    The easiest solution is to ring Romahome and quote the build number the average paylod for a type 2 relay is 439KG less any additions you have added if it was second hand I doubt if you will have Cat 3 winterisation but look underneath to see if both water tanks are lagged, you dont say what year it is

              Er cat3 winterisation? Please enlighten me. Is this something that also applies to an R20 2008 base vehicle but new conversion? Now I'm getting seriously worried by a serious gap in my knowledge and want to be sure the van is ready for winter.

              A while ago someone kindly referred me to Ant's advice re winterisation of a van.

              I had understood that, once it is evident that frost / winter was imminent, it would be wise to:

              1.totally drain the water system in the housing pod and leave the tap open. Then presumably to rely on an independent water source (eg a plastic water container and plastic bowl).

              2.Uncertain re the loo - perhaps rely on those on site? Add a drop or two or antifreeze or would that be a chemical disaster?

              3. nowadays ethylene glycol is in the system all year round, isn't it? (ie antifreeze )

              4. Vaseline and oil all rubber bits eg round the windows, also the locks

              5. heating the van, when camping, either with a simple heater or by boiling the kettle for a min or two. Also using the external silver screen.

              Please could you advise me if there is anything else I need to remember to do?
              Carpe diem! :)

                  You are spot on don't worry.I was asking because its advertised on the new Dimension blurb. we do the same as you and I am quite happy with a plastic bowl.We go on the theory take as little as possible.
                  I had a chat with Alf 39 who was brilliant and very up to date with what's what. I know now what to look out for and what to check and what is the best model. decided to see how the sale of the Duo goes and then take the advise he has given me.
                  The forum is so good for advise . I always check before doing anything.Sorry if it worried you.

                    Draining Down

                    Hi NomadSue2011 its always a good idea to take the van for a 20 to 30 mile run after draining down leave all drain taps and internal taps open the road vibration should help to drain all the pockets of water out of odd twists and bends in pipework etc. I also use my small air compressor to blow out the water pipes.We use the van all year round so we carry a container of fresh water but tend to fill 2 large flasks at home when off for the day then as we use these we boil the kettle to refill so then we always have a supply of hot water
