We visited our van today ,the excuse was to move the fixed seating cushions away from the walls thanks Ang and get a heater for home...guess who forgot it
This year the winterisation drain down has been done by the plumber as per insurance.......Can honestly say that we were taken aback with the draindown in a very good way.....the thermostatic shower had been removed and the water heater actually had the waterpipe disconnected and all the drains were actually disconnected and placed in the van
In fact my wife asked if we had to pay to get it connected again

Hi All
