All the illustrations and descriptive matter in this handbook are intended to give a general idea of the motorhome. Changing market and supply situations and our policy of continuous product development may prevent us from maintaining the exact specifications detailed in this handbook. We therefore reserve the right to alter specifications as materials and conditions demand.

Dealers are not agents of Swift Group Limited, the manufacturer of Swift Group motorhomes and have absolutely no authority to bind the manufacturer by any express or implied undertaking or representation.

All motorhomes (other than the engine, chassis cab and associated parts referred to in this handbook which are subject to the relevant chassis manufacturer’s warranty) have a 3 year

SuperSure manufacturer’s warranty from the date of purchase (or hire purchase), which is subject to a chargeable annual service and inspection being carried out at an authorised

Swift Group Service Centre.

During the warranty period, subject to the exclusions set out in this section of the handbook, the manufacturer, Swift Group Limited, will repair (or at its option, replace) all defective parts of the motorhome. For any engine, chassis cab and associated parts warranty issues please contact your local Fiat Agent.

The manufacturer will honour the warranty until

36 months from the date of sale, provided that the motorhome has been serviced annually within 90 days before or 60 days after each anniversary of the original date of sale. The third service must, however, be carried out before the expiry of the 36 month period from the original date of sale.

In the first 12 months the warranty will cover:

Faults arising from a manufacturing defect but not those which are a result of normal wear and tear or those which relate to replacement light bulbs and leisure battery.

Also not covered under the first year are faults resulting from accidental damage or damage caused by misuse of any component part of the motorhome.

In the years two and three the warranty will cover:

1. All original components of the motorhome including permanently fitted equipment forming part of the manufacturer’s original specification.

2. Water ingress and body delamination

In order to comply with the warranty, you must have your motorhome inspected and serviced by an authorised Swift Group Service Centre at least once per year.

It is important that the owner’s handbook is stamped on the appropriate page by the authorised Swift Group Service Centre.

Failure to do this will invalidate the warranty and the transfer of the warranty on the change of ownership.

The inspection should take approximately two hours and will cover the areas dealt with in the annual service check list. Any areas requiring service and/or maintenance will be highlighted by your dealer and we recommend that you authorise any necessary work to be carried out.

NB. It is essential, to validate the warranty, that an annual inspection be carried out by an authorised Swift Group Service Centre covering the items listed.

Just as the engine/gearbox/roadwheels need regular servicing by your chassis dealer, so there are components in your conversion that need regular maintenance by your motorhome dealer.

These include the gas and electrical systems and the seals in the bodywork. Your dealer will complete the record in this handbook to show that the work has been carried out.

1. Damp and lamination test.

2. Chassis and chassis to body security.

3. Corner steadies.

4. Motorhome step.

5. Road lights, wiring and reflectors.

6. Internal lights and 12V DC system.

HandBooKS (cHaSSIS & converter)

Before using a motorhome all aspects of the handbooks, produced by the chassis manufacturer and the converter, must be read and adhered to.

The separate chassis manufacturer handbook refers to your motorhome chassis and base vehicle including care and maintenance.

envIronment

Care and consideration should be taken to protect the environment.

Observe the Country and Coastal Codes.

tHe country code

Enjoy the countryside but respect its life and work.

More people than ever before are exploring the countryside, interested in farming, plant life, bird watching or just observing the general wildlife. Whatever your interest, there is a lot to learn, but please observe the following code:

1. Guard against all risk of fires. Hay and heathland catch alight easily and once ablaze are very difficult to put out.

rememBer: fIre SpreadS quIcKLy.

2. Fasten all gates.

3. Keep your dog under proper control.

4. Keep to the paths across farm land.

5. Avoid damaging fences, hedges and walls.

6. Leave no litter.

7. Safeguard water supplies.

8. Protect wildlife, wild plants and trees.

9. Go carefully on country roads.

10. Respect the life of the countryside.

tHe coaStaL code

As our coastlines are increasingly used for recreation and education, the following suggestions are made to enable us to enjoy our inheritance and preserve it for posterity.

disturbance may mean deatH.

DO NOT trample about, or move rocks unnecessarily.

DO NOT frighten seals or seabirds.

DO NOT spill detergents, solvents or fuel from boats as these can kill marine life.

When sailing, moderate your speed - the wash from a fast boat can destroy banks and nests.

Live molluscs and crustaceans need not be collected as souvenirs - dead shells can usually be found.

Shellfish can take years to grow and fines can be imposed for not observing national regulations.

DO NOT pull up seaweeds unnecessarily.

Make your visit instructive - not destructive.

Look at material - don’t remove it. Take notes and photographs, not specimens.

Observe by-laws and be considerate to others.

National Trust property and Country Parks have regulations to protect the wildlife. Follow these and the Country and Coastal Codes.

motorHome termS mass in running order:

This is the mass of the motorhome as stated by the manufacturer, i.e. ex works weight including the driver with 90% fuel / fresh water / gas capacity and standard fixtures and fittings, in compliance with European Directive 92/21/EEC

(Masses and Dimensions).

Note: Quoted MRO is subject to tolerance, due to weight variation of materials used in

Motorhome construction.

maximum user payload:

The maximum allowable weight to be put into the motorhome whilst it is being driven. This is made up of 4 sections:

Personal effects, conventional load, optional equipment and essential habitation equipment.

The Maximum User Payload is the difference between the Maximum Technically Permissible

Laden Mass and the Mass in Running Order.

personal effects:

Those items which a user can choose to carry in a motorhome and which are not included as Essential Habitation Equipment or Optional equipment.

conventional Load:

A mass allowance for each designated passenger seat.

optional equipment:

Items made available by the manufacturer over and above the standard specification of the motorhome.

essential Habitation:

A mass allowance for liquids in systems not accounted for within the MRO.

maximum technically permissible

Laden mass:

The maximum weight for which the motorhome is designed for normal use when being driven on a road, laden.

This mass takes into account specific operating conditions including factors such as the strength of materials, loading capacity of tyres etc.

warnInG: under no circumstances should the maximum technically permissible Laden mass of this motorhome be exceeded.

14

preparing for the road nose weight:

The static mass of the trailer towing device on the rear of the towing vehicle.

notes:

(i) When measuring the noseweight it is important that the trailer is loaded.

(ii) The trailer is intended to be towed slightly nose heavy. The nose weight can be adjusted by distribution of the load. The nose weight should be approximately 7% of the actual laden weight (but not greater than the hitch capacity) and at the same time suit the motorhome requirements.

See ‘Advice on Towing’ page 20.

LoadInG of veHIcLe warnInG: Loads must not be exceeded. the driver is responsible for arranging the loads so that they comply with the technical weight limits of the specific motorhome model.

See specification handbook.

Correct weight distribution is an important factor in ensuring your vehicle is well balanced and easy to drive. It is therefore necessary to load your motorhome carefully making sure all heavy articles are evenly distributed and are preferably placed in the lower lockers or bed boxes.

warnInG: the two longitudinal bars fitted to the roof are there for styling purposes only and should not be used for load carrying.

warnInG: do not travel with televisions or microwaves in overhead lockers unless the appliance was supplied fitted to your motorhome by the manufacturer.

Although it is essential to ensure that the total weight of your motorhome does not exceed the stipulated Maximum Technically Permissible

Laden Mass, (MTPLM), it is important to remember that the front and rear axles also have individual maximum weights which must not be exceeded.

If an en-route heating system is fitted isolate all appliances except the heater.

warnInG: walking on the roof is not recommended!

Please take care to ensure you have allowed for the masses of all the items you intend to carry in your motorhome e.g. passengers, optional equipment, essential habitational equipment and personal effects such as clothing, food, pets, bicycles, sailboards, sports equipment etc.

to ensure adequate road holding the load on the front axle, under all conditions, must not be less than 40% or more than

70% of the total weight.

Ensure you distribute the payload equally on each side of the vehicle to avoid an imbalance.

These weights, together with the MTPLM, can be found on the VIN (Vehicle Identification

Number) plate located under the bonnet on the front cross member.

warning: turn off all gas appliances while the vehicle is in motion.

tyreS

General instructions if a tyre is punctured

Wheel changing and correct use of the jack and spare wheel calls for some precautions.

Alert other drivers that the motorhome is stationary in compliance with the regulations in force: hazard warning lights, warning triangle etc. Passengers on board should leave the motorhome especially if fully laden. Passengers should keep well clear of on coming traffic whilst the wheel is being changed. Ensure the handbrake is fully engaged.

The spare wheel supplied is specific to your motorhome, do not use it on other models or use the spare wheel of other models on your motorhome. Wheel bolts are also specific

15

preparing for the road

do not use it on other models or use the spare wheel of other models on your motorhome.

The jack should only be used for changing a wheel on the motorhome with which it is provided. In no case should it be used for repairs under the motorhome. Incorrect positioning of the jack may cause the jacked motorhome to fall.

Have the punctured wheel repaired and refitted as soon as possible. Do not grease the threads of bolts before installing them: they may slip out.

Fasten the wheel cap correctly to prevent the wheel from coming free in motion. Never tamper with the inflation valve. Never place tools between the rim and tyre. Ensure that all tyres have the correct pressure.

If a wheel or tyre fitted to a wheel is changed any replacement must be of the same type of construction and size.

The law requires that the tyres and pressures must be suitable for the use to which they are being put. The minimum tread depth must be 1.6mm throughout a continuous band comprising the centre three-quarters of the breadth of the tread and around the circumference of the tyre.

Please refer to the wheel replacement section in the FIAT user handbook for specific detail including illustrations and tyre pressure information. This may also be displayed adjacent to the driver’s door.

dedIcated traveLLInG paSSenGer SeatInG

Seat belts are fitted to all travelling seats.

Travelling seats are designated by the manufacturer and vary according to the layout you have purchased. Each seat is homologated i.e. tested to all relevant safety requirements.

NEVER travel in or attempt to install a seatbelt to a non-designated seat.

warnInG: Side facing seats are designed for habitational use only, not for use when the vehicle is in motion.

Seat belts and legislation

Designated driver and passenger seats are fitted with seat belts and MUST be worn.

Children, aged up to 3 years of age, must wear an appropriate child restraint suitable for their age and weight. Children from 3 years of age and up to 135cm (4’5”) in height, or 12 years of age, whichever is reached first must use a restraint suitable for their age.

- Do not make alterations or additions to the belt.

- Belts that have been cut, frayed, damaged or stressed through impact should be replaced. After impact the motorhome anchorage points should also be checked.

- To clean use warm soapy water only.

- Periodic inspection of the installation will ensure reliability of the seat belt.

drIvInG LIcence

Licences issued to drivers who passed their car driving test before 1st January 1997 include categories B+E and C1+E which gives them entitlement to drive motor vehicles up to

7500kg MTPLM.

Drivers who passed their test on or after this date have category B entitlement only, which restricts the entitlement to motor vehicles with up to 8 passenger seats and an MTPLM of up to 3500kg with trailers up to 750kg

MTPLM (4250kg combined) or larger trailers providing the combination of the trailer and towing vehicle does not exceed 3500kg and the MTPLM of the trailer does not exceed the unladen weight of the towing vehicle.

Drivers who passed their test on or after the 1st

January 1997 will need to take an additional test(s) to gain the B+E and C1+E entitlement.

A number of Swift Group motorhomes have an MTPLM greater than 3500kg, therefore you must check you have the driving licence entitlement for the vehicle you drive.

veHIcLe cLaSSIfIcatIonS

Motorhomes up to 3500kg MTPLM are P/LGV

(Private Light Goods Vehicles), motorhomes with an MTPLM over 3500kg and up to 7500kg are P/

HGV (Private Heavy Goods Vehicles). These are used in defining MOT classifications and vehicle excise duty (road tax) classifications.

advIce on towInG the rear step must be removed before fitting a towbar.

The towing capability of each motorhome differs depending on the specific chassis and engine types, (see ‘Towing Capabilities’ in your specification handbook).

This takes account of the maximum front and rear axle loadings as well as the minimum front axle loading in two conditions, MRO and

MTPLM condition.

Towing in these, and any other condition requires sensible loading and distribution of payloads to ensure the requirements of the towing capability table are met.

When towing, the demands on both the vehicle and driver increase. A trailer reduces manoeuvrability, the ability to climb hills, acceleration and braking capacity and makes the vehicle handle and corner differently.

It will also increase the fuel consumption of the vehicle.

Always brake in good time. Special care must be taken when descending gradients. Change down before going down a steep hill so the

17

preparing for the road

engine can act as a brake. Ensure that the towing vehicle tyre pressures are correct and adjusted for full load conditions and that the trailer tyre pressures are as recommended by the trailer manufacturer. Regularly check the operation of trailer brakes and lights.

For maximum stability, when loading the trailer ensure that the loads are properly secured during transit. Position loads so that most of the weight is placed close to the floor and, where possible, immediately above or close to the axle(s).

Where the load can be divided between trailer and tow vehicle, loading more weight into the vehicle will generally improve the stability of the combination. After loading the trailer, check that the nose weight and axle loads are in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, also check the rear and front axle loads on the motorhome. When calculating the laden weight of the trailer, remember to include the weight of the trailer PLUS THE LOAD.

note: towing regulations vary from country to country. It is very important to ensure that national regulations governing towing weights and speed limits are observed (refer to the relevant national motoring organisation for information). the stated maximum permissible towing weights refer to the vehicle’s design limitations and not to any specific territorial restrictions.

Notes: i) Do not exceed the motorhome gross vehicle train weight.

ii) Do not exceed the maximum front & rear axle loads on the motorhome.

iii) Ensure the motorhome front axle load is never less than 40% or more than 70% of the total weight.

iv) Motorhomes with an MTPLM up to 3500kg which have European Type approval can only be fitted with a type approved towbar complying to 94/20/EC.

v) The limit for towing an un-braked trailer is 750kg (based on VIN plate not actual weight), this applies to a towed car.

vi) A car dolly with a car with a GVW over

750kg in place is considered as two trailers, these are legal for use for recovery but under the Road Traffic Regulations Act

1984 the combination is limited to 40 mph on motorways and dual carriageways and 20 mph elsewhere. A car dolly is not legal for transportation (there is a very specific difference between recovery and transportation. Recovery is defined as the removal of a broken down vehicle to a place of safety).

vii) The maximum permitted vehicle combination length is 18.75m, however any combination must ensure compliance with the turning circle requirements of

Construction and Use regulations 1986 &

97/27/EC.

Known as the silent killer, Carbon Monoxide is an invisible, odourless and tasteless gas.

what are the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning?

Early symptoms of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning can mimic many common ailments and may easily be confused with flu or simple tiredness. Symptoms to look out for include: tiredness, drowsiness, headaches,

fire extinguisher

It is recommended that a 1kg (2lb) minimum capacity dry powder fire extinguisher complying with the requirements of ISO 7165 be carried inside your motorhome at all times and a fire blanket be kept next to the cooker.

When using a dry powder extinguisher it is suggested that the caravan be evacuated until the powder has settled, to avoid inhalation.

A fat pan fire should not have a fire extinguisher aimed at it. It should be smothered with a fire blanket.

23

Safety & security warnInG: provide one dry powder fire extinguisher of an approved type or complying with ISo 7165, of at least 1kg capacity, by the main exterior door and a fire blanket next to the cooker. familiarise yourself with the instructions on your fire extinguisher and the local fire precaution arrangements.

ventILatIon

All motorhomes comply with BS EN 721. The ventilation points on your motorhome are fixed points of ventilation which are required by the

European Standards.

All motorhomes have ventilation at high level and low level which have been calculated to suit the individual needs of your motorhome.

High level ventilation is achieved by means of the roof lights and washroom roof ventilators.

The low level ventilators are positioned underneath the fridge housing or within the rear travelling seat.

Under no circumstances must these vents be blocked or obstructed, even partially.

It is advised that fixed ventilation points are checked and cleaned (if necessary) on a regular basis using a small brush and a domestic vacuum cleaner.

Additional night time ventilation is obtained by releasing the window catches and placing them in the second groove. Note the windows are not sealed from rain in this position.

As the ventilation levels are calculated to suit each model’s requirements there should be no modifications made which may result in reduced ventilation levels.

SecurIty motorhome theft

The theft of a motorhome can occur in the most unlikely circumstances; from a motor-way service area or even an owner’s driveway.

Secure all windows and doors when your motorhome is unoccupied even if only for a short length of time.

warnInG: do not obstruct ventilation.

warnInG: never use portable cooking or heating equipment other than electric heaters that are not of the direct radiant type, as it is a fire and asphyxiation hazard.

warnInG: appliances such as cookers must not be used for heating.

eScape patHS

It is important that you do not block escape paths to emergency exits with obstructions or hazards.

cHILdren

Do not leave children alone in the motorhome in any event. Keep potentially dangerous items out of reach, as at home eg matches, drugs etc.

vIn (vehicle identification number)

Record your motorhome VIN which can be found on the lower edge of the base vehicle front windscreen and the plate located on the front cross member under the bonnet.

Make a note of these numbers in the space provided at the front of this handbook and make a separate note of the numbers to keep safe at home.

additional security

Consider fitting any device which might deter or prevent intrusion by thieves. Customers are advised to identify their motorhome with a method for subsequent identification if other forms of identification have been altered or removed.

Free crime prevention advice about securing your motorhome, protecting your valuables, property marking either at home or whilst on site, can be obtained from the Crime Prevention

Officer through your local Police station.

3. To change the filter, turn the filter cap anticlockwise and pull out the filter (Fig 3).

fig. 3 fig. 4

4. After installation, please drain off the first

Litres until the filtrate is clear.

Maximum filtering efficiency (cleaning effect) can only be achieved if the filter is changed at regular intervals. The filter must be changed within 35 days of initial use, even if it was not in use during this time. Please remember that water is a foodstuff. We recommend that filtered water is consumed within 1-2 days and advise you to drain the system after long periods of disuse.

Use dial on the filter housing (Fig 4) for guidance to replace after approx. 35 days of use.

notes:

1. Never allow the pump to run dry.

Always ensure that the pump is submerged

In the water or the lifetime of the pump will be reduced.

2. Before winter storage the water system must be completely drained and the filter cartridge removed. Also recharge the pump assembly or the blanking plug.

If you use the Truma external shower

(optional) and have therefore installed the

‘connector’, please drain the filter housing by connecting up the outside shower and allowing the remaining water to drain via the open shower head. The filter hole may be sealed with the filter cap.

3. Clean the water system at the start and end of the season with sterilising fluid (see notes under sterilising).

Sterilising

1. When cleaning the water system at the start or end of the season It is advisable to use a sterilising fluid, e.g. Chempro SDP or similar. It is recommended that for this operation the filter is removed as the fluid reduces the effectiveness of a new filter.

2. Flush the system thoroughly to remove the effective fluid traces.

3. After sterilising the system at the start of the season it is recommended that a new

Ultraflow filter cartridge should be fitted.

How to prepare your water system for winter use

During winter caravanning it is recommended to keep the water container within the caravan

Open the exterior drain tap at the rear, right-hand side of the motorhome. It is recommended that the waste tank is drained at frequent intervals (e.g. daily) when on site.

water system winterisation

Motorhomes may be in use during the winter but when not in use, even for short periods, the water system must be completely drained.

One night of freezing temperatures is all that is required to cause expensive permanent damage to water system components. Frost damage may not be claimed under the motorhome warranty.

To drain the system, proceed as follows:

1. Park the motorhome on level ground.

2. Ensure that the gas and electric supplies are turned off.

3. Open all hot and cold taps.

4. Drain fresh water tank as described on page 9-1.

5. Drain waste water tank as described on page 9-1.

Water system will now drain - allow approximately 5 minutes.

6. Leave all taps open, see Water Heater instructions for winterisation of the heater.

Setting up the water System

1. Replace/close all drain valves and plugs.

2. Close all taps.

(a) Check all plumbing connections.

(b) It is recommended at this point to sterilise your water tank and flush the system through with a proprietary sterilising fluid obtainable from chemists.

pressure sensitive water pump

Setting up the water System check out procedure

Examine the installation. Ensure all pipes and connections are fitted and tight, there are no kinks in the hoses and the battery is fully charged (or a 12V DC converter of at least 10 amp capacity if used).

Initial operation

1. Fill the tank with water.

2. Open all taps - hot and cold.

3. Switch pump to ‘ON’ position. Allow time for the hot water tank to fill. Shut off each tap as flow becomes steady and free of air.

Shutting off the last tap should cause the pump to shut off.

To check for leaks a positive pressure check with a pressure gauge is recommended. A drop in pressure with all taps off will indicate a leak in the system. Correct all leaks, no matter how small.

GeneraL InformatIon

Gas Bottles

Bottled Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) is the most convenient portable source of fuel for your vehicle.

Unless en-route heating has been installed, make sure that heating and cooking appliances and the gas cylinders are switched off before you move the vehicle.

Regularly check flexible gas hose, joints and connections for tightness. Finally make sure that each gas appliance is working efficiently to the recommendations of the appliance manufacturers.

Only use gas bottle cylinders that are located within their dedicated position within the gas bottle housing, never extend hose - hose lengths must not exceed 400mm.

with the requirements of EN 12864 annex D.

We do not recommend the use of an inline LPG

BBQ with the 1.2kg/H regulator when other

LPG appliances are in use.

Note: Unless en-route heating has been installed the regulator valves should always be in the ‘OFF’ position when driving.

Standard regulator

The new high-pressure hoses have threaded connections and must be securely attached to the regulator and to the gas bottle.

Ensure that there is a constant rise in the flexible gas hose between the gas bottle outlet and the regulator elbow.

warnInG: Inspect flexible gas hose(s) regularly for deterioration and renew as necessary with the approved type, in any case no later than 5 years after the date of manufacture marked on the hose.

warnInG: ensure hoses do not become entangled in door mechanism.

regulator

Your vehicle is supplied with a wall mounted gas regulator plumbed inside the gas bottle compartment. The regulator and all appliances work at a harmonised 30mb pressure, which work with Butane and Propane gas.

Pressure regulation system in this vehicle has a fixed working pressure of 30 mbar with a flow rate of either 1.2 kg/H or 1.5kg/H and complies

Gas Hoses

High-pressure hoses or pigtails as they are called must be used with the new style regulator.

LPG bottle i.e. Propane, Butane, BP and

Camping Gaz cylinders all have unique bottle adaptor connections. It is important to check you have the correct hose and adaptor to suit your gas bottles.

Push on hoses are no longer permitted under the latest regulations.

typeS of GaS

Butane

Butane is supplied in the UK in green, blue or aluminium bottles.

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 UK butane.

Butane is suitable for use at temperatures down to 2°C but will not work below that.

33

connecting services 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 caravanning.

GaS Safety advIce warnInG: If you smell gas or suspect a leak and if it is safe to do so, isolate the gas appliances and turn off the gas bottles at the regulator. evacuate the vehicle and ventilate. Seek professional advice as to the cause of the leak.

warnInG: Inside outlet sockets shall only be used with dedicated appliances i.e. equipment supplied with the motorhome. no gas appliance shall be used outside when connected to an inside socket.

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).

LPG has been given a smell by the manufacturers in order to identify leaks.

awning Spaces LpG appliance exhaust

There is no danger of pollution of an enclosed awning space by the LPG exhaust from a refrigerator venting into it, as awning spaces are generally well ventilated.

Space heaters may produce sufficient exhaust to pollute the awning space, if it is totally enclosed, from a general comfort, smell and hygiene point of view. In the extreme case there could be a build up of carbon dioxide to a dangerous level.

Owners are advised to allow some fresh air circulation in the awning space when such appliances are in use.

c) Never use gas appliances without adequate ventilation.

d) Avoid naked lights when connecting or changing a cylinder.

e) Check the flexible hose frequently.

f) The gas is heavier than air and therefore sinks to the lowest point.

g) Keep bottle gas containers outside (and protected against frost). If they must be kept inside make sure they are well away from heat.

h) Always seek advice when in doubt.

warnInG: do not use appliances with a different working pressure to 30mbar. warnInG: maintain adequate spacing of combustible materials from sources of heat.

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) Always turn off the gas cylinder valve or inlet to the vehicle when the appliances are not in use.

warnInG: do not use independent portable gas appliances inside the vehicle.

warnInG: always read individual appliance instructions.

34

connecting services ventilation warnInG: Safety ventilation shall in no circumstances be obstructed even partially, screens and grills must be kept clean and free from dust

All ventilation complies with BSEN 721 and vents should not be obstructed in any manner as this could lead to insufficient fresh air. In this case the confined atmosphere becomes depleted of oxygen which leads to the formation of the highly poisonous gas ‘carbon monoxide’.

Carbon monoxide is odourless, colourless and tasteless and will rapidly cause unconsciousness and death with little or no warning prior to collapse. THERE IS NO DANGER WHEN

ADEQUATE VENTILATION IS PROVIDED.

changing gas cylinders

The following procedure should be adopted: a) Extinguish any fire, flame or source of ignition (including cigarettes, pipes and pilot lights) before changing gas cylinders.

b) Wherever possible change gas cylinders in the open air.

c) Ensure that the gas cylinder valve(s) is/are closed before disconnecting any empty cylinder or before removing the plastic cap or plug on the outlet connection of the replacement cylinder. (Note. left hand thread.) d) Make firm gas-tight joints. Any leaking vapour will smell. If a leak is suspected after changing gas cylinders and opening valve, test by brushing with soapy water around the joints. Bubbles will form if vapour is leaking. Never use a naked flame.

e) Ensure that the replacement gas cylinder is the correct one for the installation.

f) Gas cylinder valves are of various designs depending on the type of cylinder and the use for which it is intended and it is essential that the correct pressure regulator with the correct pressure setting and capacity for the installation is used in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.

g) In the case of a connection on the pressure regulator which relies upon a sealing washer(s) to maintain a gas-tight joint, it is essential to check that the washer is present, is sound and is correctly positioned prior to making the connection. Where the connection relies on a metal to metal seating or bull nose connection to obtain a gas-tight joint it is essential that the mating surfaces are clean and undamaged. In no case should a damaged valve or connection be used.

h) Where connections are designed to be tightened with a spanner, it is essential that a spanner of the correct size is used and that the union is firmly tightened, hand tightness is not sufficient. When self-sealing valves are incorporated in a gas cylinder, connections should be made in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and tools should not be used.

Leaks

Action to be taken in the event of a suspected leak: a) If a gas leak is suspected, close the gas cylinder valve or other valve at the inlet to the vehicle. Do not operate electrical switches. Open all doors and windows to disperse any gas escape.

b) The strong unpleasant smell of LPG will enable the general area of the leak to be detected. Check that gas is not escaping from an unlit appliance. In the case of a leak, close cylinder valve(s) and call a competent installer to rectify the fault.

c) If a leaking gas cylinder cannot be stopped, remove the cylinder to a safe place in the open air in an upright position away from drains and any source of ignition.

fire

Precautions and actions to be taken: a) A fire extinguisher of adequate size and preferably of the dry powder type should be available.

35

connecting services

b) The initial use of dry powder extinguishers is recommended only if it likely that the leakage can be stopped by closing the cylinder valve or that the cylinder can be speedily removed.

c) Cool with water all gas cylinders that cannot be removed.

d) As soon as possible remove cylinders adjacent to the fire to a safe place in order to gain access to the seat of the fire.

connection

Ensure that the gas regulator hose is correctly connected to the gas cylinder in the gas bottle compartment and that the hose connection is tight.

Gas bottles must be fully located, seated at the base of the bottles and restrained by the strap provided in the dedicated compartment position. Straps are positioned to suit 6kg, 7 kg and 13kg bottles.

warnInG: If using cylinders other than those recommended, the user must ensure these are adequately supported, ventilation openings must not be obstructed and the cylinders must not cause damage to other fixtures and fittings located in the compartment.

Open ended gas hoses must always be protected from dirt and insects.

Before turning on the gas supply at the regulator, ensure that all gas operated equipment in the vehicle is turned off.

All gas equipment is supplied through a central

Gas Manifold System which has individual isolation taps for each appliance (Fig. A).

tHermaL InSuLatIon and HeatInG

As with electricity in the home, care must be exercised when handling mains electricity.

Your attention is drawn to the following notice as laid down by the Institute of Electrical Engineers.

3. Lift the cover of the electricity inlet provided on the vehicle, 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.

InStructIonS for eLectrIcIty SuppLy on arrival at site

1. Before connecting the motorhome installation to the mains supply, check that:

(a) the mains supply is suitable for your installation and appliances, i.e. whether it is AC or DC and whether it is at the correct voltage and frequency, and

(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.

(c) any residual current device (earth leakage circuit breaker) in the mains supply to the vehicle 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.

on leaving site

5. Switch off the main switch at the site supply point and remove the flexible cable connector replacing any cover fitted.

6. Disconnect the flexible cable from the vehicle.

It is important that the main switch at the site supply point should be switched off, the supply flexible cable disconnected, and any cover replaced on the socket outlet at the site supply point before disconnecting the flexible cable from the vehicle. It is dangerous to leave the supply socket or supply flexible cable live.

For vehicles that are generally 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 reinspected every year. An annual inspection by a qualified person is recommended (see list below) who should sign and issue a periodic inspection report.

Suitably qualified persons acceptable to the

SMMT/NCC to sign and issue Inspection and

Completion Certificates should be one of the following:

• An approved contractor of the National

Inspection Council for Electrical Installation

Contracting* or

overSeaS connectIon

Note: Connection to a mains voltage supply

OVERSEAS requires particular attention.

Care must be taken when connecting supplies abroad since the supplies can be of REVERSE

POLARITY. The significance of REVERSE

POLARITY is that when equipment is switched off it may not be electrically isolated.

The only certain way of making equipment safe is to unplug it.

If electrical polarity indication is not included in your vehicle electrical equipment, it is useful to have a means of checking polarity of the mains supply, especially when touring overseas.

There are several proprietary makes of equipment available for the purpose.

If it can be achieved, it is preferable to connect live to live, and neutral to neutral to maintain full electrical protection.

CHECK all vehicle equipment is set-up to accept the site supply before actually switching on.

It is possible that the 230V mains electrical equipment may not all operate simultaneously.

A typical UK motorhome site mains hook up point provides a maximum output of 10 amps and on some continental sites the available output may be as low as 5 amps.

If your loading exceeds the site supply it may trip the site circuit breaker. Please check the available mains output with your site operator.

Similarly loadings on each circuit breaker within the vehicle should be observed

A label positioned close to the MCB’s will identify which appliances within the vehicle are fed from which MCB. Consulting the table

electrical systems motorHome Battery

It is recommended that a good quality leisure battery is always in circuit when the system is in use.

A deep cycling rechargeable heavy duty 12v battery should be used to provide power for lights and other electrical appliances. A proprietary brand leisure battery with a minimum

85amp - 110 amp capacity is recommended.

Note: 85amp - 110 amp batteries and above should be checked dimensionally before purchasing, to ensure fitment within the battery compartment, as brands vary in size.

It should be remembered that batteries suitable for the electrical demands of a motorhome differ in design from those for use with a car, and whilst the system may operate with a car battery it is strongly recommended that only a rechargeable leisure type battery, maintained in good condition is used. The battery should be kept topped up at all times.

The battery should be positioned in its compartment, which is vented to the outside, and be properly secured before travelling.

warnInG: when connecting the battery, ensure that the correct polarity is observed (black is negative and red is positive) and that the terminals are securely fastened.

Under normal circumstances it should not be necessary to remove the battery other than for routine inspection of terminals and ‘topping up’.

warnInG: Switch off all appliances and lamps before connecting or disconnecting the battery.

Smoking is prohibited around the battery compartment.

To preserve the life of your leisure battery and charger please observe the following: i) Do not leave all 12v lights powered at the same time as this will drain your leisure battery more rapidly.

ii) If all 12v lights must be powered together, ensure the battery is ‘in-circuit’ and that the battery charger is turned on.

iii) For optimum performance use the transformer/charger unit with a leisure battery attached.

Please note the auxiliary battery supplied with your motorhome may not be fully charged and should be charged for a minimum of 24 hours before use.

warnInG: explosive gases may be present at the battery. take care to prevent flames and sparks in the vicinity.

Your motorhome has been fitted with an in-line fuse between the battery terminal and strip connector. It is recommended that the fuse rating fitted in this location does not exceed

40 amps.

fauLt fIndInG

1. mains supply

If mains supply is not available when mains switch and MCBs are switched on, check supply at site distribution and/or mains lead and connections.

2. earth faults or mcB tripped

See RCD/MCD Section.

3. charger switch fails to illuminate

Check mains supply as for No.1 and 2.

4. Battery discharged or not charging with charger on

Check battery terminals.

5. 12v distribution circuit failure

Check and replace relevant DC output fuse as required.

6. Consult the manufacturers regarding any further difficulties, in particular those related to mains voltage section.

7. There are no user-serviceable or replacement parts in the consumer unit. All service of this nature should be referred to the manufacturers.

44

electrical systems note: never use a mains supply lead whilst coiled. always uncoil the full length before connecting to the supply and remember to protect the cable from traffic.

maInS unIt

This acts as the main switch for the motorhome allowing isolation of all circuits. It forms part of the Power System along with the Transformer/

Charger Unit (if fitted).

The mains unit replaces the conventional fusebox. Similar, but larger ones are often fitted in new houses.

The unit gives both overload (MCBs) and earth leakage protection (RCD) for the electrical supply in your motorhome.

For normal operation all switches on the unit need to be in the ON position. The small switches on the unit are known as MCBs

(miniature circuit breakers).

These take the place of the conventional fuse but are more convenient.

Note: Having too many appliances switched on at the same time will trip the MCBs. This is a safety measure. (For appliance ratings, see mains consumption).

In the event of a fault the MCB ‘trips’ ie automatically moves to the OFF position.

After elimination of the fault the MCB can be re-set by switching to the ON position, (against the spring pressure in an upwards direction).

If an earth fault develops or a person touches a live piece of equipment the leakage of current to earth should immediately operate the RCD

(residual current device) and ‘trip’ the main switch, to the OFF position.

This switch is only re-settable after elimination of the fault. To re-set, operate the switch as for MCBs.

Periodically the RCD should be checked by operating the test button marked ‘T’. The unit should immediately switch to the OFF position.

If the unit does not switch off then a qualified electrician should be consulted.

If the unit does switch off, the test is complete and the switch can be re-set restoring the supply back to normal.

Add together the current ratings for each electrical appliance you wish to use simultaneously and ensure the total does not exceed the relative MCB ratings. You will find the table on page 52 a useful guide to typical values.

Depending upon model, switches on the front of the consumer unit can be used to switch off

230v supplies to the charger, or, space heater, water heater and charger.

Care is needed if a Truma Ultrastore water heater is fitted. If a 230v supply is introduced to the water heater when that water heater is empty, there is a possibility that the 230v element within the appliance will overheat and the water heater will go into a failsafe mode.

The 230v supply to the Ultrastore will then need to be switched off, and the element be allowed to cool, before the Ultrastore will function again.

We recommend that the switch marked water heater is left in the off position unless water is present in the water heater.

Generator GuIdeLIneS

Your motorhome can be used with a generator provided these guidelines are met:

• Lack of regular servicing can be the cause of most generator problems, gensets under

2kW are mainly dependent on engine speed for output frequency and voltage.

Poor or no servicing may cause the engine speed governor to run the genset to fast.

Therefore, frequency and output voltage can rise above the specification of the machine data plate i.e. 230V at 50Hz. This may cause damage to electrical/electronic equipment (such as battery chargers).

• A generator should always run for a few minutes prior to connection with the motorhome electrics, to allow it to warm up and the output to settle to a steady level.

• The AC output of generators is often derived from an AC alternator, rectified to

DC then inverted back to AC. In essence this means the output sinewave may not run sophisticated electronics efficiently.

Some of the new wave of gensets are more sophisticated in their production of a sinewave output and are more suited to run electronic equipment.

• If in doubt consult your genset dealer or manufacturer for advice.

Important operating notes

1. If the chimney has been placed near or directly beneath an opening window, the device must be equipped with an automatic shut-off device in order to prevent operation with the window open.

2. The integrity and tight fit of the exhaust gas double duct must be checked regularly, particularly at the end of long trips.

Also check the mounting of the appliance and the cowl.

3. Following a blow-back (misfire) always have the exhaust gas system checked by an expert!

4. If appliances are assembled on the outside of the vehicle, regularly check the flexible air ducts for damage. A damaged duct could lead to exhaust gas entering the vehicle.

5. Always keep the cowl for conducting exhaust gas and supplying combustion air, free from contamination (slush, leaves etc.).

6. The installed temperature limiter shuts off the gas supply if the appliance becomes too hot. Therefore do not shut the warm air outlets and the opening for the returning circulating air.

7. If the electronic control p.c.b. is defective, return it well packed. If you fail to do so, guarantee claims shall no longer be valid.

Only use original p.c.b. as a spare part!

8. Directive 2004/78/EC stipulates that a safety shut-off device is required if motor homes are being heated while driving. The safety shut-off device is also recommended for safety reasons if caravans are being heated while driving.

The Truma SecuMotion gas pressure regulator meets this requirement.

If no Truma SecuMotion gas pressure regulator is installed, the gas cylinder must be closed whilst driving and information signs must be attached to the cylinder cabinet and in the vicinity of the control panel.

always use original truma parts for maintenance and repair work!

9. For conducting the exhaust gas under the floor, the vehicle floor must be sealed tight. There must also be three open sides beneath the vehicle floor to ensure unhindered escape of the exhaust gas

(snow, aprons etc.).

• switch off the appliances

• shut off the gas cylinder

• open windows and door

• do not actuate any electrical switches

• have the entire system checked by an expert!

repairs may only be carried out by an expert!

A new O-ring must always be installed after dismantling the exhaust duct!

1. Any alteration to the appliance (including exhaust duct and cowl) or the use of spare parts and accessories which are important to the function of the heater and which are not original Truma parts, as well as the nonobservance of the installation and operating instructions, will lead to the cancelling of the guarantee and exclusion of liability claims. It also becomes illegal to use the appliance, and in some countries this even makes it illegal to use the vehicle.

2. The operating pressure for the gas supply is 30 mbar and must correspond to the operating pressure of the appliance (see data plate).

3. Liquid gas systems must comply with the technical and administrative regulations of the respective country of use (e.g. EN 1949 for vehicles or EN ISO 10239 for boats in

Europe). National directives and regulations

(e.g. DVGW worksheet G 607 for vehicles and G 608 for boats in Germany) must be complied with.

For vehicles for commercial use, the relevant accident prevention regulations issued by the professional associations are to be respected

(BGV D 34).

The inspection of the gas system is to be repeated every two years by an approved liquid gas specialist (DVFG, TÜV, DEKRA). This is to be confirmed on the corresponding inspection certificate (G 607, G 608, or BGG 935).

the keeper of the vehicle is responsible for arranging the inspection.

Pressure regulating equipment and hoses must be replaced with new ones no more than 10 years after the date of manufacture (every 8 years if used commercially).

This is the responsibility of the operator.

4. Liquid gas equipment must not be used when refuelling, in multi-storey car parks, in garages or on ferries.

5. During the initial operation of a brand new appliance (or after it has not been used for some time), a slight amount of fumes and smell may be noticed for a short while. This

60 can be remedied by running the heater at maximum output and ensuring adequate room ventilation.

6. If the burner makes an un-usual noise or if the flame lifts off, it is likely that the regulator is faulty and it is essential to have it checked.

7. Items sensitive to heat (e.g. spray cans) must not be stored in the installation area, since excess temperatures may under certain circumstances be incurred there.

8. Only pressure control equipment that complies with EN 12864 (in vehicles) and EN

ISO 10239 (for boats) with a fixed delivery pressure of 30 mbar must be used for the gas system. The flow rate of the pressure control device must correspond to at least the maximum consumption of all devices installed by the system manufacturer.

For vehicles we recommend the Truma

SecuMotion gas pressure regulator and the

Truma DuoComfort automatic changeover valve for the two-cylinder system.

At temperatures of around 0°C or less the gas pressure regulator and the changeover valve must be operated using the EisEx de-icing system.

Controller connecting hoses that meet national regulations must always be used in the respective country for which the equipment is destined. These hoses must be checked regularly for brittleness. Winter-proof special hoses must always be used if the equipment is operated during the winter.

If the pressure regulator is exposed to weather conditions – especially on trucks – always make sure to protect the regulator using the Truma protective cover (standard accessory in truck attachment kit).

function description

The liquid gas heater ‘Truma Combi’ is a warm-air heater with integrated hot water boiler

(10 litre volume). The burner operates fansupported, which ensures trouble-free function even when on the move.

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.

– In summer operation, the water contents are heated in the smallest burner stage. Once the water temperature is reached, the burner switches off.

– 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 operational mode and the heater output.

At a temperature of approximately 3° C at the automatic FrostControl safety/drain valve, the valve will open and drain the boiler.

Safety instructions

If the gas system is leaking or if there is a smell of gas:

– extinguish all open flames

– open windows and door

– close all quick-acting valves and gas cylinders

– do not smoke

– do not activate any electric switches

– ask an expert to inspect the entire system!

repairs may only be carried out by an expert!

Any modifications to the unit, including accessories, exhaust duct, and cowl, or the use of spare parts and accessories that are important to the operation of the system that are not original Truma parts and failure to follow the installation and operating instructions will cancel the warranty and indemnify Truma from any liability claims. It also becomes illegal to use the appliance, and in some countries this even makes it illegal to use the vehicle.

The gas supply’s operating pressure (30 mbar) must be the same as the unit’s operating pressure (see type plate).

The vehicle owner is always responsible for arranging the inspection.

Liquid gas equipment may not be used when

equipment details

refueling, in multi-storey car parks, in garages, or on ferries.

During the initial operation of a brand new appliance (or after it has not been used for some time), a slight amount of fumes and smell may be noticed for a short while. It is a good idea to heat the device up several times in summer operation (60° C) and to make sure that the area is well ventilated.

Heat-sensitive objects such as spray cans or flammable liquids may not be stored in the same compartment where the heater is installed because, under certain conditions, this area may be subject to elevated temperatures.

Only pressure regulating equipment that complies with EN 12864 (in vehicles) with fixed output pressure of 30 mbar may be used for the gas system. The flow rate of the pressure control device must correspond to at least the maximum consumption of all devices installed by the system manufacturer.

For vehicles, we recommend Truma’s

SecuMotion gas pressure regulator; for the two-cylinder gas system we also recommend the Truma DuoComfort changeover valve.

At temperatures below 5° C, the gas pressure regulator or the changeover valve should be used with EisEx regulator heating.

Controller connecting hoses that meet national regulations must always be used in the respective country for which the equipment is destined. These hoses must be checked regularly for brittleness. Winter-proof special hoses must always be used if the equipment is operated during the winter.

Pressure regulating equipment and hoses must be replaced with new ones no more than 10 years after the date of manufacture

(every 8 years if used commercially). This is the responsibility of the operator.

do not use the boiler water as drinking water!

Important operating notes

If the cowl has been placed near or directly beneath an opening window, the device must be equipped with an automatic shut-off device in order to prevent operation with the window open.

The integrity and tight fit of the exhaust gas double duct must be checked regularly, particularly at the end of long trips. Also check the mounting of the appliance and the cowl.

Following a blow-back (misfire) always have the exhaust gas system checked by an expert!

Always keep the cowl for the exhaust duct and combustion air intake free of contamination

(slush, ice, leaves etc.). The warm air outlets and the openings for circulation air return must be unobstructed so the unit will not overheat.

The integrated temperature limiter blocks the gas supply when the unit becomes too hot.

Directive 2004/78/EC stipulates that a safety shut-off device is required if motor homes are being heated while driving.

The Truma SecuMotion gas pressure regulator meets this requirement.

note: If the truma Secumotion gas pressure regulator is not installed, the gas cylinder must be closed while driving and warning signs must be in place in the gas cylinder protection box and near the control panel.

The safety shut-off device is also recommended for safety reasons if motorhomes are being heated while driving.

Open hot water taps in kitchen and bathroom,

(set preselecting mixing taps or single-lever fittings to ‘hot’). Leave the fittings open for as long as it takes for the boiler to displace the air and fill up, and the water to flow without interruption.

If just the cold water system is being operated, without using the water heater, the heater tank also fills up with water. To avoid frost damage, the boiler must be drained through the drain valve, even if it was not operated. As an alternative, two shutoff valves, resistant to hot water, can be fitted in front of the cold and hot water connection.

When connecting to a central water supply (rural or city mains), a pressure reduction valve must always be installed to prevent pressures above

2.8 bar from developing in the water heater.

draining the water heater

Switch off power to water pump (main or pump switch).

Open hot water taps in kitchen and bathroom.

Turn the rotary switch on the drain valve

(Frost Control) by 180° until it engages, whereby the push button moves out and the drain valve opens.

The boiler is now drained directly to the outside

via the drain valve. Place a bucket beneath the outlet to check whether the water content has completely drained away (10 litres). There shall be no claims under guarantee for damage caused by frost!

maintenance

Only original Truma parts may be used for maintenance and repair work!

The water container used is made of stainless steel, which is foodstuff-compatible.

Use wine vinegar for descaling the water heater, this being introduced into the appliance via the water supply. Allow the product to react and then thoroughly flush out the appliance with plenty of fresh water. For sterilization purposes we recommend ‘Certisil-Argento’; other products (especially those containing chlorine) are unsuitable and may damage the unit.

To avoid microorganisms colonizing the water in the boiler, heat the water to 70° C at regular intervals (at least once per year).

Move the rotary switch on the control panel to position (c – summer operation) 60° C. The green (b) and yellow (g) LEDs light up.

Once the water in the boiler has reached a temperature of 60° C, the burner will switch off and the yellow LED (g) will go out. The unit must stay switched on for at least 30 minutes and no warm water may be removed. The residual heat in the heat exchanger will heat the water up to 70° C.

• Defrost your refrigerator as soon as a layer of ice forms.

• Avoid unnecessarily low temperature settings.

• Clean dust and dirt from the condenser at regular intervals.

Before starting your new refrigerator for the first time, you should clean it inside and outside with a damp cloth for hygienic reasons (please also refer to the see ‘Cleaning and care’).

8.1 energy saving tips

• Choose a well ventilated installation location which is protected from direct sunlight.

• Allow hot food to cool down first before you put it in the refrigerator.

• Do not open the refrigerator more often than necessary.

• Do not leave the door open for longer than necessary.

8.2 using the refrigerator

The fridge conserves fresh foodstuffs. The freezer compartment conserves frozen foodstuffs and freezes fresh foodstuffs.

Ensure that food or liquids in glass containers are not excessively cooled. Liquids expand when they freeze and can thus destroy the glass containers.

Food may only be stored in its original packaging or in suitable containers. Ensure that the objects placed in the refrigerator are suitable for cooling to the selected temperature.

Switch the refrigerator on by turning the temperature control (fig.51) clockwise.

note: after switching on, the refrigerator requires approx. 60 s until the compressor starts up.

Setting the temperature

You can set the temperature to any level using the control knob. The built-in thermostat regulates the temperature as follows:

1 least cooling

7 most cooling

The cooling capacity can be influenced by:

• the ambient temperature

• the amount of food to be conserved

• the frequency with which the door is opened.

conserving foodstuffs

You can conserve foodstuffs in the refrigerator.

The time for which the food can be conserved in this way is usually stated on the package.

Do not conserve warm food in the refrigerator.

Do not place glass containers containing liquid in the freezer compartment. Food which can easily absorb tastes and odours and liquids and products with a high alcohol content should be conserved in airtight containers.

The refrigerator is divided in different zones with different temperatures:

• The colder zones are immediately above the drawers for fruit and vegetables, near the back wall.

• Observe the temperature information and best before date on the food packaging.

79

equipment details observe the following when using the refrigerator:

• Never re-freeze products which have started defrosting or have been defrosted, but consume them as soon as possible.

• Wrap food in aluminium foil or cling film and shut in in a suitable box with a lid. This ensures that aromas, the shape and the freshness will be better conserved.

defrosting the refrigerator

The appliance has two options to remove the condensation resulting from operation:

• pass it directly outside: Remove the drip-tray (1). Connect a hose (2) to the outlet connections (3).

1 defrosting the freezer

Never use hard or pointed tools to remove ice or to loosen objects which have frozen in place.

To defrost the refrigerator, proceed as follows:

• Take the contents out.

• If necessary, place the contents in another cooling appliance, to keep them cool.

• Set the temperature control knob to ‘0’.

• Leave the door open.

Switching off and storing the refrigerator

If you do not intend to use the refrigerator for a long time, proceed as follows:

• Set the temperature control knob to level ‘0’.

• Disconnect the power cable from the battery or pull the AC cable plug out of the rectifier.

• Clean the refrigerator.

• Turn the locking wheel (4) anti-clockwise to the end stop (‘Vent’).

• Close the door until it latches in.

IMPORTANT: Before using the appliances for the first time, remove all accessories and packing in the grill and oven, including any surface protection film, i.e. plastic coating.

Clean all interior surfaces with hot soapy water to remove any residual protective covering of oil and rinse carefully.

warning: accessible parts may be hot when the grill is used, young children should be kept away. when cooking always ensure young children are kept away.

Ensure the gas cylinder is turned on. In the event of a gas smell, turn off at the cylinder and contact supplier. The burners on this appliance have fixed aeration and no adjustment is required. Depending on the gas being used, the burners should flame as follows:

propane: The flames should burn quietly with a blue/green colour with no sign of yellow tips.

Butane: Normally on initial lighting, as small amount of yellow tipping will occur and then slightly increases as the burner heats up.

Important: the control tap on this appliance operates both the grill and oven burners. to ensure safe operation it is not possible to operate both burners at the same time.

using the hob burners

1. Ensure gas cylinder/supply is connected and turned on. In the event of a gas smell turn off at gas cylinder/mains and contact supplier

2. Flame supervision: Each burner is controlled individually and is monitored by a thermocouple probe. In the event of the burner flames being accidentally extinguished, turn off the burner control and do not attempt to re-ignite the burner for at least one minute.

3. To light: Push in the control knob and turn to full rate - see Fig.2. Hold a lighted match or taper to the burner and push the control knob in and hold. It is necessary to hold the knob depressed after the burner has ignited or approximately 10-15 seconds, to allow the thermocouple probe to reach temperature, before releasing the knob. Should the flame go out when the knob is released, the procedure should be repeated holding the knob depressed for slightly longer.

4. For models fitted with spark ignition the procedure is similar except that the burner can be ignited by depressing the ignition button, which is located on the fascia. If the burner has not lit within 15 seconds the control knob should be released and the burner left for at least 1 minute before a further attempt to ignite the burner.

5. For simmering, turn the knob further anti-clockwise to the low rate position.

6. To turn off: Turn the control know until the line on the control knob is aligned with the dot on the control panel. Always make sure the control knob is in the off position when you have finished using the hotplate burners.

Important: The two in line hob burners on this appliance will support pans from 10cm to

20cm. The single hob burner will support pans from 10cm to 22cm.

warning: Glass lids may shatter when heated. turn off the hotplate and allow it to cool before closing the glass lid. remove all spillage from the surface of the glass lid before opening.

using the hotplate

Ensure the electricity is switched on.

The hotplate control is numbered from 1 to 6.

To turn it on, rotate the knob either clockwise or anti-clockwise to the required position. Position

1 is the coolest setting. To turn the hotplate off, rotate the knob until the line or pointer on the knob lines up with the zero on the control panel.

The hotplate is a sealed construction and transfers heat through conduction. For maximum efficiency a correctly sized pan with

86

equipment details

a flat heavy gauge base should be used. Pan size should be the same or slightly larger (up to

1”/2.5cm oversize).

Before using your hotplate for the first time, we recommend that you prime and then season it.

to prime the Hotplate

Switch on the hotplate for a short period, without a pan, to harden and burn off the coating. Use a medium to high setting for 3 - 5 minutes. A non toxic smoke may occur during this process. Allow it to cool, then season.

to season the Hotplate

First heat the hotplate for 30 seconds on a medium setting, then switch off. Pour a minimal amount of unsalted vegetable oil onto a clean dry cloth or paper towel, and apply a thin coat of oil to the hotplate surface. Wipe off any excess oil, then heat the hotplate on a medium setting for 1 minute. Occasional seasoning will help to maintain the Hotplate’s appearance.

using the grill

Important: The grill must only be used with the door open. The heat deflector below the fascia should be pulled out prior to lighting the grill.

Never adjust the heat deflector position without using haNd protection i.e. oven gloves.

1. Ensure gas cylinder/supply is connected and turned on. In the event of a gas smell turn off at gas cylinder/mains and contact supplier.

2. To light: Open door, push in the control knob and turn to full rate - see Fig 2.

Hold alighted match or taper to the burner and push the control knob in and hold. The burner should ignite and the control knob should be held in for 10-15 seconds before release. If the burner goes out, repeat procedure holding control knob for slightly longer.

3. For models fitted with spark ignition the procedure is similar except that the burner can be ignited by depressing the ignition button, which is located on the fascia.

Ignition must be carried out with the door open, and if the burner has not lit within

15 seconds the control knob should be released and the grill left for at least 1 minute before a further attempt to ignite the burner.

4. On first use of the grill, it should be heated for about 20 minutes to eliminate any residual factory lubricants that might impart unpleasant smells to the food being cooked.

An non-toxic smoke may occur when using for the first time so open any windows and turn on mechanical ventilators to help remove the smoke.

5. Although the grill does heat up quickly, it is recommended that a few minutes pre-heat be allowed.

6. Flame Failure Device (FFD): The grill burner is fitted with a flame sensing probe, which will automatically cut off the gas supply in the event of the flame going out. In the event of the burner flames accidentally being extinguished, turn off the burner control and do not attempt to re-ignite the burner for at least one minute.

7. It is normal for the flames on this burner to develop yellow tips as it heats up, particularly on Butane.

8. A reversible grill pan trivet enables the correct grilling height to be achieved.

Fast toasting - trivet in high position

Grilling sausages - trivet in high position

Grilling steak/bacon - trivet in high position

Grilling chops, etc. - trivet in low position

Slow grilling - trivet removed

9. 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 position when you have finished grilling.

Important: the pan supplied with the appliance is multi functional, for use either whilst grilling or when using the oven. the handle design allows removal or insertion whilst the pan is in use.

StatuS 315 omnI-dIrectIonaL teLevISIon & fm radIo antenna uSaGe GuIdeLIneS remedy

Turn the gain control switch on the Power

Pack to ‘La’. Secondly check the points covered in Fault Finding.

1. weak tv Signal

This produces a ‘Snowy’ picture which can be caused if you are too far away from the

TV transmitter, such as in a remote area, positioned in a valley, or if there is a building, hill or other obstruction blocking the signal.

Each TV transmitter has a defined service area where reception will be good. Beyond that boundary is a ‘fringe’ area where the TV signal will be weaker and the reception quality poorer.

remedy

Firstly determine whether you are in a poor reception area. Secondly check the points covered in Fault Finding.

3. Ghosting

This is when the TV signal is reflected from something in your locality. The ‘something’ may be a local building or landmark. Your antenna is receiving both the direct signal and the reflected signal from the same transmitter.

remedy

Try to move to a better position away from the obstruction. Unfortunately it may not always be possible to isolate Omni-Directional antennas from the cause of the problem.

2. tv Signal too strong

This can produce severe picture distortion like a zig-zag style pattern. This can be caused when you are too close to a transmitter or picking up strong radio transmissions from another source such as CB radio. Also electrical interference can cause similar effects

(see Interference 4).

4. electrical Interference

This type of interference is commonly caused by electrical appliances, such as fans, electric shavers, fluorescent lights.

Other forms of interference can produce a zig-zag pattern similar to that described in Interference 2 which may be caused by inverters, charging units etc.

remedy

Check the points covered in Fault Finding.

In some instances, this type of interference can be overcome by switching off the

equipment details

relevant appliances.

103

equipment details fault finding

The following are some of the key areas we suggest you check which generally solve the most common problems encountered with the operation of the Status antenna.

coaxial plugs

It is critical that all coaxial plugs in the system are fitted correctly. Using the diagram and procedure described, please check each individual plug, ensuring it is wired correctly.

Secondly please ensure only quality plugs have been used.

coaxial cable

Sharp bends, kinks and hot surfaces can easily damage coaxial cable and should be avoided. An inspection of the cable routing is recommended to ensure all is correct

Coaxial cable, if placed in close proximity to electrical cables, transformers or other pieces of electrical equipment, may pick up electrical interference causing picture quality to deteriorate, especially in poor reception areas.

Excess cable should be removed and NOT coiled as this may cause picture distortion.

pinnacle

The pinnacle is essential for the optimum performance of the antenna and therefore

104 shouId be in place when the antenna is in use.

Gain Switch

Situated below the LED light on the Power

Pack, this switch should be set to the normal

‘NMl’ (switch UP) position for general use. The

Low setting may be used when situated close to TV transmitters where strong signals may be affecting the quality of the picture. (see

Interference2 below) into the ‘ANT-IN’ socket of the Power Pack and switch on. Tune in your TV for the strongest signal. If the picture quality is improved the fault lies with the wiring of the system between the

Power Pack and the TV outlet socket

red Led light

Should the red LED on the Power Pack not light, first try unplugging the cable connected to the Antenna Dome from the ‘ANT-IN’ socket If the LED then illuminates the fault lies with either the coaxial plug or the coaxial cable, please refer to these areas described earlier.

If the LED is still not lit, please contact our office for further assistance.

antenna dome coaxial cable

Check the routing of the coaxial cable from the

Antenna Dome to the Power Pack. Check to ensure there are no kinks or trapped cable or if there are loops of surplus cable which could be affecting performance.

When the Antenna Dome was originally fitted and lowered onto the Mounting Foot, cable may have been trapped or kinked under the

Mounting Foot To check, remove the Antenna

Dome as described to see if this has occurred.

Short Hook up test

This test isolates parts of your system leaving only the TV and the Status antenna linked directly together. Firstly, unplug the coaxial plugs from the ‘TV-FM’ sockets of the Power

Pack which will be connected to a TV outlet socket. With your TV fly lead, connect your TV direct to the Power Pack, plugging into one of the ‘TV-FM’ sockets.

Ensure the antenna dome is plugged directly

motorhome care wInterISatIon/StoraGe

This is probably an opportune moment to arrange for the Motorhome to have its annual service at your appointed dealer.

The following applies whenever your

Motorhome is stored particularly during the winter months.

Do not park near trees or larch type fences, due to possible wind damage.

Keep any grass around the floor of the

Motorhome short, to maintain air flow and stop any possible damp getting into the

Caravan or Motorhome.

It is advised that the Motorhome is ventilated regularly throughout the winterisation /storage period, opening windows, doors and rooflights when possible.

GeneraL for care of the vehicle battery please refer to the peugeot handbook in section

‘trouble Shooting’.

All moving parts should be checked for free operation.

Clean all cooking appliances and refrigerator.

Lubrication should be carried out at the points illustrated in the general notes on chassis maintenance.

Charge up the on-board battery every 2 months.

Leave the refrigerator door open. Leave furniture doors and lockers open to allow air to circulate fully.

modifications - dIy work

Owners need to be aware that carrying out DIY modifications to your caravan or motorhome may in certain instances, invalidate the warranty cover and could also affect the safety and structure of the vehicle.

wd40 IS not recommended for externaL or InternaL uSe

WD40 attacks paintwork and sealants. If a lubricant is required for Interior hinges, Sliding door tracks, Bottle box hinges, Exterior door hinges, Plastic tracking etc. We recommend

DIY/Automotive retailers including Halford’s

Before carrying out any DIY work within the warranty period, please check with your nearest

Swift Group dealer or contact Supercare customer services on 01482 875740 for advice.

paintwork

The exterior of your coach built motor home is finished with glass reinforced plastic (GRP) sheet that is very durable and easy to clean owing to its smooth finish. If cared for properly, the GRP will retain its showroom finish. Proper care involves washing the motorhome regularly with a mild detergent rinsing with cold water and leathering off. A good quality, similar coloured car wax may also be applied which will make washing even easier.

Please note: Do not use abrasive-eleaning agents, on the exterior of your motorhome.

Stubborn stains may be removed using a soft cloth and mild detergent.

warnInG: overzealous use of detergents may loosen the decals and/or badges.

mouldings

All mouldings are anodised aluminium and will retain their lustre for a long period if no abrasive materials are used on them. If your motor home is subject to constant changes in temperature, mastic may seep from the joints between the mouldings. Excess mastic that appears can be removed by wiping with a soft cloth.

acrylic windows

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

Keeping your acrylic windows Sparkling

For small scratches, it is possible to use a

108

motorhome care

liquid metal polish or a proprietary acrylic polish of a suitable grade dependant on the severity of the scratches.

cleaning windows

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

removing tar

Use a proprietary tar remover on your double glazed windows; (available from most leading car accessory or do-it-yourself shops). Do not use petrol or other chemicals.

Note: The use of a pressure washer on the exterior of your motorhome is not recommended as this may damage the transfers.

condenSatIon what is condensation?

Condensation is the change of water from its gaseous form (water vapour) into liquid water. Condensation generally occurs in the atmosphere when warm air rises, cools and looses its capacity to hold water vapour.

As a result, excess water vapour condenses to form droplets.

why condensation occurs

Condensation occurs when warm moist air meets a cold surface. The risk of condensation therefore depends upon how moist the air is and how cold the surfaces of the vehicle are.

Both of these depend to some extent on how the vehicle is used. In a Caravan or Motorhome with a cold outside wall, if the temperature of the wall falls below the dew point temperature, it is quite normal for condensation to occur predominantly on the external walls.

when condensation occurs

Condensation occurs usually in winter, because the Caravan or Motorhome is cold and because skylights, windows and doors are opened less and therefore the moist air cannot escape.

How condensation occurs

Condensation occurs often for short periods in bathroom and kitchen areas because of the steamy atmosphere, and quite frequently for long periods in unheated areas; it also occurs in cupboards or corners of rooms where ventilation and movement of air is restricted.

what is important

Two things are particularly important:

- To provide ventilation so that moist air can escape.

- To use the heating reasonably.

How can you prevent condensation

Provide ventilation so that moist air can escape.

a) Good ventilation of kitchens when washing, cooking or drying damp clothes is essential.

Use the electric element of the space heater will help, when washing, cooking, or drying damp clothes, and particularly when the windows show signs of misting up.

b) If there is no mains electric supply and therefore you cannot use the electrical element of the space heater, open the skylights or windows slightly, but keep the door closed as much as possible.

c) After showering, keep the bathroom window or skylights open, and shut the bathroom door long enough to dry off the room.

d) In all other areas provide some ventilation.

Fixed ventilation is provided in accordance with BS EN 721: 1998 this is through skylights and ‘heki roof lights’ in the roofs and from ventilators through the floor under cookers, motorhome step well, doors and in bed boxes it is important not to block these.

Too much ventilation in cold weather is uncomfortable and wastes heat. All that is needed is a very slightly opened window or skylights. Opening a skylight or ‘Heki; rooflights partially or windows opened to about 1cm opening will usually be sufficient.

Provide reasonable heating a) Do not use portable paraffin or flueless gas heaters at all.

109

motorhome care

b) If drying damp clothes or towels, open a window enough to ventilate the area and turn on the electric element of the space heater but do not hang items over the heater.

c) Try to make sure that all areas are at least partially heated. Condensation most often occurs in unheated areas.

d) To prevent condensation, the heat has to keep room surfaces reasonably warm. It can take a long time for a cold caravan or Motorhome to warm up, so it is better to have a small amount of heat for a long period than a lot of heat for a short time.

e) Caravans and Motorhomes are left unoccupied and unheated and can get very cold. Whenever possible, it is best to put the heating on at a low level before setting off on a journey in the winter to pre heat the vehicle.

f) In houses, the rooms above a heated room benefit to some extent from heat rising through the floor. In Caravans and

Motorhomes this does not happen.

Caravans and Motorhomes use only carefully selected insulation materials but unlike most rooms at home they have all outside walls, so they lose heat through all walls as well as the roof and floor.

Even in a well insulated Caravan or motorhome with reasonable ventilation it is likely during cold weather if the temperature is less than

10°C that condensation will occur. Ideally the temperature should be kept about 20°C although this is not always possible.

mould growth

Any sign of mould growth is an indication of the presence of moisture and if caused by condensation gives warning that heating or ventilation, may require improving.

new vehicles

New Caravans and Motorhomes often take a long time before they are fully ‘dried out’ because of moisture in the materials used in the manufacture. While this is happening they need extra heat and ventilation. At least during the first winter trips and may require more heat than they will need in subsequent winters journeys. Allowance should be made for this.

WARNING: Do not wash your Caravan or

Motorhome with a high pressure washer as these can permanently damage the seals of your vehicle.

changing exterior Bulbs aLwayS repLace LIKe for LIKe

For individual replacement bulb specification, refer to your Specification Handbook.

Generally road lighting bulbs can be easily replaced by unscrewing and removing the lens from the exterior of the caravan or motorhome.

InterIor

Follow these guidelines to ensure your investment is receiving the very best attention.

Side walls, roof Lining

A simple wipe over with a damp cloth and a very mild detergent is all that is needed.

Soft furnishings

Should be vacuumed occasionally to remove grit and sand and help to keep its smart appearance and ensure long life. The upholstery can be cleaned with a mild, reputable upholstery cleaner. It is recommended that the curtains and pelmets are specialist cleaned only. The foam used in cushions are manufactured to meet fire regulations. It requires time to return to its normal position after prolonged use.

Clean and dust the upholstery and if possible remove before placing the Motorhome into winter storage. Alternatively, stand the cushions on their edges to allow circulation of air. This

110 will reduce the possibility of dampness from condensation. Keep curtains or blinds closed, to minimise fading of furniture.

If the blinds and/or flyscreens remain down for a prolonged period of time, re-tensioning of the springs will be necessary before re-use.

work Surfaces

You should not stand very hot items on any of the work surfaces.

furniture

A simple wipe over with a damp cloth should be all that is required. Polishing with a proprietary brand of wax polish enhances and maintains furniture in showroom condition.

It must be remembered that because the frames of some doors are made of ash, which is a natural product, they can be affected by temperature and humidity and may bow under certain conditions. As conditions change they should revert to their original positions.

motorhome care

allowed in the UK.

The wheels should be turned every couple of weeks. If you are removing the wheels, follow the jacking procedure for changing a wheel.

Check your tyres regularly for signs of age and deterioration, particularly wear, cracking and blistering. If in doubt consult a reputable tyre fitter.

cupboard catches

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

Kitchen drainer and cutting Board

You should not stand hot items on to these items. To wash use only warm soapy water, do not use chemicals and bleach.

Bathroom, Shower room and

Kitchen equipment

All the Thermoplastic parts in these areas have easy clean surfaces. To ensure long life and prevent damage you must not use any cleaning materials at all and ensure water temperatures do not exceed 70°C, (putting cold water in first is suggested). After every use, it is essential that you rinse with clean water only and wipe with a soft damp cloth.

Failure to follow these simple instructions may result in premature failure or cracking which will not be covered by any guarantees (including extended warranties).

changing Interior Bulbs

It is recommended to leave the drain taps in an open position during storage. Before recomissioning the system, reverse all above actions.

Before recomissioning the system, reverse all above actions.

The Thetford Cassette toilet is easily winterised for storage.

Empty remaining fresh water into the bowl by activating the flush handle up and down or by pressing the flush button (model dependant).

Once pump has been cleared and water flow has stopped completely, release into waste tank. Remove waste tank and empty contents in normal way.

To evacuate any remaining water from the fresh water tank, place a container underneath the drainplug and remove drainplug.

When the procedure has been completed replace drainplug and waste holding tank.

Clean the seals and grease them if necessary after drying, with acid free vaseline.

Leave the blade of the holding tank open.

Do not replace cap on the pour out spout, to ventilate the holding tank.

recomissioning the water System

Fill the fresh water tank on the Thetford

Cassette porta potti (model specific) using a hose or jerrycan until the water in the funnel reaches the neck. Tank capacity is 15 litres.

Aqua Rinse may be added to improve cleaning of bowl and flushing of unit.

Replace cap. Swing back the water fill funnel until it touches the water tank.

Add Aqua Kem (100 ml) into the Cassette (or

120 ml if using Aqua Kem Bio) through the pour out spout. Add small amount of water through the pour out spout and replace the cap. Close the cold taps and ensure all the drain taps are closed.

It is advisable after storage to flush the water system initially with a sterilising agent (such as

Milton), and then with water repeating until the system is well flushed through.

Connect the pump.

Fill the system with water until water flows

112 freely from the hot taps. About 2 gallons of water will be required. Close the hot taps.

appliances

Before starting motor caravanning after storage, check all gas appliances and electrical points.

Note: Preferably not less than once a year, the electrical installation should be inspected and tested by a qualified electrician.

After storage it is advisable to air the

Motorhome and clean throughout, especially cooking appliances and the refrigerator.

Replace the bedding if they were removed for storage.

Important: always follow the manufacturers recommended procedures after use of fitted equipment in the motorhome, before storing for any length of time.

carInG for tHe envIronment

After many years of service you may decide that your motorhome has become beyond economic repair and should be disposed of.

Please ensure that you comply with the end of life vehicle legislation and take it to an authorised treatment facility where it will be properly dealt with to minimise any negative environmental impact. The transaction will be logged at the DVLA, identifying that you are no longer the owner of the vehicle.
