As it starts to get colder, checking that your caravan is ready for winter is important. Whether you put it into storage or it will sit on your driveway, we've got a checklist of things to do to keep it in good condition over the winter...
Protect the Exterior
Before taking steps to protect the exterior of your caravan, thoroughly cleaning it and checking for any damage is a good idea. Use products designed for caravans to clean the bodywork, taking special care to remove any signs of mould. You can protect the exterior of your caravan with a cover, or you might use something like a wax coating to provide protection. If you choose a cover, make sure it's breathable. While more expensive than wax, it is reusable. A layer or two of wax can do the job too and washes off easily later.
Another thing to pay attention to is exterior fittings. Check connectors for signs of damage and use WD40 or petroleum jelly to protect electrical contacts. Clean exterior light fittings too.
