Remove any bottles containing fluid ... if they freeze and pop their tops they'll make one heck of a mess! :D


But only when they thaw!

Good one Rich - obviously your not on the bottle, at the moment I mean.


Been looking at gas bottles most of the day on and off just whiling away the rain and wind!

Braunston -


A good and well-advised list.


Unless you and your MH live in Spain, in which case the weather is now just about right for forays around the country in your motorhome. (Too damn hot until now).

We had a problem one year when it was extremely cold and water was left in the pipes.


Now if I drain down the water system I take the head off the shower and blow down the pipe, leave all the taps open and the remaining water will drain out.


Also U Bends under the sink, drain those as well.


The best way to solve the problem is head for the winter sun.
