mixer valves in the showers have been drained correctly in accordance
with the instructions.
6) Flush the toilet(s).
7) Once the water has drained close all drain off outlets and

air to all parts of the caravan. This helps to eliminate pockets
of warm / cold air that could act as natural dehumidifiers and
17) Finally secure all exterior doors.
18) If you visit your caravan during the winter period, it is
advisable not to warm the caravan up using the gas fire or to
boil a kettle. This will produce warm moisture laden air which
may condense when the caravan cools and could lead to mould problems
on fabrics and wall boards.
Preparing your holiday home at
the start of the season.
1) Check all locks on doors and windows to ensure that they are
functioning correctly, particularly if they are on designated
escape routes. Lubricate all door looks in accordance with instructions
in the owner’s handbook. (It is recommended that lock cylinders
be lubricated every 6 months.)
2) Check all smoke, carbon monoxide alarms and batteries to ensure
that they are operational.
3) Externally check that all caravan supports are in place and
that anchoring chains are secure.
4) Before turning on the water supply reconnect all exterior pipes,
drain off cocks and the water heater drain off plug. Close all
taps and turn on the water slowly and check externally and internally
for leaks until the pipe work is filled and pressurised.
5) Check the gas appliances visually and look for any discolouration
of the flames or uneven heating. Your owner’s handbook will
strongly recommend an annual inspection by a CORGI registered
engineer to service your gas appliances and ensure their continued

of detergent and water. Do not use polishes, abrasive or solvent
based cleaners as some of these may affect the finish.
