    Just returned home from a long weekend trip along the canals here in France. The overnight temperatures have now dropped to around 3 C. I will parking my MH up for a couple of weeks before its next outing.
    I have drained the water tanks, grey water and fresh water and the boiler just in case the pipes freeze up. Its there anything else I should be doing?

    Leave taps open, blow down the shower pipe to clear any residual water.
    Drain flush tank if separate.
    Fit fridge vent covers.
    Open cupboards and raise cushions to avoid cold spots.

    Buy yourself a bottle of spiced rum, a jar of honey and a lemon. Topped up with hot water is the perfect way to prepare for a cold night.
