Re: Electrics.....??

It's an absorption fridge not a compressor fridge, works off a heating element rather than a motor

Re: Sliding window catch for Autohomes Kamper

Put a small length of wood at the base of the non sliding window so the sliding section can't open as hits the wood as a temporary solution while you scour the four corners of the earth for a new catch

Re: High Top Removal

I didn't even know Devon did a fixed high top. One day you will look back and laugh at all this. Might not be for a while yet mind  :wink:

Re: Electrics.....??

Oh and as for the heat damage to the fuse or fuse holder, the fridge pulls about 8A when running on 12v if I remember correctly so if the blade fuse holder connections are loose it will get hot without rupturing the fuse. You could try swapping the cable to a different fuse holder in that fuse bank....

Re: Electrics.....??

There are three sets of connections in the white box on top of the fridge. 12v for electronic gas ignition, 12v for the fridge heating element for use when driving and the 240v for running the fridge when on electric hook up. It is more than likely conected to the 12v element as the electronic ignit...

Re: Zig cf8 not working replacement or repair

Don't forget to check that your earths are sound. Good point Oldie  :ok Actually come to think of it if the front cover of the Zig is off and just hanging by the cabling its not earthed to the main casing. That threw me once years ago, I can't remember what difference it made, but it did. It might ...

Re: Zig cf8 not working replacement or repair

There could be multiple issues here, I certainly wouldn't bin the Zig just yet. One step at a time I think. Turn all outgoing circuits off or remove fuses. You are absolutely sure that the battery is fully charged and connected to terminals 3 & 4 of the Zig Unit connector block on the back? If t...

Re: Solar on Komet roof?

I looked at standard rigid panels and none were suitable to fit to the Komet roof, you can't access the inside of the roof to fix them and besides they couldn't sit flat to the roof and would be trying to take off as you were driving along due to the wind creating lift under them. These panels were ...

Re: Electrics in the gas locker

I was not having a go at you Jeff. Electricians are not required to be able to know regs off by heart, indeed I had to look up the relevant reg out of the book. Electricians are required to be able to find where in the regs book the relevant regulations are that state what is allowed (or rather what...

Re: Electrics in the gas locker

You should get suitably qualified advice preferably from a camper/caravan experienced person ( as opposed to just domestic trades person). ALL electricians are required to be able to interpret the relevant regulations no matter whether they are domestic, commercial, or industrial electricians so th...

Re: removing hi top

You have to cut from the inside - if you force the top outwards with wedges inside you put the sealant under tension and it cuts a lot easier. I wouldn't have thought that anyone could cut it from the outside with any degree of ease. That's not possible with an Autohomes high top. The interior wood...

Re: removing hi top

Happily my roof wasn't as bad as the one in the previous post - still pretty bad though, but as it was only the outer roof 'skin' that had holes in it (lower sides only just above the gutters) and the actual structural crossmembers were as good as new I didnt weld I patched. Looked a bit like the hu...
