Its not grey waste

Post by crimbo on Thu Apr 24, 2014 2:05 pm

Before leaving my pitch or hard standing, can i open the drain valve and let the water go from my Truma heater or is this shunned upon. Any remaining fresh water in the main tank i drain into my waste carrier and dump in the correct place. The problem is i cant see how to catch the water from the heater drain valve as it drains under the MH. tap_fingers

I think leaving a wet pitch behind for the next person is not very friendly. Personally I don't drain my clean water side until the  end of the season unless the weather dictates otherwise.

Ditto as above, why would you want to drain the water heater when leaving a site ?

Hi

Another reason why not is the release of hot water may kill the grass.

I drain down when I get home, so I have full facilities 'en route'.

Don't have the opportunity (shame on me) to use the van as often as I'd like, so don't want stale water sitting.

We normally drain down just prior to getting home.
We have our favourite drain at Taunton Sevices when coming back down the M5.
This gets everything nicely down to air by the time we are home.
We are still carrying our separate drinking water in case of an en-route 'tea' emergency.  hugegrins

I usually drain at the end of the season at home but right now I'd settle for having the choice, just filled up the system and had water pouring out of the  censored  heater cowl  fedup 

 It was drained down for winter - and had a hab service in January - so I really hope it's just a seal. No time to sort it out as off to Devon Tuesday and as I don't have the by-pass device (anyone know where I can get one, Cascade GE?) have just had to stop off the inlet pipe. There was quite a lot of coarse language involved in that job.
