What's Checked?

Water & Plumbing 

All water and plumbing systems are checked for leaks. A more thorough examination may be performed if there is any reason to believe plumbing systems are damaged. A technician will inspect all water taps and wastewater discharges. They will inspect the toilet and seal and, if installed, the wet heating system.

Electrical Systems

Electrical systems and components are inspected during a habitation check. The check includes looking at all internal and external lights along with their sockets. Technicians also check circuit breakers and all electrical appliances, such as refrigerators.

Gas Systems 

Just like water and electrics must be checked, so must a motorhome's gas systems. Technicians thoroughly inspect gas systems in order to identify any leaks. They also inspect ventilation, safety features built into the system, and all appliances that run on gas. This includes a gas-fuelled water heater.


Ventilation is also examined to make sure it is working properly. Poor ventilation can result in dampness trapped inside the motorhome. Any such dampness would need to be addressed as quickly as possible.

Fire & C02 Detectors

A habitation check includes testing fire and CO detectors to make sure they are in good working order. If a motorhome is equipped with fire extinguishers, these will be examined as well. An expired extinguisher would need to be recharged or replaced.

Damp Report 

A damp check is included with every habitation check. This procedure is intended to reveal any dampness inside a motorhome before it causes too much damage. Technicians expect to find at least some moisture, but readings that seem excessively high could indicate that water is getting into the unit through windows, doors, or vents.
