I recently put a one way valve between my pump and water tank to stop back flow when connected to town water so a simple job to put a t-piece in below that.

I like the simplicity of the JG connectors and piping.

They make plumbing easy, although I have bought most of my fittings on line for convenience as local suppliers are limited. The price is better as well.
I did use blue and red tubing but I have found using the black thick wall tubing is better to use.

That diverter is a good idea; at present we just put a container under the shower head to collect the cold water prior to the hot coming through.

Now I have the Nissan fixed I t was time to work on the Fridge cooling fan in the camper.

With summer coming on it was time to look at the fridge compartment.
I haven't had any problems but I have not run the fridge long term in summer, so I fave now fitted a cooling fan for the fridge compartment. The fan should push air in at the bottom of the compartment and vent through the top vent.
Using a small 10w solar panel to power the fan so it will only run when the camper is in the sun. I have fitted a DC-DC Converter 24V Step Down to 12V Car Power Supply Module with a Input voltage range: DC 12v-24(24v Max) and Output voltage: DC 12V.
I hope it should stop the fan getting more than 12v when running.

Well done John.

I did similar in my Silverline Caravan however mine sucked the hot air out through the top vent with two computer fans.

After many complaints Jayco got wise and the motorhome has the fans as standard fitting.

I see you are getting closer to finishing your project but I guess there is always a little bit more to be done.
