DATA RECORD

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Your vehicle is fitted with deadlocks on all doors. These are intended to improve vehicle security, and mean that even if forced entry is gained to the vehicle, for example through a broken window, it is still not possible to open the doors from inside.

However, this also means that in some circumstances exit from the vehicle may be delayed in an emergency.

Please read carefully the warning given on page 6-1.

Climatic Conditions

This motorhome is designed for use in cold climates, and is certified to grade 3 in accordance with the European standard EN

1646-1: 2012. This means that it has been tested and shown to provide a comfortable internal environment even when the external temperature is as low as -15ºC.

Handbook

Any queries should be addressed to your

Auto-Sleeper dealer.

Appliance Instructions

The appliance instructions included have been extracted from those supplied from the appliance manufacturers.

MOTORHOME CODE

THE COUNTRY & COASTAL

CODES

Upon arrival at your destination you should be aware of the Country Code relating to motorhome owners. This is entitled the Motor

Caravanners’ Code.

Code of Conduct - Camp Sites

Arrivals

• Report to reception immediately on arrival.

Vehicle Movement

• 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).

• Only a person in possession of a current driving licence may drive on the site.

• Park correctly as advised on your pitch.

Where possible leave 20ft of free space around your vehicle.

Use of Site

• Use the electrical mains hook-up in the correct manner and with caution.

• Ensure that all fresh water taps/ connections are turned off after use.

• Have care and consideration when using all facilities (toilets and showers etc.) and leave them clean and tidy. Young children should be escorted.

To avoid possible damage to sewage purification works, only approved chemical fluids must be used. Under no circumstances may coal tar, phenol or caustic-based fluids be used. Disposable napkins and similar bulky items must not be put into chemical closet emptying points but should be wrapped in a polythene bag and placed in the container provided. (Put all litter in containers marked for the purpose).

Noise

• Do not make excessive noise.

2-1

• Children should be restrained from making excessive noise.

• Flying kites and model aircraft and the use of items like catapults or air-guns as well as ball games should not be permitted among, or close to, motorhomes.

• Musical instruments, record players, radios and televisions should not be used to the inconvenience of other people on site.

• Open and close doors quietly.

• Power generators must be adequately silenced and used with consideration.

Dogs and Pets

• 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.

• No animal should be allowed in the shower/toilet blocks.

• Do not let dogs foul the site.

Fire Precautions

Adhere to and make note of all fire precautions concerning the whereabouts of the fire points.

Although not compulsory, it is recommended that a 1 kg (2lb) dry powder fire extinguisher is carried. It should comply with BS 5423 and be marked BSI or FOC approved. It is important to check at regular intervals that the extinguisher is working as is required by types meeting BS 5423.

Careful thought is necessary for the positioning of the extinguisher, which should be near the door but not too close to the cooking equipment where sudden flames could make it unreachable. In the kitchen area, a fire blanket is a worthwhile precaution.

Unless permission has been granted, barbecues should not be used. When permission has been given, consideration should be given to the annoyance that can be caused to other users of the site. Open fires are not allowed.

MOTORHOME CODE

Awnings and Tents

Awnings and tents should only be used when permission has been obtained.

When on grass and staying for more than a few days, the ground sheet and/or side flaps of awnings should be periodically raised in order to avoid damage to the ground.

Departure

• Leave the pitch clean and tidy.

• On leaving, check out with the reception paying the required dues.

Wild camping

Camping away from licensed sites, without the permission of the landowner or his agent, is not allowed in the United Kingdom. When permission has been granted, all aspects of this Code should be adhered to.

On no accounts should:

• Litter be disposed of other than in receptacles provided.

• Water be allowed to escape from the vehicle.

• Chemical toilets be emptied except into the disposal places agreed with the landowner.

• Washing or similar be hung outside the vehicle.

Parking

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.

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.

2-2

When the vehicle is in motion it is compulsory that all passengers are seated and seat restraint straps worn.

Before moving off, elevating roofs MUST be lowered and correctly secured, and top hinged windows closed. Likewise all doors and access lockers for gas containers and chemical toilets must be properly closed.

Exterior steps should be properly retracted and secured.

When the vehicle is being refuelled, or on a ferry, all gas systems must be turned off.

Gas appliances should only be used when the vehicle is in motion when the manufacturer of the appliance permits such use.

Handbook

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

Environment

Care and consideration should be taken to protect the environment.

Observe the Country and Coastal Codes shown below:

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.

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.

• 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)

Mass in Running Order (MRO)

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.

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.

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.

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.

LOADING AND DISTRIBUTION OF

WEIGHT IN THE MOTORHOME

SENSIBLE LOADING

HOW TO APPORTION WEIGHT

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.

DO NOT EXCEED THE STATED MAXIMUM

LOAD. ITEMS FITTED OTHER THAN

STANDARD EQUIPMENT WILL DEPLETE

THE PAYLOAD STATED IN THIS

HANDBOOK.

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 Bars

Note that the bars fitted to the sides of the roof of your vehicle are intended as a styling feature only. They are not intended to be used to secure anything to the roof.

5-1

ARRIVAL AT SITE

5-2

SAFETY & SECURITY

SAFETY

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.

Emergency Exit

WARNING: Your vehicle is fitted with

deadlocks, on all doors, as part of the

Peugeot security system. These are activated when the ‘Lock’ button on the key fob is pressed twice in succession, and means that the doors cannot be opened even if entry has been gained to the inside, through a broken window for instance.

However, this also means that in an emergency, exit from the vehicle may be delayed if the key fob has been used to lock the vehicle with people inside, and is not immediately to hand.

In order to avoid this possibility it is important that the vehicle is not locked using the key fob when people are inside, at night for instance.

Instead, use the central locking button on the facia (adjacent to the hazard warning lamp switch) to lock the vehicle.

This will lock the vehicle from the outside, without applying the deadlocks, but means that the doors can still be opened immediately from inside by pulling the door release lever.

Please refer to the Peugeot handbook section on ‘Access’ for further details, and note carefully the warnings given there also.

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.

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.

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.

6-1

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 make any additional openings in the floor.

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.

Awnings

There is no danger of pollution of an enclosed awning space by the LPG exhaust from the refrigerator venting into it.

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.

Note: Motorhome owners are advised to allow some fresh air circulation into the awning space when such appliances are in use.

SAFETY & SECURITY

ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS

Batteries

Battery terminals and connectors should be firmly attached. Battery surfaces should be free of moisture and dirt.

Where removable cell taps are fitted these must be screwed firmly home.

When removing a battery always remove the negative cable first. On re-connection the negative cable should be connected last.

Switch off all lamps and appliances before disconnecting the battery. Do not smoke while working on or near to the battery.

Fuses

Always replace blown fuses with one of a correct rating.

Overload

Never overload any electrical circuit, especially the 12-volt socket outlet. The rating of appliances should be checked before connection.

Shower Compartment Light

Operating Features

Your FireAngel detector offers many features which set it apart from other CO detectors on the market today.

Test/Reset Button Feature

This button will:

• Test the sounder, power pack and circuitry.

• Allows you to test the sensor by introducing a source of CO into the detector (see ‘Testing The Sensor’).

• Silence the loud 8.5dB (at 1 metre (3 feet)) sounder during an alarm (only for alarms due to levels of CO of less than

50ppm)

Testing the sounder, power pack and circuitry

Test the sounder, power pack and circuitry by pressing and releasing the Test/Reset button to confirm that the detector is operating properly. The sounder should sound as soon as the button is pressed, and the Alarm LED will illuminate red indicating that the sounder is working and the power pack is providing power to the unit. This test for the sounder, power pack and circuitry should be performed on a weekly basis.

Testing the sensor

Note: We suggest the use of an incense stick or cigarette as the inefficient way in which these products burn means the smoke given off contains a detectable localised amount of carbon monoxide. Alternative sources of

SAFETY & SECURITY smoke, for example an extinguished candle or match, will not contain sufficient levels of carbon monoxide to obtain a response from the detector during this test. Please note your

CO detector will not detect smoke.

CAUTION: Sensor testing should only be performed by a responsible adult. This test should be performed annually.

Note: CO test kits may be used in order to avoid having to burn cigarettes, incense sticks etc. However we recommend that incense sticks are used as they are cheap and readily available.

Read all steps thoroughly before attempting to test the sensor.

Step 1 If the detector is wall or ceiling mounted unhook the detector from the screws.

Step 2 Cover the sounder vents with one hand. Press and hold the Test/Reset button down with your thumb/finger until the Fault LED illuminates yellow and the sounder sounds for a second time (this should happen after around

5 seconds). Release the Test/Reset button. Upon releasing the Test/

Reset button the Fault LED will flash yellow once every second. This indicates that the sampling rate of the detector has increased and can be tested using a known source of CO.

Step 4 Turn the detector on its side so that the vents on the right hand side of the detector are pointing downwards.

Hold the burning cigarette or incense stick 15cm (6 inches) below the detector, so that the smoke enters the vents on the side of the detector.

An increase in the localised carbon monoxide level with the sensor to more than 50ppm will cause the sounder to sound for one cycle of four loud beeps and the Fault LED to illuminate yellow for a short time.

This is the end of the test. The Fault

LED will no longer flash yellow and the detector will go back to normal operating mode ie. the Power LED will flash green once every minute (It may take up to two minutes of exposure to the smoke for the localised level of carbon monoxide within the sensor to reach over

50ppm). Now move the source of CO away from the detector as the test is finished.

Step 3 Light a cigarette or an incense stick using a match or lighter. If using an incense stick be sure to blow out the flame so that the incense stick is smouldering. Extinguish the lighter, or put out the match and place it into a dish of water.

Step 5 After step 4, put out the incense stick or cigarette by placing it into a dish of water. Ensure that all flames have been extinguished.

Note: If the localised carbon monoxide level within the sensor does not reach 50ppm during the test, the sensor test will stop automatically after 3 minutes.

6-5

SAFETY & SECURITY

Understanding the Product’s Indicators

The higher the concentration of carbon monoxide detected by the detector, the quicker it will respond. When sufficient carbon monoxide is detected a loud audible signal (85 dB at 1m (3 feet)) will be emitted and the Alarm LED will flash red once every second.

The Alarm will sound:

• Between 60 and 90 minutes when exposed to a minimum of 50ppm of CO.

• Between 10 and 40 minutes when exposed to a minimum of 100ppm of CO.

• Within 3 minutes when exposed to a minimum of 300ppm of CO.

Fault/low power pack signal:

The unit continuously checks the settings of its sensor and circuitry. If any of these settings are found to be incorrect or if the power pack becomes low then the detector will emit a single chirp once per minute and the Fault LED will flash yellow once per minute for up to 30 days.

IMPORTANT: This does NOT mean that the detector has detected carbon monoxide.

If the product is still within warranty then contact technical support. If the product is no longer in warranty replace immediately!

IMPORTANT: The selected power pack was chosen to provide power beyond the lifetime of the product, in particular the sensor (under normal operating conditions). The sensor life is seven years, for this reason, the detector should be replaced after seven years from the date of installation.

Maintaining/Testing Your Detector

Maintenance

Your detector will alert you to potentially hazardous CO concentrations in your home when maintained properly. To maintain your

FireAngel detector in proper working order and to ensure that the sensor will last for the lifetime of the product, it is recommended that you:

• Test the sounder, power pack and circuitry of your detector at least once per week by pressing the Test/Reset button briefly.

• Perform the Sensor Test annually.

• Keep the detector free of dust by gently vacuuming the case with a soft brush attachment when required.

To prevent the possibility of contaminating the sensor in your detector and thus affecting its reliability.

• Never use cleaning solutions on your detector. Simply wipe with a slightly damp cloth.

• Do not paint the detector.

• Do not spray aerosols on or near the detector.

• Do not use any solvent based products near the detector.

• Move the detector to a safe location and store in a plastic bag before painting, wall papering, or performing any other activities using substances that emit strong fumes. Remember to remove it from the bag and replace the detector when these activities are finished.

Failure of any test should be reported to the technical support line.

Do not attempt to repair your CO detector. Do not remove any screws or open the main casing of your detector. Any attempt to do so may cause malfunction and will invalidate the warranty.

What to do in the event of an alarm

WARNING: A loud alarm is a warning that unusually high and potentially lethal levels of carbon monoxide are present. Never ignore 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.

NEVER IGNORE ANY ALARM.

6-6

SAFETY & SECURITY

Please carefully review this owner’s manual to ensure that you know what actions to take in the event of an alarm.

What to do during an alarm

• Keep calm and open the doors and windows to ventilate the property.

• Stop using all fuel burning appliances and ensure, if possible, that they are turned off.

• Evacuate the property leaving the doors and windows open.

• Ring your gas or other fuel supplier on their emergency number; keep the number in a prominent place.

Write your fuel supplier’s emergency number here:

• Do not re-enter the property until the alarm has stopped. When exposed to fresh air it can take up to 10 minutes for the sensor to clear and the alarm to stop depending on the level of carbon monoxide detected.

• Get medical help immediately for anyone suffering the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning (headache, nausea) and advise that carbon monoxide poisoning is suspected.

• Do not use the appliance again until it has been checked by an expert. In the case of gas appliances the engineer must be registered.

SECURITY

Chassis number

Record the chassis number and the factory job number of your motorhome, and keep them in a safe place at home.

The chassis number is a 17 digit number, beginning with the letters VF3, and is found stamped on a plate visible through a window in the bottom left hand corner of the windscreen, and also on a plate under the bonnet attached to the bonnet closing crossmember. The chassis number is also shown on the type approval plate, attached to the passenger door pillar, along with the permissible weight data.

The factory job number is an alphanumeric code consisting of a letter followed by four numbers, and is found on a label inside the glove box.

Motorhome Theft

The theft of a motorhome can occur in the most unlikely circumstances; from a motorway service area, even from an owner’s driveway.

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

Additional security

Consider fitting any device which might deter or prevent intrusion by thieves. A wheel lock prevents removal of the wheel.

Window etching of the chassis number is a cost effective deterrent.

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.

WATER SYSTEMS

Fresh/Waste Tanks

The fresh and waste water tanks are located under the floor near the middle of the vehicle.

The drain taps for both tanks are clipped to the underside of the vehicle on the offside, with the waste drain being nearer to the rear of the vehicle.

For capacities of both see the Technical

Specification Section.

The freshwater tank is filled through either the Whale socket, or the lockable cap, on the side of the vehicle. A special filler hose is supplied for use with the Whale socket. Note that the socket lid must be used to lock the plug securely into the socket.

All tanks and pipework are manufactured to food grade material specification.

Breathers

Both tanks are fitted with breathers, which allow air displacement when filling. When filling the fresh water tank, water may escape through these breathers; this should give no cause for concern.

Frost Precaution

If the vehicle is not being used during freezing conditions the water must be drained. If the vehicle is being used in such conditions, refer to Section 9 for details of the automatic draining of the heater and use of the water tank heaters.

FRESH WATER PUMP

A Whale submersible water pump is fitted in the freshwater tank of your vehicle. This is a compact, self venting, high flow pump which is quiet in operation and has a maximum flow rate of 15.8 litres per minute.

Maintenance

The pump is a sealed unit so no maintenance is required other than a check as part of the annual habitation service.

Ensuring the water supply is free of debris when filling the tank will reduce the likelihood of pump clog.

Winterising

To protect against damage as a result of freezing, drain the entire water system.

CONNECTION OF SERVICES

FRESHWATER FILLER

The Whale Watermaster system is used on your vehicle to make easier the connection of an outside water supply to the water system.

Operation

Priming:

1. Open one cold tap (e.g. kitchen sink).

2. Place pump into water container.

3. Insert plug into wall socket.

4. Whale socket: Locate plug tab into lid slot and close lid to lock in position in the socket.

Close lid to lock

Plug tab locks into slot

5. Adjust dust cover over opening in container (please note dust cover should not be secured to water container as air must be allowed to enter container to replace water being pumped out).

6. Switch on 12 volt supply at main panel isolator switch.

7. Water will flow from the open tap expelling any trapped air in a few seconds.

8. Turn off tap, the system is now ready for use.

When removing plug

1. Switch off 12 volt supply at main panel isolator switch.

2. Whale socket: Lift socket lid to release plug.

3. Pull out plug from socket using hand grip.

4. Shut lid.

7-2

The submersible pump can be run for quite long periods when in water, but it is recommended that running periods should be restricted to a maximum of 15 minutes. Do not run the pump without water. Do not use the pump in water temperatures above 40ºC

(100ºF). It is best to stand the pump vertically.

Maintenance

The pump is fitted with a strainer which should be inspected and cleaned at frequent intervals. The pump is a completely sealed unit, no maintenance is required.

Helpful Hints:

Before switching on, place the pump in water and shake for a few seconds in a horizontal or inverted position to release trapped air.

This will ensure successful priming and should be repeated after refilling the water tank. The plug for the Whale socket has a groove under the handgrip for clipping the water hose into when refilling the water container.

Fault Finding

1. If the pump will not run:

Check contacts in plug and socket are clean and making contact. Check wiring connections.

2. If the pump cycles on/off with tap closed:

Check for air or water leaks in taps and piping. Re-adjust pressure switch.

3. If pump motor runs steadily and will not stop: Check that there is water in the container. Battery voltage may be too low

(at or below 10.5 volts). Adjust pressure switch and/or recharge battery. Check all connections in pipe-work. The Whale

Tiptoe Pump can be fitted in-line with the submersible pump and used as a manual back-up.

Notes

* The socket lid must be used to lock the plug securely into the socket.

• On the back of the filler socket, on the inside of the vehicle, is an adjusting screw for the pump solenoid. This is set by the manufacturer and under no circumstances should it be tampered with by the owner.

WATER PRESSURE SWITCH

Adjustment

Your pressure switch is factory set and should not normally require adjustment. In the event that your pump doesn’t switch off when you close the taps , or it pulses on and off when the taps are fully open, follow these guidelines to readjust the setting.

Pressure switch adjustment may be required usually because the power supply voltage has varied from the previous setting. Possible causes are: a. Battery drainage through normal use b. Higher voltage supply when battery charger operating

Pressure Switch Setting

1.

Ensure the system, including the heater is full of water and all taps are closed.

Refer to your user manual. Be sure to set the switch at low battery condition.

2.

If present, remove the pressure switch locknut in an anti- clockwise direction, then tighten the adjusting screw clockwise until the pump comes on.

3.

Open any tap until you have a smooth flow of water, then close the tap. You should hear the pump running and the pump running light if fitted will be on.

4.

Return to the pressure switch and turn the screw slowly anti-clockwise until the pump has stopped. Turn the screw a further half turn (180 degrees) anti-clockwise.

5.

Check for correct operation by opening and closing all taps individually. The pump should turn on when the cold tap is opened and switch off immediately when the cold tap is closed. NB At low flows there may be some pulsation.

6.

The hot side may take about 10 seconds to react (both on and off) due to cushioning from the water heater.

7.

Carefully replace the lockout until it is tight keeping the adjustment screw in position.

Remember: You may also have to adjust the pressure switch to cope with changes in voltage from either battery or mains. Do so using the above instructions.

If setting of pressure switch is still not correct you may experience:

Pump running continuously, even with tap closed. If undiscovered, could result in pump failure and flat battery. Most likely causes are that present voltage is significantly lower when last adjusted, or water container is empty.

CURE: Re- adjust switch or refill container

Pump does not run at all. If not due to blown fuse or faulty connections, then most likely cause is excessive continuous running (see

‘a’ above)

CURE: Replace pump and readjust switch

Pump runs intermittently ON, OFF, ON, OFF etc. Seen as pulsing flow from tap, or as inability to set constant water temperature, water goes hot, cold, hot, cold instead of constant warm. Most likely cause is that present voltage is significantly higher than when last adjusted.

CURE: Readjust pressure switch, if problem persists add a Whale Surge Damper.

Pump runs very noisily but does not pump water. Likely to occur after water container has been refilled. Pump is air- locked and is fighting to get air out and water in.

CURE: Unplug from the socket, allowing pump to flood, and reconnect by plugging in again. The correct sequence when refilling the container is to unplug, put pump into container, then reconnect.

Pump continues to run for up to 30 seconds after tap is turned off. This is not a problem.

This is a characteristic of pressure switch systems caused by the dampening effect of the hot water heater or surge damper on the cold side.

THREE GOLDEN RULES:

1.

NEVER allow the pump to run dry.

2.

NEVER allow the pump to run continuously for more than 15 minutes.

3.

The pump assembly MUST be unplugged BEFORE putting the pump back into the refilled water container.

CONNECTION OF SERVICES

GAS

GENERAL INFORMATION

The gas appliances in this vehicle are powered by Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) which is stored, under pressure, in a tank located under the floor in the centre of the vehicle. This tank is refilled, when required, at a re-fuelling station using a nozzle and hose in a similar way to refilling the engine fuel tank.

The Regulator

Your motorhome is equipped with a Truma gas regulator, which has a working pressure of 30 mbar, and is suitable for use with all commercially available brands of LPG. Do

not use appliances with a different working pressure.

A Truma MonoControl CS unit is fitted adjacent to the regulator to automatically cut off the gas supply in the event of an accident.

This assembly is fitted under the vehicle near the bulk tank installation. In the case of an accident with a deceleration of between 3 and 4g acting directly on the triggering element (equivalent to a collision speed of approximately 10-15 mph with a fixed obstruction), the integrated crash sensor will cut off the flow of gas. The gas supply can be restored by pressing the green button on the

MonoControl inwards and holding for approximately 10 seconds. It may be necessary to press with reasonable force, using a pen or pencil.

Availability

LPG is becoming more widely available as more vehicle engines are converted to run on it. Many garages now have an LPG pump and other outlets are available in more rural areas, often near farming communities for instance. Look for signs advertising

‘Autogas’.

If you have internet access, search for ‘LPG filling stations’ and there are many sites where input of your postcode will locate the nearest filling station to your location.

There are many companies producing LPG but all brands are suitable for use in your vehicle.

CONNECTION OF SERVICES

LPG Re-fuelling

LPG re-fuelling is simple and efficient, carried out in much the same way as petrol and diesel with a hose and nozzle designed to lock onto the filling connector on the vehicle.

The refulling point is located behind a black plastic cover on the offside of the vehicle behind the driver’s door.

Once the connection is made, the customer simply presses and holds down a button on the dispenser until they have put the required amount of fuel into the vehicle or until the tank is full.

LPG tanks are fitted with a valve that stops the flow once the tank has reached its maximum safe filling level. Once the meter stops the customer simply disconnects the nozzle and returns it to the dispenser.

Note: Although the nominal capacity of the tank is 25 litres, a float valve automatically cuts off at 80% full to allow space for the gas vapour above the liquid. Therefore, the maximum amount of LPG which can be put into the tank is 20 litres.

There is a gauge for the LPG tank, fitted at the right hand side of the dashboard, which uses LED lights to indicate the fuel level.

Safety Note

• When pulling up to the Autogas dispenser ensure the vehicle is parked with the filling connector located nearest to the dispensing pump.

• Apply the handbrake and switch off the engine.

• No smoking, naked flames or mobile phones are allowed on the Service

Station forecourt.

• If the re-fuelling process will take longer than 15 minutes (ie with the ignition off) then turn the refrigerator off at its main switch in order to prevent it from switching automatically to the alternative energy source of gas and producing an ignition spark.

• The use of an adaptor is not recommended.

Note: For European touring, adapters for use with the UK bayonet filling connector may be used temporarily.

• Refilling of portable LPG cylinders is not allowed.

• All dispensing nozzles should be fitted with a nozzle shield. Please report to staff if missing.

Filling Nozzles

When connecting the nozzle to the filler valve on your vehicle always check that the locking pins are aligned.

There are two main types of filling nozzles used in the UK - ‘Gas Guard’ and ‘De Visser’.

Gas Guard uses a rotating barrel to lock on to the filler valve wherease De Visser uses a lever.

GAS SAFETY ADVICE

Facts about LPG

• LPG is not poisonous.

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

• Bi-products of combustion are harmless.

• There is danger if all air and oxygen are excluded, therefore ventilation holes must be kept clear at all times.

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 re-fuelling.

c) LPG is more dense than air.

Consequently any vapour may flow along the ground and into drains, sinking to the lowest level of the surroundings and be ignited at a considerable distance from the source of leakage. In still air the vapour will disperse slowly.

MAINTENANCE

To ensure that the LPG tank installation remains safe the following maintenance must be carried out by a competent person.

Annually:

• Visual examination of the LPG tank, filling point, valves, regulators and fittings for:

• Dents and gouges

• Corrosion, particularly under any mounting strap or bracket

• Condition of the hoses, mounting straps, brackets and fixing to the vehicle

• Damage to valves and fittings, in particular the filling connection and cap

• Correct operation of valves, regulator, over pressure shut-off valve and fittings

All defects shall be rectified by a competent person

At periods not exceeding 10 years

This period is based on the date of manufacture (or previous test) marked on the tank. The tank shall be:

• Removed from the vehicle

• Stripped and subject to a thorough examination

• Re-painted

• The valves replaced

• Hoses replaced

• Tested after assembly and re-certified by a competent person

Alternatively, replacing the LPG tank will satisfy these requirements.

Repair

Note the following important safety warnings:

• Vehicles undergoing repairs involving welding or the application of heat, to any part within 1m of the LPG fuel tank, should have the fuel lines emptied and the tank removed or shielded from the source of heat.

• Vehicles with LPG tanks should not be put through a low bake repainting oven or similar heating process unless the temperature is controlled to less than

40

°C.

CHANNEL TUNNEL

Eurotunnel now allows motorhomes fitted with LPG tanks for habitation purposes

(although not for propulsion) to use the shuttle service. Their regulations say that the maximum capacity of the tank must not exceed 93 litres, it must be fitted with a capacity gauge and not filled to more than

80% of it’s capacity. All these criteria apply to our standard installation.

Note: All the red gas isolation taps must be in the ‘closed’ position before boarding and remain closed for the duration of the journey.

CONNECTION OF SERVICES

IN AN EMERGENCY

In an emergency the gas supply to any of the appliances can be cut-off by closing the red isolation taps located inside the vehicle, see

Location of Key Facilities chart.

If it is necessary to cut off the gas supply at the tank underneath the vehicle, then remove

VENTILATION

General

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.

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 covered or incorporates a fixed plastic vent.

This should be checked regularly to see that it has not become blocked.

High Level 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.

Maintenance

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.

All ventilation complies with BS EN 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.

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.

WARNING: Never allow modification of

LPG systems and appliances except by qualified persons.

CONNECTION OF SERVICES

Connection

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).

WARNINGS:

1 Interior outlet sockets must only be used with original appliances supplied by manufacturer.

2 No appliance must be used outside when connected to an internal socket.

3 No additional appliance must be used inside the motorhome.

Never use portable cooking or heating equipment other than electric heaters, that are not of the radiant type as they are a fire and asphyxiation hazard.

Gas isolation valve

Note: Amount and order of taps may vary from that which is shown.

Safe Usage

To avoid accidents, the following fundamental advice should be carefully read before using gas appliances.

• Always read and follow the use and maintenance instructions provided by the manufacturers of gas equipment. Should 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.

• 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.

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 a.c. or d.c. and whether it is at the correct voltage and frequency,

(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.

(d) Ensure that the RCD and the main switch on the electrical control box are OFF until after the mains cable has been connected.

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.

Note: Use mains cable fully uncoiled and protect from traffic.

CAUTION: Be aware that the 12V appliances, except the refrigerator, will not

7-11 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.

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: Electrical heaters have 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.

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

EC500 POWER CONTROL SYSTEM

1 INTRODUCTION

This section of the handbook will guide you through the operation of the electrical system.

Further technical details are contained in sections 3 to 6 or in the supporting technical manual available from www.sargentltd.co.uk

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 system has a number of key components that you will need to be familiar with before attempting to use the system, these are:

• The EC500 series Power Supply Unit (PSU) -a combined mains consumer unit and 12V controller.

• The EC480 series Control Panel (CP) -a remotely located user control panel used to turn circuits on and off and to display battery and water tank information.

• The PX-300 Battery Charger / Power Supply – A separate, air cooled 300 Watt multi-stage power converter unit that charges the batteries and provides 12V DC power.

• The EM40 Interface Unit - This small unit is located at floor level behind the drivers’ seat.

The unit houses fuses for the fridge, vehicle battery, radio and other systems. It also provides connections for the optional tow bar harness.

2.2

Activating the System

The EC500 system has a shutdown feature that should be used when the vehicle is in storage or is not being used for long periods of time. This allows the leisure electronics to be turned off when not required to save battery power. When in the off state the alarm and tracking system supplies are still active, most other supplies are turned off.

Before using the system please ensure the system shutdown switch is in the on position

(button in).

2.3

Connecting to the Mains 230V supply and Safety checks

For your safety it is IMPORTANT that you follow these connections instructions each time your Leisure Vehicle is connected to a mains supply. This section assumes that the system is complete and that a Leisure battery has been installed (see 3.5).

A) Ensure suitability of the Mains Supply.

Your Leisure Vehicle should only be connected to an approved supply that meets the requirements of BS7671 or relevant harmonised standards. In most cases the site warden will hold information regarding suitability of supply.

If using a generator you also need to comply with the requirements / instructions supplied with the generator.

Please note that some electronic generators may not be compatible with your leisure system. Further generator operational information is contained elsewhere in this manual.

B) Switch the PSU internal Power Converter

OFF. Locate the green ‘Charger’ power switch on the PSU and ensure the switch is in the off position (button out) before connection to the mains supply.

C) Connect the Hook-up Lead. Firstly connect the supplied hook-up lead

(orange cable with blue connectors) to the Leisure Vehicle and then connect to the mains supply.

D) Check Residual Current Device operation. Locate the RCD within the

PSU and ensure the RCD is switched on

(lever in up position). Press the ‘Test’

7-15 button and confirm that the RCD turns off

(lever in down position). Switch the RCD back to the on position (lever in up position). If the test button failed to operate the RCD see section 3.14.

E) Check Miniature Circuit Breakers. Locate the MCB’s within the PSU (adjacent to the RCD) and ensure they are all in the on (up) position. If any MCB’s fail to

‘latch’ in the on position see section 3.14.

F) Turn the PSU ON. Locate the black

‘Shutdown’ button and ensure it is in the on position (press button to change, button in = on, button out = off). Locate the green ‘Charger’ switch on the PSU and turn to the on position (press button to change, button in = on, button out = off). The charger switch will illuminate when turned on.

G) Check correct Polarity. Locate the

‘Reverse polarity’ indicator on the PSU and ensure that the indicator is NOT illuminated. If the indicator is illuminated see section 3.10.

H) Check operation of equipment. It is now safe to operate the 12v and 230v equipment.

Note: The isolation switch labelled ‘Water

Heater Switch’ on the front face of the control box is not functional on this model, because the water and space heaters are combined in the Truma Combi.

This switch is used if the optional air conditioning is fitted, in which case it has an

‘Air Con’ label stuck over the original text.

Operation while driving

The EC500 system is designed to shutdown parts of the system whilst the engine is running.

This is to meet Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC) regulations and to ensure the safe operation of your motorhome.

Please ensure the system shutdown switch on the PSU is in the “on” (button in) position before driving (see 2.2). This will ensure the electronic system is active and will therefore be able to control the charging process, supply the refrigerator and monitor other system circuits.

When fitted, designated 12v sockets, en-route reading lights and en-route heating will remain operational while the engine is running.

If you hear a warning buzzer when the engine is started, please see the control panel display for details and also refer to section 3.11.

3 System Technical Information

The following section provides further technical information relating to the electrical system.

3.1

System Configuration

There are a number of dealer configurable features within the system. Your dealer will discuss these options with you and make the necessary adjustments as required. Should you wish to review the possible options / settings, further information can be sourced from www.sargentltd.co.uk

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 2.3)

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.

3.3

Battery Charger

The EC500 system incorporates an intelligent three-stage battery charger / power converter.

During stage 1 the battery voltage is increased gradually while the current is limited to start the charging process and protect the battery. At stage 2 the voltage rises to 14.4V to deliver the bulk charge to the battery. When the battery is charged, the voltage is decreased at stage 3 to 13.6V

to deliver a float charge to maintain the battery in the fully charged state. The charger can be left switched on continuously as required.

The battery charger / power converter also provides power to the leisure equipment when the mains supply is connected. This module supplies DC to the leisure equipment up to a maximum of 25 Amps (300 Watts), therefore the available power is distributed between the leisure load and the battery, with the leisure load taking priority as per the following example:

Leisure load

5A

10A

15A

WARNING: Under heavy loads the charger case may become hot. ALWAYS ensure any ventilation slots have a clear flow of air. Do not place combustible materials against/ adjacent to the charger.

3.4

Smart Charging

The EC500 system incorporates a smart charge feature, which monitors both leisure and vehicle batteries and automatically adjusts and directs the charger power (and solar power if a solar panel is installed) to maintain the leisure and vehicle batteries at an optimal level.

3.5

Leisure Battery

3.5.1 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 vehicle battery is NOT suitable. This battery should always be connected when the system is in use.

The PSU is configured to work with standard lead acid leisure batteries, and in most cases is also compatible with the latest range of Absorbed Glass Matt (AGM) batteries. Before fitting nonstandard batteries please check that the charging profile described in 3.3 is suitable for the type of battery by referring to the battery documentation or battery manufacturer.

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. If a single battery is fitted to a motorhome, this fuse may be increased to 30A, however if two batteries are fitted each battery should be fused at a maximum of 20A.

3.5.2

Installation & Removal

Always disconnect the 230v mains supply and turn the PSU green charger switch to the off position (button out) before removing or installing the battery.

7-19

CONNECTION OF SERVICES

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.

3.5.3

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 EC500 system incorporates a battery protect circuit that warns the users and then disconnects the batteries when they fall below set values.

If the power is turned on and the leisure battery level falls below 9V a warning beep will be heard and information will be shown on the screen. To cancel the warning, press the select button.

If the power is turned on and the vehicle battery level falls below 10.9V a warning beep will be heard and information will be shown on the screen. If no action is taken the system will switch over from the vehicle battery to the leisure battery. To cancel the warning, press the select button.

These warnings will not be repeated unless the power switch is turned off and on again. This is to ensure the warning does not become a nuisance.

Power is turned off

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 vehicle circuits switched on, such as the road lights.

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.

This cut off only applies to power drawn from the battery by the leisure equipment that is controlled by the control panel power switch; it will not protect the battery from discharge by permanently connected equipment.

7-20

CONNECTION OF SERVICES

3.6

Solar Charge Management

The EC500 PSU incorporates a built-in solar charge management feature, which will control the input from a solar panel (when fitted, maximum rating 120W). Depending on the charge state of the batteries, the solar power will be directed to the required battery, and continuously monitored to ensure optimum operation. For this system to operate intelligently, the shutdown button should be left switched on. If the shutdown button is turned off then the solar panel will charge the leisure battery only.

3.7

Water System Operation

The control panel pump button operates the internal (onboard) water pump. This pump will draw water from the internal (onboard) water tank.

The water tanks (fresh & waste) incorporate a level warning feature to warn the user when the fresh water level drops below 25% or when the waste water level reaches 100%.

If the water pump power is turned on and the fresh water level drops to below 25% a warning beep will be heard information will be shown on the screen. To cancel the warning, press the select button.

If the water pump power is turned on and the waste water level rises to full (100%) a warning beep will be heard and information will be shown on the screen. To cancel the warning, press the select button.

These warnings will not be repeated unless the water pump power switch is turned off and on again. This is to ensure the warning does not become a nuisance.

3.8

Frost Protection

On vehicles fitted with water tank frost protection, the EC480 control panel frost protect switch can be used to turn the feature on or off.

3.9

Awning Light Operation

The awning light is control by the control panel awning / aux button. The awning light is also linked to the remote door locking. If the doors are locked or unlocked the light will illuminate for a short period of time. This is a dealer configurable item.

3.10 Electric Step Operation

On vehicles fitted with an electric step, this is operated by a button near the entry door. Press and release the button to move the step in or out. One press of the button will move the step out, a further press will move the step in again.

If the engine is started the step will move in automatically, after a short warning buzzer. If this operation fails due to an obstacle or mechanical failure a buzzer will sound continuously to warn that the step is still in the out position, and therefore requires your attention.

The electric step is also linked to the remote door locking. If the doors are unlocked the step will move out, if the doors are locked the step will move in. This is a dealer configurable item, and can be turned off if not required.

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 station). If you are using your vehicle outside the

UK this light may illuminate when no fault exists. In these cases consult the site warden for advice.

‘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

TECHNICAL DATA

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.

Weights, Dimensions and Capacities

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.

Weights

Details of vehicle weights are found below, and are presented in the manner prescribed in the European Union Masses & Dimensions

Directive 92/21/EEC.

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.

Note 2: Warning - Under no circumstances should the maximum technically permissible laden mass of this motor caravan, or its individual axles, be exceeded.

Note 3: The Mass in Running Order contains provision for the mass of liquids, gas etc (see definition). Part of this provision can be utilised as additional payload if, for example, you wish to travel with water tanks empty or with no gas cylinders.

DEFINITIONS

Maximum Technically Permissible Laden

Mass (MTPLM)

The Maximum Technically Permissible Laden

Mass is a figure given by the manufacturer of

8-1 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.

Mass in Running Order (MRO)

The Mass in Running Order is defined as the mass of the vehicle equipped to the manufacturer’s standard specification and including the following:

• Driver (assumed to be 75 kg, 11st 12lb)

• Fuel tank - 90% full

• Freshwater tank filled to 90% capacity

• LPG gas storage tank(s) filled to 90% capacity

• Water heating system - 90% full

• Mains electricity connection cable

All other optional equipment whether on the base vehicle or part of the conversion is excluded from the mass in running order.

Mass of the User Payload

The Mass of the User Payload is the difference between the MPTLM and the

MRO. It is the vehicle’s carrying capacity for everything placed in or on it, including the passengers (but excluding the driver who is already included in the MRO).

Everything listed in italics below must be subtracted from the payload.

Mass of the Conventional Load

The Conventional Load is the mass of the passengers carried and must be subtracted from the payload. The “EU 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.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION

Essential Habitation Equipment

The Essential Habitation Equipment is defined as the items of fluids required for the safe and proper functioning of habitation equipment. As the gas and freshwater are now included in the MRO, by definition, this means the mass of water in the toilet system flush tank.

This must be subtracted from the User

Payload.

Auto-Sleepers include the low voltage (230V) connection cable and the habitation battery in the mass in running order.

Options, Personal Effects and

Accessories

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.

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.

Gross Train Mass (GTM)

If you are towing a trailer with your Auto-

Sleeper, the Gross Train Weight is the maximum allowable weight of the towing vehicle, the trailer and the mass of every item carried. The figure is shown on the Vehicle

Masses data chart on the next page. Please check your driving licence to ensure you are allowed to drive a vehicle combination at this weight.

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 European trailer braking legislation. The figure is shown on the Vehicle Masses data chart on the next page

MTPLM of the Axles

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.

SPINFLO TRIPLEX

COMBINATION OVEN

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.

IMPORTANT - The right hand control knob operates both the Grill and Oven burners.

To ensure safe operation it is not possible to operate both burners at the same time.

CAUTIONS:

• The two in line hob burners will support pans from 10 to 20cm. The single hob 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. In the event of the burner flame being accidentally extinguished, turn off the burner control and do not attempt to re-ignite the burner for at least one minute.

• 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.

9-1

FITTED EQUIPMENT

3.

To light: Push in the control knob and turn anti-clockwise until the large flame symbol is in the vertical position, adjacent to the circle mark. Hold a lit match or taper to the burner and push the control knob in and hold. It is necessary to hold the knob depressedafter 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.

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.

5.

For simmering, turn the knob further anticlockwise so that the small flame symbol is adjacent to the mark.

6.

To turn off: Turn the control knob clockwise as far as possible. Always make sure the control knob is in the off position when you have finished using the hotplate burners.

WARNINGS

• 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.

FITTED EQUIPMENT

USING THE GRILL

WARNINGS

• The grill MUST only be used with the door open.

• The heat deflector below the facia should be pulled out prior to lighting the grill. Never adjust the heat deflector position without using hand protection - i.e. oven gloves.

Important

• The grill pan supplied is multi functional, for use in grill or oven.

• The handle design allows removal or insertion whilst the pan is in use.

• Always remove the handle when the pan is in use.

• The grill MUST only be used with the door open.

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 clockwise as far as possible. Hold a lighted 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. A non-toxic smoke may occur when using for the first time so open any windows and turn on

9-3 mechanical ventilators to help remove the smoke.

5.

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

6.

Flame Failure Device (FFD): the grill burner is fitted with a flame sensing probe, which will automatically cut off the gas supply in the event of the flame going out. In the event of the burner flames being accidentally 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.

Grilling should be carried out on the middle shelf position.

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 anticlockwise to the vertical position. Always make sure the control knob is in the off position when you have finished grilling.

CAUTION: The grill must only be used with the door open.

FITTED EQUIPMENT

USING THE OVEN

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 anti-clockwise to full rate

(gas mark 9). Hold a lighted 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 oven left for at least 1 minute before a further attempt to ignite the burner.

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.

5. Although the oven 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.

6. To turn off: Turn the control knob clockwise until the line on the control knob is aligned with the dot on the control panel.

7. Shelf: The shelf has been designed to allow a good circulation at the rear of the oven and is fitted with a raised bar to prevent trays or dishes making contact with the back of the oven. To remove a shelf, pull forward until it stops, raise at front and remove.

9-4

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.

Cooking guidelines

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.

Important: Always ensure food is properly cooked prior to serving.

Do’s and Don’ts

Do

Do

read the user instructions carefully before using the appliance for the first time.

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.

FITTED EQUIPMENT

Do

Do

Do

remove spills as soon as they occur.

turn handles away from the front of the cooker so that they cannot be caught accidentally.

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.

Leaks

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.

CIRCULATING COOKER HOOD

With 50 m 3 /h capacity ‘Circulair’ performs more efficiently than conventional cooker hoods - while offering a low DC-consumption of only 5 watts.

A roof mounted ventilator is no longer necessary as the cleaned air is returned downwards while the suction is concentrated along the edges. This creates an air-dome which stops fumes escaping.

Features:

• Lateral air suction ensures efficient performance with 50 m 3 /h.

• Easy installation as no roof-mounted ventilator is necessary.

• With 2 fan-speed regulation and integrated halogen lights.

• Washable grease filter and exchangeable carbon filter.

• Snap-on releases for easy access to filters and lamps.

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 Auto-

Sleeper dealer or the Motorhome Service

Centre at Willersey.

WARM AIR & HOT WATER

HEATING

A Truma liquid gas Combi 6E warm-air heater, with integrated hot water boiler, is fitted and operates on LPG and/or 230V electricity depending on the chosen mode of operation.

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.

At a temperature of approximately 3 deg C the automatic frost control safety/drain valve will open and drain the boiler.

Three different options are available for operating the unit.

Gas operation only: Propane/butane for autonomous use.

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.

With mixed operation, 230V electrical operation is preferred if the power requirement is low (e.g. for maintaining the 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.

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.

With gas operation the water is heated at the lowest burner setting. Once the water temperature is reached, the burner switches off.

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.

Note: Mixed operation is not possible. With this setting the unit automatically selects electrical operation. The gas burner is not enabled.

Before operation

Note: Heating is possible without restrictions with gas, electrical and mixed operation, with or without water.

Check to make sure the cowl is unobstructed.

Be sure to remove any covers that may be present.

Turn on the gas cylinder and open quickacting valve in the gas supply line.

Check whether the power supply fuse protection on the camp site is adequate for the 900W (3.9A) or 1800W (7.8A) that have been selected using the power selector switch.

The cable drum must be fully unwound in order to prevent the power cable from overheating.

FrostControl (safety/drain valve)

t = Rotary switch position “Operation” u = Push button position “Closed” w = Push button position “Drain” x = Drainage muff (led outside through floor of vehicle)

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

Closing the drain valve

Check if the rotary switch is set to

“Operation” (position t), meaning that it is parallel to the water connection and engaged.

Close the drain valve by activating the push button. The push button must engage in position (u) “closed”.

It can be manually closed with the push button (position u) and then the boiler filled only when the temperature at the drain valve is above approximately 7ºC.

Truma can provide a heating element (part no. 70070-01) as an accessory; it is inserted into FrostControl and warms it up to about

10ºC when Combi is switched on. This means that the boiler can be filled after a shorter time, irrespective of the temperature in the installation compartment.

Automatic opening of the drain valve

When the temperature is below approximately 3ºC at the drain valve, the drain valve will open automatically, the push button moves out (position w) and the water in the boiler drains out through the drainage muff (x).

9-16

Manual opening of the drain valve

Turn the rotary switch by 180º until it engages, whereby the push button moves out (position w). The water in the boiler drains out through the drainage muff (x).

The FrostControl drainage muff (x) must be free of contamination (slush, ice, leaves, etc.) at all times so the water can drain out easily.

No warranty given for frost damage.

Filling the water heater

Check if the rotary switch for the drain valve

(FrostControl) is set to “Operation”, meaning that it is parallel to the water connection and engaged.

Close the drain valve by pushing the push button until it engages.

Note: When the temperature at FrostControl is below about 7ºC, first switch on the heater to warm the installation compartment and

FrostControl. After several minutes, when the temperature at FrostControl is above 7ºC, the drain valve can be closed.

Switch on power for water pump (main or pump switch).

Open hot water taps in kitchen and bathroom

(set pre-selecting 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.

Note: 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.

WARNING: 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.

FITTED EQUIPMENT

Draining the water heater

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

Open hot water taps in kitchen and bathroom.

In order to check the water that is flowing out, place an appropriate container (capacity 10 litres) beneath the drain valve (FrostControl) drainage muff (x).

Turn the rotary switch on the drain valve by

180º until it engages, whereby the push button moves out and the drain valve opens.

Check whether all of the water in the boiler

(10 litres) has been drained into the container via the drain valve.

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 materials in the device that come into contact with water are drinking water safe.

Bio-film, deposits and limescale must be removed using chemicals to protect the unit from infestation by micro-organisms. Only

Chloride-free products must be used in order to prevent damage to the unit.

The effectiveness of the use of chemicals to combat micro-organisms in the unit can be increased by heating the water in the boiler to 70ºC at regular intervals.

To do this, on the control panel, select Gas

Operation, then select Summer Operation

60ºC.

Note: Once the water in the boiler has reached a temperature of 60ºC, the burner will switch off. 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

70ºC.

Fuses 12V

The fuse is in the electronics beneath the connection cover. Replace the unit’s fuse only with an identical fuse.

Device fuse: 10A - slow - (T 10A).

Fuses 230V

CAUTION: The fuse and the power supply lines must only be replaced by an expert!

WARNING: The unit must be disconnected from the mains (all poles) before opening the electronic housing lid.

The fuse in the power electronics (16) beneath the electronic housing lid.

This fine fuse must always be replaced with a fuse of the same type: 10A, slow, interrupting capacity “H”.

FITTED EQUIPMENT

Overheating protection 230V

The 230V heating facility has a mechanical overheating switch. If the 12V power supply is interrupted during operation or during the after-run period, for example, the temperatures within the unit could activate the overheating protection.

To reset the overheating protection, allow heater to cool, remove connection cover and press red reset button.

WATER TANK HEATERS

If specified, electrically heated, thermostatically controlled, water tank heater blankets are fitted to enable operation of your vehicle in cold conditions.

Operation

• Make sure that the tank heaters are only selected when there is liquid in the tanks.

• Press the defrost button on the control panel when you know the ambient temperature will approach freezing. The

LED will indicate that there is power to the circuit.

• If there is no liquid in the waste tank, the heater for it must be turned off using the isolation switch, ensuring that the LED is

NOT lit. For exact location of the switch refer to the Location of Key Facilities chart.

• When the temperature in the tank drops to approximately 7

°C the thermostat will turn the heating element ‘ON’.

• When the contents of the tank rise to

18

°C the thermostat will turn the system

‘OFF’.

9-18

• Turn the control panel switch ‘OFF’ when draining fluid, connecting electrical hook up or starting a generator. This will prevent damage to the built-in thermostat.

• Turn the control panel switch ‘OFF’ when the ambient temperature remains above freezing.

Maintenance

Periodically conduct a visual check of the system to ensure cables, connections and the heater pads are as installed and have not been damaged or become disconnected.

Moving door bins

Push a door bin out of the locking with both hands (as illustrated).

Place this door bin back in the desired position and push it back on the locking. The door bin is fixated again.

Organising food

After a minimum of 8 hours of cooling, the food can be placed in the refrigerator. Do not completely cover the cooling fins with food, to preserve an optimal performance of the refrigerator. Make sure air can still circulate around the fins.

FITTED EQUIPMENT

To prevent your refrigerator from iceformation, always cover liquid products, let warm products cool down before placing them in the refrigerator and don’t open the door longer than necessary.

To reduce the cooling time, store only pre-cooled food in the refrigerator.

To prevent the food from drying out or your refrigerator from odours, store food separately in closed boxes.

Use of freezer compartment

You can use the freezer compartment to keep food frozen or to make ice cubes with the special delivered tray.

Never keep carbonated liquids in the freezer compartment.

If the refrigerator has to perform for a longer period in internal vehicle temperature below 10 o

C, a constant regulation of temperature in the freezer compartment can’t be guaranteed. The temperature can increase and the food may defrost in the freezer compartment.

Making ice-cubes

Fill 2/3 of the ice-cube tray with water and put the tray in the freezer compartment. Make sure you only use drinking water.

Never eat ice-cubes or popsicles directly out of the freezer compartment. This can cause burn wounds.

To fasten the process, make ice-cubes at night, when the refrigerator has more capacity. Place the ice-cube tray in an empty freezer on the bottom and the back.

While driving

In Europe it is only allowed to run your refrigerator on gas while driving, if a gas system with break protection is installed and local regulations are respected.

Because of varying outside conditions during driving, good performance on gas can’t be guaranteed. Therefore Thetford does not advise to run your refrigerator on gas while driving.

Make sure all products in your refrigerator can’t move while driving.

Secure the bottles in the door with the bottle retainer and fixate all food on the storage shelves.

Door lock

When you close and press the door of the refrigerator, the door locks automatically.

While driving, this door lock also secures the door.

Some models have an extra security lock on the bottom of the refrigerator.

To be sure the door will not open while driving, push the black security lock over the pin on the door.

Never let children play or hide in the refrigerator. Children can be trapped and possibly suffocate.

Winter Use

When you are going to use the refrigerator with an outside temperature below 10ºC, install a suitable winter cover (as illustrated).

This cover will protect your refrigerator against too cold air and makes sure the refrigerator will still perform optimally.

Make sure you remove the winter cover again once the temperature is above 10ºC.

FITTED EQUIPMENT

Cleaning

It is important to regularly clean the refrigerator for optimal performance. Clean the inside with a soft cloth and a mild household cleaner. Use a wet, soft cloth for the outside of the refrigerator. Make sure the vents on the outside of the vehicle are always dust-tight.

Never clean your refrigerator with soap or agressive, caustic or soda-based cleaning agents.

The loose parts of the refrigerator are not suitable for the dishwasher.

Water through the vents may damage your refrigerator. Therefore install winter covers before washing your vehicle.

Switch off refrigerator

Before defrosting the refrigerator or storing your vehicle, switch off the refrigerator. Push the on/off switch (as illustrated) and hold it for

2 seconds to switch off the refrigerator. All lights will go out.

Defrosting

A layer of ice on the cooling fins will decrease the cooling capacity and durability of your refrigerator. Therefore your refrigerator is provided with an automatic defrost system, which prevents ice formation.

Despite this system, it is also possible to manually defrost your refrigerator on occasion. Remove all food, wrap it tightly in newspaper and put it on a cold place or in a insulated bag. Then open the doors. Put dry towels in the refrigerator to catch the remaining water. When the refrigerator is defrosted, thoroughly dry the inside.

Do not speed up the defrosting process by removing the ice layer with force or sharp objects or by using a hairdryer.

Storage

If you do not expect to use your refrigerator for a longer period, it is important to

9-23 thoroughly empty, defrost and clean the complete refrigerator. Then install the winter cover over the vents, to protect your refrigerator during storage.

To prevent odours and mould in the refrigerator, keep all doors open during storage.

Rotate the hook at door lock 45 degrees and lock it in place by using the strike plate (as illustrated).

Make sure the gas taps of the gas bottle are closed during storage.

Water through the vents may damage your refrigerator. Therefore install winter covers before washing your vehicle.

Disposal

Your refrigerator has been designed and manufactured with high quality materials and components, which can be recycled and reused. The cooling system contains ammonia as the coolant and ozone friendly cyclopentane as the blowing agent in the foam. The refrigerators are free of any CFCs/

HCFCs and HFCs.

When your refrigerator has reached its end of life, dispose the product according to the local rules. Do not dispose the refrigerator with normal household waste. The correct disposal of your old product will help prevent potential negative consequences to the environment and human health.

Ventilation

Your vehicle is fitted with Remis roof lights, a large one in the lounge and small ones above the kitchen and bed areas. If the optional air conditioning is fitted it replaces the roof light above the kitchen.

When the vehicle is being driven the roof ventilators should be fully closed. Wind noise may be reduced by closing the night blind.

WARNING: The roof ventilators are designed to flow a certain amount of air even when fully closed. Do not obstruct them - your safety depends on them.

Remis Roof Lights

The Remis roof lights incorporate a separate sliding flyscreen and night blind which can operate even if the ventilator is open. To open the large roof light, release the handle and wind until the required position is reached.

To open the smaller roof light, release the catch and push upwards until one of the holding positions is reached.

Climate control

If specified, your vehicle will be fitted with a

Truma Aventa Comfort air conditioning unit in the roof of the habitation area. This will supply fresh and dehumidified air in summer and warm air in winter. The unit can be set, using the digital Truma control panel or a handheld remote control unit, to operate in conjunction with the Combi heater to maintain any required room temperature. It is also possible to set timers for automatic switching on and off, and there is a sleep function for quiet cooling.

For full operating details please read carefully the instructions supplied with the vehicle.

Insulation

All body panels, except the front doors and engine bulkhead, are insulated with 50 mm thick, environmentally friendly re-cycled plastic insulation material, giving protection against extremes of hot and cold and also minimizing condensation. The rear wheel arches are covered with an insulating blanket.

Stainless Steel Sink and Drainer

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.

Habitation Battery

This is located in the black box below the offside sofa. The battery is a 100AH 12V, low maintenance, leisure battery which should only require attention at the annual habitation service.

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.

SMOKING PROHIBITED.

Electronic Control System/Battery

Charger

A Sargent EC500 Power Control System is fitted to your vehicle. It features a built-in battery charger, a digital control panel to provide intelligent control of the vehicle systems, and incorporates a smart charge feature. This monitors both leisure and vehicle batteries and automatically adjusts and directs the charger power (and solar power if a solar panel is installed) to maintain the leisure and vehicle batteries at an optimal level. For a full description of this unit including operating instructions and fault finding, refer to the Connection of Services section.

Electrical - General

The 230V AC sockets fitted to your vehicle are suitable only for medium demand items such as televisions and hairdryers. Safety/ overload protection is provided by the MCBs located under the cover on the front of the electrical control box.

An EM40 electrical interface adaptor box is located 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.

At least one 12 volt socket is provided in your vehicle. For its position, please refer to the

Location of Key Facilities chart.

The mains hookup cable, provided as standard with the vehicle, is stored under one of the seats.

Retrofit Options

Please consult either your local Auto-Sleeper dealer or the Motorhome Service Centre,

Willersey for a comprehensive list of suitable options available for fitment to your vehicle.

AIR SUSPENSION

Your vehicle has been fitted with a supplementary air suspension system on the rear axle. This is called Air Top, is manufactured by AL-KO, and uses additional air springs to improve the quality of the vehicle ride.

The operating pressure may be adjusted by the vehicle user to suit their requirements.

The system does not increase the carrying capacity of the rear axle, or the vehicle as a whole.

Use

The pressure is adjusted by attaching a garage airline or footpump to the car tyre type valves located in the passenger door stepwell. Adjust the pressure on the gauge to any value in the range stated for the optimum working pressure, in order to obtain the ride characteristics you require.

If you choose to have different pressures side to side, ensure that the difference between them is not greater than 0.7 bar (10 psi).

Do not inflate to more than the maximum pressure.

Maintenance

No maintenance is required, although the system will be checked at the annual habitation service.

Washing with water is permitted to remove any salt which may collect during road use.

If there are any problems with the system contact your dealer, or an AL-KO approved service centre.

Specification

Optimum working pressure: 1.8 bar (26 psi) to 2.5 bar (36 psi).

Minimum working pressure: 1.5 bar (22 psi).

Maximum working pressure: 3.0 bar (44 psi).

CARE OF YOUR MOTORHOME

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.

A car shampoo without wax is recommended.

This maintenance should be carried out as follows:

Servicing

Servicing of the conversion is the responsibility of your local franchised Auto-

Sleeper dealer to whom all queries should be referred. Your local base vehicle commercial dealer should carry out servicing of the base vehicle.

GLASSFIBRE BODYWORK AND

ACRYLIC WINDOWS

General Cleaning

At regular intervals, you should wash the fibreglass bodywork with a recognised cleaner for use on fibreglass gel coats. A car shampoo without wax is recommended.

Should marks remain, use a cleaner with chemical and abrasion agents formulated for use on gel coats.

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.

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 (2000 grit or finer)

10-1 abrasive paper. Rubbing compound will then 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.

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.

Cleaning Interior Plastics

Interior plastic parts, such as the shower and wash basin, should only be cleaned with warm soapy water, or non-abrasive cleaners specified as being suitable for use on plastic items.

Recommended Materials

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.

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 and can also be used to polish out scratches on plastic windows.

Finishing Cloths: These are very fine grade cloths, woven and thus easily washable that are recommended by Farecia for use with their materials.

The above can be purchased from our

Service Centre, Willersey (01386) 853511.

CARE OF YOUR MOTORHOME

UPHOLSTERY MAINTENANCE

Cleaning

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.

Fabric Care

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.

Whenever possible, avoid exposing the upholstery to direct sunlight which might eventually cause the colour to fade.

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

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.

Small marks in velour type fabrics can usually be removed by stroking along the pile using a small brush and warm water.

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.

Work Surfaces

Whilst these are hard wearing, hot pans should not be placed directly on these surfaces, since damage may result.

STAINLESS STEEL

COMPONENTS

Internal

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.

GAS INSTALLATION

All gas vents and flue pipes should be periodically checked for damage and should be kept free from dirt.

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.

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.

CARE OF YOUR MOTORHOME

SEAT RESTRAINTS

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.

WATER SYSTEM

Fresh Water Tank

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 Auto-

Sleeper, the fresh water system is thoroughly flushed with fresh water.

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.

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.

10-3

WINTERISATION

General

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.

Water System

The water system should be fully emptied, by opening the drain valve located adjacent to the water heater (see heater section for more details), 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. Take the vehicle for a short drive, with all the drain taps open, in order to remove the last drops of water from the tanks and water system. Remove all sink plugs to allow the water system to breathe.

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.

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 indeed the roof ventilators have sufficient fixed ventilation to allow the interior of the vehicle to breathe satisfactorily.

CARE OF YOUR MOTORHOME

Exterior

Fit, where appropriate, winter covers to the fridge ventilator grilles. 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.

Electrical

Turn the electrical system off using the

‘Shutdown Switch’ on the front of the control box (see diagram & ‘Activating the System’ in section 7). This turns off all the leisure electronics apart from any alarm and tracker power feeds.

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.

Automotive

Follow the advice laid down by the base vehicle manufacturer. In particular,

• 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.

WARNING: Do not exceed the maximum pressure noted on the sidewall of the tyre.

Alternatively, jack up the vehicle to relieve the load on the tyres.

• 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.

RECOMMENDED ANNUAL

SERVICE CHECK FOR MOTOR

CARAVAN BODIES AND

CONVERSIONS

It is recommended that the annual service is carried out by an approved motorhome service centre.

Introduction

This entire section offers guidelines for the checking of a motorhome’s habitation area and to ensure continual compliance with

EN1646-1.

It does not cover any part of the base vehicle, although there may be minor overlapping

(such as tyre pressures, cab seats, internal lights, battery and windows) in a van conversion. The base vehicle must be serviced in accordance with the chassis manufacturer’s instructions.

Reference should also be made to:

• Any owner’s manual or equivalent supplied with the vehicle by the motorhome converter.

• Appliance manufacturer’s instructions.

• Driver’s handbook or equivalent supplied by the chassis manufacturer.

• A vehicle is accepted for service at the dealer’s discretion.

• Any defects, repairs, adjustments, cleaning or lubrication required will be noted on the checklist. The customer’s approval will be obtained before any work is done.

Not all of the equipment mentioned in this manual is fitted as standard to every motorhome.

This guide is published as an aide de memoire for dealers. Any work carried out following the check, and the sufficiency of the work in the check itself, is subject to the contract between the customer and the dealer.

Check for its presence. The customer must be advised against its use.

12-3

SERVICE DETAILS

SECTION 7 - ELEVATING ROOFS

Lifting Mechanism

Gas struts or spring struts should be checked for corrosion (particularly on the piston rods of gas struts), smooth operation when operating roof up and down and to ensure that they support the roof when fully up.

Check attachment points of struts to body and roof.

Canvas side walls

Check for satisfactory attachment to body and roof.

Check for splits or holes, particularly at fold lines.

Check that the canvas stows satisfactorily when roof is lowered. (A waterproofing check will be done at the request of the customer).

Solid Side Wall

Check sides and end panels fold up and down correctly, that they seal against each other where appropriate and that retaining mechanisms are satisfactory.

Check all hinges for security and freedom from strain.

Locking of Roof

It is important to ensure that, when the roof is in the travelling position, it is safely and positively locked down. Any locking retaining mechanism should be carefully examined.

SECTION 8 - GAS SYSTEMS

Cylinders, Regulators and Feed Hoses

Establish that the cylinder and feed hose is compatible.

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 cylinder compartment vents and gas drop hole in floor are free from obstruction.

Check seals on internal doors.

Hose and Piping

Check any flexible hose is of an approved type. Check its condition and any evidence of cracking.

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.

Appliances

In general, the checking of gas appliances can be divided into the following:

1. Cleaning.

2. Operation of controls.

3. Correct flame structure.

4. Flues.

5. Flame failure device.

6. Security.

Cleaning

• 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.

12-4

SERVICE DETAILS

Controls

• 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 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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Flues:

• 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.

Flame Failure Device (FFD):

• Where fitted, FFD should be checked to ensure satisfactory operation. After the

12-5 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.

Security:

• Check appliance is securely fixed to the vehicle/furniture and will be free from rattles. Where applicable, check that water pipes are satisfactorily attached with no sign of leakage.

Protection of adjacent surfaces:

• Check that surfaces adjacent to open flame cooking appliance have adequate protection.

Inspections:

• It is recommended that inspections are carried out by a qualified trained fitter trained to GAS SAFE standards.

SECTION 9 - WATER SYSTEM

Before operating the water system, a visual check of the following items may show up an obvious leak source.

Fresh Water Tank

Check condition, fill tank and check for leaks.

Check the external filler and filler pipe to tank.

Check for satisfactory venting.

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).

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.

SERVICE DETAILS

Check delivery hose and electric cable are secure and satisfactory.

System Check

Operate pump. Check all piping for leaks.

Operate taps and shower. If a hot water system is fitted, it can be checked for leaks etc., using cold water. (Note: Aerated water from tap could be due to a leak on the suction side of the pump).

Waste Water System

With water running through the drain pipes, check for leaks and satisfactory draining of water from sinks etc.

Couplings and Fluids

Check that the appropriate markings are used - blue for fresh water, grey for waste water. Ensure a sealing off cover is supplied for each coupling.

Check that filler positions are designated

“petrol”, “diesel” or “water” as appropriate.

Toilet Waste Tank

Check that any fixed tank intended to receive discharge from a toilet is fitted with either a level or full indicator.

SECTION 10 - ELECTRICAL

SYSTEMS

Extra Low Voltage 12 Volts (excluding vehicle)

Battery/ies:

• Check battery/ies for condition.

• Check connections, wires, fuses and relays appertaining to the habitation electrics.

Wiring:

• Examine all visible wiring.

• Check all connections and joints are sound and satisfactory.

Fuses/Fuse Holders:

• Ensure that fuses and fuse holders used to protect the habitation electrics are satisfactory and that fuse ratings are compatible with the circuit appliances being protected.

Appliances:

• Inspect all appliances for damage, signs of overheating and secure fixing.

Function test all appliances.

Mains 230 Volt System

It is recommended that the inspection and certification of the 230 volt system be carried out by a qualified electrician who is an approved contractor of the NICEIC (National

Inspection Council for Electrical Installation

Contracting) or a member of the Electrical

Contractors Assocation.

SECTION 11- VENTILATION

High Level

Check all high level ventilators, including roof lights, are free from obstruction and allow a free flow of air.

Low Level

Check all low level ventilators are free from obstructions and allow a free flow of air. If the ventilator is manually adjustable then ensure the mechanism is free and operating correctly.

SERVICE DETAILS

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 able to arrange for the refrigerator of your vehicle to be checked here at the Service Centre by a qualified engineer. Our own on site personnel are qualified to service Dometic fridges, and for other makes we will arrange for a visit by the appropriate service engineer.

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.

You will see also that we check that key components are serviceable (fire extinguishers etc) and furthermore that where appropriate, items are lubricated and checked for serviceability.
