I signed up on this site caravantalk.co.uk to get help on issues with my first caravan (an Abi Award Sunstar dated  presumably in 1990s). I would be grateful if someone can help on the following:


- getting a copy of the handbook, preferably a link to an electronic copy;

- issues with 240v not working from the battery (presumably needing attention on the inverter which I am not sure where it is located)

- the toilet is not flushing (may be due to the electrics not fully working)

. ..


Somehow I am not able to start a new question on the forum (very frustrating!), hence posting this reply. Sorry if this is the wrong place. Cheers.
