    Any suggestions or ideas?
    We have a CBE Control Panel - model PC320 -CA (if that means anything?) Fitted to a Carthago
    The panel when switched on goes through a system check and if everything is OK we should get a green light afterwards on the on/ off button.
    For various reasons we have never had a green light (long story) however - we now think we have cleared all the alarms off - water empty - gas bottle empty etc etc etc (like we don't have eyes anymore?)
    So - on reading through the instructions - no alarms now showing -no fuses with red light showing - should get a green light. But no - we have to have a red light - because - there is a little icon on the bottom right blinking - which in the instructions says 'system anomaly' But - no explanation of what this system anomaly might be.
    Any ideas what it might be - I also can't see any type of reset.
    Believe this is a new panel fitted just before we picked up the van -
    The dealer fitted a solar panel to the van - but it isn't a CBE regulator - I am wondering if this might be the cause?
    Of course we can take back to the dealers - but a long treck if its something simple
    Any suggestions appreciated

    CBE have contracts with motorhome builders so you can supposedly only order parts through the converter CA is just tagged on to the panel number to denote Cathargo. Mine is RA for Rapido
    The anomaly is just that "unexplained" Unless things do not work I'd err on ignoring it.
    I think it extremely unlikely the solar regulator is related to this

    Thanks for that Andy - Well at least we now know what the CA stands for -

    Do you know if e solar panel goes straight to the batteries or to the CBE control box, when I fitted solar to our CBE equipped van somebody said go straight to the batteries but I don't know why, I did it anyway.

    Ours switches off which I guess acts as a reset as well if you hold in the power button but it's a different model to yours I think.
