Hi, have picked up my 2011 Bourton on Friday......I did pressure the dealer to get it ready for me in a rush, but I am a bit mystified by the water inlet.I know the fresh tank is full, and we are just away for 2 nights on a site with wash up and shower facilities, so if I can’t refill the tank so be it.I have never encountered the plug in electric hole thingy.......we have a truma pump thingy, and it seems to need to be immersed in a container of water........can anyone tell me what connection I need to fill fron a hose..... this all seems too complicated!
Cheers

Hi If it is the same as my old Gloucester you should also have a connecter on a hose pipe that enables you to fill up from a tap, It had some sort of valve in the middle of it may have been a pressure relief valve, things just made complicated for the sake of it, I understand a lot of owners have had a standard filler fitted depending on where your inlet is fitted make sure your Truma filler is long enough, they make 2 different lengths

What you  describe is the TRumpa connector to fill from a container, aquaroll or similar. To fill from the tap you need a longer hose with the Truma end plug, like one of these.
