GENERAL SAFETY
(xi)
If you suspect there is a gas leak
please open all the windows then
vacate the motorhome. Switch off the
gas supply if it is safe to do so. Then
contact your nearest Elddis Retailer to
arrange for them to check the gas
system.
(xii) Do not leave children under 14 years
of age unattended in your motorhome.
(xiii) Only those seats designated for
travelling should be occupied when the
motorhome is in motion.
(xiv) Please note that motorhomes are
covered by the seat belt regulations,
which came into force in October 2006.
These require children that are under
12 years old and also under 135cm in
height to be seated in either child seats
or on bolster cushions.
(xv) Ensure you remove all items from the
microwave before travelling.
(xvi) It is essential that you have securely
closed and locked the habitation door
before setting off on any journey.
GENERAL SAFETY
Please read before using your new
motorhome.
In order for you to get the most out of your
new Elddis motorhome it is necessary for you
to be aware of the following:
(i)
Do not obstruct ventilators (See Safety
Section - Ventilation)
(ii)
Inspect the flexible gas hose regularly
for deterioration and renew as
necessary, with approved type, as and
in any case no later than the expiry
date stated on the hose.
(iii)
It is recommended that you provide a
dry powder fire extinguisher complying
with ISO 7165 of at least 1 KG
capacity by the exit door and a fire
blanket next to the cooker. Ensure you
read the ‘advice to occupier label’ fitted
to your motorhome.
(iv) Never use portable cooking or heating
equipment inside your motorhome. Do
not use your fitted cooking equipment
as heating at any time.
(v)
Never allow modification to your gas or
electrical system unless qualified
persons carry them out. A Gas Safe

Proper And Safe Use Of Storage
Areas In Motorhomes
The storage areas provided in your
motorhome are designed solely for the
purpose of carrying personal possessions;
these areas must not be used:
• As a habitation area (e.g. living, sleeping
or cooking).
• To carry passengers, animals or
livestock.
• For the installation (or use) of any LPG
gas operated appliances, (unless
supplied fitted by the manufacturer).
• For carrying LPG gas bottle cylinders,
(unless designated by the manufacturer).
• To carry any flammable liquids, (unless
properly stored, sealed and secured).
• For the operation of an electrical
generator.
• In such a way that the loading exceeds
the payload limit, as defined by the
manufacturer.
• Such that the weight distribution of the
vehicle means non-compliance with the
vehicle axle loads.
2-1
GENERAL SAFETY
VENTILATION
Ventilation in Separate Bedrooms
All motorhomes manufactured by Elddis are
ventilated at both high and low level in
accordance with BS EN 721 Safety
Ventilation. The fixed ventilation points fitted
in your motorhome must not be blocked
under any circumstances as your safety may
depend upon them. It is advisable that the
fixed ventilation points are checked and
cleaned (where necessary) on a regular
basis.
In motorhomes with separated sleeping
areas, separate ventilation is required and is
provided via a roof skylight at high level and
a ventilator at low level within a bed box.
Gas Dispersal Holes
All appliances and gas unions have a gas
dispersal hole nearby. It is essential that
these are not blocked or made ineffective.
FIRE SAFETY
High-Level Ventilation
Fire Extinguishers
This is always provided by fixed ventilation
within the fitted roof skylight. These roof
skylights should be cleaned annually by use
of a small brush to remove any dust that may
have accumulated around the mesh fitted.
On some roof skylights the mesh can be
easily removed to aid cleaning. On
fan-assisted roof skylights it is essential that
the fan is switched off prior to cleaning.
It is recommended that a 1 kg (2lb) minimum
capacity dry powder fire extinguisher be
carried inside your motorhome at all times. A
pan fire must not have an extinguisher aimed
at it, but must be smothered with a fire
blanket.
In Case Of Fire
(i) Get everyone out of the motorhome as
quickly as possible using whichever exit
is quickest including windows. Do not
stop to collect any personal items.
Low-Level Ventilation
All Elddis Autoquest Motorhomes have fixed
low level ventilation provided. These
ventilators are covered with plastic covers
designed to prevent them from being
obstructed by items placed within the bed
box. These covers can be removed by
undoing the two screws in order to facilitate
cleaning the ventilators, however these
covers must be replaced once cleaning is
completed.
(ii) Raise the alarm. Call the fire brigade.
(iii) Turn off the gas container valve if safe to
do so.
Fire Retardant Foams
All motorhomes are equipped with either
Combustion Modified High Resilient (CMHR)
foam cushions or sprung mattresses and fire
retardent fabric. All furnishings and fabrics
used by Elddis comply with the Furniture and
Furnishings (Fire Safety) Regulations. In
addition all upholstery is made of fire
retardant fabric.
It is essential for your safety that these
ventilators are not blocked at any time.
Habitation Door
Note: Please ensure you only remove the
key from the door with the key in the vertical
position (12 o’clock).
2-2
PREPARING FOR THE ROAD
PREPARING FOR THE ROAD
Before venturing out on to the road with your
motorhome, it is important that you prepare
correctly.
MOTORHOME WEIGHTS EXPLAINED
Mass in Running Order
The weight of your motorhome as it leaves
the factory, as new with standard fixtures and
fittings, plus an allowance for the driver of
75kgs, the mass of the fuel when the tank is
full and an allowance of 10kgs per gas bottle,
the number of gas bottles equal to the
number of connections provided at the
regulator.
Maximum Technically Permissible
Laden Mass
The maximum mass the vehicle can be when
fully laden for use on the road.
User Payload
The load margin (payload), this represents
the difference between the Mass in Running
Order and the Maximum Technically
Permissible Laden Mass. It shows the
maximum weight that can be loaded into your
motorhome, covering items such as food,
crockery, cutlery, clothing, bedding, etc.
Loading
It should be noted that even weight
distribution is a major factor in making your
motorhome an easy and pleasant vehicle to
drive. Care should therefore be taken in
balancing the load, ensuring that heavy items
are well spaced and are in as low a position
as possible, for example, low cupboards and
bed boxes.
SENSIBLE LOADING
HOW TO APPORTION WEIGHT
Note: Light items are considered as clothing
and bedding. It is not recommended to travel
with tinned items in overhead lockers.
IMPORTANT: Do not exceed maximum
technical permissible laden mass for your
motorhome.
Roof Racks
Some models of motorhomes have, available
as an option, a roof rack and ladder. Care is
needed when using this facility. We
recommend you exercise extreme caution
when loading and unloading.
CAUTION: Do not allow anyone to climb onto
the roof. Do not exceed the stated maximum
load. Items fitted other than standard
equipment will deplete the payload stated in
this handbook.
Roof Loading
All motorhomes have a specially designed
roof rack system fitted or available as an
optional extra. The roof of each motorhome is
strengthened to accommodate the roof rack.
Please note: The roof rack is capable of
withstanding a maximum weight of 12 stone/
76kgs. Static roof loading or top box loading
should be limited to a maximum of 76kgs
including contents, or the limit set by the top
box manufacturer, whichever is the lower
figure.
WARNING: Under NO circumstances walk
on the roof section
Before venturing out on to the road with your
motorhome, it is important that you prepare
correctly.
Roof loads should be evenly distributed and
securely fastened, but care must be taken
not to overtighten straps or ropes to the point
where roof rails or brackets may become
distorted, particularly as during braking and
cornering, forces exerted by straps or ropes
are greatly increased.
It is also worth noting that when carrying
heavy or large objects on the roof, the
vehicles handling may change due to the
resultant displacement of the centre of gravity
and the increased area exposed to the wind.
3-1
PREPARING FOR THE ROAD
BEFORE MOVING OFF
(xvi) You are strongly recommended not to
carry passengers unless they are
seated in a designated passenger
seat.
Whenever making a journey with your
motorhome, either setting off on holiday or
returning home, it is good practice to run
through this simple checklist.
(xvii) Ensure all tables have been stored in
their designated table storage position.
(i)
Close and secure all cupboards and
drawers and secure any loose articles.
(ii)
Do not store tins, bottles, etc. in
overhead lockers.
(xviii) Ensure you remove all items from the
microwave and cocktail cabinet before
setting off.
(iii)
Close and secure all windows and
roof lights.
(xix) Check all the road lights are
operational.
(iv)
Leave all curtains and blinds open to
aid visibility.
Pulling Off
(v)
Check that gas cylinders are securely
fastened and that the valve on the gas
cylinder is turned off. Also ensure that
the gas locker door is securely locked.
(vii)
Switch off 240volt supply at source;
disconnect mains cable and store in an
appropriate place.
(viii)
Check that the battery is secure and
that the battery box door is locked.
(ix)
Ensure the fridge is on 12V operation
and door lock is set.
(Note: the electrical relays will allow
the fridge to be run on the vehicle
battery when the engine is running.)
(x)
Remove any external fresh water
connections etc.
(xi)
Make sure any heavy articles are
stored in accordance with the loading
procedure.
(xii)

Bicycle Racks
Fitting a bicycle rack to the rear panel of a
motorhome will affect how weight is
distributed. There are restraints to be aware
of with such fitments.
The maximum loading allowed on the back
panel is 75 kgs including the weight of the
bike rack and bicycles.
The motorhome must also be balanced to
take into account the new weight distribution.
Weight must be distributed evenly.
Bicycle racks are not standard fit or supplied
as an optional extra by Elddis. Elddis cannot
be held responsible for problems related to a
bicycle rack fitted by a third party. A copy of
the rear panel drawing must be obtained by
the retailer or service centre from Elddis to
ensure correct fixing points are located.
Tow Bars
Your new Elddis motorhome has been
designed to accept a Witter tow bar. This has
been approved via type approval to ensure it
is safe to use and is the only tow bar
approved for fitting to Elddis motorhomes.
The maximum load allowed on the tow ball is
100kgs and the maximum overhang is
specified by the tow bar when fitted. The
fitting points for the tow bar are designated
by the fixing hole in the Witter extensions
fitted to the Peugeot chassis and full details
are available upon request from Elddis.
(xiv) If a step is used, ensure it is put away
before moving off.
(xv)
Pull away smoothly.
Avoid wear and tear on clutch and
transmission by taking extra care.
Change gears smoothly.
Try not to jerk the clutch.
Your new Elddis motorhome has been
designed to carry passengers in
designated passenger seats only. The
fitting of a 3-point seat belt can identify
these seats. Any seat not fitted with a
3-point seat belt is not designated as a
passenger seat.

MOTORWAY HANDLING
MOTORWAY HANDLING
Best Practice
To gain the most enjoyment and ensure a
long life for your motorhome, the following
should be observed:
•
Do not bump kerbs with wheels.
•
When overtaking ensure sufficient
clearance is given to other vehicles.
•
Your motorhome will not accelerate as
quicly as a car, so take this into account
when attempting to overtake other
vehicles.
•
Carry out all manoeuvers as smoothly as
possible.
•
Use the wing mirror to check your
motorhome has cleared has cleared the
other vehicle.
•
Slow down and take care when driving
over raised speed bumps, ‘sleeping
policemen’ or when embarking/
disembarking ferries.
•
In high or cross winds, travelling downhill
or in conditions of poor visibility reduce
your speed.
•
High-sided vehicles can cause air
buffeting so extra care must be taken
when passing or being passed. Leave as
much space as possible when overtaking
these types of vehicles
Speed Limits
Be sure to observe all statutory speed limits
and adapt your speed to take account of
prevailing weather and road conditions.
Towing Your Motorhome
In the unlikely event that you have to tow
your motorhome, the towing point is fitted
within the front bumper, behind the
removable flap provided by Peugeot. The
towing hook can be found in the tool box
supplied by Peugeot, found under the front
passenger seat.

ARRIVING ON SITE
RAMP
ARRIVING ON SITE
CHECK SITE REGULATIONS
On arrival at a campsite, you should always
check the site regulations. This will help avoid
any unnecessary conflict with site
management and other site users.
SELECTING A PITCH
Carefully select where you wish to place your
motorhome. The site should be as level as
possible, preferably not under or near trees,
well drained and away from possible boggy
areas. Consider how you will move the
motorhome when it is time to leave the site.
On sloping ground it is better to pitch facing
downhill, especially during wet weather.
LATERAL LEVELLING (SIDE TO SIDE)
Reverse onto your pitch about a foot further
back than you wish to end up. Then place the
levelling ramp in front of the wheel that needs
to be raised.
A quick glance at your pitch should tell you if
you are likely to need side to side leveling i.e.
levelling across the axle. On uneven ground
lateral levelling is accomplished by the use of
a leveler jack or ramp and a spirit level
placed ‘across’ the motorhome floor.
Place a spirit level parallel to the axle or just
inside the motorhome door. It helps to have
two people at this point. One should drive the
motorhome very slowly forward moving the
wheel up the ramp, and the other should
indicate when the spirit level bubble is in the
middle.
LEVELLER JACK
Whichever method you use, once level,
apply the motorhome handbrake and chock
the motorhome wheel if necessary.
Place the leveller jack, folded flat, in front of
the wheel that is to be raised to level the
axle. Drive the motorhome onto the leveler
jack and adjust the height until the spirit level
shows that the motorhome is laterally level.

GETTING STARTED
CONNECTING TO MAINS SUPPLY ON
ARRIVAL AT SITE
GETTING STARTED
You have arrived at your destination and now
want to start to enjoy your new Elddis
motorhome. The following is a step by step
guide to connecting your services and getting
everything in your motorhome working.
Before connecting the motorhome installation
to the mains supply, check that:
(i)
The mains supply is suitable for your
installation and appliances, i.e. whether
it is AC or DC and whether it is at the
correct voltage and frequency.
(ii)
Your motorhome is properly earthed.
Never accept a supply from a socket
outlet or plug having only two pins, or
from a lighting outlet.
ELECTRICITY
Power Supply Charger
Your motorhome is fitted with a power supply/
charger. This will charge the motorhome
leisure battery when fitted and also power the
12V systems in your motorhome.
(iii) Any residual current device (earth
leakage circuit breaker) in the mains
supply to the motorhome has been
tested within the last month. In case of
doubt, consult the site owner or their
agent.
It is recommended that you always carry a
leisure battery.
The Charger is fully automatic and will not
overcharge the leisure battery.
Elddis recommend that you fit a good leisure
battery rated at least 85 amp hours.
(iv) Make sure that the switch at the site
supply point is off and that all electrical
equipment in the motorhome is switched
off by ensuring your motorhome mains
isolating switch on the MCB (miniature
circuit breaker) is in the ‘OFF’ position.
12v Systems:
Your motorhome is fitted with an automatic
system for selection of power.
When connected to the 230V site supply the
automatic Power Supply/Charger will charge
the leisure battery and the 12V systems.
Once the above checks have been made:
(v) Remove any cover to the electricity inlet
provided on the motorhome, and insert
the female connector of the flexible
orange supply cable as shown.
When the ignition is switched on the 12V
system in the motorhome is automatically
switched off, vehicle power is supplied to the
refrigerator and battery charging is in
operation.

OVERSEAS ELECTRICAL
CONNECTION
Please 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.
A means of checking the polarity of the mains
supply when overseas is recommended.
There are available several proprietary
makes of equipment for the purpose.
DISCONNECTING MAINS SUPPLY
WHEN LEAVING SITE
(i) Switch ‘OFF’ at the motorhome mains
isolating switch.
(ii) Remove the male plug from the site
supply.
(iii) Disconnect the female plug from the
motorhome and store the cable in an
appropriate locker.
If it can be achieved, it is preferable to
connect live to live and neutral to neutral to
maintain full electrical protection.
CHECK all motorhome equipment is set-up
to accept the site supply before actually
switching on.

GETTING STARTED
Gas Regulator
GAS SUPPLY
Your motorhome is designed to operate using
either propane or butane liquefied petroleum
gas at 30M/bar. Gas can be obtained from
your motorhome dealer. Your motorhome is
designed to accept a maximum 2 x 6kg Calor
Lite propane cylinders available from
motorhome dealers and Calor gas retailers.
For further information please visit
www.calorlite.co.uk.
Your Motorhome is
fitted with a Road safe
gas regulator.
The operating
instructions are given
below.
Intended use
The Truma SecuMotion
gas-pressure regulator is
a device that ensures
uniform gas pressure (30
mbar) with a permissible
inlet pressure range of
0.3 - 16 bar.
Connection
Make sure that heating and cooking
appliances and gas cylinders are switched
off.
Each gas appliance is connected to its own
gas isolation tap under the cooker. These are
identified on the tap via a label. Below is a
key to identify each label.
To operate the tap the arrow on the tap
shows the direction of flow for the gas. The
arrow should be pointing towards the
appliance for the appliance to operate. There
will be a small label next to the bank of taps
under the cooker, which is also reproduced
below:
SecuMotion regulates and monitors the
consumption of liquid gas. If the specified
consumption is exceeded or if the pressure at
the regulator outlet falls below 27 mbar (due
to gas pipe break, for example), the integrated
gas flow monitor will shut off the flow of gas. A
high pressure hose with a hose-break safety
device is essential for connecting the
SecuMotion gas pressure regulator to the gas
cylinder.
Truma offers hoses with common connection
fittings to enable use of gas cylinders with
various valve connection sizes.
Water Heater
Your Motorhome has been supplied with a
hose for connection to a propane gas
bottle.
Cooking Appliance
Space Heater
Hob
Refrigerator
Gas On/Off
The integrated overpressure safety device
complies with the requirements for a
commercial safety device against
impermissible pressure increases throughout
Europe, a type tested liquefied-gas heating
system may be used while driving (according
to the EU directive 2001/56/EC) if the system
includes a regulator with an appropriately
configured gas installation.
Pressure regulating devices and hoses must
be replaced with new ones no more than 10
years after their date of manufacture (every 8
years if used commercially). This is the
responsibility of the operator.

The use of upright gas cylinders from which
gas is taken in the gas phase is mandatory
for the operation of gas regulators, gas
equipment and gas systems. Gas cylinders
from which gas is taken in the liquid phase
(e.g. for fork lifts) must not be used, since
they would result in damage to the gas
system.
Anytime after making changes, check the
hose connection to the cylinder valve for
leaks (see “Checking for leaks in the high
pressure area”).
Exchanging hoses.
Please use the included screwing tool to

gas cylinder (or from the slip-on adapter)
and from the regulator inlet.
- Close the gas cylinder’s valve.
When performing a hose change, please
ensure that the white gasket provided with
the hose (hose outlet - regulator inlet) is
correctly installed and not damaged.
We recommend that the gasket (part no.
50020-76300) be replaced with every hose
change.
Changing a gas cylinder
- Screw country-specific high pressure hose
to SecuMotion inlet and cylinder (or to
adapter).
Please use the included screwing tool to

GETTING STARTED
High Pressure Gas Hoses
WATER SYSTEM
You should only connect to this regulator
using a length of approved high-pressure
hose not exceeding 450mm from the gas
cylinder to the regulator. These approved
high-pressure hoses are available from your
Elddis Retailer. These hoses are connected
using screw thread fittings, which will make a
seal if connected and tightened using a
spanner. Once the hose is securely
connected turn on the gas tap above the
regulator, then turn on the gas bottle to allow
gas to flow into the motorhome.
Filling your fresh water tank
Your Encore motorhome is fitted with a
standard water inlet which can be filled using
a hose pipe connected to a tap placed into
the water filler point.
Please take care not to over fill your tank it is
advised that someone monitors the water
level in the tank while filling is in progress.
Waste Water Tank
Your new Elddis motorhome is also fitted with
a 70Litre waste water tank. All waste water
excluding the toilet waste will run into the
waste water tank. The level of water in the
tank can be monitored using the control
panel. Opening the grey waste outlet
provided on the outside of the motorhome
empties the tank. Open the tap when the
outlet is over a drain and the water will run
out of the tank.
In order to make all your motorhome gas
appliances operational it is necessary to
open each appliance gas tap as detailed in
previous column. All your gas appliances
should now be operational. Instructions on
how to use each appliance are detailed later
in your handbook.
WARNING: Aerosols and highly flammable
liquids must not be stored in the
compartment behind, or adjacent to, any
gas appliance. Some industrial LPG
appliances operate at high pressure and
require a ‘high pressure’ regulator. This
often has an adjusting handle on it.
NEVER use such a regulator on a
motorhome.
Draining Down Your Water System
Ventilation holes must be clear at all
times.
(i)
It is essential that you drain down your
motorhome water system when it is not
in use. This is most important during
winter months to protect against frost
damage
(ii)
Disconnect the water pump and switch
off power supply.
(iii) Open the safety drain valve on the water
heater located next to the water heater.
(iv) Open all taps and remove all plugs from
sinks and showers. Lever operated taps
should have the lever put into the up and
central position.
(v) Open both the blue and grey drain
outlets on the outside of your
motorhome.
(vi) Adjust the level of the motorhome to
ensure that the drain outlet is at the
lowest point of the motorhome.
After 30 minutes level the motorhome and
prepare it for storage if necessary.

GAS SAFETY ADVICE
GAS SAFETY ADVICE
LPG GAS SYSTEM
In the event of a suspected gas leak the gas
must be turned off using the isolation valve
on the gas bottle. A competent gas fitter
should then check the system before it is
used/reused.
Elddis does not recommend the use of any
external cylinders. All cylinders in use should
be within the gas locker provided. If you wish
to utilise a larger cylinder and have this
outside the gas locker then the connecting
hose must not exceed 750mm.
Regularly check flexible gas hose, joints and
connections for tightness. Finally, make sure
that each gas appliance is working efficiently
to the recommendations of the appliance
manufacturers.
It is recommended that no flammable
material is stored or placed within 300mm of
any open flame. Your attention is also drawn
to the fact that the surface of the Space
Heater in your motorhome will get hot when
in use. You are advised not to use any
additional gas appliances outside your
motorhome.
See Index - Ventilation
FACTS ABOUT LPG
•
LPG is not poisonous.
•
Bi-products are harmless.
•
LPG is dangerous if all air and oxygen is
excluded.
•
LPG has been given a smell by the
manufacturers in order to identify leaks.
•
The gas is heavier than air and therefore
sinks to the lowest point.
Please ensure that you have read the
operating instructions for each gas appliance
contained in your Owners Information Pack.
Please ensure that any gas hose left
unconnected is protected from dirt or other
foreign bodies entering the hose.
AWNING SPACES, LPG AND
APPLIANCE EXHAUST
There is no danger of pollution of an
enclosed awning space from the LPG
exhaust from a refrigerator venting into it.
Space heaters may produce sufficient
exhaust to pollute the awning space, if it is
totally enclosed, from a general comfort,
smell and hygiene point of view. In extreme
cases there could be a build up of carbon
dioxide to a dangerous level. Motorhome
owners are advised to allow some fresh air
circulation in the awning space when such
appliances are in use.
Please note: Ventilation holes must be clear
at all times.

Battery Maintenance
Winter Storage
Warning: get the battery on charge as soon as you
can. Leave it and the battery will be damaged,
possibly beyond repair
During winter storage, please ensure that the
leisure battery is fully charged. Dependent on
the battery’s capacity and age, it will require
recharging at regular intervals.
Damaged: Replace battery
You must check the charge of your battery
and recharge if necessary on a regular basis.
This will depend on your leisure battery’s
capacity, age and state of charge. Charge at
regular intervals.
Generators / Charger
Points to remember
At least once every 3 years, the motorhome
electrical installation should be inspected and
tested, and a report on its condition obtained,
as prescribed in British Standard BS7671.
•
Prolonged discharge causes harmful
sulfation and may damage a battery.
•
Discharged (dead) batteries are prone to
freezing in cold temperatures.
•
For peak performance never let a battery
sit discharged for long periods of time.
•
Over discharged batteries are
permanently damaged and need to be
replaced.
All electrical equipment fitted in your new
motorhome can be run from either a
controlled generator or charger whose output
is maintained between 11volts and 14volts.
230v POWER SUPPLY
Mains Unit
The Mains Unit replaces the conventional
fuse box. Similar, but larger ones are often
fitted in new houses. The unit, normally
located in the wardrobe, gives overloads and
earth leakage protection for the 230V
electrical supply in your motorhome.
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 12.2v ref table. Discharging a battery below this
figure will cause permanent damage.
Overheating and gassing will occur when reconnected to the mains supply.
For normal operation all switches on the unit
need to be in the ON position. The switches
on the left of the unit are known as MCB’s
(miniature circuit breakers). These take the
place of the conventional fuse but are more
convenient. In the event of a fault the MCB
‘trips’ i.e. automatically moves to the OFF
8-1
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
position. After elimination of the fault the
MCB can be re-set by switching to the ON
position (against the spring pressure in an
upwards direction). If an earth fault develops,
or a person was to touch a live piece of
equipment, the leakage of current to earth
should immediately operate the RCD
(residual current device) and ‘trip’ the main
switch, to the OFF position. This switch can
only be re-set after elimination of the fault.
AUTOMATIC CHARGING SYSTEM
The battery charger will operate automatically
when the motorhome is connected to the
mains outlet on a motorhome site. The 12V
system, with the exception of the 12V
refrigerator and battery charging, will not
operate when the motorhome when the
motorhome engine is running.
CHECK all motorhome equipment is set-up
to accept the site supply before actually
switching on.
Please note: In case of difficulty, consult an
approved electrical installation contractor
(who may be the local electricity board). It is
dangerous to attempt modifications and
additions yourself.
INTERNAL LIGHTS
Your new Encore motorhome is fitted with all
LED lighting.
CAUTION: Lamp holder-plugs (bayonet- cap
adaptors) should not be used under any
circumstances.
You should not need to replace these long
life lights, however should the need arrive
please only replace these lights with identical
lights which are available from your Elddis
retailer.
Resetting the RCD
To re-set, operate the switch as for MCB’s.
Periodically, the RCD should be checked by
operating the test button marked ‘T’. The unit
should immediately switch to the OFF
position. If the unit does not switch off then a
qualified electrician should be consulted. If
the unit does switch off, the test is complete
and the switch can be re-set restoring the
supply back to normal.
MAXIMUM BULB RATINGS FOR

Please note: Simultaneous operation of all
of the 230V mains electrical equipment may
not be possible. A typical UK site mains hookup point provides a maximum output of 16
amps and on some continental sites the
available output may be as low as 5 amps. If
your loading exceeds the site supply it may
trip the site circuit breaker. Please check the
available mains output with your site
operator. The following items need to be
added together if used simultaneously.
Under locker strip lights 300mm .... 1.2 watts
Under locker strip lights 600mm .... 2.2 watts
Awning lights ................................... 10 watts
Please note: Ensure that you only replace a
blown bulb with one of the same rating.
Never replace a bulb with one with a higher

reduced. The following are the maximum pan
sizes that we recommend:
Butane - Normally on initial lighting, a small
amount of yellow tipping will occur. This then
increases slightly as the burner heats up.
Electric Hotplate: Ø180mm
Auxiliary Burner: Ø200mm
Semi-Rapid
2 x Ø200mm or 1 x
Burners:
Ø220mm with 1 x Ø180mm.
When using small pans, the flames should not
spread beyond the base of the pan as this will
reduce the efficiency of the burner. Avoid
using old or misshapen pans as these may be
unstable and may also affect efficiency.
LPG is a mixture of Propane and Butane,
therefore the exact flame appearance
depends upon the proportions of Propane and
Butane in the gas being used. Correct burner
operation can only be determined by the use
of a calibrated combustion gas analyser by a
competent operative, in accordance with
relevant European and National Standards.
The glass lid must be fully opened before
using the hotplate burners.

HOW TO USE YOUR MOTORHOME’S EQUIPMENT
Using the Electric Hotplate
Using the Grill
1. Ensure the electricity is switched on.
1. Ensure the gas cylinder is connected and
turned on.
2. The hotplate control is numbered from 1
(Low) to 6 (High). To turn on, rotate the
knob either clockwise or anti-clockwise to
the required position.
2. Open door, push in the control knob and
turn anti-clockwise to large flame symbol.
3. Continue depressing the knob whilst
holding a lighted match to the burner.
For models fitted with spark ignition the
procedure is similar except that burner is
ignited by depressing the ignition button
located on the fascia.
3. To turn off, rotate the knob until the line
or pointer on the knob lines up with the
zero on the control panel.
The hotplate is a sealed construction and
transfers heat through conduction. For
maximum efficiency a correctly sized pan
with a flat heavy gauge base should be used.
Pan size should be the same or slightly larger
(up to 1”/2.5cm oversize).
4. After the burner is lit continue depressing
the knob for approximately 10-15
seconds before releasing the knob.
5. If burner has not lit within 15 seconds,
release knob and wait at least 1 minute
before repeating operations (2) to (4).
Before using your hotplate for the first time,
we recommend that you prime and season it.
To prime the hotplate, switch on the hotplate
for a short period, without a pan, to harden
and burn off the coating. Use a medium to
high setting for 3 - 5 minutes. A non toxic
smoke may occur during this process. Allow it
to cool, then season.
6. To turn off, rotate the control knob until
the line on the knob is aligned with dot on
the control panel.
To season the hotplate, first heat the hotplate
for 30 seconds on a medium setting, then
switch off. Pour a minimal amount of unsalted
vegetable oil onto a clean dry cloth or paper
towel and apply a thin coat of oil to the
hotplate surface. Wipe off any excess oil,
then heat the hotplate on a medium setting
for 1 minute. Occasional seasoning will help
to maintain the hotplate’s appearance.
8. Ignition must always be carried out with
the grill door open.
7. Always make sure the control knob is in
the off position when you have finished
grilling.
9. Accessible parts may be hot when the
grill is in use. Young children should be
kept away.
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, open any windows and turn on
mechanical ventilators to help remove the
smoke.
Operation
Depending on specification, your appliance
may be fitted with a glass lid shut-off system,
which cuts off the power to all hotplate
burners (gas and electric) if the lid is closed.
Ensure the glass lid is open before turning on
the hotplate burners.
Although the grill heats up quickly, it is
recommended that a few minutes preheat be
allowed. It is normal for the flames on this
burner to develop yellow tips as the grill
heats up.
Remove all spillage from the surface of the
glass lid before opening.
The glass lid has the tendency to snap shut
towards the end of lowering. This is caused
by the travel lock action of the hinges as it is
activated. Make sure all fingers are clear of
the appliance when closing the lid.
Depending on the food to be cooked the
correct grilling height can be achieved by
inverting the pan trivet into either the high or
low position.
The grill area can get hot when the oven is in
use, even if the grill is switched off.

HOW TO USE YOUR MOTORHOME’S EQUIPMENT
Care should be taken when removing pans
from the grill, i.e. use of oven gloves and by
making use of the removal grill pan handle.
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.
Installation of a shelf is the reverse of this
procedure.
The grill pan supplied is multi-functional, for
use in grill 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.
Operation
Before first use we recommend heating the
oven for about 30 minutes at 200°C, to
eliminate any residual factory lubricants that
might impart unpleasant smells to the meals
being cooked. A non-toxic smoke may occur
when using for the first time so open any
windows and turn on mechanical ventilators
to help remove the smoke.
Operation
Using the Oven
1. Ensure gas cylinder/supply is connected
and turned on.
2. Open door, push in the control knob and
turn to full rate (Gas Mark 9, 240°C).
WARNING: The pans and trays supplied
with this appliance are the maximum sizes
recommended for use. Larger pans and
trays may restrict good circulation of
heat, increasing cooking times.
3. Continue depressing the knob whilst
holding a lighted match or taper to the
burner.
4. After the burner is lit continue depressing
the knob for approximately 10-15
seconds.
Always ensure food is properly cooked
prior to serving.
5. Release the knob and turn to required
heat setting.
The temperature in the oven is controlled by
a thermostatic gas tap and is variable over
the range of 130°C to 240°C. The table on
next page giving a guide to the approximate
temperatures at each of the shelf positions
with respect to the gas mark setting.
Oven Temperature Control
6. If the burner has not lit within 15
seconds, release knob and wait at least 1
minute before repeating operations (2) to
(5).
7. Place the oven shelf in the required
position and close the door.
Good use can be made of the temperature
variation between the shelf positions 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.
8. Although the oven heats up quickly a 10
minute preheat is recommended. The
oven should reach full temperature in
about 15-20 mins.
Care should be taken not to overload the
oven, allow adequate spacing to ensure free
circulation of heat. When roasting with
aluminium foil ensure the foil does not impair
circulation of heat or block any oven flue
outlet.
9. To turn off, rotate the control knob until
the line on the knob is aligned with dot on
the control panel.
10. Always make sure the control knob is in
the off position when you have finished.
For models fitted with spark ignition the
procedure is similar except that the burner
can be ignited by depressing the ignition
button located on the fascia. Ignition must be
carried out with the door open.
The oven shelf has been designed to allow
good circulation at the rear of the oven. A
raised bar at the rear of the shelf prevents

Smoke Alarm
Operation
The smoke alarm is operating once a fresh
battery is installed and testing is complete.
When products of combustion are sensed,
the unit sounds a loud 85db pulsating alarm
until the air is cleared.
Hush Control - The “HUSH” feature has the
capability of temporarily desensitising the
alarm circuit for approximately 8 minutes.
This feature is to be used only when a known
alarm condition, such as smoke from cooking
activates the alarm. If the smoke is not too
dense, the alarm will silence immediately and
the Red LED will flash once every 10
seconds for approximately 8 minutes. This
indicates that the alarm is in a temporarily
desensitised condition. The smoke alarm will
automatically reset after approximately 8
minutes and sound the alarm if particles of
combustion are still present. The “HUSH”
feature can be used repeatedly until the air
has been cleared of the condition causing the
alarm.
Controls:
1. Display - Cooking time, power level,
indicators and the current time are
displayed
2. Auto Cook - Used to cook or reheat many
of your favourite foods.
3. Defrost - Used to defrost foods for time

5. Clock - Used to set clock
6. One Touch Cook - Used to cook or
reheat specific quantities of food.
7. Time Set Pad - Used to set the cooking
time and the current time.
8. Stop/Clear - Used to stop the oven
operation or to delete the cooking data.
9. Start/+30 Sec - Used to start the oven
and also used to set a reheat time.
Note: Dense smoke will override the hush
control feature and sound a continuous
alarm.
CAUTION: Before using the alarm hush
feature, identify the source of the smoke and
be certain a safe condition exists.
Flashing LED Light - This smoke alarm is
equipped with a flashing red indicator light.
The light is located under the test button and
will flash every 40 seconds to indicate that
the smoke alarm is receiving power.
Testing - Test by pushing the test button on
the cover and holding it down for a minimum

WARNING: Use only the batteries
specified. Use of different batteries may
have a detrimental effect on the smoke
alarm.
TEST THE ALARM WEEKLY TO
ENSURE PROPER OPERATION.
Your alarm should be cleaned at least once a
year.
Erratic or low sound coming from your alarm
may indicate a defective alarm and it should
be returned for service.
To clean your alarm, remove it from the
mounting bracket. You can clean the interior
of your alarm (sensing chamber) by using
compressed air or a vacuum cleaner hose
and blowing or vacuuming through the
openings around the perimeter of the alarm.
The outside of the alarm can be wiped with a
damp cloth.
Cleaning your alarm
Note: Weekly testing is required.
Nuisance Alarms
Smoke alarms are designed to minimise
nuisance alarms. Cigarette smoke will not
normally set off the alarm, unless the smoke
is blown directly into the alarm. Combustion
particles from cooking may set off the alarm if
the alarm is located close to the cooking
area. Large quantities of combustible
particles are generated from spills or when
boiling. Using the fan on a range hood which
vents to the outside (non-recirculating type)
will also help remove these combustible
products from the kitchen. If the alarm does
sound, check for fires first. If a fire is
discovered, get out and call the fire
department.
After cleaning, reinstall your alarm and test it
by using the test button. If cleaning does not
restore the alarm to normal operation the
alarm should be replaced.
Maintenance
Battery Replacement
Note: Replacement batteries are available
where you purchased your alarm.
The smoke alarm is powered by a 9V battery.
A fresh battery should last for one year under
normal operating conditions. This alarm has
a low battery monitor circuit which will cause
the alarm to “chirp” approximately every 3040 seconds for a minimum of seven days
when the battery gets low. Replace the
battery when this condition occurs.
Note: Use only the following 9 volt batteries
for smoke alarm battery replacement:
Alkaline Type: Energizer 522; Duracell
MN1604, MX 1604; Gold Peak 1604A.
Note: Weekly testing is required.

near the alarm
•
Do not paint the alarm. If decorating or
using adhesives close to the alarm,
remove it temporarily.
•
•
Immediately move to fresh air - outdoors
or by an open door/window. Do a head
count to check that all persons are
accounted for. Do not re-enter the
motorhome nor move away from the
open door/window until the emergency
services responders have arrived, the
motorhome has been aired out and your
alarm remains in its normal condition.
The following substances can affect the

HOW TO USE YOUR MOTORHOME’S EQUIPMENT
Waste Holding Tank
Cleaning and Maintenance for
Optional Features
To keep your Waste Holding Tank fresh and
clean, Thetford has developed a number of
different toilet fluids. Thetford toilet fluids
suppress smells, reduce formation of gas,
promote breakdown of toilet waste and
increase the life span of a mobile toilet. We
advise a thorough cleaning of the Waste
Holding Tank once each season. Next to
using Thetford’s Cassette Tank Cleaner, the
powerful cleaning agent for the periodical
cleaning of the Waste Holding Tank of your
toilet, we suggest the following:-
Remove the removable mechanism from
the Waste Holding Tank by turning it
anti-clockwise and rinse it under a tap.
-
Remove the cover plate from the
Automatic Pressure Release Vent by
prising it up using a small screwdriver.
Use one hand to push the Automatic
Pressure Release Vent open while
holding the float of the Automatic
Pressure Release Vent on the inside of
the tank with the other hand. Push the
float upwards, turn it 180 degrees and
remove it from below. Remove the rubber
seal underneath the float. Rinse the float
and rubber seal under a tap. Replace the
rubber seal and float for the Automatic
Pressure Release Vent using the same
method in reverse.
-
Automatic Ventilation: The filter of the
Automatic Ventilation needs to be
renewed periodically. After approximately
4 full weeks of use, the filter loses its
absorption power.
-
Pump-Out Waste System: To ensure
optimal functionality of the Pump-Out
Waste System, periodical maintenance of
the tube and pump is recommended.
After emptying the Waste Holding Tank
completely, fill it with clean water and
empty it again. This will clean the pump
and the hose. Do this once every 3
weeks when on holiday. This should
ensure proper operation of the system.
Winter operation
You can use your Thetford Cassette Toilet as
normal in cold weather as long as the toilet is
situated in a heated location. If there is a risk
of freezing we advise that the toilet is drained
by following the instructions under ‘Storage’.
For environmental reasons the use of
antifreeze, such as that used in car radiators,
is not recommended.
The rubber seals in the toilet (the lip seal, the
mechanism seal, the automatic pressure
release vent seal and the cap seal) should be
regularly cleaned with water and treated with
Thetford High Grade Seal Lubricant. This will
ensure that the seals remain flexible and in
good condition. If the toilet is not to be used
for any length of time, it is important to treat
the seals with Thetford High Grade Seal
Lubricant after cleaning.
CAUTION: Never use Vaseline or any
vegetable oil except olive oil. These may
cause leakage or malfunction. The lip seal is
a part of the toilet that is subject to wear.
Depending upon the extent and manner of
use, the seals will become less effective and
will need replacing periodically.

21. If the toilet has its own flush-water tank,
place a sufficiently large bowl under the
drain tube to catch the remaining water
from the flush-water tank and remove the
drain plug. When no more water exits,
put the drain plug on the drain tube, put it
back in its original position and close the
access door. If the toilet is connected to
the vehicle’s water tank, please follow
your vehicle’s instructions for draining the
central water system. If your toilet is
optionally featured with a Waste
Pump-Out System, take out the Waste
Holding Tank and completely clean it
(see Cleaning and Maintenance). After
cleaning, fill it with water, put it back and
empty it via the waste pump-out system.
Repeat this twice.

TELECO TV AERIAL
Connection to the Amplifier
Connect the lead exiting from the pole to the
ANT input of the amplifier. Connect with the
relevant lead, the TV connector of the
amplifier with the television. Connect the
amplifier to a 220V power socket or a battery,
making sure you do not invert the + and terminals (Fig 1).
Operating Instructions
1) Rotate the dB dial of the amplifier
clockwise.
2) Tune the television to a channel available
in the area where you are located.
3) Rotate and lift the antenna via the
suitable pole until you get the best image
on the TV.
Useful Tips
Not all the television signals you can receive
in the zone where you are located will
necessarily originate from the same direction.
So if the quality of a programme image is
poor, try rotating the antenna as the signal
may be coming from a direction different from
the others.

Gain Adjustement
With the dB dial turned all the way clockwise,
amplifier sensitivity will be at maximum and it
is therefore able to receive the weakest
signals. If, instead, the signals are very
strong, there may be image overlap on the
TV screen. In this case rotate the dB dial
anticlockwise slowly until the image is
perfect.
With battery power supply this switch (Fig
2) allows to switch off the AT42.
If the amplifier is connected to the 230V the
switch is not active.

your motorhome is taken very seriously at
Elddis. That is why we have provided a
combination of standard features and
optional extras designed to deter and prevent
thieves from stealing your property. And in

CARE OF YOUR MOTORHOME
CARE OF YOUR MOTORHOME
dust, sand, flies, lime tree secretions, bird
droppings etc., should be washed off using
plenty of cold water do not use a sponge to
clean off heavy dirt deposits. Any remaining
dirt should be washed off using a soft cloth
and warm water. Under NO circumstances
should any abrasive cleaning agents,
household detergents or proprietary cleaning
fluids be used. Wash the window again using
only cold water and dry off with chamois
leather.
This section of the guide is devoted to the
care, cleaning and general preservation of
your motorhome in order to retain its
showroom condition.
Exterior Body Shell
Elddis Motorhome Bodies are constructed
from the highest quality materials. The fully
insulated floor is a constructed timber frame
with plywood internal floor and a GRP
underskin for added water resistance and
insulation laminated together for strength.
The walls comprise an insulated foam
sandwich having one piece GRP sides for
ultimate resistance to minor damage and
vinyl coated plywood internal finish. Wooded
framing is positioned within the sandwich to
add strength. The latest technology is used to
produce the extremely well insulated and
robust, yet lightweight sections.
Please note: Should scratches appear on
the acrylic windows these can often be
removed with an acrylic polish. E.g. ICI
Perspex polish. Gentle polishing with a liquid
metal polish, i.e. Brasso may also have the
desired effect - consult your retailer BEFORE
attempting to remove any but the slightest
scratch.
Window Blinds & Flyscreens
To clean the blinds and flyscreens, moisten a
soft cloth or sponge with a small amount of
water and mild soap suds and gently wipe
dirt off. Allow to dry before retracting, failure
to due this could result in mildew forming.
CAUTION: Under no circumstances should
an abrasive or harsh cleaner be used. Do not
use a pressure washer as this can disturb
mastic seals.
Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastic (GRP)
ABS - Wheel Spats & Panels
GRP components need to be washed,
waxed and taken care of like a car.
Chemicals and dirt can collect during
storage, and the gel coat can be stained or
marked when chemicals combine with rain or
dew. Most stains or marks can be removed
with mild dishwashing detergent, but more
stubborn marks may require a (fine grit)
rubbing compound such as T-cut. To help
keep your GRP components looking almost
like new, it is wise to wash the parts monthly
(or more frequently) using mild dishwashing
detergent, but avoid using strong alkaline
(e.g. trisodium phosphate) or acidic cleaners
or abrasives. Waxing the components once
or twice a year with a good grade paste wax
will help to maintain the colour and finish.
To preserve the appearance of all ABS
panels and fittings road grit, dust, sand, flies,
lime tree secretions, bird droppings etc.,
should be washed off using plenty of cold
water. Any remaining dirt should be washed
off using a soft cloth and warm water. Under
NO circumstances should any abrasive
cleaning agents, household detergents or
proprietary cleaning fluids be used. Wash the
ABS material again using only cold water and
dry off.
Interior Walls
Your motorhome interior walls will only
require a wipe over with a damp cloth, using
a mild detergent, to keep them in a
‘showroom’ condition.
Acrylic Windows
Furniture
Your motorhome is fitted with shatter
resistant acrylic windows. To preserve their
clarity and unblemished transparency it is
essential that the following cleaning
instructions are strictly adhered to: Road grit,
Treat your motorhome furniture as you would
the furniture in your home. Polish wood
surfaces sparingly with a good quality wax or
spray polish. Use a damp cloth to clean
Melanate laminated surfaces.

CARE OF YOUR MOTORHOME
Carpets, Upholstery And Curtains
any dirt, dust or other contaminant.
Water at a suitably hot temperature
containing an appropriate detergent is
recommended for this purpose. Water
should then be put into the container,
swirled round, and then emptied out.
Vacuum clean carpets and upholstery to
ensure a long life, marks on cushions can be
removed using a mild upholstery shampoo
with the minimum of water. Curtains should
be dry cleaned only.
Washroom And Handbasin Fittings
These should be cleaned using a non
abrasive household cleaner. Always put the
cold water into the hand basin before adding
the hot in order to preserve the finish of the
thermoplastic formed basin.
Please Note: Under no circumstances
should alcohol, spirit or solvent-based liquids
be used on GRP or ABS plastic panels as
these substances may react with the material
and cause visible damage.
(iii)
All containers should then be totally
filled with water containing an
appropriate disinfectant / sterilising
solution and allowed to stand for the
recommended contact time (e.g. Milton
for 15 minutes).

the container.
(v)
The opening of the any container
should be cleaned thoroughly with an
appropriate pre-prepared wipe

be used to fill water tanks.
Shower Trays
Only clean your shower tray using soap and
water. Do not use chemical based cleaning
agents as this may attack the material of the
tray.
Water Systems
The water systems, and in particular storage
tanks, in motorhomes are susceptible to
contamination by bacteria if care is not taken
with their use and cleaning. The symptoms
caused by bacterial contamination are not
purely limited to gastro-intestinal diseases,
but may also manifest themselves as ear,
nose, throat, and eye or skin infections. It is
therefore important that you carry out the
following procedure prior to using the
motorhome each time, even if you boil or
filter all water you use for drinking.
Internal Water Systems
Please note: If your motorhome is not going
to be used for an extended period of time it is
recommend that you disconnect the vehicle
battery to prevent the battery from
discharging.
(i)
Drain down the system. (Open all taps
to allow air in, enabling the system to
drain quickly.) See Index - Draining
Down The Water System.
(ii)
Remove any water filters fitted, and
replace with a short length of hose or
empty filter cartridge (this will ensure
the filter is not affected by the
disinfectant / sterilising solution).
(iii)
Fill the system by using the pump with
a disinfectant / sterilising solution.
(Check that the solution at full strength
appears at all taps/showers). Allow to
stand for the recommended period of
time.
Water Containers

Ensure handbrake is applied and
chock the wheel diagonally opposite
the wheel to be removed.
Replace the filter. Suitable sterilising
chemicals are available from your
Elddis Retailer, accessory shop,
chemists, or homebrew shops. It is not,
however, recommended to use bleach
or sodium metabisulphide.
(ii)
Remove the hub cap. (If applicable)
(iii)
Use wheel brace to slacken off wheel
nuts on the wheel to be changed.
(iv)
Position jack at the appropriate jacking
point (see Peugeot vehicle handbook).

construction and size as the one that has
been removed.
CAUTIONS
•
Never add toilet fluid directly into toilet
bowl.
•
Do not use strong household detergents
or cleaners that contain chlorine, solvents
or acid contents.
•
High Altitude and Hot Weather Use - with
large temperature differences and
changing heights during driving, pressure
can start to build up in the waste holding

STORAGE
Power Drain
STORAGE
In order to reduce any drain on your Leisure
Battery while your motorhome is being stored
you should ensure that the main control
switch on the refrigerator is set to the 0
position
LONG TERM & WINTER STORAGE
If your motorhome is to be stored for any
length of time, especially over the winter
period, the following operations are
recommended:
(i)
Remove all linens, blankets, cushions,
clothes, mattresses, etc. that could be
affected by damp conditions
(ii)
Clean the motorhome inside and out as
detailed in the previous section.
Please note: If you have the Elddis Protect
alarm fitted and you disconnect the leisure
battery the alarm will run off the back-up
battery for approximately 2 weeks.
Should the motorhome be stored for a
prolonged period of time it is strongly
recommended that the motorhome is fully
serviced before the commencement of use.
Your retailer will ensure that your motorhome
is safe, secure and ready for your enjoyment.
(iii) Drain the water system (see index).
(iv) Ensure all windows, roof lights and
doors are correctly fastened. Check
fixed ventilation apertures are not

store the motorhome is open, fairly high
and dry and if possible not exposed to
gales etc. If this proves impossible it is
recommended that the motorhome
chassis is anchored to the ground.
(vi) Jack up the motorhome (use bottle or
screw jack), so that the wheels are clear
of the ground. Support the motorhome
axle with wooden blocks, axle stands or
similar so that when the jacks are
removed the wheels remain clear of the
ground. Cover the tyres to prevent
deterioration.
(vii) Release the handbrake.
(viii) Removing the wheels reduces the risk of
motorhome theft.
Motorhome Covers
Covers may be used to protect your new
Elddis motorhome provided that the cover
used is of a breathable type. Ensure that any
sharp objects are removed e.g. the point of a
status omni-directional aerial, and that the
