Camping on site using a 230V electricity supply within caravans, motorhomes requires even more care than in the home. Because your unit is mobile there is a greater likelihood of things going wrong with an electrical installation than with the fixed installation within your house. It is therefore important you make sure your cables and equipment are maintained in good condition by simple checks every time you use it, by regular inspections by a qualified technician and also by using it in a sensible way. Our team at The Happy Camper Store can help you with every step of your electrical needs on your mobile home.

It is good practice to check the operation of the safety RCD device before turning on your appliances by switching on the RCD and pressing the test button. If it fails to operate the system will need to be checked by a suitably qualified person.

We are pleased to announce, on top of our industry sector training qualifications, we are qualified to 16th edition electrical testing and inspection level.

Your caravan, camper or motorhome will have an electrical installation certificate which should have been issued from the factory when it was built. This certification expires after three years. The industry is now striving to ensure these electrical certificates are renewed accordingly. Insurance companies are also requiring certificate renewal in the same way that it is a requirement for an annual service, particularly if you are insured on a new for old policy. We can offer periodic inspection reports that satisfy the criteria required by insurance companies.
