Hi 

 

I am a newbie at this, does anyone know what is the purpose of the 2 penlight batteries in the toilet cassette compartment of my 2008 exclusive? 

A second question , does the defy 2 plate gas stove have some type of ignite system or do i have to use a match,etc?

I have waited a long time to hit the road.

As jy voor jou potra-potti staan is daar 'n rooi liggie aan die regterkant. Lyk soos 'n rooi stukkie plastiek in die wit. Die liggie is veronderstel om aan te kom as jou gryswater tenk vol is. Die batterye is vir die liggie. (Het jare terug ook een gehad wat so gewerk het)

Die gasstoof moet jy self aansteek met vuurhoutjies of 'n aansteker.

As jy regtig 'n piezo-elektriese aansteker wil hê, waarmee ek saamstem, kan jy dit los koop as vervanging vir die in stofies.  Met 'n bietjie beplanning behoort jy dit in jou stofie te installeer.

I will be very surprised if your 2008 Exclusive gas hob doesn't have a built in piezo igniter. The igniter activates when you push the hob gas control knob all the way in. Turn the knob all the way to the maximum flame setting, push in the knob ( you should hear a click sound coming from the piezo ) - once there is a flame, move the knob to the desired setting.
Each burner has its own igniter.

If your gas cylinder valve has been closed off for a while you may have to press and hold down the hob gas control knob for a while to allow the LP gas to travel from the cylinder to the burner, then release and push the knob a few to to re-ignite.

Been there--done it. ( Talking about the bathroom )

Thank you all for the info, it has been very helpful. Douglas, i have tried exactly as you said for the ignite but there is not even a click. That is why i thought there should be a battery or a mains connection for the ignite.

Dankie Fred, ek gaan vir die local gas mense vra of hulle die (piezo) igniter het in voorraad ek dan sal ek dit self insit.

Caravan dealers should also have the igniters Terrence.

Thys is heeltemal reg.  Al wat ek wil byvoeg is dat as daai liggie aankom.................  Moet Nie die toilet eers nog eenkeer spoel nie.  Dan gaan hy oorvol wees en kan dit ontaard in 'n effe gemors.

As die liggie aankom gaan maak die cassette leeg voor volgende gebruik.

As far as I know the "clicker" of a stove does not work with batteries. It is a small "dynamo" that gives a short shock when you click it, same as a cigarett lighter. If there is NO click then there is probably something wrong with the unit and should be replaced.

Thanks Fred , i will ask the caravan dealer, as i am speaking to them , as my caravan was broken into whilst on my first trip away. My main door lock was broken open lots of items gone. However, they did not know that you depress a knob to open the cupboards, so a crowbar was used on all the cupboards and the freezer. 

The forum is awesome , as i have already learnt how to replace the water pump, fitted caravan movers myself and figured out how the battery charging system works. Many thanks to all the contributors.

We had an awesome holiday on a wine farm.

That is really terrible to hear about the break in. Where was it? With the economy in shambles and high unemployment rate, I am afraid we are going to get more and more of this.

Dan het jy 'n uitdaaging of 'n keuse van twee.

  • Probeer knyp en bemors die vloer binne die wa.
  • Maak klaar en bemors die Casette kompartement na die tyd.

Thanks Paul

It is really not an issue to use a flame of some sort, i just thought perhaps there was a flat battery somewhere.

Hi Duncan

I purchased the caravan 2nd hand and received no manuals whatsoever. I am slowly learning all the in's and outs just by studying this forum.
