    Hello Ladies and Gentelmen,
    sorry to be a bother but I recently purchased a swift conqueror 550 lux 2nd hand. Being new to caravans I didnt think of asking how to empty the tank (stupid I know). this morning I tried doing an internet search which produced no results, any one on here have a dummies guide how to do it?

    kind regards

    Craig

    Hi Craig

    No personal experience, but I see you can download a handbook from the Swift website for several years' different models (http://www.swiftleisure.com/caravans/handbooks).

    If it's anything like emptying the grey water tank on a motorhome there will either be a tap either at one side or rear of the vehicle, or a handle that you pull to open a valve.

    Good luck with it

    try looking underneath your van on both sides or the rear failing that try looking in a locker, we have an american unit and the last one was in an outside locker, this one is underneath not far from the rear of the van on our unit it has a big grey screwcap fitted that you unscrew then fit the hose on and pull a little 'T' handle (if you find same dont pull the handle too hard or it will come off)

    Hi Craig
    I had a very similar modeL of caravan I believe that is the twin wheel model and there is'nt a waste water tank it just runs out into a bucket or wastemaster. the outlet pipes are on the off side just behind the wheels

    As you are new to the scene I am just wondering ...................................

    Please do not think I am taking the wee wee , but it is the grey water you want to know about and not the black ?

    Grey is easy, as there is no tank.. You will need a waste water container of some sort and a wee bit of hose as intimated by Alan :Smile:

    Black has its own mystic and needs slightly more hygienic ( !!! LOL !! :Rofl1: ) disposal methods.
    That has its own tank behind a door (usually with lock that is opened with a key with the word "Thetford" on it

    shucks never clicked it was a caravan when i replied earlier, look for small outlet either near the wheels or at the rear if it has rear bathroom that you attach a pipe to and run into a wastemaster
