    Cannot find a frost safety water valve in our new 610, does anyone know if they are still fitted into Chausson motorhomes now?

    Our new 718 has a little hole in the floor adjacent to the Truma and the valve is in there.

    Thanks Bobpalt I will have a look today, hoping it is there.
    Spidey, it is a valve that automatically opens when the temperature reaches app. 4 c so that the water does not stay in the boiler and freeze.

    There are different types depending on the boiler
    Electrical safety/drain valve (red button) as on page 6 Here.
    Frost control (blue button) as shown Here.
    Manual (yellow) lever as shown in the attached diagram.

    Thanks GJH that's excellent info, ours is the manual yellow lever valve.
    This forum has a lot of knowledge within its members, I am not a forum person but will certainly stay with this one, thanks again.

    Our Flash 10 has the yellow valve for manual draining and also has frost automatic draining.
