Hi Darren, yes I had a little self inflicted damage repaired on my van. The door took 10 months to get from Italy so that was the main holdup.
Hi Sean and Tracy, we also have condensation in the top bunk in the morning. I think t is just due to a little hot bodied 5 year old sleeping for 12 hours in an enclosed space. There isn't any airflow when the curtains and shut at the front and the window closed overnight.
In the morning we open the window in that area and over summer she slept up there with the window open. The blackout blind stopped a lot of airflow again but it was a little better.
We try to use ours in the winter as well, if there are just the 2 of us when driving we put a blanket hanging down from the overcab bed to keep the heat in to the cab whilst moving or the hot air just goes backwards.
When setup on site we tend to leave the blanket down to keep the heat from a blower or the heater in the living section as the cab can get draughty.
When on site with EHU we have a electric fan heater and a remote controlled adapter for the socket. ASDA sell 3 for £5. In the morning I remotely switch on the fan heater and give the van time to warm before getting out of bed.
Our van is drained off at the moment, boiler valve is manual on mine under the rear facing seats, main water tank under the forward facing seat has drain valve against the wall that twists.
Waste water outlet open to drain.
Taps all open, shower head off and stored in one of the build in moulded shelves in the shower area.
The toilet cassette is stored in the garage.
I leave the main large window blind open and use the curtains to block out eyes and light , the blinds don't like being down constantly anyway and the springs wear out.
External silverscreen on the front hooking over the doors and tied on to the mirrors.
Alarm on which uses the main battery, crooklock style lock on the wheel.
I have also been using the habitation battery isolator on the side of the passenger seat as once I came out and the hab battery had drained quite a bit. The isolator has stopped this.
They also make excellent Santa Sleighs
Hope you enjoy your van
