Coming into 2020, the world is focusing heavily on being more eco-friendly and leaving less of a carbon footprint. We’ve come up with some tips for living greener when travelling with your motorhome or caravan this New Year.
Consider investing in some solar panels to power everyday necessities like the fridge or lighting. With options that won’t break the bank or require specialist installation, solar energy can be an achievable eco-friendly option for providing power to your motorhome. Our on-site service centres can supply and fit optional extras such as solar panels, just contact us to find out more. On a smaller scale, gadgets such as hand-cranked lamps or radios can further reduce the need for grid electricity.
Healthy and Happy
While we always recommend keeping your motorhome fully serviced and maintained to keep it running reliably, there is also the added benefit of ensuring it is as energy efficient as it can be. This includes keeping an eye on your tyre pressures, which can have a significant impact on your fuel efficiency! Book your motorhome in for its annual service or habitation test with us here!
Making sure your motorhome is suitably insulated not only keeps you snug in the frosty winter nights, but also reduces the need for energy-guzzling heaters. Invest in some good quality fluffy socks, and ensure your windows are properly double glazed before setting off on any trips this winter.
Recycle and Reuse!
Invest in a set of good quality reusable plates, cups, and cutlery to reduce the waste produced by one-use plastic alternatives. Make use of recycling bins where you can to dispose of your plastic and cardboard rubbish, and finally, an obvious but still important reminder to pick up all your litter before you head home.
