Morco Water Heaters…..what’s the alternative?!

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

You may remember some time ago we shared a blog about the nationwide shortage of Morco Water Heaters…..sadly there is still no availability of these boilers; it’s unlikely that there will be any in circulation for the foreseeable future!

However……it’s not all bad news because here at the caravan accessory shop we are able to offer an alternative to every Morco boiler that was on the market:

The Bosch W1359 is an ideal replacement for the Morco D61e and the D61b. With similar dimensions and same flue size you can replace your old Morco with this model. The great news is that it comes complete with fitting kit so there’s no need for additional purchases (unless you need a new flue which is the same one as you would used for the Morco).

If you’re looking for an alternative to the Morco G11 water heater then we have the Bosch W11. Once again it is a like for like alternative with similar dimensions and same flue diameter and comes complete with fitting kit. If you do require a flue kit you can find it here

Finally……
For those of you that are looking for a room sealed appliance which can be sited in any location including narrow boats, trailers, shepherds huts and horseboxes look no further than the Widney Slimtronic Water Heater, it’s the equivalent to the Morco F11 EL which as you guessed is also out of stock until further notice! With this model there is the option of a horizonatal or vertical flue. Depending on which water heater you are replacing you may also need to use a mounting bracket which simply allows alignment of the water heater with an existing flue opening.

The country may be down on Morco Water Heaters but here at Caravan Accessory Shop we are most definitely not out!

6kg Calor Lite Propane Propane Gas bottle.

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

You may be aware that some time ago Calor announced the phasing out of the Calor Lite Gas bottles.
Following concerns about the longevity of the current model with a higher than expected number failing routine quality inspections they have decided not to invest anymore money into the product. Instead they are coming up with a completely new bottle!

…..So what does that mean for us who have the bottles???

*Caravan Accessory Shop do still have stock of the 6kg lite bottles so no need to worry just yet! (Available in store only).

*If there comes a time that you are unable to swap for a 6kg lite you will be given a normal 6kg propane which can be exchanged back to a 6kg lite when there is availability.

*All existing 6kg lite customers will be able to swap their bottles for the new bottle once it comes to market.

***Original 6 Lite Cylinder Refill Agreement (sometimes known as a 167) is required or alternative receipt or proof of 6kg Lite purchase.
