Winterising

We have just popped up for one night to complete the winterisation. The weather forecast is for extreme cold next week so I wanted to top up the antifreeze in the engine and partially drain the calorifier.

The Ebersp├Ącher powered central heating is on a frost stat so should keep the ice out, but in the past occasionally it has run the battery flat so failed to light. I’m hoping the solar panel will topup the battery during the day, but with short daylight hours and fairly low light levels it may not.

This afternoon we drove to Stourport and had a cream tea and some pleasant nattering with Andrew & Sheila and Andrew and Wendy. The six of us are planning a late December/early January cruise on the three boats – providing the weather allows it.
