Hi everyone

Just stepping tentatively into the wonderful world of Motorhoming - having a wonderful time tying myself up in knots about how everything works in the van!
We have just taken ownership of a 2002 Peugeot Ravenna which I think will suit us just fine, but I have SO many questions, strap in!confused3

If anyone has one of these wonderful vehicles and wouldn't mind sharing their wisdom before we make our first camp stop/disaster I would certainly appreciate it!

I am particularly wrestling with how the how to get the hot water going without blowing the van up. Beyond filling the tank with water and turning stuff on, I feel I might be missing something. Look forward to learning from you.

Happy travels

Brian

Hi Brian and welcome from the East Neuk of Fife.

We have a much loved 2002 Pollensa which I believe has much in common on equipment specification with the Ravenna apart from internal layout. 

I have quite a few of the equipment manufacturers' manuals on pdf as well as hard copy, plus some are still linkable on mfgr's websites - if you can let me know which make & model water heater you have I might be able to help.

Hi Roger,

Thanks for the offers of the PDFs, that would be really useful. Once I have posted this I should be able to send you a message as I am only permitted to do so after three posts!
