    clearing air lock

    Having drained the water system completely on the R30 I found on refilling it today, because we are going in a week's time to friends in Mevagissey, that the water pump was cycling ferociously. It did suffer a little with this a few months ago but I did not want to go to the bother of bleeding the pipes at that time-nor did I today. Thinking it out I realised the R30 is always parked nose down quite steeply in our drive. Maybe the opposite angle would release the air? So I took the 'van UP the steepest local hill and also trod on the brakes heavily whilst climbing, making sure the road was clear first. On return to base and turning on the taps I got a satisfying hiss and then a flow of water and no stuttering of the pump. Job done.

    That's the sort of fix I like.
