Water Issues Empty Water Issues

Evening All

Parked up at Southport on the ASOC Rally 

Been a day if water issues with my 2016 Nuevo EK

1. Arrived on site with a full tank of water having filled 
up at home yesterday for the rally 

Went for a coffee, came back to find dump valve in the process 
of empting all my water.

Outside temperature about 12C

Any ideas ?

2. External water pump would not work (tested on next doors Nuevo, all ok),
checked 10A fuses ok. Any ideas ?

3. Then to cap it all opened the cupboard under the cooker which is all damp, on inspecting 
it seems the waste pipe has come undone. 

Is it just a push fit ?

Bit concerned it may have been faulty for a while as the good lady 
wife said she could smell something not nice, smells like cat pee.

Then it may be the float switch in the tank that stops water flow when the tank is full. Can you fill with a hose on the Whale inlet as opposed go the pump. If so it points to a fuse or a connector, if not then the float switch is more likely. Just in or just out of warranty?

After I spotted yours went back and mine was also dumping however managed to stop it.  

Your next door (Rienza) came up with a idea he uses, put a peg on the hose.  Forgot his handle but he comes on here.

Can only help on item 3. Had the same problem, so have many others on here, with the waste pipe. Mine was a push fit, but the amount to push in was very short, A/S saving money!. I used some pipe adhesive and so far it has stayed put. Some say it was a push fit to allow for movement, I also noticed the end was not cut straight or smooth.

I only hope the pipes under the shower tray etc hold up.

Yes, the waste pipes are push fits. Ours was terribly done (there is a thread on here showing the rough workmanship). Our pipes had been hacked off (not square) with a coping saw, rather than a pipe-cutter and the waste actually rose, rather than fell. I sent the photos to Willersley, Mr Curry was very apologetic and said they would review their method of working. Pipe cutter cost only a couple of quid from B&Q.

Incidentally there is a trap in the waste pipe to stop pongs coming from the tank; this does not empty when you drain down, so could freeze when it gets really cold. I'm not sure if this could cause the pipe to push out of the trap.

This shot shows how water was supposed to flow uphill! I shortened the pipes, cutting them properly.

The kitchen sink waste pipe on our Broadway fell apart twice, in different places, flooding under the sink and one of the side sofas where the Sargent control unit and wiring is. Luckily, there was no damage to the electrics and I managed to push the pipes back together, alter the run of the pipes so they drained properly ( ours ran uphill too!) and I glued them all together with pipeweld when we got home.  
I can’t see the logic behind push fit pipes on a vehicle subject to movement and vibration especially when we all know push fit pipes like AS use wouldn’t be acceptable in house plumbing.
