I have one of the early Truma motor movers (about 12 years old) and its stopped working. I have new batteries in the remote and the red led comes on. There is a new 110amp/hr battery on the van, fully charged and I get a click when connecting it. If I press the reset button on the receiver unit I get a series of rapid clicks but it still won't work. Any suggestions would be welcome please.

Try going through the 'pairing' procedure - there should be one in the manual.

Thanks, I did try that but holding the reset button for 5 seconds as it says only results in a series of rapid clicks from the unit. There doesn't appear to be a green led light on it.

Ok Michael so here's the latest. Cleaned all terminals, battery fully charged. Only noticed in the dark that green led on control box is constantly flashing. If I hold in the reset button it just gives rapid clicks, still no response from remote. Sounds like it might be a fault on the unit, what do you think.

So, got the whole control unit off, set up on bench with a battery and voltmeter and everything works fine until I press the button for reverse on the offside wheel. The unit then trips out. I reset it and every time I press offside reverse it trips out. All other buttons work fine. My electrical knowledge is limited so suggestions would be most appreciated. Possibly one of the relays I guess.

We had an old Truma and every now and then it would give up the ghost tripping out at the most inconvenient time. Finally one day the one motor would not rotate so gave up on it and purchased a Powertouch Evo.
