    Well isn't motor homing fun ?
    I did a quick service as a matter or form since returning form Newbury (had given full service prior to tat show) and had a few days out since then no problems at all with habitation ancillaries lights, heater, cooker, water heater all working as they should tried them all yesterday not a problem Now Mr Electrolux the fridge, whilst he likes the 240v and the 12 v ,gives no quarter while trying to stuff gas up his bottom end (now now then that's where the gas inlet is ,
    I think the new piezo ignition and the delivery valve have had a tiff, worked fine when only away local for the day.
    And fine yesterday cooling it down
    But now parked at towards Evesham for the night "The Beckford Inn " but now the bleddy things gone walkabout! on gas !

    it could be a speck of grit in the jet or even a flake of rust or soot dislodged from the flue. pop the bottom airvent off and give it a good clean, this may save you taking the fridge out.

    ^^ He's on the Money - 99% of the time, this is the cause. Usually wosre after wet weather - especially after a dry spell when the grit level is high.
