    I’m glad you’ve sorted it, Dougie.

    Regarding a split in the tank, whilst the actual physical repair might be straightforward, getting the tank OUT could be a horror of a job I guess.  Knowing how motorhomes in general, and Hymer in particular, are built, it wouldn’t surprise me if the water tank was the first thing fitted and the motorhome built round it!!  I jest, but it could be a very difficult job removing the tank, perhaps even taking out walls, etc.!  Freezing would probably occur in the pipes first.

    So… if you get the slightest inkling that you need to leave the Exsis in a frost-prone situation, then think again!  The consequences of a frozen system could result in damage and maintenance problems beyond your wildest dreams!

    Thanks again, Dougie.
