    As Laneside suggested, I believe it's under the wardrobe. Ours went TU on our similarly aged Amethyst a few years ago. New Zig (ouch!).

    And the answer is -- right under the fridge with a narrow drop down lid.

    Sorted. It was just switched off, they'd never been on hook up before in 14 years.


    What a couple - both 82 years old and fulltiming. But in need of a bit of help now.

    No problem - thanks for the reply. Better if it had been in there rather than hidden under the fridge. If the fridge leaks then Zig gets zagged.

    Oops, sorry about that. We (me and Mrs JayDee) thought it was under the fridge. Senior moment? :Blush:

    It certainly does Brian.

    I meant, of course, under the wardrobe.

    Glad you found it, anyway, with or without my 'help' :Doh:

    When you learn about people like these two it reminds you that all that's stopping a lot of people from keeping on keeping on is ourselves, either mental mental attitude or, in some cases, disability. I hope we're still motorhoming in twenty years time.

    It's quite a thought. Not only our bodies but I can't imagine what the economy will be like in 2 years let alone 20. How about £100 a gallon for diesel ?

    Thanks to hilldweller

    Thanks to Hilldweller who spent hours with me last Saturday helping this elderly couple.
    It took such a long time to find this charger unit due to a crammed, overloaded!!! vehicle.
    When we switched it on the green charger light over the door illuminated and the voltage appeared to be ok, but it failed to charge. Have popped in a separate charger in for them and now everything is working.

    Will be taking you to the Original Third Eye for a curry as promised.

    Thanks again, Hilldweller!

    My ID is now 1OLL.
