Regular Checks and Maintenance

Just like any other vehicle, your motorhome requires regular checks and maintenance to keep it in top condition. This includes monitoring fluid levels, checking the engine, and inspecting the tyres condition and pressures. Regularly scheduled maintenance should also encompass servicing the vehicle's essential components, such as the brakes, suspension and exhaust system.

Engine and Mechanical Servicing

The heart of your motorhome is its engine, and proper servicing is crucial to its longevity and performance. Regular oil changes, filter replacements and tuning of the engine are essential to keep it running smoothly. It's advisable to keep to the manufacturer's recommended service intervals and to seek professional help for any complex servicing requirements.

Habitation Servicing

In addition to the mechanical aspects, the habitation area of your motorhome requires attention and care, including servicing the gas appliances, water supply and electrical connections to ensure the safety and functionality of your living space. It's important to have these systems serviced by qualified professionals to maintain compliance with safety standards and regulations. Its like an MOT for the living area and is essential to ensure safe usage of your home on wheels.

Bodywork and Exterior Maintenance

The exterior of your motorhome is exposed to the elements and requires regular upkeep to preserve its appearance and structural integrity. Inspecting the bodywork for any signs of damage, addressing any rust or corrosion, and maintaining the seals and joints are important. Additionally, keeping the vehicle clean and applying protective coatings can help safeguard it against the effects of weather and road conditions. Here at the RV supercentre we can carry out all elements of bodywork repairs and maintenance in our approved workshops.

Safety and Security Features

Regularly servicing the safety and security features, such as checking the functionality of smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors and inspecting the integrity of door and window locks, are vital measures for safeguarding the well-being of you and your fellow travellers. Prioritising the maintenance of these features not only enhances your safety but also creates a worry-free environment while you’re on the road.

Damp Surveys

Regular damp surveys help identify and address any potential effects of moisture and mould before they escalate. In addition, they can help maintain compliance with warranties and preserve a safe and healthy environment for you and your fellow travellers.
