    Autotrail

    If one has been fitted I believe the sensor is located against the electric step

    Try e-mailing Auto-trail from their web site on the "technical queries" part of the contact section.
    It will help if you have the build number of the MH, often to be found on the PSU. Probably five digits (ie 12345).

    Web site is www.auto-trail.co.uk

    Hope that helps. :thumb:

    as said, under te side near the step, however a lot of them dont work, the sensor gets cover in crud the wires break and there more trouble than there worth.

    mud flap

    We were amazed whilst looking around the new Auto-trails at the Birmingham show.
    2013 models costing £70.000 plus and Auto-trails design team still haven`t managed to work out that a step placed near a road wheel will get covered in crap.
    For an easy solution all they need is a mud flap simples, step keeps clean, unprotected wiring protected. simples and what have they done with the gas locker, now made from thin galvanised sheeting, bet that sounds good with gas battles rattling around and also a huge gap down the side wall which will just fill up with more road crap. duuur.:Doh:

    Temp Sensor

    I have had two Autotrail vans on both, the sensor was located in the battery compartment, these had Sargent electrics on them.
