Challenger 520 SE Bathroom tap has no cold water flow

Postby BMS_Ian » July 15th, 2008, 9:36 pm

We have recently joined the world of caravans and have bought a fantastic second hand challenger 520 SE. It is perfect in every way apart from the bathroom mono-mixer tap. When turned to cold there is no flow what so ever. The pump light comes on so I am certain that the micro switch is ok. Could it be that the washer or mechanism is faulty? How do I get this apart to have a look?

All help appreciated.

Or it could be an air lock in the cold water pipe.

Would that not eventually clear itself? With a bit of coughing and spluttering?
HOw could I tell and any suggestions for clearing it?

Many Thanks

It should do but air locks can be stuborn.

Try looking at the tech pages on Water Woes here http://www.a-tconsulting.co.uk/caravan_ ... stems.html they may include something helpfull.
