We have a "Whale" space heater in our Elddis motorhome, the control panel is a duo panel in that it operates both the water heater and the space heater. The space heater is working ok but the water heater control appears to have a mind of its own, Its fluctuating between , 1 bar , 2 bars 3 bars , gas and gas and electric. even though its not on EHU. it comes on and goes off on its own. tried resetting it, When its in this mode the touch controls do not work in that they will not switch between functions and cannot be turned off.

Same problem with mine its an Elddis 2017 and my space heater control has started jumping between all settings and sometimes doesn’t work at all. I suspect it’s the control panel but would like to sure before I order a new one. Did you figure yours out? Thanks

The only thing we can do is replace it when we get home from France, where we are now. Replacement is £199.

It may not be the control panel - we slightly different whale controls (two circular touch controls - one for heating, one for water). The water has been misbehaving in a similar way - will not come on, random lights, etc.

So far we have had the control panel replaced, the wiring between the control panel and the water heater unit, the main water heater unit circuit board and still no cure. The theory now is that the problem is something called the LIN circuit board which is in the water heater main unit and does the job of communicating with the control panel. Once Whale send that part out to the dealer under warranty we will find out if it is the right diagnosis :)

cheers,

Robin
