Damp ingress check

My caravan is serviced in November, it’s purchase anniversary. The damp check, part of the service, though usually fine, can be a bit suspect at that time of year. So, my mobile service guy does another one in the summer.
So today, everything less than 15%, the “don’t worry” level.
The caravan is nearly 11 years old now.
And, as a service customer, it’s foc.
Happy days.

Nice one Kerry.

Our 'van is a 2005. The only damp problem we have ever encountered with it was from the toilet area. After we bought it, I had a look at the service details from purchase and there was an entry advising 15% in the toilet area. I knew it was under warranty but as a keen DIY-er I wanted to sort it myself. I found evidence of a small leak from the toilet cassette door sealing, and removed the toilet unit and sorted it out with completely new sealing. Also I completely dismantled the toilet and found several shortcomings along the way with the toilet maker, eg lack of grease in the pivot moving parts etc. Once sorted, the whole area has remained bone dry since.
