    On my new van the tap on the sink, whilst working, is on occasions not operating the pump.
    It is obviously a dry switch, because if I fiddle turning tap on and off it soon comes on. It might just be through lack of use. Anyone any thoughts or ideas?

    before buying a new switch, check wiring connections and give the switch a spray of WD40

    I would say dont mess about too much with it..... just replace the micro switches in the tap. You may get them to work temporarily with adjustment and or wd40, but its sods law that when it fails again will be when your away from home and its not so easy to do or get parts. Spend £4 or £5 now and 10 minutes work and avoid the inconvenience of the tap not working whilst your on holiday
