    Hi all,

    Looking for help and advice on a water system for my Mercedes 310D Elorcruise motorhome.

    The motorhome has a kitchen fitted with a sink and a bathroom with shower, toilet and sink. There is also a water heater.

    I need to add a water pump, accumulator, filter, onboard tanks and level guages.

    Anyone got any diagrams how this all fits together?

    Thanks in advance.

    Forgive me if it's a silly question, but if you have sinks, showers, taps, toilet etc, how come you don't already have tanks, pump etc?

    By the way, could you elaborate on the "Elorcruise" make/model as I'm not sure it's a common one and might help with what to do next.

    You may also have spotted that you are now in read-only mode, so will need to join to carry on posting...

    Cheers

    tank filter pump accumulator non return valve before the water heater in that order if you meant a water pure filter that goes inline before the kitchen tap or on a seperate tap
    i wouldnt bother with gauges none of them are accurate just have a bigger fresh tank than waste that way when the sink stops draining you know the waters nearly finished
    gauges were the one thing i consider i wasted money on during my build

    Quite possibly like most caravans and some older Motorhomes with an outside water barrel and submersible pump controlled off microswitches.
