    So as it was **** weather today I decided to get a hole cut in my new van as you do, I was looking for a better soloution that sticking in a heater each night it goes cold and slaming a extension cable in the door each time, thought about adding the blow heater option to my webasto as it seemed a great hassle free idea, but at 400 odd quid and the potential to keep cutting in and out all night long on very cold nights I decided no to that. So bought a nice flush fitting external caravan socket for the van to get power into the van at a simple plug in from the outside house socket, then from there to a breaker and a double 240v standard socket, leading to a nice flat wall mounted heater (yet to purchase) which will be on a thermostat. I will take some pics when all done by Wed. There was also a future reason to doing this as well but just the heater for now.

    I just bought a van. Put a ladder rack on it and it's ready to go. No need to keep it warm or plug it in. I just get in it and off I go to clean some windows

    What works for one or what way one chooses to go in window cleaning may not be the same ethic for another. For me and my business I use a van as I am wfp mostly, along with the other work I use my van for. As for effort, it was no effort at all really and I quite enjoy doing stuff to my van, its my working office and have it how I want it for 'my' business, well nearly anyway.
