    Whilst we were away on our jolly round France we had a prob with the control panel/charging unit which meant the liesure battery was'nt charging on the EHU but when we ran the engine no probs...we went to the dealers today...confirmed charger U/S..this is a brand spanking new van Autocruise Startrail well six months old why should a charging unit fail after such a short time??!!
    The sparky told me that this is a problem with Autocruise as they have had a spate of this happening lately..thats really the only major fault...no water ingress in the engine bay....no judder..(yet!!)

    There have been a couple of bits of trim come off but the service manager at the dealers has been all apologies and replaced them himself (as he says you paid all this money you want it to look right)

    I'll just say as I know Swift the holding company of Autocruise check this and other forums it's over to you Swift for your reply

    Jim I hope I have'nt broke any rules here

    Should it fail after only 6 months, course not BUT
    its electrical and just like anything mechanical or electrical it has a % of units fail early some may not even work out of the factory, the fault lies fully with the units manufacturers not Swift or the guy who fitted it, ultimatley who ever supplied the Motor home carries the can:Doh:

    Mine had a new one after only 3 months, prior to my ownership.
