Habitation Service

Habitation Service

Many people have never encountered the term "Motorhome Habitation Service" before, also called a Habitation test.

You can think of a habitation service as being a motorhomes (or caravans) equivalent to an MOT for the aspects of your motorhome that are used for living such as LPG / Water / Electricity. These items can be a safety issue if not checked periodically and also can usually be part of a warranty check off list which has a habitation service stipulated to be tested annually to ensure warranty conditions are met.

The actual service isn't mandatory in a legal fashion (at the moment) but it would be foolhardy to drive around in a vehicle that doesn't have an annual habitation service due to the number of issues that could arise unchecked if not inspected.

Electrical safety issues could arise which could prove dangerous, LPG leaks could occur that could prove dangerous (if not fatal), water leaks / ingress could happen that could prove very expensive. So you can see it is worth peace mind if nothing else to pay out annually for a check to detect / prevent any issues arising.

A common thought process is that "I don't use my motorhome / caravan very often so it's not worth paying for the test", this isn't the case as the lack of use itself can cause inherent issues.
