Yeah with a black 30L sun heat sync, 35 - 40 deg C temps, a hot twin poking heat at it the one way valve is probably not the best option.

I swapped the one way valve to the back tank and put the vent tube to the front, coupled with the adhesive sealant etc I would like to think we are sorted.

We were planning on leaving Oaxaca tomorrow however the teachers strike here means the city will blockaded at every exit and the city centre blockaded so we ain't goin anywhere !!!

Time to catch up on trip reports!!!!!
