    Our van is basically the same as yours.

    We use a 25 litre jerry can rather than an Aquaroll but shouldn't make too much difference. The lead on the submersible pump easily reaches the socket next to the water inlet. The hose we use pushed onto the pump is about 2 metres and is plenty long enough.

    Have to straighten the hose out now and again but can always get it to start off resting in a bottom corner.

    When the water level is lower I normally tilt/lift the jerry can to keep the pump submerged but that's not a problem because it's light enough by that time.

    Possibly it's easier with a white jerry can, which is translucent, than with an Aquaroll as I can see where the pump is.

    No :Smile: There's a knack to getting the front back on when it's been off but if it's solid it shouldn't rattle.

    drive safely, and carry your passengers safely . better to stop . walking around could be classed as travelling in a dangerous manner . anyway whats wrong with a plastic tube through the floor for peeing.
    like a german mate says cant beat rain on a motiorway you can open your black tanks while you keep driving. not too good for m,bikes gets abit slippy. :Rofl1::Rofl1:
