More about keeping warm

wasabi hot sauce

Apart from hot food and drinks (the sauce is available from Amazon) , keeping the insulated panels for the cab firmly in place is a good idea. The original suckers , which came with the universal kit from ebay, used to fix them in place turned out not to be as effective as first thought. Fitted much more functional ones to all the insulated window “blinds” today and wired them in place with plastic coated wire. I reinforced the “bubble” type sheets with heavy duty duct tape where the sucker mount pins fitted and the additional fixing wires were pushed through the material. Each pad now has 4 fixings , one in each extreme “corner” and they work much better. Much more like a sat nav fixing now than a cheap Christmas decoration. Quite a bit of work but we now have a fully functioning set for the cab and rear door glass. My wife is planning to line the curtains next for those very cold winter nights. We also plan to fit a cross cab curtain behind the seats for privacy when the porta-potti is needed for a quick comfort break in daylight hours


Now much more secure method of fixing. Should keep the van cool on those hot sunny days in France too
