    If you have a modern charger it will keep your battery/s as good as new.

    You can put a small heater in to keep it fresh.

    The drain on the batteries with some modern MHs is so bad they are dead in a month if you do nothing -- burglar alarm and control panels. That is DEAD as in never to be used again.

    Hi, lots of people keep a tiny bit of heat in the van when it really gets cold. Wood can swell and split and cupboards doors won't close etc

    I don't normally bother, but last winter the wood covering on my fridge door swelled and split:Doh: So I'm thinking of maybe using something like this if this winter is as bad as last year. Anyway, the best thing is to get it of the drive and drive it as much as you can. Welcome to the fun:thumb:

    Bit low I think, we have a 200W in out little van and it just keeps it above freezing. Could do with a bit bigger -- and bigger bills.

    is your RV smaller inside than it looks from the outside Jim....:Eeek::BigGrin:

    This would be suitable for greenhouses less than 6ft x 8ft
