Hello,
This is my first post.I have a 2017 Mercedes Sprinter 314 LWB campervan.Hopefully I am going on a nice long road trip starting November 12th and getting back home on December 20th.I will be boarding the DFDS ferry North Shields England heading overnight to Ijmuiden Holland.Then heading for Rostock Germany to catch another ferry to Trelleborg Sweden.Then heading north and east up the east coast of Sweden making my way Thru Rovaniemi Finland onwards and upwards to Kirkenes Norway and then the North Cape.My route back will be via Jokkmokk Sweden and anywhere else my heart desires or the road and weather allows.My Sprinter does not come fitted with an auxiliary water heater which you can plug into and keep the coolant warm overnight.I have looked on Amazon and they sell engine oil sump heaters which you bond to the bottom of the sump.Then you plug it in remotely overnight and that keeps the engine oil temp warm to hot.
What do you reckon oil sump heater plugged in or just leave the engine running for as long as possible.Or just as is .............your thoughts appreciated

Hello Trek,
Thank you for replying my has winter tyres fitted,I also have a set of snow chains .The camper has a Diesel night heater for the habitation area of the vehicle.
I have a friend who lives in Tromso he says it never gets below minus 10 on the western coast but plummets inland.

I will post a travelogue with pictures when I get home
