    Very helpful, especially for the many new owners over the past two years.

    If you have a 240v electricity supply to your van consider a dehumidifier eg Meaco Zambezi with timer and run it for an hour a day just before dawn with it’s hose leading to a drain eg in the shower. Also use it when sleeping in the van over winter. has the benefit of drying the air as well as providing a small amount of heat. Leave your waste tank drain open to dispose of condensate

    Leave the handbrake off and chock one of the wheels and as Jon White suggested go through the motions with air con as this also can seize up and also run through the gear’s and dip the clutch as this also can seize up

    If on hook up, the use of a dehumidifier on the humidistat setting keeps everything bone dry. We take one with us in the winter when its wet outside and you can’t avoid bringing in wet clothing, we hang them in the shower room with the dehumidifier on which dries them in no time.

  7. Jon White says:

    If you start the unit, give the aircon time to get going too. This will do two things. It will dehumidify the air to some extent and by circulating the coolant in the system, it will reduce the risk of eals drying out.
