  1. I think its the alarm i think you need to reset it info should be in your book.
  2. Birty iff with the toilet door shut and you can get some movement when you push the top of door towards the front it will be the screws not holding as to short, get someone to do it while you look at the top of the hinge it is hard to notice i had the same problem but not as bad as yours, it is a very flimsy piano hinge with no stiffness.
  3. Yes the shower door is magnetic but the magnetic fluffy bit fits around the shower door with just a friction fit therefore a block of wood and a tap with a hammer will push it back on mine was done just as jako1 said at handover, best if you get someone inside the shower to hold the door, the screws that hold the door are very short and don't hold much i changed mine for longer ones.
  4. Its the same layout as my 550 the shower door is easey to adjust the seals is a channel and fits over the shower door mine had a gap on handover just needs a block of wood and a hammer, all is needed is the bit thats touching to be tapped on further but dealer should do it if in warranty, door hitting light switch is harder it looks like door has moved over possbly because screws on hinge loose or whole door frame moved its hard to tell from picture
  5. My 2014 550 states 62 psi in documents so not much different
  6. Is there the correct fluid level in the header tank,has the pipes got air in them if so bleed them,has someone been playing with the temp off set on the controll panel what side of the van had cold pipes as the flow runs down the nearside and return to boiler down the offside. Flynn
  7. Sending it back to the manufacturer seems a good idea might make them up their game and do proper quality control, my dealer say's he just about breaks even on warranty work and that he has to fight for every pound he gets from the manufacturer.
  8. I often wonder if some dealers have a damp metre for selling and another for buying all to their advantage.
  9. Have a look at Elddis 550 with island bed and separate wc and shower, best layout we've ever had of all our caravans, or look at two single bed models.

    Awning rail

    Thank you thats what i thought, i was wondering if the glue they use starts to break down after 5or 6 years as i think mine was one of the early ones i wonder if there are more to come?
  12. While cleaning my sept 2013 Compas omega 550 i found the offside front awning rail has a gap where abuts the ABS went inside with damp meter and found 28%, i had this in 2016 with near side but dealer replaced and made a good job, i then thought i would check the rest of the awning rails i the found on both that the sides that the straight pieces of rail were coming away too, the rear rails were ok as the back panel has been replaced twice the last time in 2015 is this a case of the so called super bonding failing after 51/2 years as it looks like it to me, have arranged to take it in to dealer to do a survey as its a sealed seam i am confident elddis will cough up but if not as i understand it my contract is with the dealer or is that incorect.
  13. Andy Tantalise is just injected under pressure, many years ago i saw a program where the put timber in a small vacuum chamber and the put a type of liquid plastic in the chamber so it filled all the voids i wonder why that has not been persued would have been good for caravans.
  14. I assume poster is talking about whale underslung heater, i have always thought this was not a good idea thin steel in a wet road environment but thats only my opinion.
  15. Benfica i saw that done on my storage site by a guy who had lost his keys, he had a new hitch lock ready and just put a crowbar under the side edge and it snapped off the small lugs on the red hitch lock in less than 30 seconds, it opened my eyes i went and purchased a different make to replace mine, like a lot of items in caravanning i'm sure things are not tested properly.
