Hi just a query regarding draining Truma heater, on a Nuevo 2003 model 
On lifting the yellow drain switch the water releases like its raining through what looks like a sieve under the motorhome, is this correct or is there supposed to be a pipe to drain the water into a bucket, can’t imagine you leave it to drain on the floor of your pitch before you leave

Only drain the boiler over winter to avoid frost damage, no need to drain after every trip

Never drain the boiler on grass because the hot water will kill it.

Like Bilbo, ours is only drained for winter.

There should be a short pipe attached to the underside of the drain tap but it's so short it runs all down the chassis. Could you not wait until you get home rather than drain it on your pitch.?

If you are heading home there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't turn off the pump and then open all taps and the Truma drain valve shortly before leaving your pitch.  Unfortunately the Truma drain valve sends water all over the place but this isn't a problem providing you are not on a grass pitch and the water is hot, as it will kill the grass.  The journey home will help shake water out of the system.  Some people only drain down during the winter.  I do it after every trip regardless of the time of year and start again with fresh water at the start of the next trip.
