You have not told us where the plate was.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

It was on the offside side of the van on the axle mount. Would have been easy to find had the van not been up against a wall. I've had to move the van away from the wall to read the plate.

I used Shell Retinax LX on my 2009 Rapido as per this instruction. Only my opinion but I think any equivalent grease will be suitable. [I know that it has been superceded by a Gadus grease].

I've got some Gadus Ray but the handbook says to use Stabutherm grease on my BTR axle (see attached pic). I need to find an equivalent to stabutherm. I don't want to use/mix the wrong type of grease.
The 'therm' bit of the name suggests it's a high temp grease. I'd feel happier if someone could suggest a definite comparable grease.

Give the service department a ring at your nearest dealer for your MH (or indeed the garage you use for any work). I'm sure they would oblige...

Which ever way you look at it, we are MUCH BETTER OFF in the EU than outside!

Or even an al-ko service centre such as essanjay in Poole. Make sure they service MH's and not just caravans
