    Bought an Autoquest 100 (55 reg) 2 weeks ago and took it out to play over the weekend. Really happy with everything apart from not being able to drain the grey water tank . I've read all the bumf which tells me the drain valve is near the rear door. I must be missing something blindingly obvious because I can't see it . Can somebody please point me in the right direction?

    Just look for a grey corrugated hose running to a clipped valve tap slightly to one side of the rear door. It should be obvious (running from the grey water tank)

    My present one is a pull lever in the garage...

    A Hobby I had there was a little round hole by the step on the inside..... you could open it without going outside... (Handy for emptying while on the move.. :wink:)..

    welcome from me as as well, beware it is 10 years old, plenty of time to have been modified from the manual

    our valve in garage snapped its cable, we now have a hand valve under MH

    as suggested look underneath, have you got a toilet cassette?? if not and you have a black tank be more careful both will look very similar from underneath, contents will be more conclusive (y)

    hopefully it will be blindingly obvious when you do find it

    edit - you could always contact previous owner or dealer

    You have come to the right forum because if this lot can't find your grey waste dump valve nobody can.;)

    Welcome, I am new myself and got no end of help with our teathing problems. Great forum this, someone knows everything...
    Follow the grey corrugated pipe from the waste tank, bound to be a tap on the end.

    The reason that I couldn't find the valve/tap is that it isn't there . Water goes down plug hole , water hits floor and doesn't bother hanging around in the waste water tank. Thanks for the welcome and all the help
