What to consider when camping in winter
La climatology It is the main factor on which camping in winter depends. In areas with snow and ice, from CamperDays, it is advisable to park -as far as possible- in areas without snow or ice, so that when it thaws, the motorhome does not sink or tilt. “The best thing is to place the chocks, which are usually part of the basic equipment of your rental camper, under the wheels. In case of doubt, you can also ask for boards at the campsite and use them. Release the handbrake after parking and cover it to prevent it from freezing.
El use of hot water This is something that should also be taken into account. “If you fill the boiler with hot water, use it so that the warm water comes out, since the cold can freeze in the pipes when the temperature is below freezing. The ideal is to heat the waste water tank of the caravan. If this is not the case, you can ideally direct the water from the campsite's outdoor stream into a bucket through a hatch or valve. And finally, it is always better to use the campsite's mains electricity to conserve the battery.
