Hi to everyone,
Hoping I can prevail upon the collective wisdom on the forum.
Last time we used the van the heater ceased to heat on the lelectricity option but continued to work if used on gas.
Checked the spur which is housed in the wardrobe of 2002 Lunar Sloar Eclipse and the light was out.
Bought some standard domestic fuses as these looked the same size as the fuse cover on the spur.
On removing the fuse from the spur discovered it was 10 amp - domestic pack only had 3, 5, and 13 amp fuses.
Erred on the side of caution and fitted a 5 amp fuse.
Connected the van to mains at home and the Truma worked on electricity inituially and then went off.
Checked the spur this weekend and the fuse has melted the holder within the spur.
This raises a number of questions:
1. Where can I get a replacement spur?
2. Is the fault likely to be the spur or is there anything within the heater that may have caused the short?
3. I don't intend to carry out the repair myself - should I leave it to the guy who normally services the van or contact Truma?
Sorry to ask so many questions but this has left me perplexed as I would have expected the fuse to blow rather tan melt the surround?
Thanks in anticipation
