Can anybody help me? Where can I find a 12V Water pump to fit in the fresh water line from the water tank built into my Troll?

Jorrie, the caravan shops should sell pressure pumps. These are more expensive then the pupm Tinus mentions, but will "hold" pressure when you close the tap (IE stop running), and also are not damaged by running dry (see the latest issue of WegRy/DriveOut). Alternatively you can also buy one of these small shower sets at a camping/caravan shop for a couple of hundred bucks and cannabalise the pump?

Jorrie, where did you fit the water tank? What size and type?

I'm out of "Chuck projects" at the moment :shrug:

Christo

I fitted a drawer system in the back of the Troll. A 50 lt water tank (Pioneer plastic) is fitted athwartships behind the middle row seats but in front of the drawer system (above and slightly ahead of the rear axle). Works very well. All I want to do now is to get some pressure in the waterline without pressurising the tank. The gravity feed is too slow for my liking.
If you happen to be in my area you are welcome to come and have a look. Else you can have a look at SANDWANI. :salute:
