    Good evening everyone:thumb:

    Just starting to help my mam in winterizing her Auto sleeper.
    On telling her about draining down and opening taps up she came back with, cant i just add some Non toxic anti freeze like it says in the handbook??
    Apprantly its available at all local motorhome dealers according to her booklet.

    I have never come across this or heard of it before

    Anyone used or heard of it

    Used it through the suzies once to defrost the trailer brakes.

    The boss paid for a litre to replace the 10 cc I used! Big result from an Aberdeen firm!:thumb:

    Just what me and my mam said as a joke.:Rofl1:(Cleveland Sence of humour)

    We are both from Stockton but i live in Southampton now after leaving the Army last year, my mam travelled down 5 weeks ago and is on our front drive.

    Only tried Towsure but they said they had never heard of it. It was just to make things easier for mother.

    Thanks for all your replies and if you locate any drop me the details and i can pass them on. Hopefully price will put her off buying it.

    Admit it sounds a good idea, but what happens if you use van in the winter, do you drain and start again on return?

    No think I will stay with draining, or vodka at least you could drink what you drained.:Eeek::Eeek:

    You drink it Desco.
    The company that produce it claims its tasteless and odourless when mixed in the fresh water tank. £15 for 5L. Dont even know its in there.

    Vodka works for the Russions, never did them any harm:Rofl1:
    Well maybe not.

    Has anyone used it then or has no one survived to tell the tale?

    :Rofl1: I know we sound like horrid people. :Blush:

    The wife said i wonder what the neighbours think of us making a OAP sleep outside in this weather. I did offer the spare bedroom but she would not entertain it. She loves been in her van, even improved her health and cleared up all her ser-ry-a-sis:)Blush:cant spell that skin condition).Ha.

    She loves it here as we live on the edge of the New forest and she can walk all day to her hearts content.
    Wife keeps asking if she has said when she is going :Rofl1:
