Preparing Your Caravan For Your Next Trip To Caravan Parks In Wales

The weather is just about right once again to take your caravan out of its hibernation so that you can use it for your next getaway. The caravan parks in wales are best when the sun is shining and the flowers bloom, and this is probably the best time for you to actually prepare for a trip.

With your caravan being stuck in the garage or in your driveway for a long time, it might be best to prepare it for your next adventure before you actually go use it. Here are some tips you can keep in mind in order to prepare your caravan for your trip to caravan parks in Wales.

  • Get it serviced. When you decide to use your caravan, the first thing that you must do is get it serviced. It can be just once every year, and you need to book in advance because the servicing of motor homes usually book up quite quickly. Ensure that the one that will be working on the gas system of your caravan is registered with Gas Safe.
  • Get the drinking water system fixed. It may or may not have any issues, but you should never take your drinking water system for granted. Just do the following.
  • If you have left your drain valves open during the winter season, close them now.
  • Turn on your water pump and water heater.
  • Check to see if all the taps in your caravan are turned off and are placed either over the shower or sink.
  • Add cleaning tablet or fluid to the drinking water tank. You can also add Aquaroll to the tap water.
  • Do basic DIY spot checks on your caravan. If you are planning a trip to caravan parks in Wales or in any other part of the country, you should first check your caravan to make sure that there is nothing wrong with it. Things you should check include the following:
  • Make sure that the tires are still good to go and are free from any bulges, cuts, or scratches. The tread depth should also be 2mm at the minimum. You should also ensure that they are properly inflated.
  • The gas tank should also be full, and the rubber hoses should be at an acceptable quality, with no chaffed, spilt, or perished parts.
  • Test the handbrake to see if it can hold the caravan on a slope.
  • Test the lighting system of the whole caravan. You left it for quite some time unused, maybe one of the bulbs need to be replaced.
  • Check if the leisure batter accepts and holds charge.
  • Your fire extinguisher should be up to date and correctly pressurized. If you do not have one, purchase a fire extinguisher, and add a fire blankets well for fires caused by cooking fat.
  • Now is also the time to spring clean your caravan. Make sure that you give it a good washing both in and out so that it is ready for your next road trip. Not only will it help in keeping out germs, dirt, and grime from your caravan, but it will also give you the opportunity to check for any leakage or damage in your caravan before it becomes a big problem.
