    Hello to all our Motorhome Fun friends. It' s Littlehouse again (or should I say ' petit maison' as we are now living in France) you may remember that we sold our Citroen / Talisman Autosleeper, as we thought we wouldn't use it in France. MISTAKE!!!. So, we've bought another 'cheapie' which needs a bit work but as Brucie would say, ' The Price is Right ! The new 'van is a Mobilvetta Top Driver 52. It has 'soft floor syndrome' which I'm busy fixing, and a small house battery drain which I'm busy investigating. The electrics generally seem ok, everything working as it should, but I'm surprised to find that on such a well equipped 'van, there is no battery charger to operate when hooked up, I may have to rectify this, but first ,I need some advice. Does anyone have/ know where I can get a wiring diagram for a late 90s model? Also, can anyone tell me what the 'thing' is in the closed space above the swtch/fuse panel? Looks like some coils/transformers contained in a perforated steel enclosure. No writing, no switches (unless somewone knows better) Any help appriciated. Cordialement, Liz 'n' Clive.

    Best description of a charger I've heard today. You should spot 240V on one wire and probably two single wires which will be the 12V out.
