Hi all... We out on our maiden Voyage with our new caravan ... It is really an awesome caravan.. 2007 Jurgens Classique .  We just need some advise .. Tried filling up the water tank... It fills up and then stops filling up quickly . We then checked the water level indicator inside and it shows it is just on the second level...... Some more level to go...

Not knowing exactly how the level indicator works I can't really help other than suggesting that it may be jamming due to lime or scale build up.

If it is an electronic type, I suggest letting the agents have a look.

From a previous chat if I remember the level gauge has 5 connections which would imply there could be 5 conductors as John indicated above that do not touch the water. Even if the gauge is wrong one should still be able to get more water in the tank. The next step could be to locate the breather and disconnect it and see if the tank is filled further if more water can be put in before it runs out of the breather pipe.

Sal julle laat weet wat fout was asb?

Het nodig om te leer.

My watertenk is 'manual', so as hy nie vol is nie, kan dit net ek wees.

Bronnie dit klink na 'n Airlock.  As jy die aanvul prop afhaal sal jy sien dat daar 'n klein gaatjie bokant die die groot gat is wat  'n breather is wanneer jy water ingooi. (Kyk in die kas aan die binne kant van die karavaan daar sal jy die dun pyppiebokant die dik aanvul pyp sien.

Insekte soos goggatjies kan die gaatjie toe spin en verstop. Vat net 'n dun draadjie en maak seker die gaatjie is oop. Dan behoort alles reg vol te loop.

Sonder Jesus is ek niks! ! ! !
