G'day Mike

The pump is inside the neoprene sound deadening tube, it is a Whale 12 volt 13.2 liters/min.  Either side of the outlet from the tank inside the black poly tubing will be a
One way inline valve one going to the kitchen tap (in tube before the pump) and one going to the hand pump.  You should be able to feel them in the tube it might be partially blocked.  The pics below will show you what each one looks like.  I had a Tvan for 16 years I don't know if the Mk2 had the one way valves or not, I think they were there mainly to keep the pumps primed by preventing the water draining back into the tank it being the lowest point.  You can't run the whale pump dry, I used to suck the water through to the kitchen tap so it was properly primed.

Thanks Pete,

I'll tackle the other side without the spring compressors. So far seems fiddly but do-able.

Swapping the shock rubbers at the same time just to be sure.

Thanks Andrew and Hulby. I'll have a go at taking the kitchen ou (I want to do that anyway to get at the gas jets and I want to investigate longer slides for the kitchen anyway.) I will put this off for a few days as it is going to be very hot here in Adelaide. Get back here then.
We tried turning the water on when I had the tank top open and it looked and sounded to me as though that black cylinder is the pump. I'll see what I find when I get the kitchen out.

The rubber bumpers however are starting to look perished, ours became hard and wore the fiberglass, might be worth replacing those.

Thanks Ray, they're on the to do list, I just haven't found replacements yet.

Just check exactly how loud these heaters are...

Good point Rob.

I was expecting it to be pretty loud so I was surprised how quite it was when testing it, however I'll need to use it for a while before I trust it enough to leave on unsupervised.

Our 2006 MkII Canning has a Shurflo Lo-Flo 105 Series pump rated at 3.8LPM (litres per minute), 2.5A, 30psi.
If the same you should get double your current water flow. The pump is located on the right side of the kitchen cavity. At the back of the kitchen cavity there is an aluminium arm that is hinged to the back wall. The water hose and electrics are attached to it and it swings out when you pull the kitchen out. This is where there is a high chance the hose could get kinked.
As stated previously support the kitchen on a table or saw horses and unbolt from the slides. Then pull further out to reveal what is behind. You can swing the kitchen left or right to gain access. We found the hose was poorly attached to the arm and had kinked. Replaced the hose from pump to kitchen rear and all was good. Had no problems for the last 5 years or more. Whilst kitchen is out check bolts that attach slides to base are tight and if the kitchen had a sag add a packer to level the kitchen!
Regards, Andrew.

As far as I remember on our 2010 Mk2, there is no pump next to the tank. That may be a previous owner fitted filter which may be clogged? The tank is usually located with blocks of styrene foam. As previously advised by Robert the pump is under the bed in the kitchen locker. If you send that photo to Track Trailer, they would tell you if that is a TT fitment or not.

Long delay, I know and only just trawling through some old posts... how did you go finding what you're after...?

Might have a little more luck posting in the "Other track products" forum... lots of us Eagle owners there.

Cheers and welcome,

Personally, I don't reckon my Mk5 Tvan roof is designed for an adult's weight.(I may be wrong but I don't want to find out the hard way). I use a ladder placed at the back to do the top of the rear hatch and and in the middle behind the solar panel. The solar panel itself I use a soft broom with car wash detergent then rinse. I can get at most of the rest of the roof from the ladder placed along each side, and the front of the roof by standing on the drawbar aluminium checkerplate, although removing the spare wheel might make that easier. You need to stretch in some places (not good for your back) but it can be done. You can also access some of the roof from the roof hatches (but not much). No idea if it matters but I used a cutting polish suitable for fibreglass and a cheap electric polisher to apply it when I did my Mk2 roof years ago.You just need to keep away from the external corners and ridges if using an electric polisher. Do those by hand

Hi Geoff,

I could do with a replacement glass for my M3 TVan so i guess this is the one?  Mine is a Remis.  If yours will fit i can offer $100 plus post I am in NSW.

Thanks Roger
