    draining water tank

    Hi. We hope everybody had a good summer getting out and about. Mo and I have a 2003 Duo Outlook, and I was wondering if there was a quick way to empty the fresh water tank or do you have to turn the tap on and empty it into the sink? Also does it harm the pump if the system is completely dry?
    Regards, Colin.

    Hi Colin, if it's the same as the 2004 Duo Hylo I had you just pump the water into the sink until the water splutters then switch off the pump on the switch panel. The remaining water in the tank can be siphoned out or you can use a sponge. If you let the pump run dry it may overheat, best not. There is a time limit for how long you can run the pump but I can't remember what it is.

      Hi Colin,
      I do just the same drain down,but just before the tank empties while it has a couple of inches of water in it,I drop a miltons tablet in it,to stop bugs growing in the pipes.let the tablet dissolve,then carry on with the drain down.
      when you refill in spring,flush a couple of pints to drain and bobs your uncle.

        Hi Colin, I have a C15 Hylo and the same problem but use the tap to take out most of the water, then use an old yoghurt carton to get more, then resort to the sponge. Having said that, I tend to use a water carrier and find that easier.
        Good luck,
