LPG Indicator Empty LPG Indicator

Afternoon all,

Still getting used to the Cotswold!

It has an LPG tank.

It has one of these indicators on the dash

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Not sure how it works-when I start the engine all green LEDS come on-does this show it is full?

What does the button on the left do?

Any advice greatly received.

Regards 

Steve

Hi Steve

Ours is quite different, but a full complement of green lights will indicate a full tank.

The button on the left is another classic example of non-verbal communication that's about as much use as a fag on a motorbike.  shrugg

I have no more idea than you, but it should be in the handbook. (I know we blokes don't - but just this oncehugegrins)

My guess would be that it's a remote tank valve switch - but that really is a guess.

Thanks Gromit-do your lights just stay on for a few seconds when you turn the engine on?

I've looked in the manual-but cannot find anything apart from how to fill the system.

You could always pop along the the Motorhome Show at Malvern starting next Friday till Sunday 

Autosleepers have a section so I am sure plenty of suggestions will be available

No. Ours stay on all the time while the engine is running. I would expect yours to do the same, as it's not much use having an indicator that works for only a few seconds.

I don't know though, as I've never seen one like that.

But I went on FB not just for the auto-sleeper group and saw the   question there so answered it. Then come here and see same question. Should I answer it again.? Perhaps those who are on both should post on one or the other and allow 24 hrs for answers before posting again on the other

Hi Paul

I was just interested what your findings were.

Are you at Malvern next weekend?

Sorry Terry, didn't mean to be off, just knackered from walking around. Here's my answer...

When you switch on ignition the lights come on one at a time with several seconds between each one. As you use the gas, less lights illuminate.

Won't be at Malvern but should be at Shepton Mallett

Doubt I’ll make Shelton Mallett, but hope to be at Autosleepers Rally at Southport in the Autumn

Thanks all,

Its been answered on Facebook. The switch looking thing is not a switch but an indicator to show that the Webasto heater is on whilst driving.

Thanks again

Steve

Ps. The reason I posted on Facebook as well is that I am a member of several classic car clubs-some members only post on the forum and others only on Facebook.

Yes I read the button answer on FB. Thanks for updating us here, it's useful for others.
