Mobile motorhome servicing covering the Lincoln area
A habitation check is a detailed examination of the living area of your motorhome or caravan providing you with a written report and evidence of problems found, or just a clean bill of health. This is usually done annually.
Why Get an Annual Habitation Check?
- Safety — to protect your family and loved ones.
- Warranty — to avoid invalidating your motorhome warranty.
- Maintaining value — a history of regular services and maintenance will enhance the value and saleability of your motorhome.
- Identifying problems early — catching a problem early will prevent what could be a quick fix from turning into a costly repair.
What to Expect From Your Motorhome Service (Habitation Check)
A motorhome annual service is referred to as a “habitation check” and takes approximately three hours. It's a full and detailed inspection of the interior of your motorhome's living area, services and appliances as well as internal and external bodywork.
All gas, water and electrical systems and appliances are checked for safety and serviceability. Window and door seals are checked. I even lubricate your locks.
A damp check is completed in accordance with AWS guidelines to ensure any water ingress is identified and appropriate warranty/non-warranty repairs completed to required standards. The AWS provides a current matrix of motorhomes by manufacturer and identifies how each should be checked (with which tools, etc). A report is provided to show moisture content around your vehicle.
Once your habitation check is complete, you’ll be given a full written report showing all items checked, readings taken and any issues identified or observations that I need to make you aware of. I'll flag up any specific issues requiring immediate attention.
If you'd like me to do any remedial work, I can supply an accurate quote for the parts and labour. No work takes place without your express permission.
What I Don't Do on a Motorhome Habitation Check
A habitation check isn't an engine service. I don't service the engine or brakes on your motorhome. The engine, brakes, chassis and component parts that make up the base vehicle are checked and serviced for roadworthiness by the manufacturer under your warranty.
