Reset function on the CPplus

The spanner in the lower right-hand area of the display is used to access the settings menu of the CPplus operating element. And it is here that you will find the menu item “Reset”. However, many people are unfamiliar with its function.

When the CPplus is delivered, it is completely blank with regard to the units to be controlled. The device memory is empty. During the vehicle conversion at the caravan or motor home manufacturer, the vehicle technology is implemented step by step into the body and at some point the gas supply and heating and air conditioning system from our company is also installed. In order to be able to operate and monitor all Truma devices, the device memory in the CPplus must finally be filled. And this is what the reset function is for. By pressing the control knob when “RESET” is shown on the display, I activate this function and “PRSET” appears. Press the control knob again to delete the unit’s memory. After this, “INIT” appears; all units connected to the CPplus with a TIN cable and supplied with voltage at the time of initialisation are now written into the unit memory of the CPplus. Only at this point can they be controlled with the operating element. All symbols belonging to the units are then stored on the display and can be selected.

Please note that a reset is never used to reset an error code. If, for example, the heater reports a gas error ( E506H, E516H or E517H), the reset automatically locks the control electronics of the heater for 15 minutes. If a reset is activated with the warning message W255H, which indicates that the control element has lost contact with the heater, then the CPplus is returned to the delivery state without a connected heater. In this case, the power supply of the heater and the TIN connection cable to the heater should be checked first.
