Hi All

Arrived on a campsite this afternoon to see the new year in.
Having drained the van of all water before the cold spell, filled up with water at the site, put the pump on and the boiler deposited all of the water even though the cold water drain valve is closed.
Any ideas anyone

Since 2008 & many years tugging
Could be faulty air release valve, it is a tee connector at the top of the boiler. If the water is flowing out of the pipe from it that goes out under the van you can clamp the pipe off once the boiler is full as a temporary fix.

Do you have a boiler frost saver valve on the Tumer boiler?

According to the manual all it can be is that the water pressure is too high, maybe refill tomorrow with the taps open in case an airlock is causing it
