I'm beginning to think these are an urban myth :rolleyes:

Does anyone know if a) they actually exist and b) where to get one from?

I'm looking for a HEOS filler cap that fits a Fiamma fresh water inlet:

The HEOS has three lugs but the Fiamma inlet only has two.

Brand not important, only saying HEOS because I don't know who else makes these :X3:

Never come across one I'm afraid but could you not get an extra fiamma cap, remove the lock barrel and fit a hose adaptor to it. The earliest Heos ones looked as though thats what they had done.

You could try what I now do - I originally bought a HEOS one for my camper but it just didn't like it, something to do with the way the inlet pipe goes into the tank I think, so instead I used the 'hook' off a coat hanger and taped it to the hose pipe once I'd worked out the best spot so that the pipe is held in place with the hook which goes into the recessed channel inside the filler aperture and stays put even when the water is high pressure - it means I can fill the tank on my own whilst hubby empties the toilet rather than it taking both of us (one to hold the hose in and one to turn the tap on), I've tried all sorts of other methods to get the hose to stay put but none of them worked consistently and usually meant it got 'kicked out' with the water pressure and I got a soaking!

many many years! since I was a kid
when you buy a heos filler, it comes with 3 different collars to fit the different filler necks

Another genius idea, I like this! Free is always good (y)

But :rolleyes:

I'm not sure now, as I've seen @Minxy Girl 's DIY suggestion...

I'll sleep on it, thanks for the link though, these things are impossible to find!

Just to confirm that the ex-coat hanger hook trick works really well, it was used quite a few times on the last holiday and again on this one and has never failed ... just to be greedy I have a long and short hoses and have hooks on both ... :p
