Booked an Electrical Warrant tomorrow albeit subject to weather. Snow down South and heading close to us overnight. Thought it was summer? LOL Topped up the LPG supplies and food so ready for next outing with the grand children next week.

The caravan had its 7 year service yesterday. All good. Low damp readings. Sticky trip on the mains panel sorted.

Nothing. Should have given it a good washdown but arrived home to water restrictions.

Who me no way LOL
However I can no report after being home for a week that yesterday I up graded my TV sky box system. That developed faults over the last few days so I changed the entire system dish included.

Have not washed the van yet but my very good wife has done all the interior and washing. Means I will keep her on LOL.

I can't recall ever putting it away dirty but not the end of the world.

Yesterday the last day of 2017 for us downunder I repacked the front locker.
Checked pegs and guy ropes ready for the 2018 first trip mid January. Placed the 2018 calendar in the van. Packed the portable sky dish and lead etc.
Now await chance to wash the van albeit subject to rain and water restrictions.

Had visitors up boxing day, swmbo's birthday used caravan fridge and cooker, as well as the ones in the house, spent Thurs and Fri cleaning both, took my time, even had 40 winks at one point, lay down to listen to the rain on the van roof.
