    On a number of occasions when I've been filling the water tank by myself the hose has fallen out of the filler tube when I've been at the tap end.

    Looking round I'm wondering whether THIS will be the solution.

    Can anyone advise whether it will fit a standard Zadi water inlet please.

    Hi Graham
    I've looked at these and thought they were a good idea, but surly your tank has an overflow?, my old Autosleeper has, in which case you would need the none vented one:thumb:

    Would there be any potential problem in using the vented cap with a tank with overflow and venting?
    I can see a potential problem the other way round ::bigsmile:

    Yes, apparently the vented one can be used with any tank but the non-vented only with a tank which has a vent/overflow built in. Our Autoquest had an overflow but the Burstner doesn't - just spills out of the filler tube if it gets full :Smile:

    Cap arrived today and fits the Zadi filler perfectly. No more hoses falling all over the place now :thumb:

    Why spend thousands on a motorhome? I used to go camping in a tent ::bigsmile:

    TBH I never thought of a doorstop - but would probably have gone for the cap anyway :Smile:
