This website was created by Allan Evans to try and provide technical guidance on all aspects of Motorhome/Caravan electronics. Allan passed away at 18:05 on 11th of August 2019 after losing his battle against Colon Cancer. A sad loss. He will be remember by many for his expert professionalism. 

Our thoughts are with his wife Natalie and two young children, Adam (8) and Sophie(7). Alan set up a University/scholarship fund to help his children get through University when the time comes.

Martin Bushnell the Senior Engineer, has taken over control of the firm and will continue to service established costumers as well as new enquiries.




              Motorhome and Caravan Charger repairs



Please use the Contact Us page to request a quote or to send a broken unit. Please do not send anything without first contacting us.



We are a small firm, established in 2011, and carry out repairs to Motorhome and Caravan electronic equipment, specialising in Battery Charger and Power distribution products.  


We offer a fixed price repair service at £130 plus a return postage charge of £18 for Parcelforce 24 delivery within the UK. 


Martin is a time served and lettered engineer of long standing, not just in electronic repair, but electronic design and application. 


We understand what goes on inside and around the charger box better than any Motorhome or any Electronics repairer in the UK.

With Alan no longer with us we are unable to offer the same service as before regarding the repair of equipment in vehicles. This is something we will continue to look at with a view to reinstating this service in the future.

With comments like the following it is disappointing that we are not able to help in this way. 

Like this couple from Norfolk:

"Hi Allan, Back safely at home in Norfolk by dusk yesterday after our visit to you in North Wales. 

Tired but elated and just wanted to say another very BIG thank you for your work regarding our Motorhome.
Best regards,
C.R and M.R"


How many people drive 6 hours each way to get a Motorhome repaired and get home so delighted they send an email saying they are 'Elated'? 


In the beginning.


We had detailed electronics knowledge on mains battery chargers and Alternators, but wanted to know more about Batteries and their impact on a Charger. So in 2012/2013 we carried out extensive research on Batteries, cutting open many different makes and technologies in an effort to understand why one battery can work well and another fails so quickly. 

But especially why one battery might be kind to a Charger and why another seemed to have such a devastating effect.    


We dissected the batteries we removed from vehicles to see which technology was used, how well they had aged and what had taken place inside the battery during the ageing process. We noted those that were well made and those that were poor, and how it all related to the damage we found in the charger unit/Alternator. 

We also looked at how they were being used in the vehicle and what equipment they powered. 


Learning what type of use deteriorates a battery, with subsequent charger failure, also meant lots of conversations with Motorhome owners about how they use the vehicle. 

With these first hand comments on usage, the evidence of the damaged charger, plus being able to also see inside the batteries gave us a unique insight into Batteries, Charging systems and Motorhome usage. 

As a result we were able to create our Battery technology web pages from Real World experience to help everyone get the best from their vehicle. 



We know of no other team in all of Europe that repairs most makes of Battery Charger from around the World that sees the environment that led to the chargers failure, plus inside the Battery itself.

We believe this helps us to deliver a Battery Charger and Motorhome/Caravan electronics repair service like no other. That we are also one of the lowest cost is a bonus for you. 


This real world knowledge of both Batteries and thousands of chargers has steadily increased over the past years, resulting in our recognition as the UK's leading Battery and Charging specialists. 

One nice comment came from Andy Harris at Roadpro, who wrote on a forum -

"I have come across A & N Caravan Services before. Allan is very knowledgeable about many things to do with batteries and has written much that I agree with, because it’s simply true".



The knowledge we built up is freely published on these web pages to help everyone. 




Note that we do not sell any Batteries, the advice we give is 100% impartial.
