It's probably just a thermistor, connect a meter set to ohms across the terminals adjust meter settings until you get a reading, then heat the end of sender the reading should change. A very rough test that will only tell you that it is basically working.

I thought I was the only person this happened to !!
Still got a nice brand new Ducato X-250 heater control resistor and a flue cap that you fit so you can have the Truma gas heating on while driving along !

If you have the tools absolutely, failing that just twist em together and tape em up...... now that is bad practice.....:eek:but still far more reliable than a scotch lock :D
crimp connections, bullet connection, male and female spades, there are quite a few options(y) but never a scotch lock if you want reliable joints ;)
IMO of course
