Hi Nick, As Ray stated we all have different thoughts on heating our vehicles over winter.
We used our van throughout the year but always kept a fan heater with a frost stat plugged in to keep it warm as and when and never had a problem with dampness. We also left all cupboards and lockers slightly open.
Some others use an oil filled radiator with a separate frost stat built into the system, this also works but I thought that the fan heater spread the heat much quicker. I personally would refrain from using the Truma heater, too much to go wrong and costly to repair.
Make sure when you drain down to leave all faucets open, some people don't and end up with them being cracked, again costly to replace.
Keeping to a rigid set of rules will keep you out of trouble.
This I'll Defend
I would prefer to say that I am British rather than European.
