Changed the mover rollers and some


Question

Posted

Had a good day yesterday, I managed to do all the jobs I wanted to do, which makes a change because normally the first job goes wrong and I spend all day trying to fixi it. laugh.png

Renewed the front light relfector

Renewed the gas strut on the bed so now it stays up on its own again instead of dropping on my head

Renewed the soap dish in the shower

Repaired the fridge door shelf

Repaired the front locker drawer base

and the biggest job for me anyway was changing the rollers on the motormover.

For those needing to replace the rollers, the end cap retaining bolts get corroded in, especially the bottom ones so spray them well with WD40 a few times. i snapped the bottom ones and rather than cut them off and drill out the bolts I ordered 2 new end cap from Powrtouch.

But they are done now so happy days just need some good weather so we can try everything out :/

I too have had difficulty and ended up taking the whole lot off to remove one roller, people forget to grease them when they fit them

Do the rollers wear out?

Do you mean the rollers that are in contact with the tyre?

Yes they have a rubber type coating on them, this wears off.

    • AL-KO Kober launches new motor-mover for single-axle touring caravans
      By markf

      AL-KO Kober Limited – the leading manufacturer of premium components for the automotive, commercial and leisure industries – has launched the AL-KO Ranger, a new manoeuvring system for single-axle touring caravans up to 1,800kg. 

      Designed as a lower-cost, entry-level alternative to the company’s premium Mammut mover, the AL-KO Ranger features manual engagement onto the wheels when required and can be quickly disengaged once the caravan is in position. The motor units, situated in front of the axle to prevent damage from road debris, provide effortless and accurate manoeuvring control in even the narrowest of spaces, as well as on steep terrains up to 18% and for getting over obstacles up to two centimetres in height. The unit’s soft start and soft stop technology also provides enhanced, controlled and precise bump-free manoeuvring.

      Commenting for AL-KO Kober, a spokesman says: “The new AL-KO Ranger motor-mover is an attractively-priced alternative for those people who want the combination of the trusted AL-KO brand name with a cost-effective price point, coupled with the benefit of easier manoeuvring of their caravan. Thanks to its easy-to-operate remote control, the mover provides millimetre-precise accuracy and completely effortless manoeuvrability. With the ability to complete a 360-degree rotation of single-axle touring caravans on the spot, the AL-KO Ranger puts the caravan in the right place, whether at home or on site.”

      The AL-KO Ranger’s mechanics – including its aluminium rollers and motor units – are protected within a plastic housing mounted via a clamp mechanism to the underside of the caravan’s chassis. The electronics can be installed inside one of the caravan’s storage spaces; and an LED display on the controller and push-button remote control alerts users to various working limits of the motor mover.

      Like AL-KO Mammut, the new Ranger is provided with a five-year warranty according to AL-KO Warranty Terms.

      The AL-KO Ranger mover can be retrofitted to most caravans, including non AL-KO chassis caravans, and can be purchased from most caravan dealers, mobile fitting companies and caravan accessory outlets.  

      Stocks of the motor-mover – which has a suggested retail price of £1,099.00 including installation – are available from caravan industry wholesaler, Leisure Plus, based in Hixon, Staffordshire.

      For further information on the AL-KO Ranger or the company’s range of leisure-sector solutions, visit www.al-ko.co.uk, email ranger@al-ko.co.uk or call 01926 818500.
