    The needle pointer,which indicates the level of charge in the batteries, the amount of waste water
    and fresh water, has stuck, in my Burstner t620 Travel Van. I have tried to open the panel but it seems to be a sealed unit so I have not been able to physically move it.
    The batteries are charged throughout the winter, either on hook up or because the van is driven every week. So I know the batteries are not flat. Could it be the cold and damp of winter? Does it work using a fuse which might have blown? It functioned all through September and October whilst we were away then once parked for the winter, no movement at all. Any ideas for a cure please?

    Snap, once it warms up, all back to normal.

    If you, or someone you know, is handy, the meters themselves will be generic & cheap. Scales are transferable.

    The specialists in Wales sold me a new meter. Silly price but he says that is what the Germans charge him.

    Is it A and N Caravans, or something like that.
