  1. hi we have turned up at our campsite. Hearing worked for 90 mins then turned offer menu says unable to communicate with space heater. We have done the following Removed fuse and then replaced Unplugged mains Pushed reset button still not working and it’s pretty cold any suggestions gratefully received thanks lesley
  2. Whilst owning our new van (Elddis Avante 586) for 5 months now I have only just diagnosed a fault I think it has had from day one. I have always suspected a problem with the Whale iVan control system but it is only recently we have been using the heating system where the fault was easy to diagnose. The problems we have had are: finding the water heater off, when it was previously on, and the space heater turning itself off for no apparent reason. The last couple of times we have used the van I have set a timer to turn on the space heater prior to us getting up. The heater would start
  3. Hi On a recent holiday trip with my Bailey Orion 530/6 and on the first night I went to put on my Whale blow air heater system to find it kept tripping the main MCB. On investigation by the supplier the unit was full of water. The supplier says all gaskets etc. .. where in tact and therefore its not a warranty replacement. My local dealer says it must have had a hose pipe up the flue due to the amount of water. I find this extremely hard to believe since it is stored securely on a Gold Secure site and the caravan had only not been off the site since the last time it was used it
  4. Hi everyone, Ive recently changed my Ultraflow triggergrip external water pump for the Whale equivelent and its so much better. However Im still troubled by clicking and/or whining from the pump, so Im wondering if the Whale WU7207 pressure switch needs changing or maintaining? The Ultraflow inlet housing seems to be uncracked, but I suspect the non return valve might be a little tired after 9 years. Ive adjusted the pressure switch according to the instructions, but it still needs fiddling with everytime i change caravan sites. The water flow is good, with only a little s
  5. Im away in Devon in my caravan and have concerns that my Truma Ultraflow external pump is often running on after the tap is turned off. It can run sweetly for a few days, then intermittently start to run on for short or long periods. The pump was stored coiled too tighly last winter and I susupect I may have kinked the pipe, especially as it has been bent a bit too much a few times when inserting into an aquaroll. Any help would be greatly appreciated for a relaxed holiday! The taps occasionally splutter a little, but not regularly when turned on and I presumed it was because t
  6. 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
  7. Hi. I’m hoping could someone tell me if the aquasmart systems need the non return valves and diaphragm included in the inlet service kit. I can’t seem to see them on my existing socket thanks
  8. Hi, this is my first post and I'm relatively new to caravanning! I have a Ace Jubilee 2003 caravan and I'm having problems with my pump. Recently had the van serviced and whilst it was being serviced I got told I need a new pump as my one was broken at the intake valve and was letting water back in and this was causing the pump to run automatically. Bought a new pump. ..SAME PROBLEM! I've disconnected the microswitches on the bathroom sink tap and the kitchen tap but cant get access to the shower switch. No joy. Its on EHU but ive been told my leisure battery is faulty so ive re-ordered th
  9. Hi everyone - new to the forum - so hi. .! I have a 2015 Coachman Laser, i consider myself an experienced caravaner, - this is my 4th Laser so I am very familier with the controls and functions including the pressure switch adjustment procedure. Also technically proficient. .. However am looking for anyone else’s experience on this one. .. The van hasn’t been used for a while, - this weekend went away. hooked up on an aqua roll and am using a brand new Truma ultra flow pistol pump, I can fill the onboard tank ok, however the ultra flow pump dosent stop when the tank is 100%, I t
  10. Just after a bit of advice regarding issues I have with the water system on my Avante 636 (2yr old) - whale IC system. The problems first started in July when after filling a new aqua roll of water the pump failed to work. I cleaned the terminals and reconnected and it worked fine for next few days then stopped again. Same process of disconnecting and reconnecting got the pump going each time it stopped. Next site and We had similar issues to start with, then after we got the pump running it was running constantly and not switching off forcing a leak to the housing. (Not seen
  11. Has anybody ever tried to convert a Whale Elegance Mixer tap to a shower mixer? Just wondered if it is possible and how easy / difficult it is please?
  12. Hi everyone Here we go, post No. 1 As above, is their an alternative to the Whale Pressure Switch for operating the external submersible pump ? See photo. One that will be a direct replacement or a close to as possible. ... would be good. I have seen on the internet some pressure switches made by 'Comet' two types, a simple one and a digital more complex and expensive one. .. has anyone changed out a Whale pressure switch for one of these or any similar units and are they any better than the Whale pressure switch which I find has been a little temperamental and sometimes frustrati
  13. I've just taken delivery of a new pegasus 65 genoa. Haven't been away yet but have been tinkering on the drive today as you do. I started with the whale space heater,worked my way through the Ivan menu,turned it on on the lowest setting and couldn't believe how noisey it is. When I upt the power to full it sounded like we were taking off. Outside it sounded worse. I was wondering if anyone had had similar or is this the norm for the system. on low it's as noisey as the truma was on 4-5. you certainly couldn't sleep with it on. We spend time on cl sights without electric and was wonderin
  14. What cold water flow rate can I expect at the Kitchen sink (first water outlet next to the front seat) With a new Whale Watermaster onboard water pump FP0814/B Model 2. 0 GPM 8Ltrs/min fitted in my Bailey Olympus 462 2011 I have measured the flow at 4. 3Ltrs, with old and new filters fitted and very slightly more with no filter. (so slight that I didn’t bother measuring it) Which does seem a long way off the rated 8Ltrs Any help would be appreciated
  15. Do many of you carry a spare water pump? I used to when it was an external in the Aquaroll pump, but haven't since I changed the van to one with an on-board one. Thanks for your advice Dave
  16. Hi, I'm new to caravanning only starting last year but seem to have a fault with the water pump/system which seems to be intermittent, more often than not now intermittent! I'll try and give as much detail as possible, apologies if I provide too much or not enough. The caravan is an Abbey Aventura 330 and is fitted with a Whale high flow pump and what I can see from the internet a Truma Crystal 2 connection to the caravan. The pump connection to the caravan has a small diameter hole with a rubber 'o' ring to prevent leaks and 2 bullet connections for the 12v feed. It al
  17. Hi all. I recently bought a Abi Marauder Gold 450et. After hooking everything up today to check everything worked I noticed that the whale watermaster pump wasn't working. I took it inside to check it with a 12v supply and it worked which led me to believe the problem is inside the van somewhere. I checked the voltage across the terminals on the socket with a tap turned on and all I get is 0. 3v. This is my first caravan so have no idea where to start looking and any help would be greatly appreciated. The taps are microswitch controlled if that helps. Many thanks in advance. Aaron
  18. I have a Whale inline 12v water pump that runs but will not pump water. Appears to have air in pump. How do I remove air? How do I bleed system? Thanks in advance. Pat
  19. Hi I am hoping someone can help me sort my intermittent water pump operation on my Bailey Senator Series 5 Vermont with a Truma Smartflow W814 pump. I have a pic of the tank, pump and heater pipework etc (hopefully) attached. Initial problem With all taps off and onboard tank selected, the water pump would run every 5 minutes or so for approx 10-20 strokes. Investigation carried out, no water leaks apparent within the system. Cold feed pipe from water pump towards water heater found to be warm to the touch. Research suggested that fitting NRV at cold feed entry into water heater wo
  20. Had a bit of a nightmare with water this weekend. I attached the pump to the van etc and went in to turn on. The pump was running and at first I hsd the usual air/water then water however shortly after the water stopoed coming from the tap but the pump was still running. After turning he pump off and back on the same happened. Van is a new bailey with I-control for the pump and heating. Ideas what I did wrong please
  21. Anyone used one of these, gives a mains water supply straight into the van. I was thinking of a mains adapter for the aquaroll, but at £48. 00, it seems abit steep, you can get the aquasource for £44. 00 and it's seems a lot more convenient . ... Anyone any experience of them. ... Thanks Tim
  22. The Whale mixer taps on my 2002 Abbey Expression (Shower and Washbasin) keep seizing up, and one has sheared off when attempting to free it. Usually they free with a bit of force but I would like to stop it happening. Can they be loosened off or lubricated in any way. The one I had to replace last September is sticking already. Thanks.

    Water Pump

    Hi all, Bound to have been covered before but here goes. Going off with the van tomorrow, done all my usual checks, when it came to the water pump, plugged it in, dead no sign of life even though the 12v meter in the van showed a slight drop, any way by the time I got round to the pump which was in a bucket of water it was hot an smelling that burnt out smell, unplugged straight away. The impeller had become seized over winter and with a turn with a pair of tweezers it was free, plugged back in and hey presto it works( we'll makes a noise) but there is only a trickle of water not even enou
