    Cant see what possible use it could have on the cassette.

    If the norrowest part is around the size of the casstte spout then it may be a filler funnel for the fresh water tank...about the same size....when/if you use a container to fill the tank rather than a hose/watering can.

    I stand corrected Jim.

    Must be for people with shaky hands as i never needed one to pour blue through the emptying spout.

    Probably cos they come attached to the cassette and end up going down the drain when it gets emptied - well that's what happened to the one on our works van :rolleyes:

    Talking of which, how many of you will own up to losing a spout cap down the drain? Did you retrieve it?

    For most of us, a cap down the drain would be a problem so perhaps yet another addition to that spares box/locker.

    Er - yep! Again the one on the works van. I bought the one in from my van at home the next day to replace it as we weren't due to go away for a couple of weeks.

    I have to confess that I was involved in the loss of both the filler extension and the cap. It doesn't seem to have got me out of toilet emptying duty with the guys at work though. I'll have to come up with some other cunning plan.
