How to Store Your Motorhome for Winter

Motorhomes are a great way to explore the outdoors, but it's important to take proper care of them, especially during the winter months. If you're not planning on using your motorhome during the winter, it's important to store it properly to prevent damage. 

Frost Damage Prevention 

The first step is to drain the water system to prevent frost damage. This includes draining the fresh water tank, gray water tank, black water tank, and water heater. You'll also need to open all of the drain taps, including the shower head and kitchen faucet. Once the water has been drained, leave the taps open to allow any remaining moisture to escape. 

General Winter Protection 

In addition to draining the water system, there are a few other things you can do to protect your motorhome during the winter. 

  • Remove all personal belongings and food items. 
  • Clean the inside and outside of the motorhome thoroughly. 
  • Leave the fridge and freezer slightly open to prevent mold growth. 
  • Lower any drop-down beds and move seat cushions away from the walls to improve air circulation. 
  • Leave a low-level background heat source on, such as an oil-filled radiator. 
  • If possible, trickle charge the engine and leisure batteries to maintain their performance. 

Where to Store Your Motorhome 

It's important to store your motorhome on a hard surface, such as concrete or asphalt. Avoid storing your motorhome on grass or soft soil, as this can cause it to sink and lose traction. It's also best to avoid storing your motorhome under trees, as this can expose it to tree sap and bird droppings. 

Motorhome Storage Options 

If you don't have a place to store your motorhome on your own property, there are a number of secure motorhome storage facilities available. These facilities typically offer a variety of features, such as perimeter fencing, CCTV, and alarm systems.

  • What features are important to you?

    Make a list of the features that are most important to you in a motorhome. This could include things like a bed size, kitchen appliances, and bathroom facilities.

  • What is your budget?

Top Tips for Motorhome Camping

Chausson 660 Titanium Ultimate New Motorhome

Motorhome camping is a great way to explore new places and enjoy the outdoors. But it's important to be prepared before you go. Here are 10 tips for motorhome camping:

  1. Choose the right campsite. When choosing a campsite, consider the size of your motorhome, the amenities you need, and the activities you want to do. Some campsites are designed specifically for motorhomes, while others are more general.
  2. Plan your route. Before you set off on your trip, plan your route and make reservations at campsites along the way. This will help to ensure that you have a place to stay each night.
  3. Pack carefully. Motorhomes have limited storage space, so it's important to pack carefully. Only bring the essentials, and consider using packing cubes to help organize your belongings.
  4. Set up your motorhome carefully. Once you arrive at your campsite, take some time to set up your motorhome carefully. Make sure that it is level and secure, and that you have access to all of the amenities you need.
  5. Conserve water and electricity. Motorhomes have limited water and electricity supplies, so it's important to conserve them. Take shorter showers, turn off lights when you're not using them, and unplug appliances when they're not in use.
  6. Be prepared for anything. Mother Nature can be unpredictable, so it's important to be prepared for anything when you're motorhome camping. Pack a first-aid kit, emergency supplies, and a plan for what to do in case of bad weather or other emergencies.
  7. Be respectful of your surroundings. Motorhome camping is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, but it's important to be respectful of your surroundings. Leave no trace and be mindful of the noise you make.
  8. Take advantage of the storage space. Chausson motorhomes are known for their efficient use of space. Make sure to take advantage of all the storage compartments available. You can use them to store everything from food and clothes to camping gear and sporting equipment.
  9. Relax in the comfort of your own home. Chausson motorhomes are designed to be comfortable and luxurious. So relax and enjoy your time on the road.
  10. Have fun! Motorhome camping is a great way to relax and enjoy time with your family and friends. So make the most of it and have fun!

With a little planning and preparation, you can have a great time motorhome camping in your Chausson motorhome.

What do I need to drive in France

Chausson 640 driving in france

Planning a road trip in France? New rules apply for Low emission zones!

Low emission zones are now in force across more parts of France than ever before, and drivers can face fines of up to £154 if they don't plan ahead.

Here's what you need to know if you're planning on driving in France this summer:

  • You need to display a windscreen emissions sticker in at least 14 areas across the country. These stickers are color-coded based on your vehicle's emissions, with green "0" stickers being the cleanest and purple "5" stickers being the most polluting. You can order your sticker from the French government website for £4.
  • Fines for not displaying a sticker start at £58 and can rise to £154 if not paid within 45 days. From next year, fines will increase to up to £640.
  • Some areas of France restrict vehicle movements based on their sticker. For example, in Paris, only cars with "0", "1", or "2" stickers are allowed to drive on certain roads at certain times.
  • Other European countries, such as Spain and Switzerland, also have increasingly strict emissions regulations. If you're planning on driving to multiple countries, you may need to purchase multiple emissions stickers.

To avoid fines and hassle, it's important to plan ahead and make sure you have the correct emissions sticker for the areas you'll be driving in. You can find more information on the French government website.

Here are some additional tips for driving in France this summer:

  • Make sure your car is in good condition and has a valid MOT certificate.
  • Fill up your tank before you cross the border, as fuel prices in France are higher than in the UK.
  • Be aware of the speed limits, which are lower in France than in the UK.
  • Obey the traffic laws and signs.
  • Be prepared for traffic jams, especially in major cities.
  • If you're planning on parking in a city, make sure you pay for parking in advance.
  • Relax and enjoy your trip!

Chausson 640 Welcome Handover

Couple standing next to a motorhome

Derek and Julie from West Hougham are pictured taking delivery of their Chausson 640 Welcome used motorhome.

They had decided to opt for a more compact vehicle that they can park on their drive for when they spot the weather is going to be decent and can just get up and go on a weekend adventure. They already had a motorhome so they decided to trade it with us and use it against the cost of the new motorhome. 

They were impressed that even though the Chausson 640 is under 7 meters in length, the inside feels spacious and has 4 seat belts and beds for sleeping 4. They needed to have a 4-berth motorhome to provide the extra sleeping space for when they take their granddaughter away with them on their road trips. 

John, a senior technician here at our modern workshop completed the handover process for Derek and Julie. 

John and Shane would like to thank these guys for their valued order and wish them many miles of happy motorhoming! …

What to pack for a Motorhome Trip

 Friends sat outside of a motorhome

Spring is here so its officially road trip time! 

We have put together a list of a few of the items you might want to pack on a motorhome adventure. 

Be sure to pack everything you need to make your trip comfortable and enjoyable.

Maps and GPS. 

It's essential to have a reliable navigation system to help you plan your route and find your way around unfamiliar places.

Did you know you have the option to download Google Maps for use offline for areas with poor signal or if you do not have a data plan with your mobile phone contract? Note that offline maps won’t show live traffic data. 

To download a map for offline use in Google maps, go to Google Maps on your smart device, then click your Profile icon (top right), scroll down to Offline maps, choose the area you will need to use offline, then click download. 

Food and water

You'll want to have plenty of food and water on hand, especially if you're traveling in remote areas. 

Kitchen supplies

Make sure to bring the necessary utensils, pots, pans, dishes, and cutlery for cooking and dining.


Clothing suitable for the climate: It's important to pack clothing suitable for the climate you'll be traveling in, including warm layers for colder weather and comfortable clothing for warmer temperatures.


Don't forget to pack toiletries, including toothpaste, soap, shampoo, and other personal hygiene items.

First-aid kit

It's important to have a well-stocked first aid kit that includes items such as bandages, antiseptic, painkillers, and any prescription medication you may need. Also make sure you have insect repellent, sunscreen and aftersun.


Having a source of light is critical, especially if you plan on camping in remote areas or arriving at your destination after dark.


You'll need batteries for your flashlight, GPS, and other electronics.


Capture memories and take pictures of your adventures along the way. Consider bringing a camera or using your smartphone to take pictures and videos of your trip.

Leveling ramps 

Needed for when you are on campsites or wild camping to keep your motorhome level.

Camping chairs and table

Having outdoor furniture will provide you with a comfortable place to sit and relax outside of the motorhome.

Entertainment options

Bring books, board games, or any other entertainment options you enjoy to keep you entertained during downtime.

Water hose

Having a hose is important to replenish the water tanks in your motorhome.

Towing eye

At this time of the year the ground can be water logged and if you are not staying on a hard surface there is a chance that your motorhome could get stuck if it sinks in to soft mud.

If a tow is required, the Fiat and Ford based motorhomes have a towing eye provided, and a location point in the front bumper. How to locate and use the towing eye - How It Works | Ford Ireland - YouTube

Bike electric scooter for provisions 

Ideal to quickly go off and pick up extras without having to move your motorhome.

Chausson S514 Handover

Customers stood next to new motorhome

Yvonne and Richard from Cambridge are pictured taking delivery some weeks ago of the very first Chausson SPORT-LINE S 514 model that TC Motorhomes have supplied.

They visited the NEC Motorhome Show last October and spoke to Shane and decided that the all new Chausson S514 Sport-Line would be perfect for their needs. Having previously owned a VW Campervan, these guys know the benefits of a compact motorhome, but wanted a few more creature comforts than the VW afforded them.

Just 6 metres long, 2 metres wide, with a fixed `Butterfly Bed` at the back over a large garage below, an adequate kitchen and a pleasant washroom with shower and WC, and a powerful Ford 170 BHP engine with a smooth 6 x speed Automatic Transmission as standard, What`s not to like?

Shane Catterick bumped into Yvonne and Richard at the NEC Motorhome show again in this February, and was delighted to learn that these guys love their new motorhome, and are planning to live in it whilst they move house.

Shane and the team at TC Motorhomes in Herne Bay Kent would like to thank Yvonne and Richard for their valued business, and to wish them well in their renewed Motorhoming adventure.

Preparing your motorhome for spring

For some of you who haven't used your motorhome over the winter months, and with spring coming you might be thinking about getting it ready and checked over for your first road trip this year. 

It is important to do this with plenty of time before your trip, in case there are any issues that you need to address.

It is recommended to keep a checklist, and perform a thorough inspection before any trip to help ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

The list below has 12 items you should check before going on a road trip:
  • Driving License, insurance and MOT documents are up to date
  • Tyres: Check tyre pressures and condition
  • Engine: Check the oil and fluid levels
  • Brakes and lights
  • Fuel and propane levels
  • Electrical and plumbing systems
  • Batteries condition, and if you have a solar panel, is it clean
  • Interior and exterior condition
  • First aid kit and emergency supplies
  • Water and waste tanks
  • Navigation and entertainment systems
  • A valid Emergency road-side recovery package
Below is a video that Shane Catterick of TC Motorhomes put together for a Chausson 640 walk through, although specifically a 640 walk around, the information will help all motorhome owners refresh with the features they may have in their vehicle and how to check them over. Motorhome specifications do vary.

If you would like to consider a more in-depth check, then you might want to consider booking your motorhome in for a full Habitation check, and / or a mechanical service here at our workshop in Herne Bay.  Cam Belt replacements (typically Fiat Ducato) can also be replaced at TC`s

If you would like to know more then please call: 01227 289111.

We Sold Our Chausson To TC Motorhomes

We sold our motorhome text

We Sold Our Chausson To TC Motorhomes, Who Made The Process So Easy .

Selling our motorhome to TC Motorhomes was stress free, quick and simple.

We bought our motorhome from them 5 years ago and were impressed with the service they gave at the time.

So when we decided to sell, our first instinct was to email them to see if they would be interested in buying it back. 

We had a phone call the next day, offering a very good price and they even offered to come and collect it from us to save us a round trip of over 400miles to return it to them. The MOT had lapsed and they also sorted that out for us.

We didn’t even bother to make enquires elsewhere.

Three days later the motorhome was picked up and the money went straight into our account.

The whole process was seamless from start to finish, and took away the worry of trying to sell the motorhome privately.

We thoroughly recommend TC Motorhomes for all aspects of the service they offer.

Jaspers Travels

Just before Christmas we sold a Chausson 640 Used Motorhome to a lovely lady called Karen. 

Karen and Jasper (her cat) have already travelled over 1000 miles just over the xmas hoildays, once she got in to her New Motorhome she just kept going! 

In the near future the pair are planning on a roadtrip to France, the only plan at this point is to get there, Karen has no real destination in mind and is just going to drive. 

Above you can see a photo of Jasper just chilling while Karen popped in to Pets at Home to get some provisions. 

Karen wrote to us just after Christmas updating us and letting us know how happy she is. 

She wrote, 

"I am in love 😍.  When I am out in the moho, I don't want to come home....

Drives like a dream, everything about her is perfect and suits me fantastically. Cat loves it too. 

Since I collected her, she has done York and parts of the Peak District over Xmas. 

Then down the coast from Folkestone through Brighton, Portsmouth, into the New Forest and down to Bournemouth before turning for home, over New Year. 

I wild camped using park4nite and it was amazing and so easy, had everything I needed. 

Have somehow managed to clock up 1000 miles already on my travels...."

The above photo prompted some more questions! Apparently Jasper is just like a dog and doesn't go far from Karen at any time, he wears a tracker when he is out of the motorhome. When Karen visited the New Forest Jasper took himself out for a quick look about the local area and returned back for breakfast and a nap. 

We look forward to hearing more from Karen and seeing some more of Jasper's adventures. 

Karen left us a review on Google you can read it here: TC Motorhomes Review by Karen on Google.

Motorhome Service

The importance of servicing your Motorhome by a professional, competent dealership

It's that time of year where the motorhoming community is looking to book their spring road trips. For those who have have had their motorhome parked up on their drive or have had it in storage over the winter months now is the time to consider a service / habbitation check for peace of mind.
Here at TC Motorhomes we have a modern NCC Approved work shop and our skilled technicians have years of combined experience.

Mechanical Servicing

Mechanical servicing is carried out on the chassis and engine of your motorhome and depending on mileage, should be carried out at least every two years, or at 10k mileage intervals if sooner.

At TC Motorhomes we also recommend that an oil and filter change is carried out in the years between full servicing and in line with vehicle manufacturers recommendations, due to the relatively low number of miles covered.

Our Used Motorhome Sales Service and Inspection is comprehensive and includes Oil, Air, Fuel and Pollen filters being replaced, Cam Belt replacement if applicable, engine oil replaced, wheels removed for brake, brake pipe and wheel bearing inspection, and exhaust, suspension, tyres and underside appraisal too. A thorough road-test of each vehicle including checking the controls and switches, that the Air-Conditioning and Cruise-Control is working etc is completed ensuring that no stone is left un-turned, including a new MOT Inspection, (IF APPLICABLE) being carried out on-site.

Habitation Servicing

Habitation servicing at TC Motorhomes is carried out in accordance with the NCC (National Caravan Council) Approved Workshop Scheme, and should be carried out annually on the 'home' element of your Motorhome.

It is designed to check that the gas, electric, water systems and appliances in your Motorhome are running safely and smoothly and in the unlikely event of damp entering your motorhome it is detected and dealt with as soon as possible.

Every effort is made to establish whether any issues are `developing` that are easier dealt with in their infancy, than if left unchecked.

Some Camp-Sites may wish to inspect your most recent habitation inspection to determine that your vehicle has passed all of the stringent safety checks.

If you would like to book your Motorhome in for a service or habbitation check then please contact us on 01227 289111 or visit our contact page for information on opening times or to send us a message via the website: Book a Motorhome Service.
