Van 87: Packing Heat

  1. Followed you since the narrowboat days. This is my ambo parked in snowbank at -15/ My 4D autotherm did just fine.The issue is with a foot of snow, the solar panels are covered, so I have to rely on my 4 battery bank. Fortunatily I have videos to watch like yours to keep me busy
