Hi thanks for trying, glad to know it's not just me.

I never seem to have much luck with searches, it always sends a message stating that the moderators have been informed but, from a personal point of view, nothing changes.

Hi Roon, you must be one of the chosen few to be able to work the search engine.

I have looked at your reference and this has given me food for thought as I always travel with water in the flush.

Has anyone had a leak, I have a damp patch about halfway up the wall and, although I have had the corner sealed, I am not convinced it's from outside.

The first thing that needs to be established is whether or not the flush-water tank is the culprit. To do this, you could try putting a 'dye' colorant in the flush water - then, if the damp patch becomes coloured, you'll know it's being caused by the flush water.

 

If the problem is flush-tank-related, then either a seal has become faulty or the tank itself is damaged. As you will be aware, Thetford advise against travelling with water in the flush-tank, but plenty of people do, seemingly without resulting problems. However, if you do habitually travel with a full flush-tank, it would be sensible to cease doing so.

 

Are you sure it's not something simple, like water getting in where the flush-water filler-point pierces your motorhome's bodywork? If your damp patch is, literally, "halfway up the wall", then logically the water ingress is likely to commence towards the top of the patch.
