Stanton, electrical relay issue!

Post by Pete Taylor on Thu Apr 13, 2017 12:22 pm

New problem arose this morning- the relay shown in the photo which is located under the o/s bed on the opposite side of the wall to the Truma (Trauma?) heater keeps cycling: click, click...pause  click, click...pause, so it seems to me that it is making and breaking twice then pausing.
Firstly can anyone tell me what this relay does (I'm guessing something to do with the Truma) and secondly why it should be cycling- the Truma control is switched off btw.

Now it could be that I've inadvertently switched something on somewhere but if so, I can't find it.

I've switched off the ECU and back on; is there some other way of re-booting all the electrical systems? 

I wish that there was a proper technical manual for these vans studying

01386 853511 (A/S Service Centre.) Ask for Mark.

As you are preparing for a trip you'll want a fast and definitive answer. I'd say he's your best bet.

Spoke to Mark- he knew exactly what it was even before I told him where the relay was!!! He asked if the water tank was full- which it is and he said it's the float switch in the tank which is making the relay operate as I was moving about in the van!

Doh!

I have noticed that, too, in the past but realised what it was because it coincided with water sloshing noises - Too late finding post however to save you a phone call

I don't think I've ever filled the water tank right up- it only happened this time because a delivery arrived and I left the hose running! Normally we just carry enough water to enable us to wash hands or dishes en route.
I see no merit in toting water to Scotland.
