  • Lift the flap and you will see a blue water cap.
  • To open the cap, you push it in and turn (cap lock must be in an unlocked position).
  • Pop in your hose and fill it up.
  • When it's full, water will back-splash back from the inlet.
  • Replace the blue cap by again pushing in and turning. You can lock this cap if you wish.

Please Note:

  • Empty the water from the fresh-water tank if you are not using it for a while. 
  • To do this you roll under the motorhome driver’s side and you will see a green bung on the water tank.  Unscrew this to empty the water tank.

Greywater Tank Instructions 

To empty your grey water tank:

  • Locate the brown hose from the plastic container in your boot or locker.
  • Locate the greywater outlet on the outside of your motorhome.
  • See below video clip of what it looks like and how to attach the hose and open the outlet: 

Please Note:

  • Always empty your grey water after your travels or whenever you can. 
  • Please only empty your grey water at dedicated grey water dumping stations. 
  • Ensure you rinse the brown hose after you have emptied the tank and keep it in the plastic container. 
  • To ensure your grey tank does not start smelling, be careful what goes down your sink drain. Wipe down greasy plates with a paper towel then wash them and don't let food waste go down the sink.
