Spring time for your caravan or motorhome

It's that time of year when you should be thinking about getting your caravan or motorhome ready for the new season. Here are a few hints and tips.

First, get your annual service booked now. Its going to get busy for engineers and workshops and if you leave it too late then you will struggle to get it booked in.

Inspect the vehicle for any damaged caused over winter. Look for cracked seals, roof damage and probably most important take a look at your tyres.


Give your vehicle a good wash down and follow with a wax. I have started using the dry wash fluids which I find excellent on my motorhome.

Flush through your water system and then disinfect it with a proper caravan system disinfectant. Check your taps and water heater.

Clean out the toilet and put in some fluid.

Get the van on charge and make sure that the battery is holding that charge.

Run the fridge on 230v and gas and make sure it works on both. A lot of people say - we never use gas so why bother. The answer is simple, one day your 230v element will fail while your on holiday and being able to run the fridge on gas means your holiday is saved. If you don't run it on gas regularly when you do come to use it you will find that it doesn't fire up.

Storage sites in Derbyshire

I often get asked about storage sites in Derbyshire. I can recommend a really good CaSSOA Gold site. Its Wayside Farm near Matlock, see the CaSSOA wayside farm information page. Its important to know that your vehicle is going to be safe and this site has everything that you would expect when using a storage site.

Bailey AluTech servicing.

There seems to be a lot of confusion over servicing the new Bailey AluTech caravans. This hasn't been helped my some misinformation coming from some dealers. AluTech caravans can be serviced by any AWS  approved workshop in years 1 and 2 but the year 3 service needs to go to a Bailey approved workshop. After this 3rd year service then AWS workshops can carry on with servicing.

New web site

I have updated my web site today to reflect the fact that I am now an AWS approved mobile workshop. This means that I can service your new caravan or motorhome without affecting your warranty.

The weather

So 60mph gales in Derbyshire today. Not a good place for working outside so some jobs being rescheduled to hopefully a better day.
