Ours are so simple no doubt many use them. If it’s cold in the van, put a lightweight layer over your t shirt rather than turning up the heating! A simple throw over your legs is another cheap option. We hate heating on overnight, find it too drying, but we do carry a small oil filled thermostatic radiator in MH, which keeps the chill at bay on very cold nights. Cold feet cure is a simple hot water bottle. 😁

Offer members the option of EHU or no EHU how ECO friendly is that, but of course too much of a hassle for the club to actually do like HS pitches were.

I agree with MichaelT, he beat me to it. Cant be anymore ECO friendly than having your own solar panel/s and making your own electric, rather than plugging in the orange lead

I would not normally comment but I have been banging on about this for years! At the risk of boring the pants off some, I have contacted the club on many occasions and asked for a full and in depth look at the new technologies and how they can be used to amazing effect for caravanner and Motorhomer alike. I have been consistently ignored. They promised a full colour article but preferred to do a half page article by themselves which really covered no new ground on this up and coming awareness. Off grid, for the first time in many a year, actually, for the first time ever, is now able to be carried out at a comfort level compatible with the great EHU. The other thing about Off Grid is that you have to think about water and water will become a major issue in future years. Rather than go to the toilet block and have gallons of hot water at your disposal, my wife or I are able to have a perfectly good shower with approximately 10 litres of water or even less. That is eco friendly. Free power from the Solar Panels into a lithium battery which powers all the appliances you need. I hope the club really starts to encourage the members to start thinking about being self sufficient in power. That will take a monumental effort and will involve the manufacturers as well. When EVs are parked outside every pitch - what then?

Use public transport where ever possible. Club could help by giving more information about this on the site info on the web site. Bus stop within a mile tells you nothing - is it near or far? is there a footpath? Arre the buses more tna once a week (& yes, I know this can change).
