The micro switch that operates the 12v pump for the tap has been playing up for sometime now and there can be some delay in getting the kettle on *shudder!* In the New Forest last week I had to disassemble the tap and ‘short’ the contacts with a knife before a brew was forthcoming.
Clearly some fettling and repairing was vital. On inspection he Micro switch had come to the end of its working life and needed to be retired. However a new tap with integral switch was over £30 and I wasn’t sure I could find one that was the correct fit. Ever one to improvise though I mounted a door bell switch on the side of the cooker unit and fed the wiring into that instead. Job done 🙂 12 seconds of door bell “ringing” equals enough water in the kettle for two mugs of tea. Happy Days
I wish Vanfest was before the summer not after it as I need access to the mega Vdub Auto jumble stores before the holidays not after.
BTW, How’s this for genius when a standard splitty isn’t quite big enough for your needs
