    on a campsite in Italy and when wife went to use the kitchen tap the water did not flow; hot or cold. Turned the bathroom tap on and water flowed in both kitchen and bathroom. I forgot to bring the manuals for the Mhome but am led to believe that the water pump is controlled by a micro switch at the taps.

    If this is true can I replace just the micro switch in the tap assembly or do I need to purchase a complete new tap?

    Does anybody know how I could get the correct bits here in Italy?

    I bought my microswitch on ebay, you might need to know which switch.

    Thank you @scotjimland. Took the first part oif the tap off to find that the brown wire has come away from where it was located. When I have built up the courage will go to the next stage and dismantle the tap and see if I can reconnect the wire. Thank you for the attachment.

    I also have a Knaus Sky Ti and this very same thing happened to mine.
    I had a very good independent engineer come out to fit a new microswitch and I watched him do the job.
    Unfortunately, the switch seemed to be glued in and, try as he might, he couldn't get it out.
    Instead, he did a bodge job by soldering the stray wire back on - it is still perfectly good almost a year later.
