  1. The outer flue cover on our 18 year old Carver Cascade water heater works perfectly well, but is blotchy and rather discoloured - probably comes of simply being nearly 20 yr old plastic. I can live with this, but it would be pleasing to make it a bit less mottled. Other than swapping it, any thoughts on demottling such old plastic would be welcome, please. I looked online, but such replacements as were shown were around £40 and also unavailable, even if I fancied spending that much on it. (I wasn't sure if this was a cleaning of DIY issue - moderators, if you wish to relocate this, please feel free!)
  2. We have a Rapido caravan made in 2000, with a Carver "Cascade Rapide" water heater, presumably from the same year. I realise this is practically Roman History by now, but please, if anyone out there knows about these, I'd really welcome any advice! The only trips we've had so far have been on EHU, when it works perfectly, and thus haven't been using the gas side. It ignited straight away, and heated well last time I tried it, but that was some months ago. I hadn't realised you have to keep reminding these things to work even if you don't need them at the time! Now we'd like to use it again to go off-grid, and it's not playing. I have the book of words but it doesn't cover the display I'm getting. The control panel has three lights: green shows all's well and working. Yellow shows insufficient battery power. Red shows it hasn't ignited. There are various two-light options given in the troubleshooting section for displays, but nothing for all three at once. I'm getting all three! I've run the gas cooker, lit the gas in the fridge, made sure it's got water coming through to the hot tap, and the battery's charged fully. I've tried repeatedly, with the prescribed minutes between attempts. So - any comments, please? It's not a complete tragedy if it won't, we can kettle-heat washing water if need be, but it's nice and convenient to have things working. Thanks, Richard
  3. This is going to be a really newbie question, I am planning to be "off grid" ie without EHU and wanted to know when running the Carver Cascade on gas, would i leave it on all the time? Does it have a system to light the burner and extinguish it as and when needed or once lit does it just burn all the time? If i leave it on will it use a lot of gas? Sorry for the newbie questions
  4. The electric side of our Carver heater has packed in and apparently it's so elderly that parts can't be sourced any more. The gas still works but we'd like to get a portable electric heater so we don't have to rely on gas since we're usually on an electric pitch. What does everyone recommend as the best type of portable heater? Also, is there any sort you can get that is safe to leave on all night?
  5. Hello I have a bailey ranger 450/2 with a carver fanmaster, works OK for a bit then overheats, if the fan setting is on auto it will work fine until the van cones up to tempurture then the fan will click in to the low setting as it does but when it clicks back to full power to reheat the van the air is cold, its as if its on 2kw when on full an stays on 2kw when the fan slows down and not going to 1kw mode, perhaps that's why its over heating ? Has anyone experienced this before ? Any help appreciated
  6. HI, Not sure if anyone can help here, especially Gary as I am 4hr drive from nottingham. I have a 16 year old Eldis Superstorm fitted with a Carver Fanmaster 4000 heater. I have tested the heater on Gas and it seems to run fine although a bit noisy. as for the 240v electric heating. this does not get hot at all and the blown air from the ducting is just COLD. I have read several of the blogs posted on this and other areas of the web, and would like to be able to give the unit a good clean, being competent engineer. Can you tell me how i can get to the innards of the fan unit on the back of the heater. Having no formal diagrams of the unit and its component parts I am unable to see how this comes apart. Can anyone help with suggestions as i have removed the complete unit mounting screw but am still unable reach a stage where i can clean the fan and gain access to test the heater electrical elements. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks in advance. Regards Simon of Southampton
  7. Just a quick post. My Carver 1800 heater wasn't burning properly, I called my caravan service engineer to look at it. (I won't name him). He said there was a lot wrong with it and as it was old, he wasn't sure if he could get the parts, May as well scrap the van e. t. c. I contacted Gary at ARC SYSTEMS. I took the whole heater to him and within an hour he had stripped it down, Taken the cobwebs out of the burner, (despite me trying to blow down it, which made it harder for him), reassembled and tested it. . That was all that was wrong. Not expensive and I will certainly use him again. THANK YOU Gary. MORAL: Make sure you watch carefully when your engineer services your appliances P. S Gary told me he has a problem with his E-Mail system which means he can't read them at the moment but he is working on it

    Hi All Just getting to know my new van and I have a question regarding the heater! It would appear to have a fault on the ignition of the gas in so much as the igniter spark noise continues long after the gas is lit and heating up! Anyone any ideas what to check please or do I need a part??? Thanks in advance for your help Paul
  9. Hi peeps, I've just purchased my first caravan and am just trying to get everything working. When I got to the water I've just filled a big bucket up and put the pump in it. As it's my first caravan and no one to ask I'm hoping one of you can assist me in getting it fixed. When I turn the tap on the pump starts which I'm thinking is good :-) ! however if I leave it running a little and go outside there is lots of water coming out from the vent bit. There is a little drain plug which I've fitted a new O ring but it actually seems to be coming from above this. Inside the van there are no signs of water and water does eventually come out of the tap. However, this doesn't feel warm at all. :-( Can anyone give me some pointers please? I'm quite handy with things so hopefully it's an easy fix. O. . I've added some photos below; Also, I've no idea what the two bottom switches do on the control panel. I'm assuming one if for the water heater and the other for the heater element. . however the heater element isn't working either?... I have no gas connected at the moment. The van is an old elddis 1999 if that helps. The control for the fan on the blown heater does work but the temperature slider doesnt seem to be making contact with anything. . I just feel a bit lost at the moment. Thanks Steve
  10. Hi Peeps. . Hopefully this will be fixable. I've just brought my first caravan (1999 Elddis ) and it's got a Carver fanmaster 4000a in it. I'm yet to connect up the gas but from what I understand this heater should work without it. At the moment it's just blowing cold air, I've checked that the main fuse for the element is on (red light) and the little slider is showing red but still no hot air. Also, I don't get any light dimming which I would expect from the extra load when you first flick it on. I've pulled the heater out as much as I dare as the shelf above isn't removable. From a google search some people say that I need to reset the element but I think on my version this button doesn't exist. I've taken a few photos which are below. . any help would be great. Thanks Steve
  11. When I went away last week my water heater wouldn't work. I took the cover of it (Carver) and when the switch was on, I could hear a clicking sound but the spark wasn't there. I lit the burner with a lighter and it came on during the time the clicking was heard, but when the clicking went off, the gas burner went off. My batteries were full and there was gas. I got it back today and the engineer came out to look at it and it works fine. I swear to god that I twiddled and jiggled every connector I could see and all the gas lines were fine but after trying 10 or more times over 3 days, it wouldn't spark or work, now the dam thing is fine. What could have gone wrong, we are all stumped. The engineer says if the solenoid was energising and clicking but no spark could be seen, he think that's a mystery
  12. I wonder if anybody can help me over a heater. I have e-mailed Gary at Arc Systems & await if he can help me. I Have a ABI Sprinter 390/2, 1999, which has had the Carver 2000A heater removed, this is highlighted in yellow marker the handbook so I assume its the correct one. I have managed to find one locally but have the following problems: 1/ how do I know the difference between a 2000A & a 2000P? 2/ what is the difference between a "right hand installation build" & a "left or right hand installation build"? Jim
  13. Hi Guys I really need some help, we have just had a lovely week in our van down in Cornwall and have moved up to Brean for the second week and all hell has broke loose, not only did we loose the keys three hours after arriving but now the electrics keep tripping out. We got here set up okay, plugged everything in and we went out for food, came back later (in the dark) only to have to break in through the back window after hubby lost the keys somewhere, Anyway we have managed to get a new door lock, from the lovely people at Highbridge Caravans, Highbridge (who also have a master key for the loo compartment so can get the barrel out to cut us a new key for that one), which just leaves us the electrical box to drill out when we get home and replace so at least we are lockable. The problem is the electrics keep tripping out and will not stay on and the water heater is showing green but keeps clicking, I am guessing the carver cascade mk 2 water heater is causing the trip out but am unsure why, it was fine when we left Newquay yesterday morning as I had a shower, but not when we got here. We did go through torrential rain. Any help would be appreciated, please
  14. Hi All, I'm hoping that someone can help me quickly get to the root of a problem I've found since getting the trusty old girl ready for our first holiday of the year next week. The Van: Bessacarr Cameo 420 SL- 92/93 Vintage The Problem: The water heater started leaking badly when I pressurised the system yesterday. On closer inspection, it had been the subject of one of the previous owners' now infamous "repairs". The plastic spigot/inlet at the bottom of the unit had obviously leaked at the joint in the past, and someone had e-poxyed it, finishing the job nicely with several winds of PVC insulating tape- that well-known waterproofer!!! So after unwinding the lot, and inspecting the leak, I knew I had to get the pipe of- with the slightest pull I've managed to bring the ******' spigot with it! It's sheered at the inlet in the casting of the heater itself. After a few choice words, I've now blocked the pipe off so we'll have no hot water on the forthcoming trip. The big question is; is it terminal or will it be a whole new heater? I can't see just yet how that spigot attached into the main unit- wondered if it might be internally threaded. Can anyone enlighten me? Definitely a whole unit-out job as well I should think. I've attached a few photos of the various stages of the nightmare, for reference! Still Attached, Leaking Broken Off! What's left of the spigot/inlet Any tips/advice very welcome indeed!! Cheers Dave
  15. Have decided to return to caravanning & have just bought an excellent later model (96) of the 93 Compass Lynx 340/2 we used to have. This one has had the original spec Carver 1800SC gas fire removed & a free standing 240v oil filled radiator put in its place. I can only imagine that a previous owner got the willies on hearing about an unfortunate but freak death caused by Co2 poisoning from an earlier incarnation of the 1800 & had it removed. I have just bought a used 1800SC & was hoping to install it ASAP myself. I'm not a complete novice as I'm a joiner & even used to be CORGI registered. Having just unwrapped the fire & inspected it I felt there might be one or two problems so phoned the Caravan Dismantler I bought it from who said that although the fire was tested & found working before it was removed from the caravan, he'd give me a full refund inc P&P if I wanted to return it. You can't say fairer than that. Now I come to think of it though. ............ I bet he didn't check the flame failure device was working. These are the "problems":- - The peizo igniter doesn't click. I am assuming right, aren't I? That the ignition is just like the earlier Carver 1800, being a peizo one that makes a loud click when you turn the control knob anti-clockwise & press down? The supplier said that it needs a 12volt connection to make it work but. ......... the earlier model used a peizo & didn't have any 12 volt connection I was ever aware of &, in any event, peizo's just don't need power. .... they create it when struck. Even if I'm right, then what's the cable for? - The gas knob just goes round & round in the non-depressed mode. Is this normal? - The main gas valve that's bolted to the bottom of the control assembly & directly operated by the in-line control rod is held onto it's oval mounting flange with two set-screws. These screws are not tight enough & the gas valve is wobbling about on its mounting. Although this probably does not compromise the safe functionality of the gas valve, I hardly think it's OK to leave it like that but it looks like attempting to try & rectify it could involve opening a potential can of worms what with rusted on bits & bobs & Truma reputedly being not very obliging with bits for Carver models. Maybe I should send it back but. ........ these 1800SC's are hard to find. Will another model fit without making irreversible & aggravating adaptations to the caravan. I always think that "as original" is always best. John There's a lovely, helpful & very knowledgeable chap called Gary of Arc Systems comes on here. .......... have I caused enough ripples in his pond to provoke an answer? John
  16. We have a lunar clubman 475/2 fitted with a carver cascade 2 water heater it works fine on electric but when we try the gas there is nothing the green light is on all the time indicating that it's working but cannot hear anything or get any hot water this is only on the gas side the electric side is working perfect
  17. Hey Guys, I was sitting watching TV - Cascade 2 water heater was on, suddenly heard a Boom and then the pump started going mental! Went outside to see what was happening and saw water just pumping out of the whole of the bottom of the vent panel. .. I'm guessing its end of life but does anyone know what I need to look at on it? I'm happy to remove it etc, if needed? Thank You
  18. Hey Guys, I live in my van full time, and I was just wondering - I have a carver cascade 2 water heater installed, which is obviously gas. At the moment, I dont like to waste expensive calor gas so I turn on the hot water 30 mins before I want it, and turn it off after I have finished however I am wondering if this is the best option. If I switch on and leave it on, then how much will the usage of gas increase? Obviously once the water is hot the gas shuts off, then on to warm etc etc etc, or should I continue to switch on and off. I've already broken the sliding switch and had to repair it by refixing the switch on to the actual control panel so I am wondering if switching it on and off at least 2 times a day, every day will increase the amount of wear on the boiler / switch system. So based on that, I'm not sure what to do - use more gas but less wear and tear - or risk the boiler and switch failing but save gas. ..? What would you do?
