Owner Checklist

Although a mandatory test for your caravan is not required, we certainly recommend spending a short amount of time carrying out some checks to ensure it is safe for your next trip.

Non-time consuming checks that you can perform yourself;

  • Pressure and condition of your tyres.

  • Wheel nut and rim tightness.

  • Breakaway cable and clip condition.

  • Friction pad wear.

  • Coupling head greasing.

  • Hoses and connections for gas and water.

  • Vents.

  • Battery.

  • Connections including road lights.

  • RCD cut-out test switch.

It is highly recommend to have an annual service. This is essential to ensure your safety, but also ensure any minor problems do not become dangerous or costly.

The service, should be carried out by a qualified engineer, checking the following;

  • Hitch head coupling

  • Chassis

  • Bodywork

  • Damp Testing

  • Tyres

  • Brakes

  • Suspension

  • Handbrake

  • Appliances - Gas / Water / Electrics
