Hi a big thank you to all who have offered advice with my recent posts on problems with our new 'to us' traffic camper van, im not ignoring anyone but still going through everything. Will update here later with the hope might help others. In the meantime has anyone got a gas warm air blow heater, ours has been very difficult to start, had it running once, don't seem to want to play again, got plenty power & gas. Motor starts seems as if its going to go then stops manual says turn off n keep trying, any ideas welcomed.

Had problems once with my gas fired water heater in my caravan.
Spider had found the air inlet to its liking and overwinter, blocked the thing.
With what you are saying, I suspect the air pressure switch is not seeing sufficient pressure so locking out before gas valve is opened.
Worth a check on inlet and outlet for any blockages.
But please bear in mind, this is a gas fired appliance, should be a Gas Safe engineer to do anything serious, it is a potential bomb or will poison you...carbon monoxide.
If unsure, get someone in.

Hi. Thanks for your quick reply, ive worked with a gas engineer on caravans and lived on sea going and now a narrow boat for years. So very aware of gas safety issues. I won't be playing around. Your comments are most welcome I'll be very careful. Cheers Toni

Oops and more questions, is it possible to get the 'little black bulb holders that fit on the back of the instrument panel'? My lights on indicator doesn't light, the bulb holder is missing as they are for some other lights, cheers Toni

DO you mean the Green light that shows on the instrument cluster here?

Is the main beam ( blue ) working ok?

If the same as my 1988 1.7 T1000 - no bulb holder or power supply fitted for dipped beam - ( no wire in conn block that connects to bulb holder trace on panel ) optional extra ! - same with rear fog light - only power supply to o/s rear - no wire in conn block from o/s rear fog to n/s , another optional extra perhaps - or more likely o/s fog light only for `80`s regs
