Will I fit in the Hero Camper
Most people will fit comfortable in Hero Camper. You'll find the measurements below. For more information on the measurements, weight and options, feel free to download our brochure.
After the first kilometers
After using your Hero Camper for approx. 100 kilometers we recommend that the wheel bolts are tightened and retighten if necessary. The tightening torque is 100 Nm.
After approx. 500 kilometers (and no later than after 6 months) you should check the wheel bearings and slack in the breaks (have a service center inspect it if necessary). Sliding surfaces at the paved interior, as well as grease, control hinges and brackets should be checked after 5000 kilometers at the latest. If the above mileages are not reached, the camper should be checked after a maximum of 1 year and after that, at least once per year. We also recommend that your Camper is checked and controlled for malfunction at a service center at least once a year.
Cleaning your Hero Camper
We advise that your Camper is cleaned for pollutions such as salt, drizzle, grease and chemicals on a regular basis. This is usually done by ordinary washing and cleaning with auto-shampoo. Regular polishing of your Hero Camper is also recommended. This is done with paint /gelcoat sealer, and prolongs the shine and color on the surface - while making cleaning significantly easier. We recommend CPP (Clean-Polish-Protection)
Connecting your Hero Camper
The connection to your camper must be opened and attached to the dragon ball with a push downwards. It will be closed and secured automatically. Don't forget to check the connection each time you mount your camper - both visually and by lifting the dragon ball, to make sure that the clutch is in the correct position and is secured.
The safety wire is mounted on the pulling vehicle, so your Hero Camper also by ekstreme curve driving has enough freedom without the stand break being activated.
The lights on your Camper
The light plug must be connected to the power socket on the pulling vehicle. The cable must be placed so that the camper does not tighten the cable to much - even in extreme curve angles. Don't forget to check that the lights on your Camper is connected correctly and working before driving.
Disconnecting your Hero Camper
Release the light plug from the pulling vehicle and place it in the socket holder. Release the safety wire from the pulling vehicle. Pull up the clutch handle, push forward and lift the clutch of the dragon ball. You can use the support wheel at the same time.
Make sure you use the correct tire pressure
Tire pressure for your Hero Traveller is 195/60 R15 = 3,0 bar (44 PSI) - and tire pressure for your Hero Ranger 265/65 R17 = 3,5 bar (50 PSI)
