April update

Its been a while since I last posted as its been an extremely busy time. Spring is a time when caravaners in particular want servicing and repairs carrying out. It would be much better to plan your servicing, you don't have to have your service carried out before you use your van. Would you organise your car servicing every spring? Engineers have more time to help out, carry out small jobs and give you advice during other times of the year. A good time to have a service is the Autumn before you lay your van up for winter. At the same time as the service we can help drain down the van, grease will be sprayed on moving parts protecting them over winter and generally getting the van ready.

I still find the caravan and motorhome industry very amateurish in comparison to the rest of the vehicle industry. Did you know that the industry doesn't even advise engineers of serious safety issues. There has been some serious safety concerns about certain underslung motorhome gas systems. The National Caravan Council knew about it, they published safety advice but didn't pass it on to the Approved Workshop Scheme - so no one told the engineers. Oh and the Approved Workshop Scheme is located in the offices of the National Caravan Council. COME ON GET A GRIP.

It is the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show 2016 at the NEC Birmingham from the 23rd to the 28th February 2016.  If you haven't been to one of these shows before then its worth the visit to see the new vehicles, accessories, campsites, tow cars and of course the MCEA.

http://www.caravancampingmotorhomeshow.co.uk/

The mobile caravan engineers association www.mcea.co.uk will once again have a stand at the show. See  https://www.facebook.com/themceapage/ for their Facebook page. If you haven't seen the MCEA its an association of like minded engineers who cover the UK and offer servicing, repairs and accessory installations. Many of their engineers are also members of the Approved Workshop Scheme which means they can even service your new vehicle under warranty.

So if you need your caravan servicing, want to talk technical or just see who we are then join us on stand 2300.

See you there...

Spring approaches, time to book your motorhome or caravan service.

Here we are at the beginning of February and its like spring outside. I can count the days of frost this year on one hand. Its very odd...

Easter is very early this year and many people like to get their caravans serviced in time for the holiday period. Chatsworth Motorhome & Caravan Servicing has very few spaces left prior to Easter for servicing so please don't delay. Make your bookings soon.

We now carry out full testing of your RCD during our service, this is a change to how we carried out the RCD test before. Previously the guidelines were for engineers to electrically and mechanically check the RCD by using the test button. We are now carrying out a full electronic test to improve your safety.




We continue to invest in our business to give you the best service that we can. Take a look at our website at www.chatsworth-service.co.uk or see our mobile site at www.chatsworth-service.tel

It's important to take care of your caravan or Motorhome in the high winds.  Ensure that you keep everything tied down and don't open your skylights.  Keep safe.
