    We have KONTIKI 679 which we acquired privately in October 2009, the van was first registered in March 2008. From when we got the van we have had ongoing electrical problems.

    The control panel went faulty and along with the fuse box was sent back to SWIFT for a software upgrade, SWIFT said they never received the part but had signed for them so they replaced them. The new parts were fitted to the van and it worked well for a few days then started playing up once more, this time I was advised by the local auto electrician that the leisure battery was faulty, this was replaced and now the cab battery has gone faulty and I have now replaced this as well.

    The problem still persists as the power in the back works intermittently, i.e. the lights don't work nor the tv but the fridge does work.

    We are now exasperated and any advice would greatly appreciated

    Hi Phil.
    I am in walsall near jct 10 of m6 so long way from aberdeen and not in scotland for another 5 or 6 months.Fault is probably something silly but would need to trace cables,check switches etc.
    If you are down this way then feel free to come round but would be cheaper for you to get a local auto electrician,less than cost of diesel there and back.

    it sounds very much like your fuse board has failed again , I would contact customer care at Swift for help and advice

    Hi all
    Our Kontiki 345 2009 has got issues with its electrics which won't let the fridge work on gas or battery Chelston suggested that the fuseboard is the problem and the " D+ feed" in not working
    They are not keen to take the matter forward
    Any suggestions very well received after a whacking great bill! Please.
