Default Van closed down until next season :(

I went over to our van last night as I was worried regarding the low temps-we were going down Sat night and closing it down on Sunday but something was nagging me. Stayed over and the temp was so cold that even with the gas fire on full and a 2kw oil filled radiator on full the temp never passed 17 degress. Needles to say, my back, arms etc are so stiff and painful

Good news the van was okay! I have turned water off and opened the taps, paid drain down fee and they are doing it tomorrow as the guy is off site today...lucky I did go down though, the bedroom window was not latched properly and the top was open. When we aired the rooms I had closed the latch into the groove not the frame...all sorted now though

I paid 35.

It is 35 or 65 if you central heating.

Sounds rather expensive for you

I am back at home, but cannot get into a bath by myself. My wife has nipped out and my lad isn't back from college yet. I can wait, unless you want to come around and help me
