    Have just bought a hymer 644 swing and tried the water and hot air systems before we set off for home in France everything worked fine. On route we found that the water system
    stopped working to the toilet and taps,but found that there is an overflow from the trauma boiler and when we opened taps or flushed toilet the water came from the overflow. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced a similar problem.Any thoughts would be appreciated
    Thanks

    This 'overflow', is it on the van side, a small outlet next to the Truma air inlet???

    Hi
    The tube exits the van just under where the heater is situated.Could it be an air lock?

    Has the anti frost valve opened? this dumps the water to avoid frost damage.You can simply pull the lever up -usually red or yellow-- it should stay up but if the fuse has blown it will remain down/open once you let go --of course I could be on a different thought wave :Smile:Just re read your post and it does not sound like dump valve but worth a check :Wink:

    It sounds to me like your anti-frost valve has opened and dumped the contents of the boiler. When you switch on a tap the pump starts and pumps the water straight out. It happened to us in the middle of summer when it got accidentally knocked by a tin of beans (ours is in a kitchen cupboard).
