Introduction

Thank you for choosing this caravan mover. This has been produced according to very high standards and has undergone careful quality control procedures. Simply by using the remote control you can move your caravan effortlessly into any position required within operating guidelines. 

Before proceeding with installation and starting to use the mover, please read this manual very carefully and be aware of all the safety instructions! The owner of the caravan will always be responsible for correct use. Keep this manual inside your caravan for future reference.

This User Manual covers three models of Caravan Mover: Model No. QUATTRO600 (Diamond), Model No. QUATTRO500 (Rhodium) and Model No. EGO500 (Platinum); any installation or operational differences between the three models are detailed where appropriate. 

The caravan movers consists of two 12V motor-powered rollers, a 12V electronic control box and a remote control. To function, the motor-powered rollers must be engaged against the tyres of your caravan. The supplied cross actuation device (QUATTRO500 ONLY) enables you to engage both rollers at the same time from one side of your caravan. Once this is done, the mover is ready for operation. The remote control will allow you to move your caravan in any direction.

The chassis clamps provided are suitable for fitment onto most standard caravan chassis that have an L-shape or U-shape profile. Please refer to Fig.11 & Fig.12 for reference on dimensions and clearances BEFORE you proceed any further with installation. If your chassis has different dimensions to those shown in Fig.12, then various chassis clamp adapters are available to suit the majority of UK and Continental caravans; please refer to the section entitled ‘Optional Fitting Adapters’.

Installation Safety Guidelines

Warning icon Read this User Manual carefully before installation and use. Failure to comply with these rules could result in serious injury or damage to property.

Before starting installation of the caravan mover:

DO check that the caravan is disconnected from the battery supply and the mains electrical supply.

DO only use adapters and accessories that are supplied or recommended by the manufacturer.

DO check that the tyres are not over worn (fitting to new or nearly new tyres is the best option).

DO make sure that the tyre-pressures are correct to the manufacturer’s recommendation. 

DO make sure the chassis is in good condition without any damage and is free from rust, dirt etc.

DO stop work immediately if you are in doubt about the assembly or any procedures and consult one of our engineers 

DO locate the battery isolation switch to be accessible at all times when parking and moving the caravan.

DO NOT remove, change or alter any parts of the chassis, axle, suspension or brake mechanism.

DO NOT operate the unit if you are under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication that could impair your ability to use the equipment safely.

Warning icon These instructions are for general guidance. Installation procedures may vary depending on caravan type.

Warning icon Use appropriate support! Working under a vehicle without appropriate support is extremely dangerous. If you are fitting the mover system yourself, it is advisable that the installation is conducted by two people, as the mover will need to be raised up to the bottom of the caravan’s chassis before the clamps can be installed.

Warning icon Remember to complete the product registration form with the serial numbers of each motor assembly prior to fitment (see details within the Guarantee section of this manual).

Warning icon If with your particular model of mover the motors are not pre-assembled onto the framework, please follow assembly manual supplied in the motor packaging. 

Place the caravan on a hard, level surface. The use of a lifting ramp or an assembly pit is ideal for access and personal safety. 

Clean the area of your chassis where you need to mount all components to ensure a good fitting.

Unpack all the components and check for the presence of all parts (see Package Contents List). 

Make sure the caravan is prepared for installation. Check before installation that important areas, such as drains/spare tyre etc. do not cause any obstruction to the function of the mover.

Ensure both rollers are in the DISENGAGED position (Fig.5 or Fig.7), as the unit will not fit correctly otherwise.

 


Installation - Classic Clamping System (Fig.10.1)

Loosely assemble motor framework side (1), motor framework side (2) and main cross bar (3) (see Fig.1). The nuts (Fig.1B) on the cross bar (3) must be no more than finger-tight at this stage.

Place the assembly (Fig.1) loosely under the caravan. In principle, the unit should be fitted in front of the caravan road wheels, but if fitting in this position is not possible, it is permissible to fit it to the rear of the wheels by rotating the whole assembly by 180° degrees.

Loosely fit the two clamping assemblies to the chassis (see Fig.10) and attach using the bolts, nuts and washers (16,17,18) provided in the installation kit. Nuts must be no more than finger-tight. 

Quattro Rhodium Mover with Manual Engagement:

Assemble the parts of the cross actuation bar (4 & 5) and connect them to the motor units (1 & 2) with the nylock nut and bolt (in bag of bolts) onto the cross actuation bar-connectors (see Fig.1A). Nuts must be no more than finger-tight at this stage.

Make sure that the Main Cross Bar (3) and the Cross Actuation Centre Bar (4) are positioned in the middle of the caravan/mover (the centre of the bar is marked).

With the main assembly loosely fitted onto the chassis, slide the whole assembly along the chassis until the rollers (Fig.2A or Fig.4A) are 20mm away from the surface of the centre of each tyre (Fig.5 or Fig.7). Two 20mm spacers (30) are provided. 

Warning icon It is vitally important that each roller is at exactly the same distance away from the tyre. The whole assembly must be parallel to the caravan/trailer axle.

Ideally, align the roller(s) with the centre of each tyre, if clearances permit. Quattro Platinum: When positioning, always ensure there is at least 10mm of clearance between the gearbox and the tyre (Fig 9). Quattro Diamond/Rhodium: If the roller widths exceed that of the tyre, ensure that the outer roller is aligned with the outer wall of the tyre. Overhang on the inside wall of the tyre is acceptable on thinner tyres, and will not affect function or grip. If there is an obstruction preventing the rollers from being mounted centrally, then moving the mover inboard to suit is acceptable as long as at least one roller makes full contact on the tyre.

Fully tighten the four nylock nuts (17) on both clamping assemblies (Fig.10A) to a torque setting of 40 ft lbs/55Nm, then the four bolts (Fig.1B) on the Main Cross Bar (3) and the four bolts (Fig.1C) on Cross Actuation assembly (4 & 5) to a torque setting of 9ft lbs/12Nm. Re-check the distance of 20mm from the rollers to the tyres and if necessary, loosen the bolts and re-adjust the position of the assembly. Once satisfied with the position of the assembly, fit and tighten the Chassis Stop Nuts & Bolts (7) , one pair in each of the Upper Chassis Clamp Plates (see Fig.10). Tighten to a torque setting of 40 ft lbs/55Nm. The Stop Bolts grip the lip of the chassis and help prevent the mover from sliding along the chassis. The main mechanical components have now been installed.

 


Installation - Quick-fit Shark Clamp System (Fig.10.2)

Video icon Watch our video: Shark Clamp fitting system 

Loosely assemble the main cross bar (3) inside motor framework side (1) and motor framework side (2) (see Fig.1). The nuts/bolts (Fig.1B) on motor framework (1&2), must be no more than finger-tight at this stage.

Place the assembly (Fig.1) loosely under the caravan. In principle, the unit should be fitted in front of the caravan road wheels, but if fitting in this position is not possible, it is permissible to fit it to the rear of the wheels by rotating the whole assembly by 180° degrees.

Typically the Shark Clamp will be pre-assembled onto the motorsides for ease of fitting, but if the clamps have been purchased separately or are not pre-assembled, they should be assembled onto the framework as shown in (Fig.15). 

Before attempting to install the mover onto your caravan chassis ensure that the pinch bolts (Fig.10.2B) are removed and put safely to the side.

In turn, open each jaw to its widest position (loosen nuts if required) and hang the motorside framework onto the chassis. If the caravan chassis is a tall U profile, the nuts (Fig.10.2B) may need to be removed first to allow the jaws to be opened wide enough.

Loosen the crossbar nuts/bolts (Fig.1B) and adjust the lateral position of each motorside so that the rollers are central to the tyre, or as close to the centre as possible, ensuring 10mm of space is left between the tyre and gearbox for the Quattro Platinum (Fig.9). After adjusting ensure the clamps haven’t moved out of position by holding the framework motorside firmly, while reaching round and pushing the clamps outwards until the fastening bolts and chassis collide. Once happy with the overall width of the mover system, tighten crossbar nuts/bolts (Fig.1B) to 9ft lbs/12Nm to set the width.

Slide the whole assembly along the chassis until the rollers (Fig.2A or Fig.4A) are 20mm away from the surface of the centre each tyre (Fig.5 or Fig.7). Two 20mm spacers (30) are provided. Fully tighten the clamp bolts (Fig.10.2A) on both clamping assemblies to a torque setting of 40 ft lbs/55Nm. When tightening one clamp bolt, the other may loosen slightly so it may take several passes to get both bolts fully torqued on each clamp. A tip is to do all clamp bolts up until there is a strong resistance before torquing fully.

Insert pinch bolt (Fig.10.2B) and tighten to a torque setting of 18 ft lbs/25Nm, ensuring while doing this, that the retaining nut is at the highest position. Once the bolt is secure, tighten the retaining nut. Finally tighten the pivot bolt (Fig.10.2.C) to 9ft lbs/12Nm.

Operation and Maintenance

Warning icon It is possible to position the caravan’s hitch exactly over a stationery car’s tow ball using the mover. But please be very careful!

Warning icon Hitch the caravan in the normal way ready for towing.

Warning icon Release the rollers from the caravan’s tyres. You cannot tow the caravan with the Mover engaged! Make sure that both rollers are fully disengaged!

Warning icon Trying to drive away with the mover still engaged, will damage the mover, your caravan tyres and strain your tow vehicle!

To prevent the battery from becoming totally discharged during long periods of inactivity it must be disconnected and recharged before using again.

Please check regularly that the rollers of the drive units are free of any dirt, or debris that may have been picked up from the road. Any further maintenance is not required. 

Please check regularly the distance between the rollers and the tyres. In the neutral (fully disengaged) position this must be 20mm.

When your caravan is stored for an extended period of time (over winter for example) it is recommended to remove the leisure battery from the caravan. Make sure you keep it charged to ensure it is in good condition the next time you want to use it.

Once a year have your caravan mover maintained and visually inspected. This inspection must include all the bolt/nut connections, the cables and electrical connections and lubrication of movable parts/joints.

Warning icon In case of any failures or problems, please contact your Caravan Mover supplier.
