History
This is a standard model which during previous ownership has been well looked after. Because of the age there are and will be small maintenance issues and breakages. It goes with the territory.
Clutch broke going through Lyndhurst high street on the first day of ownership! Replaced September 2020.
House bank battery added to double the capacity (refer below) Oct 2020.
Experience of Hymer, great outdoor pace of life, would recommend!
1997 Hymer E510 (White)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Red light on dashboard, no symbol. Found out to be engine management light, took to specialist who found loose wire. As the mileage builds the light blinks less frequently. Also no longer crawl around dual carriageway roundabouts. A relief!
Interior
Purchase of a 300w inverter for the laptop, which is not satisfactory. Laptop does not like the DC delivery.
Exterior
Solar panels of unknown age were added (6 years ago???). There is a 2x70w array, which is under powered for the use of a fridge (240v/12v), Trume hot air gas heater/bioler and mobile laptop set up.
October 2020 doubled the house bank to 2x12 100ah batteries. his has meant the frideg operates for approx 2 days before seeking a hook up!
Next on the agenda is replace holding catch for one of the lockers as the plastic retainer broke due to UV damage!
Suspension
Air susoension added to rear axle. Makes for a softer/gliding ride.
