Repairer warns of winter hazards

With more of you using your motorhome all year round, Derby-based Peak Leisure Vehicles is advising owners to make sure their vehicle is properly checked and prepared for the colder weather.

For example, fitting external blinds will reduce the amount of condensation in your motorhome; snow chains might be needed in certain areas; and a grip mat will solve any traction problems after pitching up. These are just some pointers given by Claire and Steve Parsons, owners of Peak Leisure Vehicles.

“Although motorhomes are now built to withstand winter weather, it is still advisable to give vehicles a full check up and make sure you are properly prepared,” says Claire. “At Peak Leisure Vehicles, we can provide customers with a check list and some pointers for safe winter travel.

"We always advise that you should check the battery, oil levels, gas and water systems, along with other features. For customers not confident in carrying out a mini-service themselves, we can do this for them to ensure everything is working properly and give them piece of mind.”

Peak Leisure Vehicles can carry out your motorhome system check up for £45.

To book your vehicle in for a thorough winter check, contact Peak Leisure Vehicles on 01332-824782.
