Agreed dunnah01 and if you open the cab windows when driving it just sucks the smell towards you. you only do it once. Smelled worse than black waste!
I also enjoy the refill ritual when low on water. Best hack I have for that is using the end section off a domestic downspout to act as a funnel. It fits the filler opening perfectly and let’s you pour quite quickly.If we’re taking our pushbikes I’ll only put in 45lt of our 70lt capacity. Max capacity if no bikes.
We’re usually on a site with drinking water taps nearby & I’m still fit enough to walk about with a 20lt load
But out Motorhome is a little un. Along with the 70lt fresh water tank, we’ve only got a 40lt grey tank.
Thats a fair to medium point which was well raised. Leave the tank open when travelling after opening.
Not good practice as the as there is quite a bit of water still in the tank unless you have air suspension or hydraulic Jack's so you can tilt the van to drain the tank properly.Leave the tank open when travelling after opening.
I ll practice some more thenNot good practice as the as there is quite a bit of water still in the tank unless you have air suspension or hydraulic Jack's so you can tilt the van to drain the tank properly.
If I empty my tank level then tilt the van on the air another 10 - 20 Lt comes out.
Pretty much what we do!!!Payload...our full tank weighs 120kg...we carry adequate to get the trip started...top up as we leave for the next leg of a journey....never had problems finding fresh water....
For drinking we carry a container of water from home which is filtered, don't drink from tank... anything ever been said before on this...?
first time out with my bessacar i filled to brim, got to site and was down to 3/4 of tank, overflow is at front of tank and must have been loosing water everytime i braked so i fitted a one way valve to pipe so air can go in but water cant get out, so now have hatch and top of tank open and fill to brim for start of tripFill to the overflow of my 60l and by time of arrival quite a lot has sloshed out.
Been known to have an extra 80 lts under the bed when off grid. I reduced it to 40 lts as the norm, which is what I’ve got at the moment.Full fresh plus 25L in the garage. Grey gets dumped at every opportunity. I also leave tap open but only a litre or two might drain out.
