    We are new to this, we just bought a van which has been made into a motor home and has the ZIG CF9 installed. We have played and pressed and chose various combinations but we can't get anything to work except the green light! We know all batteries are charged as we have been out in the van. Can someone please guide us to which way the buttons should be pressed to get our electrics working? Thank you in advance.

    Does the one marked 12V not light the red LED when switched ?

    Have you checked all the fuses.

    Note: if you are not plugged into the mains nothing on the 240V side will do anything.

    The left button probably needs to be down to turn on 12v. In a previous van I had this panel which really only handles mains and 12v. There may well be more switches else where.

    What are you trying to make work and did it work when you were shown round the van?

    We were so wrapped up in excitement when we bought the van that we totally forgot to ask how to use it

    If we press the first switch on the left on we get a light which we assume means it is ON. Is this right?

    That'd really common. The main thing is you saw it work. We can help you get the rest.

    Most self builds only have the habitation battery wired so you probably won't get anything to work if car is selected. Stick to van. Left switch down (probably) and you should have a green light and a red light. Two red lights means you battery isn't good, no light means either the switches aren't right or its not wired right.
