Agree with Woof once leaf guards are in place and the the flat ends of all 4 drains have been cut off (3 on later models) an annual check is all you need. Or check them during the routine service.

Life is too short to check them every week

Default Cigarette Lighter Cover

Is it possible to remove the cover on the lighter cover. I want to swap my light oak to walnut and I know I can remove the other covers.

The whole unit pulls out once the two wires on the rear are disconnected,be careful though,the springs are easy to lose!

I'm a newbie, if your one too then you need to check yours !

Having read through a few of these very helpful threads I checked my drains today, well 2 of them.

Outside one was running fine, Inside one was blocked with 3 pints of dirty mulch & water. Having no tool I found an old tap with a flexi Hose still attached and hey presto or 30 painful minutes later whoosh one empty chamber.

Gave the Pollen filter a clean & service while in there too. (the wife has the hair dryer optional extra which comes in handy there)

Thank you.

Default plenums

Thanks for the useful info. Have just checked mine, being a first time owner. Chamber was dry but with some dry leaves. Used the top section of an old fishing pole, nice and flexible. I was surprised at the amount of gunk that came out.
Thanks again.

Hi Sean.
Do the spyhole mod it makes it easier to check a lot of members will get caught out with these down pours after it being a dry September and the plenums are full of dust and small leaf particles which mixed with rain become sludge

Many thanks
