    Hi, I'm Heather from St Annes in Lancashire. Myself and partner Jamie are semi-retired.

    We had a VW Camper for a few years but have upgraded this year to a motorhome. Without knowing a jot about different motorhomes we bought a Dethleffs and think we've probably landed on our feet!

    We've done a few trips so far and think we've got most things figured out... except the water pump! The instructions appear to have been translated from the German by someone who doesn't speak either language, so I'd be really interested to hear from anyone who has a Detheleffs and wouldn't mind me picking their brains.

    Welcome on board. Dethleffs are a good brand so you made a good choice. This site is full of information and good fun. Some of the information is actually useful.......
    you'll always get answers to questions - and joining is probably the best tenner you will spend for a long time, but it might be a good idea to post the question in a specific section for either the brand or motorhome chat with as much detail as you can to get a good answer as it might be missed here. Cheers:thumb:

    Nice vans, I have been looking for a Globebus i3 with rear lounge, quite hard to find.
    Even joined Dethleffs owners club, after paying annual subs, was unable to sign onto site, a few e-mails exchanged then nothing, no reply, nowt.
    :Angry::Angry:
    Enjoy your new van :Smile:

    ^^erm, that one! They're fab, aren't they? We're about to go out again (Sunday) and can't wait.

    To be clear, that's a Dethleffs Esprit RT6874 on a Renault Master 2.5dCi.

    I'd be everso grateful to know how to get the water pump switched on, though, Peter! I will also post in a more appropriate section.

    Thank you for the warm welcome, it's really appreciated. Looking forward to getting to know you! We are off to the Yorkshire Dales tomorrow; first trip with our 9-year-old goddaughter. Wellies ahoy!

    SNAP !

    On the unit above the door, press the top left button, so the display lights up.
    Then the water tank symbol. Third down on the left. Display should change to the clean tank symbol from the current time.

    Press the OK button on bottom right hand side. Symbol of a tap appears on bottom of display and pump is ready for use.

    Lift any tap and switch in tap will start the pump.

    Peter
