  1. Hi all, I've got a broken flush pump (Thetford model number 022406) and i've tried to "nudge" the impeller to free it but it's not budging so I'm going to get a new one however I've noticed that it's attached to the controller board via a connector block and the new one's don't come with this block attached so am i right in thinking these are just the plug in "probe" type connectors ? i.e are they easy enough to pull out and push back in ? Hope this makes sense. Thanks
  2. Yeah....the odd thing is also that when i picked them up the motor mover worked fine so i know there was a decent charge left in the battery but yes, it might just be the case that it just so happens it's a fuse or something just at the first time we use it without EHU
  3. She says there wasn't even any sound (as in it wasn't just empty of flush water) but I've not tried it yet as it's in storage so i'll pop up next weekend to try it but just wanted to confirm it should work on 12v. The only other thing i think it could be is the alcohol she and her friends had but let's not jump to conclusions just yet eh ? Thanks
  4. That's fine.............thought so and yes......time to get in the toilet and see what's what............so to speak
  5. Hi all, My wife took our 2005 Adria Adora 532uk away this weekend without any electric hookup and all worked well (lights, water pump etc) but she says the flush on the toilet didn't work. This works fine on hook up but not on battery ? I'm assuming this SHOULD work on battery shouldn't it ? Thanks Ian
  6. Thanks and yes it seems to do it's job but looking at some motor mover videos it looks like the rollers are just about touching the tyre but mine are on enough to give an "indent" into the tyre but as it's a manual actuator i didn't know if it was that causing it to "struggle" and turn off if it's under too much load due to the pressure of the roller on the tyre ?
  7. Hi all, I bought a used PurpleLine motor mover at the beginning of the year and fitted it myself and i put the distance between the tyre and the roller at 20mm as the guide said however i have a couple of issues/questions. 1. No matter how far i wind it onto the tyre i can't see (on either side) any kind of markings to denote if it's on the tyre enough i.e on a lot of guides and videos there's normally a red/green label. 2. The caravan starts to move and then a lot of the time stops and i have to press the button again a few times for it to start back up. The unit doesn't
  8. That's good then, at least i know it's a case of just tightening them more as they are one shot....i've not loosened them at all so i'll set the wrench slightly lower as mentioned and then work it up.
  9. I've got an extender for my breaker bar so might pop that on it and double check then, just rather be safe than sorry Thanks all
  10. I'll give it a try....i just thought initially that i wasn't putting enough force into it and simply not reaching 290Nm but although i'm only a "slight" build i did put as much force into it as i could. I've not had to tighten anything up to 290Nm with a torque wrench so i couldn't gauge approximately how much force it should need. Thanks
  11. I've put the hub nuts back on yesterday (it IS an Alko) and set the torque to 290Nm but didn't hear the wrench click ? i put the wheel bolts back on at 88Nm and it did click so i know it's working ok but i ended up putting the hub nuts on as tight as i can but didn't get the click ? as it's a max of 300Nm wrench is it just a case that it reached it's limit ? Anyone had this before ? Thanks
  12. Great, thanks....yes i've got a Torque wrench up to 300Nm so should be fine. Thanks
  13. Hi all, There seems to be a bit of variation in this so i thought i'd ask myself. I've got a 2005 Adria Adora 532UK with steel wheels. Anyone know the correct wheel nut torque setting in nM and also for the hub nut as well while we're at it ? Thanks Ian
