
panel controls the circulation pump, i.e.
switches it on or off according to the amount
of heat required.
System temperature
The boiler is set to a system temperature of
80°C, i.e. the temperature of the glycol fluid as
it circulates in the heating system.
The LPG system
The LPG system should be checked regularly by
a professional, who will ensure that there are
no leaks from connections or hoses.
LPG hoses should be changed according to
national regulations, maximum of five years.
Check the date stamp on the hose. Hose has a
propensity to dry out and crack.
To increase safety, we recommend fitting
an Alde leak gauge, type 4071, as close as
possible to the pressure reduction valve.

Air circulation
In order to achieve the best possible result from
the principle of convected heat, it is important
to allow air to circulate freely under bunks, and
behind backrests and wall-mounted cabinets.

If the vehicle has a fitted carpet, ensure that
the carpet does not obstruct the air supply to
the radiators.
Leak gauge, type 4071
Regularly check the heating system’s fluid level
in the expansion tank. The level should be
about 1cm above the minimum indicator in a
cold tank. The heating system should be filled
with a mixture of water and glycol.
For preference, use high quality ready mixed
glycol (with inhibitor) intended for use in
aluminium heating systems.
If using concentrated glycol, the mixture
should consist of 60% water and 40% glycol.
If the heating system will be exposed to
temperatures below -25°C, the glycol content
must be increased, but not to more than
50%. Any vessels used for the liquid must be
spotlessly clean, and the pipes in the heating
system must be free of contamination. This will
prevent the growth of bacteria in the system.

heater with a volume of approx. 8.5-litres fresh
water. The warm water heater can produce
around 12 litres of 40°C water per half-hour (at
a cold water temperature of 10°C). If the heating
cartridges are used instead of gas for heating the
boiler, the capacity is slightly reduced.
The glycol mixture should be changed every
second year, since its ability to protect against
corrosion, for example, will deteriorate. The
glycol content should be checked before
topping up with new liquid. This will ensure
that the concentration of glycol in the mixture
is not too high.
If the fluid level in the expansion tank falls for
reasons other than evaporation, please check
all joints, drain cocks and bleeder screws to
ensure that they are not leaking. If the glycolwater mixture leaks out, rinse with water and
wipe up. Never allow the heating system to
stand empty of glycol.
FILLING THE SYSTEM WITH GLYCOL FLUID
NB! Any vessels used to carry the fluid must
be spotlessly clean and the pipes in the system
must be free of contamination. This will
prevent the growth of bacteria in the system.
The system is filled through the expansion
tank, either manually or using the Alde
filling pump which both tops up and bleeds
the system. For manual filling, unfasten the
circulation pump nut (R) and lift the pump (S)
out of the tank. Slowly pour the glycol mixture
into the tank. Bleed the system.
Top up with more liquid if the level has fallen
after bleeding. Bleed a newly filled system
regularly during the first days the heating
system is in operation.

system (please refer to the instruction manual
of the vehicle for their locations). Leave
the bleeder screws open until they start
discharging fluid, and then close them. Start
the circulation pump and let it run for a while.
Check that the pipes and radiators around the
vehicle are heating up.
If they still fail to heat up, try the
following:

Depending on how the pipes have been fitted,
air pockets may form when the system is filled
with glycol fluid.
A sign that there is air trapped in the system
is that the heat released into the pipes only
extends a metre or so from the boiler even
though the circulation pump is operating.
In newly-filled systems, small air bubbles
can form in the expansion tank, creating a
murmuring sound. If the circulation pump
is stopped for a few seconds, the bubbles
will disappear.
Bleeding
If a bleeder screw is fitted to the outgoing
pipe, open this bleeder screw and leave it open
until it starts to discharge water.
If the boiler is fitted with an automatic bleeder,
there is no need to bleed it manually. Start the
LPG boiler. The circulation pump should be
switched off.
Open the remaining bleeder screws in the

The easiest way to bleed the heating system is
to place the vehicle on a sloping surface or to
raise one end of the vehicle using a jack. Bleed

About lpg
The properties of LPG
LPG is a petroleum product, formally known
as ‘liquid petroleum gas’. It is mainly made up
of propane and butane gas. The advantage
of propane is that it remains gaseous at
temperatures as low as -40°C, while butane
loses effectiveness at +10°C. For this reason,
propane is used in colder countries.
The cylinders contain LPG both in liquid and
gaseous form. When the cylinders are filled,
the pressure turns the gas into liquid. When
the cylinder valve is opened, the LPG becomes
a gas again. The risk involved in using LPG is
that any leaking gas may ignite and explode.
Since LPG is heavier than air, any leaking gas
will collect at the lowest point.
LPG contains no toxic substances, but
breathing in concentrated gas may have a
certain anaesthetising effect, and can also
result in shortness of breath and symptoms
of suffocation.
These symptoms quickly disappear if the
sufferer breathes in ordinary air or oxygen.
Naturally, it is inadvisable to inhale either LPG
or exhaust fumes. To make it easier to detect
gas leaks, a substance with a distinctly rank
smell has been added.
Combustion
Complete combustion of LPG only generates
carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapour, just
like the air we exhale.
A good supply of air is essential to ensure
complete combustion. The flame should
burn with a weak blue colour, the centre
of the flame should be blue/green. LPG is
extremely environmentally compatible and
does not generate any soot during complete
combustion. It can be stored in cylinders
for an unlimited time period, without any
deterioration of quality.
Pressure
The LPG burner usually works at a lower
pressure than that in the cylinder. Low pressure
(0-50 mbar) and intermediate pressure (50
mbar- 2.0 bar) are created by allowing the
gas to pass through a reduction valve. High
pressure (over 2.0 bar), is unreduced pressure
mainly used in camping equipment. Low
pressure and intermediate pressure are always
reduced pressure.
WARRANTY
Alde’s warranty is valid for 3 years from the
date of purchase of the caravan.
It covers material defects or manufacturing
faults on the Alde heating system.
It does not cover frost damage, normal wear
and tear parts, Antifreeze, batteries or other
consumables. If you have a problem please
contact your dealer or Alde UK direct.
Note: Only genuine Alde parts should be
used as replacement parts.

THIS PUMP IS FOR CARAVAN AND
MOTORHOME USE ONLY. This pump is not
ignition protected and is NOT TO BE USED
in marine applications. The user assumes all
liability if misused and the warranty is void.
Leisure Accessories Limited realizes that
in many instances our pump is being
installed as a replacement pump within an
existing system. The following guidelines
should be considered to achieve optimum
pump operation.
Mounting
The pump can be at the same level or below
the water tank. It may be positioned above the
water tank if needed, as it is capable of a 6'
(1.8m) vertical prime. Horizontal inlet tubing
will allow priming to 30' (9m).
Consider a location that allows easy access if
maintenance is required. The pump should not
be located in an area of less than one cubic
foot (0.03M3) unless adequate ventilation is
provided. Excessive heat may trigger the integral
thermal breaker and interrupt operation.
When the temperature drops the breaker will
automatically reset and start operation.
The pump may be mounted in any position. If
mounting the pump vertically, the pump head
should be in the down position so that in the
unlikely event of a leak, water will not enter
the motor.
Use the correct size screws (maximum 4mm
ø) to secure the pump. Choose a solid surface
(thick plywood) that will not amplify pump
operation. The mounting feet are intended to
isolate the pump from the mounting surface;
over tightening, flattening, or use of oversized
screws will reduce the ability to isolate
vibration/noise.
(frame). The earth wire must be the same size
(gauge/mm3) as the positive wire. Wire size
(gauge/mm3) is based on the distance from
the power source to the pump. The minimum
recommended size wire is NO.14 gauge
(2.5mm3). Lengths of 6-15m (20-50') use
No.12 gauge (4mm3).
The total current draw on the circuit must
not exceed 15 amps. If the pump is used in
conjunction with other components, overload
current protection (fuse or circuit breaker)
and wire size must be for the total amp
requirement of all devices on the circuit.
e quip me nt de ta ils
e quipme nt de ta il s
fresh water pump
Plumbing
We recommend at least 30cm (1') of 13mm
½") ID. flexible high pressure tubing to both
ports. Ideally the pump’s ports/filter should
not be connected to rigid pipe. The pump’s
normal oscillation may transmit through rigid
plumbing causing noise, and possibly loosen
or crack components. Installation of a 50 mesh
strainer is recommended to prevent foreign
debris from entering the pump. Our In-Line
filter has a twist-lock feature allowing simple
cleaning when plumbed with flexible tubing.
The swivel barb fittings provide easy removal if
maintenance or access is required. The fittings
are designed with a ‘taper-seal’, creating water
tight connection when hand-tightened. Always
secure barb tubing connections with properly
sized stainless steel clamps to prevent leaks.
Never use Teflon tape or sealing compounds
on threads. Sealant may enter the pump
causing a failure. Failure due to foreign debris
is not covered under warranty. We do not
recommend using metal nuts on the port
connections. We recommend plastic nuts,
hand-tightened, plus no more than 1½, turns
with a wrench. Maximum torque is 3' 1lb (Nm
4.05 / 0.416 kg/m).
Electrical
The pump should be on a dedicated (individual)
circuit protected by the specified ‘anti-surge’
fuse indicated on the motor label. A switch
rated at or above 15 amps is recommended,
and must interrupt current flow on the positive
(+ red) lead.
Rapid cycling may be caused by excessive
back pressure created by one or more of the
following within a plumbing system:
The pump must be grounded to an earth
Small ID. lines. Pipe/tubing should be at
Water filters and purifiers not on separate
feed lines.
Flow restrictors in taps and shower heads.
127
e quipme nt de ta il s
Restrictive fittings and connections
(elbows, ‘T’s’, feeder lines to taps, etc.)
Switch Shut-Off
Restrictions in a plumbing system may cause
the pump to rapid cycle (ON/OFF within 2
seconds) during low flow demands. Cycling
should be minimized to prevent pulsating
flow, and to achieve maximum pump life.
To determine if adjustment is necessary, turn
tap on to lower than average flow of water.
The pump should cycle, but its ‘OFF time’
must be 2 seconds or longer. If the cycling is
correct, leave well enough alone. If the pump
is cycling rapidly increase the setting by turning
the screw clockwise (1½, turn maximum)
until the pump operates for 1 second with at
least 2 seconds ‘OFF time’. If cycling cannot
be minimized consider removing plumbing
restrictions or install an accumulator.
Sanitizing
Fresh water systems require periodic
maintenance to deliver a consistent flow
of fresh water. Depending on the use and
the environment the system is subject to,
sanitizing is recommended prior to storing
and before using the water system after
a period of storage. Systems with new
components, or ones that have been subjected
to contamination, should also be disinfected
as follows:
Use the following method to determine the
amount of common household bleach needed
to sanitize the tank.
1.Multiply ‘litres of tank capacity’ by 1; the
result is the millilitres of bleach needed to
sanitize the tank.
2.Mix into solution the proper amount of
bleach within a container of water.
3.Pour the solution (water/bleach) into the
tank and fill the tank with fresh water.
4.Open all taps (HOT & COLD) allowing the
water to run until the distinct odour of
chlorine is detected.
5.The standard solution must have four
128
hours of contact time to disinfect
completely. Doubling the solution
concentration allows for contact time of
one hour.
6.When the contact time is completed, drain
the tank. Refill with fresh water and purge
the plumbing of all sanitizing solution.
NOTE: The sanitizing procedure outlined
above is in conformance with the
approved procedures of RVIA ANSI A119.2
and the USA Public Health Service. It may
not be permitted or recommended in
certain countries.
Winterising
If water is allowed to freeze in the system,
serious damage to the plumbing and the pump
may occur. Failures of this type will void the
warranty. The best guarantee against damage
is to completely drain the water system.
However, non-toxic antifreeze for fresh water,
if available at local caravan centres, may be
used.
CAUTION: Do not use Automotive
Antifreeze to winterize drinking water
systems. Such solutions are highly toxic.
Ingestion may cause serious injury or
death. To properly drain the system
perform the following:
1.Drain the water tank. If the tank doesn’t
have a drain valve open all taps allowing
the pump to operate (15 min. ON, 15 min.
OFF) until the tank is empty.
2.Open all the taps (including the lowest
valve or drain in the plumbing) and allow
the pump to purge the water from the
plumbing, then turn the pump OFF
3. Using a pan to catch the remaining water,
remove the plumbing at the pump’s inlet/
outlet ports. Turn the pump ON, allowing
it to operate until the water is expelled.
Turn OFF power to the pump once the
plumbing is emptied. Do not reconnect
pump plumbing. Make a note at tank filler
as a reminder: ‘Plumbing is Disconnected’.
4.All taps must be left open to guard against
any damage.
Troubleshooting
Vibration induced by road condition can cause
plumbing or pump hardware to loosen, Check

waeco coolmatic cr-80 refrigerator
Before starting your new refrigerator for the first
time, you should clean it inside and outside with
a damp cloth for hygienic reasons (please also
refer to the see ‘Cleaning and care’).
The cooling capacity can be influenced by:
• the ambient temperature
• the amount of food to be conserved
• the frequency with which the door is
opened.
8.1 Energy saving tips
• Choose a well ventilated installation
location which is protected from
direct sunlight.
Conserving foodstuffs
• A
llow hot food to cool down first before
you put it in the refrigerator.
Do not conserve warm food in the refrigerator.
You can conserve foodstuffs in the refrigerator.
The time for which the food can be conserved
in this way is usually stated on the package.
• D
o not leave the door open for longer
than necessary.
Do not place glass containers containing liquid
in the freezer compartment. Food which can
easily absorb tastes and odours and liquids and
products with a high alcohol content should be
conserved in airtight containers.
• D
efrost your refrigerator as soon as a layer
of ice forms.
The refrigerator is divided in different zones
with different temperatures:
•
• T he colder zones are immediately above
the drawers for fruit and vegetables, near
the back wall.
• D
o not open the refrigerator more often
than necessary.
Avoid unnecessarily low temperature settings.
• C

regular intervals.
8.2 Using the refrigerator
The fridge conserves fresh foodstuffs. The
freezer compartment conserves frozen
foodstuffs and freezes fresh foodstuffs.
Ensure that food or liquids in glass containers
are not excessively cooled. Liquids expand
when they freeze and can thus destroy the
glass containers.
Food may only be stored in its original
packaging or in suitable containers. Ensure that
the objects placed in the refrigerator are suitable
• O
bserve the temperature information and
best before date on the food packaging.
Observe the following when using
the refrigerator:
• N
ever re-freeze products which have
started defrosting or have been defrosted,
but consume them as soon as possible.
• W
rap food in aluminium foil or cling film
and shut in a suitable box with a lid. This
ensures that aromas, the shape and the
freshness will be better conserved.

IMPORTANT: Before using the appliances
for the first time, remove all accessories and
packing in the grill and oven, including any
surface protection film, i.e. plastic coating.
Clean all interior surfaces with hot soapy water
to remove any residual protective covering of
oil and rinse carefully.
Warning: Accessible parts may be hot when
the grill is used, young children should be
kept away. When cooking always ensure
young children are kept away.
Ensure the gas cylinder is turned on. In the
event of a gas smell, turn off at the cylinder and
contact supplier. The burners on this appliance
have fixed aeration and no adjustment is
required. Depending on the gas being used, the
burners should flame as follows:
Propane: The flames should burn quietly with
a blue/green colour with no sign of yellow tips.
Butane: Normally on initial lighting, as small
amount of yellow tipping will occur and then
slightly increases as the burner heats up.
IMPORTANT: The control tap on this
appliance operates both the grill and oven
burners. To ensure safe operation it is not
possible to operate both burners at the
same time.
Using the hob burners
1.Ensure gas cylinder/supply is connected
and turned on. In the event of a gas
smell turn off at gas cylinder/mains and
contact supplier
2.Flame supervision: Each burner is
controlled individually and is monitored
by a thermocouple probe. In the event
of the burner flames being accidentally
extinguished, turn off the burner control
and do not attempt to re-ignite the burner
for at least one minute.
146
3.To light: Push in the control knob and
turn to full rate - see Fig.2. Hold a lighted
match or taper to the burner and push the
control knob in and hold. It is necessary
to hold the knob depressed after the
burner has ignited or approximately 10-15
seconds, to allow the thermocouple probe
to reach temperature, before releasing the
knob. Should the flame go out when the
knob is released, the procedure should be
repeated holding the knob depressed for
slightly longer.
4.For models fitted with spark ignition the
procedure is similar except that the burner
can be ignited by depressing the ignition
button, which is located on the fascia. If
the burner has not lit within 15 seconds
the control knob should be released and
the burner left for at least 1 minute before
a further attempt to ignite the burner.
5. For simmering, turn the knob further
anti-clockwise to the low rate position.
6.To turn off: Turn the control know until
the line on the control knob is aligned
with the dot on the control panel. Always
make sure the control knob is in the off
position when you have finished using the
hotplate burners.
Important: The two in line hob burners on
this appliance will support pans from 10cm to
20cm. The single hob burner will support pans
from 10cm to 22cm.
Warning: Glass lids may shatter when
heated. Turn off the hotplate and allow it
to cool before closing the glass lid.
Remove all spillage from the surface of the
glass lid before opening.
Using the hotplate
Ensure the electricity is switched on.
The hotplate control is numbered from 1 to 6.
To turn it on, rotate the knob either clockwise
or anti-clockwise to the required position.
Position 1 is the coolest setting. To turn the
hotplate off, rotate the knob until the line or
pointer on the knob lines up with the zero on
the control panel.
The hotplate is a sealed construction and
transfers heat through conduction. For
maximum efficiency a correctly sized pan with
a flat heavy gauge base should be used. Pan
size should be the same or slightly larger (up to
1"/2.5cm oversize).
Before using your hotplate for the first time, we
recommend that you prime and then season it.
To prime the Hotplate
Switch on the hotplate for a short period,
without a pan, to harden and burn off the
coating. Use a medium to high setting for 3 - 5
minutes. A non toxic smoke may occur during
this process. Allow it to cool, then season.
To season the Hotplate
First heat the hotplate for 30 seconds on a
medium setting, then switch off. Pour a minimal
amount of unsalted vegetable oil onto a clean
dry cloth or paper towel, and apply a thin coat
of oil to the hotplate surface. Wipe off any
excess oil, then heat the hotplate on a medium
setting for 1 minute. Occasional seasoning will
help to maintain the Hotplate’s appearance.
Using the grill
Important: The grill must only be used with the
door open. The heat deflector below the fascia
should be pulled out prior to lighting the grill.
Never adjust the heat deflector position
without using hand protection i.e. oven gloves.
1.Ensure gas cylinder/supply is connected
and turned on. In the event of a gas smell
turn off at gas cylinder/mains and contact
supplier.
2.To light: Open door, push in the control
knob and turn to full rate - see Fig 2.
Hold alighted match or taper to the burner
and push the control knob in and hold.
The burner should ignite and the control
knob should be held in for 10-15 seconds
before release. If the burner goes out,
repeat procedure holding control knob for
slightly longer.
3.For models fitted with spark ignition the
procedure is similar except that the burner
can be ignited by depressing the ignition
button, which is located on the fascia.
Ignition must be carried out with the door
open, and if the burner has not lit within
15 seconds the control knob should be
released and the grill left for at least 1
minute before a further attempt to ignite
the burner.
4.On first use of the grill, it should be
heated for about 20 minutes to eliminate
any residual factory lubricants that might
impart unpleasant smells to the food being
cooked. An non-toxic smoke may occur
when using for the first time so open
any windows and turn on mechanical
ventilators to help remove the smoke.
5.Although the grill does heat up quickly, it
is recommended that a few minutes preheat be allowed.
6.Flame Failure Device (FFD): The grill burner
is fitted with a flame sensing probe, which
will automatically cut off the gas supply in
the event of the flame going out. In the
event of the burner flames accidentally
being extinguished, turn off the burner
control and do not attempt to re-ignite
the burner for at least one minute.

Oven temperature control
The temperature in the oven is controlled by
a thermostatic gas tap and is variable over
the range 130ºC to 240ºC. Approximate
temperatures for the settings on the control
knob are shown in the table below. The
temperatures indicated refer to the centre of
the oven and at any particular setting the oven
will be hotter at the top and cooler towards
the base.
The variation between top and centre, and
centre to bottom is approximately equivalent
to one gas mark. Good use can be made of
the temperature variation in several dishes
requiring different temperatures may be
cooked at the same time. In this way maximum
benefit can be obtained from the gas used to
heat the oven. Care should be taken not to
overload the oven, adequate spacing being
used to allow free circulation for heat.
windows to disperse any gas escape. Butane/
Propane gas is heavier than air; any escaping
gas will therefore collect at low level. The
strong unpleasant smell of gas will enable the
general area of the leak to be detected. Check
that the gas is not escaping from an unlighted
appliance. Never check for leaks with a naked
flame, leak investigation should be carried out
using a leak detector spray.

the Waste Holding Tank in such a way
that during emptying you can operate the
vent plunger with your thumb. To empty
the tank without splashing, depress the
vent plunger while emptying the tank.
After emptying, rinse the tank and blade
thoroughly with water.
Warning! Do not seriously shake the tank
or use high pressure water cleaners. This
may cause damage to the tank’s interior.
Note. The vent plunger should only be
depressed once the emptying spout is pointing
downwards. Prepare the toilet for re-use if
required. Slide the Waste Holding Tank into the
toilet and close the access door.
Emptying with optional features
19.Waste Holding Tank Multi-Level Indicator:
The lower lamp indicates that the Waste
Holding Tank is almost empty; the middle
lamp indicates that it is more than half full;
when the upper lamp lights up, the tank
needs emptying as it can only take 2 - 3
further uses.
Note. The Waste Holding Tank Level Indicator
will flash when the holding tank is not present.
In this case the toilet will not flush.
20.Waste Pump-Out System: When
activating the control panel this feature
automatically lights up. When the Waste
Holding Tank Level Indicator illuminates,
press the Waste Pump-Out button to
pump out the waste from the holding

5.Remove the cap, with the measuring
cup inside, from the emptying spout
and pour the correct dosage of Thetford
toilet fluid (see product label) into the
holding tank. This avoids unpleasant smells
and keeps the inside of the tank clean.
Next add approximately 2 litres of water
- enough to ensure that the bottom of the
Waste Holding Tank is covered. For more
information on Thetford toilet fluids, see
last page of the Thetford user manual.
Screw the cap back onto the emptying
spout and turn back to its original position.
If the vehicle’s waste tank is full, the Waste
Pump-Out light will flash rapidly and no
pump-out will be possible until the central
tank is emptied. (Check the level of the
vehicle’s waste tank on the vehicle’s central
console). After the Waste Holding Tank has
been emptied, there will be approximately
1.5 litres of waste left in the tank. This is
normal. Add 2 litres of water and a correct
dosage of Thetford toilet fluids to the
Waste Holding Tank.
Important! It is vital that the correct
amount of toilet fluid is added to ensure
the proper breakdown of the waste in the
holding tank. Only use the system when
the tank is full. Using the system too often
on an empty tank can cause damage to
the pump, which could cause the system
to fail.
Cleaning and maintenance
The toilet should be cleaned and maintained
regularly, depending on the amount of use. To
clean Thetford toilets, we advise using water
and Thetford Bathroom Cleaner.
Note. Never use bleach, vinegar or other
powerful household cleaners that contain
these substances. These may cause permanent
damage to the seals and other toilet
components.

Tip! For a really shining toilet, dry with a soft
dry cloth after cleaning.
Waste Holding Tank
To keep your Waste Holding Tank fresh and
clean, Thetford has developed a number of
different toilet fluids. Thetford toilet fluids
suppress smells, reduce formation of gas,
promote breakdown of toilet waste and
increase the life span of a mobile toilet. See
page 46 of the Thetford user manual for more
information (=matrix). We advise a thorough
cleaning of the Waste Holding Tank once each
season. Next to using Thetford’s Cassette Tank
Cleaner, the powerful cleaning agent for the
periodical cleaning of the Waste Holding Tank
of your toilet, we suggest the following:
• R
emove the removable mechanism from
the Waste Holding Tank by turning it anticlockwise and rinse it under a tap.
• R
emove the cover plate from the
Automatic Pressure Release Vent by prising
it up using a small screwdriver. Use one
hand to push the Automatic Pressure
Release Vent open while holding the float
of the Automatic Pressure Release Vent
on the inside of the tank with the other
hand. Push the float upwards, turn it
180 degrees and remove it from below.
Remove the rubber seal underneath the
float. Rinse the float and rubber seal under
a tap. Replace the Pressure Release Vent
using the same method in reverse.
162
The rubber seals in the toilet (the lip seal, the
mechanism seal, the automatic pressure release
vent seal and the cap seal) should be regularly
cleaned with water and treated with
Thetford High Grade Seal Lubricant. This
will ensure that the seals remain flexible and
in good condition. If the toilet is not to be
used for any length of time, it is important to
treat the seals with Thetford High Grade Seal
Lubricant after cleaning.
Note. Never use Vaseline or any vegetable
oil except olive oil. These may cause leakage
or malfunction. The lip seal is a part of the
toilet that is subject to wear. Depending upon
the extent and manner of use, the seals will
become less effective and will need replacing
periodically.
Cleaning and maintenance for

the Automatic Ventilation needs to be
renewed periodically. After approximately
4 full weeks of use, the filter loses its
absorption power.
• P ump-Out Waste System: To ensure
optimal functionality of the Pump-Out
Waste System, periodical maintenance
of the tube and pump is recommended.
After emptying the Waste Holding Tank
completely, fill it with clean water and
empty it again. This will clean the pump
and the hose. Do this once every 3 weeks
when on holiday. This should ensure
proper operation of the system.

flush button until water stops flowing into
the bowl. Close the blade. Open the access
door on the outside of your caravan or
camper and empty the Waste Holding Tank
at an authorised waste dump. Follow the
instructions for cleaning and maintenance.
To allow the Waste Holding Tank to dry, do
not place the cap back on the emptying
spout of the tank.
21. If the toilet has its own flush-water tank,
place a sufficiently large bowl under the
drain tube to catch the remaining water
from the flush-water tank and remove the
drain plug. When no more water exits,
put the drain plug on the drain tube, put
it back in its original position and close
the access door. If the toilet is connected
to the vehicle’s water tank, please follow
your vehicle’s instructions for draining
the central water system. If your toilet is
optionally featured with a Waste PumpOut System, take out the Waste Holding
Tank and completely clean it (see Cleaning
and Maintenance). After cleaning, fill it
with water, put it back and empty it via the
waste pump-out system. Repeat this twice.

usage Guidelines
Remedy
Check the points covered in Fault Finding.
In some instances, this type of interference
can be overcome by switching off the
relevant appliances.
1. Weak TV Signal
This produces a ‘Snowy’ picture which can
be caused if you are too far away from the
TV transmitter, such as in a remote area,
positioned in a valley, or if there is a building,
hill or other obstruction blocking the signal.
e quip me nt de ta ils
e quipme nt de ta il s
status 530 ANTENNA
Each TV transmitter has a defined service area
where reception will be good. Beyond that
boundary is a ‘fringe’ area where the TV signal
will be weaker and the reception quality poorer.
Remedy
Firstly determine whether you are in a poor
reception area. Secondly check the points
covered in Fault Finding.
2. TV Signal too strong
This can produce severe picture distortion like a
zig-zag style pattern. This can be caused when
you are too close to a transmitter or picking up
strong radio transmissions from another source
such as CB radio. Also electrical interference can
cause similar effects (see Interference 4 below).
Remedy
Turn the gain control switch on the Power Pack
to ‘La’. Secondly check the points covered in
Fault Finding.
3. Ghosting
This is when the TV signal is reflected from
something in your locality. The ‘something’
may be a local building or landmark. Your
antenna is receiving both the direct signal and
the reflected signal from the same transmitter.
Remedy
Try to move to a better position away from
the obstruction. Unfortunately it may not
always be possible to isolate Omni-Directional
antennas from the cause of the problem.
4. Electrical Interference
This type of interference is commonly caused
by electrical appliances, such as fans, electric
shavers, fluorescent lights.
Other forms of interference can produce
a zig-zag pattern similar to that described
168
Fault finding
The following are some of the key areas we
suggest you check which generally solve the
most common problems encountered with the
operation of the Status antenna.
169
Coaxial Plugs
It is critical that all coaxial plugs in the system
are fitted correctly. Using the diagram and
procedure described, please check each
individual plug, ensuring it is wired correctly.
Secondly please ensure only quality plugs have
been used.
Coaxial Cable
Sharp bends, kinks and hot surfaces can
easily damage coaxial cable and should be
avoided. An inspection of the cable routing
is recommended to ensure all is correct
Coaxial cable, if placed in close proximity
to electrical cables, transformers or other
pieces of electrical equipment, may pick up
electrical interference causing picture quality to
deteriorate, especially in poor reception areas.
Excess cable should be removed and NOT
coiled as this may cause picture distortion.
Ensure the antenna dome is plugged directly
into the ‘ANT-IN’ socket of the Power Pack and
switch on. Tune in your TV for the strongest
signal. If the picture quality is improved the fault
lies with the wiring of the system between the
Power Pack and the TV outlet socket
Antenna Dome Coaxial Cable
Check the routing of the coaxial cable from the
Antenna Dome to the Power Pack. Check to
ensure there are no kinks or trapped cable or if
there are loops of surplus cable which could be
affecting performance.
When the Antenna Dome was originally fitted
and lowered onto the Mounting Foot, cable
may have been trapped or kinked under the
Mounting Foot To check, remove the Antenna
Dome as described to see if this has occurred.

Interference 2 below)
Red LED light
Should the red LED on the Power Pack not
light, first try unplugging the cable connected
to the Antenna Dome from the ‘ANT-IN’ socket
If the LED then illuminates the fault lies with
either the coaxial plug or the coaxial cable,
please refer to these areas described earlier.
If the LED is still not lit, please contact our
office for further assistance.

This is probably an opportune moment to
arrange for the Motorhome to have its annual
service at your appointed dealer.
The following applies whenever your
Motorhome is stored particularly during the
winter months.
Do not park near trees or larch type fences,
due to possible wind damage.
Keep any grass around the floor of the
Motorhome short, to maintain air flow and
stop any possible damp getting into the
Caravan or Motorhome.
It is advised that the Motorhome is ventilated
regularly throughout the winterisation /storage
period, opening windows, doors and rooflights
when possible.
General
For care of the vehicle battery please
refer to the Peugeot handbook in section
‘Trouble Shooting’.
All moving parts should be checked for
free operation.
Clean all cooking appliances and refrigerator.
Lubrication should be carried out at the
points illustrated in the general notes on
chassis maintenance.
Charge up the on-board battery every 2 months.
Paintwork
The exterior of your coach built motor home is
finished with glass reinforced plastic (GRP) sheet
that is very durable and easy to clean owing
to its smooth finish. If cared for properly, the
GRP will retain its showroom finish. Proper care
involves washing the motorhome regularly with
a mild detergent rinsing with cold water and
leathering off. A good quality, similar coloured
car wax may also be applied which will make
washing even easier.
Please note: Do not use abrasive cleaning
agents, on the exterior of your motorhome.
Stubborn stains may be removed using a soft
cloth and mild detergent.
WARNING: Overzealous use of detergents
may loosen the decals and/or badges.
Mouldings
All mouldings are anodised aluminium and will
retain their lustre for a long period if no abrasive
materials are used on them. If your motor home
is subject to constant changes in temperature,
mastic may seep from the joints between the
mouldings. Excess mastic that appears can be
removed by wiping with a soft cloth.
Leave the refrigerator door open. Leave
furniture doors and lockers open to allow air to
circulate fully.
Acrylic Windows
The windows in your motorhome are fully
double glazed and, with care, will remain
sparkling and scratch free.
Modifications - DIY work
Owners need to be aware that carrying out DIY
modifications to your caravan or motorhome
may in certain instances, invalidate the
warranty cover and could also affect the safety
and structure of the vehicle.
Keeping Your Acrylic Windows Sparkling
For small scratches, it is possible to use a liquid
metal polish or a proprietary acrylic polish of
a suitable grade dependant on the severity of
the scratches.
WD40 IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR
EXTERNAL OR INTERNAL USE
WD40 attacks paintwork and sealants. If a
lubricant is required for Interior hinges, Sliding
door tracks, Bottle box hinges, Exterior door
hinges, Plastic tracking etc. We recommend

Cleaning Windows
Wash down as you would your car. Do not use
a sponge on dirty windows. When all the dirt
has been removed, dry with a leather or similar
type of cloth. The catches and stays do not
require lubricating.
Removing Tar
Use a proprietary tar remover on your double

cooking, or drying damp clothes, and
particularly when the windows show signs
of misting up.
CONDENSATION
What is condensation?
Condensation is the change of water from
its gaseous form (water vapour) into liquid
water. Condensation generally occurs in the
atmosphere when warm air rises, cools and
looses its capacity to hold water vapour. As
a result, excess water vapour condenses to
form droplets.
b)If there is no mains electric supply and
therefore you cannot use the electrical
element of the space heater, open the
skylights or windows slightly, but keep the
door closed as much as possible.
Why condensation occurs
Condensation occurs when warm moist air
meets a cold surface. The risk of condensation
therefore depends upon how moist the air
is and how cold the surfaces of the vehicle
are. Both of these depend to some extent
on how the vehicle is used. In a Caravan or
Motorhome with a cold outside wall, if the
temperature of the wall falls below the dew
point temperature, it is quite normal for
condensation to occur predominantly on the
external walls.
d)In all other areas provide some ventilation.
Fixed ventilation is provided in accordance
with BS EN 721: 1998 this is through
skylights and ‘heki roof lights’ in the roofs
and from ventilators through the floor
under cookers, motorhome step well,
doors and in bed boxes it is important not
to block these.
When condensation occurs
Condensation occurs usually in winter, because
the Caravan or Motorhome is cold and because
skylights, windows and doors are opened less
and therefore the moist air cannot escape.
How condensation occurs
Condensation occurs often for short periods
in bathroom and kitchen areas because of
the steamy atmosphere, and quite frequently
for long periods in unheated areas; it also
occurs in cupboards or corners of rooms where
ventilation and movement of air is restricted.
What is important
Two things are particularly important:
-To provide ventilation so that moist air
can escape.
-
To use the heating reasonably.
How can you prevent condensation
Provide ventilation so that moist air can escape.
a) G
ood ventilation of kitchens when
washing, cooking or drying damp clothes
mo torhome ca re
mot orhome c a re
Winterisation/Storage
c)After showering, keep the bathroom
window or skylights open, and shut the
bathroom door long enough to dry off
the room.
Too much ventilation in cold weather is
uncomfortable and wastes heat. All that is
needed is a very slightly opened window
or skylights. Opening a skylight or ‘Heki;
rooflights partially or windows opened
to about 1cm opening will usually be
sufficient.
Provide reasonable heating
a) D
o not use portable paraffin or flueless gas
heaters at all.
b)If drying damp clothes or towels, open a
window enough to ventilate the area
and turn on the electric element of the
space heater but do not hang items over
the heater.
c)Try to make sure that all areas are at least
partially heated. Condensation most often
occurs in unheated areas.
d)To prevent condensation, the heat has to
keep room surfaces reasonably warm. It
can take a long time for a cold caravan or
Motorhome to warm up, so it is better to
have a small amount of heat for a long
period than a lot of heat for a short time.
e)Caravans and Motorhomes are left
175
mot orhome c a re
f)In houses, the rooms above a heated
room benefit to some extent from heat
rising through the floor. In Caravans and
Motorhomes this does not happen.
Caravans and Motorhomes use only carefully
selected insulation materials but unlike most
rooms at home they have all outside walls, so
they lose heat through all walls as well as the
roof and floor.
Even in a well insulated Caravan or motorhome
with reasonable ventilation it is likely during
cold weather if the temperature is less than
10°C that condensation will occur. Ideally
the temperature should be kept about 20°C
although this is not always possible.
Mould growth
Any sign of mould growth is an indication
of the presence of moisture and if caused by
condensation gives warning that heating or
ventilation, may require improving.
New vehicles
New Caravans and Motorhomes often take
a long time before they are fully ‘dried out’
because of moisture in the materials used in
the manufacture. While this is happening they
need extra heat and ventilation. At least during
the first winter trips and may require more
heat than they will need in subsequent winters
journeys. Allowance should be made for this.
WARNING: Do not wash your Caravan or
Motorhome with a high pressure washer as
these can permanently damage the seals of
your vehicle.
Changing Exterior Bulbs
ALWAYS REPLACE LIKE FOR LIKE
For individual replacement bulb specification,
refer to your Specification Handbook.
Generally road lighting bulbs can be easily
replaced by unscrewing and removing the
lens from the exterior of the caravan
or motorhome.
176
INTERIOR
Follow these guidelines to ensure your
investment is receiving the very best attention.
Side Walls, Roof Lining
A simple wipe over with a damp cloth and a
very mild detergent is all that is needed.
Soft Furnishings
Should be vacuumed occasionally to
remove grit and sand and help to keep
its smart appearance and ensure long
life. The upholstery can be cleaned with
a mild, reputable upholstery cleaner. It is
recommended that the curtains and pelmets
are specialist cleaned only. The foam used
in cushions are manufactured to meet fire
regulations. It requires time to return to its
normal position after prolonged use.
Clean and dust the upholstery and if possible
remove before placing the Motorhome into
winter storage. Alternatively, stand the cushions
on their edges to allow circulation of air. This
will reduce the possibility of dampness from
condensation. Keep curtains or blinds closed,
to minimise fading of furniture.
If the blinds and/or flyscreens remain down for
a prolonged period of time, re-tensioning of
the springs will be necessary before re-use.
Work Surfaces
You should not stand very hot items on any of
the work surfaces.
Cupboard Catches
It is advisable to lightly oil all cupboard catches,
sliding bolts and hinges from time to time.
Bathroom, Shower Room and
Kitchen Equipment
All the Thermoplastic parts in these areas have
easy clean surfaces. To ensure long life and
prevent damage you must not use any cleaning
materials at all and ensure water temperatures
do not exceed 70°C, (putting cold water in first
is suggested). After every use, it is essential
that you rinse with clean water only and wipe
with a soft damp cloth.
Failure to follow these simple instructions
may result in premature failure or cracking
which will not be covered by any guarantees
(including extended warranties).
Furniture
A simple wipe over with a damp cloth should
be all that is required. Polishing with a
proprietary brand of wax polish enhances and
maintains furniture in showroom condition.
It must be remembered that because the
frames of some doors are made of ash, which
is a natural product, they can be affected by
temperature and humidity and may bow under
certain conditions. As conditions change they
should revert to their original positions.
Kitchen Drainer and Cutting Board
You should not stand hot items on to these
items. To wash use only warm soapy water, do
not use chemicals and bleach.
Changing Interior Bulbs
Remove the lens or lamp shade to access
the bulb.
ALWAYS REPLACE LIKE FOR LIKE
For individual replacement bulb specification,
refer to your Specification Handbook.
Wheels and Tyres
Do not store in one position with partially
deflated tyres. The tyre walls will suffer and do
present a real danger of blow outs, especially
when travelling at faster speeds than are
allowed in the UK.
The wheels should be turned every couple of
weeks. If you are removing the wheels, follow
the jacking procedure for changing a wheel.
Check your tyres regularly for signs of age
and deterioration, particularly wear, cracking
and blistering. If in doubt consult a reputable
tyre fitter.
Water System
Remove chopping board from bowl. All taps
should be opened. Single lever mixer taps,
including the shower mixer, should have the
lever moved to the central position and lifted
to the open position for hot and cold.
Drain water heater: Open yellow handle on
in line valve normally adjacent to water heater.
Valve is open when handle is vertical.
Drain water tanks:
Starburst: Open the drain valve situated next
to the fresh water tank, behind the swing out
kitchen unit.
Stardream: Open the drain valve situated
under the offside bed bunk next to the fresh
water tank.
All other vans: Open the drain valve situated
under the offside skirt adjacent to the fresh
water tank.
Waste tank: Open in line valve adjacent to the
tank. Valve is open when handle is in line with
body of valve.
mo torhome ca re
unoccupied and unheated and can get
very cold. Whenever possible, it is best to
put the heating on at a low level before
setting off on a journey in the winter to
pre heat the vehicle.
With valves and switches set as previously
described to run taps from the fresh water
tank, the pump can be run momentarily to
assist purging the water tank and pipes.
Remove shower head. Let the shower hose
drain into the shower tray and then return
to holder.
The Motorhome may be left in this
condition over winter or until ready to use.
It is recommended to leave the drain taps
in an open position during storage. Before
recommissioning the system, reverse all
above actions.
Before recommissioning the system, reverse all
above actions.
The Thetford Cassette toilet is easily winterised
for storage.
Empty remaining fresh water into the bowl by
activating the flush handle up and down or by
pressing the flush button (model dependant).
Once pump has been cleared and water flow
has stopped completely, release into waste
tank. Remove waste tank and empty contents
in normal way.
To evacuate any remaining water from the
fresh water tank, place a container underneath
the drainplug and remove drainplug.
When the procedure has been completed
replace drainplug and waste holding tank.
Clean the seals and grease them if necessary
after drying, with acid free Vaseline.
Leave the blade of the holding tank open.
Do not replace cap on the pour out spout, to
ventilate the holding tank.
Recommissioning the Water System
Fill the fresh water tank on the Thetford
177
mot orhome c a re
Cassette porta potti (model specific) using a
hose or jerrycan until the water in the funnel
reaches the neck. Tank capacity is 15 litres.
Aqua Rinse may be added to improve cleaning
of bowl and flushing of unit.
Replace cap. Swing back the water fill funnel
until it touches the water tank.
Add Aqua Kem (100 ml) into the Cassette (or
120 ml if using Aqua Kem Bio) through the
pour out spout. Add small amount of water
through the pour out spout and replace the
cap. Close the cold taps and ensure all the
drain taps are closed.
It is advisable after storage to flush the water
system initially with a sterilising agent (such as
Milton), and then with water repeating until
the system is well flushed through.
Connect the pump.
Fill the system with water until water flows
freely from the hot taps. About 2 gallons of
water will be required. Close the hot taps.
Appliances
Before starting motor caravanning after storage,
check all gas appliances and electrical points.
Note: Preferably not less than once a year, the
electrical installation should be inspected and
tested by a qualified electrician.
After storage it is advisable to air the
Motorhome and clean throughout, especially
cooking appliances and the refrigerator.
Replace the bedding if they were removed
for storage.
Important: Always follow the
manufacturers recommended procedures
after use of fitted equipment in the
Motorhome, before storing for any length
of time.
CHASSIS AND REAR AXLE
Some models are built on Peugeot Boxter
base vehicles, the chassis of which has
been converted by AL-KO. This conversion
provides a hot dipped galvanised steel chassis
coupled with a wide track rear axle utilising
steel torsion bar suspension, imparting vastly
improved stability and road holding.
178
AL-KO EXHAUST SYSTEM
A standard Peugeot exhaust system is fitted,
utilising an AL-KO modified tail pipe, available
through your approved dealer.
A standard Fiat exhaust system is fitted to
all other models, with the addition of a
Autocruise tail pipe.
CARING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
After many years of service you may decide
that your motorhome has become beyond
economic repair and should be disposed of.
Please ensure that you comply with the end
of life vehicle legislation and take it to an
authorised treatment facility where it will be
properly dealt with to minimise any negative
environmental impact. The transaction will be
logged at the DVLA, identifying that you are
no longer the owner of the vehicle.
