  1. Folks my apologies if this has been asked before but the search never came up with the answer. Can I buy any Carbon Monoxide detector or does it need to be specifically for caravans? Also, where is the best place to mount one? Cheers benn.
  2. I am making / installing an automatic on-board water tank filling system to my 2009 Bailey Senator Arizona. I made one of these for my Lunar Delta about 20 years ago. Now I have another Caravan with an onboard tank I find it annoying how complicated Bailey have made it to fill the on-board tank. I have to remove the cushions from the rear locker, lift the rack, "set" two change-over valves, (correct combination, depending if I am using external, internal or filling internal from external). Then switch the electric pump to "fill", wait until it's filled, and then switch the valves as required for "operation". I looked on the market – there is NOTHING, nothing on Ebay, Nothing on “The Web”, nothing on YouTube, nothing in the Forums on how to do this… No gadgets, no advice, no discussion – maybe I’m the only one that wants this ???? I have added an Carver / Truma Crystal filter inlet into the side of the caravan directly next to the on-board tank. I will use my old Truma external pump to fit this fitting. This will fill the tank directly. I am fitting a relay (in a small plastic box to be neat) along with an "audible" alarm to warn me the external pump is operating. As my tank already has a "low level" sensor and a "high level sensor" (to stop the on-board [in fill mode] pump when full) it will be an easy job to do. I am fitting 2 switches - 1) Off/Fill to High Level 2) Fill to low level only (reserve level). If anyone is interested, I am going to document this fully with Photos on my Blog as it will be too detailed (and the photos) for here: https://tony-sparks.co.uk/blog/2019/09/13/automatic-on-board-water-tank-fill-system-tracker/ You will need to cut a hole in the side of your van to fit a Truma (or pump interface of your choice). You will need to be "capable" with 12v Electrics, and able to wire a 12v relay and a couple of switches. I *may* consider making the "control" boxes when I have finished mine - if there is any demand- but I may not! BTW: While you are about it (Bailey Senator Only) - I will tell you how to change the "ancient" battery on your (Secret Location) Tracker / Alarm system (mine was 10 years old and bulging - and was down to 2.2v!). Replacement battery - £14.50 delivered from Ebay! Any Comments ?
  3. Last night, at 23:00 & 03:05 the alarm on our caravan went off! Amazing considering I never activate it when it's on our drive. ...and we're home? So, having woken all the neighbours, twice, I disconnected the leisure battery, hoping that would stop a third activation. It did. Here's why; The backup battery, an Ultracell sealed lead acid battery had swollen and the live terminal had detached due to corrosion! Okay the van is 8 years old, so the fault with the alarm may well be considered inevitable, especially when Nordelettronica Alarms have a reputation for failure, but; It was when removing the alarm box from the floor under the seating I found that the box had been firmly screwed directly to the floor. ... OVER a VENT!! The image clearly shows the inevitable mould growth on the vinyl flooring. Why do this? Its basic stuff. Don't block vents!! If you HAVE to locate the box there, bolt it to blocks raising the box, say, 12mm off the floor? This would allow for air flow which the vent is there for! I'm posting this so that other Sterling Excel owners, and maybe ALL Swift Group caravan owners can check their situation vis-a-vis alarm box locations. I wonder what the Coroner would make of it if the, God forbid, worst happened & someone/some family died of CO2 poisoning because of the blocked vent?
  4. Hi for those of you out there that are having phantom tracker ringing you saying your alarm has been activated. .. I have a Lunar Clubman 2017 model. Every time I come back from a trip I started getting calls from phantom. The caravan was on my drive and no alarm was heard, even at 1am. After trying a few settings it was still the same and ended up telling phantom not to call unless is was moving! This got worse and went off 9 times in week from my last trip. On speaking to phantom they confirmed it was a PIR activation, even though I had covered it up as a part of my own checks. The siren was also quiet which I only heard once Apparently Phantom say there are faulty PIRs from Sergeant on 2017 and 2018 Lunars and Swifts. They said to contact Sergeant who will replace it. They say the fault is with the PIR, I noted it does not activate the alarm anyway and the siren is almost non existent. On speaking to Sergeant they say the extra power for the tracker interferes with the PIR, anyway they are sending a replacement. Hope this may help someone else, cheers 😉
  5. The new Unicorn 3 (2015) does not come with an alarm. It has a tracker fitted so that when you notice the caravan is missing from the site, home or storage ( could be weeks ) you start to get it tracked, hopefully before it leaves the country or the tracker is removed. Then you may get it back, if you want it back. Spend over 20k and no alarm sounds daft to me, you can say goodbye to your TV, laptop, iPad, mobile phone, camera and any other belongings that could be sold at a car boot. ..
  6. Hi. Does anyone by any chance have a circuit diagram for a 2003 SAS200 alarm box and PIR sensor? The tilt sensor has stopped working. Thanks
  7. Hi Apologies if this is posted in wrong place, I'm just clueless about forum protocols. I have a Bailey Indiana 2006 and a couple of seasons ago, decided to try replacing the 12v 1. 2 ah intruder alarm battery. ​Unfortunately, I probably unplugged more than I needed to and also didn't complete the job at the time. I'm attempting to do that now, but am unsure about the wiring coming from the battery housing and the other end of the multiplug which is plugged into the keypad. I'd really appreciate anyone's help with this, especially an illustration or photo of the alarm installation. I believe this is an IDM4 system.
  8. Hi All. Hoping for some help with wiring etc on the van. Its a series 1 unicorn valencia. I have issues with the leisure battery going flat. I have found the tracker and its 2 batteries. The lithium battery is at 6VDC so had it, the dry cell alarm battery is at 10VDC so not good and is dragging the leisure down i suspect. I would like to remove the tracker and its batteries, I have got a TK104 to install and would like to instal this along with the alarm and I am going t use it to remote start the alde heating. However on unplugging te tracker, I find the alarm doesnt work, the unit which is labelled caravan tracker unit, has a small relay in and appears to operate when plugged in, during arming and disarming to chirup the sounder. So, it appears the tracker 'unit' which is made up of 2 circuit boards in 2 separate housing is, the alarm unit complete. I could remove the tracker batteries and use it as it is and it would be fine, I intend to instal the tk104 and maybe use a trigger from the alarm to trigger the tk104 as it has door open inputs etc, to then text me, if the alarm triggers. Is there a wiring diagram on the web for the van? Or, could i get one from bailey? I did a quick bit of investigation this afternoon before it got dark, but I did think that the master switch turns off power to the tracker, thereby forcing it to run on its own battery, but I could be wrong on this one.
  9. This is an issue that has been annoying me for years, now finally this is my cry for help. Often, but not always, when I stop for lunch or something while car and caravan are connected, I have no pump, lights etc in the caravan. So I have to disconnect the 13-pin plug and make sure I remember to reconnect it before resuming my journey. While disconnected everything works fine. It affects the alarm too - sometimes, but not always, when I activate the alarm when leaving the rig, it immediately sounds the alrm and so I have to turn off the alarm, disconnect and re-engage the alarm. Recently it seems to be that almost always this is the case, whereas previously it was about 50/50 whether it would be ok or not. I'd be very grateful for any ideas. My knowledge is limited, but would it be something to do with the habitation relay? Ed
  10. In Febuary I'm going away to the Middle East with work for 6 months and I'm putting my van in secure storage for the duration. The issue I've got is that as part of my insurance t&c's ive got to have my alarm and tracker active at all times. I'm pretty sure that the 110amp battery will run out of juice within a couple of months without being charged, so I'm thinking about getting a solar panel to keep the battery on trickle charge. My question is what wattage solar panel would I need to keep the alarm and tracker charged. Went to have a look at some the other day and was advised that I'd need a high wattage solar panel which cost nearly £300! Would I not be able to manage with a lot lower wattage and cheaper option? Any advice will be appreciated 😊😊
  11. Hi folks, Just had a great Easter weekend giving the caravan a spring clean. We're away in a couple of weeks for our first outing this year. I noticed though that there was something beeping, probably every 30-60 minutes. Just a single beep each time. It definitely wasn't the smoke alarm nor the carbon monoxide alarm. I assumed it was the alarm back up battery which I know can & does lose its charge over the winter. Leaving it plugged in to the mains tends to resolve it, but it was still going after about 24 hours plugged in - so slightly worrying. I recall it doing this when we first got the caravan and people saying that it can take a week of charging, however when we were first away in it, it didn't beep whilst it was charging. This time it is. Also it never seemed to sound like it was coming from the direction of the alarm. So whilst I will check out the alarm as the primary suspect, my question is - any other ideas as to what it could be? Any other Coachie's had similar or any ideas? Thanks for any help.

  15. Hi I bought my Lunar Delta TI last March since then I have had problems with the battery (taking it down as low as 3 volts). On each occasion the battery was new, fully charged and everything was switched off but was it? I understand that there are some possible reasons: The Alarm is a Keen alarm, according to their website the alarm draws . 025 amps, given that I have a 100amp/hour battery I calculate that I should get 160+ days before it flattens the battery The Awning Light glows in the dark - appaently Lunar know that there is a fault and are sending a new wiring loom to my dealer The dealer told me that there is still a feed through to the fridge when thee main power is off - why? What can it be for? Phantom - does this take any power? Why did Phantom not get a report when the battery voltage went below the specified level, I have spoken to Phantom and all they could say is that when the battery comes back up they can check to see what is going on. It should be that Phantom call me and tell me there is a problem Keens website recommends charging your battery every 6 weeks or so. Why is this necessary with such a low drain on the battery from the alarm that they supply. I have had alarms on caravans for 20 + years and never had a problem - there are some threads running on this but not looking at all of the points raised above. This is my first post and I am hoping that someone has the answers. If not I will be stuck with installing a solar panel.
  16. Hello all I have just got a fantastic condition Conqueror 610 Lux with all the Millennium goodies. :DI have a problem that I know you guys will have the answer to. I do not have the code for the alarm system as fitted but am thinking that there must be a way to reset it back to the factory code. I also seem to have a little black box with a transformer plug under the right side front (offside) seat. its something to do with the alarm but the plug is not plugged in nor does it have a socket under the seat? BTW great site I spent too much time here reading stuff! Thanks in Advance and anticipation. :huh:
  17. Hi. Help. I bought my Fleetwood Heritage some 4 or so years ago from a company that no longer exists. I was not aware it had an alarm until it went of recently. After reading up it seems I should have a fob of some sort to set and reset. Any thoughts on what I can do as the alarm keeps going off. Graham
  18. Could someone please tell me where I can pick up a constant 12volt fused supply to power an alarm on an Elddis Riveria 505. Would appreciate any help. Thanks.
  19. All set to get ready for the new season and my main caravan key ring has somehow disappeared. Not only my caravan key but the remote alarm thingy as well. No doubt they will turn up just as soon as I get replacements but, in the meantime, how do I get replacements? Fortunately I have a spare set, so I assume a new key can be cut by my local key cutting chappie. However the remote is a different kettle of fish. Presumably I have to go back to the manufacturer(?) 2011 Lunar Lexon 530 Any help will be much appreciated!
  20. Hi all, new to the site though been looking in anonymously for a while. ... My first question is, has anyone retro fitted an alarm to a Quasar, it should be plug and play as there seems to be some wiring already in, Lunar say they haven't got loom diagrams!!!! Is there a Molex plug somewhere on the van. .. Anyone? TIA. ... Dave
  21. Having seen the thread and in the knowledge my Unicorn Valencia alarm is nor triggering other alarms - i though I would check and fully expected a siren etc - NOTHING !!! so how do I check whats wrong - I can set the alarm and get the 2 beeps & 1 beep on deactivation - Battery is fully charged - The monitor has no lights on and never has - I can see access to the PIR, small screw underneath . Need to investigate problem - any ideas
