    A VERY NICE man at Hymer Germany has very kindly sent me a complete owners manual.....In German! And, its arrived in PDF. Cant translate it, nor convert it to word, without sending Adobe enough cash to settle the national debt. Can anyone help??? Tried some google type converters, but nothing.:cry:

    Can't help with the translation but you might be able to download PDFs in English for the appliances in the van from the likes of Thetford, Truma and Dometic.

    I had this problem,- Knauss send me the manual for my FFB in German as a PDF, but a very helpful funster sat, in his spare time while he was on call, and translated it for me! Just as well because I needed it today to sort out my heating which was not working!

    What fun! Eventually found that the batteries were flat which is why the fire wouldn't light!:RollEyes:

    Good luck with getting it translated!

    Have you tried foxit reader.

    Maybe copy and past to a text file then something like google translate.

    we too had this happen.i downloaded an app on my smartphone and translated it.later i contacted a hymer man over here who sent me one in english.
    the app is good as you can either type the word in or take a photo of it and it was free.

    Ahhhh, yes, of coarse. well, it came to me 'double headed', pages side by side, if you see what I mean. So, I fired the lot into Google translator, which it duly did, but it came out a mis-match, so I just copied page by page, transferring the lot slowly onto a new 'Word' page. Copied, into folder, job done. Google is brill for translating, whole pages come up in seconds.
