Hi again, unfortunately I’m having a pre departure nightmare with water issues, seem to have fixed my cold water problems!

I now have a hot water leak from the top of my boiler into the overflow….it’s dripping hot water under the van consistently.

Has anyone come across this issue…

It maybe the the relief valve in the vent pipe hasn't resealed properly after all the work you did with the new pump!
Happened to me after I replaced my pump. I took the vent tube off the boiler with the relief valve, flushed it out, refitted it, not had a problem since!

Great idea….so in that T joint….There is a relief valve???

Édit…..yes there’s a spring loaded ball bearing in there, if it doesn’t clear, I can order a new one.

I'm interested in this thread because of late my Truma leaks a dribble out of the relief pipe. I noticed it because, during the night, the pump would activate for a second or two, occasionally. Clearly there was a loss of water which the pump corrected. In the morning I could see where the water dripped under the van. If I turned off the hot water overnight, there was no problem.

So it sounds like the same issue as described by Libraryman2.

By the way, is there any way to change the title of this thread - only if Libraryman2 consents - to describe better the subject? It would help future searchers. e g. Hot water dripping from Truma Boiler.   -   or similar?  I think only Mods can do so.

Thanks, Ray, but I believe that only a Moderator or Admin can change a thread's title.

I'm going to leave mine alone until forced to take action, because I fear that any repair to the Truma boiler on my Nuevo (the boiler is under the wardrobe, and apparantly is fitted for maximum awkwardness, facing the sidewall) will be very costly. Hence my interest in your threaad.

This is a point I've made before - it really would help to get more relevant responses and answers to questions if posters made the Post Title more specific and meaningful.

I replaced the relief valve on my water heater some years ago. I'm convinced the slow leaking was caused by draining the cylinder down without opening the hot taps first. 
If the valve is sucked open by the vacuum created it stands to sense that any grit in the plastic tube will be drawn up to the valve.
