It’s safe to say that summer is long gone, and we are all now beginning to feel winter creeping up on us. You’ve had your last holiday of the season in your trusty motorhome or caravan, and it’s time to put it into hibernation until spring returns. Of course, now you’ve got those really fun jobs such as draining the chemical toilet and all other water based systems to prevent freeze damage to look forward to, but there’s another equally important prerequisite to storage that is often overlooked – creating a protective layer for the exterior of your unit to protect it over the winter months.
Luckily for you, Opies stock a product that is perfect for creating this protective “jacket” that is durable enough to keep you covered all winter – Fenwicks Over Wintering Exterior Protector.
For those of you that store your unit near any trees are used to cleaning away leaves and branches, and of course the layer of bird droppings that has collected over winter. As you can imagine, all of these elements can be damaging to the bodywork, and this is where Fenwicks Over Wintering can really give you some peace of mind. It creates a protective “jacket” that is designed to repel water, dirt and algae without the need for a cover.
You may be thinking “what if this damages my precious Caravan Club decals and notoriously fragile seals?” Well. Fear not. This specifically designed product is absolutely safe for use on plastics, aluminium, glass, acrylic windows, GRP, ABS, fibreglass, decals, sealants, paint and much more. Simply apply it after cleaning, it really is that easy, have a look below for the 4 steps to follow to ensure you have a caravan or motorhome that’s winter ready:
- Step 1: Clean unit with either Fenwicks Caravan Cleaner or Motorhome Cleaner and allow to dry. Simply click on whichever one of these products applies to you to be taken straight to it.
- Step 2: Mix 1 part Fenwicks Overwintering to 4 parts water. (Usually half a litre of Fenwicks Overwintering with 2 litres of water will cover most units.)
- Step 3: For best results apply using a garden spray or a sponge or a brush. Cover all surfaces evenly from the bottom up, and leave to dry. It will take 3 to 4 hours to dry properly. It’s important to get into all those nooks and crannies to avoid mould being able to form in neglected areas! Your unit is now ready for winter, so sit back, put on the kettle and rest easy in the knowledge that it’s safe until your next expedition.
- Step 4: When spring is on the horizon, and you begin to feel yourself defrosting, it’s time to get that winter jacket off. To remove Fenwicks Overwintering use a 1 to 10 solution of Fenwicks Caravan Cleaner or Fenwicks Motorhome Cleaner.
As you can see, this is a great product that is ideal for the job, and with prices at £9.86 for a litre, (when using your 10% discount code OPIEBLOG for you loyal bunch of blog readers) a little goes a long way and it’s a small price to pay for the knowledge that you are covered throughout the entirety of winter – whatever the weather.
