I've just purchased a 2008 Bailey senator wyoming series 6 and for the life of me can't figure out how to get hot water.

I think I've followed the handbook but no success.

Pat boy, I assume you’ve filled the hot water tank? If using gas the cowl (flue) cover has to be removed.

I don't know what i using, there's a switch that says 230v water heater that I've switched on but don't know how to choose between gas and electric.

I thought the hot water tank filled automatically from the aquaroll.

How do i fill the tank?

Firstly, if you have water running freely from all taps in both H & C positions - then your hot water tank should be full.

 

To run the heater on mains electric there should be a switch somewhere, possibly unlabelled like this -

 … or it may be on the main PSU, something like this …

… switch it on and you should have water at 65ºC (?) in about 20-30 minutes.

 

If you want to run it on gas, first ensure the gas is turned on at the bottle and at the manifold (probably in a cupboard somewhere, at floor level), and also remove the cowl from the outside flue …

… then look for something like this …

… and turn it on … then you can choose a temperature. I think you may get a green light if it lights or a red one if it fails (in which case wait a while and then try again).

 

Good luck, John.

Wow John thank you very much the advice you've given is amazing and very much appreciated. 

The tourer I've bought is permanently sited so i will be running the hot water on electric. 

This morning i just discovered the onboard water tank and have filled it.

I had assumed the hot water tank filled from the aquaroll but I'm now hoping its from the onboard water tank and its problem solved.

I've switched the hot water switch on and fingers crossed I'll have hot water soon. 

Thanks again for taking the time to help me out, i can't thank you enough. 

 

Best Wishes 

Pat

Pat, I’m probably too late, but don’t switch the heater on until you are positive there’s water in it - otherwise you’ll burn out the heating element and that’s expensive ☹️.

 

One way to check if the heater tank is full is to open the yellow drain tap which is next to it - and water should run out onto the ground under the van from a short spout.

:Thankyou: for letting us know Pat. Because I’ve never had an on-board tank, I never thought of that as being a possibility!

Crazy thing is you need to fill the onboard tank from inside the van.

You'd think they'd come up with an external filling system.
