    When I am approaching a roundabout and I indicate 'Right' to go to (Say) the third exit, as soon as I turn the wheel slightly left, the indicator 'Clicks off'. I know they are designed to do this, but it seems too sensitive.

    My MH has a Fiat Ducato cab. Can they be adjusted? Is this a common problem? Or is it just mine?

    BTW, when it 'Clicks off' (With the steering slightly left), it will not allow me to indicate 'Right'. So I have to wait until I am "Into" the roundabout, before I can tell the impatient Boy-Racer behind me, that I am continuing around the roundabout.

    Is the steering wheel on straight?? It sounds like the collar that turns them off is off centre

    you should be able to get a quarter to half turn before the cancel mechanism engages.

    does the stalk feel secure...no movement or wobble ?

    is the wheel straight...spokes exactly/near as damn it horizontal in a straight line ?

    any work on front suspension....tracking or wheel bearing replaced ?

    I am pretty sure it is. And also pretty sure that this problem works 'Both Ways' so to speak.

    I will check some of those out. I have only had the MH for 2 months, so I will have to check with the suppliers ref the last suggestion.
