Hi, Camper been rested for the last couple of months and have now trying to get it ok for whenever we can use it again. I wanted to put some water on it. I opened the hot taps started the boiler (no problem) red safety switch up. Put in water and it poured out under the boiler. Should I have heated the area around the red switch with a blow heater or what??? Help Stargazer

i only get that when the boiler safety valve is open.
Unless your grey water disposal valve underneath is open?

Hi some vans have two drain valves under the boiler
For draining the system could be on the inside on the floor
Push down and turn to they stop.
Then you have the frost valve you pull up.

Thanks guys, I will try what you said, the frost valve is pulled up, so might be other outlet which is new to me, hope the boiler is not gone, but if it's lighting it should be OK, thanks again cheers Stargazer 👍

you should make sure you have water coming out the hot taps/ shower with no airlocks before lighting up the boiler
