On my Nuevo Lancashire the wate tank is drained through a large hole opened by pulling a lever. It empties quick BUT is not easy to control the flow, AND when camping in France the sites have waste outlets on the pitch which is suitable for taking the standard flexi hose. I have been told an adapter is available which fits to the existing outlet and takes a standard flexi hose. Any suggestions welcome

If you are in ASOC their is a published 'ideas sheet' that I prepared showing how to make an adapter easily and cheaply. I'm not home again until 2nd week in March so could post the pics then,

Hallo Mr Bump. My Nuevo (2007) was supplied with a tiny waste drain tap of less than 1/2" bore, which used to take several minutes to drain the tank. This was not popular on busy sites, and I know that several owners complained, which probably resulted in the fitting of the very large bore system that you have. I adopted a middle-of-the-road approach, to fit a bigger tank outlet, coupled to a tap at the back (where it seemd most useful), with at least 20mm bore throughout. This works really well, I can't see how to insert a picture, but I can give more details if you want them. Total cost would have been under a tenner, although I found most of the bits in my spares box.

Hallo again Mr Bump, i've worked it out (the old grey matter is a bit porous now).

Here's what it looks like, rear right hand corner. The white 20mm tube is the outlet, can be swivelled to hit the drain accurtely, and I cary a bit of plastic hose to reach drains that i can't park over. The black lump between the two hose clips is the tap, full bore 20mm opening, available from pond/aquatics suppliers. All plastic, easy to clean (it's rght behind the rear wheel). Worth a thought?

Many thanks Notsonuevo, for the picture, looks tidy, I assume you also used a similar approach to that suggested by Peter with regard to the waste tank fitting, i.e. cap with an outlet to which the 20mm pipe is attached, gives best of both worlds.
Thanks Mr Bump up!

Well, not quite... as I explained, my Nuevo didn't have the cap that you have, but it does have a large access cap (about 6" diameter) for access and cleaning. Through that I managed to install a new outlet spigot at the bottom of the tank to which the 3/4" hose is attached. I've left the original spigot, hose and tap in place - well, it saved me having to blank it off.

While I was doing that job, I discovered that the overflow outlet was not at the top, but around 2/3 of the way up. That meant that you could only fill the waste tank 2/3 full. shrugg So, I modified that as well, and if we are lucky, there'll be a picture of that too....

I also discovered that of the three shower tray outlets, only two were connected to the tank. I think this is a clever A/S undocumented feature that allows you to dump the shower tray waste straight onto the ground. Not that I ever would, of course! Whistle1
