Motorhome Habitation Check

NCC Approved Workshop scheme, industry recognised standard for Motorhome servicing and repair

What is a Motorhome Habitation check?

It is advised for Motorhome owners to have a yearly check to pinpoint any potential problems that could arise and affect the overall health and running of your motorhome. It is important to have new and used motorhomes checked by validated engineers so you do not invalidate the warranty and it will mean your motorhome will hold its value.

When carrying out habitation checks our technicians will look at the electric, gas and water systems, look for damp areas which could indicate leaks, all the appliances for any faults, and the security of the motorhome such as window locks.
