    Ok so further to my thread about Winterising the MH I decided to get underneath her and see whats what....
    I found various pipes and a tap and a screw cap to the fresh water carrier, now taking heed of the advice given I unscrewed it and let any water drain out....so far so good....:Smile:

    As it was a lovely day I decided to give Lizzie (OH has given her a name, he is getting very fond) a wash, started her up and reversed to the tap, CRUNCHHH straight over the screw cap which I had stupidly in my enthusiastic haste not replaced....it is crushed, flattened kerput :Doh:

    Now to say OH is getting fond is perhaps an understatement, I am not keen to tell him that whilst messing with her undercarriage I have removed one of her vital bits....no no.. he does not need to know ...YET..
    And not at all if I can get a replacement pronto....
    So any ideas....Lizzie is a Swift Royale (hence the Lizzie :RollEyes:)
    Where would I source one from???

    Many thanks in advance...

    I find most of my bits on EBay
    You should find what you want, most water fittings are generic not specific

    Any chance of a picture of the remains of said squashed item and possibly where it should fit?

    Now that would be a good idea, but I have no idea how to post a pic.....I could send one to a kind person via mobile phone though if they knew how to put it on....:Smile:

    Also for info....it is the screw tap from the Grey waste container ....not the fresh water...(still learning..) and I have measured it ....3 3/4 inches across..if that makes any difference.
