  1. Hi i have a static van with a combi boiler and radiators in each room fitted with trv’s (Apart from bathroom one). When putting heating on is it best to have internal doors open or closed for efficiency cheers jason
  2. Sorry I'm not understanding air temperature from incoming combustion air. Would someone be able to elaborate. Boiler is an e-combi Evo. Cheers
  3. How do I know if it has one of those sensors or are they part of the boiler
  4. Ha ha it's ok. I just think people on here can explain stuff so much better than a manual. That and the fact I don't understand the manual lol
  5. Tried that and it tells me the auto function will auto adjust boiler due to outside conditions and heating system set up. That tells me nothing of the best way to use it. It's amazing the lack of info a manual tells you lol Jason
  6. I have an ariston boiler in my static caravan with no thermostat and trv valves on radiators apart from bathroom. The boiler has an auto function and comfort function. How do these work. Should I use them or is just Normal functions better. Water is set to 60 and heating to 70 Cheers
  7. Hi Sorry for late reply. Thanks for all your advice. The central heating system was not drained down as it has antifreeze in it. Could I ask also what the most efficient use of the combi heating is. I have it set to 70 and there are trv's on all radiators except bathroom one but there is no room thermostat in the van. Is it better to turn it off and on as needed or just let trv's do their job and leave it on. Hope that makes sense
  8. hi all i drained down my static van at the end of last season successfully for the first time and i am returning to the van in three weeks time. my question/concern is when i return to the van and reattach my shower and close all the taps and drain down taps under van and boiler do i need to do anything regarding the combi boiler or do i just run the taps to get the water flowing through again. should i leave it switched off also until i am happy the water is coming through the taps ok. i think the answer to this is going to be yes but i just dont want to miss a vital thing that may damage the boiler. thanks jason
  9. Thanks for the replies. They've been very helpful Cheers
  10. Ah thanks for that. I thought the ground would be colder. You live and learn. Thanks again.
  11. Good afternoon I have just had a new stop cock installed underneath my static caravan (original was awkward to get to). It's all fine and everything but the pipe is mainly lying on the ground. It's all lagged but should I try to raise it off the ground somehow
  12. hi the stopcock for my static caravan is in an awkward place to get to. im fine with it for turning off the water and the end of the season and turning it back on at the beginning of the next one but i am going to fit an secondary one in a much more accessible place to turn water on and off whenever we leave van throughout season (especially November and December). i have attached a picture of a one i am looking at. would it be suitable for underneath a static caravan. thanks jason stopcock.docx
  13. Hi all I'm going to lag pipes under my static. I have noticed pipes that have a silver tape over the lagging. Does this give extra insulation and if so what sort of tape is it. Cheers Jason
  14. Thanks for all your replies. The reason I am looking at it is because when van was pitched the stopcock is located right under van which means to turn it off you have to crawl underneath. I am going to fit another one in an easy accessibility place but wondered if these would suffice. After all your help and replies I think I will cross it off my list
