    Hi All

    They say that you never stop learning, and our new (to us) Laika H710 is giving me another education moment... I can't get the water filler cap off !!!

    The cap (the bit with in/out on it) turns about 1/8th turn in either direction but otherwise won't budge.

    I know I'm generally really ham-fisted, so have been desperately trying to avoid brute force & therefore breaking the damn thing in the process...

    So, am I just being a wimp and not turning the cap hard enough, or is there a trick/technique to opeing them?

    Cheers

    Sorry to be a pain, but has anyone got any ideas?
    We're looking to go away next weekend, and I really need to get the fresh water tank opened, cleaned and drained beforehand...
    Any suggestions gratefully received...
    Thanks
    Steve

    Steve, just an idea but turn it to the left, til it stops then try pulling, it may have a seal thats a tight fit, best of luck

    Thanks Eric...

    Phew... I just managed to get it undone...:) :):):) It appears it was just jammed...
    Stupidly, the cap has to be turned left (just as you suggested Eric) toward the direction that it says "in" :(:(
    Anyway, Milton fluid has gone in & cleaning underway...
    Thanks again
    Steve
