Sounds like a dodgy thermostat.
I had a similar issue but with the electric heating of the water.
Apparently it has two thermostats, the first truns off the heat when the required temperature is reached, the second turn it back on when the heat drops below a certain level.
As regards getting it going, yes it does take 5 mins or so to kick in fully. If you have the same equipment level as my Benimar you should have a heat exchanger that works from the engine coolant system under one of the sofas, when you arrive on site you can use this to warm the van quickly, in fact you can use while you are driving along to pre-heat the van.
The thermostat for my room heating is to the right of the door about eye level, it is a brown dome shaped thing.
