    If it is one of those god awful Truma press button type regulators then you can bet your life that will be it !!

    I ended up changing the regulator and the ( Truma supplied ) pigtail to return everything to working order

    Bought a GasLo one from the local caravan place.. It was the only one they had that was any size, but glad I did as it has performed faultlessly .. It was £32.00

    Agree with jaws, especially if it's one of the truma bulkhead regulators, they are known to clog up with an oily substance that is formed in the pigtail, especially if the regulator is lower than the valve on the bottle, low and behold in great truma wisdom instead of curing the problem regulators they came out with a "filter" of course at extra expence to to consumer.

    Hi Bailay. Just a thought, Is the heater fitted with a safty device that closes down the flame if there is a combustion problem? Example - If it overheats or has it detected carbon monoxide.
    Do's the flame in the heater and the cooked burn yellow, not blue'. If it burns yellow you need to have it checked out by a profesional.
