It isn’t odd at all it’s perfectly normal. The simple explanation is that in order to produce the gas from the liquid heat must be absorbed through the cylinders walls ( latent heat ).Thanks for replies, I did fill up in spain, but it was morning and certainly not warm, it’s odd because it works the cooker.@Lenny HB , I’m still in Spain.
Cooker doesn't need anything like the flow rate the Combi does. I reckon a lot of butane in the bottles is your problem, even though butane will work with the cooker often well below 10° you will be lucky to for the Combi to work anything like that low with butane it's not the gassing off that's a problem it's the flow rate.Thanks for replies, I did fill up in spain, but it was morning and certainly not warm, it’s odd because it works the cooker.@Lenny HB , I’m still in Spain.
@Blue Knight Thanks for the link, After reading your post I realise I’m almost having the same problem as in the codes you mentioned, I’ve had exactly the same codes. I say almost because mine will work when the 11kg bottle is being used. I also tried turning up the temp and high fan on the 6kg bottle, it starts up but after a while shuts down.
No, not really but, in a PVC we only have room for 2 x 6kg cylinders.So a 6Kg bottle really isn't good if you have a 6kw gas heater for winter use.
The Combi needs a high flow rate so will stop working long before the cooker. Try not to fill up in Spain or France as can have up to 65% Butane, if you are going to fill up in Spain do it in the mountains were its cold you will then get a high propane mix. France should be OK at this time of year.

However, although we use Aires in France and wild camp during the summer, in a British winter we tend to use sites with EHU.
We find that running the Truma heater on “Mix 2”, ie gas and electric together it stretches the gas supply considerably.
More confusion, the second bottle ran out on the last morning of my trip, so I now have 6kg and 11 kg empty, now I know I’m new to this but when I filled it only took 21.6 litres and I thought it should be 30+ litres, is there a problem with the bottles or the Truma heating?.
