Hi,

Just noticed all Tanks Drain Bungs are dripping. Do they need to be sealed with silicon or just plumbers tape? Van is only 2 months old.

Regards

Plumber's tape is all I've ever used.

John
Try nipping them up ie just tighten slightly
If that doesnt work plumbers tape
DO NOT use silicon you will never be able to get them out

Use only the plastic type fittings with plumbers tape, and as stated earlier just nip them up, don't over tighten.
Don't use the brass ones, as it is way too easy to split the threaded connection particularly in the older style tanks which are then throw aways. Not sure about the ease of damage to the new style tanks.
