    Hi all.

    I went to use my new gear today and nothing worked. I can't get the water to feed from the tank at any type of pressure, I switched it on had it on number three but nothing and now the heater won't switch on I have changed the batteries but nothing.

    I don't understand it I went and looked at the van and equipment on tuesday was there for about an hour with it all working went back the next day to pick it up and today nothing :angry:

    I've taken all the pipework apart and blown it through so water can pass through. I noticed a U symbol on the display screen and i have been informed this means low on power, now I didn't think about the power before because he has had the battery that powers the unit wired up to the car battery so the idea being it charges whilst the van is moving however i have noticed a rotten egg smell in the cab from time to time, the last time i had that was when the relay went on my motorbike and it was frying batteries.

    so what I was wondering how do you guys get around the battery issue, I have just taken the battery out and put it on charge, god I hope this it :wacko:

    If there is one good thing that has come out of this it has given me the chance to find my way around the equipment :rolleyes:
