Only after I bought it!

Post by cruisecontrol on Mon Jul 24, 2017 3:38 pm

Only after i bought an AS Broadway (2015 model) I've found that the Truma heater is under the wardrobe and mounted such that access to fuses etc is well nigh impossible without removing either the wardrobe floor and/or the front panel. 

Having had a life time (well it feels like it!) experience with Truma I fear for the future when I'll need access. If anyone has experience I'd be grateful for comment.

We remove the drawer below the wardrobe in order to hoover round the boiler every now and again - which helps with the smell.  Easy to do and certainly not a problem. There are 6 plastic caps -3 each side of the panel below the drawer- and levering them off reveals screws which hold the panel in place for full access to the boiler etc

Our panel has been off for servicing and, because the wrong boiler was fitted, to replace it and it has clearly not done any damage to panel or caps or taken very long to do.  I am sure AS designed it to be easy.

( Edit: I think the fuses are in the wardrobe, in the glass panelled box at the back)
