Motorhomes not only require annual mechanical servicing such as exhausts, brakes, and suspension, they also require professional testing of the household aspects like the electrical system, water system, gas boiler, and damp proof testing. This is called a habitation service or check. The habitation check is most important to allow early detection and rectification to avoid potentially costly repairs.
At Roseisle, we recommend that you carry out your motorhome habitation service annually to ensure your Motorhome or Caravan is maintained and in good working order.
Annual motorhome habitation services are a must if your vehicle is under manufacturers warrantee and failing to carry out a habitation service might result in the vehicle warranty being cancelled.
Some camping sites are now asking for proof of a recent ‘Habitaion Certificate’ to prove the vehicle is in ‘good working order’, before being offered a pitch on their site.
Key points checked during a habitation inspection.
Water ingress is the most under estimated factor in a motorhome or caravan. If the damp is not identified and cured in time, it will result in a costly repair bill. Annual checks can prevent this from occurring.
