We have a leak through the Truma dump valve, not the automatic one but the cheaper manual one.
It will not seal and therefore drains the tank in 24h.
I have located a replacement (around £3
the fittings are all the "push together" ones like can be used for domestic plumbing, only smaller of course. The domestic ones are sealed by an 'O' ring inside and the pipe cannot come out due to small claws set into a washer around the pipe which the pipe has to be pushed through. The domestic ones can be unscrewed if needed, but I am not sure the blue and black ones fitted to the blue cold pipe can..... the cap just seems to turn.
My worry is that, in order to fit a new valve, I have to take apart probably three or four connections..... how do I do that ? Does anyone know how to take these "push together" junctions apart ? Or can it not be done......? 😢
My only drastic thought is to cut the pipes, but of course that will leave a few gaps, and water is not good at jumping those gaps...... 😃 I could fit new pieces of pipe if essential, but a simple dismantle and replacement would be much more preferable.
So, once again, can anyone advise what to do ? I am loath to have to take the MH to an "expert" as for such a small part the cost would undoubtedly, be very high.....
Help please, with grateful thanks
