So guys ,
By the look's of things many of us will be taking the T4 off the road for a couple of months .

Any advise on how to stop the brakes sticking on ? And anything else worth doing ? .

I guess starting it's no problem but it will not be driven around .

Take care
Andy

To answer the original question, park with handbrake off if you can, chock the wheels to stop rolling if needed. Move the van periodically and or over inflate the tyres to stop getting a flat spot.

I haven't used our van in 8 weeks, so we always put chocks under the rear wheels to stop it rolling, handbrake off, in-gear. I normally put a batter charger on once every 2 weeks and take it out to check tyre pressures once a month and for a proper drive to get everything up to temp.

Cracking view Stu, I'll be doing this over the coming months, head out to remote areas of the country to walk / ride. Unless anything changes I feel as long as we're all sensible, we can carry on as we were so some level. There's just no way I could self isolate for days / weeks etc.

If everyone has this attitude then a compulsory lockdown will be coming sooner rather than later. The people who live in remote areas don't need potentially infected people bringing the virus along with them.
Please follow the advice and stay at home.

Hillhead, are we not currently at "social distancing" not lockdown, if I'm still going to work in an office with other people then surely going somewhere else whilst not interacting with anyone (assuming I even see anyone) is ok. Just to be clear, I'm not one of the masses who assembled on a beach. I'm not playing down the severity of the virus, I just think people need to calm down and stop panicking. On that note, anyone know where I can get some loo roll, they're rarer than hen's teeth at the minute? 🤯

It's just nuts, people need to relax as panic buying causing more hassle and stress for everyone. It's the snowball effect.

It's ok mate, I'll invest in some adult nappies :oops:🤣
Im drinking black coffee and wondering why people would stockpile fresh milk ?
That is another problem, people stock piling fresh produce that will likely be thrown out as it goes off.

Unfortunately for every kind good soul that will help out a family member and neighbour, there will be ones who use that to their own selfish gains.

I know that we'll drink more than 3 bottles of wine a week on our own so that means more trips to the supermarket which we are meant to be cutting down on . :rolleyes:
