  1. Vehicle control

If the vehicle comes out of winter break after spending several months in a barn, we recommend checking it in accordance with good practice. Here are the points that it is important to check on a caravan:

  • Roof windows and skylights (damage)
  • Humidity on board the vehicle
  • Operation of the inertia braking device
  • Check tire pressure
  • Check the condition of the tires (cracks, damage, flattening and date)
  • Renew the highway sticker
  • Check the operation of the stabilizer coupling/coupling
  • Check the correct operation of the stove, refrigerator, heating, and toilets
  • Control interior and exterior lighting
  • Check the gas control due date
  • State of the freshwater tank

Here are the points that it is important to check on a motorhome:

  • Roof windows and skylights (damage)
  • Humidity on board the vehicle
  • Check tire pressure
  • Check the condition of the tires (cracks, damage, flattening and date)
  • Control interior and exterior lighting
  • Renew the sticker
  • Check the correct operation of the stove, refrigerator, heating, and toilets
  • Check the level of oil and washer fluid

It is important that the vehicle is in good working order and that all functions can be used without restrictions. In the event of damage, we advise you to make an appointment as soon as possible with a specialized workshop. Experience has shown that caravan maintenance workshops are often stormed in the spring and that waiting times are significant. There is nothing more annoying than having to go to a mechanic a few days before going on a trip.

  1. Control of camping accessories

In addition to the vehicles, it is also necessary to check the proper functioning of the accessories and examine any faults. We recommend checking the following:

  • Awning (including stakes, sardines, and turnbuckles)
  • Check and replace toilets (including additives) if necessary
  • Renew the additives for the freshwater tank if necessary
  • Renew the Camping Guide/discount cards
  • Check the condition of the dishes/kitchen utensils
  • Check the validity of the gas grill, the hose and the pressure regulator (usable up to 10 years after the production date)

So that everything is ready when the time comes, you must restock camping accessories early enough.
