Introduction

Auto-Trail welcomes you to the ranks of

Auto-Trail owners.

This handbook has been designed to enable you to derive the maximum benefit and enjoyment from your motorhome; its information will be beneficial to experienced and new motorhomers alike.

6

Thank you for deciding to buy one of our motorhomes and welcome to the ranks of

Auto-Trail owners.

This handbook has been designed to enable you to derive the maximum benefit from your motorhome; it’s information will be beneficial to both experienced and new motorhomers alike.

The information contained in this handbook is intended to give you a general guide as to the care, use and maintenance of your vehicle. www.auto-trail.co.uk

We would advise you to read all of the individual appliance instructions that will be found in the information wallet supplied with your vehicle prior to using them for the first time.

Your motorhome is designed to give many years of use as a leisure purpose vehicle and not as a permanent residence. Regular maintenance however will not only ensure trouble free service, but will also enhance your vehicles value.

11404 - AT Apache - Tracker Owners Handbook V1 REPRO_Layout 1 13/10/2015 11:17 Page 7

Introduction

Owners Handbook :

Your supplying dealer is responsible for all aspects of your customer care. We would suggest that you make a note of the dealers name and contact information in the dedicated space in the front of this handbook as this would speed up the process of answering any queries you may have. Should you require assistance, your supplying dealer is fully conversant with the correct procedures that should be followed to get any issues resolved in a timely manner.

For total piece of mind all Auto-Trail vehicles are supplied with a comprehensive warranty for vehicles registered in the UK and Northern Ireland. Please ensure that your supplying dealer has fully explained all aspects of the terms and conditions of your vehicle warranty and the necessary servicing requirements.

Your vehicle should be supplied with two vehicle handbooks, the habitation handbook and the base vehicle handbook. Please refer to the base vehicle handbook for matters relating to the motorhome as a road going vehicle (e.g. lubricant levels, service intervals etc…).

Notes on private exporting of vehicles

Auto Trail Motorhomes are designed and manufactured to operate in a specific country or region and therefore it is imperative that when purchasing a new vehicle, the buyer should be completely aware of the design and operating parameters of the product. Vehicles purchased in the UK are not only built to the necessary European

Directives and Standards (e.g. ECWVTA – Type approval), but also are equipped with components that are designed to operate in a typical European temperate climate.

Should a customer choose to export a registered vehicle from the UK, or purchase a vehicle from a nonaligned dealership outside the UK, it is their responsibility to ensure that any required modifications have been completed to the correct standard, and that the vehicle complies with all legislation of the country in which the vehicle is to be registered. Any equipment that is operated in a country that it is not designed for will either not perform correctly and could possibly fail. This equipment may also not be covered by the appliance manufacturer’s warranty.

Similarly, Auto-trail vehicles are designed to be used on normal tarmacadam roads, with occasional off road campsite use. Should a vehicle be used outside of these conditions, the vehicle could suffer undue load, stress and ingress of debris and therefore

Auto-trail will not be held liable for any such failure and as a result any applicable warranty will be void.

Modifications To Your Vehicle

Please check with your supplying dealer before carrying out any modifications to your vehicle.

Any unauthorised modifications carried out by a third party could effect the terms of your warranty agreement.

We would always advise that you consult your dealer before any additional equipment is fitted to your vehicle to ensure the appropriate fixing support is available.

Never allow modifications of electrical or LPG systems and appliances except by qualified persons.

Care should be taken to ensure that any additional equipment or appliances are installed with the appliance / equipment manufacturer’s instructions.

Appliance Maintenance

In the interest of safety, replacement parts for an appliance shall conform to the appliance manufacturers specifications, and should be fitted by him or his authorised agent.

Preparing for the Road

8

Loading Your Vehicle

All models manufactured by Auto-Trail are of a well balanced design, the most common causes of poor stability include:

• Poor weight distribution of the weight inside the vehicle.

• Incorrect tyre pressure (always adhere to the tyre pressures stated in the chassis manufacturers handbook. Always inflate to the ‘fully laden’ condition).

Try to load heavy items down near the floor of the vehicle, between the axles and as evenly as possible side to side.

We would recommend that the table is stored on the floor between the beds if there is no dedicated storage position.

Where a dedicated storage position is available, the table should be retained in this position whilst the vehicle is in motion.

Roof Rack (If Fitted)

Please be advised that the maximum recommended weight that should be carried on the roof rack is 40kg.

Please be aware that in certain conditions the fibreglass roof may become very slippery, please take extreme care should you choose to walk on the vehicle roof.

Bicycle Carrier (If Fitted)

Auto-Trail recommends that if a bicycle carrier is fitted to your vehicle it should be capable of carrying no more than two cycles.

The Frontier model is designed to accept a specific model of cycle carrier details of which are available through your supplying dealer.

Never exceed the maximum authorised weight that should be specified on the carrier.

Tow Bars

Auto-Trail only recommends the fitting of bespoke Witter tow-bars to our vehicles

(where applicable). These are the only tow-bars that Auto-Trail have tested and obtained European Type Approval for.

Should you choose to fit any other tow-bar it is your responsibility to ensure that you do not contravene any road traffic regulations.

Driving Your Motorhome

Pulling Away

When pulling away in your Motorhome always operate the clutch smoothly, change gears smoothly and try not to jerk the clutch.

Motorhome Handling

Please remember that your Motorhome is much larger than a standard motor car when carrying out any manoeuvres.

• Allow longer to speed up when overtaking.

• Do not swing out suddenly.

• Carry out all manoeuvres as smoothly as possible.

• Use the nearside wing mirror to check

Motorhome has cleared obstacle when overtaking.

• Do not bump the kerbs with the

Motorhome wheels.

• Reduce speed accordingly in strong winds, going downhill or in poor visibility.

• Large high speed vehicles cause air buffeting, extra care must be taken when passing or being passed by a high sided vehicle.

Reversing

Proficiency at reversing can only be achieved with practice and we would recommend that you should first practice in a large open area.

As well as this courses are run by many organisations.

Reversing Aid

Your vehicle may be fitted with a visual reversing aid. This aid is designed to assist a drivers attention only during reversing of the vehicle, they are not intended to replace a drivers self judgement. Auto-Trail will not accept any responsibility for any accident caused by a drivers negligence.

Changing A Wheel

• Ensure handbrake is fully applied and use wheel chocks if necessary to ensure the vehicle cannot move.

• Remove the wheel trims (if fitted). Use the wheel-brace to slacken off wheel nuts on the wheel to be changed.

• Position the jack under the axle or at the appropriate jacking point.

• Jack up the vehicle until the wheel to be changed is just off the ground.

• Remove the wheel nuts and wheel.

• Fit the spare wheel and reverse the above procedure.

• Tighten all nuts equally.

Selecting A Pitch

Owners Handbook :

Alloy Wheels / Tyre Valves

It is vitally important that when you get replacement tyres fitted to your vehicle the valves that are used are capable of withstanding the high pressures associated with Motorhome tyres.

Usually only ‘bolt through’ steel type valves can withstand the high pressures associated with

Motorhome tyres.

Driving Abroad

Please ensure that you are familiar with the relevant laws and regulations that apply in the countries in which you choose to travel.

Different mainland European countries have different laws and regulations and it is your responsibility to ensure that your vehicle complies with this regulations and that you drive within the law.

Vehicles fitted with Comfort - Matic gearbox

If the vehicle is at a standstill and a gear is engaged, keep the brake pedal pressed until you decide to set off. Then release the brake and accelerate gradually.

To safeguard clutch efficiency, do not use the accelerator to keep the vehicle at a standstill

(e.g: parking on a hill); the clutch could be damaged by overheating. Use the brake pedal instead and operate the accelerator only when you are ready to set off.

During hill starts, accelerate gradually but fully after releasing the handbrake or brake pedal to allow the engine to increase its rpm to greater extent and overcome the higher gradients with more torque.

For more information on the Comfort – Matic gearbox please refer to the handbook supplied with your base vehicle.

Selecting A Pitch

Do not pitch in a position in which your vehicle will obstruct others coming in.

Try to choose an area that is dry, reasonably level and preferably with a hard base. If you have no alternative but to pitch on a slope, ensure that when you leave you are driving down the slope.

It is always good practice to chock the wheels of the Motorhome when parked on a slope or a slippery surface even when the brakes are applied.

In poor site conditions you are advised to try to keep engine revs as low as possible to try to avoid wheel spin and try to steer as straight as possible.

Levelling The Motorhome

Levelling of the Motorhome on your chosen pitch must be carried out in both directions for the refrigerator and other equipment to function correctly.

Levelling the Motorhome should be carried out using proprietary levelling ramps, or boards.

Rear Corner Steadies

Your vehicle may be fitted with rear corner steadies which are used for stabilising your Motorhome when stationary. These steadies should never be used to lift the rear wheels off the ground, or as a jack.

Operation

Lower the corner steadies using the special brace supplied until they are in firm contact with the ground.

Levelling pads or boards should be used when the ground is soft or uneven.

In extreme cases where it is necessary to raise a wheel off the ground for levelling purposes,further support should be applied so that the corner steadies do not take undue strain.

Please note that under no circumstances should the corner steadies be used to jack up the rear of the vehicle. Use a proprietary bottle jack or scissor jack that is capable of holding the weight of your fully loaded Motorhome.

11404 - AT Apache - Tracker Owners Handbook V1 REPRO_Layout 1 13/10/2015 11:18 Page 14

Gas Services

14

The gas appliances in your vehicle are fed from a gas cylinder that is housed in a sealed cylinder compartment.

Gas flows from the gas bottles via a bulkhead mounted gas regulator. This regulator provides a working gas pressure of 30 m bar (1.5kg of gas per hour).

All appliances installed by Auto-Trail are designed to work within this pressure range.

Please ensure that any additional appliances, not fitted by Auto-Trail, are capable of working within this pressure.

Cylinder Compartment

Your vehicle is designed to accept either 15kg or 7kg gas cylinders, this is dependent on the model you have chosen.

The compartment is accessed via a door on the outside of the vehicle.

This door is secured by a remote cable release latch located behind the passenger seat inside the vehicle.

The Compartment has low level ventilation to ensure the safe operation of the cylinders and should not be obstructed in any way.

Also please ensure that any additional items stored in this compartment are secure and cannot damage any pipe work or fittings, or block the ventilation.

Connecting / Changing A Gas Cylinder

Before you can connect a gas cylinder to your of high pressure hose for the type of bottle you have chosen (different European countries be fitted to the bulkhead mounted gas regulator fitted inside your gas compartment.

before changing gas cylinders

• Carefully position the gas cylinders into the gas compartment locating the bottle into the retaining devices taking care not to damage any of the pipe work or fittings.

• Tighten the straps that will hold the cylinders firmly into the compartment.

• Connect the high pressure hose to the gas cylinder using a suitable tool. Please ensure that the high pressure hose is connected correctly before opening the cylinder valve.

• Close the empty cylinder valve

Gas Hoses

Your supplying dealer will advise on the correct cylinder to the pressure regulator.

This will depend on the type of gas cylinders you have chosen to carry in your vehicle.

Inspect flexible hoses regularly for deterioration and renew, as necessary with an approved type, in any case not later than the expiry date shown on the hose.

Any hose that shows signs of damage or splitting should be replaced immediately irrespective of its age.

Gas Services

Owners Handbook :

Gas Safety Valves

Gas flows from the gas cylinder via a bulkhead that supply each individual appliance in the vehicle.

The valves allow isolation of a single appliance without affecting the operation of other equipment.

Each valve has a symbol fixed to it that indicates which appliance it is supplying.

The location of the isolation valves varies from model may have two individual sets of valves.

Please familiarise yourself with the location of these valves before using your vehicle for the first time.

Precautions - If a gas leak is suspected

• Turn off the gas supply at the cylinder using the isolation valve on top of the gas bottle.

• Never search using a match.

to escape.

• LPG has been given a smell by the manufacturers the gas is not escaping from an unlit appliance.

• Do not operate any electrical apparatus, especially light switches.

• If the leak is not obvious the Motorhome should be evacuated and qualified personnel consulted.

• Remember that gas is heavier than air and therefore sinks to the lowest point.

• Keep bottled gas containers outside and protect

Externally Sited Cylinders

You are advised that gas cylinders should not be never be extended to accommodate this. Hose lengths should be no more than 400mm

(+50mm / -100mm).

If gas bottles are to be removed for a long period of time then care should be taken to ensure that debris cannot enter the gas system via the open pipe work.

En Route LPG heating

Your motorhome may be fitted with a special gas regulator and an ‘en route’ LPG heating system.

Electrical Services

16

All Auto-Trail vehicles have both a 12V and

230V electrical system.

The 12V electrical system is supplied by a rechargeable leisure battery that is located in a dedicated battery compartment within the vehicle (locations of leisure batteries varies from model to model so please familiarise yourself with your battery location prior to using the vehicle for the first time).

The leisure battery is charged either by the vehicle alternator when the engine is running, or by the on board battery charger when the vehicle is connected to a suitable mains supply via the hook-up lead supplied with the vehicle.

Connection the mains supply also activates the 230V sockets as well as various mains appliances.

All Auto-Trail vehicles utilise a combined power supply unit (PSU) that contains the battery charger, 12V fuses, mains RCD (residual circuit breaker) and MCB’s (miniature circuit breakers).

Please familiarise yourself with the location of the PSU unit prior to using the vehicle for the first time (individual specifications of PSU units will be described in more detail later in this section).

Connecting The Vehicle To A Mains Supply

Your Auto-Trail vehicle is supplied with an orange mains hook-up cable that will connect your Motorhome to a suitable power supply on site via the mains hook-up point on your Motorhome.

www.auto-trail.co.uk

Mains hook-up points vary from model to model so please familiarise yourself with your particular location prior to using your vehicle for the first time.

Your Motorhome should only be connected to a supply that meets the requirements of BS7671.

The site warden will hold information regarding the suitability of supply.

• Locate the charger power switch on the PSU unit and switch to the ‘OFF’ position before connecting the mains supply.

• Connect the supplied hook-up cable (orange cable with blue connectors) to the Motorhome and then connect to the mains supply.

• Check the RCD operation by ensuring that the

RCD is switched ‘ON’ (lever in up position).

Press the ‘TEST’ button and confirm that the

RCD is turned off (lever in ‘DOWN’ position).

• Switch the RCD back into the ‘ON’ position

(lever in ‘UP’ position). If the button failed to operate the RCD seek professional advice from a qualified electrician.

• Check the polarity of the mains supply by locating the Reverse Polarity indicator and ensure that the indicator is not illuminated.

If the indicator is illuminated seek advice from a professional electrician.

• Locate the MCB’s within the PSU (adjacent to the RCD) and ensure they are all in the

‘ON/UP’ position. If any MCB’s cannot be reset this could indicate a fault or an overloaded circuit.

11404 - AT Apache - Tracker Owners Handbook V1 REPRO_Layout 1 13/10/2015 11:18 Page 17

Electrical Services

Owners Handbook :

• Locate the power switch on the PSU and turn to the ‘ON’ position. The switch will illuminate when turned on.

It is now safe to check the operation of the 12V and 230V equipment.

Overseas Connections

Connection to mains voltage overseas requires particular attention. Electricity supplies abroad may be of reverse polarity. The significance of this is that when an appliance is switched off, it may not be electrically isolated.

It is useful to check the polarity of the supply so that the connection can be made neutral to neutral and live to live as recommended. Your Auto-Trail, however, is fitted with a double pole circuit breaker.

Check that all Motorhome equipment is set to accept the site supply prior to switching it on.

Please note that if too many appliances are in operation at one time, the MCB may trip. This is a safety measure. On some sites, the power is not sufficient to power all appliances. If in doubt, consult the site manager or warden.

PSU Courtesy Light

The cupboard in which the PSU is situated is equipped with a courtesy light that is activated when the cupboard door is opened. This light is supplied by the on board leisure battery of the vehicle when stationary. Should a fault occur on this circuit and the light fail, starting the engine will reconnect the light to the vehicle battery circuit to allow fuses and circuit breakers to be checked etc.

Please ensure the battery is located safely and securely before driving your Motorhome.

Any replacement auxiliary battery shall be of the same type and specification as that originally fitted by the manufacturer.

www.auto-trail.co.uk

EC500 PSU (Power Supply Unit)

Overview

The EC500 Power Supply Unit utilises a battery charger that supplies 12 volt DC power to run the leisure equipment and supply the leisure battery.

It also houses the 12 volt DC fuses that protect the various 12 volt circuits, and the 230 volt RCD and MCB’s that protect the various mains circuits.

Residual Current Device & Miniature

Circuit Breakers

The Residual Current Device is provided to protect the user from a potentially lethal electric shock. The RCD will turn off (trip) if a fault occurs on the system. To ensure the RCD is working correctly, the test button should be operated each time the vehicle is connected to the mains supply.

The Miniature circuit breakers (MCB’s) operate in a similar way to traditional fuses and are provided to protect the wiring from an overload or short circuit. If an overload occurs the MCB will switch off the supply. If this occurs the cause of the fault should be investigated before switching the MCB back on. Details of the MCB ratings and the circuits they protect are detailed in the back of this handbook.

12 Volt DC Fuses

These fuses are provided to protect the various

12 volt circuits from an overload or short circuit.

If a fuse does blow, the cause of the fault should be investigated before a replacement is fitted.

When replacing a fuse, always replace a fuse

11404 - AT Apache - Tracker Owners Handbook V1 REPRO_Layout 1 13/10/2015 11:18 Page 19

Flue Covers / Water Services

36

Flue Covers

The Refrigerator and Truma Ultrastore water heater fitted to your vehicle are supplied with flue covers that are designed to keep out water and debris if the vehicle is to be stood unused for any length of time.

The flue covers must be removed before the appliances are used as the covers will stop combustion air entering the appliance and the flue gasses escaping if left in place.

Truma Ultrastore Flue Cover

The Ultrastore water heater flue cover is removed by pulling the bottom of the cover away from the vehicle.

This pulling action will unclip the cover from the bottom and allow it to rotate upwards to be released from the vehicle.

Replacing the cover is a reversal of the above procedure.

Water Services

Fresh Water Tank

Your vehicle has an on board fresh water tank that allows you to carry fresh water with you on your journey. This tank supplies all of the water systems inside your vehicle. The volume of the fresh water tank will vary depending on which model you have chosen.

Water is pumped from the on board tank by a self priming and cancelling automatic pump throughout the vehicle.

www.auto-trail.co.uk

The pump is fitted with an in-line filter to ensure trouble free running. This must be cleaned periodically to ensure that there is no reduction in flow.

The pump automatically pressurises the water system to a pre-determined water pressure, when a tap is opened water flows from it and the pump switches on to maintain the pre-determined pressure.

When the tap is switched off the pump will continue running until the correct pressure in the system is reached, it will then shut down.

The pump circuit is controlled by the isolation switch on the control panel. Always switch off

the pump at the control panel when leaving the vehicle.

Please note that if the pump runs on for more than 5-10 seconds after you have closed all the taps, it is possible that there could be a leak in the system. This should be checked immediately.

Owners Handbook :

Filling The Fresh Water Tank

The tank is filled via a lockable water inlet on the outside of your vehicle.

This inlet is identified by a blue tap symbol adjacent to it, (either a blue label or a blue moulding on the filler itself).

The location of the water inlet will vary from vehicle to vehicle so please familiarise yourself with its location before using your vehicle for the first time.

Before attempting to fill your fresh water tank please ensure that the cold water drain tap inside the vehicle is in the closed position (see ‘draining the water system’ section).

To Fill

• Remove the cap and insert a suitable length of pipe.

• Connect the other end to a clean water supply.

• Fill the tank until either the water level gauge reads 100%, or until the tank begins to overflow.

• Remove the hose. Replace the cap, lock and remove the key.

Emptying the fresh water tank

Your freshwater tank will have at least one drainage tap located outside your vehicle (depending on the model it could have two drainage taps fitted – see

“travel drain” section below).

To completely empty the freshwater tank simply rotate the drainage tap to the open position and the tank will empty.

Please note, use only food or drug quality pipe.

Waste Water Tank

All waste water (excluding the toilet) is piped into an onboard waste water tank located underneath your vehicle. The volume of the waste water tank will vary depending on which model you have chosen.

When the waste tank becomes full (which will be indicated by a visible and audible signal on control panel), the tank should be emptied via the drain valve on the outside of the vehicle over a suitable drainage point.

When the ‘tank full’ indicator sounds there will still be some capacity in the waste tank, but we would advise that it is emptied as soon as possible.

General Care

48

Motorhome Exterior

The exterior of Auto-Trail Motorhomes are finished with a highly polished fibreglass skin.

This is a very durable surface and is very easy to clean due to its high gloss finish.

To maintain a showroom finish, wash the

Motorhome regularly with a mild detergent, rinse off with cold water and leather off.

A good quality car wax may be applied which will make washing even easier in the future.

Abrasive cleaning agents must never be used to clean the exterior of Auto-Trail Motorhomes.

Within the first twelve months cracks and blisters can appear in the surface of moulded

GRP components. These are cosmetic only and have no effect on the vehicles structure.

These components can be readily repaired using the correct procedure (please refer this to your supplying dealer).

Mouldings

All mouldings are powder coated aluminium and will retain their colour and finish for a long time if no abrasive materials are used to clean them.

Care Of Windows

The windows in your vehicles are fully double glazed and with care will remain sparkling and scratch free.

Day to Day Cleaning – please wash windows carefully, as you would with paintwork on your car. Do not scrub windows prior to removing surface dirt and film with a hose – any trapped www.auto-trail.co.uk

dirt could cause scratching. When all the excess dirt has been removed, wash with a solution of warm water and a small amount of washing up liquid, windows can then be dried off with a window leather.

Small Scratches – can be removed using a liquid metal polish or a commercial acrylic polish, available from most good accessory shops.

The type of polish used should depend on the severity of the scratch; a more abrasive substance is needed for deeper scratches, for example. Any process of scratch removal should be finished with the finest grade of polish to ‘buff’ the area(s) concerned.

Catches and Stays – all the Polyplastic ranges of window fittings do not require any special attention or lubrication. On a day to day level, please be careful not to over-tighten the thumbscrews on window stays.

It is a popular misconception that acrylic

Motorhome windows are vacuum sealed, this is not so. The windows in a Motorhome can, as with domestic glazing, be susceptible to temporary condensation if the temperature difference between inside and outside changes quickly and / or dramatically i.e. if a cold

Motorhome is heated quickly using the heater or by the sun.

These drastic changes of temperature and the moisture in the air both contribute towards the temporary condensation that will normally disappear as quickly as it appears.

This whole phenomenon is purely related to ambient temperature changes of the

Motorhome compared to the window cavities.

General Care

Owners Handbook :

Notes on internal condensation

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 internal surfaces of the vehicle are.

Condensation is normally more noticeable during the winter months as the Motorhome is cold and because skylights, windows and doors are opened less meaning that the moist internal air cannot escape.

How to try to minimise the likelihood of condensation occurring

To try to minimise the risk of condensation occurring it is important to try to maintain some level of ventilation.

Your vehicle complies with EN721 which states the minimum requirements for high and low level ventilation, it is very important that these are not blocked or reduced in any way.

Try to provide reasonable heating.

If possible use the electric element of the space heater when washing, cooking or drying damp clothes, particularly if the windows show signs of misting up.

Try to make sure all areas are at least partially heated, condensation most often occurs in unheated areas.

To prevent condensation the heat has to keep the room surfaces reasonably warm.

It can take a long time for a cold Motorhome to warm up so it is better to have a small amount of heat for a long period rather than a lot of heat for a short time.

A Motorhome that have been left unoccupied of long periods of time can become 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.

Even in a well insulated Motorhome with correct ventilation it is likely during cold weather if the temperature is less than 10 occur. Ideally the temperature should be kept at about

20 o o

C that condensation will

C although this is not always possible.

Motorhome Interior Side Walls, Roof Lining and Furniture

A simple wash with a damp cloth and a mild detergent is all that is necessary.

Soft Furnishings

Carpets should be vacuumed occasionally to remove grit and sand. This helps maintain good appearance and ensure long life.

The upholstery can be cleaned with a mild reputable upholstery cleaner.

It is recommended that curtains be dry cleaned.

Leather Upholstery

As leather is 100% natural product, some variation in texture and grain may be evident in the seat covers of your vehicle.

Caring for Leather

Avoid exposing leather to direct sunlight for prolonged periods, and keep away from strong heat sources.

Avoid your furniture getting damp, and clean any spills immediately. Sharp objects could tear, scratch and score leather.

Cleaning

Once a month, wipe with a damp cloth and dry thoroughly with a towel. Once a year (or as required) apply a leather cream as per the manufacturer’s instructions to keep the leather supple.

Please Note

We do not recommend that you sleep on any leather covered upholstery, for this reason these beds have been fixed and will not pull-out.

Cupboard Catches

It is advisable to lightly oil cupboard catches, sliding bolts and hinges from time to time.

Vanity Unit / Shower Cubicle

Your vehicle is fitted with a plastic vanity bowl. Do not pour very hot water into it as it is made from a moulded polymer that may deform, always put cold water in first.

Care Of Plastic Components

The cleaning of any plastic components in the vehicle, e.g shower tray, should only be undertaken with mild soapy water. General household cleaning products should not be used as they may cause the plastic to go brittle and crack.

Auto-Trail will not be held responsible for any replacement if it is suspected that this was the case.

Plated Fittings

These should never be cleaned using abrasive cleaners.

Clean with a damp cloth and polish with a dry cloth only.

Natural Wood Worktop Edges

Should your vehicle worktop edges show signs of the lacquer breaking down, they should be re-sealed using a proprietary yacht varnish, (or equivalent).

Winter Laying Up

Care should always be taken to ensure your investment is receiving the best attention, particularly prior to going into winter storage.

The following tips will be helpful for the periods when your Motorhome is not regularly used.

It applies if you store in a compound away from home, or in your own drive.

Tyres

Care should be taken to ensure that your vehicle is not stored with slightly deflated tyres as this could cause damage to the side walls that could lead to an accident when driving at speed.

Ideally you should rotate your wheels every couple of weeks to try to eliminate flat spots developing.

Water System

It is important that the water system is drained off during the winter months to avoid freezing when the Motorhome is not in use or after the last trip of the season. Failure to do this could result in serious damage to components.

To Drain Off

• Open the drain valve on the fresh water tank to ensure it is fully empty.

• Open the drain valve on the waste tank to ensure it is fully empty, (only drain into a suitable container).

• Open all taps inside the vehicle and leave open.

• Open the drain valve inside the vehicle to empty the water heater and empty the pipe work inside the vehicle.

• Allow the vehicle to drain in this way for five minutes, then run the pump to ensure it is free of water.

• Empty cassette toilet, (see manufacturers instructions).

Window Blinds

Window night blinds should not be left in the

‘closed’ position for long periods as this may affect their folding back into the ‘open’ position.

Bringing Your Vehicle Out Of Storage

Before starting to use your Motorhome after a long storage period we would recommend that you have all gas and 230V electrical services checked by a competent person.

We would recommend that the water system is flushed through with a sterilising solution prior to the first use of the Motorhome.

• Household rubbish should be put into the private rubbish collection bins.

Noise Pollution

Please show consideration by thinking how the noise you create will affect those around you.

Open and close doors quietly.

Control noise made by your children: do not allow them to play with kites, model aircraft, catapults or airguns close to vehicles.

Do not allow them to play loud, boisterous ballgames.

Keep volume turned down on CD players, personal stereos radios and TVs. Do not play musical instruments so loudly that they will upset your neighbours.

Good Neighbour Guide

Owners Handbook :

If you have a power generator, make sure it is adequately silenced and use it with consideration, especially after dark.

Pets

• No animal should be allowed to run loose on the site.

• Leads must be no longer than 3m.

• Animals are not allowed in the shower or toilet blocks.

• Dogs must not be allowed to foul sites, roads or green areas.

• Carry a small spade and a supply of plastic bags in your Motorhome in order to clean up any mess made by your dog. It is then possible to dispose of it in an appropriate manner.

Fire Precautions

Read all fire precaution notices and make sure that you and your family are familiar with the locations of hoses, extinguishers and assembly points.

A fire blanket is a good idea for the kitchen.

Barbecues should not be used unless permission has been given. If you are allowed to use a barbecue, use it with care and consideration for those around you.

Open fires are not allowed on campsites.

Tents And Awnings

It is polite to ask permission before erecting a tent or awning. Permission will normally be granted if the tent is of a recognised standard make and in good condition.

If the stay is longer than a day or two the groundsheet and/or side flaps of the awning should be lifted to avoid unsightly patches or damage to the grass.

Leaving The Site

Always tidy your pitch and make sure you do not leave bags of rubbish lying about. Check out at reception, pay your site fees and thank them for an enjoyable stay.

Wild Camping

Camping on a non-licensed site without the permission of the landowner is illegal in the UK.

If you do have permission to camp on an unlicensed site, always follow the advice in the code.

Pay particular attention to the following points:

• Dispose of litter only in receptacles provided for the purpose. If there are none, put litter in plastic bags and take it away with you to dispose of in an appropriate manner.

• Control the water waste from your Motorhome, do not let it run onto the ground.

• Chemical toilets must only be emptied in an appropriate waste point.

• Do not hang washing or similar items outside your vehicle.

• Do not allow children to climb on fences or walls.

Damage to these may allow farm animals to stray into the wrong field.

Parking

You should only park your vehicle in an approved place and during the permitted times. Do not use any of your facilities such as cooking or washing in a way that may cause annoyance or inconvenience to those around you.

User Manuals

Before using your Motorhome for the first time, and at the beginning of each season, read and follow the advice given by the manufacturer and appliance manufacturers in their user handbooks.

Protecting The Environment

Always behave and, encourage children to behave, in a manner that protects the environment and other people's property.

Please read and follow the advice contained in the country code and the coastal code.

After many years of use you may decide that your vehicle has reached the end of its useful life 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 who will deal with it properly to minimise any environmental impact.

Annual Check List

54

Auto-Trail Motorhome

Annual Checklist

Introduction

It makes good sense to check over your

Motorhome at least every year.

If you tend not to use it much during the winter months, check it over before storing it.

Any defect, repairs or adjustments can then be made without rushing. At the start of the new season, check and clean the Motorhome inside and out, lubricate and top up any systems that may have been missed in the autumn and get ready to enjoy another year of fantastic holidays and weekends away.

1. Body Mounting

Body to Chassis

Examine all fixings holding the body to the chassis. These may be direct connections or via sub frame. Check that all fixings are present and tight.

Body to Cab

Examine the joint between the body and the cab for any signs of movement. Check that the sealing media are sound.

Body Retention (de-mountables)

Check that the body retaining gear is serviceable and tight. Check that the body support struts are serviceable and tight.

www.auto-trail.co.uk

2. Windows

Window Fitments and Operation

Check that the window glazing rubber or seal is in good condition and that there is no sign of deterioration or cracking. Check that the windows open and close easily and smoothly.

On top hung windows ensure that the fixing of the top hinge rail is satisfactory. Check that there is a good weather seal when the window is closed and latched. Ensure all catches and stays operate satisfactorily. Repair or replace any defective parts.

3. External Doors

Security

Check hinges and catches for satisfactory operation and ensure that the doors are held securely shut when latched. Check that keys and internal latches lock the doors properly.

Check that any device designed to hold the door in an open position is fitted correctly and operates positively.

Seals

Ensure that the door seals are in good general condition and are free from cracking and other signs of deterioration. Check that when the door is closed it provides a weather tight seal.

Cab Seats

Where cab seats form part of the living area and/or bed layout, check that they are attached securely. Make sure that the seat slides, swivels and seat backs operate smoothly and easily.

Fire Extinguisher

Check the condition and the expiry date. If the date has expired or the extinguisher is partly exhausted, replace.

8. Gas Systems

Cylinders and Regulators

Check the compatibility of cylinders and regulators.

Ensure that your regulator controls the gas to the correct pressure for the type of cylinder in use. Check that the air vents and gas drain hole in the floor of the cylinder compartment are free from obstruction. Check that the seals on all the internal doors are in good condition and fit properly.

Hosing and Piping

Check flexible hoses for cracking and condition.

Check the date stamped on them has not passed. If the expiry date is close or passed, have the hoses replaced. Check all rigid piping for adequate support and any damage.

Appliances

As a guide checking the gas appliances can be summarised as follows:

• Cleaning: Where appropriate, remove cover(s) to gain access to exchanger. Remove any build up of fluff or other foreign matter.

Re-assemble and test operation.

Clean flame-viewing window.

• Operation of controls: Check all knobs etc are secure on their spindles and that they work smoothly. Check that the appliance works properly by using normal controls without forcing. If the gas taps are stiff to operate, ease them open with an approved

LPG grease.

Flame Structure

• Pilot flames should burn quietly and cleanly.

• Refrigerator: When the fridge gas control is turned to maximum the flame colour should be predominantly blue.

• Water heater: The main burner should burn blue and of even height.

• Ovens: Flames should be of even height and burn quietly. The colour should be mainly blue/green but there will be yellow tips to the flames as the burner heats up.

• Grill burners: Flames may develop yellow tips as they heat up, especially when using butane.

11404 - AT Apache - Tracker Owners Handbook V1 REPRO_Layout 1 13/10/2015 11:18 Page 57

Annual Check List

Owners Handbook :

• General comments: A flame lifting away from the burner indicates that the pressure is too high.

A yellow flame causes sooting and indicates the pressure is too low. If these faults occur, recheck the regulator, cylinders and pipes, adjust as necessary.

• Flues: Check security of fixings, attachments to appliances and flue terminals. Check for damage and corrosion. Check for gas leakage into the vehicle.

• Flame failure device (FFD): Check for satisfactory operation by the following method: after the appliance has been checked, allow time for the thermocouple to cool. Try to relight the appliance by turning it on without pushing the gas control knob in. If the appliance does not light the FFD is working.

• Security: Check that all appliances are securely fixed to the vehicle/ furniture and that no ‘play’ is present. Where applicable check that the water pipes are properly attached and there are no signs of leaks.

9. Water System

Before operating the water system, check the following items visually for signs of leakage.

Fresh Water Tank/Container

Check condition. Fill tank and check for leaks.

Check external filler and filler pipe to tank.

Check venting. Check presence and condition of filler cap.

Waste Water Tank

Check that the drain tap is clear and working properly. Make sure that the drain hose is present and in good condition.

Pump Filter

When applicable, remove filter, clean and replace.

Check the in-line pump for security of fixing and condition. Check that the pump inlets and outlets are clear and not obstructed. Check security of fixing and condition of delivery hose and electric cable.

System Check

Operate the pump and check all piping for leaks.

Operate all taps and shower. If a hot water system is fitted, it can be checked for leaks using cold water.

Please note aerated water from a tap could be caused by a leak on the suction side of the pump.

Waste Water System

Allow water to run through drain pipes: check for leaks and satisfactory draining from sinks etc.

• Couplings and fluids: Avoid confusion by making sure proper markings are used: Blue for fresh water and red for waste water. Check that the filler positions are correctly designated:

'Petrol', 'Diesel' and 'Water' as appropriate.

10. Electrical System

Extra Low Voltage 12V (Excluding vehicle electrics).

• Batteries: Check the condition of any battery including connections, wire, fuses and relays connected with domestic electric's.

• Wiring: Examine all visible wiring for damage or wear. Check that all connections are safe.

• Fuses and Holders: Check that all fuses and fuse holders protecting the domestic electric's are satisfactory. Check that fuse ratings are compatible with the appliances being protected.

• Appliances: Inspect all appliances for signs of damage, overheating or wear. Check the security of the fixings. Test the operation of each appliance.

• Mains System 230V: Inspection and certification of the 230V system should only be carried out by a suitably qualified electrician.

Please Note:

The Mass in Running Order (MRO) is the mass of the empty vehicle including a 75kg allowance for the driver, the diesel tank and lpg bottle full. The MRO is calculated with the freshwater tank empty on all models and one 13kg LPG bottle. Should you choose to travel with your freshwater tank full or with additional gas the MRO figure should be adjusted accordingly.

All weights quoted are for standard vehicles. Please take care to ensure that you have allowed for the masses of all items you intend to carry in the motorcaravan. EG Passengers, optional equipment, essential habitation and personal effects such as clothing, food, pets, bicycles etc.

Tolerances

The MRO figure quoted is representative of a number of similar specification models weighed on our fully calibrated axle weighbridge. Because of the materials and construction techniques used in the manufacture of our motorhomes, all weights quoted by us are subject to the tolerances allowed in Regulation (EU) No. 1230/2012 (+/-3%).

WARNING

Under no circumstances should the maximum gross weight of the vehicle be exceeded.

HEATING GRADE All Auto-Trail vehicles have a minimum heating classification of grade 3. This means that your vehicle can maintain an average temperature of at least 20 degrees centigrade when the outside temperature minus 15 degrees centigrade.

GAS INPUT OF APPLIANCES

Fire = 3.9kw. Water Heater = 1.7kw. Cooker (3 gas burners) = 8.3kw. Fridge = 0.19kw.
