  1. Use a good sterilising solution (home brew stuff or baby bottle cleaner is good). Leave in overnight and flush. Im not a great fan of drinking water that has been through the plastic system like many.
  2. Hi Been a few posts on this topic on here. Your solution with the LEDs should work OK but like many there is an option to put a level meter in with bezel matching the other gear. For example https://www.marcleleisure.co.uk/cbe-fresh-waste-water-level-indicator-kit-grey.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjwpZT5BRCdARIsAGEX0zmoFB_GWEsoESLV2zCM6Yjw7S54fUpRbjdQBS5XcbINxO8k7zsw3U4aAk1cEALw_wcB

  10. False activation has been experienced here when the road changes camber rapidly. This must fool the sensors.
  11. I have a standalone tracker alarm. If it is triggered it sends me a text message and GPS location of caravan. Battery operated and portable.

  13. Assuming it is a U3 there is a pump in the internal tank and one in the aquaroll. Fill the tank by pumping from aquaroll
  14. Looks bad - however the gasket does the work - a smear of gasket sealant on the surfaces would have done the job and looked better. Mine is the same BTW
