    we drained down from the external heater drain point and left van in storage , just went over yesterday to check ready for new year and problem
    forgot to open taps so pipes now full of ice ,onboard tank got ice in, 1 connection blown and 1 tap broken , left gas fire on all day today , new connection done, new tap fitted , pipes de-iced and run 30 litres of water through , drained down taps open and blown through to empty pipes, onboard tank has still got 1" of water in but not panicking about that as could have been a lot worse
    waste tank seems iced up despite being drained and left open , will sort with some boiling water when home xmas
    :Doh:

    Our shower tap has blown every winter since we bought our mh, hopefully not this winter as remembered to blow it through. Fortunately easy to pop it back with some g clamps.

    First time I've left the taps open so hope we don't get any problems.

    So much to remember to do ::bigsmile:
