    Can anyone tell me which water tank is on a 2014 Autotrail, is it with or without overflow. I have just bought a Heoswater universal connecter so suits both systems.
    Thanks

    When you filled it up before did it come back out of the filler neck? if it did you don't have an overflow

    I think that the advice is that if you are not sure you should buy one that works without an overflow (I think this is what I ended up with and later discovered I do have an overflow).

    I have to rate it as one of the better 'gadgets' I have bought for the van.

    Same here :) I bought the blue one instead of the white one :) It works perfectly well though and I agree it is one of the better gadgets :)

    I have an overflow, but if I am are filling from a high pressure supply, and if not watching.. it comes out the filler and also floods underneath the van o_O

    so for that reason if I were buying, I'd buy the one for NO Overflow.

    I have been thinking someone must make a proper filler cap for this tank......... I wish I had known. The universal now covers both a vented and un-vented tank, do I assume that if you set it up as an un-vented that once the tank fills it in effect stops the water with some built in valve?

    Please don't all laugh out loud at me, but where does it overflow from? :) My tank has no over flow, I cant see an outlet in this cap

    My inlet pipe often airlocks and therefore blows water back out, would this still blow back out of the 'secret' overflow? o_O

    The vented tank filler simply has a seal and the non vented has the seal removed so it will leak out of the attachment point

    Ebay seller picture is non too clear but basically you remove the seal for a non vented tank
