Sorry to drag up an old post, but I'm looking at plumbing in my newly arrive eccotemp..

Do you know what the fittings are that you have used to connect up the expansion tank and pump? They look like they have screw thread on one end and push fit on the other?

Would it be something like this http://www.leisureshopdirect.com/caravan/h...emale.aspx

Sorry to ask but I have some, what will to most of you be, extremely basic questions.

What mm ali did you use for the edging, panel and door framing on the coach work?

I only recently realised that seals aren’t meant to be load bearing.
When building doors and lids how do you work out their placement from a compression stand point?

What’s the correct procedure & sequence for fitting a frame, edge piece, panel etc.? In other words the piece has to be aligned, holes drilled, sealant applied and rivets popped. Do you apply sealant, line the piece up, fix it in place at either end then drill the holes and fit the remaining rivets in between? Or is every thing predrilled and ready to button up in a oner?

In this photo of your roof it looks as if the rivets are just placed there waiting to be tightened.



Ta muchly


Cladding is 14mm .. All edging is 15mm

I cut the pieces , test fitted , drilled holes ..

Then when I was ready , applied the sealant , put them in place and riveted together
