  1. Hi New to caravans as mother in law owns one which we've started using. I can't get cooker to ignite in caravan but it has previously. Gas gauge says there's gas in the cylinder. Gas goes through pipe into the attached picture (I think it's called a regulator). If I turn gas on and undo other end of regulator no gas comes out other end. Does it have a reset button or does it need to be replaced? Is it cheap to repair? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance Jon
  2. Hello All! I'm pretty new to all this (and perhaps I have bitten off more than I can chew!) But I am at the moment, half way through building my own tiny house on a trailer! There isn't that much information out there in the tiny house world for the uk on these sort of specifics and I was really hoping that this community could help me! (I'm sorry I'm not a caravan!) I am planning on living in the tiny house pretty much full time once I have a spot I feel I can settle, but I would like to be as sustainable and resourceful as possible with how i consume water and energ
  3. Can anyone give me their direct experience of filling refillable gas cylinders (Gaslow, Safefill etc..) whilst abroad, without having a dedicated fixed filling point. i.e. taking the cylinders out of a caravan or motorhome to get them filled. I have read of users being able to do this, but also some being refused in France and in Spain. If you do this, what has been your experience? I am particularly interested in other countries like Italy, Germany, Croatia and the Scandanavian countries. Thanks Simon
  4. 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
  5. We have a unicorn 3 with the large fridge the problem that I am trying to solve is when on gas the fridge goes out. Must be from wind but it can happen with or without the awning and when it does not seem windy. Any suggestions as to a cure?
  6. 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
  7. We have just bought a 2012 Bailey Olympus 460/2 caravan. We are new to caravanning and are still working our way through all the appliances, the handbook, etc. We haven't taken the van out as yet. I'm wondering where the gas heater is located. Is it in the hot water tank itself? Also, in the handbook, it says to remove the outside cowl cover when using gas to heat the water. Am I right in thinking that this cowl only needs to be removed when the gas heater is use, but not when other gas appliances are in use, such as the cooker, hob or heater? Many thanks.
  8. Hi my gas heating wont work i dont no what am doin rong? Can you help what is the cowl cover?
  9. Hi, I own a CaraOne 550 QDK and I have currently a propane bottle in the caravan. However, we are going into a site with a gas connection. However, I am wondering where can I connect the rv site gas to the caravan. I assume it's not to the same regulator I connect the bottle to as it would require the caravan frunk (front trunk?) to remain unlocked (I presume). I can't find any videos online about this so I am just looking for any comments on how to do this before going on holidays and getting stuck once I get there.
  10. Electrolux 212, works well on mains but not so good on gas. It lights easily but the flame is tiny (much smaller than I have seen before). The fridge takes nearly two days to get to temperature on gas and is then erratic at holding the temperature. Do I need o clean gas jets or something? Thank you.
  11. I'm in my second year of caravanning and have just exchanged my 6Kg Calor bottle for a fresh one. Having weighed the cylinder when I first received it and subsequently after each trip I reckon there was 0. 5Kg left. I didn't want to run out half way through cooking a meal on my up next 2 week trip. Yes, I could have purchased a second bottle but weight is an issue. My question is, can I expect to have 6Kg of usable gas in my new bottle or does the pressure drop when the cylinder is near empty? Perhaps the refills are slightly over to compensate or maybe not. Apolo
  12. Hi, Looking for some help with switching our water heater from gas to electric (leisure battery) as we are not sure how to do it. Is there a switch to do this? We have a Coachman Amara 500/5 2000. We have no hot water currently. Any suggestions appreciated.
  13. Hi, I'm in the process of getting the caravan ship shape for summer and thought I would give the fridge a once over. It's an old Electrolux RM212 & runs fine on hook up, but I have never been able to get it going on gas. I followed a tutorial to clean out the jet / burner / flue and reinstalled the fridge, gave it a go and hey presto - it worked! Whilst turning it off and packing up my tools, I could smell a faint whiff of gas so I pulled the fridge back out of its hole, got a spray bottle of soapy water, found the leak and got it sorted - all good, apart from the
  14. Hi I'm totally new to all this caravan stuff and dealing with an old caravan so please bear with me. I am trying to get the gas working for use with the cooker only. I have switched from Butane to Propane due to the cold weather, the gas is coming through on the cooker but it's very weak. Do I need to change the regulator for Propane? It has a mounted 30 mbar regulator already, new canister and hose. Trying to work out the problem, any advice would be appreciated! Thanks, JP
  15. Can't seem to find a way to attach the pipe to this point - it's different to the one on our previous Sterling. Didn't want to force anything and risk break something. Anyone have experience of this type and can advise?
  16. I have searched and searched but cannot find John Wickersham's video of calculating the amount of gas left in a cylinder using the tare tag info. (Hope that makes some sense) Can anyone point me at it please?
  17. Sorry, but the more I trawl through, and try searches in the gas threads the more confused I am getting. There certainly seems to be some negative comments about Calor but having been away from caravanning for some time I am so out of date. Anyway, my 'van came with a 6kg red propane cylinder and I am planning to "hire" another cylinder and "buy" the gas within. Is that right? The reason, if I am off grid and the gas runs out, I would like the luxury of switching over to another and can afford the extra weight. So, how much should I expect to pay for another full 6kg cylinder o
  18. 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
  19. Went into my local engineering supplier yesterday to change 2 13kg propanes only to be told they don't have any in stock. I asked if this was due to the holidays but he said no Calor are restricting us to only 2 bottles at a time. Next delivery is Monday so I will be back on Monday but the fact they are limiting stock and offering cash back on empties does suggest that there is a country wide shortage of bottles. Ian
  20. We have a 2006 Sterling Europa 520 from new. It has been regularly serviced. Every now and again over past 5 year, gas has not got through to the oven/hob, then inexplicably starts working again. It works 95% of the time. It may be the microswitch in the hob lid, but there is no rhyme or reason why it should be. We always set up and pack away in the same way. Sometimes, it appears just moving the van sorts the problem. Now its has got to be an issue with me. I have changed the gas bottle and regulator, checked gas is getting to the manifold inside the van, which it is.
  21. Went away at Easter & all was well, however have come away this weekend & . ..! Both the heater & hot water will not stay on! The heater has the initial ignition butt when I come to turn on after 10 seconds it goes our, gas appears to be there. The hot water behaves them same. The fridge however is ok as is the hob & oven. Any suggestions would be a help.

    I didn't know that I wanted an up-swinging gas locker door until I saw this. The old one used to drip rain on my neck.

  23. My U3 Vigo fridge is really quite (not quiet) noisy when running on gas - it has a right roar from the burner which is annoying to say the least. Anyone else care to rehearse their experience - is this just a 'normal' sound due to the fact that the fridge is somewhat larger than I am used to
  24. Emptied one of my gas bottles on Saturday morning so visited the local caravan site to get a new calorlite, guess what? Calor do not distribute calorlites in Northern Ireland. The site were very good and have given me a loan of an ordinary 6kg, which we will use as we are not on EHU, to be returned on Tuesday. The site owner said he is frequently asked for them but Calor will not stock them. Ian
  25. Hello guys I have a 1969 baily caravan im restoring. Im nearly finished with the kitchen area and just cleaned the vintage B600 super calor gas oven, but for the life of me I cant remember or figure out how the lid fixes on. All the bolts and screws have been replaced with new ones and this is all i have left. Can anybody help? Many Thank Andy
