    Mine recently went in Spain, if you look on the Elektroblok you will see a brown fuse with Pompe to signify it is the fuse for that item. Had mine changed at Hymer Gandia but unfortunately they only supply the Hymer branded one. Going to buy a spare when back in the UK.

    When you say it's not working, is it making no noise, or is it just not pumping? Just make sure first that your dump valve hasn't operated and dumped all of your fresh water. We have had really frosty mornings lately and the valve will operate in these conditions to prevent freezing damage..

    Just a thought.

    Thanks for the quick reply I've found the problem pumps are working fine it's the little switch inside the tap that was sticking all sorted now thanks

    Worth carrying a spare switch as well as a spare pump if you spend much time abroad or in remote areas.

    As a short term fix I used when we had the same problem (well similar anyway) if say the faulty tap is the kitchen (ours was) open tap nothing happens, open bathroom tap as little as possible just enough to move switch, water comes out of kitchen

    dribble at worst in bathroom. Very small waste, problem sorted till it can be sorted properly

    It might only work with pressurised systems though (y)
