    Our Lunar Telstar Motorhome has an exterior socket for a 12v plug (2pin) for a submersible pump to fill the main freshwater tank - and the cap that protects that socket has broken up. Where might I find a new cap, or any ideas how to make one that would stay fixed when we are on the road?! Any ideas please?

    Thanks for that - I will see if it would work!! Looks promising - and I'd not have thought of looking at that.

    years ago when i had a caravan the cover u are on about was always snapping off so after about 3 replacements i ended up getting the top off a bottle of coke cutting its depth down and used that for years.

    best solution so far, presume 2 pin fitting is same as mine, naff fitting on very expensive vehicles.

    I will continue looking for the real thing - yes, for a 2 pin socket the cap was really cheap and nasty.
    I'm working on a temporary (I hope!) cap using a cut down metal screw cap off a wine bottle, just working out how to fix it so it doesnt' go awol as soon as we remove it to use the socket again.....nearly done.
    We are quite near a caravan shop - Davan - and their engineers can be very helpful!
