    With the many and complex appliances and electric devices on our vehicles I think the video below will be of real use to many here.

    It's looking at a simple way to look for and deal with voltage draws on our vans. Often called parasitic draws because as far as we are concerned everything is turned off yet our batteries loose voltage.

    It's a long video but bear with it it might prove invaluable

    Pah .. could have saved himself a whole load of time by following the golden rule:
    It's always the last fuse, so always pull the last fuse out first :roflmto:
