    Have a 2007 Cheyenne SE with a fuse box in the cupboard along woth the media unit, i think... I have a sat dish, no ariel and also a solar panel which the wiring goes into the rear of the media unit and then I believe into the fuse box Habitation, normally there is a seperate voltage box for a solar panel, however i cant find one for the panel in the MH. I checkied the bty staus on both leisure and vehicle on the panel by the hab door anfd they are showing..
    ..Leisure 13.20 Vehicle 13.1 There is also another figure of 1.3 amp form battery current.

    ANy thoughts on this please.
    Why wouldnt there be a seperate panel for the solar.?

    if its a modern electronic control panel (shault etc) many have a solar controller built in.

    there is a limit to how much power they can take thought.

    1.3amp could be solar charge current or possibly a current drain.
