Hi everyone, change my Swift Sundance year 2000 to a 2006 Autosleeper Exexutive (I think as no manuals or markings and AS have never answered my emails with enquiries and chassis number) - so still haven't managed to get a pdf version of a manual.
I have been a motorhome owner for the last 4 years and me and my wife Libby love travelling across to the mainland and staying in the small CL sites round the amazing scenery of SW England, Wales, Highlands, Yorkshire etc - off to France this year first time in France with the campervan.

Have to say I love the Autosleeper Executive and especially the leg room for me (6ft) my wee wife only 5ft so no isses - and we try to get away every 2nd or 3rd weekend here in Northern Ireland to the north coast or Donegal. Just back also from 4 days round SW and S Coast of Ireland

As for issues so far I have seen the drainage problem talked about in the shower and had it in and was told it is just down to the routing of the pipework i.e. no blockages. The element needed changed in the heater as well. And the blind came away from its top fixing - supper glued strip and opened so will see tomorrow if successful. - no ladder either and just got one today.

MOT next week so hopefully all will be ok.

Anyway War & Peace.....great to be on the forum

Cal.

Welcome Cal to the forum
One of the Executives "tank draining" problems is due to the beer tap type drain valve. I have replaced a few with a straight through ball valve made by CAK Tanks (Supadrain) with 1" hose adapters fitted. (The valve is stocked by most mainland dealers and can be recognised by its grey body and red lever) It almost halves the draining time. Later vans had a SS Straight through valve fitted as standard so the message must have got through.

Thanks All for the warm welcome.

Yes Roili I read one of your postings with interest - i had done something similar on my old van - my problem is more the grey water from shower to tank that the workshop said was the routing path going down the hill and then up again!

Hello and welcome from one Executive owner to another. Can't help with a manual i'm afraid. If you do manage to get a pdf file I would love a copy. If I can help you with anything else give me a shout.

Once again welcome. Whisky smile!

Just a thought Cal, if you are trying to get info off Autosleepers you need the vans build number which can be found on a sticky label in the glove box, it may be something like K1234.

If you have no luck on here (or looking online) there is another possible source for the manual but would cost you £20 - join ASOC they hold some van manuals copies of which I think are available to members
