Code of Conduct - Camp Sites
Report to reception immediately on
arrival.
Vehicle Movement
Dogs and Pets
•
Keep to roadways unless otherwise
directed.
•
•
Adhere to speed limits. Note that these
are generally 10 mph. (Remember that
the stopping distance on grass is
considerably greater than on tarmac).
All dogs and other pets should be kept
under control.
•
Unless permission has been granted, no
animal should be allowed loose on the
site and leads must not exceed 10ft.
•
Only a person in possession of a current
driving licence may drive on the site.
•
No animal should be allowed in the

Environment
The Country Code
Enjoy the countryside but respect its life and
work.
Parking
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.
Motorhomes should only be parked in
approved places.
When using the facilities of a motorhome at
such times, care and consideration should be
given to those around them.
Guard against all risk of fires. Hay and heath
land catch alight easily and once ablaze are
very hard to put out. Remember: Fire
Spreads Quickly.
Driving
When using a motorhome on either the public
highway or private road, the Highway Code
should be complied with and full
consideration given to other road users.
In the event of a motorhome travelling slowly
and there being a queue of traffic behind, the
driver of the motorhome should, where
possible, pull over in order to let the other
traffic pass.
When the vehicle is in motion it is compulsory
2-2
•
Keep to public paths across farmland.
•
Use gates and stiles to cross fences,
hedges and walls.
•
Leave livestock, crops and machinery
alone. View from a distance.
•
Take your litter home - it is unsightly and
harmful to wildlife.
MOTORHOME CODE
•
Help to keep all water clean.
•
Take special care of country roads.
•
Make no unnecessary noise. Most
animals are very timid, noises can disturb
them unnecessarily. If you want to get the
best out of the country, go quietly.
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.
•
Do not trample about, or move rocks
unnecessarily.
•
Do not frighten seals or seabirds.
•
Do not spear fish.
•
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 mollusks 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 seaweed unnecessarily.
•
Make your visit instructive - not
destructive.
•
Look at material, don’t remove it. Take
notes and photographs, not specimens.
•
Observe bye-laws and be considerate to
others.
•
National Trust property or Country Parks
have regulations to protect the wildlife.
Follow these.
Fire Precautions
You should also make yourself aware of the
local fire regulations.

PREPARING FOR THE ROAD
YOUR MOTORHOME (Weights
explained)
LOADING AND DISTRIBUTION OF
WEIGHT IN THE MOTORHOME
Mass in Running Order (MRO)
SENSIBLE LOADING
The weight of your motorhome as it leaves
the factory, as new with standard fixtures and
fittings, plus an allowance for driver and 90%
fuel.
HOW TO APPORTION WEIGHT
Maximum Technically Permissible Laden
Mass (MTPLM)
The maximum weight of the vehicle when
fully laden for use on the road. See
specification section for actual figure.
User Payload
The load margin (payload), this represents
the difference between the Mass in Running
Order (MRO) and the Maximum Technically
Permissible Laden Mass (MTPLM). It shows
the maximum weight which can be loaded
into your motorhome, covering items such as
food, crockery, cutlery, clothing, bedding, gas
cylinders, etc. See Technical Specification for
actual figure.
Loading
Correct weight distribution is a major factor in
making your motorhome a balanced and
pleasant vehicle to drive without
compromising road-holding. Care should
therefore be taken to ensure that heavy items
are well spaced and are in as low a position
as possible, for example, low cupboards and
bed boxes.
Please take care to ensure that you have
allowed for the masses of all items you intend
to carry in the motorhome, e.g.. passengers,
optional equipment, essential habitation
equipment and personal effects such as
clothing, food, pets, bicycles etc.
DO NOT EXCEED THE STATED MAXIMUM
LOAD. ITEMS FITTED OTHER THAN
STANDARD EQUIPMENT WILL DEPLETE
THE PAYLOAD STATED IN THIS
HANDBOOK.
Although there are additional seat belts within
the motorhome, please refer to the stated
number of passengers that are allowed due
to the MRO and MTPLM.
WARNING: Under no circumstances
should the maximum permissible laden
mass of the motorhome be exceeded.
Roof Loading
DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO CLIMB
ONTO THE ROOF.
Roof Rack Bars and Ladder (optional)
When using the optional roof rack, care
should be taken to see that all the items are
securely anchored. Apart from general
cleaning and polishing, the roof rack and
ladder require no special maintenance.
WARNING: Take special care when on the
roof in wet or frosty weather conditions,
which cause it to be particularly slippery.
Maximum load within the area encompassed

fastened and turn off all gas appliances,
except those heating appliances
designed to function while the vehicle is
in motion. Also, ensure that the gas
locker door is securely fastened.
5. Ensure that there is sufficient gas to meet
your needs.
21. The fridge vent covers should be fitted
when the vehicle is to be driven in order
to comply with European Type Approval
regulations for vehicle external
projections.
6. Switch off 230 volt supply at source,
disconnect mains cable from vehicle.
Beware of potential electric shock from
wet cable. Coil cable and store in a safe
place.
22. Ensure that the toilet flush tank only
contains a small amount of water (1-2
litres) in order to minimise the risks of
leaks or spillage whilst the vehicle is in
motion.
7. Check your RCD’s/MCB’s for operation.
23. Check underneath the vehicle for stray
items.
8. Check and if necessary, charge the
conversion battery.
24. Safely store levelling blocks away in an
appropriate place.
9. Check battery selection switch is in the
OFF position.
10. Check that the battery is secure and that
the battery box lid is fastened.

4-1
ON THE ROAD
Cycle Rack
Front Seat Swivel (where fitted)
In order that a cycle rack can be fitted, the
rear panel coachwork has been strengthened
accordingly. Timber is bonded into the
bodywork immediately above the rear light
units, laterally across the vehicle. This allows
the lower mounting brackets for the Fiamma
Pro-C cycle rack to be fitted in a suitably
reinforced area. In the event of a cycle rack
being fitted, the cycle rack when folded will
increase the vehicle length by 400mm. Your
Auto-Sleeper dealer will give further advice or
assistance if required.
Your vehicle may be fitted with a swivel base
to either or both of the front seats, so that
they may be turned to face the rear of the
vehicle. The release handle is located on the
inside of the seat and is moved rearwards to
unlock the swivel mechanism.
Warning: It is important that while the
vehicle is in motion, any seat swivels are
locked in the forward facing position.
Map Storage
In the rear of each cab seat there is a map
pocket for storage of maps, periodicals and
light items.
Whilst Driving
Whilst the vehicle is being driven ensure that:
•
Both the passenger and driver wear seat
belts - this is a legal requirement.
•
Heavy loads are not stored in top
cupboards or in areas from which they
may become detached. Please ensure
that heavy items are stored low down and
take care not to overload individual
wheels, the axles or the MTPLM.
•
Table(s) are stowed in the correct
position and table legs secured in their
retaining clips.
•
Furniture lids are lowered; cupboards and
flaps are closed and secured.
•
The refrigerator door is closed and
secured by its travelling catch.
•
The retractable rear step if fitted, is folded
away or, if a separate step is supplied, it
is safely stowed in the vehicle.
•
Roof ventilators are closed and locked in
the down position.
•
The bathroom is not used whilst the
vehicle is in motion. (Note: Refers only to
models fitted with shower or toilet
compartment).

ARRIVAL AT SITE
CHECK SITE REGULATIONS
Siting your Motorhome
When siting your motorhome, keep to the
roadways unless otherwise directed. Obey
the speed limit which, in general, is 10 mph.
Only a person in possession of a current
driving licence is permitted to drive on the
site. Stopping distances on grass are
considerably greater than on tarmac.
Selecting a Pitch
Carefully select where you wish to park your
motorhome. The site should be as level as
possible, well drained and away from boggy
areas and, preferably, not under or near
trees. Consider also, how you will move your
motorhome when leaving the site. For
example, on sloping ground in wet
conditions, pitch facing downhill.
Levelling
The optional rear corner steadies, which can
be lowered by using the brace supplied, are
designed to give greater stability to the
vehicle when it is stationary on site. The
brace is stored in the wardrobe.
Note: On no account should the rear corner
steadies be used to jack up the vehicle when
carrying out maintenance or changing a
wheel.
It is important to site your motorhome level to
ensure correct operation of the refrigeration,
cooker, etc. by using purpose made ramps
and NOT bricks or such items.
Awning Light
The exterior awning light is controlled by the
‘Aux’ switch on the electrical control panel.

SAFETY & SECURITY
SAFETY
make any additional openings in the floor.
Important: Your attention is drawn to the
notice affixed in the motorhome advising on
fire prevention, ventilation and what to do in
case of fire.
Under no circumstances must these vents
be blocked or obstructed.
Additional night time ventilation is obtained
by releasing the window catches and placing
them in the second groove on the frame
catch.
Children
Do not leave children alone in the motorhome
in any event, keep potentially dangerous
items out of reach as at home. e.g. matches,
drugs, etc.
Awnings
There is no danger of pollution of an
enclosed awning space by the LPG exhaust
from the refrigerator venting into it.
WARNING: When upper bunks are used
by children especially under six years of
age care shall be taken against the risk of
them falling out.
WARNING: Space heaters may produce
sufficient exhaust gases 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.
Fire Extinguishers
It is recommended that a 1 kg (2lb) minimum
capacity dry powder fire extinguisher be
located by the main exit door at all times.
Note: Motorhome owners are advised to
allow some fresh air circulation into the
awning space when such appliances are in
use.
A pan fire should not have an extinguisher
aimed at it but be smothered with a fire
blanket (which should be stored by the
cooker).
In case of fire
1. Get 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 gas container valve if safe to do
so.
Ventilation and Condensation
The ventilation points on your motorhome are
fixed points of ventilation which are stated by
the European Standards. Under no
circumstances must these vents be blocked
or obstructed. It is advised that fixed
ventilation points and any protective screens
are checked and cleaned (if necessary) on a
regular basis.
Fresh air circulation should be allowed below
the motorhome when appliances are in use
and when flues terminate below the floor to
allow free evacuation of the products of
combustion. At least three sides of the
underfloor space should always be kept open
and unobstructed especially by snow. Do not

Understanding different alarms
High Level Alarm
If a high level of CO (above 70ppm) has
been detected for a specified period of time,
a loud continuous 85dB (at 3 metres) alarm
will sound and the High Level LED will flash
once very 5 seconds. Press the Test/Reset
button to silence the alarm for 6 minutes. If
the CO level remains above 70ppm during
this 6 minutes, the alarm will again sound.
Quick Reference Label
Low Level Alarm
WARNING: A loud alarm is a warning that
high and potentially lethal levels of
carbon monoxide are present. Never
ignire this alarm, further exposure can be
fatal. Immediately check residents for
symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning,
and contact the proper authorities to
resolve all CO problems.
A Quick Reference Label is located on the
back of your detector and provides you with
general instructions on the actions to take
when your alarm sounds. For full details,
read this owner’s manual carefully.
What to do in the event of an alarm
The detector will sound a loud continuous
85dB (at 3 metres) alarm and the Low Level
LED will flash once every 5 seconds when a
low level of CO (35ppm-70ppm) has been
continuously detected for 4 hours. To silence
the alarm, press the Test/Reset button. If the
CO level remains above 35ppm for the next 4
hours, the alarm will again sound.
NEVER IGNORE A LOW-LEVEL OR HIGHLEVEL ALARM
Continued low level alarms are an indication
that the potential of a high level alarm exists.
You should treat this alarm very seriously.
Prolonged low levels of CO are believed to
cause brain damage and heart disease,
particularly in children and pregnant women.
Call a qualified service engineer and have
the problem investigated and rectified
immediately. In the case of gas appliances
this must be a CORGI registered installer.
Please carefully review these instructions to
ensure that you know what actions to take in
the event of both high and low-level alarms.
What to do during a high-level alarm
WARNING: If both the High Level LED and
the Low Level LED are flashing, the unit
has detected both High and Low levels of

Frost Precaution
If the vehicle is not being used during
freezing conditions the water must be
drained. Whilst the vehicle is being used in
such conditions, and the water heater is at
risk of freezing, it should be drained by
opening the drain valve.
Connection of services are dealt with under
separate headings, Water, Electricity and

WATER SYSTEMS
Fresh/Waste Tanks
FRESH WATER PUMP
The freshwater tank is located under the floor
in the centre of the vehicle, with its drain tap
in the skirt on the offside of the vehicle. The
waste water tank is under the rear of the
vehicle with the drain tap in the offside skirt
behind the rear axle.
For capacities of both see the Technical
Specification Section.
The fresh water tank is filled through the
Truma Ultraflow socket on the offside of the
vehicle using the special hose supplied.
All pipe work is manufactured to food grade
material specification.
A Flojet R3426-500 Triplex Diaphragm
automatic water system pump is fitted under
the offside settee adjacent to the combi
heater unit. This is a self priming pump,
mounted on noise absorbing mounts, which
has the ability to run dry without damage. It
has a flow rate of 5.3 litres (1.4 gallons) per
minute.
Operation
With pump switch off and battery fully
charged, fill water tank, open all taps, then
turn pump switch on. Water will begin to flow.
When the water is free of air, turn taps off.
Remember, you are filling the water heater
and the toilet and shower lines. When all
valves are shut-off, pump will stop.

CONNECTION OF SERVICES
Caution: Should pump fail to stop, turn
switch off and see the trouble shooting guide.
Refer to coach or equipment manufacturers
instructions for their specific winterising and
drainage procedures.
Sanitising
WARNING: Do not use automotive antifreeze to winterise potable water systems.
These solutions are highly toxic and may
cause serious injury or death if ingested.
Portable water systems require periodic
maintenance to delivery a consistent flow of
freshwater. Depending on use and the
environment the system is subject to,
sanitising is recommended prior to storing
and before using the water system after a
period of storage.
1. Drain the water tank. Open tank drain
valve. You may use the pump to drain the
tank by opening all the taps in the
system. Allow the pump to operate until
the tank is empty. Do not operate the
pump more than 15 minutes
continuously.
Systems with new components, or ones that
have been subjected to contamination,
should also be disinfected as follows:
1. Use of the following methods to
determine the amount of common
household bleach needed to sanitise the
tank.
(A) Multiply “gallon of tank capacity” by
0.13; the result is the ounces of bleach
needed to sanitise the tank.
(B) Multiply “litres of tank capacity” by
1.0; the result is the milli-litres of bleach
needed to sanitise the tank.
2. Open all taps and purge the water from
the plumbing system. Turn power to the
pump off. Be sure that all the water from
the drain lines are drained.
3. Remove quick connect inlet and outlet
fittings from the pump and turn the pump
on to pump out remaining water from the
pump head. Be sure to have a catch pan
or a rag under the pump to prevent water
from spilling onto the RV. Turn the pump
off once the plumbing is empty. Leave the
fittings disconnected from the pump until
the system is ready to be used again.
Make a note on your tank filler that the
plumbing is not connected.
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 potable water.
4. Open ALL taps (hot and cold) allowing
the water to run until the distinct odour of
chlorine is detected.
4. Be sure that all taps are left open to
protect against damage to the plumbing.
5. The standard solution must have four (4)
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 potable water
and purge the plumbing of all sanitising
solution.
Winterising
Allowing water to freeze in the system may
result in damage to the pump and plumbing
system.
Non-toxic anti-freeze for potable water may
be used with Flojet pumps. Follow
manufacturers recommendations.

GAS
GENERAL INFORMATION
Gas Bottles
Bottled Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) is the
most convenient portable source of fuel for
your motorhome. The motorhome includes a
gas bottle stowage compartment.
Make sure that heating and cooking
appliances and the gas cylinders are
switched off before you move the
motorhome.
The regulator
Your motorhome is fitted with a regulator as
standard equipment. The gas regulator has a
working pressure of 30mbar and is suitable
for both propane and butane liquefied
petroleum gas. There are dedicated hoses
available for different types of gas/bottle.
They are also available for camping gas and
other mainland Europe LPG suppliers.
Please contact your retailer who will have a
stock of these hoses.
Truma regulator
WARNING: Some industrial LPG
appliances operate at high pressure and
require a ‘high pressure’ regulator. This
often has an adjusting handle on it.
NEVER use such a regulator on a
motorhome.
Note: Regulator valves should always be in
the ‘OFF’ position when towing.

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 connection.
Continental bottles usually have a male left
hand thread similar to but not identical with
U.K. butane.
Butane is suitable for use at temperatures
down to 2°C but will not work below that.
Propane
Propane is supplied in Red, or partly red
bottles which have a female left hand
threaded connector.
Scandinavian countries use the same
connector.
Germany and Austria supply propane with a
male connection.
Propane will work at temperatures as low as 40°C and is therefore suitable for all winter

Note: See Technical Specification section for
recommended gas bottle sizes.
GAS SAFETY ADVICE
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).
CHANGING GAS CYLINDERS
LPG has been given a smell by the
manufacturers in order to identify leaks.
Ensure that the cylinder is empty, then:
i.
Turn off the tap located by the gas
regulator.
ii. Turn off cylinder valve and all gas
appliances.
iii. Remove the gas hose from the cylinder.
If the gas hose is left disconnected
protect the open inlet against the entry of
dirt or insects.
iv. Release retaining strap.
v. Remove cylinder from gas locker and
stand on
ground.
vi. Fit plastic
protecting cap
to cylinder.
Only use gas cylinders stored in the
dedicated gas locker. Do not attempt to fit
extension hoses or use externally located
gas bottles.
PRECAUTIONS
a) Never 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) Avoid naked lights when connecting or

This should be checked regularly to see that
it has not become blocked.
d) The gas is heavier than air and therefore
sinks to the lowest point.
High Level Ventilation
VENTILATION
High level ventilation is provided by the roof
vents. The ventilation provided has been
carefully calculated and relates to the rating
of the appliances in the vehicle. Roof vents
must not be covered with anything that may
limit or affect the ventilation they provide.
General
Maintenance
Fixed ventilation is a statutory requirement in
all motorhomes. These ventilation apertures
are positioned at both high and low level and
for your safety should not be obstructed,
even partially.
Under no circumstances should any fixed
ventilation aperture be blocked, covered,
either partially or fully, or be modified in any
manner whatsoever. They should be checked
at least annually for damage or blockage.
Screens and/or grilles should be kept clean
and free from dust. See diagram of upper/
lower ventilation.
e) Keep bottle gas containers outside (and
protected against frost). If they must be
kept inside make sure they are well away
from heat.
Low Level Ventilation
Under each appliance is a fixed ventilation
aperture, of a size commensurate with the
rating of the appliance itself. It is either gauze

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.
Ensure that the gas regulator is correctly
connected to the gas cylinder in gas bottle
compartment and that the hose is tight.
Before turning on the gas supply, ensure that
all gas operated equipment in the motorhome
is turned off.
All gas equipment is supplied through a
central Gas Manifold System which has
individual isolation taps for each appliance
denoted by a symbol (see below).
When you are cooking, it is essential to
provide additional ventilation such as opening
windows near grill, cooker or oven.
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.

any soot accumulate on pans, fire
radiants, etc., or any smell be produced,
consult a competent installer on the
correct maintenance and adjustment of
burners.
• Never check for gas leaks with a naked
flame.
• Always turn off the gas cylinder valve(s)
or inlet to the motorhome or other
dwelling when gas appliances are not in
use.
• Never use gas appliances without
adequate ventilation. All gas appliances
require a plentiful supply of fresh air for
correct operation. Fixed ventilators or air
inlets should not be stopped up. Where
practicable, turn off all appliances before
retiring to bed, preferably at the cylinder
or inlet to the motorhome or other
dwelling.
• Unless the appliance incorporates
automatic ignition, when lighting an
appliance always make sure you apply a
lighted match or taper to the burner
before turning on the gas.
• If any appliance is disconnected for
repair, maintenance, etc., ensure that the
gas line is capped off.
• If taps are stiff to operate or appear to be
a source of leakage, call in a competent
installer to rectify. LPG taps require a
special grease.
• Always seek advice when in doubt.

On arrival at caravan site
The motorhome mains inlet flexible supply
cable and its limits are shown on page 7-12.
Note: Please check appliance manufacturers
handbook to see if suitable for use with
generator or charger.
1. Before connecting the motorhome
installation to the mains supply, check
that:
A generator may only be connected via the
mains socket. If using a generator you also
need to comply with the requirements/
instructions supplied with the generator.
(a) the mains supply is suitable for your
installation and appliances, i.e. whether it
is a.c. or d.c. and whether it is at the
correct voltage and frequency,
Because motorhomes are sometimes left
unused for long periods in the open, it is
strongly advised that the mains installation is
inspected periodically to ensure that it is safe
to use. The IEE Wiring Regulations
recommend that mains installations in
motorhomes are re-inspected every 3 years
by a qualified person (see list) who should
sign and issue a periodic inspection report.
(The manufacturer recommends annual
inspections).
(b) your installation will be properly earthed.
Never accept a supply from a socket
outlet or plug having only two pins, or
from a lighting outlet, and
(c) any residual current device (earth
leakage circuit breaker) in the mains
supply to the motorhome has been tested
within the last month.
In case of doubt, consult the site owner or his
agent.
2. MAKE SURE THAT THE SWITCH AT
THE SITE SUPPLY POINT IS OFF.
3. Lift the cover of the electricity inlet
provided on the motorhome, and insert
the connector of the supply flexible cable.
4. Remove any cover from the socket outlet
provided at the site supply point, and
connect the plug at the other end of the
supply flexible cable to this. Switch on the
main switch at the site supply point.
Suitably qualified persons acceptable to the
NCC to sign and issue inspection and
completion certificates are:
• an approved contractor of the National
Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting* or
• a member of the Electrical Contractors’
Association
• a member of the Electrical Contractors’
Association of Scotland
• a qualified person acting on behalf of the
above (in which event it should be stated
for whom he is acting).
Note: Use mains cable fully uncoiled and
protect from traffic.
Caution: Be aware that the 12V appliances,
except the refrigerator, will not operate whilst
the ignition is switched on and the vehicle
engine running. The master switch on the
electrical control panel controls the 12 volt
supply.

If electrical polarity indication is not included
in your motorhome electrical equipment, it is
useful to have a means of checking polarity
of the mains supply, especially when touring
overseas. There are available several
proprietary makes of equipment for testing
polarity.
If it can be achieved, it is preferable to
connect live to live, and neutral to neutral to
maintain full electrical protection.
WARNING: Current consumption in the
motorhome must not exceed 16 amps or
the pitch permitted maximum if this is
less than 16 amps.
It is dangerous to attempt modifications
and additions yourself. Never allow
modification of electrical systems and
appliances except by qualified persons.
Lampholder–plugs (bayonet-cap
adaptors) should not in any
circumstances be used.
CAUTION: The Truma Ultraheat has the
potential to draw 8 amps at 2kW. It is,
therefore, advisable to check the supply
rating before switching on two loads (items)
greater than the supply as this may cause an
overload and the circuit breaker to trip.

EC325 POWER CONTROL SYSTEM
1 Key Features
•
325W (~25A) Power Converter - Converts the 230V mains supply into 12v DC power to run
the leisure equipment and supply the battery charger.
•
Intelligent ‘offline’ Battery Charger - Uses a process of disconnecting the leisure battery from
the leisure equipment during the charging process, which allows the battery charger to
charge batteries quicker, recover heavily discharged batteries and achieve a higher final
charge level than traditional battery chargers.
•
Built-in dual Solar Regulator - Allows the direct connection of a 20 to 100W solar panel
without the need for additional components. The dual regulator charges both the vehicle and
leisure batteries simultaneously.
•
System Monitor Circuit - Monitors key components within the power supply to ensure
optimum operation. A simple ‘traffic light’ indicator shows the power supply status.
•
Enhanced Digital Control Panel - With scrolling menu system, battery condition (voltage and
current), water tank levels, tank and battery level warnings with battery protect circuit, alarm
clock and programmable event timer.
2 System Overview
The following diagram shows the typical configuration of the EC325 system. The key component
is the EC325 power supply unit (PSU), which is the hub of the system and provides connectivity
to the ancillary components and the EC325 digital control panel.

3 Power Supply Details
For the safe operation of all electrical equipment within your Leisure Vehicle it is important that
you read and fully understand these instructions. If you are unsure of any point please contact
your dealer / distributor for advice before use.
The following diagram shows the EC325PSU layout.
WARNING: Under heavy loads the EC325PSU case may become hot. ALWAYS ensure the
ventilation slots and the cooling fan have a clear flow of air. Do not place combustible
materials against / adjacent to the EC325PSU. The PSU will shutdown if overheated and
will restart automatically when cool.
3.1 Battery Charger
The EC325PSU incorporates an intelligent ‘offline’ battery charger that disconnects the leisure
equipment from the battery while it is being charged. This process allows the charger to use
higher charging voltages and to accurately control the charging current. No other equipment may
be connected directly to the battery while charging is taking place. This intelligent battery charger
draws power from the power converter (see 3.4) when the mains 230v supply is turned on and
from the vehicle alternator when the engine is running, therefore the leisure battery is always
charged via the intelligent battery charger.
WARNING: Higher voltages maybe present at the battery (<=18v). Do not connect ANY
equipment to the battery while the charger is operating. Failure to comply with this
warning may lead to equipment damage and will affect the battery charger performance.
The EC325 system also incorporates a battery
compartment temperature sensor (see
photograph), which monitors the battery ambient
temperature to allow the charger to adjust the
charging current if the battery is very cold or hot.

CONNECTION OF SERVICES
3.2 Residual Current Device & Miniature Circuit Breakers
The Residual Current Device (RCD) is basically
provided to protect the user from lethal electric
shock. The RCD will turn off (trip) if the current
flowing in the live conductor does not fully return
down the neutral conductor, i.e. some current is
passing through a person down to earth or
through a faulty appliance.
To ensure the RCD is working correctly, the test
button should be operated each time the vehicle
is connected to the mains supply (see section 5.1)
The Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCB’s) operate in
a similar way to traditional fuses and are provided to protect the wiring installation from overload
or short circuit. If an overload occurs the MCB will switch off the supply. If this occurs you should
investigate the cause of the fault before switching the MCB back on.
The following table shows the rating and circuit allocation for the three MCB’s

3.4 Power Converter
The EC325PSU contains a power converter that powers the leisure equipment when the mains
supply is connected. This module supplies 13.5v DC to the leisure equipment up to a maximum
of 25 Amps (325 Watts).
The power converter also supplies power to the intelligent battery charger, therefore the
available power is distributed between the leisure load and the charger, with the leisure load
taking priority as per the following example:

3.5 Solar Panel Converter
The EC325PSU incorporates a built-in dual channel Solar Regulator that allows the direct
connection of a 20 to 100W solar panel without the need for additional components. The dual
regulator charges both the vehicle and leisure batteries simultaneously and connects to the PSU
via a dedicated connector on the base of the unit (see section 6.2 for details).
A connection harness is available from your dealer, the part number is 59065-07.
3. 6 Fuses
WARNING: When replacing fuses always replace a fuse with the correct value. NEVER
replace with a higher value / rating as this could damage the wiring harness. If a
replacement fuse ‘blows’ do not keep replacing the fuse as you could damage the wiring
harness. Please investigate the fault and contact your dealer.

3.7 Battery
A) Type/ Selection
For optimum performance and safety it is essential that only a proprietary brand LEISURE
battery is used with a typical capacity of 75 to 120 Ah (Ampere / hours). A normal car battery is
NOT suitable. This battery should always be connected when the system is in use. The
EC325PSU is configured at the factory for standard lead acid leisure batteries, however your
dealer can reconfigure the unit to work with Gel batteries if required. The dealer may make a
small charge for undertaking this work. Some vehicle installations can cater for two leisure
batteries connected in parallel. In these cases it is recommended that two identical batteries are
used. The battery feed is fitted with an inline fuse between the battery and the electrical harness,
and is usually located immediately outside the battery compartment or within 500mm of the
battery. The maximum rating of this fuse is 20A per battery.
B) Installation & Removal
Always disconnect the 230v mains supply and turn the EC325PSU charger switch to the OFF (0)
position before removing or installing the battery. 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. Crocodile clips must not be used.
WARNING: Explosive gases may be present at the battery. Take care to prevent flames
and sparks in the vicinity of the battery and do not smoke.
C) Operation / Servicing
Under normal circumstances it should not be necessary to remove the battery other than for
routine inspection of the terminals and “topping up” of the battery fluid where applicable. Please
see instructions supplied with the battery.
Note: Do not over discharge the battery. One of the most common causes of battery failure is
when the battery is discharged below the recommended level of approximately 10v. Discharging
a battery below this figure can cause permanent damage to one or more of the cells within the
battery.
To prevent over discharge, the EC325 system incorporates a battery protect circuit that warns
and then disconnects the batteries when they fall below the following conditions:

cut off
10.9V
Action after cut off
Notes
Battery selection is
changed from Vehicle
battery to leisure
battery. If the leisure
battery is below 6V
then a further warning
will occur (see below).
This cut off level is designed to protect the vehicle
battery from over discharge. The 10.9V level
ensures there is sufficient power in the battery to
run the vehicle electronics and start the vehicle.
This cut off only applies to power drawn from the
battery by the leisure equipment; it will not protect
the battery if you leave the vehicle lights on.
This is an emergency cut off level to protect the
battery from severe damage. You should not rely
on this cut off level during normal operation, but
manage your power consumption to a discharge
level of 10V.

Mains Supply reversed?
.
The reverse polarity light is designed to illuminate when the Live and
Neutral supply has been reversed/crossed over. If the light illuminates
there is a problem with the site supply or the cable connecting the supply
to your vehicle. The light is designed to work on UK electrical supplies
(where the neutral conductor is connected to earth at the sub stattion). If
you are using your vehicle outside the UK this light may illuminate when
no fault axists. In these cases consult the site warden for advice.
Generator being used
The Reverse Polarity warning light is on when using my generator.
This is a normal side effect when using some types of generator. Instead
of connecting the neutral conductor to earth, some generators centre tap
the earth connection making both neutral and live conductors 110V
above earth. This 110V difference causes the neon polarity indicator to
illuminate. In most cases it is still safe to use the generator, but please
consult the generator handbook for further information.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION
Mass in Running Order (MRO)
TECHNICAL DATA
The Mass in Running Order is defined as the
mass of the standard converted vehicle with
bodywork including the following:
Base Vehicle Data
For all matters relating to the base vehicle,
and particularly tyre pressures, refer to the
base vehicle instruction book or if in doubt
consult your local base vehicle commercial
dealer.
•
Coolants (oil and water)
•
90% of automotive fuel
•
Spare wheel
Weights, Dimensions and Capacities
•
Crockery
Before using your Auto-Sleeper you should
be fully conversant with all matters relating to
weights. The following definitions should be
fully understood and then related to the
tabulated base vehicle weight data.
•
Washer fluid
•
Tools
•
Driver (at 75 kg, 11st 12lb)
•
Fire extinguisher
All other optional equipment whether on the
base vehicle or part of the conversion is
excluded from the mass in running order.
Weights
Details of vehicle weights are found below,
and are presented in the manner prescribed
in the European Standard EN1646-2 for
Payloads. All weights are in kilograms (kg).
Mass of the User Payload
The Mass of the User Payload is the
difference between the MPTLM and the
MRO. It is the motor caravans carrying
capacity for everything placed in or on the
vehicle, including the passengers. Please
note that a driver (at 75kg, 11st 12lb) is
included in the MRO. Everything listed in
italics below must be subtracted from the
payload.
Take care to ensure that heavy loads are
stored low down in bed boxes and low
cupboards, and distribute weight evenly side
to side as far as possible.
Note 1: Please take care to ensure that you
have allowed for the masses of all items you
intend to carry in the motor caravan, e.g.
passengers, optional equipment, essential
habitation equipment and personal effects
such as clothing, food, pets, bicycles,
sailboards, sports equipment, etc.
Mass of the Conventional Load
The Conventional Load is the mass of the
passengers carried and must be subtracted
from the payload. The “EC standard person”
weighs 75kg (11st 12lb). The user should
adjust the figure according to the mass and
number of passengers carried. Motorhome
Manufacturers designate passenger seats as
being suitable for travelling, and provide seat
belts accordingly. Multiplying the weight of
the passengers by the number of passengers
gives the Conventional Load. Please note
that a driver (at 75kg, 11st 12lb) is included in
the MRO.
Note 2: Warning - Under no circumstances
should the maximum technically permissible
laden mass of this motor caravan, or its
individual axles, be exceeded.
DEFINITIONS
Maximum Technically Permissible Laden
Mass (MTPLM)
The Maximum Technically Permissible Laden
Mass is a figure given by the manufacturer of
the base vehicle. It is the combined
maximum permitted weight of the vehicle and
all of its contents, both inside and out. The
MTPLM is unaffected by the Auto-Sleeper
conversion.
8-1
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION
Essential Habitation Equipment
Gross Train Mass (GTM)
For the purpose of EN1646-2, the mass of
the Essential Habitation Equipment includes
the mass of the following:
If you are towing a trailer with your AutoSleeper, the Gross Train Weight is the
maximum allowable weight of the towing
vehicle, the trailer and the mass of every item
carried. The GTM is given by the base
vehicle manufacturer and is unaffected by the
Auto-Sleeper conversion. Please check your
driving licence to ensure you are allowed to
drive a vehicle combination at this weight.
•
the LPG cylinders, 90% full.
•
the freshwater tank, 90% full.
•
the water heater system, full.
•
the waste water tank, empty.
•
the toilet system flushing tank, full.
•
the toilet system holding tank, empty.
Maximum Braked Trailer Mass (MBTM)
This is the maximum allowable weight of the
trailer together with its load, provided the
trailer has a braking system, which complies
with the local Construction and Use
Regulations. The MBTM is given by the base
vehicle manufacturer and is unaffected by the
Auto-Sleeper conversion.
All of these must be subtracted from the user
payload.
Auto-Sleepers include the low voltage (230V)
connection cable and the second battery in
the mass in running order.
Options, Personal Effects and
Accessories
MTPLM of the Axles
When options, personal effects and
accessories are fitted or carried the mass
must be subtracted from the user payload. All
optional equipment whether on the base
vehicle or part of the conversion is excluded
from the mass in running order. Personal
effects are any items of any description
carried by the vehicle.
The individual axles also have MTPLM’s. The
sum of the two axle MTPLM’s usually
exceeds the overall vehicle MTPLM, but this
does not mean you can load each axle to its
maximum, because doing so would exceed
the overall MTPLM of the whole vehicle.
To determine accurately if a vehicle is
exceeding one of its maximum technically
permissible laden masses, the vehicle with all
of its load (that is passengers, contents,
luggage and external load) should be
weighed on a weighbridge.
You may wish to allocate the user payload to
suit your own use. For example, to increase
the available payload, the water system may
be emptied. If the vehicle is not being used
for camping the gas bottles can be left at
home to increase the mass available for
other items.

SPINFLO COOKING HOB
To maximise the usage of fitted equipment in
your motorhome it is essential that any
accompanying manufacturers’ literature is
read fully. All recommended maintenance
and preparation procedures should be
followed. The information provided in this
manual is only intended as a guide. If in any
doubt consult your manufacturer appointed
dealer, particularly before attempting to install
extra equipment.
BURNER OPERATION
The burners on this appliance have fixed
aeration and no adjustment is required. 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, a small
amount of yellow tipping will occur and then
slightly increases as the burner heats up.
In the interests of safety, replacement parts
for an appliance shall conform to the
appliance manufacturer’s specifications and
should be fitted by him or his authorised
agent.
Cautions:
•
Although each burner will support pans
from 10 to 22cm, care should be taken
not to overload the appliance as
reduced performance may result.
•
When using small pans the flames
should not spread beyond the base of
the pan as this will reduce the efficiency
of the burner.
•
Avoid old or mis-shapen pans as these
may cause instability.
•
The lid must be opened fully prior to
using the hotplate burners.
Using the hotplate gas 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.

match or taper to the burner and push
the control knob in and hold. It is
necessary to hold the knob depressed
9-1
FITTED EQUIPMENT
after the burner has ignited for 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.
WARNINGS
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
one minute before a further attempt to
ignite the burner is made.
•
Glass lids may shatter when heated.
Turn off all burners before shutting the
lid.
•
Spillage on the surface of the lid
should be removed before opening
the lid.
•
The glass lid has a tendency to snap
shut towards the end of lowering. This
is caused by the travel lock action of
the hinges as it is activated. Make
sure all fingers are removed from
appliance when closing lid.
Do’s and Don’ts
Do
read the user instructions carefully before
using the appliance for the first time.
Do
clean the appliance regularly.
Do
remove spills as soon as they occur.
Do
check that controls are in the off position
when finished.
Do not allow children near the cooker when in
use. Turn pan handles away from the
front so that they cannot be caught
accidentally.
Do not allow fats or oils to build up in the base of
the hotplate.
Do not use abrasive cleaners or powders that
will scratch the surfaces of the hotplate.
5. For simmering, turn the knob further anticlockwise to the low rate position.
6. To turn off: Turn the control knob 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

Best results will be obtained by the shelf
positions in this guide - please see chart on
next page. It is not necessary to preheat the
oven but advisable for a range of dishes. The
oven is capable of full temperature in 15-20
minutes.
Most cookery books give details of the shelf
positions and gas mark settings for each
recipe. If in doubt about a recipe you intend
to use, study the recipe carefully then find a
similar dish in our guide and use our shelf
position and gas mark setting
recommendation. Shelf positions are from the
top down. When roasting with aluminium foil
care must be taken that the foil does not
impair circulation or block the oven flue
outlet.
4. Place the oven shelf in the required
position and close the door. Set control
knob to approximately gas mark 5 and
heat the oven door for about 30 minutes
to eliminate any residual factory
lubricants that might impart unpleasant
smells to the meals being cooked. A nontoxic smoke may occur when using for
the first time so open any windows and
turn on mechanical ventilators to help
remove the smoke.
Important: Always ensure food is properly
cooked prior to serving.
5. Although the oven door does heat up
quickly, it is recommended that a 10
minute preheat be allowed. The oven
should be up to full temperature in about
15-20 minutes.
Do’s and Don’ts
Do
read the user instructions carefully
before using the appliance for the
first time.
Do
allow the oven to heat before using
for the first time, in order to expel any
smells before the introduction of
food.
Do
clean the appliance regularly.
Do
remove spills as soon as they occur.
Do
always use oven gloves when
removing food shelves and trays
from the oven.
Do
check that controls are in the off
position when finished.
Do not allow children near the cooker when
in use. All outer surfaces will get hot
when in use.
Do not allow fats or oils to build up in the
oven trays or base.
Do not use abrasive cleaners or powders
that will scratch the surfaces of the
appliance.
Do not under any circumstances use the
oven as a space heater.
Do not put heavy objects onto open grill and
oven doors.
6. To turn off: Turn the control knob
clockwise until the circle on the control
knob is aligned with the dot on the control
panel.
7. To remove a shelf, pull forward until it
stops, raise at front and remove.
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 following table. 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.

Leaks
OMNIVENT ELECTRIC
EXTRACTOR FAN (optional)
If a smell of gas becomes apparent, the
supply should be turned off at the cylinder
IMMEDIATELY. Extinguish naked lights
including cigarettes and pipes. Do not
operate electrical switches. Open all doors
and 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 unlit appliance. Never check for
leaks with a naked flame, leak investigation
should be carried out using a leak detector
spray.
An Omnivent may be fitted as an optional
extra in place of the MPK roof vent. It
features a hinged roof vent operated by a
knob. The vent incorporates a 2-way fan
motor; its preferred method of operation may
be selected by a rocker switch incorporated
into the body of the vent. Switch positions
represent the following loading:
Position 1
1.6 amps
Position 2
2.2 amps
Position 3
3.6 amps
Note: Ensure the fan is switched off when
the vent is closed.
SEITZ CONCERTINA BLINDS
The windows of the habitation area are fitted
with concertina blinds and flyscreens.
The flyscreens pull down from the top, the
concertina blinds up from the base and a
combination of both may be achieved by
clipping both units together in the centre to
adopt the required position. It should be
remembered that both the flyscreens and
concertina blinds are relatively delicate and
those in the living area should be treated with
care. They should be kept in a dry and dustfree state, it is advised that the mechanisms
are only lightly lubricated when they become
a little stiff and inoperative - otherwise no
maintenance is needed.
The concertina blinds are manufactured from
a paper type material and thus cleaning
solvents and aerosols should be kept well
clear from them.
Unlike Seitz roller blinds, they will not need to
be re-tensioned - any problems that should
arise should be addressed to your AutoSleeper dealer or the Motorhome Service
Centre at Willersey.

room temperature). The gas burner is not
enabled until the power requirement is
higher, and is the first to switch off during
heat-up operations.
WARM AIR & HOT WATER
HEATING
A Truma liquid gas Combi 4E warm-air
heater, with integrated hot water boiler, is
fitted in the base of the wardrobe unit. It
operates on LPG and/or 230V electricity
depending on the chosen mode of operation.
Summer operation (boiler operation only)
Gas operation or 230V electrical operation is
used for hot water preparation. The water
temperature can be set to 40 degºC or 60ºC.
In winter operation the heater can be used to
heat the room and simultaneously warm
water. If only warm water is required, select
summer operation.
With gas operation the water is heated at the
lowest burner setting. Once the water
temperature is reached, the burner switches
off.
At a temperature of approximately 3 deg C
the automatic frost control safety/drain valve
will open and drain the boiler.
Depending on the fuse protection at the
camping site, power of 900W (3.9A) or
1800w (7.8A) can be manually selected for
electrical operation.
Three different options are available for
operating the unit.
Gas operation only: Propane/butane for
autonomous use.
Note: Mixed operation is not possible. With
this setting the unit automatically selects
electrical operation. The gas burner is not
enabled.
Electrical operation only: 230V for stationary
use on camp sites.
Mixed operation: Gas and electrical operation
- only possible in winter mode.
Winter operation
In winter operation, the unit automatically
selects the required power setting according
to the temperature difference between the
temperature set on the control panel and the
current room temperature. When the boiler is
filled, the water is automatically heated as
well. The water temperature depends on the
selected operation mode and the heater
output.
All three energy selection options can be
used for winter deployment.
With gas operation the unit automatically
selects the output level that is required.
Depending on the fuse protection at the
camping site, power of 900W (3.9A) or
1800W (7.8A) can be manually selected for
electrical operation.
If more output is required (e.g. heating up or
low outside temperatures) gas or mixed
operation should be selected so that enough
heating power is always available.

switches itself off and on again when
defrosted, and resets the internal timer.
Introduction
Your vehicle is fitted with a Thetford Premium
LCD absorption type refrigerator. The control
panel allows you to select your preferred
energy source and cooling level.
There is normally no need to manually
defrost the refrigerator.
Door locking mechanism
Cold space
The refrigerator door has an automatic
locking mechanism. The door locks
automatically when you press it firmly shut.
The mechanism keeps the door shut while
driving.
Cooling fins are located on the inside of the
refrigerator and the absorption system uses
these to withdraw heat from the refrigerator.
Therefore, never cover these fins with plastic
or paper. Air must be able to circulate freely
through the refrigerator so that the heat can
be extracted.
OPERATION
Before first use it is recommended that the
inside of the refrigerator is cleaned, and that
it is allowed to operate for at least eight hours
before putting any food into it.
To limit frosting on the cooling fins:
•
Always cover liquid foods before placing
them in the refrigerator
•
Always let hot food cool before placing it
in the refrigerator
•
Do not keep refrigerator door open longer
than necessary
Smart Energy Selection
Your refrigerator is equipped with Smart
Energy Selection (SES) which means that it
will automatically select the best power source
available. When you start the refrigerator you
should usually select the AUTO mode, and the
refrigerator will then apply the following
priority: mains voltage (230V), direct current
(12V), liquid gas. The system will always try to
operate using the highest priority energy
source available. If a fault occurs with one
energy source the system will automatically
switch to the next available. If no energy
sources are available, the blue LED will flash
and show an error code.
Freezer compartment
The freezer compartment is not suitable for
freezing foods although it will maintain the
temperature of already frozen food.
Ice cubes are best made at night when the
refrigerator has less work to do and has more
reserves.
Automatic defrosting cycle
All LCD refrigerators have an automatic
defrosting cycle which is activated at the end
of each 49 hours of operation. The system

Note: If the refrigerator has been
manually set to operate on 12V, it will not
automatically switch to another energy
source when the engine is not running. In
this case the refrigerator will stop cooling.
Powering with gas
Powering with gas can be selected by the
AUTO mode or manually.

Important Note:
• It is prohibited to use gas to power the
refrigerator while you are driving. If a
road accident results in a fire, there is
danger of an explosion.
• It is prohibited to use gas to power the
refrigerator in the vicinity of petrol

Winter operation
Maintenance checklist
If you use the refrigerator when the outdoor
temperature is below 8oC, install the Thetford
vent winter/storage cover (see fig A) on the
ventilation grills. The cover, which is available
from your dealer, protects your refrigerator
from excessively cold air. It is also advisable
to fit the cover if you are not going to use the
vehicle for a long period.
•
Your refrigerator will give years of
trouble-free use if you run through this
check list regularly:
•
Keep the refrigerator clean
•
Check that the refrigerator is defrosting
itself regularly
•
Check the door closing mechanism
regularly, as previously described.
•
Make sure that the ventilation grills are
not blocked.
•
Regularly clean the ventilation grills.
Vent screen
The vent has a screen to prevent bugs from
entering the combustion area of the
refrigerator. These vents need to be cleaned
regularly to ensure a good airflow. When the
refrigerator performs poorly due to high
external temperatures the vents can be
removed to improve the airflow and hence
cooling performance.

Emptying the waste holding tank
The cassette capacity is approx. 17 litres and
the tank should be emptied when the wastelevel warning device comes on. This will
occur when the tank contains more than 15
litres of waste.
Note: After the warning device comes on, the
capacity remaining is equal to approximately
5 uses.
Features:
Rotatable bowl.
Handgrip.
•
CAUTION (step 4): Warmer weather or
longer intervals between emptying the waste
tank may require additional toilet fluid. Use
only Thetford toilet fluid to achieve the best
results. Never add toilet fluid directly into the
toilet bowl.
The cassette is located underneath the toilet
and is removed for emptying from the outside
of the vehicle through an access door. A
rotating pour-out spout, automatic holding
tank vent, air release valve, valve blade,
carrying handles and hand grips are
incorporated into the cassette. A sliding
cover guarantees optimum hygiene.
Removable seat and cover.
•
Following is a brief illustrated step by step
guide. For more detailed information please
refer to manufacturers literature.
The toilet section includes a rotatable bowl, a
removable seat, and a control unit with a
flush button and a waste level warning
device. The valve blade handle is located
under the bowl.
•
Vent button: vents the cassette to avoid
splashing while emptying.
Preparing for use
The Thetford Cassette C-200 CWE is
constructed of high quality plastics for
durability and has a high gloss finish that is
easy to clean and maintain. The unit
consists of two sections, a permanently
installed toilet system and a slide out waste
holding tank - the Cassette.
•
•
CAUTION: Do not allow the waste cassette
to become overfilled. See trouble shooting
section for emergency emptying procedure.
Note: Some vehicles are equipped with
water pumps supplying high water pressure,
which can result in having an over flushing
problem. It is possible to use the flow
restrictor supplied with the toilet (packed
together with the instruction manual) by
installing it in the water tube at the
connection level.
Rinse the holding tank with clean water.
Prepare the cassette for use again by
following steps 1 to 6. Replace the holding
tank and lock the access door.

FITTED EQUIPMENT
Winterising/Storage
The Thetford Cassette C-200 CWE is easily
winterised for storage. If the toilet is
connected to a separate water tank, drain the
tank. When the motorhome water tank is
empty, press the flush button until the water
stops flowing. Empty the cassette. If the
toilet is connected to a central water tank,
open the electric valve by pushing the flush
button while draining the water supply
system of the motorhome. Empty the
cassette. Leave the blade of the cassette
open. Do not replace cap on spout, this helps
to keep the cassette dry.
13 - Carry the holding tank to a normal
household toilet or authorised disposal
point. Place holding tank in vertical
position and rotate pour-out spout
upwards.
Cold weather use
The cassette can be used in cold weather
when the motorhome is heated. When the
vehicle is not heated for more than a day (or
a night), winterise the cassette.
High Altitude and hot weather use
Changes in altitude during driving, and large
temperature variations give no problems as
long as the cassette is inserted into the toilet.
The automatic cassette vent will depressurise
that tank when there is over or under
pressure. High temperatures may require
additional Thetford toilet fluid.
14 - Remove measuring cap. Grasp
unit by upper carrying handle nearest
pour-out spout. Place other hand on
upper rear hand grip so that the vent
button can be depressed with thumb
while emptying. This ensures a smooth
outflow of tank contents.
Cleaning and maintenance
To clean the seal and blade, the use of
Thetford bathroom cleaner and rinse with
water is recommended. Alternatively, use a
luke warm solution of diluted washing up
liquid. Do not use household cleaners as
they may damage the seals and other toilet
parts.
Dry the seal and blade thoroughly and spray
economically with silicone spray, alternatively
use olive oil. Do not use Vaseline or other
vegetable oil products.
The toilet bowl, seat, cover and the exterior
of the toilet unit and cassette can be cleaned
with a mild detergent/water mixture.
15 - Once the pump has been cleared
of water place appropriate size
container under the drain plug. Empty
any remaining water from the fresh
water tank by taking out the drain plug.
Clean the seals and lubricate them
where appropriate after drying.

Insulation
EQUIPMENT ARRANGEMENT
The Broadway EL Duo is insulated largely in
polystyrene, a material with high insulation
qualities. This is used in the construction of
the floor, body sides, rear panel and ceiling,
and contributes greatly to the insulation
qualities.
Windows and Ventilation
Double glazed acrylic windows are fitted as
standard to all lower caravan windows. These
top hinged windows allow excellent
ventilation and are secured by locking over
centre catches. They may be kept open in a
variety of positions by use of the ratchet. To
unlock the catch, depress the button in the
centre of the handle stays and turn.
Stainless Steel Sink and Drainer
The Broadway is fitted with an MPK roof light
in the kitchen area and a Seitz Heki 3 roof
ventilator in the main living area, which can
be raised or lowered to the required height.
The stainless steel sink and drainer should
only be cleaned with light detergent. Under
no circumstances should bleach be used
since this will react adversely with the
stainless steel and may cause small holes in
the metal. Immediately beneath the sink is a
slide-out cutlery drawer. The chrome mixer
tap has a small rubber end cap to eliminate
water droplets marking the work surface
whilst in transit. A waste bin is incorporated
beneath the sink unit with a stainless steel
spice rack fitted on the adjacent wall.
MPK Roof Light
Storage
The large MPK roof light is fitted with a night
blind and flyscreen; the small one in the
shower has a flyscreen only. These vents
give generous ventilation when required.
Each has a hinged flyscreen, and moving the
adjustment handle to the required position
operates the five-way opening facility.
Above the fridge, a pull-out flap may be
extended, designed as an extra work surface,
television platform etc. It is retained in its
stowed position with an internal catch. It is
not recommended to travel with this worktop
extended nor of course with any items
thereon.
Roof Ventilation
Habitation Battery
A Heki 3 roof ventilator, with blind and
flyscreen, is fitted in the main living area.
When the vehicle is being driven the roof
ventilator should be fully closed. Wind noise
may be reduced by closing the night blind
(see Appliance Section for operating
instructions). Further ventilation is provided
by an MPK roof ventilator incorporating a
night blind and flyscreen. For cleaning, the
blind and flyscreen may be hinged down and/
or the unit unclipped from the ventilator unit.
There is a further smaller MPK roof ventilator
in the shower.
This is located beneath the rear seat on the
offside of the vehicle. Access is gained by
removing the wooden cover to the battery
box which is retained by small screws. The
battery is a 110AH 12V, low maintenance,
leisure battery which should only require
attention at the annual habitation service.
The top hinged acrylic windows must be
locked closed, or in their intermediate
travelling position, whilst the vehicle is in
motion.
Ventilation
If a replacement habitation battery should be
required then it is important that the
replacement be of the same type and
specification as that originally fitted.
WARNING: Switch off all appliances and
lamps before connecting or disconnecting
the habitation battery.
Do not obstruct the ventilators fitted - your
safety depends upon them.

Retrofit Options
Whilst this list is not comprehensive, below
are listed suitable retrofit options. Contact
either your local Auto-Sleeper dealer or the
Motorhome Service Centre, Willersey for
further details.
A Sargent EC325 Power Control System is
fitted in the back of the wardrobe. It features
a built in intelligent ‘offline’ battery charger, a
system monitoring circuit and a digital control
panel with scrolling menus. For a full
description of this unit including operating
instructions and fault finding, refer to the
Connection of Services section.
•
Cycle Rack. The Fiamma Pro C cycle
rack is recommended, the rear panel of
the Broadway EL Duo being reinforced
with bonded timbers at the appropriate
mounting points.
•
Top Box. The Fiamma Ultra 2 top box
may be retrofitted; securing straps
utilising the roof rack are suggested
rather than penetrating the roof with
fixing bolts.
•
Air Conditioning. The Dometic B2200 is
recommended for air conditioning in the
living area.
•
Fiamma Back Box. The Fiamma Ultrabox
360 is recommended utilising the rails on
the Pro C cycle rack for support.
•
Tow Bars. At the time of printing this
handbook, no tow bar is currently
available for the Broadway - please
contact us at Willersey for further details
of the retrofitting of a Watling Engineering
Tow Bar, which is under development.
•
Rear Ladder. A double folding aluminium
ladder, the Omni-ladder deluxe
19101200, made from oval section
anodised aluminium with stainless steel
fittings, is recommended for use on this
vehicle.
Electrical - General
The 230V AC sockets fitted to your vehicle
are suitable only for medium demand
components such as televisions and
hairdryers. Safety/overload protection is
provided by the MCBs in the electrical control
box in the back of the wardrobe.
An EM50 electrical interface adaptor box is
located on the bulkhead behind the driver’s
seat. This contains fuses and relays for
systems connected directly to the base
vehicle electrical system and these are
unlikely to require attention from the owner.
The mains hook up cable, provided as

CARE OF YOUR MOTORHOME
remove the flatting marks created by the
abrasive paper. For deep gouge type
scratches, where the paint or gel may have
been penetrated, you should first seek the
advice of your supplying Auto-Sleeper dealer.
GENERAL
In order to keep your Auto-Sleeper in first
class condition, periodic maintenance will be
required to both the bodywork, windows,
upholstery and other parts of the conversion.
This maintenance should be carried out as
follows:
Removing Scratches from Acrylic
Windows
All windows, except the chassis cab and
Luton, are manufactured in acrylic. Over time
these become scratched and their clarity
impaired. An Acrylic Window Polish removes
unwanted scratches and blemishes leaving a
clear, haze free finish. Minor scratches can
be polished out directly.
Servicing
Servicing of the conversion is the
responsibility of your local franchised AutoSleeper dealer to whom all queries should be
referred. Your local base vehicle commercial
dealer should carry out servicing of the base
vehicle.
Recommended Materials
GLASSFIBRE BODYWORK AND
ACRYLIC WINDOWS
G3 Paste Compound: This is a cutting
compound and polish, recommended for use
on painted surfaces and GRP. It is ideal for
removing the traffic film that builds up on
glassfibre coachwork and not only restores it
to its former glory, but adds a high level of
polish as well.
General Cleaning
At regular intervals, you should wash the
fibreglass bodywork with a recognised
cleaner for use on fibreglass gel coats.
Should marks remain, use a cleaner with
chemical and abrasion agents formulated for
use on gel coats.
G10 Extra Fine Grade Liquid: This is again
ideal for polishing surfaces and removes swirl
marks and very fine scratches. It is less
abrasive than G3 yet has the same polish
properties and cleans and restores
discoloured surfaces. It is ideal for use on
dark colours.
Discolouration
Fading or discolouration of the gel coat is a
natural ageing process caused by ultraviolet
light. To overcome this, use a mild abrasive,
which removes a thin layer of the discoloured
surface. This will restore the bodywork to its
original colour and surface lustre. Since
discolouration develops gradually, it should
not be necessary to carry out this procedure
more than every three years. Frequent use of
abrasive materials can reduce the thickness
of the gel coat, to a potentially harmful extent.
Black Top Hand Glaze: This is ideal for use
on stains, vinyls, body mouldings and
provides a long lasting high gloss finish. It is
resistant to car wash and abrasive solvents
and is easy to apply. Economical in use, only
a small amount is needed to give a very fine
finish.
Finishing Cloths: These are very fine grade
cloths, woven and thus easily washable that
are recommended by Farecia for use with
their materials.
Removing Scratches from Bodywork
Scratches can be removed from both gel and
painted surfaces. The method depends upon
the depth of the scratch, as care has to be
taken to avoid penetrating the paint or gel
coat. Very fine, hairline scratches can be
removed by rubbing across the line of the
scratch with rubbing compound. Slightly
deeper scratches should be lightly wet
sanded first using very fine (1200 grit or finer)
abrasive paper. Rubbing compound will then

UPHOLSTERY MAINTENANCE
STAINLESS STEEL
COMPONENTS
Cleaning
External
Upholstery should be brushed or vacuumed
regularly. Fabrics should be wiped every six
to eight weeks with a lint free cloth and fabric
cleaning fluid. Velour materials may be drycleaned.
In the event of discolouration of the stainless
steel ladder, this should be removed with TCut or any other mild abrasive and the
surface protected with WD40 or a similar
product.
Fabric Care
Internal
Fabric snags caused by sharp objects such
as toys, nails, etc., should be trimmed off
immediately. Never attempt to pull them off
since this could cause the snag to run.
Do not clean stainless steel fittings, i.e.
splash plate and sinks with bleach since this
reacts with the stainless steel and may lead
to corrosion.
Whenever possible, avoid exposing the
upholstery to direct sunlight which might
eventually cause the colour to fade.
Furniture
Furniture should be cleaned with a
proprietary furniture polish periodically. Any
watermarks that may occur on the hardwood
edging of the furniture units should be
removed by use of fine grade wire wool and
furniture wax.
Fabrics with a velour type pile finish will
develop crush marks in use - this is
unavoidable and does not affect the quality of
the product in any way.
Stain Removal
Heavy stains may need to be sanded out and
the edging re-polished with a proprietary
varnish (Ronseal etc.). The high gloss finish
is achieved by using wire wool and wax.
A proprietary dry cleaning fluid will remove
most household stains. However, stubborn
stains, such as coffee, wine or ice-cream
may need pre-treatment with a mild soap and
distilled water.
GAS INSTALLATION
Small marks in velour type fabrics can
usually be removed by stroking along the pile
using a small brush and warm water.
All gas vents and flue pipes should be
periodically checked for damage and should
be kept free from dirt.
We strongly recommend that before
commencing any treatment an inconspicuous
piece of material is tested for colourfastness
and shinkage. If in doubt, please contact a
professional dry cleaning company. Do not
apply cleaning solvents to velour piping,
otherwise the flock will be removed.
Blocking of vents or flues is extremely
hazardous and should be avoided at all
times.
Gas Appliance Igniters
It is advisable, periodically, to check visually
the igniters on hobs, grills and ovens are
sparking correctly.
Work Surfaces
Laminated work surfaces are fitted to the
tops of all furniture units. Whilst these are
hard wearing, hot pans should not be placed
directly on these surfaces, since damage
may result.
Annual Inspection
The gas installations should be inspected
annually by qualified personnel. If in doubt
contact your supplying Auto-Sleeper dealer.
Modifications to the gas systems should not
take place unless carried out by qualified
technicians.

SEAT RESTRAINTS
WINTERISATION
WARNING: In the event of any impact of
25 mph or over in which seat belts have
been worn, they must be replaced before
the vehicle is used again.
General
WATER SYSTEM
This section contains information on the
winterisation of your Auto-Sleeper,
particularly when you may wish to lay up your
vehicle for the winter months.
Fresh Water Tank
Water System
At regular intervals, and at least every three
months, the fresh water system should be
flushed through with fresh water. Furthermore
it is advisable that prior to using your AutoSleeper, the fresh water system is thoroughly
flushed with fresh water.
The water system should be fully emptied
and the drain taps on both the fresh water
tank and waste water tank left in the open
position. Likewise, all internal taps should be
left open and the water pump run until the
last traces of water have come out of the
taps. Purely as a precaution, against very
severe freezing conditions, the water filter
that is attached to the water pump on the
outlet side should be removed and cleared of
all water. In doing so it will give you the
opportunity of cleaning it, if necessary, ready
for the coming season. Remove all sink plugs
to allow the water system to breathe.
Waste Water Tank
Since the waste water tank can hold foreign
matter, it should be regularly flushed with
fresh water. To prevent odours working back
through the shower and sink outlets, flush the
waste tank through with a small amount of
mild disinfectant.
Flush fully the waste water tank to remove
any excess debris and waste material. Flush
through again with disinfectant as part of the
final drain. Leave drain tap open.
Depending on the use of the waste tank, it is
possible that this will collect solid waste
matter, which in some instances may build up
and block the waste tank outlet tap. In this
case it will be necessary to drop the tank for
cleaning. Access is through a large diameter
fitting in the tank top. Once removed this will
allow the tank to be flushed out in an inverted
position and all solids removed.
Upholstery
We advise that any detachable upholstery is
removed and taken indoors during prolonged
winter storage, particularly detachable upper
bed mattresses and scatter cushions.
Curtains/Blinds
To prevent uneven bleaching, and possible
excess sunlight onto the furniture and fabrics,
we recommend that either the curtains or
blinds are left drawn.
Refrigerator
Leave the refrigerator door open, on its
intermediate lock position; this will allow the
refrigerator to breathe and prevent any
unpleasant odours in the storage department.
Ventilation
There is fixed upper and lower ventilation in
your Auto-Sleeper which is built-in in the
interests of safety. There is therefore no need
to leave any windows or roof ventilators ajar -
10-3
CARE OF YOUR MOTORHOME
indeed the roof ventilators have sufficient
fixed ventilation to allow the interior of the
vehicle to breathe satisfactorily.
Automotive
Exterior
•
Secure the vehicle using chocks.
Release the handbrake to prevent the
brake linings from seizing on.
•
Increase the tyre pressure (by
approximately 2 bar above the
standard pressure) to prevent the
tyres from becoming flat.
Follow the advice laid down by the base
vehicle manufacturer. In particular,
Fit, where appropriate, the Electrolux winter
covers to the fridge ventilators. Give your
Auto-Sleeper a good wash and polish before
laying up, and apply a small film of protective
oil to the stainless steel roof rack, ladder and
any other external polished metal
components.
WARNING: Do not exceed the
maximum pressure noted on the
sidewall of the tyre.
Electrical
Turn the electrical system off at the control
panel. After a period of non-use the system
will set itself to ‘sleep mode’. To re-activate
the system simply touch the screen.
Alternatively, jack up the vehicle to
relieve the load on the tyres.
Peugeot recommend that if the vehicle is to
be parked up for a period of more than one
month then it is advisable to disconnect the
main vehicle battery. For full instructions on
the correct procedure refer to the Peugeot
handbook supplied with the vehicle and look
for the section covering the battery. If this
advice is followed, bear in mind that the
remote central locking will not function,
although it will still be possible to unlock and
lock the doors manually using the key.
To maintain the vehicle battery in good
condition it is recommended that it is fully
charged prior to storage and then recharged
every 3 months.
Windows
Open all windows fully. Check all window
seals are intact and shut firmly. Ensure locks
and over centre catches are applied as
appropriate.
10-4
•
Cover the tyres to protect from sunlight,
as they will deteriorate rapidly in ultraviolet light. A light proof cover will help to
prevent cracking of sidewalls and
premature ageing.
•
Check coolant for antifreeze protection,
correct as required.
•
Check windscreen and headlamp
cleaning systems for antifreeze
protection, correct as required.

SECTION 8 - GAS SYSTEMS
Cylinders, Regulators and Feed Hoses
Establish that the cylinder and feed hose is
compatible.
Where apprpriate, remove cover(s) to
gain access to heat exchanger. Clean
away any fluff or foreign matter.
Reassemble and test. Clean flame
viewing window.
Controls
•
Since the introduction of BS EN1949 the gas
pressures for Butane (blue) cylinders and
propane (red) cylinders have been
harmonised across Europe. The gas system
pressure is now 30mbar for both gases.
The gas regulator is now fitted as standard
equipment by Auto-Sleepers. Your supplying
dealer will need to supply you with the correct
hose compatible with the cylinder to be fitted.
Check that all knobs etc. work smoothly
and are secure on their spindles. If gas
taps require greasing to ease stiffness,
use only approved LPG grease. Check
that appliances can be brought into
service using the normal controls.
Correct Flame Structure
•
Check cylinder compartment vents and gas
drop hole in floor are free from obstruction.
Check that all pilot flames burn quietly
and clearly.
Refrigerator: With the refrigerator gas control
turned to maximum, the colour of the flame
should be predominantly blue.
Check seals on internal doors.
Instantaneous Water Heating: The main
burner flame should be of even height and
blue in colour. A flame burning yellow will
allow sooting to occur.
Hose and Piping
Check any flexible hose is of an approved
type. Check its condition and any evidence of
cracking.
Ovens: The oven flame should burn quietly
and be of even height, mainly blue/green in
colour. If the gas is propane, the flame will
normally develop yellow tips as the burner
heats up. If the gas is butane, a small amount
of yellow tipping will be seen immediately
after lighting, increasing as the burner heats
up.
The maximum permissible hose length is
400mm, longer hoses should not be used.
The hose length is the length of the flexible
portion of the hose assembly. Do not use
external cylinders and or extension hoses.
Check piping for condition, damage and
correct support.
Carry out an overall leak test.
Grill Burners: It is normal for the flames on
this type of burner to develop yellow tips as it
heats up, particularly on butane.
General: A flame lifting away from the
burners is an indication of too high a
12-4
SERVICE DETAILS
pressure, although it may happen with grill
burners whilst the frets are heating up. A
yellow flame will cause sooting and is an
indication of too low a pressure. Providing
the regulator and piping have been checked
and found satisfactory, the above faults
should not appear.
SECTION 9 - WATER SYSTEM
Flues:
Check the external filler and filler pipe to tank.
•
Check for satisfactory venting.
Before operating the water system, a visual
check of the following items may show up an
obvious leak source...
Fresh Water Tank/Container
Check condition, fill tank and check for leaks.
Flues should be examined for security of
fixing and for correct attachment to
appliances and flue terminals. They
should be free from damage and
corrosion. Check for leakage of flue
gases into the vehicle.
Check condition and presence of filler cap.
Waste Water Tank
Check drain tap is clear and working.
Check condition and presence of drain hose.
(The water tank will be drained, flushed,
cleaned and charged with a measure of toilet
fluid/disinfectant at the prior request of the
customer).
Flame Failure Device (FFD):
•
Where fitted, FFD should be checked to
ensure satisfactory operation. After the
appliance has been successfully
checked, allow time for the thermocouple
to cool. Attempt to relight the appliance
by turning it on wihtout pushing in the
gas control knob. (Do not override the
FFD). If appliance does not light, FFD is
satisfactory.
Pump Filter
When applicable, remove filter and replace.
Check the in-line pump for security and
condition. Remove the submersible pump
from tank, check condition.
Check pump inlet and outlet are clear and not
obstructed.

AUTO-SLEEPERS SERVICE
CENTRE ANNUAL HABITATION
CHECK
Introduction
It is recommended that every 12 months the
habitation side of your motorhome is
inspected by qualified technicians. Attached
to this brief, is a list of all the points that are
checked.
A few customers are of the belief that this
check includes rectification of faults. It is
stressed that this is not the case, the annual
service is a check only of the habitation
aspect of the motorhome.
If faults are found, the technician will advise
you, the customer, of the fault and the
recommended course of action to resolve
this.
Servicing is not included in this check.
All facilities are run and tested through their
operational envelope. For example, the flame
propagation on the refrigerator and other
main gas appliances (where visible) is
checked. If the flame is burning a wrong
colour or burning too far from the jet, we
again advise you, the customer, as to how
this should be rectified.
We also recommend and are only too happy
to arrange for the refrigerator of your AutoSleeper to be checked here at the Service
Centre by a qualified Dometic engineer. In
this instance we call upon Leisure Appliances
and Repairs of Hereford who come, by
appointment, to carry out the necessary
work.
The only component that is changed during
the course of the annual check is the flexible
gas hose, the hose that leads from the
bulkhead fitting in the gas compartment to
the gas regulator.
A further aspect of the test is a gas pressure
test.
