Re: Voltage sensing split charge relay

'Probably not' - I say probably because it depends on which split charge relay you have used? Is it triggered by the signal from the alternator, or does it sense voltage levels and trigger that way? If so, do you know if it senses voltage on just the starter battery or on the leisure battery too? Fo...

Re: Tailgate not sitting right after fitting new seal

Apologies - just seen that there have been more replies to this post; seal was from Brickwerks so assuming decent quality (as their stuff tends to be); I’ll try removing the seal and see what fit is like but pretty sure that it will be good as I don’t recall seeing the tailgate sitting weirdly befor...

Re: Tailgate not sitting right after fitting new seal

Thanks for replies;

I’m not sure either of the rubber stops are actually making contact - they are both a bit perished?!

I’ll try the twist idea - when in doubt apply a bit of brute force!!

Cheers !!

Tailgate not sitting right after fitting new seal

Just fitted new tailgate seal - and now the left lower corner of the tailgate looks like it is being forced open a little (<1cm) so it looks like it is not fully closed (but latch is holding it). I can't work out what it is that I have done - I have tried to make sure that the seal is seated properl...

Re: 1983 T25 Temperature Gauge Replacement

Have you tried removing the #42 relay (which is the one that drives the flashing light for low coolant circuit) - remove this and see what happens - it doesn’t explain the fault but it would be interesting. The solid on LED is strange behaviour - they usually fail so that they flash all the time rat...

Westfalia Skylight Seal

Morning, With the recent epic rain I have water pouring (well very fast drip) in through the pop top skylight; Looks like it is coming in between the seal and the actual skylight on the right side (and a slower leak towards the rear) I did try installing a replacement seal (from BW) a while back but...

Re: AGG Oil Leak Advice

There should be a rubber washer on the end of it that creates the seal. If you slide the clip out and gently pull the pipe out and check to see or replace. If the pipe is original it will be brittle but could be cracked too. Brickwerks sell them if needed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Brillia...

Pcb to fit 14 way connector

I had a look at these but couldn't find one that had drilled holes that you could solder a wire into/onto - they all seem to be just pads? Or have you seen anything more useful?

Re: Wiring for ignition switch on fridge. Pictures please

Not sure if the pic below helps at all with what is going on between the switch and the ignitor; Do you definitely have 12V going into the ignitor and definitely have a good ground connection going out (through the choc block connection); If the actual spark generator down at the back of the fridge ...

Re: RM212 Fridge - Electric Ignition not working

... after hooking the van up to the mains, the igniter starts to work again after 20 mins or so. ... Once the igniter is working it lights the gas with no issue at all. The two above items point towards an electrical issue - and if the ignitor really does just start working after 20mins then that p...

Re: Radiator fan not kicking in

Its not hidden. There are two wires with spade connectors that just slot straight on to open and visable connections. Its like its missing some sort of box. Would you be able to post a picture of this - it looks like it might be a bit unconventional... (i.e. someone might already have messed around...

Re: What should the oil light do when starting?

Are you saying that the light goes off 'before' the engine starts?
So, if you have the ignition switch in the first position (and do not start the engine) - does the LED light then go out (with the engine still not running)?

Worth having a look at the below post - it looks a lot like the capacitor on your gauge may be dead;
