    Can't find it my manual and, frankly, haven't got a clue.

    Or more likely a manual self levelling device.
    Push the button the suspension alters.

    Crikey - and I thought I was up early :)

    I guess the answer is to press it and see!

    It is a switch to seperate the cab from the hab area so you can use base vehicle as a car when your not camping ;)


    Forgot to say make sure you put legs down before you press it

    It's just above the automatic gearstick, just below heater vent on right of steering wheel (left hand drive).

    You'd be up earlier if you were in a hospital bed with machines pinging and bonging all night long.

    I had a week of that with a kidney stone -luckily the hospital is right next door and what with CH being 100% private insurance it's not such a bad experience - except I shared a room with a diabetic who kept sneaking out for maccyd's and then fitting as a result.

    Hope you're not there for long.

    Yeah ... I had an old biddy who walked up and down my four bed ward in the middle of the night ... smoking. I was on an oxygen machine ... God they were long nights. No-one could find where she hid her cigarettes!!!

    I think it's meant to represent a weight .. like the brass ones for the Salter kitchen balance scales..

    If you load more weight.. you press the button to start the air compressor to increase the pressure in the air bags until the van is level ..

    It's called the "Up" button I think and will be described in the separate manual for the Comfortmatic. It holds a lower gear, delaying changing up. Supposed to be used on steep hills but I've never used it as I put it in manual on mountain passes.

    Is someone playing with a switch?

    My toilet light keeps going on and off...

    Please stop it.
