As the busy summer season comes to a close and autumn sets in, you may be thinking about how to prepare your Windermere or Bowness static caravan for winter. Closing down your caravan properly will help to protect your investment during colder months, preventing damage from frost and making sure that your static caravan is ready to enjoy again next year.
BHE’s dedicated team of Gas Safe Registered gas engineers in Windermere and Bowness enjoys years’ of experience in static caravan winter drain down services, supporting owners and site owners across the South Lakes with professional holiday home care.

How to prepare your caravan for a winter drain down
Our BHE South Lakes team has some top tips to help you prepare for your static caravan’s winter drain down. Your drain down should be carried out by an experienced engineer:
- Make sure you know what your insurance policy covers. Many problems caused by frost damage are not covered by standard insurance policies, so a proper winter drain down will help to avoid any nasty surprises.
- Locate your stopcock and turn it off when you leave your caravan for winter.
- Lag exposed pipes.
- Turn off gas and water supplies.
Winter drain downs should be carried out thoroughly and to a high standard to protect against damage. We recommend a professional winter drain down by an experienced BHE engineer.
