Lesson twelve: cab and swivel seats

This article and video demonstrate the operation of the swivel seats and cab dash in a Benimar motorhome

New Additional Features to the Cab and Dash

Since the filming of this article, two new features have been added to the Ford and Fiat Dash as follows:


AutoStop
The idea behind the start-stop system is if the engine is stopped for short periods, for example, while waiting at traffic lights, the engine will stop which reduces emissions and fuel consumption. When you remove your foot from the break the engine will start again.
If you do not wish to use this feature, just press the button (see below what the button symbol looks like) to turn it off.
In the Ford Transit, you will find this button on the left of your radio just below the vent.
In the Fiat Ducato, you will find this button on the right-hand side of your steering wheel near the “Mode” buttons.



Radio Switch
A radio switch has been added to your motorhome so you can run your cab radio off your house battery. Depending on how your motorhome is wired up, when you turn off your key your radio will turn off so it does not drain your truck battery. Just remember to turn it back off after use so it doesn’t drain your house battery.

  • In the Ford Transit, the radio switch is located up on the right-hand side of your top dash near the windscreen.
  • In the Fiat Ducato, the radio switch is located under the radio and the heater controls down by the drink holders.

 

Please Note: 

  • You will be provided with the Truck manual, so if you want more detail please refer to your manual.
