All caravans comply with BS EN 721.
The ventilation points on your caravan are fixed points of ventilation which are required by the European Standards.
All caravans have ventilation at high level and low level which has been calculated to suit the individual needs of your caravan.
High level ventilation is achieved by means of the roof lights and washroom roof ventilators. The low level ventilators are positioned underneath the oven housing.
Under no circumstances must these vents be blocked or obstructed in any manner as this could lead to insufficient fresh air.
In this case the confined atmosphere becomes depleted of oxygen which could lead to dangerous levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) build up leading to risk of asphyxiation.
The risks of carbon monoxide (CO) build up, which is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas, will also be reduced with ventilation.
Carbon monoxide is produced from incomplete combustion and should the CO detector be activated the cause of the incomplete combustion must be investigated prior to reusing the appliance in question.
It is advised that fixed ventilation points are checked and cleaned (if necessary) on a regular basis using a small brush and a domestic vacuum cleaner.
Additional night time ventilation is obtained by releasing the window catches and placing them in the second groove.
Note: the windows are not sealed from rain in this position.
The ventilation levels are calculated to suit each models requirements and therefore no modifications should be made which may result in reduced ventilation levels.
Please note that the fitment of an air-conditioning unit in place of an existing skylight will reduce the high level ventilation within your caravan.
Please contact your dealer to enquire if there is sufficient excess high level ventilation in your caravan to allow fitment of an air-conditioning unit.
WARNING: Do not obstruct ventilation.
