  1. I have a bessacarr 2010 caravan with an on board water tank that is also possible to bypass and use just the external pump (see second pic) With the tank bypassed and using external truma pump, the pump fails to turn off when taps are off (all ok if using the on board tank - pump switches off when taps are off). No air in the system and not got any leaks (water is not being pumped from the aqua roll even though it is running). Wiring schematic suggests a pressure switch; online searches suggest altering pressure switch but I can't find it. What I can find looks nothing like
  2. Hello there Just finished our first week away in our new van, suffice to say there's a few things to "get the hang of" but was a great time, definitely hooked. Anyway - had one issue we couldn't solve and dealer was disconcertingly vague ( although maybe I didn't explain myself very well.) We have recently bought a 2013 sterckeman alize 370 ce. It has a truma therme TT2 fitted, the white one - I think it's about 300 watts. We are having some trouble with it. The unit only functions on hook up as no gas vent has been fitted so it should be straight forward but we are experiencing s
  3. Our first trip in our brand new caravan fitted with Truma Ultraflow combi boiler. During last night the caravan flooded. The problem is that when we turn the water pump on water is spurting out of the Smart Switch. Any ideas why this would suddenly happen? Was working fine yest afternoon and evening.

  4. Hi guys, I'm wondering if anyone has experience with removing the heater? I want too remove mine (it doesn't work anyways) and put in a small LED fire. Any advice is welcome!
  5. Hi All, My van is fitted with a Trumastore Rapid with model numbers BN10 & BN103 (pre-2006 model). In the time I've had the van (around 5 years) I've had intermittent problems with starting the water heater when running on gas but always managed to get it started and keep it running, not so this time. The heater will start as soon as the dial is turned to the on position and I can hear, smell and feel the heat from the external burner flue, within about 10 seconds it sounds like the electric sparker clicking rapidly as though attempting to light the gas and after another 10 secon
  6. Truma Ultrastore Water Heater US 103 850 watt Part No: 70020-00270 Like a lot of fellow Truma Ultrastore users on this forum, mine works fine on gas but trips the van RCD on 240v. I removed the Element and got the following readings.... Neutral to Live - 64 ohms Earth to Neutral - 0 ohms Earth to Live - 0 ohms While it was out I connected the element to a plug in my shed which immediately tripped the house RCD. I tried again, but this time I did not connect the earth and HEY PRESTO! the element got hot! Thinking the element had an earth fault, I ordered a replacement. Afte
  7. I have just fitted a Truma iNet and Truma LevelControl device and thought others may be interested to hear what it does and how it was fitted. I searched to try to find out what the iNet actually does before buying but details are scant, even from Truma themselves! With the announcement of the Truma LevelControl (which monitors your gas bottle - see below) Truma has an offer of the iNet control box and LevelControl for £275 for the two until 30th December; the iNet box on its own is currently retailing for somewhere around £430. I contracted three dealers asking about the £275 offer
  8. Hi all. After reading many posts about the upgrade of OEM truma water pump to a whale pump, I decided to get the whale pump. Overall it seems far superior to the original but. ...... i found that the van was suffering a lot of air in the water system. After much crawling around I found that the coupling point was leaking. I contacted whale and they advised all was ok as far as they were concerned. Has anyone else experienced this problem, and how did they resolve it TIA
  9. Hello, I have an issue with the Truma Ultrastore Rapid 10 litre electric/gas water heater fitted to our Swift Sandymere. When using the electrical heating element of the water heater when it is supplied with water using an Aquaroll and external electric pump, we normally leave the heating element switched on overnight so that we have hot water to use first thing in the morning. During our last trip away the hot water spluttered when the tap was first opened in the morning as if some of the water had been lost overnight from the water heaters tank. By the third day the hot water stopped work
  10. Hi, My Truma Ultrastore works on gas not on electric. Man who did service suggests could be the electric rocker switch Hi, Off, Low. I have tested but am unsure of the result and am hoping someone out there will be able to tell me if I need a new switch or not (expensive £50 if not needed). Taking out the switch and testing the circuits from the connecting lead to the switch I got this. .. Lead 1 common Rocker low Rocker off Rocker High Lead 1 to lead 2 Yes No Yes Lead 1 to lead 3 No No
  11. As they say a picture paints a thousand words, so here are some pictures of me fitting a Whale non return valve into the water pipe. It seems to work better than the standard type. The first shows the pipe off and the valve, The second shows the valve before its fitted into the pipe, with a bit of silicon grease in the pump pipe and it pushes in easily. The next shows the valve in the pipe Then refit the electrics and nip up the clip (assuming the pictures are in order) Also a picture of one in my spare pump
  12. Have thought for a while that we don't seem to get much hot water from the ultrastore, so did a test. Using a 1L jug, measured how much hot water we were getting. After 2l litres the water is only warm and then goes cold by about 3-4 litres. The water starts boiling hot, scalding in fact, so know heater is working. Have it running in electric only (High setting). Have tried with tap on full, and about half flow, still same amount of hot water. As this is meant to hold 10 litres, I would expect the "HOT" water to last longer. Anyone come across this? Cant be air block as
  13. Hello - I'm a bit new to caravaning but well into my golden years ;-) so don't have much of a clue (though I have lived on boats for a few years so have a little inside info) when it comes to the technical side of caravans. I have an Abbey Spectrum 2005 (residential) and I'm having trouble understanding the water system and heating systems due to the fact that there's no manual. Mainly though, its the water and specifically the hot water, at the moment where there's a problem. Its an external pump and butt system. Can someone please describe how it works to begin with so I can unders
  14. We have just ordered a Bailey Unicorn S4 Barcelona and are considering having a Truma air-conditioning unit fitted. There are two units suitable. Eco or Comfort the eco is a lower capacity cooling but takes only 2. 5A the Comfort is higher capacity but uses 4. 5A and does provide heating as well. We don't go to south of France etc but are due to go to Italy. Any advice or experience of either?? Thanks in anticipation, Dave
  15. Afternoon folks, I have noticed since our trip a few weeks ago the panel that hides the blown air vent has detached. (See attached) My question is how do you remove the plastic strip that runs down the side so I can add more screws? I don’t want to force it and damage it. Thanks in advance. Chris.
  16. Hello all, I have a Truma TE mover on my twin axle Lunar Lexon EW. It was on the van when I bought it. The problem is that it seems to have real difficulty in actually getting the van moving. Very often the actuator thingy that presses onto the tyres just spins against the tyre and does not move the tyre. Is this a common problem and any ideas how I might improve things? Cheers!
  17. Yes, that old chestnut again. Out at the weekend, brand new 6kg lite, was fine for the first 2 days and then the gas pressure at the hob dropped off to the point of unuseable. Water and fridge stayed on ok, but as they were at operating temps, maybe they didn't need much to keep them there. When packing up, we turned the water and fridge off and tried the hob again, no change. However, after being home for a few hours and justr prior to posting this I tested the hob again. Same bottle, etc, and now the flames are back to normal. Having a read about it seems 'likely' that we ha
  18. Last weekend was the first time we used the Truma blown air in our Lexon, while solely on leisure battery. A new 110ah battery purchased in July charged regularly after every trip. It died 6. 30am Sunday morning. Is this normal, does the Truma take more out of a battery?

    Diy Mover Service?

    Anyone got any tips on general care/maintenance of movers? I have a Truma Go2 mover and I will need to jack up my caravan soon, so I would like to know what parts of the mover I can check/lubricate and maintain myself in advance of any problems etc. Whilst this could get covered as part of a caravan service, I like to do basic checks and general care myself, in-between services. Thanks.
  20. I know an idiot that has had his Truma Ultrastore switched on electric while empty for a few days and now, when filled with water, will not heat up the water either with electric or gas. Is it possible to re-set it or do you think I need a new one? Further, I'm now away from home and don't have the instructions with me, When I try to heat the water with gas, I can hear the clunk of the gas turning on, followed by the clicking of the ignite, followed a few seconds later by another clunk and the red light comes on in the gas control knob. Does this mean that it is not working too?
  21. hi i have broken my truma compact water housing and need to replace it. i have got a new housing but need to remove the old one without damaging the paint. any tips on getting the housing off and removing the old mastick. also which mastick should i buy i guess normal silicone isnt right?
  22. We have just bought our first caravan. Bailey Senator California which is fitted with a Truma water heater. We have had it working on gas and electric but it seems to take a long time to heat the water. We are finding on the gas setting it takes about 30 minutes before the hot water comes through. Is this normal ? As novices we don't know so any advice would be appreciated.
  23. Hello, I have just purchased a 2010 Coachman 460/2 caravan and am having some problems with the water supply. This is our first caravan so we are novices regarding the systems. I have traced the fault to the Truma Surge Damper which I understand switches the submersible pump on/off when it sees a drop in pressure from an open tap. As I understand it the circuit should be open until the system is pressurised, but the device is not supplying 12v to the pump at all. Checks so far 1. Pump is fine 2. 12v Supply to the device is fine 3. Micro adjustment screw turned in both directions If I am
  24. Hi folks, I have a 2002 Bailey moselle with the standard Truma Gas/Electric heater fitted. It works fine on Gas but the Electric side has given up on all settings. The 10A fuse is good, the green light stays on, the thermostat clicks in and out and the small on/off switch operates the relay in the PCB, I'm thinking it is the element. How easy/ difficult is it to replace please?
  25. Hi all. Finally getting down to stopping the Truma 3002 in my 2007 Swift Challenger 540 from endlessly shedding its front facia. The big problem is securing it to the floor. I assumed the bodged job with only two self tappers not securing it to the floor was because the "fitter" could not be bothered bolting it down. On inspection of the underside of the floor the heater has never been bolted through the hollow floor. Surely securing the heater with self tappers through the inside floor ply skin is not going to hold the heater in place?
