    Hi All

    Newbie here, we have just got a 2009 Chausson Flash 03, and it's really nice, arrived onsite last night, and everything worked fine. However, must have done something silly today, not sure what.

    THe mains hook up is not working as it should, the 230V breaker a CBE-120DS appears all fine, and the fridge is working off the mains, however, the 3 ping plug sockets and abttery charger are now not working. I'm sure it's going to be something simple to to those of you experienced people.

    The base vehicle is a Ford Transit

    The 230V breaker/switch is a CBE DS-120S
    The main fuse box is a a DS-300
    Control panel is a PC 150TR

    If anyody can help, I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Tony

    And make sure all the 240v breakers are flipped upwards!:Smile:

    Hi

    Tried that, no joy, alas, no power to the 240V plug sockets either? :(

    Cheers

    Tony

    That's if you do mean, the CB-516 battery charger?

    Hi

    I can only see the 2 on the DC-120s, and they are both linked, and both are in the up position, or are there any other MCB's elsewhere in the motorhome?

    Cheers
    Tony

    It's normal for Chausson to put the 240V distribution box, 12V distribution box and charger all together.
    Are you SURE the fridge is running on 240V?:Eek!:

    It sounds more like the MCB on the EHU post has tripped!

    Hi

    Yes, the fridge is working off the 240 V hook up, as it switches off when the hook up cable is unplugged, and also when I switch the MB's off (down) on the D-120

    Cheers

    HiWe had a similar problem on our first time out in the bus.
    Our problem was that we hadn't turned the connector in the hook up to switch on the power! We didn't find out til we tried to use the 3 pin socket the next morning. It was our neighbour who came and put us right!!
    Felt right numpties but it's all a bit of a learning curve!! :Doh:

    OK it sounds like you have covered it all!:Sad:

    Sadly I will bow out with my tail between my legs. I would need to be there with a multimeter to diagnose this one!

    Good luck!

    The CBE 240V cables are all linked at a little grey junction box screwed to the floor under the kitchen cupboards I think. They are only connected by small 3 pin nylon plugs. Have you been under the kitchen units and inadvertently pulled a cable out?

    Last ditch suggestion!
