"Detecting and measuring moisture in vehicles"
Mr Gilles Munsch, Narbonne Accessoires/TP uses the Humitest Aquant moisture detector for leisure vehicle maintenance.
Testing moisture regularly"The biggest enemy of the camper-van is infiltration. Indeed, warranty contracts clearly state that a vehicle must be checked at least once a year by a qualified specialist. The Vilamobil brand, for example, insists on two water tightness tests a year, to make sure there is no leak", explains Gilles Munsch, Technical Director of Narbonne Accessoires. I have equipped our network of workshops with an instrument for detecting and measuring moisture in vehicles, which we use when carrying out regular and mandatory checks on leisure vehicles”, he continues.
Measuring moisture for a reliable diagnosis"Humitest Aquant also enables us to pinpoint any leakage when carrying out surveys. I initially bought Humitest Aquant to respond to this need. The hygrometer has the added advantage of not damaging the materials being tested. The test is conducted without having to pin on the body work of the vehicle. We have since resorted to using this instrument when installing accessories. Depending on the moist form detected, we can monitor an hard bearing inside a panel and install stronger fittings. At last, this tool enables us to pinpoint any leakage when carrying out our surveys, without having to dismantle the vehicle. And the diagnosis is reliable."
"You only need to use Humitest Aquant for a short while to get used to it. You read the results directly off the display, which also has an LCD progress bar going from red to green. It’s so user-friendly”, concludes Gilles Munsch.
Narbonne Accessoires offers accessories and equipment solutions for camper vans, caravans and mobile homes. To be able to offer a full range of options, the brand bought the TPL (Tout Pour le Loisir) brand name, which specialises in camper vans.
