    Every winter we put in moisture traps and it’s amazing how much water they capture,and they don’t cost a fortune.Get them from Poundland,Pound stretches,B&M.Well worth it.

    I put seat covers on the cab seats. The same pair are now on our third Motorhome, same fit & same Ducato base vehicle. When removed for part- exchange, the front seats still look like new

    Lots of good advice, I use a air conditioner smoke bomb twice a year if you follow the instructions it keeps the aircon bacteria and fungus free, I also use a foam aerosol sold by Toyota to treat the air vents it comes with a probe the you attaché to the aerosol and feed into the air vents so you can inject the foam treatment that self dissipates leaving the air vents fresh and odour free.

    Good work! I really appreciate you guys.

    Another tip would be to remove the carpets we get, (they don’t in Proper Europe) and store them in your loft. Then when you sell, they will be all shiny and new and look yummy, not gummy.

    I was astounded to find that on a new Fiat Ducato, the first oil change from new is supposed to be 30,000 miles! Blow that for a game of soldiers, I changed mine at 5,000. I guess the manufacturer’s figure is aimed at the normal commercial vehicle purchaser who will run the vehicle for ten hours a day, when the wear is less, so 30,000 miles would probably be covered in less than the first year. It only holds 6 litres, so it’s not even as if there is a lot of oil sloshing about to dilute the carbon deposits.

    Place corrugated cardboard under the mattress to stop condensation and mould forming on the underside of mattress.

  8. Phil Stone says:

    1 use crumpled up newspaper inside fridges and freezer compartments to prevent formation of mould – it is effective
    2 Use an old toothbrush to remove the buildup of green algae around widow and door seals etc
