It will soon be Easter and once again large numbers of people have been taken by surprise! That's right I am still getting calls from caravaners who want a service or work doing on their caravan before Easter. Please plan in advance, caravan engineers are working flat out at this time of year and they don't have the chance to pull in extra work at the drop of a hat.

Milton shouldn't be used in your water system. Modern boilers need to have a specialised cleaner that will not affect the casting of the boiler. Just visit your local caravan shop and ask their advice.

You can get a caravan service for £100, but if you want an approved engineer with all of the qualifications, training and ability to work on new caravans or motorhomes without affecting the warranty then you will pay much more. Thats because if your a member of the Approved Workshop Scheme (www.approvedworkshops.co.uk) then you have membership fees, training fees, insurances, re-calibration fees etc etc all of which have to be paid every year and they are expensive. As caravaners you want an engineer that will be here next year and that means they will charge more but they will do a thorough job at a fair price. You can find all of the details at the Approved Workshop website or see my own site at www.chasworth-service.co.uk.

I have had a number of people ask me if I have an app. I don't but I do have a mobile specific web page which can be found at www.chatsworth-service.tel.

My final piece of advice today is my old topic of wheel loss. Just buy a torque wrench please. Go to your local car accessory shop and buy a torque wrench for your wheels, it is so important.

Have a Happy and Safe Easter.
