    I want to upgrade my Carver Cascade gas boiler to one thats gas and 240 volt!
    I have looked at most models like the Propex Malaga and the Trauma Ultra but was wondering if anyone had any advice on them!
    Good or Bad!

    PS: Its mainly so i can get a decent shower!

    Hi DD I had the CC in the last van and now have the trauma in this cannot say there is any difference they both heat the water - trauma a little bigger-It would not fit in the same hole:Doh: but if you have room give Knolbeck caravans ,derwent way, brampton , a call (ask for Steve) they had traumas for about 300 but it would need the electric element buying about 50 ish. a good saving from about 500 ish:thumb:

    That was another one of my questions but to be honest i don't trust this boiler!
    On gas it keeps melting the safety plug!
    13 litres of piping hot water sounds good too!

    PS: The bus is 21 years old so i think it might be due a new one anyway!

    Hi DD the CC is about 10 ins sq by about 20 ins long ish and the Trauma is adout 18 ins round ish by 12/14 ins high ish :thumb:
    ish :Rofl1: if you have room you can apply a sq of ali sheet over old hole then fix the new vent onto that and line the vent to the boiler if you are with me?

    Cheers Terry!
    I have heaps of room to put a new one in!
    The Trauma looks good but then so does the Propex Malaga!
    My only problem now is finding a supplier!
    I live in a holiday resort and i'm working in one but it seems suppliers are thin on the ground around here appart from Cambells!
