Much equipment installed in modern motor homes and caravans contains very advanced electronic and other control systems, and in order to offer a professional and efficient repair service to their owners, technicians today must possess a diverse set of core skills in areas including, Refrigeration, Air conditioning, Air/ Space Heating systems and controls, Water Boiler systems and control, Gas Systems and electrical/ electronic systems and, these skills must in turn be backed up with the necessary equipment needed to carry out systems analysis, testing and repair.
Over the years, both Gerry and Pat have travelled widely throughout Europe to attend manufacturer and third party courses dealing with these and other areas and have invested heavily in providing the most up to date test equipment and facilities for their business.
