    Hi,
    The Truma Combi boiler in our van wont come on.

    The red LED on the PCB is flashing a code.

    Does anyone know of a Truma repair provider in the West Midlands?

    Thanks

    What type of gas are you using, propane (red canister) or butane (blue)? Our truma went off last night as it was too cold for the butane to vapourize enough for the heating, even though the cooker and fridge were still ok. Later today as it got warm everything went back to normal!

    @BgClick I have had this a couple of times, once because of low gas pressure (running out!) and another time after changing from water to heat. On both occasions I simply turned of the heater unit, waited for a minute then turned it back on again...... it did the trick. Worth a try?

    It's the PCB LED that's flashing, getting nothing on the dials :-( the code is SSLSLLLS

    I think that it's going to be the PCB seeing as it just failed, no other events to link it with.

    I'm hoping Dave can fit me in soon because I have done one night of five and its a tad inconvenient not having hot water and a bit if warm air last thing at night. :)
