Motorhomes offer a great way to travel, but you should never forget to give them some TLC. There are different things you should remember to do because vigilance is the best option. As well as getting a vital motorhome MOT, these are some of the other measures you can take.
Simple checks on the mechanics can help you to avoid a breakdown. They don’t take much effort or knowledge and will greatly reduce the likelihood of delays in your journey. This includes oil, coolant and brake levels. The tyres are also essential so ensure the pressure is correct and the tread depth is at least the legal 1.6mm requirement.
Always ensure that you have enough fuel for the journey. Keep in mind that the battery drains faster in hot conditions; check the levels before you set off. You should also give all lights around and in the vehicle a once over too.
As well as stocking up for the trip, you must take a look at the living area. Water, electrical and gas systems need essential safety checks. You should also let the air flow through on a regular basis to prevent damp. While you open all the doors and windows, you can also inspect for any corrosion, leaks or cracks.
If you do discover an issue it is best to address it straight away to prevent it developing into a worse and more costly situation.
