    Hi all

    I have just purchased a 1991 Fiat Ducato petrol swift kontiki 6 berth. Unfortunately in all the excitement i forgot to ask how everything works ( the seller said there was all the manuals in the MH) The manuals pages were all stuck together , so unreadable. I dont even know where the leisure battery is !, or how to turn on electrics. ( i am knew to MH's can't you tell)

    It would be great if i could get a copy of the owners manual and fiat book.

    I also need a new knob on the shower/toilet door as it keeps swinging open, also a cover for one of the external lights in the upper bed part....

    So if anyone knows where I could find these things I would be very grateful.

    Love the MH !!

    hi and welcome.

    as Dave of swiftleisure has offered a manual i may be able to help with the toilet door.

    is the knob missing or doesnt it work ?

    if it doesnt work look at the back of the door.....does it have a long thin bar running from top to bottom of the door.

    on the top and bottom of this there should be a plastic hook which hook around a small pin on the door frame, top and bottom.

    from inside, close the door and see if the hooks do actually close around the pins.....they may be out of alignment and need adjusting.

    if the hooks are broken off it means a complete mechanism:cry:

    the leisure battery should be under the passenger seat.

    Oooops...just realised yours is a 1991 and mines a 2001 . they may be the same fittings though.

    Kon-Tiki leisure battery

    If you have the U-Shaped lounge model it's under the magazine box/tv table on the near side.

    Remember the recent Kno-Tiki tip about having the Al-Ko chassis suspension greased - I never knew about this when I had my '91 640.

    Not a gas conversion your new van is it? I noticed it was Petrol and I think there are few of these about. I had one about 10/12 years ago.

    Thanks guys for all your help....I shall have a look in the places you have mentioned. The outer handle on the bathroom door is broken ( one of the lugs on the screw part has snapped off)

    Kontiki Manual

    Hi there,

    I've just recently purchased a 1991 kontiki 640/6 MH but it didn't come with a manual. I noticed in a post that you offered to email a manual to a member on here. Don't suppose you could email me the manual too. I would be most greatfull, and look forward to returning the favour in the future. :Smile:

    Regards

    James

    Have to say a big thanks to Swift Group for sorting out the swift manual for me so promtly, and thanks to shirley for the offer :thumb:. Still after Van spec for the ducato 1.3 2.5 diesel van though. The Manual has all about the habitation but not van specs ie Cambelt change, tyre pressure, fuel tank size ect. I'm hoping Swift group will come to the rescue once again. :Wink:

    Out of interest does anyone know what MPG and speed they can get from there van?

    I'm working out so far that I get about 320 miles to a tank which I think works out to be near 20 MPG :cry: Get more when I floor me Subaru:BigGrin: I know journeys differ greatly ect but my journey i'm refering too, was a farly mild affair using motorways mostly going to the coast. And it's fairly flat downhear and I rarely got above 60mph. Think it works out to be 45MPH on average.

    I'd love to hear back from all different van ages and engine sizes.

    Mines a 1991 45K on clock and a 2.5 Diesel.
