Gas - Hot Water, Heating & Cooking

 
Turn the gas on

Turn the gas on

Locate the locker outside the vehicle (between the drivers door and the cabin door) that houses the gas cylinders. 

Check which gas bottle is supplying gas to the vehicle by checking  where the small arrow is pointing on the Truma Duo Control.  In this picture it is pointing to the left cylinder connection. 

Turn the knob on the top of the cylinder to the left to open and to the right to close (if you are in doubt, check the diagram on the inside of the locker door).

 

There is a indicator at the top of the cylinder showing the gas level. 

If you need to refill, visit a 'Calor' outlet (google Calor outlet for the nearest supplier).  The outlet will exchange the empty cylinder for a full one at a cost of between £24-30.

DO NOT DRIVE THE VEHICLE WITH THE GAS ON!

 
Cabin gas manage system

Cabin gas manage system

Open the cupboard door under the oven and you will see the gas management system.

Each of the oven, hob, boiler (hot water and heating) and fridge has it's own valve, so can be individually turned on and off.  If the knob is parallel to the pipe then it is off, or across the pipe is on.  (see diagram next to the pipes).

 
Hot water & heating boiler

Hot water & heating boiler

** Ensure there is water in the fresh water tank before trying to turn on the the boiler.

- turn the gas management system knob (in the cupboard under the oven) with a steaming tap to open.

- On the control panel above the cabin door, press the button to the left of the power button that looks like a tap; this will start the pump.  The pump will be quite noisy for a few minutes, then should run quietly.

 

- on the Truma Combi dial to the right of the control panel, turn the outer circle so the pointer is at the desired combination (best to feel where the pointer is on the outer dial as it is not that easy to see).

  • 60degrees with the wavy line = very hot water only
  • 40degrees with wavy line = hot water only (quicker reheat)
  • O = off
  • flame only = heating only [level of heating is as per the lit up number on the inner dial; 1 is lowest]
  • flame & 60degrees with wavy line = heating and water is on.  [water is very hot and heating level is as per inner dial].

In this picture, the heating is at level 2 and very hot water are turned on.

 
Hob cooking

Hob cooking

  • Turn the gas management system knob (in the cupboard under the oven) with a pot on it, to open.
  • On the hob, push in the button/dial corresponding to the hot ring you want to cook on, and turn it to full.
  • Hold it pushed in whilst you light it with the long lighter [top drawer].  It is sometimes slow to light all the way around so keep holding the button in, until it catches fully.

** 2 critical safety issues

  • ensure that the kitchen window is open when the hob is in use.
  • never close the lid of the hob down whilst any of the hob rings are still lit. 

 
Oven cooking

Oven cooking

  • turn the gas management system knob (in the cupboard under the oven) with an oven on it, to open.

to grill

  • Turn the dial to the right and hold it pressed in whilst you press the button on the left which is the ignition spark. 
  • Check that the top of the oven is lit.  If not lit, repeat.  If it doesn't light on the 3rd attempt - ensure you turn the dial back to off before going to investigate that all gas supplies are open.
  • Do not shut the oven door when grilling.

to oven bake

  • Turn the dial as far left as you can, and hold it pressed in whilst you press the button on the left which is the ignition spark. 
  • Check that the rear bottom of the oven is lit.  If not lit, repeat.  If it doesn't light on the 3rd attempt - ensure you turn the dial back to off before going to investigate that all gas supplies are open.
  • Once lit, turn the left dial to the heating level required.

 

NEVER USE THE OVEN OR GRILL WHILST THE VEHICLE IS MOVING.
