– Damp. What is potentially harmful to us, is thoroughly checked for. When carrying out testing, the damp report determines whether it needs immediate action or not.
– Electric systems. This check is crucial as motorhome’s require working systems to make them liveable. You can expect testing of lights, circuit breakers, sockets and other systems. Furthermore, a check for the RCD trip time is necessary.
– Water system. Every tap undergoes testing, as well as valve seals. Moreover, waste water outlets and anti freeze levels are checked.
