Motorhome Servicing

We want to ensure every one of our customers has the best experience in their motorhome, which is why we offer comprehensive servicing including washing and PIR electrical checks. This PIR test is available for anyone who owns a motorhome over three years old, and is recommended by the National Caravan Council Approved Workshop Scheme and the Electrical Safety Council.

PIR Electrical Check

Here are some of our FAQs about PIR Tests:

What is a periodic inspection?

A periodic inspection is an inspection on the condition of existing electrical installations to identify any deficiencies against the national safety standard for electrical installations.

An inspection will:

  • Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment is overloaded.
  • Find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards in your electrical installation.
  • Identify and DIY electrical work.
  • Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding and adequacy.

Why is an inspection necessary?

Every electrical installation will deteriorate over time with use and age. Therefore, the National Caravan Council recommend these tests to be carried out every 3 years. This is necessary to ensure that the installation is in a safe and serviceable condition.

What happens during a periodic inspection?

We will assess:

  • All plugs and sockets which are checked for polarity (including hook up cable).
  • Continuity of protective conductors (including hook up cable).
  • Earthing and bonding (from inlet to main earthing terminal to chassis and gas pipes).
  • Insulation resistance test to 500v DC.
  • RCD trip testing, 1/2 trip, full trip and 5 times trip.
  • Suitability of switchgear.
  • Safety of electrical connections (to make child-friendly by enclosing connections in coffin boxes).
  • The extent of any wear and tear, damage or other deterioration.

After your test is completed, there is a coded system which determines the urgency of the test results:
