A habitation check is a full health assessment of your vehicles living area. Ensuring your van is safe. If your vehicle has any kind of warranty it is usually a condition that an annual habitation check is carried out.
Our technicians will inspect all safety elements within your motorhome or caravan, including the electrical system, gas, water, fire safety as well as bodywork externally and internally.
Below you will find details of the systems that are included during your habitation check. Theses checks are carried out by fully qualified electrical & Gas Safe engineers.
All water and plumbing systems are checked for leaks. A more thorough examination may be performed if there is any reason to believe plumbing systems are damaged. A technician will inspect all water taps and wastewater discharges. They will inspect the toilet and seal and, if installed, the wet heating system.
Electrical systems and components are inspected during a habitation check. The check includes looking at all internal and external lights along with their sockets. Technicians also check circuit breakers and all electrical appliances, such as refrigerators.
Just like water and electrics must be checked, so must a motorhome's gas systems. Technicians thoroughly inspect gas systems in order to identify any leaks. They also inspect ventilation, safety features built into the system, and all appliances that run on gas. This includes a gas-fuelled water heater.
A damp check is included with every habitation check. This procedure is intended to reveal any dampness inside a motorhome before it causes too much damage. Technicians expect to find at least some moisture, but readings that seem excessively high could indicate that water is getting into the unit through windows, doors, or vents.
entilation is also examined to make sure it is working properly. Poor ventilation can result in dampness trapped inside the motorhome. Any such dampness would need to be addressed as quickly as possible.
A habitation check includes testing fire and CO detectors to make sure they are in good working order. If a motorhome is equipped with fire extinguishers, these will be examined as well. An expired extinguisher would need to be recharged or replaced.
