  1. Have a look at this Powr Touch fault finding guide to see if it is of any help https://www.powrtouch.com/evolution-fault-finding/
  2. Body shop paint supplier is best place to get some but you will need to give them an idea of what the colour is. Best to remove a locker door and take it for matching. The colour depends a little on the year of your caravan. For the 2012 Conqueror Swift provided the following answer to the question about paint colour on Swift Talk " As it is a Metallic paint we always recommend taking off a service door and getting a local paint shop to match your caravan side. However two good starting points are Mazda 26A and Sikkens CARV9000 Regards Dave B" Hope this helps
  3. Bought my first van 45 years ago when I was 25. Decided it was cheaper to buy an old tourer instead of renting a static in Newquay Cornwall. Got a well used Sprite Musketeer hand painted it externally in white and mustard gloss paint (Woolworths best) to match our Austin Maxi !!!! Towed to Newquay with no problem and kept van for 3 years. Sold it for a profit to a man that wanted to use it as a site hut on a building site !
  4. I normally try a Magic Sponge first on most difficult stains. Worth a try.
  5. Sounds like you may need a VLM fitting. Did you fully test your road lights with your dealer prior to and on collection? If so did they work correctly? I would contact your dealer and explain the problem. You can also discuss with Sargents Technical team who are very helpful. See here for their details and VLM details https://sargentltd.co.uk/shop/product/vlm6-with-c44-fuse-board/290 Hope this helps
  6. It is very common problem. The plug pins have gone out of alignment. Get yourself an alignment tool and it will be fixed in moments. Keep it in your van in case happens again. Here is an example https://www.towsure.com/alignment-tool-suits-13-pin-plugs?gclid=Cj0KCQjw8rT8BRCbARIsALWiOvR_dSxgBC9P1EvGYyIWd5DcLGt5dI9BKUan-VTIhjoHBG86g-uzXv8aArg1EALw_wcB

  8. Just done trip from the North West to a CL at Caister on Sea. Used A47 and A1064 from Acle to Caister. The roads were fine and no problem.
  9. You say you have read the manual. This does explain the system for filling the tank and / or using the external supply on page 44 - 47. The main thing to note is that you have to manually disconnect the external tank fill pipe (upper connection) from caravan once the tank is full (page 46). Also you need to set the tank selector valve internally as described. If you are having continued difficulties you can set the system to use the external water barrel rather than the tank. Use the lower connection point only and set the internal tank selector valve to external supply. Hope this h
  10. Hope you get it sorted. One more possible error with the plate is that technically Sterling are not the manufacturer of the caravan. Sterling is one of the Swift brand names. The manufacturer is Swift Group Ltd.
  11. The incorrect plate looks like it may have been put on the van in Oz when imported as it refers to the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 which is Australian legislation. Not only is axle weight wrong the tyre sizes and pressures are also wrong. It says 82psi but the Swift plate limit is 52psi. I would not try to inflate to 82psi. Size is also wrong and I think someone has simply mis read all the info on the correct plates. You probably need to find out who put the plate on the van and why (which legislation) - probably done in Oz as it is hand written rather than factory production. Would
  12. +1 for Tayna. I have used them for many years. Also you can get 10% discount from Tayna if you are a CMC member.
  13. The main weights match Swifts however I do not understand the figure for the axle capacity. Have a look underneath and there should be a plate attached to the axle itself giving its weight limit. As suggested by Legal Eagle you may want to contact Swift
  14. If all fuses are definitely ok then the problem must be in the circuitry. You can remove the 12v socket and check for damage or cable melt etc. Similar fault reported on Swift Talk And Sargents advice was to get dealer to look at it.
  15. I have suggested looking at fuse 3 which is the only one common to the circuits which have failed which are the 12v sockets / TV amplifier / radio. It may look OK but try another fuse in any case to check. If other 12v circuits have also failed such as lights, fridge panel etc then it may be that the main battery fuse has blown which would kill all the 12v circuits.
