I need the battery access door for a 2006 altea px432 any ideas where I could obtain one
Hi guys, does anyone know where I can purchase a sliding fly screen door as shown on page 53 of my 2008 users manual. Anyone? I’ve had no luck here in Australia.
Any suggestions for an easy way to change the sheets of the front double bed which is in the corner. We’ve tried taking the mattress out but as we are in our 70s it’s a bit of a struggle, we’ve also tried pulling the mattress on the window side up and slipping the edge of the sheet over, then laying it down and then lifting up the mattress on the en-suite side and slipping the sheet over. We then drop the mattress and tuck in bits the best we can. Darn hard work, so if any one can share their secrets we would be most greatful. Regards Di and Sal
All corner double beds are a pain no matter what make. I tend to just use a fitted sheet over the mattress and then just use cotton type sleeping bags.. Easier than constantly having to change sheets. We have a 2006 Adria since new with this problem. Our next van will definitely have twin beds. Apart from this hiccup, the van is faultless!! I hope this hint helps.
Thanks Tally H, will look in to your suggestion. I don’t mind sleeping bags but my partner finds them claustrophobic. But sometimes needs must prevail.
Here is the bedding I've made for the caravan .
It consists of two doona covers and one sheet .
there is 5 cm of foam in the bottom doona cover which is also the bottom sheet and it is sewn to the top sheet leaving the openings for removal for washing .
the doona also can be attached to the bottom bedding so that nothing moves in the night.
In the morning the bedding can be rolled up and becomes cushions on the daybed ..then in the night ,when we want to go to bed ,we just roll down the bedding and hop in .
this was $800 online but $100 to make it yourself ....what do you think?
Hi guys, i just bought a 2008 432px cheap with some missing parts. Im trying to work out whats missing, please help me complete the puzzle
Hi we have purchased a 2014 Adria Altea 432px and we are gradually working things out, however can't seem to work out how to stop the water from running out the outside tap inlet. When we have the hose connected to it and running the water in all good, however when we take it off the water starts running out. The valve under the bed is horizontal like it says so water doesn't empty out, however it still runs out and when the pump is on pumps straight out there. If anybody has any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Have just purchased 2014 Adria Altea 432px, how do we get the water to run out of taps or into the Truma pump?
I have just bought an Adria Altea Tay advertised as 2014 although the VIN says its a 2013. I cannot locate the water tank?!?! Is there one?
The Tay looks similar to my 402PH Sport which does have a 140 lyric fresh water tank so I assume Tay has one also but not sure. On my van tank is located just in front of axle underneath van
I have also just added a 60 ltr Grey water tank behind the axle
Hope this helps
I have an Altea 402 and it’s under the van just behind the axel. My suggestion is joint the Facebook page called Euro Caravans in Oz. You will find out more about your van there and they are helpful.
Hi guys, I have a 2010 432PX Adria and when I turned the pump on to wash a few dishes, it suddenly stoped working and the light indicating that the pump is on, went out. This also seemed to affect the battery voltage meter located next to the pump switch which now doesn’t work. I was having a few challenges with the house battery, so I replaced it. I have checked the meter box and the pump fuse in the fuse box under the bed and they seem fine. I believe that the pump is the pressure type. Can anyone help me?
Confused and frustrated Jan
I assume water pump is same as mine in 402PH which is a submersible one located inside the water tank. It sounds like the pump has run dry and failed. Doesn’t explain why battery metre does not work though.
Both could be related to an electrical/wiring fault so would suggest taking to a good caravan repair outlet who has access to an experienced caravan electrician.
Is the switch to water pump (under bed) turned on ?
Hope this helps
Can anyone tell me i can door hinges for the toilet door the same hinge is on the pantry door as well?
how do i remove the radio from the box in a altea 432px?
You need two special extraction keys that you insert on the side to dislodge the spring clips from the radio they look like lollipop sticks but they have a small indentation to force the clips back and then you pull them out. You probably can buy some from super cheap autos
I need to know where I can buy hooks and shower curtain? Thanks The caravan is year 2008
Take an existing hook to a Spotlight or Bunnings store. If you don’t have an existing curtain ring Apollo and see if they can help or maybe I can send you a photo of mine (432PH Sport) as I assume all Adria vans are fitted with the same curtains
Been to Bunning and spotlight, no go. Tonight logged into www.caravan-parts.org and they have the hooks £ 7 a bag. I hope Spotlight have the tape to sew on a curtain otherwise I should be able to sew something to take the hooks. The hooks are no bigger than my finger nail and seem quite strong.
Thank you for your suggestion and help.
We have no power to the 12v submersible pump. Only had the van 2days (seconhand). Is there a switch somewhere that switches from mains to the on board water tank? Thanks heaps.
Hi Kerry, Congratulation the 432px is a great van I owned the 2014 model for 3 years and had a great time traveling with out any problems.
Only reason I sold is we upgraded to a larger van.
The answer to your question is yes it has a seperate switch for the pump it's should be located near the TV connection and the hot water 240/gas switch behind the centre petition bed side.If that is not the problem check your fuses located under your bed.
Hi I am having trouble converting my dinette to a spare double bed, the configuration of the cushions doesn't seem to fit evenly as one side of the seating is longer then the other side, has anyone else had this problem, there is a pull out timber support on opposite side to the long side but then the cushions don't fill the gaps ? I have a 432PX 2008 16' van
We have a different model van however our van came with an additional rectangular cushion that fits into the gap. Ours on purchase was stored in the cupboards above the fixed double bed. If your van doesn't have this perhaps adria can access one for you. Alternatively Clarke Rubber and similar stores can cut foam to fit. Hope that helps.
Hi, I had the 2014 432px and what a great van it was.
It came with an additional rectangular timber and cushion to make up the dinette double bed stored in the wardrobe.
First you need to remove both backing and seating cushions then drop the table and fit on the two timber stays just below either side of the seating and don't forget to drop the little support leg under the table.
Fit the rectangular timber first on the inside then the table and pull out the timber extension that will make up the width of the double bed.
Now put the two seating cushions back in place the rectangular cushion in first between the seats the short back cushion next and the long back cushion on the end setting on the extension and table.Good luck i hope i explained it right.
