Alternative Water Tank Filling

If you have a Whale or Truma type filler on your van and for any reason it goes faulty then without a filler cap into the tank can make it tricky to fill the fresh water tank.

If like mine you have a drain tap then there is a solution with the use of a hose tap adapter you can fill the tank through this.

When the tank is full it comes out the overflow so you know when to cut the supply – check you have an overflow that discharges under the van.

In fact this is quite a convenient way to fill the tank when filling at home prior for your travels.

Gas and Electric Labels

I often struggle to identify the gas taps and electric switches located at the back of the wardrobe especially when it is full of gear etc. The original labels are too small to read and at an awkward angle. The 13mm self adhesive letters I bought off eBay has solved the problem.

Even better if you can find some luminous lettering.

Simple anti theft precaution

A potential thief would have great difficulty driving away a motorhome with the drivers seat locked facing the opposite direction.

On the Peugeot there is a conveniently placed bracket that a padlock fits perfectly. There may be similarly conveniently placed holes on other makes.

Just another distraction that makes it a little bit more difficult for a thief to take your motorhome.
