Hello Motorhomers, a newbie here. A bit of assistance if possible please.
The water heater and room heater work well on gas. It is fitted with the 240 v option for water heating but when hooked up and switched on, no hor water. There is 240 v going in as i have put a meter in it and there is a switched supply but the green light in the cabin switch does not illuminate. Have i missed something? Its a 2003 rapido.
Thanks in anticipation.

Since 2015.......
Sounds like the 240v elements have failed?
It happened to us. Fine on gas, no good on 240v.
It’s not a cheap fix, £200 approx for the kit, then fitting. Yours being a Rapido, chances are the unit is under the kitchen sink area. Your probably looking at £500+, if you take it to Truma headquarters in Derby.
You can buy a lot of gas for that.....
Not many continental vans have the 240v option, just gas.

I have a 2004 Rapido with the same system. I have no "green light" that comes on but the heater does work on 240V. I think there is a specific fuse for hot water heating on the main fuseboard ( mine's under fixed bed at rear) - presume you have checked that? As Mr B says though, sounds like it might be a failure of the 240V heating element. At that price to fix it I would be inclined just to use gas I think!

Same with ours and yes its a Rapido so the hob has to come out to get to it. I haven't bothered to have it fixed and I doubt I will, I am happy with gas only and we hardly ever go on sites anyway.

We have a 2007 Rapido with the same heating and ours does work on EHU and there is a green light, also an amber one when its heating. The EHU is ok for water heating but pretty useless for actual heating.

Thank you for the replies. Rude of me to have replied last year.
It works fine now!
