Just before New Year we used the Motor mover, (MM), to take our caravan out of storage without any problems.
Arrived on site but the MM worked intermittently, and only when I was near where the controls where in the caravan. As per instructions, I changed the 9v battery in the remote control. This seemed quite warm. Tried it on site, but still only working intermittently and when close to the controls.
We decide to cut short our visit, return home on New Year's day, and asked relatives to be on stand by, in case we need to push the van back into storage. No need. the MM worked perfectly.
I asked our neighbour, an Auto Electrician, to check both batteries and both were A1.
Phoned Powrtouch, and spoke to a very helpful bloke, who explained that nearby radio/mobile masts, (he checked an on-line map), were interfering with the radio signals of our MM remote.
The only remedy is to get as near as possible to the on board MM controls. This is a problem Powrtouch has experienced before.
Sorry to ramble on, but I hope this info may be of some use to people.
