    Hi All I have a new Sunseeker 140 with a tip up sink over a bench toilet
    Could someone tell me a little about the sink? Let me explain although being tip up it has a plug! and if it is tipped up before all the water drains it runs out all over the toilet! The tip up sinks I have had in the past puts all the water down the back.

    We also have an Elddis as far as i know you are supposed to drain the water through the plug hole. The dribble of water left goes into a gutter over the top of the toilet when you tip the sink up.

    tip up sink

    Hi Shezza.
    We have an Elddis autoquest.
    we keep a flat sponge in the sink and once it has drained
    give it a wipe as there may a little water left, the rv may not
    always be level
    the rest of the water runs down the back when it is tipped up.
    All the best.
    Jim.

    When we picked up our 115.. The dealer pointed this out to us to watch the water as you tip.
    We usually soak up before closure.

    The sink in our 115 was a nightmare from day one as it never dropped to the horizontal correctly and then when you filled it up with water it fell off:Rofl1::Rofl1::Sad: After a few months something metallic was heard to drop from behind which turned out to be the nut on the back of the retaining screw (the screw about which the sink pivots) this in turn necessitated the removal by yours truly of the entire back wall assembly whereupon the hole in the sink was 'relocated' and everything fitted and tightened correctly - sink now works to the same standard as yours ie: pours water everywhere when you tip it up.... The flat sponge is a must have accessory :Smile: and a further trick is to empty the sink thru the plughole, tip up 45 degrees and listen for the remaining water to drain, the final 45 degrees to close should be done pretty smartish and there you have it - only a small amount of water on the floor!

    Forgive me for gloating over you lot with new vans but our 2003/4 Autoquest 100 has a tip up sink without a plug hole. Tipping it sends all the water down the back with no spillage. Let's hear it for the old ones :Laughing:

    Tip up sink mod.

    Elddis still using the same tip up sink in my Autoquest 100 in 2011 so have made a close fitting blade out of hard plastic siliconed to the back edge of the sink. ( you can fit it easily when the sink is tipped up) No more need for the sponge!

    :Rofl1: Well yo think you've got it tough, My 1983 Holdworth Bedford CF had a tip up bucket and when you finished with the bucket you'd throw the contents out of the door and hope no-one was walking by.

    No water on the floor though...........Griff....:thumb:

    Wake up at the back there. This is an old thread and my post was November 2009 when we still had the Elddis not the Burstner :BigGrin: Of course the Burstner has a conventional sink with plug hole and no need to tip up :BigGrin:

    Listen smart arse sonny, some of the best threads are old threads. Don't you go knocking old threads or they'll come and bite you. Where would you be today if some old thread hadn't worked their fingers to the bone for you.

    PAH !
