    Introduction & Windsor Caravan Question

    Hi I’m new here & am new to caravanning. I have a question which I hope people can help with?

    We’ve a 2nd hand Windsor Genesis 2006 model with 2 water tanks & 1 grey water tank. There is one filler point that, I believe, supplies both tanks & 2 breathing holes that I take the caps off when filling. We’ve a water level indicator that shows each freshwater tanks’s level. At the moment 1 tank has just run dry & the other appears full. However much as the pump is trying to pump it is spluttering & only delivering a drop of water. QUESTION. is there a switch/valve somewhere we need to switch over to access the 2nd tank???? I can see 2 pipes coming up from below as if there are 2 separate feeds to the pump but of course it’s hard to tell. The in line tap is open for both pipes.


    Any ideas welcomed.


    Thanks

    I had a simmilar problem with my Jayco 20' expander.
    It turned out to be a kink in the outlet/supply hose from the rear tank which I sorted by putting an elbow joint wher the kink was, Check to see if you have the same problem

    Thanks - I MAY have solved it. If I turn off the feed from
    one tank the other seems to work. Maybe it was sucking air from the empty tank?

    With any twin tanks you need to physically open and close water line taps usually under the sink or close to the pump.

    thanks Pedro - I think that’s working for me 👍🏻 … so basically leave the line open on the tank you’re using?

    Its easier for a pump to suck air than water.
