Use our Travel Checklist to prepare your caravan and car for your journey. There are some things you must ALWAYS
check before your journey :
Tyre pressure is correct
Wheel bolts are correctly tightened
The gas is turned off at the cylinder
The on-board water tank is empty (if you have one)
The on-board toilet tank and flush tank are empty
All windows and roof vents are closed and locked
Caravan battery is set to your vehicle
The fridge power is set to 12v
Vehicle oil level
Vehicle brake fluid
Vehicle coolant level
Vehicle windscreen washer levels
The roadlights are working when you are hooked up to the caravan.
The breakaway cable is correctly connected.
Ensure the caravan jockey wheel is lifted and secured.
Remember to disengage your motor-mover if you have one.
Then remember to take off the handbrake !!
If you have anything you check before journeys which is not on our Travel Checklist, please let us know.
A good tip is to copy our above list and then laminate it - you can use the same list before every journey using a dry-wipe pen.
We hope our Checklist helps you - it is very easy to miss out one of the above jobs which could make your journey less safe or even damage your caravan.
