    Arternoon all
    So starting to get used to the new style van after parting with a 05 Hymer and purchasing a 2013 Autotrail.
    The annoying fan in the bathroom that runs for 10 mins in the middle of the night after you had a quick pee now been disconnected however I can't see how to override the panel turn off when the engine is started!!!!
    So when you need a quick charge to the leisure battery and you set the engine running you have to sit in the dark and you can't watch he telly?
    Also all the electrics are dead when your driving along which stop me using the 12volt socket for charging and the 240v off the inventor for the slow cooker.
    There is obviously a fuse to pull or a switch to take out of a circuit ??? But does anyone know where, or which one.
    Thanks for your assistants in advance
    Colin, Angie and Barny

    Couldn't you use the cab 12v socket and an extension lead from the inverter

    Its usually a relay.
    When the ignition is turned on it activayes the relay, which is normally closed, and cuts the hab power.

    Where the relay is can be a mystery.
    My last Swift Kontiki, it was next ro the wardrobe under the bench seat.
    If you find it pull off the earth wire.

    With regards to fan on toilet on control to the right of flush button is the control button for the fan if you press it , it turns off the fan.

    Thanks to all for suggestions. Going away at Easter so I'll extension it from the invertor then carry on searching on my return.
    Happy travels for all those going out this weekend......
