    Wiring to a microswitch tap

    Hi, sorry if I caused any confusion, but it is two wires each. The tap has one red and one black wire, the Van has one purple/yellow and one purple/black wire. Cheers

    Wiring to a microswitch tap

    Wow. .. now that is great service. .. Thanks Stevan, this forum is awesome!
  3. Hi, me again! I am working on my 1996 Swift Challenger (again), and I am replacing the tap in the bathroom. The wires on the new tap are brown and red (as they should be), but needless to say the Van wiring is a number of pretty colours. .. god forbid that they would follow any electrical standards! Anyway, the connections in the bathroom for the old microswitch tap are yellow & purple, and black & purple. Could anyone tell me which is which, or does it matter? Thanks in advance for any help. ..

    Funny Screw Heads...

    Hi all, Thanks for all of your help and advice. .. they were pop rivets in the end. I drilled off the tops, and they popped off dead easy. The left over bits I just pushed into the wall and filled in. Thanks again. ..

    Are they difficult to get out? Or should I just leave them and fill the holes?

    Funny Screw Heads...

    thanks for these responses. .. Seems like overkill to me to not just use a normal screw to fit a shower holder to a caravan. .. They always have to make things difficult for us!

  11. Hi all, I am referbing the bathroom in our 1996 swift, and encountered these. .. can someone tell me if they are screws or rivets please? If they are rivets, how do I get them off without damaging the wall. Thanks
  12. Hi all, My old challenger 1996, has developed an electrical problem. When I connected it up on site this summer, one of the breakers tripped and tripped part of the sites electrics as well. I hadn't turned anything on, besides a new 12v LED light. The circuit also controls the water heater. it is labelled as a 6amp C6. Can anyone advise what I have broken please, and how to correct it. Thanks J

    Exterior trim on old Challenger 500SE

    Hi Chris, thanks for this. .. i had in fact left the awning inserts dangling. I was going to pin them up after I had completed the renovations, but having read your post I will just leave a couple of inches at the end and cut them off there.
