surely just easier to have 2 aqua rolls sting outside the van and swap the pickup pipe over when needed? Why pump water about?


Off Roading is OK.... But I'd rather be Boating!

Carrying one aqua roll around is a pain in the arse. Especially when they get covered in mud as they will when it rains :lol:

And it came with an inboard tank :whistle:

Not on our Coachman you don't Mark. Just press the button marked "Fill" and when it reaches 100% it turns the external pump off. We also have an internal pump in the onboard tank which is much higher pressure for a shower. No diverter valves or anything, just a button.

Why all those valves in the pic? I can't see how that works.

The valve on the left selects either inboard tank or aqua roll, the one on the right to the taps or to the inboard tank.

Ours is 10years old now, so hasn't got the modern facilities!

Also allows for the pump to be removed without water going everywhere. We had one fail while I was in the shower. Not a happy chappy. Managed to get a replacement locally but water (that was in the system) went everywhere because we could not shut the water off as in the picture so a pretty handy setup.

Well I think we've pretty much got everything- we should have judging by the piles of stuff in my study. Booked a site that is very close to home for a few days to get ourselves up to speed. Got a few bits to get on the day when we collect it but I think we should be good to go. (Famous last words!)

I'm not sure I can bring myself to that yet.
