Humidity Test your caravan is a requirement of most caravan brands, if you buy a new or newer caravan. If you do not abide by moisture test supervision inspections at a dealer approved for your caravan brand, the density void your warranty. Each year, close to the date of purchase must have been made moisture test from an authorized dealer / workshop, and often must be done within +/- 1 month from the date of purchase.
It is relatively simple self-monitor his caravan after moisture, and the following image and text shows you how you should conduct målinger.Ved an overhaul becomes the caravan examined for moisture / body fatigue, the humidity is often measured cf.. picture below.
There measured at three different points:
* measuring point 1 at the center of a wall
* measuring point 2 present on a wall of a frame (wooden post between in- outer sheet)
* measuring point 3 found by a mounting plate. In addition, measurements are generally moisture and liquid water in the construction.
Below is max humidity must be at the respective measuring points:
* dry wall (middle of the) 6 %
* Dry wall by bucket (tæstolpe between in- outer sheet) 14 %
* By seatplate (around tagvindue / taglem) 19 %
* The moisture in the construct 20 %
* Liquid water in the construct 25 %
measuring point 1:
The humidity is measured and rear right- and left and rear, gaskassen, at the door, display boxes, on the side walls (middle of the).
The humidity should not exceed 6%. Values that are 15% or greater should be the cause of the leak and repair should be carried out.
measuring point 2:
The humidity measured at all windows, and moisture content may not exceed 14%. If you measure a humidity of more than 25% the reason should be found to leak and repair should be carried out.
measuring point 3:
The humidity is measured by the skylight / windows, chimney, antenna, front- and taillights, handle, service lemme incl. lem for wc and other penetrations, moisture value should not be more than 19%, you measure more than 19% the reason should be found to leak and repair should be carried out.
The humidity in the structure should not be more than 20%, by liquid water may be no more than 25% water in the construct – If you measure the humidity more than 19% and 25%, the reason should be found to leak and repair should be carried out.
Moisture measuring and where it can be purchased:You can purchase moisture meters more places, and in different priced. For example, selling Harald Nyborg a humidity gauge to about. kr. 80,- which measures the humidity between 7 – 35 % se • Link: Humidity Meter from Harald Nyborg (Best.nr. 2992)
A camper has tested the cheap from the Harald Nyborg, and here you see the result 🙂 : My caravan was run moisture measurement at a dealer, and when I got the caravan home tried myself with my own one moisture meter purchased from Harald Nyborg to 78,00 kr, and showed the same moisture as percent moisture from the test showed the caravan dealer – So you could find an inexpensive moisture meter can be used for moisture measurement of caravan.
Where you moisture in your caravan, and you in time have stopped the moisture can often settle for drying of construction, otherwise replacing parts m.v. for repairs.
