Hi All.

We have just joined the wonderful world of Geist having purchased a 2006 Xk 565. I was pleasantly surprised to find it has under floor heating. However, there are no instructions about using and maintaining it. Can anyone help?

I assume you have a gas heater below a cupboard with outlets all around the caravan near the floor. If this is the case let us know and I can help you.

Hi BobD. We have the gas heater with the outlets, too. Any information you can give would be useful.

With the under floor heater there seems to be a couple of containers in the wardrobe. One contains a yellowish fluid. Actually I'll have to check again to see what exactly is in the wardrobe! Not sure whether there is one or two containers.

Tim,

Are you saying you have a gas heater plus a separate underfloor heater?

I can help with the gas heater but I have never seen an underfloor heater.

Tim,

Did you need any help with the gas heater? This has vents that circulate air all around the floor of the caravan so I have no idea why one would also add an under floor heater. The caravan will roast just with the gas heater if you want it to.

Hi, we have just picked up our new (to us) XK 550 and that has the underfloor heating as well. The dealer we bought it from couldn't get it working but I just wondered if anyone else has experience of this, which I think was an optional extra when bought new? We haven't had a chance to try it out yet but will post when we do.

I too am in the UK.....I have heard of quite a few non-working underfloor heating problems. Mainly on Adria's but general feeling is that the elements breakdown over time....

Not ideal - my xk630 has warm air from the air con and then additional truma blown air heating as we rally in the winter. It has the underfloor heating 240v only but I have never used it.
