Heidi mainly encountered issues when the chilly winter months rolled around – and so too did the sub-zero temperatures.

Explaining how they would usually get their water supply from outside via taps or cans, simple tasks would get become trickier in the colder moments.  

She said: ‘One of the things that I used to hate was when your water freezes so obviously we are talking about the winter time.

‘We keep our water outside in cans or are tap either way the water can freeze – it can get that cold.’

Her following issue was frozen water-adjacent, as another problem she found with living in a trailer was frozen washing machines.

Heidi added: ‘So the next one it kind of feeds into the last one your washing machine freezes.

‘Our washing machine wires were outside -in the shed outside. It’s inconvenient enough that you have no water.’

Divulging on the aspects of trailer life that she did not miss, Heidi hoped viewers could attempt to understand how difficult it would sometimes be. 

She revealed that even the simplest of tasks, such as making a cup of coffee could be a challenge, especially if the jug of water in the home was empty, meaning a trip outdoors to get it filled.

‘I know it sounds so stupid but what I am saying is there is a job before everything. You have to be on top of everything,’ she stated.

‘If the jug is empty just fill it immediately because if you want to go and get that cup of coffee in a minute it could be p****** down.’

Her final reason was also weather related, touching on how difficult it was to keep the space clean when a downpour had begun.

Heidi told her following of over 51,200: ‘ Another thing I couldn’t stand was like, you know ,when it’s raining or whatever.

Mainly her gripes were with the bad weather, elaborating that it was difficult when their water supply and washing machine would freeze
