    For the first few winters that we had the van I used to run an oil filled radiator overnight to keep the temperature above freezing. Last winter I didn't use it as much and it didn't make any difference so this time I decided to do without it at all, just did the normal drain down and kept the batteries topped up from time to time.

    Because of the much harsher weather I took advantage of better temperatures today to check the water, gas and electric systems and everything is fine :thumb::yeah:wooo:clap:

    Drained it down again just in case but all we need to do now is identify somewhere to go and get away for a few days.

    We fancy doing more CLs this year and may well join the C&CC for their CS network.

    We use the CL and CS networks extensively Graham. We have found them to be great and can save a fortune in summer when we don't need leccie for heating. £5 a night is not uncommon. :thumb:

    Any suggestions for not too far from here Ken?

    We will indeed Roger. Might take us a while to save up the fuel costs for visiting the deep south though :Laughing:

    there is a CL next to the pub at Cropton Graham as you need leccie this time of year. Good food at pub and their own micro brewery ales we tried were excellent.

    Later in year when they open carry on up the road thro Cropton village and there are about 3 CL's all £5/£6 a night. :thumb:

    Yes, thanks Mike. That was another attraction of the C&CC for us.

    Thanks Ken. Not sure how much I would save at a CL with a micro brewery though :Laughing:
