Water heater

Question

Posted

I am new to caravaning,I got a Rialto 480/2  2003 model,

i can't find the controls for the gas water heater.It is a TRUMA us103, there are no controls under the flap outside just a vent,

i have traced the gas pie into the tank.All I have is my pump switch on / off and up in the electric control unit it has trip switches (elcb) volt meter & 2 red switches 1) water heater 2) space heater the unit is MK505.There are 4 on/off gas valves in the press beside the fridge for the gas supply.

i have searched all presses,under the seats,for the unit as shown on the instructions to switch it on /off & the gas stat .

I only have 1 stat for the heating which is on the unit over the heater to the left .

I'm not sure I understand the question... however...

You seem to answer your own question (it's also electric)

& 2 red switches 1) water heater 2) space heater

Turn the switches on and your hot water will work - and your heating

There should be in your van somewhere - often near the heater - a box with a dial to vary temperature and possibly control on-off of the water heater - this might help
