    Hi All
    We were out in the van (Jeanie) last week and hooked up to leccy. But when I hooked up and turned on the main switch, the lights, pump etc wouldn`t work, the sockets were fine.. The Zig Marque V control panel was in the middle position, ie both batteries off. When I switched to the leisure battery position, everything worked. We haven`t had the van long, but I am sure when we have been out previously, everything worked with the switch in the middle position. Am I right in thinking this or is dementia setting in. I`ve had the back panel off today and nothing seems amiss, all fuses are ok too. Also evreything works ok with the leisure battery on when we are not on EHU. Can anyone tell me A/ if I have a problem and B/ what the solution might be.
    many thanks in advance
    Gary

    Hi
    Did the 3 pin plugs work or just the 12v ?, The camp you were on if it was a C Club site you have to turn the inserted cable to the right for contact then press the button to release. Pete

    Dementia setting in im afraid.

    The centre position will be a battery isolator.....neither hab nor engine batteries connected.

    The mains hookup will run eveything 230v but not 12v.

    The switch may also be connected to the engine battery in one postion.....opposite habitation position... meaning you could charge the engine battery, or maybe even use it as a leisure battery in emergencies....but not recommended as you could flatten the starter battery leaving you in the brown smelly stuff.

    Thanks for your replies, I must be losing it, 60 next week so inevitable I guess. Can I assume then that with the switch in the leisure position and hooked up to the mains, the battery is being charged as well. Sorry for dumb questions but I am very new to this malarkey. Love it though!
