Water Sticker

Post by FrankW on Mon Nov 07, 2011 7:34 am

Hi All
A quick question please hugegrins

Our filler for topping up the fresh water looks to me like it "should" have a sticker on it, at the top, around the outside edge - should it have ??
Ours appears to be missing - does anyone have a photo of what it should look like, and more importantly, where I can get a replacement sticker ??

Thanks

Frank

Beat me to it Admin, I was about to post exactly the same link.

My water filler has the word 'water' actually engraved in the outer rim. Would have been better if it had been high-lighted in contrasting colour though.

Thanks Admin - ordered and on it's way (hopefully) up!

Paul - you could always highlight the engraved word yourself, with a little gloss paint applied lightly and then rubbed over, to leave it in the letter impressions perhaps ??

@Cymro - yikes !!

Thanks all

Hi there

Just thought I would update you with my progress on this, as it has been quite successful, and the badge I eventually got made up was excellent.

I ordered the badge as suggested by Paul, knowing it would be too big, and hoping I could trim it down. Anyway, from the first picture you can see it was a little too large for the slot to stick it in, and being a gel type badge wouldn't really lend itself to trimming.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

So, I went back to the guy who sold it me on ebay and explained that the badge was great, but too large, and could he make me a bespoke one. Several emails later (over the course of a week or so) and the badge below dropped through my letterbox.

As you can see, it is a superb fit and is also colour coded to the rest of the van - and all for less than £4 allthumbz

So, if you want a bespoke gel type sticker contact David Roche at avp-signs via ebay or contact me and I will send you his email address.

Hi there,

You are all starting to worry me now!!

I have two "holes" in Petal - both with locking caps. They are:

1. One that opens with the IGNITION key; it is the DIESEL opening. up!

2. One that opens with the DOMESTIC key; it is the WATER opening. up!

Once explained to her, I would expect my two-year old granddaughter to grasp the difference and, should she be so congenitally stupid as to mix them up thereafter, I would have her put down.

So why would anyone need a label that says "WATER" (which incidentally, as my granddaughter cannot read, would be useless to her!!) to stick on a hole that they know full well what it is for! shrugg

Best regards,

Dutto drinksallround

water label

Post by murph on Sat Nov 19, 2011 10:45 am

I agree with Dutto with regards to a label on the water tank, to normal experienced motorhomers it shouln'd be necessary, however we have another thread which covers cleaning out fresh water tanks contaminated with diesel on ASOF, so it must happen, possibly when the van is lent to somone who is not experienced, sons daughters ETC.

I'm in total agreement with Brian, Accidents can happen and the cost to repair can be excessive. So whats the big deal about labelling each 'hole' . Most of us love our vans and putting those little finishing touches to them is just normal.

I agree with Roger, it's not a case that people are thick and cant tell the difference between their water tanks and fuel tanks, (I know it does happen.. but even the sticker is not a guarantee they wont make that mistake) for most of us it's purely cosmetic and it's just nice to have these little features, nothing wrong with taking pride in your vehicle shrugg

I'm sure the idiots in Brussels who say that water is bad for you, will insist on 'Wasser' or 'Eau' stickers only next scratch head
Sorry, still trying to be serious hugegrins

I didn't realise this post would generate so many replies !!

For me, it was a case of putting a sticker back where clearly there had been one once, so more taking pride in the look of the van than anything else. If, in the future, it stops someone (maybe me !!) making a mistake then so much the better.

I posted a follow up post because I was impressed with the badge I had obtained and thought that others might want a badge/sticker making for their van, or any other purpose for that matter, and I found the chap I used to be helpful and good value for money, so thought others might benefit from my experience.

Just my two-penneth ..... winks

Hi Frank.
I agree its the little touches that say you care and are proud of your vehicle. How many would run around with decals and strips etc missing or damaged. Not many.
Thanks for the post. Whisky. champagne
