    My toilet door has a long magnetic strip that keeps it shut, the model is Swift Sundance 630L, where might i find one of these strips? I have rang my local dealers and they say they are struggling but im sure i sawon here a Swift rep who can help (or maybe it was the other! forum).
    Can anyone help at all?

    I shall await his arrival ;-) I dont really want to put a bolt in it, its a 2007 model if that helps it seems the strip has lost its magnetism toward the top. I dont mind sticking a new one on it doesnt look too much trouble. But where to get one from well thats another story.

    Certainly worth giving Peter a holler as Dylan suggested - he'll sort it for you I'm sure - why not drop him a PM? :Smile:

    Id try a local car sign writing company. They manufacture magnetic signs for cars/vans etc which is made from the same stuff and will no doubt be a much better price that a genuine part.:thumb:

    We had the same problem but fixed it with a free 'turnbuckle' catch from the dealer... fittings should be available from caravan outlets.

    Just wish I could find a solution to the Oven door... OK 99.99% of the time then ... opens!!! ...neither rhyme nor reason:Doh:

    Hi

    I've got quite a length of magnetic strip. This used to be on the hand built Buccaneer Caravans on the shower door. It sticks on the back and the 2 magnetic strips come together. If you want this let me have your address and I'll post it to you and you can reimburse me with the postage. My email is jmoore2006@btinternet.com

    Let me know

    Jack the Rev

    Hi, and thanks, but its an enclosed magnet, maybe i should try and get a pic of it and put it on here.
    I have rung my local dealers and they say they are flummoxed by it as the people they have rung dont know what it is and the Swift group wont allow parts enquiries so what alot of use they are so it seems no one can help me which seems a bit odd. Any ideas?
