    I have an autosleeper Ravenna 1998 that needs a new control switch panel. The item code number is ZIG SP6AS; all the recommended suppliers have confirmed this part is now obsolete. Does anyone have a spare kicking about or can recommend a place where I might source one.

    Many thanks to all who have helped already - this is my last attempt to replace the part.

    try caraparts - they have an ebay shop. They have new and used, some old stock etc - probably find what you need there. Prices good, delivery fast.

    http://stores.ebay.co.uk/caraparts

    Give them a call, as not all is listed.

    Hi Norman, 1st question is this just a switch panel or does it include a charger.
    2nd question, what is actually faulty that needs replacing i.e. what does not work. how about a photo?

    Thanks Roger I have tried the suppliers mentioned in chat last night with no success.

    It is just a switch panel with a master isolation switch and six individual isolation switches to isolate the water pump, lights, spark ignition to fridge, cooker and fire.
    During the life of the van water has seeped into the back panel of the switch as the water dried out and the leak was fixed the corrosion has continued until the printed circuit broke in half last year whilst we were in france.
    A friendly MHer disconnected the three main isolation switches and connected them all to the master switch, so everything still works. However if was say, to have a pump problem I could not isolate it without switching off all the van's electrics. So it makes sense if possible to have it fixed.
    I will try and send phot if I can.

    Thanks Norman

    as long as it is a single sided board it should be easy to bridge the damaged portion with a soldered link. or just replace with hard wiring. quite a straight forward repair I should think. Local radio ham or electronics engineer should be able to help you out. If you PM me a direct email address I will send you a list of radio hams in your area (13) one will sort you no problem. Details are from a 2006 list so some may well be out of date. But easy to check with 192.com
