Any tips on the above please what kit have people tried?

If you have ac, put that and recirculate on.
The evaporator in the ac system is cold and any moisture condenses on it and drains outside from the vans atmosphere, therefore aiding drying.
it works a treat in my van.

In reply to Murg: I reckon if your kit gets really soaked your best off getting s locker for the night for about 5 euros.

They have them in argentiere and theyre great, warmish air blasting through all the lockers 24/7

Cheers

If there's no option for getting them heated then stuff 'em with newspaper overnight.

I use some heater things I got from Amazon. Plug them into your inverter and away you go. Of course you need a leisure battery to run the inverter off of.

We spent a couple of nights in my van in Kandersteg and sat with the engine one and dried out our gear on the heaters. Probably would have been cheaper to pay for somewhere to dry it.... (but it worked)

In reply to Murg: Fit a propex heater? we are just fitting one in our van, with a bit of newspaper or those balls that suck up water they should be ok the next day.

In reply to Murg: Three pairs of ski boots in the back of my camper were a complete pain in the backside this year, next year they're getting dumped in the cab overnight

Gorgonzola flavoured rice - lovely!

I prefer to use the 2.0 ltr diesel engine - which I almost always have to hand, when I want to dry my boots.
