    I fill up my water from the house, with an outside tap, and this year I will have to turn the outside tap off to stop pipes bursting, how does everyone else get round this matter?

    You say this year you will have to turn off so I presume you used It last year. Did it burst last year? I have a tap in garage so although cold not as cold as beaing outside will see how I go. Really need to sort out insulation for tank and van though.

    Think you need to pay some license or something for that.

    Hi chaps.
    I have just set up my own LPG boiler in my van. I tried it inline with my wfp system, pure water pumped through the boiler then throughout hose to pole. Didn't work very well as the water volume through the boiler wasn't enought to keep the auto lighter lite. So then just pumped 25lt of pure water through boiler into another 25lt barrel. The result was a very hot plastic barrel of water. too hot really a bit wobbly. Worked well on a first clean I did. And when it gets colder I'll use it to keep my equipment working. Anyone else use hot pure water through a gas boiler?
    Cheers

    Do you have an idea how much this license costs, because I cannot find any info in the web?
