    Hi everyone,
    Hello to all - just joined up, having been a motorhomer for just over a year.
    Actually- I need some help. I have a leak. Had one months ago from my bathroom sink but could get to it to replace a jubilee clip so all was well. Now it is my kitchen sink but it I can't work out how to get to it as it is behind the fridge.
    It is a swit ace novella roma (ducato). Do I have to take the sink out to get to the hose/clips?

    Any advice gratefully received!
    Damien

    if its behind the fridge you should have fridge vents on the outside of the van that you will be able to remove and get to it

    Cheers Chris,
    I got that far but there is a length of angled thin plywood blocking access. I'll try again to remove that.

    Hopefully it will be a simple job like a loose connector............but as you say getting there can be a pain.

    good luck.

    Managed to get vent cover off and make a hole in the plywood.
    Can now see water dripping from the tap (not the hoses).
    Maybe a new tap or washer inside?
    Is it a big job to get taps out?

    Cheers for your help,
    Damien
