Winter Storage

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Now that I have just come back from what might be my last trip out this year. (Hopefully we might get out for an odd weekend). What is the best way of storing everything over the winter?

 

Any tips to look out for? Should I bring home all the seating etc to stop it getting damp?

 

Thanks

 

Tim

Drain the water system. Remove the water filter. Empty the flush tank of the toilet. Close the water inlets/outlets. Spray the two plugs. Remove the battery so that it can be charged. Wrapup the coupling head. If possible, jack up the van so that the wheels will be off the ground. Release the handbrake. Clean the fridge well and leave the door open. Stand the seating on edge.

Someone told me you should leave all the water taps on. Any reason why this should be necessary ?

Yes! a good idea. Since the taps should be open to aid drainage, it's as well to leave them that way. Also from experience with microswitched taps, I believe that they are less likely to suffer from corroded points if the tap is left open.
