    I had a MH service check a few weeks ago, just getting ready for Chester, found that they had left heating on gas and fridge on gas, and cylinder open!! We have just added the price of a 13kg Calor cylinder to the cost of the service

    I guess I could / should have checked myself, but am I right to feel robbed?

    Yep! I'd really feel cheesed off at that. We had Mark at CLS do our hab check and really liked him and what he did. :BigGrin:

    Not really, you should have checked, but at least you know that it was checked at the service!

    I do generally blame myself for not checking, but do think things should be left as found , maybe a warning that they have had to turn things on and I might like to make sure they are all back off would cover it

    If it includes VAT and it is a reputable workshop, yes as it is quite time consuming done properly

    SERVICE CHARGES
    Motorhome Habitation service £155.00 + vat​

    If you go on a Funster rally and Mark (CLS) is there, book him to do it. He's a lot cheaper than that !
