    I am having problems with the internal lights on my 2005 Xplorer. No power is reaching the lights. The fuses in the Hercules box are all working and 12v is leaving the box. Is there another inline fuse somewhere that may have blown?

    is it all the lights or just one? if its all the lights it sounds like its a neutral fault close to the Hercules box.

    There are quite a few connectors situated under the beds and in the light switches. Start with the closest to the panel and check.
    The line for the left side of the van travels from the panel down towards the back and splits up into the overhead closets. The bottom continues along the back and the long the left side to the outside plug and further into the cupboards next to the door.
    Good luck

    I have retained the Hercules but disconnected the 12v charging system and replaced with a Victron Smart Charger.

    I cut a hole in the side of the panel to which the Hercules is currently mounted and turn the panel to show outwards.

    That way I have easy access to the panel
    To finish it off I used a small door which is used on the slide out kitchen to cover the panel. Looks good!

    I went the same route. The only thing I use the Hercules for is for the 220V feed. Everything else that is 12V is disconnected from the Hercules, including the batteries. For the three 105A batteries I have a quality, dedicated charger permanentely mounted in the caravan. Since it is intelligent, including automated maintenance charging of the batteries and trickle charging, I can now leave the caravan permanentely plugged in while parked at home, knowing that my batteries will be properly maintained and not randomly cooked. Every 12V line of of the batteries are fused and goes through a monitor so I can see exactly how much power I have drawn from the batteries. My solar feed into the batteries also feeds through a monitor so that when I run on solar only, I know whether I am putting enough power back into the batteries or whether I'm running up a deficit.

    I also have a switch on the line of of the batteries so that I can cut off the 12V power to all devices. I typically use this while parked at home. By switching it off as well as the 220V switch on the Hercules, I can prevent the fridge from running or any other devices from draining the batteries. I've also got a battery protector in the mix to ensure that the batteries will never be drained too low. Using all of this I'm guaranteed that my batteries will never be fully drained because some Muppet mistakenly switched off the plug feeding the 220V power to the battery charger.

    I agree.

    Nowhere is there a full picture of the caravan that has this suspension.

    The chinkies playing a funny game here.

    Posting different photos off different trailers.

    And that suspension set up is evil looking. Will last 1 day on a dirt road.....

    I'm looking for the part numbers for the wheel bearings used on my 2004 Xplorer so that I can get a spare set to keep in the van. I have done a search on the forum but haven't been able to find the info I'm looking for. I don't want to buy from my local caravan dealer as I'm not happy with the way their bearings are stored in an open bin and not in sealed boxes. I'd rather buy from my normal bearing supplier but I need the part numbers for the bearings.
    Thanks. Paul.

    Try giving Campworld in Boksburg a call and ask them if they can give you the part number. I've always found them to be very helpful.

    Paul if I was not so legless at the moment I would drag my spare out and get the numbers.

    Just be carefull. Alko fitted about a dozen different hubs to the Xplorer axcles, so a set of bearings that fit on one might not fit on a similar year model at all! Best is to take old set out and go to bearing place and get new ones and then keep old ones as spare or buy two sets. Keep the spare set in a snall bucket with some wheelbearing grease and a spare split pin.

    Mine is a 2004 model without the front fold-out bed.
    I had both hubs off just after we bought the van to re-grease the bearings but didn't think to take down the bearing part numbers.

    Year model mean nothing. They differ depending on which batch they took the axle from. So same day even can have different bearings.

    Rather replace and get copy.

    Can you confirm how much more clearance you score with the storage wheels for storage. I need 8cm (9cm or more will be great) to fit my xplorer in the garage.
