Motorhoming during winter
* Always, when you are not driving, cover the windshield and driving cabin side windows with the insulation cover included in your vehicle. This improves thermal insulation and prevents the loss of heat from living area through the driving cabin.
Close the curtains of the sunroofs to prevent heat loss through them.
Side windows have double structure with air in between them working as insulation, so covering them is not necessary.
* Use engine block heater always for at least 1 hour before starting the engine during cold weather. The connector for block heater cable is located at front bumper and the cable can be found inside the vehicle.
* When the car is being heated, the engine of the warm air blower uses a lot of electricity. Ensure that there is enough electric power and keep the car connected to electricity grid with included electric cable always when it is possible.
Fresh water system
If the water tank of the car has been filled, it is imperative to ensure that heating of the car is turned on all the time to prevent freezing of the water system. Remember to keep the car heated even if you are not staying in it overnight. Keep the car connected to electricity grid with included electric cable to ensure that the battery power does not run out during the night. Check also that gas bottle has enough gas left in it for continuous heating. Rental client is responsible of keeping the car
If the water system freezes, it will damage the water pump and crack facets as well as connections of the water pipes. Total damages will easily exceed 1000 Euros. Insurance does NOT cover damages that happen due to freezing.
In case the car cannot be heated, the water system must be emptied correctly: water tank and water boiler must be emptied, the fuse of the water pump must be disconnected, all the facets must be left open in a middle position (between cold and warm), the emptying valves of the piping must be opened and the shower hose must be left on the floor. Leave everything open in these positions.
Grey water system
Grey water tank is located outside of the vehicle, which means it is not in a heated space. Therefore in winter time the emptying valve of the grey water tank must be kept open all the time, so that water flows straight out of the tank instead of freezing in it and damaging the tank and valve.
The emptying cassette is located in a heated space and does not freeze as far as the car is being heated. Remember to empty the cassette before leaving the car unheated.
