I have a hymer tramp 554 cl with a pull down shelf for a kettle it seems to be counter balanced with a wire for ease of use .
The wire has become loose and the shelf is hard to use are there any funsters out there who have had this problem or have any idea how to fix.

Amazing idea. I'll bet there's a gas strut luring behind the back, can you see screws to remove the back.

I can see screws behind plastic caps do not want to unscrew until I have more info on how it works in case things start shooting out

That makes sense but you may have get brave, it's a first for FUN this, breaking new ground.

It's a variation on the old Victorian sash windows but you can't have a lead weight banging about so my guess a gas strut ( very popular ) or a spring.

We had the same problem, but the van was repaired under warranty, but the wire fits over the pulley wheel in the cupboard next to the pull down, dealer claimed it came off pulley as we pulled it down to quickly, but even after the repair it does not work well.

Since 2008 & many years tugging
I played with one at a show from memory felt like a gas strut, I think the cable is to limit travel.

It is not for a kettle it's for the optional coffee maker, it's a Hymer Germans drink coffee.:D:D

We had the same thing with our 698. Didn't fancy messing around. Took it back to dealer who spent an hour fixing it, but still didn't operate the same.

Can I just ask about the coffee shelf - does the shelf lock into place when pulled down as ours just goes straight back up if there is no weight on it.
