Depends if you are using it regularly. If its likely to be stood over winter outside for weeks without use then empty water tank & pipes as it is possible for plastic plumbing parts to split if water freezes inside them.

Hi for what it takes to refill the van you should drain it down.
Even a lite frost can split a tap sometimes it can be the way the wind is blowing upping the chill factor even if it doesn't look freezing .

Chill factor is feeling colder than it actually is due to wind or speed. It is not a drop in ambient temperature. The ambient temperature stays the same whether you are stopped or doing 60mph.

We usually drain our tank at the end of the season (including the hot water tank's separate drain after making sure the heater's turned off). We do this at the last campsite we're at as we don't like flooding the gravel outside the house. It doesn't take long to refill if the weather stays mild enough for another trip. But the one year we didn't, there was a very very cold spell (minus 10 deg, the river froze over) and our water heater bust (using a non-technical term), a pricey replacement. Plus, though we don't drink the tank water from the tap (we top up non-spill bottles from a tap on site) it's nice to have fresher water for the coffee & cooking than water that's been lying in the tank for goodness knows how long, especially as I've no idea what are old tank is made of.

Many thanks for these responses - just in time as the coast here in Dover is going to get colder from tonight!!!

We will be using the van regularly as it is parked outside our home. A new toy has to be played with. Might even use it tomorrow. C/Day!

Solved Christmas present problem by buying several van extras.

Best wishes to everyone - Michael
