    First freezes are due for a lot of the UK this week. Don't forget to drain down your water systems. Burst pipes are a pain, broken water boilers really hurt the wallet:Eeek:

    all done

    all done... remember if you have an outside shower (many RV's do) to drain any water from them as well and leave the taps open....

    I keep a 110w tube heater in the RV and with the normal log gas boiler set to just above freezing I find that keeps everything in good order...

    Erm, What do I do for heating and hot water after I have done this? How long do I need to leave it empty for? :Doh::Doh::Doh::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    well it was cold here last night

    No frost at 8.45 when I came in last night.. very cold.. by 10 p.m the cars were covered in frost.. very cold night in Tunbridge Wells last night... nice bright day today... bit worried over my last peppers.. most have been picked for drying or have been pickled, but still had a few left of the bushes...
