    Step prob moved because it was seized, they are replaceable, look out for second hand one, will try my sources if you are interested.

    AC is usually removed to save weight, trying to get under 7.5t, again possible to replace with pre owned.

    Good luck,

    Hi Thanks for replying,

    The step is the most important as my girls struggle to climb in! If you hear of any that will be grand.

    Hi Chris and Kelley and a big welcome.
    Must be 2 very expansive items to replace and I hope that you get a good deal.
    The following is my warning to newbies about some dealers so buyer beware when spending your hard earned dosh.


    DAVID STRATTON, 2 months ago

    Having lived and worked abroad for the last 20 years it was always my intention to purchase a motor home on my return to the UK when I retired. I spent a lot of time and effort to find the right vehicle and eventually settled on a Devon Tempest, 2 years old and with 1500 miles on the clock. What I should have done was completed the purchase after the dealer Dolphin Motor homes had done the habitation check. my mistake!. The van was sent off to their Southampton branch for the habitation certificate to be issued and in my opinion that is what they did, issued the certificate because they certainly DID NOT DO THE WORKS, the van was delivered to me with a faulty fresh water tank, waste water problem, toilet badly functioning and other jobs either done badly or not done at all.

    The waste water tap was ceased and needed renewing the electrics on the fresh water system were faulty there was a bolt missing from the strike plate on the rear door the swivel seats would not swivel the radio and Sat nav system did not work along with other problems. All of these problems I was assured would be corrected but the van had to go back to Southampton as the Iford branch only has a valeting bay and not a mechanics workshop, imaging my surprise 3 days later when I phoned Southampton to be told “NO” we do not have a bay to lift the vans and our man has taken his tools to Iford to carry out the faults there, (obviously laying on his back on the floor)

    The offending problems were all done bar the radio/sat nav which apparently 3 people had tried to correct, the main dealer had been contacted , who was not prepared to give free advice and eventually the MD fiddled with the system (his words not mine) and after 15 minutes did manage to solve part of the problem. I have solved the remaining fault with a friend. I now intend to have the gas check done by an independent engineer All of the running about has been at my expense and I feel that the company had no interest what so ever after my monies had been banked..

    I started by explaining that I had been abroad for twenty years and am aware that the UK is named RIP OFF BRITAIN; service like this only adds fuel to the fire. IWOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY:((n):((n):((n)

    unless you are going to tour southern Europe in summer I wouldn't bother about replacing the a/c unit.. waste of payload and they can only be used on sites with EHU

    some useful info on steps.. manual ones are both cheaper and more reliable..

    or if you are a bit short on cash.. buy a plastic or metal caravan step .. even cheaper.. a beer / bottle crate
