Some practical tips if you break down or experience water problems during your trip.
Necessary: Before turning on the water pump, make sure your clean water tank is not empty!
The water pump :
The clean water tank and the water pump are often located on the passenger bench. To access it, remove the cushions from the court.
- The water pump does not start or blow up the circuit.
1/ Check the condition of the water pump fuse and replace it if necessary
2/ Check if the pump engine is hot. If it is hot, it will be able to restart after cooling.
- The water pump makes noise.
Make sure there is clean water left in the tank. You can see the clean water level by pressing the button at the console level.
- The water pump leaks
You realize there’s water under the bench where the water tank is.
1/ If it rains a lot, this could be a cause of the problem
2/ You just made the filling: a leak of the fullness. Open the faucets to drain some water.
3/ You have started the pump: leakage from the hydraulic circuit. Get in touch with a repairer.
4/ Leakage of the pump and its filter
Make sure the components of the water pump are tight.
If the problem is not solved, unscrew the filter between the tank and the pump. The toric seal (round and flat seal) may be the cause of the leak. Clean the filter with soap or white vinegar. Screw the filter again. If the problem persists, it is likely necessary to replace the filter.
The water heater :
The water heater is usually located behind the passenger seat (under the seat) or in a cupboard. It often runs on gas or electricity.
If light a is lit red, there is a fault. Example of an indicator light for a Truma appliance :
- After the ignition, the water heater does not start.
Check the battery voltage and check the water heater fuse.
- After the ignition, the water heater does not start, and the red LED lights up.
1/ Remove the fireplace cover and remove any dirt that may be present.
2/ Check that the gas is open, and the cylinder is not empty.
3/ There may be air in the gas supply. To evacuate the air, stop the water heater, wait 5 minutes, and put it back on.
- After an extended operating time, the water heater goes into failure mode, and the red LED lights up.
The overheating controller went off.
1/ Check the volume of clean water and fill it up if necessary.
2/ Stop the water heater, wait 5 minutes and turn it back on.
- Water drains from the drain valve.
The water pressure is too high.
