    Hi, looking on another forum and reading about draining water tanks. :Smile:

    Do you know " How to drain your tank " On our last van a Swift Kontiki the Drain tap was down the back of the tank and a nightmare to Open and to drain, the water heater a Carver you take the plastic plug out of it and its on the outside of the van and looks like this:


    The Plug screws out. So find your drain tap on / near / or in your water tank and Open it.Take the drain plug out the water heater Open taps and remove shower head and blow!!!:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1: And your system should be EMPTY. :Smile: Bob.

    The van we have now, :Smile: you remove the caps on top of the water tank put your hand inside and pull the plugs out ( we have two ).:BigGrin:

    The water heater / boiler is a truma that dumps the water this time of year. :Doh: And still has a valve that you can push down to empty and it all looks like this:

    So do you know how to empty yours ? if not ask............. someone will.:BigGrin: Bob.

    you aint kidding with the kontiki.....a real pain to reach.

    i found by slipping your left arm down the left hand rear corner of the tank you can reach the tap quite easily.

    took me two years to work that out :Doh:
