    Hi, looking on a German forum, :Smile: and they are talking about Insulating a waste tank that is under the motorhome and outside in a German Winter COLD :roflmto: Or WORSE :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    They have had all the usual things. :winky: Build a box around it and insulate.

    Someone said put salt in it,:Doh:
    To be told you need 8kg of salt for 50ltrs of waste. To stop it freezing at only -10

    And so on.............::bigsmile::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    But the best so far is.:winky:::bigsmile:

    Put a pipe in and out of the tank, and blow warm air through it.:whatthe: So if you want to get making one, and copy right it.......:Smile: You may never look back...............::bigsmile::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: Bob.

    You have to admire the thought that goes into it,:Doh: I could say in England we leave the drain tap open and put a bucket under it.:winky:::bigsmile:

    I can imagine a German with 50ltrs of water adding 8kg of salt. The secret recipe for -10. :Smile:

    Or better still..........:winky: Buy a German Van with a double floor. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:Bob.
