    look on your pump.. It will have the makers name and model number on it ( unless it is a submersible in which case any thing will go as an emergency unit ) :thumb:

    Just an after thought.. Unless you are going somewhere pretty weird ( Tibet ? :Wink: ) there is always somewhere within 30 miles or so you can just buy a replacement from a caravan / motorhome store .. Wellllllll.. lets say the odds are in your favour anyway :thumb:

    Don't be over concerned, as already suggested by Jaws.
    Our driveaway awning got trashed last winter in Spain, so we had a new one delivered, from a UK company, to site. All you need, anywhere, is access to the web.

    I have had two water pumps stop working on me. First was on a Hymer and we were on a campsite in Arundel. Managed to get to Premier Motorhomes and get replacement to fit same day. Second one was on the Laika when we were on a CL local to us. Tried local caravan dealers but no one had a 30psi pump on the shelf. Ended up getting one on internet delivered in a couple of days. I vowed to carry a spare one as the night without it was difficult.
    Needless to say I havent got a spare one yet but hopefully this one will last a while.

    I agree with Jaws, but if you do carry a spare I guarantee you will never need it :BigGrin:

    It is handy to carry a spare, most are submersible which are around £20. Carry spares pumps, bulbs and fuses (incl glass) some gaffa tape and UV Stable repair tape is a must. Takes up only a small box, have a few jubilee clips, screws and so on there as well - you will be covered for most occurences!

    Also in your roadside kit, carry high viz vests (£1 each from pound stores) and a TARP! Everyone forgets the tarp......cheap plastic tarp will shelter your family from wind/rain/sun when waiting for recovery and also give you something to kneel on when the ground is wet and you want to change a tyre or similar!
