Default Willerby Westmorland 2005 approx

Hi Iíve just bought a 2 bedroom Willerby Westmorland that is around 13 years old. In master bedroom there is a heater switch but no wall heater. The bed is on a plinth and has a vent in it and the base has Ltd of little holes in it. Is this some kind of under bed heating? If so, is there another switch anywhere, as wall switch doesnít appear to do anything when turned on? Does anyone have the same van or know the answer to my question. The van did not come with any manuals.

I don’t know the model but from a google search it looks like it came with just a gas fire in the lounge area. There are no refs to heaters in the bedroom.
The bed base with holes in it is a fairly common feature in ‘vans and is for ventilation to underside of mattress. Lots of the fixed bench seats are the same. As to what the switch in the bedroom is for, sorry but cannot help with that. Do you know an electrician who can come and do a check for you?

Maybe it's an isolation switch. Try to switch it off and then try all sockets and lights if they don't switch on, that is what it is. Just a guess but our van is full of isolation switches.

We've got a Willerby Westmorland as well.

The switch controls a small (700 Watt?) heater in the base of the wardrobe. If you picture yourself lying in bed, there's a vent at the bottom of the wardrobe (floor level) near where your feet are. There's a similar one in the base of the cupboard in the second bedroom as well, with the switch high up on the left just inside the door. The heaters are pretty quiet, which is why you can't hear anything when you switch it on. They are also pretty useless!

We've got a portable 2kW convector heater, which we have against the wall just inside the 'front door'. If both bedrooms are in use, we leave this heater on all night, leave the bedroom doors open, and shut the door to the bathroom and through to the kitchen.
