The site might have rules that require you to have a gas check each year.

The gas I would  have serviced yearly. Electrically , as above check the park requirements. If the park has a set periodic inspection which requires you to have your van tested, remember it only confirms your electrics up to the point of supply. 

You should then ask the park to provide a new copy of there tested electrics.... probably find they won't test their supply periodically.

 

BS 7671- guidance for electrical  testing and routine checks

 

(Your)Caravans : Routine check every 1 year                     Max period between inspections 3 years

 

(Park Supply)Caravan parks: Routine check every 6 months                     Max period between inspections 1 year
 

Although the BS7671 can be described as guidance, if you were unfortunate enough to have an electrical fault and the caravan had a fire, then your insurance could request copies of any electrical testing carried out and compare against the period time frames. This could effect any claim.
