With the camper in the winter
1 Check in advance
Checking a few things in advance is essential before you leave. The normal things, such as checking the battery and radiator, are of course self-explanatory. But checking that you have enough antifreeze is at least as important. Taking an extra jerry can therefore does not seem an unnecessary luxury. You also have to check the oil level. It is even recommended to use slightly thinner oil than usual. Putting oil between the door hinges is also a good idea.
2 Run the engine briefly every day
For the battery, it is also best that you let the motor of the camper run every day at freezing temperatures. Otherwise, you first have a chance of a empty battery, but also a chance of less power from the battery to even a broken battery. And you can miss that while traveling.
3 Ventilate enough
When it is cold outside and the heating is running at full speed inside the camper, you have a lot of chance of condensation. Something you would definitely like to avoid. So ventilate your entire camper enough. It is not a bad idea to put something under your mattress during the day, so that air can get under it. Because the mattress is one of the quickest things to know about this moisture. You can also install an air dehumidifier.
4 Check your toilet
When traveling with your camper in winter, you should also check whether your camper’s water tank is under the insulated floor or above it. When this is under your insulated floor, it is recommended to fill your empty water tank with antifreeze that is especially suitable for campers. Also check that the tank is neverfull to prevent freezing.
