Has anyone fitted Cak water tanks or any other make? Which ones did you get and how easy is the job? Pictures and advice please?
on mine the cap is white and flush fitting so on my white van it doesn't stand out though on a different colour van it probably wouldn't look to clever....I also solve the problem of having someone putting fuel in it by keeeping the key seperate from the ignition key and in the van....I strongly advise that you position this inside the van as it'll look rank outside. There's also an outside chance of an imbecile ing into it , or filling with diesel!
Cheer,s RodI had exactly the same concerns when I fitted mine!
However I fitted it just as supplied making two straps up to fit to the existing four threaded holes in the chassis. I fitted the drain (used as grey water tank) to a tap just behind the left front wheel 'a la Autosleeper'. That is the worst part of the design as I have already clouted it but I can't see anywhere better so that's where it stays.
Maybe the tank does get hot but it's not been any problem. We've done about 9,000 miles around France this Summer so it's been tested well. I've been underneath the van recently and there are no signs of damage, discolouration or anything else.
I suggest you fit and forget.
Like you I use the rear one for fresh water.
