We had to take TuI, our Jack Russell cross, to the vets for her chemotherapy yesterday. We take the MO HO as we have a bit of waiting around. I went out early to put the heating on and, OOPS! I hadn't turned it off last week. We hadn't used the van since we went to the vet last week, so heating has been on for a week while parked. The leisure battery was fine but I don't know how much diesel it has used. I'm not telling Mrs. Gasman, don't want an ear bashing!

Heating is on for 45 min before we leave so I got away with it::bigsmile:

First thing I do on returning home is plug in the EHU ( mainly for the fridge until we've emptied it). I've lost count of the number of times I've found the heating on a week or more later :).

I usually turn off the 12v master switch when I park in our yard. Then there is no blower so the heater turns off - blown-air not Alde.

If that's an Eberspacher or Webasto blown air unit turning off the supply is not a good idea as when switched off on the control modulator these heaters run a shut-down sequence. Roughly like this the fuel pump is stopped, the glow pin is energised and the fans keep running to ensure complete combustion of any fuel remaining in the combustion chamber until the unit has cooled down.

That sounds like a safety sequence. Is that a problem?
