many many years! since I was a kid
leave blinds retracted and put sheets over the upholstery to prevent fading
plus any would be thief can look in the window and see nothing left in there worth breaking in for

This all depends on the make of blind, some caravan derived blinds (generally ones you pull the blind up) are ok and some other makes you can.

Went to back of Currys and salvaged couple of biggy telly empty boxes (cardboard) cut them out to size/shape of windows and so they slip into gap between Seitz pull down blind and the fly screen and sit on the window frame, does that make sense? totally blocks out damaging UV rays and insulates.

Same as handbrake never leave it on tension when parked up for extended periods. Put in gear and wheels chocked. :)

We have found if you close the van up to light it gets very cold and starts to feel damp. When we leave the blinds/curtains open the sun warms the van up and it stays nice and dry.

That is probably more important advice than the blinds! If the brakes seize in the on position, the only viable way to remove the hubs is with a cutter. If they seize in the released position, the hubs will still come off, and one can repair/replace the frozen parts.

We had a caravan and the blinds were on spring system that you can adjust,the MH we have has a different type that slide up/down so think the answer is it depends on the type of blind.
