I tore a hole in my water tank n repaired it and no leak there . But now it seems to leak from the upper top back end of the tank and not where the hoses go in so is that a breathing hole or is something missing?? So is this why the hand pump wont work when pumping either?? Any advice is greatly appreciated and thx . Regards Geoff

Most water tanks have a breather in them, some are internal and have a pipe connecting them back to the filler cap, others are just a beather in the top of the tank.

The hand pumps are notoriously unreliable. Probably has damaged O Rings or the valve is obstructed.

Do you have an electric pump as well?

Lots of people I know end up putting a small in line 12 volt pump in instead of the hand pump. But that pre-supposes that you have a battery in the van.
