location of watertank

Hi all let me start to say what a TERRIBLE THING this computer world has become.
I mean I was trying to get help with my American Imported motorhome but I could,t even register on their forums because of malfunctions and other stupid things.
They ask so many stupid questions that even if you get them right it still says that you got them wrong.
I have been trying for more then a week to get answers regarding my motorhome.
It 's a 1988 Chevrolet Komfort motorhome that somebody gave to me.
The person who gave it to me doesn't know anything about the motorhome because it used to belong to her mother who passed away.
I basically am in a terrible situation now and I just lost my home AGAIN.
I am living with family but the living is not going well so we decided to live partially in the Motorhome.

The thing is the toilet doesn't work because I have no way to get water for the motorhome.
There are no rv parks here on the Canary Islands where I live so I wonder if there is a tank I can fill with bottles of water or something.
I looked around but couldn't find anything but I am guessing there must be since the Motorhome is so self sufficient.
It is an American luxury motorhome with generator and all so there must be a tank here somewhere.
Do any of you have this model of Motorhome so you can tell me where the water tank is?

Oh forget it.
Just tell me how to unsubscribe from this forum and that's all I need.
This is a UK forum and I don't know why it ends with a .com
That's how terrible the computer world have become today I need an American forum since my vehicle is American and Americans do everything the other way around.
Just tell me how to unsubscribe or if the mods could unsubscribe me but this site should use a.uk adress and not a .com to save people time.
Because now I just wasted my time registerinf here when clearly nobody will be able to help me.
What a waste of time arw these computers and internet today!!!!!!

You seem to have some real problems.....I'm sorry that we can't help you...as for questions about your RV doubtless nobody here would own one of those.

Ted.
I try and state simple facts in a nice way.

We often had to fill our RVs via a hose or watering can and flexible funnel supported with a wire coat hanger.
It will take time as most American RVs have tanks from 250l up to 500L.
But getting water in is very simple, I'm sure you will have other problems with such an old vehicle.
Is it a 'gas' engine or diesel.?

The filler usually is found on the opposite side of the RV to the drivers seat. Look for a chrome cap should be in the same area as where you drain the grey and black tanks, most American RV hold a minimum of 120 litres up to over 300.

Crikey, I hope you have a better day tomorrow John. And welcome to the forum, if indeed you're still about.

And hopefully you can see that there IS help available.

We have a lot of .com sites pertaining to UK - were you thinking it should refer to America only?

Load of videos here on how to fill American RV water systems. I watched the first one and its not as straight forward as you would think. Looks like some have connections for mains water and on the first video on the list you have to open the garage and attach a hose from the pump to an external source to fill the tanks. All sounds a bit of a faff to me. There are some RV owners on here. Alan (erneboy) has one.

A 1988 RV is very unlikely to have a pressure fill water tank. More likely it's gravity fed. It will have a pressure nozzle for when you are on full hook up and use 'city' water to feed taps and toilet.

Is it this model?

Yeah Raynipper the body of the van is similar to mine but the color and interior and furniture are different but it's about the same.
But I found out how to fill water.
You see american cars are so modern that everything is easy even in older vehicles like this.
There are to hoses inside a side compartment and a pump.
You just need to turn on the pump and put the hose in a water bottle and it sucks it.
You can take several 8 litres bottles to fill the tank but I didn't fill it completely just to get by for now.
As for waste it's got 2 tanks.
1 is for the shower and sinks while the other is for the toilet.
The toilet flushes with a pedal that you press down all the way for flushing and halfway to just let water in the bowl.
You should leave water in the bowl because otherwise it would smell bad.
You have to switch the pump on inthe kitchen everytime you're gonna use water then turn it back off.
Then when you use water you'll hear a motor running while the faucet is open.
The tank is located below the van so it needs the pump to pump it in the cabin.
Now I want to ask you guys to tell me how yours work because I want to learn more about European models too.
