After posting on a different thread about night heating in your van, does anyone on the forum find that by leaving the van blower heater on ovenight even on a low setting gives them a dry throat in the morning, if yes, does anyone have any suggestion to counteract this (apart from the obvious don't leave it on over night)?

Get a van with Alde radiators, temp control is much better than warm air and no dry throats.

Yes Ozzy, that happens with us, you can reduce the effects a little by having the heater on 500 watts and leaving the fan off. Even when we do this we find that by 2.00 or 3.00 am the van is too hot, and this is in Jan and Feb. I wish I could afford an upgrade to a van with Alde heating but it is not going to happen for us.

Have you tried to leave a small bowl of water out on the worktop this will cause the air not to be so dry as a small amount will evaporate overnight into the air

Evening All.
Thanks for the tips so far. Food for thought and a couple of ideas for next season (apart from the Alde, can't quite stretch to retro fitting to the Rimini but thanks anway)

Sounds like a brilliant idea, I think 'Er indoors may have something to say about it though, stil,,l, if I manage to get 'Er indoors to sleep in the awning, I might give it a try..

You can try putting water in an unglazed teracotta pot on a plate or in front of one of the blower outlets.
This should work in a similar way to a radiator humidifier.

Glad your heat comes out warm lol, by the time it's travelled round the pipes in our van it's Luke warm at best :(
But I do like the idea of keeping a beer by the bed, but for medicinal purposes only lol
Cheers John

Or better still drink the beer before you go to bed and plenty of it then you won't give a heck if the air is dry or not
