    Ant Help me PLEASE

    The roof on my 1989 Hylo has jammed on nearside front corner, I thought that I had polished it enough but had not used a silicon based polish but the big problem is when it jammed pressure dropped to zero straight away and the system will not pressurise even when using a good electric tyre pump. I have two questions:-
    1. can I push up the roof using brute strength ?
    2. Is there some sort of safety valve which may have operated ?

    I am in real trouble here as I have not been able to test out the vehicle since buying and my Daughter and Granddaughter are booked into a Devon campsite this Saturday!
    Regards

    Hi Chris.
    Don't panic! If the n/s front corner jammed I'm assuming it is the lowest part of the partly raised roof. You can push the the n/s corner up a few inches and the whole roof will drop down. The pressure will automatically be dumped if the roof jams to prevent the rams from punching a hole in the roof. If you find the relays that opperate the air valves( just follow the pipes) you'll find the reset button or buttons. Sometimes they reset automatically in which case with the roof reset in the down position the compressor will repressurise the tank.
    Enjoy Devon!

        It really is fabulous to have Ant available if you have a crisis.

        He's like the forum superhero! We should have competition to design him a superhero outfit! We also need a name - what about Vanman?

        Thanks for all the help you give, Ant. It really is appreciated!

          Well there's a spider man, so what about Ant Man with a big ant on the front of his costume.
