If I remember correctly, the diameter of the main flow pipe is 12mm. I reckon you need a slightly larger pipe to push over this and secure with a stainless circlip. Push the other end onto the top of the 'none returm valve' on the new Tamdem pump and secure in the same way with a circlip.

Just ensure that the pipe used for the adaption is 'fit for purpose' and the length is right.... so that the pump is resting on the bottom of the water tank.

You'll then need to complete the 12v connection. The origional Hymer fitted 12v lead has a connecor attached, but I'm not sure about the repolacement pump. If not, then it might be a simple case of cutting and crimping the old / new wires together above the tank.

All sorted with a Reich pump and some help from Steve at Marcle Leisure to get it fitted as the connectors are different to the Tandem pump.

In fact I also bought a 2nd pump while at Marcle so I can carry a spare - the price of 2 was the same as the price of 1 quoted by Brownhills in Swindon.

Yet another big negative for Brownhills and a very BIG plus for Steve at Marcle!

Remove all cushions, lift all under-cushion wooden flaps and look for a water tank.
There will be a BIG screw lid . Unscrew lid, peer inside.
At the bottom of a plastic pipe, there will be a pump.
Since this is a German motorhome, chances are.... someone has connected the 12v the wrong way round
because the Germans are all colour blind....( only joking, Dorli ! )

Swap leads. You can't do any damage, but the pump will perform MUCH better when the leads are the right way around.

If you have the same taps as there are in my hymer there is a microswitch in them. This switches on the pump when you open the tap. The one in the sink has probably failed. It happened to me. I took the tap apart and found a wire shorting. A bit of a faff though. A new tap might be easier.

Some truth in this. The DC wiring in my Hymer has blue as positive (the colour of the sky) and brown as negative (the colour of the earth). It cost me 2 phone chargers when I extended the ring to fit extra 12v sockets

Almost certainly correct. You can purchase replacent micro switches from Leisure Shop Direct, but it is indeed 'A bit of a faff'. If you buy a new tap though you still have to connect the wires under the sink.

Or get a pressure activated pump and all will work as it should, stupid system to have taps with switches.
