    I have brought my 89 kontiki up to date inside but I am left with this. Does anyone know where I can get a new or more up to date version. I have tried everywhere.

    If the existing one is working ok, why not just cover it over with a neat box ?
    Even a hanging picture with a couple of nice spacers ( strip of beading wood perhaps ? ) would do the job :thumb:

    Have you tried Magnum Motorhomes or O'Leary Motorhomes? Both usually stock a few options.

    You won't find a more modern one that is a direct replacement I'm afraid. When they update manufacturer's tend to change everything. Best suggestion is to remove it, remove all the gubbins, then rub down & spray the front a colour of your choice using a rattle-can. If you print the appropriate words / symbols onto an OH projector slide using your PC / printer you can make a very professional job.

    Hello all, I'm probably looking on the wrong page but does anyone know where I can get a rear ladder for my Autotrail Cheyenne, excluding the manufacturers.
    thanks Mac.

    no such thing as an exact replacement for that fuseboard, but there is very little can go wrong on them either

    either respray it or cover with stickybacked vinyl to update its look

    Did you speak to O'learys or just look on the web site? You could always buy the Sargent unit off them to replace yours with @£150 Would not take a lot to rewire and you would have a nice 12 amp 3 stage smart charger built in to boot :Smile:

    you could loose it all together its just a switch fuse box and meter tuck the fuses away inside a cupboard then find a switch and small meter, if you realy need it on display move it back and fit a door over it

    I gave olearys a phone with no luck. There is absolutely no issues with it not working. It is as simple as you get after all. I'm just looking to bring it into the present time zone with the rest.

    And if not then maybe the 90's.

    Personally I'd leave well alone ... if it ain't broke then why bother replacing it? Instead I'd look to do something to disguise/cover it as has been suggested if it offends your visual senses!

    It wouldn't take much to make a 'mock' cupboard to go over it, or a mirror, picture etc, which, if you put it on hinges, can easily be swung open to read the display when necessary, or if it's light then stick-on Velcro would do the job.

    One thing to remember is that the next owner of your vehicle might like it to still have some of it's original fittings so removing it could actually prove detrimental. :Smile:
