Hardtop 560 Frances

Trying to find out why our 2 x 95ltr. water tanks seem to run out so quickly when free camping. Last trip we allowed water to drain into 10Ltr. buckets so as to record usage. We used approx. 100 ltrs. and our LT109-4 gauge was already showing less that a 1/4 tank left.
When filling tanks I wait until water flows from breather hole. We use the water sparingly but it's as if one tank never fills properly. Has anyone else had this problem?

Similar thing happened to us. The pipe between the two tanks could be larger: when I full up and the water comes out of the spout, I wait 15 minutes and then fill up again. It will take a lot more. Usually do it 3 times until both tanks are chockers. Usually lasts us 5 or 6 days.

2013 Frances. First trip in it the water pump decided not to work. There is no 12-13 volts at the pump with 12volt switch on and tap open. Any tips on problem solving and where do I locate the components? Thanks.

Check the wires connection to the battery. If they are connected properly, maybe you batter is buggered. Use a multimeter to test battery voltage. This is not in lieu of a load test. If all else fails, take it to an auto electrician and get him to do a load test on the battery

Thanks John.V.
Battery is brand spanker 120AH and all other electrical fittings work okay, but I will try to trace the wiring again. My multimeter detects voltage elsewhere just not on the wires to the pump when the tap is open. Being at least the third owner and finding some questionable wiring solutions adds to the challenge. I was wondering if there is a sensor in the water plumbing that switches 12V to the pump on when you open a tap? Trouble is I don't know what it would be called, what it looks like and where it could be located.

Avan Aspire 555 2019. The glass section on the door is held place 4 metal clips on the flyscreen section. The top two clips have been separated and therefore not engaging to hold the glass door closed. Its a long way to the dealer so if anyone has suggestions on how to close the clips i would be appreciative.

Thanks in advance

The fridge vents on my 563 are not in the correct place. According to the fridge manufacturers handbook that you supplied. Because this does cause a problem can you cut extra vents in correct places.
The van itself is good, we were happy with your Penrith dealer
Let me know please and Id love an answer to query about cost of replacing the door with a Camec door.

Hi everyone. Just noticed blisters in the paint along the rear outside corner toilet side of our 2014 Frances. Anyone have anything similar? Will try get it to Avan for a look but can't seem to find anything online. Looks like water must be getting into back corner causing electrolysis?

Ours doesn't drain well because it seems to be in a higher spot than the shower tray. We have to use a squeegie to get the last bit of water out.
Think the pipes are ok though

Hi we had drainage problems and when we drained the sink water came up into the shower.
I made a separate drain for the shower and problem fixed.

38psi on tar, about 14psi on sand, about 28psi on corrugated roads. Note that a lot depends on quality of tyre and the construction of its sidewall
