Outdoor Bits is an NCC Approved Workshop and can therefore carry out Habitation Tests on most new vans still under warranty usually at a lower price than a main dealer.
Motorhomes are not legally required to have the habitation area of the vehicle checked however some manufacturers now insist on habitation servicing to maintain warranties as well as many as owners generally accepting that motorhomes are complex and having them checked over helps maintain peace of mind.
In a motorhome you have the same test but a motorhome is further complicated due to its leisure facilities such as Gas / Water / Electricity which go untested during an MOT.
Considering you are driving around a vehicle which contains plenty of explosive potential and being a sizeable investment surely we should be testing them in a mandatory fashion.
At Outdoorbits we offer habitation service testing for all Motorhomes and Caravans alike.
Our Habitation Service follows industry guidelines and checks for damp ingress, electrical safety, gas safety and a thorough check of other aspects of the leisure side of your motorhome.
Annual habitation servicing is recommended by all Manufacturers of motorhomes / caravans and indeed is usually a requirement for warranty.
We follow the National Caravan Council recommended Habitation Service as well as specific manufacturer guidelines when conducting the habitation service.
A Typical motorhome habitation service takes approximately 3-4 hours and thoroughly checks the leisure aspects of your motorhome.
The LPG, water and electrical systems are all tested using specialist professional equipment.
RCD Trip timing tests where we use a specialised piece of equipment to forceable trip the RCD and see how long it takes to respond for a given issue. The RCD is a live saving piece of equipment so this test is very pertinent.
A full Damp test is carried out as part of the habitation check using two protimeter damp meters (one invasive with prongs and the other none invasive), measurements are taken at key points around your vehicle and noted down on a vehicle schematic. You take a copy of this report with you on completion and it is extremely useful as it can show areas of concern as you have readings you can see if figures start to rise in a particular area on your return the following year.
All locks are inspected & tested. Blinds, windows, roof lights are opened, checked and adjusted where necessary.
We perform fire safety and security checks. Damp tests on bodywork are checked during your the habitation service.
You Will receive a three page in depth report including damp inspection report to take away. You will also receive printouts for your gas appliances showing Carbon monoxide readings taken all providing peace of mind.
A copy of our Annual Habitation Service schedule can be provided on request.
We can also arrange MOT and Servicing of your vehicle whilst it is in our workshop. Contact us for more information and pricing.
Motorhome and Caravan owners alike baulk at buying a used vehicle due to the concerns for damp.
Damp in a motorhome seriously reduces the value of the vehicle and if detected needs to be investigated and rectified without delay. Damp testing can be carried out using inexpensive equipment but for a thorough damp test more accurate (and inherently more expensive equipment is desirable) to prevent false alerts.
