water tank
Happy new year everyone. My RL28 has developed a leak in the galley water tank and created much confusion and threatened to cancel my Christmas trip! Disaster avoided by draining the tank at 01:30 on boxing day.
Any suggestions on replacement or repair? I don't appear to have any access to this area,
Cheers Martyn

Re: water tank
Martyn.
If your galley water tank is factory fitted you will find it on the left of the galley under the aft end of the starboard berth, it will be 306 stainless steel. My first guess would be a perished delivery hose.

Re: water tank
Martyn, I took my tank out and had it repaired. you can email me and I will send you some photos. You need to unscrew the bulkhead and remove to access the tank. The stainless tank had a few splits at the seams. I replaced all the hoses at the same time and double clamped them.
