    Finally got my hands on one of these a 2007 model.
    I know absolutely nothing whatsoever about them!! Im trying to work out what mine has got as extras or what i can have!
    Its got a bike rack, fiamma awning, reversing camera, microwave, fridge, cooker, 7 inch screen in the front. Are all or any of these extras?
    Also i have found a screw in ariel in the cupboard probably for a radio, any ideas where this goes ?? Also the reversing camera is a bit dicky it flickers on and off and also i wonder where to stick a dvd or ps so the kids can watch or play? Also i would like tv....do i have an ariel?? Is there one intergrated or do i have to buy one and if so where do i get it?
    Can i run anything on the van just from the leisure battery and if so where is it located also can i run things while the van is being driven?
    Also there is a cupboard with LPG on it, do i just put normal propane bottles in this or is it for something different?
    Oh, also, the toilet door flies open while your driving and there is a flap on the floor that you enter the water container and this blows up while your driving along, any ideas how to secure these?
    So many questions i know but we all gotta learn somewhere !!

    Hi Hotrod, did you take a breath writing that?:BigGrin: getting a new motorhome is an exciting time, and it seems every cupboard hides a different switch or gizmo, and you certainly have a fair bit to familiarise yourself with if you are new to motorhomes. A good place to start is with Swift themselves, they keep a few manuals and handbooks <here>.

    I am sure we will have a member that has the same motorhome as you and should be able to easily answer your more specfic questions. Meanwhile, Welcome to the fun:thumb:

    Hi hotrod,
    tv aerial should be in the storage wardrobe inside although mine is a bessacarr e495 (2007) I think they are both very similar.

    I just put a self tapping screw in the hatch for the water.

    Radio Aerial is internal in the door mirror (but not very good, someone may have fitted an after market aerial on the wing!)

    My battery is under the bench in the rear lounge

    I could only fit 6kg propane bottles in my LPG cupboard (1 or 2)
    Hope this helps
    Kev

    Did you manage to sort out the aerial problem? I have the Bessacarr E435 on the new X 2/50 chassis and the radio is driving me mental. Been down to the local auto audio shop today and they are saying a booster may help or a windscreen aerial but I am not sure.

    I don't want all the hassel if it is something simple in the end.

    Might be best to get an external aerial fitted, known problem but there might be a solution which I will ask about tomorrow.

    Regards

    Bessacarr aerial

    Hi Diabalo,
    I tried fitting an internal booster aerial from Halfords, the one that goes on the inside of the screen, but this was not any better (probably a bit worse, with interference). I think my next move will be to fit an external one myself, just a matter of finding the right one, because I would hate to go to all the aggro of drilling the wing and the radio reception being the same!!

    Has anyone done it on the new Fiats?? perhaps Johns Cross motorhomes will know!

    Hi,

    To be honest I forgot to ask:cry: and as I am now down on the boat in Poole, please give my lot a ring, ask Ian or Glenn, they will have the answer.
