I don't understand this at all.
This is how I might use my van in a week - leave it at home for a day, drive it to my dancing lesson and leave it parked outside for a few hours, drive home. Drive to the supermarket, leave it in their carpark while I shop, drive home. Drive to a friend's house for a party. Leave it on the street outside and sleep in it, drive home in the morning. Drive to the beach, park up, might drive home, or might stay the night and drive home in the morning.
I don't understand the rule you've been told.
Which bit of my itinerary would leave me uninsured? Can I park outside a friend's house? How long for? Is it a problem if I leave it there overnight? Does it matter whether I stay in my friend's spare room, or whether I sleep in the van?
When I park at the beach not yet knowing if I will drive home or stay the night, when does the van start to be uninsured? At midnight? Or what? And does it matter if I sleep in it, or stay in a hotel? Or indeed, go to a club and party till 5 am?
Logic dictates that they must be making it up.
