    hello all.

    En route from belgium and our first trip was great. Our 2 year old particularly loved it!

    A few little problems have surfaced as they do. One is the heater. I think its a trauma system but really common. Fan works fine but no heat comes out. I can also hear a clicking from the engine bay.

    Am I missing something obvious or does it need looking at?

    Thanks

    Hi, Lobleg most common fault with this heater is people tend to leave the external plastic cover on causing clicking noise as igniter will not work ,safety measure:Smile:

    thanks for that but the cover is off. I'll do some looking but failing that, take it to someone who knows what they're doing.

    Cheers

    Stating the obvious, do you have plenty of gas ? Just a thought...

    Is there have you got an isolating valve for the gas fire that has been inadvertantly been turned off ? A lot of MH have..

    Does the cooker still work on gas ?

    Yep - cooker works fine and we have just refilled the gas bottle. Will check the valves as you suggest though - I could do with familiarising myself with these fellas anyway!

    Cheers

    ermm..... Think so. There's one button for hot and one cold and the variable fan is there not? Definitely had the hot button on.

    Cheers though. Will check these things at the weekend.

    :)
