    We have just driven from mid Wales to Blackpool, the fresh water was showing 25% just topped up to 100% and now the pump runs on, is it an airlock if so how do I cure it. All advice would be grateful. Thanks.

    Check you haven't left a tap open anywhere and look around for any possible leaks.

    Hi you have either a leak -look for water in or under van :BigGrin: or the seals on the pump have gone :thumb: new seal set or new pump -seals are about 15 quid ish new pump from around 50 quid up --a fifty quid pump will more than likely do the job instead of replacing like for like.
    Assuming you have opened the tap slowly to relaese any air out of system :BigGrin:

    Try giving pump a tap with a hammer, maybe the pressure switch is stuck
