The one important thing you must know is that you must not connect the tube from the pump into the van and then turn the little black switch on. This switch is only to be used when the end of the tube is held into the filler tube. If you forget this you are likely to blow the seals in the internal pipes that allow you to use the wter system either with an aquaroll or the internal tank.

I am working on the user manual but it takes time, there are somewhat over 100 pages to be scanned and then the pictures iserted into a word document that I can later make into a pdf to send on.

Hi, Bill,
That is so kind of you, I realise the time and trouble you have taken.
It is very much appreciated.
Thank you very much indeed (especially the tip about the water pump, it is just the sort of thing I would have done)
Kind regards,
George

Hello again, Bill
Just to let you know we think the van is superb. The quality of the fittings etc. are something else.
I am still looking for an awning.
In an earlier post you said you used a 750cm size as a part awning. Would you be so kind as to explain how a full awning can be made to fit like a part awning, this could be a good road to go down if I can grasp the concept.
Once again thanks for the manual and tips, it would have been difficult without.
Kind regards,
George

You need an awning and a conversion kit, isabella sell the kit but you might find one cheaper on ebay. Very carefully measure the height of the awning rail from the floor at the centre of the wheel, do it several times until you are sure you have it right. Lay the awning out on the floor and carefully (very ) select the end which is going to be the front. Now measure from the bottom of the rubber pegging point that will be the front corner of the awning next to the van, along the seam and then onto the cord the precise measurement of the height of the van, do it several times and carefully mark it. Take your stanley knife and knick the cord sufficiently to break the inside core. Starting at the back of the van insert the awning cord into the rail starting at the place you cut. If you got it right the awning should come down a little bit past the awning light and the pegging point should just brush the ground.
This is what it looks like when up.

Hi, Bill
Sorry to keep troubling you, but you seem to know more than anyone about these vans.
While looking for a suitable awning I have seen an Isabbela 680 combi awning for sale.
Do you know if this would fit the Nova 470?
Kind regards,
George

The simple answer is that I am not sure. If pushed I would think that it would be a very tight fit, it might clear the door but I have my doubts. I used one for several years on another van and found it a bit small but very sturdy. But if you can get one cheap then it will have the pole and bumper set that you require. This was mine

Hi, Bill,
More questions I am afraid.
There does not seem to be an obvious cutlery draw, or am I missing something?
Do the pots and pans go in the top cupboards?
Kind regards,
George
