    First time I have wintered my Chausson Flash 24 (2013). Only got it this summer. Book of words says to drain the hot water tank just flick up the lever next to the tank ............. No lever! Anyone know where they hide it?

    Hi There should be a lever usually couloured (yellow possibly) it, down at floor level that,s where mine is and on my last MH a Chausson Welcome 76, there as been other posts on here showing pics of the lever try searching old posts you may be able to find what it looks like. Pete

    Hi Pete, thanks for that. There was a pic in the instruction manual, but it wasn't where they indicated, have searched around the floor area, but no lever. Will try old posts as you suggest.

    Jenny and Mitch - wish it were that easy. Water heater easily found - lever not!

    Which model of water heater is it? On my AS Broadway the lever was at the back of the water heater itself, coloured blue (I think). Good luck with the search. (y) Cheers. Terran

    Steve says its under the seat on our chausson flash, but cant remember which and the MH is 10 miles away so can't look. but you could just turn the tap on till it drains making sure no gas on!

    Just been to the van to take a pic. This is what mine looks like. It's a British built van with Truma water heater. Hope it helps.

    Dont know if anyone else uses a Floe but just fitted one and was suprised the amount of water
    that was blown out of the system, it also blows the water out of the heater tank.

    I found mine under the fridge !!
    It was one of the first things I did when I got the new ( to us ) van.. Did not fancy scrabbling about in the cold half light of a winters day :D

    Thanks for that Taran, mine looks similar with the exception that the cold water pipe disappears under the draw below the bed without the illusive dump switch.
