Motorhome mains water hook up
Edited by StuartO Forgive me if this concept needs refinement as it is not something I would do and I am still trying to think it through. I was thinking more of a separate inlet on the van and plumbing directly in to the cold water feed from the tank either using non return valves on each of a dual split feed in via a 'Y' piece, or individual taps, to isolate whichever supply mains or tank was not in use. You would also need a pressure reducing valve on the mains inlet side if you were feeding the system direct rather than via a mains equiped aquaroll and, unless your van has a submersible pump in the tank, I am not sure how a shurflo type inline pump would react to being supplied rather than having to draw water.
There may well be other requirements that I have not yet thought of! The tap and hose tank top up method seems much more viable to me!
For RV's it's standard fitment, I've used two different types. On one you have just a single filling point, plug in to this and the tank is filled and water is supplied to taps. On the other there are two points, one is to fill the tank, the other supplies 'town water' as it's known in US to system at full pressure, this did cause us problems in one RV as it had a dodgy connection to the toilet which leaked under pressure. I don't know how the single filling point system is plumbed in, but for the two filling point system it had a one way valve down stream of the pump beyond which the mains connected, I guess if this was fitted to most vans you would need a pressure reducer to prevent over pressuring the system.
In 20 or 30 years time ' demand ' will quite likely have achieved a mains supply available to every van. Then we can start asking for a constant HOT water supply.
Pops in from time to time Posts: I looked into what the OP wanted to do some time ago. The theory is pretty simple but a lot is dependent on the accessibility inside the tank and the dimensions and type of tank as they're not all a simple rectangular or square shape.
If one of these or similar can be fitted in the tank http: Side entry models are also available.

Our tank doesn't have much depth so a standard toilet cistern fill valve is too long top to bottom. Haven't explored this any further but might just have another look when the weather's better. So what we're doing is basically taking a mains fed caravan Aquaroll that uses one of these http: The on-board MH tank then becomes the same a mains fed Aquaroll on theory.
Edited by ken the kontiki 1: This discussion may be of interest: Edited by Derek Uzzell 1: Many caravans these days have the facility to their water supplies direct to the mains. Like any mains pressurised installation, the pressures are far above what a 'van or MH pump can deliver and it's therefore good practice as Derek mentioned by manufacturers to fit a pressure reducing valve.
However, should this device fail, then the mains pressure could play havoc with the internal pipework and fittings. Even though push fit type fittings are claimed to be man enough for mains water pressures, we all know how good a joint you get when they're installed by some of the muppets at the time of assembly lol. To reduce the risk of over pressurising the internal pipework and fittings, many caravan owners go down the route of the Aquaroll plus mains ball valve kit with their submersible pump in it.
The pump can also be in-board but again, all we're doing is drawing water from a tank that's constantly been topped up from the mains. Think of it as a smaller system to what you may have in your house but with the addition of a pump. If we're at the stage where we just want to connect a hose to the tank filler on a semi permanent basis, then there's this gizmo http: I think this is how many Bailey owners have to fill their tanks as they require a special type of fitting.
Edited by ken the kontiki 2: Ken, you may be right about Bailey owners I guess the OP's point is that if the MH water is somehow connected to mains water for more than a few days than just a tank will supply showers, washing up etc. Means that you don't have some wife or partner screaming that there's no water at 11pm at night and you don't have to get the air out of the pipework when the tank's run dry. We're currently laid up on a site for a few weeks with a mains tap on a bollard adjacent to the pitch.
It's just a case of remembering that every 2 or 3 days we need to pop the hose in the filler hole and re-fill as necessary. Only downside is the available pressure and depending on how empty our tank is, can take up to 30 mins to brim the water tank - heh ho, that's life. As you say, not rocket science but would be nice to have a facility at a relatively low cost that could enhance our experience when pitched up for days or weeks on end.
Edited by ken the kontiki 4: Worry ye not pepe - That 'problem ' is being addressed. Direct connections to sewerage pipes are the future.
