    I love the idea of an oil heater. I'd need to run it off solar power too. Do you know how much power is needed to run it?

    Just came across your channel. Useful items. How do you find the van for 2 adults and 2 children in terms of size?

    Hook up cables are quite heavy when you are rolling them up. We have a 10 metre and a 15 metre, which can connect to make 25 metres. Unfortunately the CMC won't allow cables to be joined, but the CCC will. I store the shorter one above the batter, under the bonnet, along with a litre of oil and some screen was. You don't need a kettle, use a saucepan with a lid.

    Great info. I think I have everything you have recommended except the collapsible kettles.

    Only just found your channel and really enjoyed as well as being useful. Just bought a 58 T5,(still not cheap),
    Could I ask how long you would leave the van charging on the drive/in garage?
    And can you overcharge if left on for too long?
    Thanks in anticipation, coincidentally just bought one of those oil fill radiators.
    Subbed as well.
    Cheers, David. ๐Ÿ‘

    If you are going to increase your power cables to 20mtr don't buy a 20mtr length buy 2×10 saves you having loads of spare cable outside and 2×10 are easier to store than 1×20 mtr. I have 3 cables 1×10, 1×15 and 1×20 and I have written on the plug how many paces each one is in length to make it easier to pick right one. Don't leave cable wrapped around a reel as it can catch fire. Water tank cleaning I put half a tank of water and use the journey to site to slosh the water around to clean tank and flush on site using campsite water instead of ours. We have a toaster for gas hob basically wire mess and handle so you can toast without electricity. Try the pop up buckets to take clothes or dishes to amenity block. The microfiber clothes used for polishing vehicles are handy as a dry down of your body after a shower before using your towel, clothes are easier to dry than big towels. In toilet we use a battery powered led light stuck above toilet instead of van battery off site. 3aaa batteries last over 6 months. If leaving a campsite and doing a long drive use the campsite electricity to fill to flasks of boiling water use 1 to make a coffee half way and the other one to wash dishes when off grid. We use coffee sachets that have powdered coffee, milk and sugar, so stop for a break cups of coffee in 2 minutes.

    Think you'd be better off with 2 10m cables so you don't have to unroll it all when not required.

    You are aware that the ridge monkey handles come off and store on the rear of the utensil tray?

    Great video! Nice accessories for the van. Now if I can only get VW to export the camper vans to the USA, I would have a place to put them.

    Try two 10 metre cables plus a waterproof box for the join. This gives you flexibility when you need it but you donโ€™t have to get out a heavy, cumbersome 20m cable every time you hook up.

    Internal extension cable? Get one with USB sockets included. Handy for recharging phones etc, and loads of gadgets use USB plugs.

    I have also experienced the problem of having a ehu lead that is too short, so would definitely recommend a longer lead. The ridge monkey is brilliant, I baked a pie in mine last weekend. The inflatable solar lantern looks excellent, but I might have to save some pennies first.

    Accessories for the van, eh? Have you found that you could quickly spend yourself into the poorhouse with all the extras? I sure did, plus quickly running out of space to stow it all!

    Outside screen cover is very much more efficient than inside and also prevents condensation
