water tank overflow on Wlidax

A friend of mine has recently bought a S/H Wildax Constellation on a Citroen Relax base.

She believes the water tank is 50ltrs but it seems to have an overflow that allows water to slosh out will driving and leaves insufficient for two people to use. It is a serious issue for her.

I am going to look at it on Friday to see what might be done. I do not know this make and would appreciate any input that other Wildax owners may have.

thanks

Andrew

Hi Andrew

Jacqqie & John (ladyJ) - the rally team boss (!), has one of these. Maybe if she doesn't see this you could PM her? They will be at the Shabbington rally also......

Wildax tanks are normally in the region of 100 litres capacity. There is a necessary vent on top of the tank. If the tank is overfilled then this will obviously overflow. I often travel at 50% without a problem with overflow.
Wildax back up is excellent and an email or phone call will result in help.

I second Rowley. Give Duncan a phone call. He's always very helpful and knowledgeable. If it was bought from Wildax does she have a warranty?

Thanks guys. It is an older vehicle so there is no warranty involved. I have suggested she rings Wildax which she will doe tomorrow. She is in Thames valley which is a long way from Wildax so I expect to be involved in fitting the solution

I had mine speshly made by Barratt Tanks about 120 liters under the floor, I too had the overflow spill, I ended up putting a pipe on it, which ends near the spare wheel, it still overflows as it should when full, but I don't lose any unless going up a very steep hill.

If you need a bigger tank give Shaun a ring, if yo can't go to him he'll either send a new tank by carrier or even come and fit it, nice friendly bloke always laughing, don't bother with CAK tanks, they just don't fit.
