    Hi All
    Can anyone help me with the positioning of the draining valve under the
    wardrope in my autoquest 120
    I drained the water off for the winter but cant remember the positioning before
    I fill the tank.
    I tried the manual that came with it but I'am none the wiser.
    Maybe there is a web site with pictures:Eek!:
    Hope you can help.
    All the best
    Jim.

    Start filling, if water falls out it's the wrong way:thumb:


    :Blush:I had this with our RV last winter, I was merrily filling and started thinking, mmm this is taking it's time, then was hit by the I can hear running water moment, and sure enough I'd got in a muddle and left one of the drain taps open:Doh:

    If the handle is in line with the pipe it is open. If the handle points across the pipe it is closed.

    If it is like our Autoquest 100 then it needs to be horizontal to be closed. Vertical is open and will let the water drain out.

    As Dodgey says, if water falls out it's the wrong way - or a bit off the horizontal.

    GJH is right if it is in the straight up posion (vertical) the water will run straight out it needs to be in the horizontal.HTH

    Thanks forall for the advice.
    It works if you bring the switch towards you but
    not all the way down or it runs out when you try to pump hot water:thumb:
    once again thanks.
    Jim
