    Hi Gordon..sorry to hear your problem.
    I don't know the Sargent psu but there are a few different model. ..It might help if you say which one you have...
    Were you on ehu when this happened and im assuming the fuse that keeps blowing now is the main fuse which handles the leisure battery charging current and the 12v habitation loads?
    You could try isolating all the circus and then one at a time reinstating them to see if fuse still blows...
    Ta andy

    We have isolated all fuses one at a time and the only one that blew is the 20 amp leisure battery
    The model is ec325
    Many thanks

    If the only thing left connect via the 20A fuse is the Sargent unit then I would suggest that it the Sargent unit that is faulty. The earlier 'overheating' message pretty well confirms it.
