    Another dumb question from me i am afraid! Is there some accessory available that fits over the external drain tap so you can use a hose to a drain hole on site?

    Depends what size outlet pipe, but whatever siZe you should be able to get relevant waste pipe connections/ reducer from any good DIY store / Screwfix / Toolstation. (y)

    That'll be 40mm then! Also try pond/aquarium suppliers.

    I tried that with mine....after dumping 20 gallons of shite on the road I still had to stop to open the grey tap to wash out the black waste valve with the 25 gallons of grey water.

    Those cheapskates at Rapido, I don't know! You get a full 50mm of fast dumpiness with a cheapo Chausson! LOL:reel:

    Of course you can make something up-but on sites that cater for motorhomes the general idea is that you drive over the dump point and open valve. (y)

    The clue's in the name.....
    They cater for their core membership!

    They certainly don't understand the likes of us, a quick read of the motorhome reviews in the magazine shows that!!!!

    Even on upgraded sites rather than put a gully across the road they added another grate & lid instead. Yet still it is often difficult to get over the grate and often there is only one and on the wrong side meaning you have to go the wrong way on a one way system.
    Grate lids are often not put back properly (leaving the handle stuck up) creating a trip hazard and just the fact that elderly users have to bend down and lift one off is bad enough!

    We use a washing machine waste hose, purchased from Homebase, the rubber bit fits perfectly over the grey waste tap.

    Whilst having a pop at the CC does anyone else have problems with the height of the automatic barriers? I find that they are too low given that the drivers window doesn't go all the way down. I always have to undo my seatbelt and almost get out of my seat to get to the damn things.
