    On my far superior well built Besacar motorhome I have sprung a leak. Don't worry Terry the floors still dry. But the hose from the tap to the boiler fits in to a t piece and the hot hose has due to some rubbing got a little hole in it. I need new pipe and connectors but can't seem to find them?

    Being a Nurse, Intend to operate on the problem adn re-route it doing a better job than the original.... any one know where I can get the hose and t piece please? I have to of course dismantle the bed to carry out this task.


    Oh buy the way, Im too busy to call Glen from Jon cross :Wink:

    A picture of said items would help no end as there must be hundreds of different T connectors.:Wink:

    Thanks Wasp, there just the kiddies. Im after a two way divider apparantly, located on ebay, but maybe Ill give Glen from John Cross a ring in the morning and order it from there.


    Thanks for all your help guys, and BTW im away this weekend in Glossop area, so if you see me leaking water, it's not my waste left open, its just clean warm natural water so hold your horses.

    Osmotics UK will have a few 1000 likely as they supply me with plenty of them:Smile:

    If your pipes are 14mm outside diameter Paul, you can use domestic push fit couplings from Screwfix.
    They are cheaper because they have no mention of motorhome on the packet!:BigGrin:
