Why do I need to have my motorhome habitation checked?
Leisure vehicles need to be habitation checked regularly to ensure that they are road worthy and that they are habitable to live in.
Habitation check is also a main criteria that needs to be done to ensure your motorhome maintains its manufacturer’s warranty (if applicable).
How often should I get my motorhome habitation checked?
Just like a car we advise you have a service every year. Even if you aren’t under warranty.
This is to ensure that your motorhome is safe but it will also save you money on spending out on huge repairs. As we have seen many times, problems that go undetected can be costly in the long haul.
Depending on how often you travel and if you are touring over unsurfaced roads then you may want to consider servicing it more than once a year.
Could not having a habitation check invalidate my warranty?
Yes. It does depend on the warranty agreement however, in majority of cases the agreement is that you will need to service your warranty to ensure it stays valid.
Be cautious and ensure you read the servicing / habitation schedule as manufacturers can be quite strict on this. Missing a habitation check by a day could invalidate the warranty.
Are your engineers qualified to carry out a check?
Yes. All of our engineers are AWS approved and are trained to the highest recommended standards.
With over 30 years combined experience and a fully equipped workshop we have all that is needed to identify any issues that may occur to prevent any long term damage.
During the service, will the gas appliances in my motorhome also be serviced?
Our motorhome habitation check doesn’t service gas appliances however, they will be safety checked and reported back if any defects have occured. We can carry this out if you requested us to do so (at an additional cost).
Which makes and models of motorhomes can be serviced by you?
The AWS scheme is supported by all major manufacturers, so doesn’t matter what type of motorhome you have we will be able to service it for you yet still maintain your manufacturer’s warranty.
How long will the service take to complete?
A motorhome habitation service can usually take up to 3 to 4 hours. However, you don’t need to wait around. You can drop it of and pick it up at your convenience.
What work is carried out on a motorhome habitation check?
We work to a specific AWS Approved Workshop checklist. This checklist includes checks such as; electrical systems, water system, ventilation, bodywork, damp check, fire & safety and much more.
