Filling fresh water
The van has a 120L fresh water tank that you can use for showering, doing the dishes and washing your hands.
Draining the grey water
The van has a 120L grey water tank that collects all the waste water from showering, doing dishes or washing hands. It is the same capacity as the fresh water tank, so when you run out of fresh water, you will need to empty this tank.
How to empty the toilet
The toilet is a separate system from the grey water, it is a box directly under the toilet that you need to pull out in order to empty it. It can fill up very quickly if you flush it for a long time. For 2 persons, usually enough for 3 days.
How to turn on the gas stove
It's like a normal household gas stove, push and turn and until you keep it pushed it will spark.
The van has a 12V AC power system charged by solar panels (no need to plug into a camp site grid) and if you need 220V DC (normal EU household electrical plug), you need to turn on the inverter that is converting the 12V AC up to 220V DC. If the battery is drained let's say at night when the solar can not recharge it, you can always start the engine and let it idle for 15 minutes, the alternator of the van will recharge both batteries.
In this clip we show you how the outside locks work.
Opening the windows
Always be gentle and careful with everything :)
In order to have warm water you need to heat it as it is shown in this clip. The van has a 20L tank that is heated by the propane system. You have to wait 15 minutes after turning on and then you will have nice, warm water. Water pump have to be on to heat the water! Should be on all the time anyways.
Toilet how to
Always open it when you sit down, flush with as less water as you can (so it does not get full so quickly) and then close it.
Easy as pie.
Filling up the diesel and adblue
Located at the drivers door you can find the filling necks.
The fridge should always be on if the main power button is not turned off. We always set it to automatic and it is best to leave it as it is.
Checking water and battery voltage
The main power button, the lights button and the water pump button should always be on.
Heating of the van
If you get cold at night you can always turn on the heating.
