    Can I dip my finger in your sherbert fountain.. ? Bruv.. :thumb::BigGrin:

    OK, But don't tell no one else... I think you have seen it before.. :Cool:

    Just buy an Whale submersible pump from Ebay and a cigarette lighter plug... few foot of pipe..and an inline switch...

    Pipe on whale gusher.... inline switch if your not near your cigarette lighter socket. to turn on and off.. (I`ve got one in the boot)...

    Chuck the pump in your water container,,,, tother end of hose in your fresh water fill orifice in M/H or RV plug in switch on and transfer water from container...

    Then if you run out of water, you don't have to run a hose or move the motor... :thumb:

    Well it has worked for me lots of times, when I have not been near a tap... :thumb:

    making your own is so much cheaper than the whale superfill sold to do the same job. mind you i picked one up some time ago for under £10 unused on eBay. no way was i going to spend nearly £50 for a submersible pump, some hose, wire and a plug. they must think were all mugs:Doh:

    Our elddis had a 12v socket next to the fresh water filling point and came with a pump like Peter sells, so when we changed to the Adria I took the pump and bought a 12v extension and bobs your uncle or should that be Mo's your grandfather :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Promise I won't tell anyone about your invention

    watering can gets my vote!

    Sledge hammer and nuts comes to mind! A B&Q plastic watering can does the job beautifully and cheaply and I never flatten a battery.......

    Similar here with our Autoquest. The pump didn't accompany it to the breaker's yard :BigGrin: I just extended the lead as the Burstner has Hella sockets like the Autoquest external one was :thumb:

    We have just bought a Hymer caravan and this has a direct water connection to the internal tank, a proper electrical socket and a switch all inside a neat little box on the side of the van. In a nice plastic bag is a submersible pump with the requisite water and electrical connections, don't know the make and its raining so can't be bothered to look.

    As I don't have a water roller container thingy I will continue with the watering can :Smile:

    Think of everything the Germans !!!

    I was going to say make sure you switch off the gas before you go in the shower but I just knew someone would not find it funny and complain so I did not (oh bugger I did):Rofl1:
