I'm not happy carrying these unused attatchments, (rear Staberlisers as necessary on caravans.) I will be removing the pair from our Nuevo 11. However I wonder if this may "void" the very detailed A/S guarantee. further comments appreciated, especially from Motor-homeing solicitors ? who may have studied the warranty. agree3

I wouldnt have thought it would invalidate the warranty as they are bolt on item, but unless you are looking at the weight of the van, like CC I cant see any reason to remove them.
We have never used the steady legs on the two AS vans we have owned but have left them on (no choice on the Exec as they were welded to the towbar)

Hi C. C. Well I'm surprised, as I said, I have never "used" them or any others. Surely motorhomers go on about "the weight" problem. Take one off and see how many bottles of wine you could import safely ( police weigh bridges , ) in their place. Or to end on a silly note---leave that very heavy "spare wheel" at home, I have needed one once, in Italy 20 years ago. and before someone replies m.o.t I know I know ---replace it,take it, and test it. Sunday morning too in north Cotswolds?. Happy to help. Brian K.

Hi Roli, Obviously you hav'nt read the latest A/S warranty schedule, these stabilisers are supplied as an AS fixture then read the warranty, if they break we must argue with the supplier of them--according to A/S as with all other fittings --Fridge-- Heaters---Pumps etc.-- thats how "I" read the Warranty. However, I met with a Fridge replacment situation and stood my ground at Willersley. The replacment took place at my residence by Thetford -yes Thetford. we have sponsored 2 of em so far. The warranty states any alterations to the A/S design invalidates the warranty. Remember, Charles is no longer available !! I mentioned "solicitor" in my initial post, thats why I hoped one would reply having read the warranty as its easy for me to "get it wrong", has no forum members read the small print of the warranty or am I the only member with one ? 2011 Nuevo 11. innocent Brian K.

Here is another unusual thought. smile!

My first van was a Lancashire with rear steadies which we rarely used.

However, one day in France I was waiting at a junction when a French car hit the rear end of the van. Luckily he was at a slight angle and although he made a mess of the bumper his car was much the worse for the impact. I could not believe how much damage he had incurred and my vehicle so little. And then I realised the rear steady had taken the impact and caused him grief. To my amazement the rear steady still functioned and did not need replacing. I feel sure it saved the rear panel of my van from a direct hit from this poor French car. up!

Hi Roli, so having read the "warranty" how do you feel about it, surely A/S cant write themselves out of responsibility, they purchase all the fittings selling them on. surely the initial purchaser is the one entitled to warranty cover. any fitted unit could be damaged on fitting or whenever, dealers etc: prior to the "sale" hence worth a lawyers eyeball--if only for fun !! thanks for the interest mate. scratch head Brian K.

Hi Bob, Glad the Stabs: proved strong and robust, I know they are thats the reason to remove them "useless weight" good point raised re rear impact tho, best fit a T/bar and 50mm ball to tow something far more use giving it a quick thought. MMM readers letters sub: said the stabilisers were removed and the immense space recovered meant he could carry the levellers and track stuff under-slung, on brackrts. makes sense a. up! Brian K.

We use ours, and welcome the effect they have. A weighty luxury perhaps, but one we appreciate .
