2015 Affinity Replacement Kitchen Tap


Recommended Posts

So, having checked on the 540 in storage a few weeks back I found a number of vertical cracks at the base of the kitchen tap spout - obviously frost damage that occurred during the winter. :(

 

The 'van is being serviced at the end of the month and I've been told that they'll swap the tap over as part of the service if I obtain a replacement in readiness for it.

 

So, I've been looking for replacement taps and gotten mighty confused! I thought that it would be a whale tap, but then spotted a Reich tap that looks similar. Also, I see that some taps come with microswitches, others without; some are for pressurised systems, others not. ....arghhh!

 

Just wondering if anyone can advise me as to what the correct spec would be for the tap (presumably it would be with a microswitch and non-pressurised, but I'm really not sure, hence the post) or, alternatively, provide some links to suitable taps?

 

Thanks in advance. :)

I assume it is not being replaced under guarantee? Try Leisureshopdirect, Ilfracombe. Tell them the model and

year, and they may be able to help. I find them very helpful.

Thanks both, I shall try Leisure shop direct in the next day or so then. I made an assumption that warranty wouldn't cover it so never even bothered looking in to it to be fair.

 

Yes, I did wonder if it would be fridge out - glad it's the service engineer doing it and not me, lol.

Is there any chance of accessing the tap by taking off the external fridge vents? Just a thought! I'm not familiar with that model of caravan.

Surely as the service company is an Elddis dealer they will have a replacement tap in stock?

Many vans use similar taps. You could have a look at Bailey parts direct site. They sell direct to the public.

Nope the fridge has to come out. no access from top fridge vent. There is a metal plate fitted above at top of the vent on my 550
