Mover XT – LED 3 of remote control flashes 4 times

If the remote control emits an acoustic signal four times after beeing switched on and the red warning triangle (LED 3) flashes four times at the same time, the cause therefor could lie on the batteries, the battery voltage or on the remote control itself.

We recommend the following procedure in order to narrow down the cause.

1. Check that rotary switch and slide switch are in neutral position.

2. Check batteries of remote control (voltage) and replace if necessary.

The battery voltage of the remote control must be greater than or equal to 3,6 V (3 x 1,5 V AAA batteries). If rechargeable batteries are being used, it must be noted that because of the lower voltage of the rechargeable battery (3 x 1,2 V) the remote control is operated right at the limit and the rechargeable batteries have to be replaced or charged at frequent intervals!

3. Check battery quality.

Please use only high quality, leak-proof batteries with steel casing. Low-cost  batteries with a simple aluminium casing are not leak-proof and may also cause problems in the remote control.

4. Check software version.

The error could also appear with software version 1. The software version (HW 1 or HW 2) can be identified on the label above the batteries.

Should the software version be HW 1 or the above mentioned actions do not show any success, please contact our service.

 

 

Can gas cylinders be connected when on the road?

Connected gas cylinders are classified as operating media and not hazardous substances (ADR release in compliance with sections 1.1.3.1 and 1.1.3.2. e). Gas cylinders that are not connected to gas installations always need to be closed and be fitted with protective caps.

The Truma gas remote switch allows the entire gas supply to be switched off comfortably from inside the vehicle at the push of a button. This does away with the need to go to the cylinder box and manually close the gas cylinders.

Retrofitting the control panel Truma CP Plus – what do I need to know?

The LCD display control panel CP Plus can always be retrofitted in all Truma Combi heaters. It cannot be fitted into older heater models, e.g. the C-heater.XXX

The Combi heaters were launched by Truma in 2007 and can be recognised by the grey casing. From series start in the year 2013 the models have a black casing.

Do the electronics need to be replaced when fitting the CP Plus?

If you already have a Truma Combi heater with the appropriate software version, so only the old control panel need to be replaced with the new one (see installation instructions and user manual. https://www.truma.com/downloadcenter/cp_plus_installation_operating_de_gb_fr_it.pdf)

How can I see whether the electronics of the Combi need to be replaced?

Combi Totale(markiert)

 

Via the software version of the electronics. To do this, please remove the clipped on part of the electronics cover (see picture left ). You do not need tools for this.

 

 

Platine Nah(markiert)

 

You should now be able to see the part of the PCB to which the positive and negative cable is fitted. There is a sticker here that states the software status of the electronics (see picture on the right).

Oil leakage on the Mover Gear Unit following Assembly/Replacement

An oil leak discovered in the gearbox following assembly of your Mover or replacement of the gear units, does not constitute a defect but rather results from the Transport and/or assembly.XXX

The oil leakage in the gearbox is caused by the fact that the Mover gearbox is somtimes turned several times during assembly, transport and installation under the caravan, causing the lubricant Continue reading

Gas testing certificate – this is important when buying or hiring a camping vehicle!

If you are looking to buy a second-hand camping vehicle or hire a vehicle, please note the following with regard to the gas supply:

Carefree holidays with hired vehicles.

Carefree holidays with hired vehicles. XXX
Always check that the gas system has been tested and has a valid gas testing certificate. This testing certificate may only be completed and signed by a gas expert. In addition to the testing certificate, a test plate in compliance with G607 is attached to the outside of the vehicle, assuming that it has passed the inspection (see figure bottom right).
Also check whether the gas system can be operated whilst the vehicle is driving. If there is no safety lock (like the Truma crash sensor) in the vehicle, the heating cannot be operated when on the road.

In this case the valves on the gas cylinders need to be closed. A warning sticker attached to the gas cylinder box states that the gas cylinders need to be closed when the vehicle is on the road.

Can a Mover be used as a theft prevention?

To use the Mover as a theft prevention, the drive rollers must be approached on the tires.

We do not recommend this method, because over a long term period and the permanent pressure of the drive rollers on the tires, these could be deformed and damaged. There is nothing to say against a short term use.

Oily or soiled controllers

Problems with oily or soiled gas are common abroad, although this problem occurs occasionally in Germany in connection with gas from fuel stations for vehicle tanks or also tank cylinders.

Unfortunately there is no way of recognising the quality of the gas you purchase, when swapping the cylinders or filling your tank/cylinder at the fuel station. Continue reading

Regular inspection of the gas system in camping vehicles

How often does the gas system in a caravan or motorcaravan need to be inspected?

In Germany the gas system needs to be checked regularly every 2 years by a liquid gas expert (DVFG, TÜV, DEKRA). This is documented in a testing certificate (G607) and a test plate is attached to the outside of the vehicle.

Both the gas pressure controller and the gas hoses need to be replaced at the latest 10 years after the production date.
