When you buy a caravan expect most to be able to use the opportunities the caravan is sold, such that you can drive with the caravan gas operation. Gas operation of the refrigerator provide the best cooling effect.
When driving with the fridge on gas operation are the gas flame blown out while driving in some caravans. There are some indications for each of the 2 leading manufacturers of absorbent fridges. If the gas flame being blown out nothing happens, due to the gas supply disconnects (Solenoid valve / heat protection) – However, please note on the refrigerator loses cooling effect.
There are many theories about the cause of the gas flame being blown out while driving, in winter is often vinterafdækninger mounts on both refrigerator grates, why the problem does not occur in winter when vinterafdækninger
is mounted. In summer you can use the lower refrigerator grate when driving with the fridge on gas operation, but use only the lower. The lower winter covers as used in the summer should be removed as soon as you are promoting on dinistationen / campsite.
The refrigerator is vented via the 2 external ventilation grates, where the lower grille pulls fresh air into, and when the fresh air coming from the lower ventilation grill heats up, after which the heated air coming out of the top vent grill (called chimney effect).
Using the refrigerator in winter:
If you use the refrigerator, when the outside temperature is below 8 ° C, should be fitted vinterafdækning on ventilationsgitrene. Winter cover protects your refrigerator against the cold air.
Some caravan dealers inform their clients who have problems with the gas flame is blown out while driving, that they must mount a winter cover on the bottom refrigerator grate when towing a camping gas operation in summer, and a winter cover is not included with the purchase of caravan. If you fit winter covers on “summer” you should have your dealer, To confirm this is according to the requirements you are mounting a vinterafdæknings grate (only the lower summer) when driving with the fridge on gas operation.
It is not clear from the caravan manual to be used winter covers on the bottom refrigerator grill in the summer when driving with the fridge on gas operation.
Some Danish caravan dealer reports caravan owners who have problems with the gas flame goes out during a run, that one must not run with the fridge on gas operation while driving, and thus their problem solved.
There are also gasflammebeskytter sold as an option, you may wonder why such a small cousin is not mounted from the start when building caravan. Most campers expect when purchasing caravan, allow its use 12 volt and gas operation of the refrigerator while driving with caravan.
The two leader in the production of absorbent refrigerators are Dometic and Thetford, producers supply bla. Their refrigerators for the respective factories which builds caravans. Cooling munity producers have some requirements for installing the refrigerator, and caravan manufacturers must comply with these requirements when installing the refrigerator in the caravan, otherwise it may not work as it should, and the warranty may want. lapse.
The cause of your refrigerator gas flame blows out when driving can bla. Be:
– Improper installation of the caravan factory.
– Too much air enters and blows the gas flame out.
– Some would say it depends on which side your refrigerator is placed in, but experience shows it is not fair, the problem occurs regardless of which side your refrigerator is located in - Like caravan owners with roof ventilation also experienced the problem.
Many refrigerators are mounted so, that the lower ventilation grill is positioned higher than the floor of the caravan, typically due to the wheel arch.
When the caravan factory install the refrigerator at the wheel arch and ventilation grate is raised above the floor of the caravan, must be drilled in 40 mm hole in the caravan floor cf.. refrigerator manufacturers. The hole in the bottom is “alone to remove any. unburned gas behind the fridge, as the gas is heavier than air,, therefore, any. explored the burnt gas will be at floor level. Caravans which has lower ventilation grating equal to floor level, need not have a hole in the bottom, due to the lower ventilation grille would act as ventilation of the refrigerator and remove unburned gas.
The problem is, the caravan factories may not fully comply with the installation requirements from refrigerator manufacturers. Try to gauge whether the hole your caravan is at the bottom is 40 mm, Maybe you measure 56 mm long cable since heat is used because it has the material in advance.
The gas flame blown out by driving gas operation, might be due to the hole in the base is too great, and thereby comes form their own air / air up to the gas flame being blown out.
