I have just taken the plunge and purchased a 100 w solar panel kit from Falcon. Installing seems easy and the CD provided is a good guide. However getting the charging leads from the control box to the leisure batteries is a bit of a task. I wander if i can pick up the charging leads from the Calira charger under the seat in the dining area. And if so will if connected in Parralel, will it conflict or damage the charger???? Any tips or "how is your solar panel connected???
HI everyone, My Skylight on my Knaus Sun TI (07) has cracked, quoted by Knaus £500 for the piece of plastic!!!! Anyone out there with any ideas as to my problem I would be grateful. Details of the Skylight are:PMMA , V-X/B , 43R-001860.
An argument with a gatepost has rendered the rear Jokon L/H lamp cluster on my bus very poorly and I am having trouble sourcing a replacement. The problem is the outside red plastic frame that the individual units sit inside on this model, so it looks like I will need the whole shebang. Gulp! Any helpful thoughts would be very welcome. Bill.
Hi. We normally watch TV by rotating the drop down assembly to the driver side of the truck and sit one on the passenger seat and one length ways on the dinette seating (Bungy cord to the overhead locker handle keeps the TV in place!). It would be more comfortable for both viewers to use the captain seats but I am unable to rotate the TV fully to point to the front of the truck - there seems to be some sort of stop in play. Has anyone achieved this full rotation and if so how?
Was thinking of fitting an inverter and have read several posts on forums so have a fairly good idea of whats needed. However I have come across an issue that I am not sure what to do about. At the weekend I found the wire for the SP had come out of the crimp so was looking about where I could fit the Inverter and run wiring etc.
We have 2 leisure batteries in the van one under each of the front seats however they do not seem to be connected together in the conventional sense but seem to have wires from each going to the electro block where there is a terminal for B1, B2 and negative. So the question is where would I connect the Inverter to, was thinking just connecting to one battery would drain it quickly as they are only 85AH or would I have to have wires coming from each battery to the Inverter then I would have to have wires coming across the walkway between the seats. Anyone had the same problems, van is a 2016 Knaus Sky TI.
I have a 2006 SUN-TI 650MF and recently experienced electrical problems,on checking inside the Calira unit it was clearly evident a component had burnt out. This specification of unit is no longer manufactured, so I located a company in Somerset that carried out repairs to these units. The repair completed and all was ok however recently all electrics failed again and after further investigation I established that a small relay switch within the Calira was tripping. Can anyone throw light on to why it should trip, the company in Somerset just said it shouldn't happen ! It does seem illogical to put a trip switch inside the Calira unit. Any suggestions would be appreciated
I'm seriously thinking about having a VB Air Suspension system fitted to our Skywave, not sure whether to go for a full or just a rear axle system. Does anyone have experience of Air Suspension and if so what would you recommend?
