    I think we have a lot to learn, we were a bit exited when we picked her up we didn't take it all in, we are very grateful for everyones help on this forum, this is the control panel on the heater which we have a rough idea how it works, can we heat the van without gas when plugged in at home? bet we sound stupid for asking this.

    Some space heaters are gas only and some are gas and electric. The picture you show is for the electric heating controls but there may be an additional switch like the one in your first post to supply 230V mains to the heater also.
    The front slider symbols from left to right are:

    Off - fan on cold - low power heating - medium power heating - high power heating

    The rear slider is the thermostat

    Thanks trevor, we had her hooked to mains last night, the switch in the cupboard behind the heater made no difference off or on to the warm air blowing through the holes below sofas, the heater slide was on high power without the gas but after half an hour was still just luke warm, I really need to meet someone with an autotrail in the flesh, steve.:whistle:

    Does the switch heat the water?

    The switch in the cupboard behind the heater is for mains to the heater, this has to be on in conjunction with the heat select your 500, 1000 or 2000. Please note that the heater on electric is not very efficient for blown air, as in if you had fan on full, you will only ever get luke warm. The blown air work better using gas or when it's really cold both. The switch in the first pic you posted was most likely for hot water, lift the seat cushion and the hot water boiler will no doubt be under there. Trace the cable from the switch. The main fused switches are generally positioned close to the appliance they feed the switch to your fridge will no doubt be located in the adjacent cupboard.
