Hi Mate
Had mine done last ~July. Bit of a con really only takes a few minutes. Checks the gass system for any leaks. Calculates if you have enough ventilation in the cabin for number of gas appliances in there (boor vents / roof air vents etc ) Checks batteries are secure. Also is there a petrol cut off. (This could be just a quick way of disconnecting the tank.) And are all labels in place ie sign says "petrol" on petrok tank !!!! etc also checks that your houdini roof window opens as an escape hatch if you have one. Gives you the certificate and takes the money !!!! Common sense mostly
Surprises me that he does not check navigation lights
Cheers Andrew

Yeah, all the above plus fire extinguisher and fire blanket, checked fuse board as well and no petrol cans on board.
