    • Username and other important upgrade information   09/23/2015

      Please note that the forum is still upgrading will be for most of the night I think,therefore you may find it slow at times, looking different etc etc. This will straighten out (he hopes) as the upgrade continues. One of the big changes is that usernames and display names will change.   At the moment you can have a username and display name for example you can have a username of joeblogsy and a display name of Joe Blogs.   After the upgrade we will only have usernames.   For some this won't make any difference at all but there are a fair few of you that have different display names., many of which I have changed for people for various reasons.   If, after the upgrade you notice your forum name isn't right please just send me a PM with your desired username.   You may also find you have been logged out, if this happens and you cannot remember your original forum details, please email me at mark@touringandtenting or open a support ticket by

  1. Good day new friends. I bought a caravan last week only to discover I know nothing about them. I have a list of topics I would love to learn more about however I have decided to start with the most important one. The toilet.
    The van has the aforementioned Thetford toilet. It has a plunger for a flush. There must have been some water still in the water tank as the toilet flushed for the first few days. This has now finished. I consulted the manual to find out about refilling. It tells me to open the waterfill door and fill the tank. On opening the door all I have access to is a flue pipe. There is no hose or any opening to pour chemicals or water into. On discovering this I hoped that the main fresh water supply would refill the toilet water tank but this does not appear to be the case.
    Any advise would be hugely appreciated.
