Hi Guys

If you're staying on a campsite just fill up when you arrive. If not you can always find a tap & fill in a garage as long as you have a long hosepipe.

By the way what part of Gloucestershire are you from, we live in the Forest of Dean

Hi you will always find somewhere to fill, but you may need lots of hose. We use a lot of water (3 women in the RV:RollEyes:) I hate moving the RV once parked up so I have four 20m roll flat hoses and a 50m garden hose along with a BIG bag of every connector you've ever seen. Its common for me to use every foot of hose I have:Eeek: Go and buy some more hose, you can't have too much::bigsmile:

Hi go on ebay and buy a stand pipe for £45.00.You will never have a water shortage again.
They are easy to use and there are plenty of hydrants in the uk and europe.
You should have a meter on it so you can pay the waterboard for what you use:ROFLMAO:
I have used stand pipes all my working life (26 years) with out any problems, though make shore you turn off before you unscrew the stand pipe NOT the other way around or you and everyone with in 20 - 30 feet will get very very wet.
