    No need - locate the tank (should be under a seat or similar) You will see a drain tap near the bottom, turn that and refill - all will be well with the world!:thumb:

    Dont forget you may have to turn the tap and press the reset button on the valve.

    No auto dump valve on the boiler, it is a manual lift up tap, can be found under the dinette seat near the water pump.. Assuming its same build as my old 2005.

    Water tank is below floor level and has a blue drain tap on the outside of the van below the side skirt, cant remember which side.

    I get back from Benidorm on 29th and will be over to Wednesbury that weekend.. Need any help let me know....
