In Morocco, been using the Truma without a problem - last had it on gas a week ago but now the gas won't light. Plenty of gas as cooker/fridge working OK. Any fixes for a non-tech person?
A bit naffed off with Truma too as boiler and MH 4 years old and boiler casing sprung a leak - pinhole - and had to replace. Cost a bomb but has worked since until now.

Some Trumas don't like a low battery level, have you been using a lot of 12v, take it for a drive if you don't have a meter, and try again.

Other low tech idea is to check the pipe from you gas cylinder is not kinked or blocked there were a few threads about oil seeping into the regulator if the pipes were not in the right height, can't remember the exact cause.

I hope you get it sorted, but don't let it spoil your holiday, use the kettle and wrap up warm.

We had same symptoms a couple of witers ago.
It turned out to be the Truma gas regulator which tends to get gunged up with an oily liquid. It will allow a small amout of gas through which is enough for the hob and the fridge but the heating system requires much more gas and the flow is insufficient to power it.
It's a quick/simple job to replace and I now carry a spare (Sort of guarantees it'll never happen again doesn't it?)
There are numerous threads on here and other MH sites where people have had this issue.
There are numerous other possibilities but my money would be on the regulator if it's a Truma - I had ours replaced with a different make.

Whereabouts are you in Morocco?
If yopu are near Agadir I can give you the address/coordinates of a MH repair shop that does good work at reasonable prices and they speak good English. They have done a couple of jobs for me and I can recommend them[B]

We live in sunny Yorkshire and it can get very windy up here. We have had problems with the wind affecting the flue on the Truma combi 4E. Is the wind blowing directly on the side of the van where the flue is located?. If it is you could try turning the van round.
Hope this is of help.
