    We have a Truma boiler BS 10. It has always worked perfectly until now we are halfway across France :Eeek: The problem now is that we only get 2 or 3 litres of hot water out of it :cry: We have checked for air locks but all seems ok.
    Any suggestions?

    This may or may not help. We had a similar problem - heater was working fine and we were getting hot water but only half what we should have been getting.
    On the water supply pipe there is a non return valve that stops the water circulating back into the cold water tank. Our man undid this and blew in it and discovered the non return valve had broken inside and half our hot water was returning to the cold water tank.
    I would think our system is considerably older than yours as ours is 1999 model Truma so your system might be different.
    Hope this helps but how you get a replacement in France I am not sure.
