Mobile Home Gas Safety Inspection Tips

admin 0

Owning a mobile home can be fun, going out on weekends with the family and spending long periods in the summer, but how safe is your mobile home?

Your mobile home is like an extension to your main home and as such needs an annual gas safety check to make sure you and your family are safe.

So what is a mobile home gas safety inspection?

Just like at home, all gas appliances should be inspected and repaired.

But why do we only use the mobile about 10 weeks a year?

It is probably more important to have a gas safety inspection done on a mobile home than on your main home because it is not occupied for most of the year, while the home is.

So what to check?

First of all, we need to find a registered gas safe company that is registered to work with LPG, that can also perform a mobile home gas safety inspection.

You may already know someone who is registered for gas insurance, the engineer who reviews your main house, but may not be registered to work with LPG.

The best way to find an LPG engineer is to contact the secure gas registry, either through their website or by calling them, they will be able to put you in touch with someone who can work with LPG.

First we need to establish that there is no gas leak, we do this by performing a gas tightness test, this will show if there are any leaks.

The hoses connected to the gas cylinders that supply gas to your mobile phone can deteriorate over time and will need to be replaced.

All hoses that are connected to your mobile home are date stamped and as such should be checked and replaced as appropriate.


Most mobile homes have some form of heating installed, for older models it may be a gas fire and newer models a central heating boiler.

Whichever form of heating is installed, it should be checked to make sure it is safe to use.

The gas fire should be inspected, making sure the on-off switch works freely and is not difficult to turn.

One of the most important checks is to make sure that the flue is not blocked and is properly removing the products of combustion, that is, that no carbon monoxide enters the room.

Since mobile phones are only used for a short time during the year, things happen, like the smoke ducts coming out of the top of the mobile home get blocked.

They can be blocked by leaves from overhanging trees, even nesting birds, so it is vital that your mobile home gas safety inspection is carried out.


Just like your home, your boiler needs an annual service, this is to make sure everything is working as it should and to make sure it’s safe to use.

kitchen appliances

If your mobile device has an oven and gas hob, then these should also be checked, just to make sure they are in good working order and safe to use.

site rules

Wherever your home is located, you will find that all parks require this mobile home gas safety inspection to be performed once a year. They will also like to see the inspection certificate and make a copy for their files.

rent to friends

There may come a time when you rent your mobile home to friends to earn a little extra money, we all like to earn a little more.

But now you have to do another inspection, it’s called the owner’s gas safety inspection (CP12).

Even if you rent it for a day, you will need this landlord inspection check.


Conducting your mobile home gas safety inspection is all about the SAFETY side.

Most of the time, the mobile home is empty and, like all things that are not used, it can get stuck or break when you start using it again.

Always be happy and have fun on your mobile, but the most important thing is to be safe.
