Hi all - checking in Van Hibernation
« on: January 21, 2018, 02:13:51 PM »
Hi everyone, hope all is well. I was regularly popping in the forums last year when i was building my van but then when it was finished I just got out an used it

It's off to a friend for some extensive welding at the end of the month, I managed to find a second hand awning recently which will make it a little more roomy when it it's raining. I found last year that once the wood burner was fired up cooking tea you had to have the door open otherwise your head would boil

I've also got to fix my electricity yet again as that seems to have given up. I would probably start using the van again from the end of February

Welcome back friend!

I always find it fun that while others are struggling to stay warm, I'm opening windows to keep from cooking...  Too much heat sure beats not enough.

What kind of power problems are you having?
