Just put telly on settee and wrap a blanket around it, take bedding home and put crystal bags over 2 sticks on a 1 bucket from b & q put about 6 around van, leave fridge door open, and curtains open let sunshine in, not sure if that helps but never had a problem. Bowls of salt on window sills.

Hmm I would rather not tempt fate so I bring everything home all but the kitchen utensils and store in the spare room till March. A couple of reasons for this is I worry kettles toasters etc will rust. I worry about TV, electricals etc as even though there is CCTV at the site you just never know what people can steal. One easy way for the local burglars is to look at sites go static and they can see what we have or have not left at the van

All closed up for the first time and Ramtech alarm on. TV brought home as it was originally from the conservatory and is really tiny so new larger one will be going down next year. All bedding and cushions etc vac packed. Dry food with a long expiry date left in a storage container in a kitchen wall cupboard. Damp traps left everywhere - probably far more than necessary but it's a learning curve. Every single cupboard door etc left slightly open and all mattresses and seats arranged so the air can circulate. Roll on spring.
