    Has anyone had any experience with the Autowatch 695 System?

    We`ve had ours fitted to our 2013 Autotrail Apache from new 18mths ago, not had any issues with it until last weekend.

    Opened the motorhome with the Fiat key fob, loaded the motorhome with soft furnishing.
    Locked the system with a single press of the centre button on the Fiat key fob, 2 mins later Alarm goes off, checked doors etc all ok.
    Re-locked motorhome, 2 mins alarm goes off, tried locking motorhome with two presses of the button (this isolates interior ultra-sonics) 2 mins alarm goes off.

    If there is a door or exterior locker open you get an audible warning when trying to lock system so no worries there all ok, opened engine bonnet to check bonnet switch seems ok.

    Finally managed to lock motorhome without alarm going off, shame is I don`t know what happened.

    Today opened motorhome to sort some things and when I tried to lock up again alarm went off the same as before...Grrr

    Tried several times before giving up and had to be content locking with door key.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    I have the same alarm fitted to my AT Comanche, had this happen once and it was the mating of the two contacts on the garage locker door which I had knocked during loading. Don't know if this helps.

    I have had two systems from them (cant remember numbers) and they were spot on reliable. one had the sounder under bonnet replaced as a factory recall. would def use again, good value for money as well

    Hi Thanks for that, checked all contacts and they are ok around less than 5 mm apart, I`m wondering if it might be the battery inside the habitation contacts but at 18mths old I`m clutching at straws.

    If it is an Autowatch 695 ring Autowatch Technical on 0844 880 4987, as they make the system and are very helpful.

    Autowatch are nothing to do with Autoarm
