The wheel tub on my single axle espire555 got damaged. Where could I get a new one? Avan spare parts are not very helpful.

Avan 555 DOM 6/2019. the hot water system stopped working on both gas and electric. The gas lighter is flicking but no gas flame. The hws unit is a Watermark 60111. The unit is usually turned on and I suspect the water tank was too low it this a possible reason?
Is there a reset button?

We were going to buy an Avan 555.5 but after reading all your problems I think we will buy something else. Had an Autotrail Delaware last an No problems like all of you are having.

Our Fly screen just stopped working when we were pulling it shut. Is there a manual we can use to fix it. It’s a horrex brand.
Cheers

We had the sliding screendoor, useless but if yours is the same just clean out the track.
We replaced all with a Camec door and security screen door.

Hi!
Could anyone tell me if the lounge ( not the L-shape lounge) can be configured into a bed for a child? Any pictures would be appreciated.

I have a 2012 Avan Aspire 499. There is no water coming out when I turn on the switch and open tap. I did empty water a month ago and have now filled back up. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Mike

I've never had that and I thought I'd had every fault. It sounds like the pump needs priming. Maybe google how to do that??

how do we get the fridge to work when not plugged into 240v

Mike
Mike  

If your level the gas fridge will work
We check the vents are clear, turn on gas at bottles, turn fridge to gas setting, click the lighter and push in gas button and repeat a few times.
On ours eventually the gas ignites and the bar moves across, then we let go of the button. If yours is the same it's easy.
The instructions booklet will help

When we finish we turn off gas at the bottle and then when fridge has used gas in the line, we turn off gas at fridge.

Hi there,
I have an Avan Aspire 587-1 purchased 14/9/2017, amongst my manuals I cannot ascertain the battery management system, as I am considering the path of Lithium and solar panels also an inverter to run off grid if required.
Is there a grouping for Aspire owners to exchange info? TIA

We have a aspire 572 and have never tried the fridge on gas until today can't even hear the igniter click the fuse is fine any other ideas please.

Mike

There's a bad fault in my Aspire, maybe in yours.
The fridge brochure says the access to the rear should be done differently to how its built. I asked Avan why their caravan not manufactured in accordance with component makers instructions but zero help.
Because of this problem you'll possibly have to take fridge out to fix igniter. That's what I had done.
It's a big job and you may prefer to get a repairman.
I'm really surprised Avan didn't offer to install a simple circular access hatch, the part costs maybe $6-

Is your fridge a Thetford N3000 if so then have you tried on Automatic change to 240v then turn off power and see if it goes to 12v then turn on gas bottle and it should change automatically.
Good luck.

We have a hard top 555 2019 the battery appear to be flat it is 3 years old so we plug it into 240 volt but still no power at all. The van has only been used once because of all the lockdowns. Can anyone help with sorting this one out?
Thanks

Mike
Mike  

Just take battery to auto electrician to check but it's likely so flat it will only charge by driving behind the car, the 240v charger on my Aspire will not charge if its dead flat, I have to tow for several hours
Auto electrician first just to be safe

Dead batteries usually recharge with a CTEC 25000 Reconditioning charger. I have a car with a 6 year old battery and still going fine

Just asking if I could attach a portable solar panel to the grey anderson plug that goes from the tow vehicle to the van fridge, would it charge the battery?

Mike
Mike  

I've got a separate Anderson plug that goes to a solar regulator to charge batteries its not the plug for hot wire from car

Greg M
Greg M  

When my caravan is in storage I have a 16w panel (removable) through to an Anderson plug, then into the van where i have a regulator wired direct to the battery. I was told the I could not use the normal Anderson as it has other chargers before the battery.
I hope this helps

Eric A

I had an extra Anderson plug fitted to enable a portable solar panel to be used when van is not being used.
Mine did not come with solar panels!
