Post by Scratch on Sun Jun 14, 2015 8:42 pm

Can anyone tell me how to unlock the fresh water filler cap from our Talisman as I have tried & tried & tried without any success shrugg also, went for a drive out today just to give the MH a run and decided to try the TV, inserted the ariel into the TV & obviously plugged the mains in but it wouldn't work shrugg  my question is: will the TV run on the 12v system when parked up, or is it a n other ??

Hi there,

1.  To unlock the water filler cap ....

o  Turn the cap clockwise a few times (if it doesn't turn clockwise it means it isn't locked),

o  Insert the key and HOLDING THE CAP TO PREVENT IT FROM TURNING turn the key anti-clockwise.

o  Remove the key.

You should now be unable to turn the cap clockwise and a couple of turns anti-clockwise will allow it to be removed.  (If this doesn't happen then it is possible that the key requires turning clockwise before it is removed.)

If any of these moves fail to work then I suggest that you lubricate the lock with a few drops of olive oil, slide the key in and out and turn it a few times to spread the oil around and then start the process all over again.

To reinstate the cap ....

o  Put the cap in the filler pipe and turn it clockwise until it is nice and tight.  (No need to overdo it!)

o  Put the key in the lock and HOLDING THE CAP TO PREVENT IT FROM TURNING turn the key clockwise.

o  Remove the key.

The filler cap should now rotate in either direction without coming out.

2.  The TV normally works on 12v without EHU.

It will probably be on a separate switch somewhere other than the switch on the TV set; so "Seek and ye shall find!" 

Hope this helps. allthumbz

Excellent comprehensive info Dutto, with give it a try and see if that works up! 

Regarding the TV. Have tried EHU and it works fine but I need to now try and tune the TV to Midland channels as it was initially set up for North West signals, that is where we picked the MH from but as stated before, cant get it to work on 12v  think_smiley_46



Thanks for your help

Do you have a separate 12v lead and plug and if you have is it plugged into a 12v socket? If it's a 12v/230v TV there is no reason for it not to work. You'll have to do a retune every time you stop in a different location and if you have a directional aerial that also will have to be turned every location to point to the strongest transmitter. Look at others around you including any houses to see which direction they point.

Hello Paulmold.

Not sure about the 12v lead scratch head all I did when trying out the TV whilst on the drive (house that is and not moving  hugegrins ) was to use the EHU it worked fine but had to retune the set. The TV has a separate ariel which was inserted into the ariel socket of the TV and the kettle lead was then plugged into the mains 3 pin plug socket, obviously not the same when pulling in somewhere scratch head we are new to the MH clan as we had static's for 10yrs and still finding our feet hugegrins

Ah. PaulMold will no doubt confirm when he has a chance that a dual voltage TV has separate leads for the separate electrical systems. You have succeeded in getting the TV to work using the mains (230v); for it to work on the 12v system, you must connect it (usually using the supplied 12v lead which is designed to plug into the set and, at the other end it will often have a cigar-lighter male plug) into the vehicle's 12v system which usually runs off a (healthy) liesure battery. I assume you have a liesure battery, and a cigar-type female socket or similar in the vehicle.

Have a look at the label on back of TV and see what power it needs. It may read 12v or it may read 230/240v. Let us know and we'll go from there.
