Help! We are currently set up at a campsite with the pop top up and the control panel button has failed. Will not scroll through menu etc. So just wondering how on earth we put the roof down to drive away tomorrow? Any advice please?

Its in the manual how to get it down manually but involves taking the panel out I believe, no doubt someone better informed may be able to help with more detail or a reset for the panel

Have you tried pushing and turning the button ? It is probaly broken inside ...most times caused by hitting against it with head or shoulder when moving from the front seat to the rear.

Thanks for the help so far, if I ordered the replacement button from the club does anyone know if they give the option of a Saturday delivery? Then I'll have the stress of trying to fit it ......

If the switch is broken can you turn the fitting with a pair of plyers

They offer Express Delivery, within 2 days. Best to phone them as it’s a small item.
If you go on the Shop site they have an Online Web chat facility.

There's a couple of guides in the 'Resources' section, in grey grey menu above, I've linked one here -
