Handy Tips for Winter Touring

Caravanning through the winter months can provide some of the best trips away. Here are seven handy care tips if you have decided not to lay up the van, and are instead planning on some winter touring.

  • 1. At the end of each outing always drain the water system, toilet system and water heater. Remove the water filter as damp can turn to frost and cause permanent damage to the filter.

  • 2. If you wish to leave water in the system over winter use pipe lagging to protect the water pipes.

  • 3. As Butane Gas freezes at below 4 degrees C, you must use Propane.

  • 4. Keep the leisure battery charged and if in the same place for long periods, move the electric hook up cable to avoid it freezing.

  • 5. Ensure that all mechanical parts of the van are in top working order, including the brakes, the jockey wheel, the levellers, handbrake etc.

  • 6. Ensure any moving parts are well oiled and maintained.

  • 7. Find caravan sites to use throughout the winter with our open all year campsites search.
