    Please can anyone help us with this problem, we tried putting sky on as normal and it was saying number 29, unplug wait 5 mins and plug back in, so this we did, but when we plugged it back in the box wouldn't turn on at all, also the dish box wouldn't turn on either, but as we had already got the dish up, when we come to come home the dish wouldn't come down, even when we turned on the engine it still didn't come down, all we had done is to take the lead out of the sky box, waitedd 5 mins and and put it back in and its caused all these problems. Everything else in the motorhome works, plugs lights etc. Fuses that we can see all look fine. Really appreciate your help with this

    sounds like the sky box power supply has gone faulty (common fault) and popped a fuse or trip supplying power to the dish etc in the van

    I have known the 12V feed for the sat. system to be picked up from the nearest 12V wiring, so if this is part of the habitation wiring it may have blown an unrelated fuse.

    Often the 12V feed for the fridge is a prime candidate as it is midships, as are many sat. systems.

    Thank you so much for your help, in the end it was a fuse inside the sky dish box that had blown. Much appreciate this site and the wonderful people that solve problems for us
