    I am started to think that one of the elements on the Truma heater has failed. Has anyone changed one of these elements, if so, how do I tackle it and how big a job is it to get to them. Any advice or previous experience would be very gratefully received.

    Its a fairly involved job. Whole heater unit needs to be removed and totally stripped to gain access to the elements. If you aren't completely comfortable and knowledgable about gas systems you'd do better passing it on to a Truma trained workshop.

    Thanks for that Dave, I'm continuing to monitor the heater to see if it has failed. The solar panel you fitted a couple of weeks ago is working a treat! Many thanks.

    Bear in mind that the 230volt side of this boiler is only a supplement to the gas and is inherently shite on it's own.

    Over the last six years we've found that the 230v heating does okay for us until the outside temperature gets down to around 5C, below that we need the gas on to maintain 21c inside. Still not sure if both elements are working though.

    Agree completely.. Electric heating is poor but adequate for overnight heating when it's not too cold out

    Bearing in mind that the electric heating is 1800 Watts while the gas fired heating is 6000 Watts its hardly syrprising the electric heating is not setting your world on fire.
    "inherently shite" is a bit over the top I think.
