    I'm new to all this and doing my best as a dumbo computer user but here we go!

    I was given a tip to join this community as I have a few little snags with my much loved Burstner Mobil, a G reg!! I love it. The washroom tap is driving me mad as it drips and we can't find a washer!! It might be the end of the road for the tap! As it's so old we are having trouble as it is obsolete. Does anyone know of a contact worth trying?

    Their web site is a bit long winded as you have to look at the catalogue online, find the part number and then look it up in another section.. Best just send for a free catalogue to come in the post..

    But !!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you can take a picture ( of the tap !! ) and email it to me ( straightfour@aol.com ) I have a couple of older type taps left over from when I did a refurb on our previous van

    Amazingly Brian the taps in question are not like any of those on any of the links !

    But ... Looking at the pictures I believe the taps in question are rebuildable and rely on o rings rather than washers to seal with :thumb:

    I know who gave you the tip to join this site Camper Sue!

    A warning to all you dodgy Funsters out there...

    Help this lady with courtesy and proper behaviour or my people will be onto you... she is family ok?

    JJ :Cool:

    PS. Is it a micro switch operating tap? (are there wires running to the tap under the kitchen top?)
