    On our first trip to France and on hook up, we get a red flashing light on the dial when setting to hot water on its own or hot water and heating with elec on its own or with elec+ gas.

    All working OK on gas...

    Any ideas?

    Is the electric rated high enough? Usually u have two settings 900watt and 1800 watt from memory so roughly 4 amps and 8 amps. If the site only gives 4 amps and u have fridge etc on then that's why ...

    Its a 10A supply so is sufficient, but the red light flashes whether 900w or 1800w

    All other electrics working OK, so do nit think it is a volt drop issue

    Fully sober, not an ounce of alcohol in my body and tried counting flashes...

    To my eyes it just looks like constant flashing...looking at the link from @Minxy Girl it lists loads of different flashing combinations but for the life of me I cannot differentiate between the various fault codes....

    Am going to take it to a Truma service centre and borrow their eyes....

    I think the flash codes are for the LED on the main circuit board on the boiler, not the dial on the control panel. It sounds to me like the main 240v fuse on the boiler has gone. It's some time since I had a Truma, but this happened to me when I had one.

    So much easier when you find the right flashing light....

    s.s.l.s.ll.s.l

    Code 45 : no 230v supply.

    Have checked fuse and that is OK.

    Anybody know where the water temperature switch reset is?

    Did you by any chance switch the heater on before ehu connected? If so sometimes my iNet system is expecting ehu, but if I connect after switching unit on it doesn't clear the fault. If this was the case, power off heater then ehu. Connect ehu then heater. Maybe worth a try. (y)
