Hey guys,
We are new owners of a Avan Aspire 555 2018 model,
I love the caravan but not the flimsy roll out fly wire door..... I would much prefer the security door like the older caravans. Has anyone on here actually had their doors changed over to the security type doors in their Avan?
Thank you

The solar charging on our new 2021 560 Frances van seems slow to recover when not connected to grid mains power. THEN when connected to grid power I expected the battery charge rate to be high considering the project 335 controller is rated to charge to 30amps however have only seen the maximum charge rate to be 9.6 amps have I got a bad battery or incorrect controller set-up maybe for another type of battery would appreciate some advice or am I not patient enough is the 120 watt panel to small? thanks Anthony

hi we have a swift hot water system in my avan france that runs on electronic and gas but the gas is not working you can her a spark but it does not light have replaced shut off valves but still not working can some one tell me what is wrong please

Paul · Hardtop 609 Owen

as you go inside van, on the left are 3 switches, what are they for?

Paul G


If it is the same as a HT560 Francis
The left hand on ( as you face the panel) is the master switch to turn on the 12v system in the van. When on it should show a green light.
The centre switch shows the battery charge level by way of a series of coloured lights. Green fully charged, yellow semi discharged,red meaning battery is below about 11.5vs
The third switch ( RH) shows water tank levels by way of a series of lights Ful , 3/4 , 1/2, 1/4 and Empty.
It’s about 90% accurate.
Does this help?


on our owen that is positioned to right of stove.
the ones i mean are like light switches are on left wall as you come in
