Now's the time to book your Spring Caravan or Motorhome Service

Now's the time to book your Spring Caravan or Motorhome Service

The start of February is often the time when the first, tentative signs of spring start to emerge.  Daffodils are starting to come up, the snowdrops are in flower and the evenings are getting noticeably longer – it may even be light when you are leaving work!   

Here in Somerset, we usually benefit from mild winters so things are starting to wake up in the flower beds around the park and we’re all looking forward to the start of the new season with the first pitch and static home bookings coming in for Easter already.   

Now is the best time to start getting your caravan or motorhome ready for the new season to make sure you are ready to hit the road when the opportunity arises.  There are a number of routine checks you can undertake yourself, checking over the interior and giving it  good clean is a good start, making sure there is no sign of damp ingress over the winter and checking for mould growth on any internal surfaces or soft furnishings.  Ensuring that your water system has been flushed through with an appropriate steriliser to get rid of any bacteria which may have taken hold over the winter is very important and should be done before refilling.   It is likely that your leisure battery will need a charge if your vehicle has been sat unused all winter.  You should also check all the lights and lightbulbs are working, both inside and outside and replace those which aren’t.  A thorough wash and wax of the exterior to get rid of any green from the damp winter months will not only make your vehicle look better, you will be protecting the paintwork too.   

If all that seems like very hard work,  this is the perfect time to consider booking your caravan or motorhome in for a clean and service before things get too busy. Mick, our resident expert in our on-site workshop, will undertake a thorough service of your vehicle in accordance with the rigorous standards applied by the ApprovedWorkshop Scheme (of which we are a member) and give it a good clean and wax as well.   We can undertake a motorhome habitation check and also offer a damp check and repair service.  Replacement parts and a wide range of consumables and accessories for all your touring needs are available from our onsite shop.
