It's not until you see helpful hints like these that you realise how little you know about car maintenance!

Always drive with handbrake on when driving up hill to prevent rolling backwards.

If not level when camped up for the night, deflate relevant tyres.

Open up the gas on the cooker to bleed out air pockets each night before retiring to bed.

I thought about these ideas and that is why I filled my cold water tank with antifreeze 3 litres to mix with the water to stop it freezing my taps and hot water heater. It saves time draining down for winter. I also put it in my screenwasher bottle. to clears the smears when it is freezing.
:idea:

Add a kilo of sugar to each tank of fuel, runs so much sweeter. :)

Yeah! I rolled my MH so the gas could escape through the roof.

Remember to leave the doors open at night to let the clutch out.
