Recommended Posts

Hi All



Just wondering if anyone has had problems with Caps splitting on the diesel Heater tank.



If so, what did you do for a replacement please.



Look forward to your responses

G`day Donna & Al


Welcome to the KOG forum.


How old is your diesel heater?


You could try ringing Kedron.They may have one in spares.Alternatively they can point you in the right direction. :rolleyes:


Cheers

Hi Rick.



We have already contacted Kedron, they want $45.00 for a cap. Just trying to source it from somewhere else. Van is 2.5 years old



Thanks for your assistance

Just googled 'diesel heater fuel tank cap'

RV Parts Express page came up........frigging hell they want $56........ better get the one from Kedron.

As your van is only 'young' I would speak nicely (not that you haven't) to Ashley & as this item isn't what I would call a popular/regular consumable item, he may be able to 'wangle' one from Dometic for you as in a warranty claim.

It is unusual for a cap to split..........have you been over tightening it?

Just check to see if the cap is the same size as the caps on the plastic jerry cans, might be a cheaper option.

Thanks every one. It's in the sun all day, and unfortunately we had just been to Kedron, five weeks ago, and now just noticed it split. Just thought someone else may have replaced one.

we had a tamper proof metal cap fitted when we picked up our van


it has been out in weather ever since due to extensive traveling 2.5 years


the cap on the tank looks brand new


this may be a help in the future

Our cap has also split in a number of places, in fact it seems that it is just breaking down. I believe it is a problem with the quality of material used in manufacture. Many of the Camec products fitted in our van that are exposed to sunlight have deteriorated. It appears that they haven’t been manufactured to cope with the UV level in OZ.

We have been on the road since the end of Feb so I was forced to carry out repairs with a new product called "Rapid Fix" which comprises a powder and a liquid like super glue but when mixed with the powder they claim it is similar to welding the plastic. So far so good. It isn’t a problem with overtightening.

The price quoted by Camec is in line with all their prices - way over the top.

I will be looking for a replacement cap when we return home in Dec so it would be good to learn where a suitable cap can be purchased at a reasonable price. Perhaps overseas sources may be an answer as they have a lot of diesel heaters in their vehicles in USA and Europe.

Has anyone tried the power tool (chain saw etc) specialty shops, they just might be able to assist...

My diesel heater tank cap split just recently so I glued the split and it is perfect again.
