How to Turn on the Hot Water Service

It’s great to have hot water when you are camping.  Whether for a shower or simply to wash the dishes, having a hot water service on board is a great option in a caravan.

*** Helpful Hint: when you are making coffee in the morning, start the kettle WITH hot water and you’ll get that cup of java a lot quicker.

Troubleshooting any Problems with the Hot Water Service

  1. Check for gas or electrical supply issues.

More often than not, hot water systems stop working because of a fault in the gas or power supply. If your hot water service runs on gas, your other gas-powered appliances can give you a clue as to whether gas is reaching your system. Test the stove.  Can you light a burner?  If not, check the gas bottle, is it turn on?  Is it empty?  If the gas is on and the bottle has gas in it, we need to get a bit more technical in our approach.

The next step would be to check the circuit breaker.  This may be a challenge to locate as it is different in each caravan.  For electric hot water systems, check that the electrical connection is in order. Check your other electrical appliances to ensure that they’re working. Check for a blown fuse, and replace if necessary.
