Elddis 155 hab door


Recommended Posts

After unlocking with the remote try opening and closing a cab door. This tells the alarm/central locking that you have entered the MH and to not re-lock it.


The manufacturer has taken the cheap option of not adding a switch to the hab door to tell the alarm you have entered. Ask the dealer to get it corrected as, IMO, it is not fit for purpose.

Hiya, just got our new van the other day, the hab door seems to automatically lock behind us, is there anyway to avoid this. Can see us locking ourselves out :-S


My new Transit based Chausson Welcome 610 does this as well - if the hab door is opened from the remote, around 45 seconds later it relocks. I concluded that it was beacuse Chausson have not fitted the equivalent of a rear door courtesy light switch, so the Ford Body Control Module doesn't "see" that the door has been opened and does it's EU-mandated automatic relock as a result. I mentioned it to the supplying dealer, who was well aware of the trait.


Added to this, the latches that Chausson use on the garage & gas locker doors can be set to lock when pushed in without the key present, providing another opportunity to lock the keys inside, so I hang the keys around my neck on a lanyard when outside the van. This also helps prevent the panics from putting the keys down "somewhere" & forgetting where the "somewhere" is !"
