Summer 2013

Some thoughts this week.

Its summer and I am still getting calls from customers expecting a service within the next few weeks. You really need to plan ahead and think a few months ahead about your service.

I think that it also important to make a proper booking. Don't just say "when your in the area" because you will never get the job done. A proper booking is vital.

When we order parts it can take several weeks to get what to you is a trivial part. The caravan and motorhome industry is not like the car industry. The supply chain can be very poor. When we do get the parts then please don't expect them to be fitted the next day, we aren't sitting there waiting to fit your parts. Once again you will have to make a booking.

A busy weekend

Its been a very busy Bank Holiday weekend in Derbyshire. The sun has been shining, holiday makers and day trippers have been out and about in their thousands.

The main breakdown areas this weekend have been -

1) Gas regulators failing
2) Water leaks
3) Toilets
4) Batteries

Most of these issues can be avoided by a bit of preparation. You should get your leisure vehicle serviced, that will help to identify some of these problems before they become a real issue. Secondly before you go away set up your vehicle and run everything. If you find problems you can get them fixed before you go away and save yourself some trauma.

Also please remember that caravan and motorhome engineers need some time off too.
