DIY or Find a Fitter?
A lot here depends on how confident you are you can do the job. Most jobs are relatively simple to do, just make sure you use the following guidelines:
- Know what you are doing- Try to write or find a list that covers everything you need to do before you begin. Then, read it through. This way, you’ll get a good idea whether you can tackle this job yourself.
- Have the right and correct equipment- You don’t want to get half way through a job only to find out there is a part missing.
Although some things will be better left to the professionals. Things like; sealing leaks and cracks using Sikaflex or replacing equipment like faucets are relatively simple to do by yourself. Here is a few of our top 6 common campervan problems and DIY repairs jobs.
Can I avoid things breaking?
Short answer is, probably not. Unfortunately, it is hard to avoid general wear and tear completely. However, there are several ways to minimise the risk of needing spare parts. They include:
- Have a working knowledge of your motorhome facilities i.e. heating & cooling system, shower & toilet etc
- Daily checks & maintenance i.e. empty the toilet or drain the tanks!
- Remember to store away & close everything before you move off (Windows, vents, ladders, loose cups, glasses etc). Check out our storage organisers for a good way to store items.
- Winterisation/Winter Planning- More on that in the next section
