Spring-check for caravan and camper

DCHV, service, vehicle maintenance

The late Easter festival this year leaves the caravaning fans seemingly a few weeks time with the preparations for the new season. But the German Caravaning Handels-Verband DCHV advises that if you want to make a date for the Spring-Check at the caravaning specialist in time before the start of the caravaning season 2017, you must hurry.

At the courts of the caravaning specialist dealers, there is currently high activity. In addition to the seasonal inspections, numerous deliveries of new vehicles in the calendar of the dealers are available in March and April.

The Easter holidays are traditionally also the annual start of the caravaning season. Before caravans and mobile home owners can start their first journey of the year, however, some work is still on the schedule at the rolling holiday homes.

Caravans and Reisemobile are aired, washed, washed and cleaned after the winter sleep. The caravaning enthusiast can do a lot of self-care. However, the technical systems of a caravan or mobile home belong to the hands of a professional.

“Particularly the examination of the systems relevant to road traffic and the technical infrastructure of the residential area for gas, water and electricity belong in the hands of trained specialists for caravans and motorhomes,” emphasizes Oliver Waidelich, Managing Director of the German Caravaning Handelsverband DCHV.

In addition to brakes, tires and lighting systems for motorhomes, this also includes the oil and cooling water level of the engine. In the living area of ​​the recreational vehicles are the water supply, the 12 volt and 230 volt power supply, the gas system as well as stove and refrigerator, which require the maintenance by skilled workers.

Smaller repairs, retrofitting of accessories and upcoming routine tests such as TÜV or gas testing can be done by the caravaning specialist at the same time.
