    Yes I believe most UK built vans isolate the hab electrics when the engine is running or ignition on. Not so European built vans.

    Hi & welcome

    My first reaction is to say it's a fault but which electrics are not working?

    That is normal on British built MHs.
    The only thing that will work is the 12v supply to the fridge normally.

    Bl**dy annoying isn't it. :Wink:

    To clarify I am wondering if the original post is talking about Cab or Hab electrics not working, hence my query.

    I would expect cab auxiliaries to work but not hab on some motorhomes.
