Kent we can offer servicing and
repairs to most sizes of motor homes. We have a 6 metre lift
facility so we can service and
MOT motorhomes with a wheel base of
up to 6m and up to 5.5 tonnes.
We are proud Motor home owners ourselves so we
understand the importance of quality service being carried out to
keep it in optimum condition for those long treks.
Whether it is a weekend
trip to the coast of a years tour of the Australian outback, there
are checks you can carry out yourself to avoid basic problems on
Before setting off
in your motorhome
Secure everything! - It
may sound obvious but make sure all loose articles are stowed away,
avoid putting heavy items in overhead cupboards. Load the motorhome
so that the heavier items are distributed evenly and placed as near
to the floor as possible e.g. in the lower cupboards. Make sure the
gas cylinders are turned off, secure and in the right position. Most
fridges have a lock, check that this is engaged.
If you are loading your
roof rack, again, try to spread the load evenly.
Check your tyre
pressures and that your wheel nuts are tightened. Don't forget to
retract your exterior step if you have one.
Towing a trailer
If you are towing a
trailer behind your motorhome, its manoeuvrability will be reduced
and it will take more effort to climb hills. The acceleration and
braking ability will be altered to be aware when needing to slow
down or negotiate a corner. Your motorhome will also consume more
fuel. Here are some useful tips for towing in your
motorhome.1) Just before going down a steep hill, change down in
gear to brake the engine. 2) Check the tyre pressures of the trailer
- the trailer manufacturer will have its own recommended tyre
pressures to adhere to. 3) Make sure the trailer lights and brakes
are working before you set off. 4) If possible, position the load
over the axles of the trailer to improve the stability, and again,
try to distribute it evenly.
