It is recommended by the National Caravan Council and under the Approved Workshop Scheme, that caravans or motorhomes over three years old have an electrical Periodic Inspection Report (PIR).

 

What is a periodic inspection?

A Periodic Inspection is an inspection as to the condition of an existing electrical installation. A periodic inspection from Caravanalia will:

  • reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment that may be overloaded

  • find any potential electric shock risks and fire hazards in your electrical installation

  • identify any defective DIY electrical work

  • highlight any lack of earthing or bonding.

  • Test RCD performance

  • Insulation resistance of wiring.

Why is a periodic inspection needed?

Every electrical installation deteriorates with use and age and due to movement of a caravan or motorhome, it is therefore recommended that a periodic inspection and testing is carried out at least every 3 years to ensure your caravan or motorhomes electrics are in top condition.
