Not where you'd expect to find it that's for sure!


Mine is in the two forward facing passenger seats in the lounge, this is near the water inlet, I would expect yours to be in a similar position, in the pipework, close to the inlet.


Thanks for the calibration tip, I'll give that a go when we're next out.

Should we really be forced to taking the carpet up, getting into the tank, and tapping the blooming pump having shelled out a lot of money to get a mh?
O must be one of the very few people who use the carpets

We put the carpets in for winter (not the kitchen/entrance area one though) and take them out in the spring. The ones around the sides of the fixed bed are left in all year.

We use the carpets all year round with one exception. We just cover the carpets with rugs and mats.


The exception is when we'd go to the continent in the summer, one because its warmer and two, particularly if going somewhere sandy, it's easier to clean up.


I don't know anyone else who takes their carpets out.

That's the main reason.

We take out the carpet in the lounge area and the small one between the shower and toilet rooms. In summer there is no need for the extra warmth of a carpet and we tend to be in and out of the MH more. Takes all of 2 minutes to do...

Not really a problem in warmer months tbh Kev.
