Draught cured in Fiat X250 Model
After reading the Auto Trail owners club magazine, I came across an article that I thought would be of interest to owners of the Fiat X250 Chassis.
There is a non-return air flap fitted into the Chassis on the passengers side. This is designed to pull air out of the cab but not let air in, hence the draught. (see photos)
You can seal the valve off by inserting a bung into the valve outlet or it can be taped. I have bought one of these bungs from the Fiat dealer for £3.80.
This valve can be found on the passenger side of your motorhome. Follow an imaginary line down from the rear edge of your fuel filler flap to the bottom of the body. You will find the valve on the inner face of the Chassis at this point (size about 3" x 4"). You just pull the whole valve out from the Chassis and put the bung in, which is a 2 minute job.
Now the wife is happy, no draughts!
