John Bland,one of my correspondents,commented on the fact that he found the front of the van cooler than the rear of the van.
He pointed out something I did not realise,that there is a heating pipe which passes out from the Whale heater,through the floor to the exterior along the underside of the van and back in again to supply the front vent under the TV.
I had seen this pipe before and not realised what it was.
The pipe is normal grey ribbed plastic pipe which can obviously lose heat along its length as John pointed out.
I was pondering this the other day when up at the storage and decided to visit B&Q/Homebase etc. to see what I could come up with in the insulation line.
The pipe is about 12cm in circumference so the pre-formed polystyrene pipe lagging is too small ( or they just didn't have any bigger sizes in stock ).
Whilst looking in Homebase I came across this stuff :-
which looks just the job.
Bought a couple of rolls ( just over £8 for the two ) and will attempt to apply it after Christmas.
Will post how it went,hopefully with a few photos.
