    Shotgun security in motorhome

    You can get single or two gun safes which can be bolted down quite easily and not add too much to the weight.

    Any ideas as to possible cause?

    Yes, started up all good no issues when the new starter battery was fitted. Access to the starter battery is dreadful in the Renault Master cab, so I got the workshop guys to do it. It started perfectly with the new battery.

    Any ideas as to possible cause?

    Brand new vehicle battery, installed only 2 or 3 months ago. Fob not opening the central locking. No lights whatsoever on dash when key in ignition, stereo not going on. The Adria's Electroblok uses a smart charge type system integrating the solar panel regulator directly to the Elecktroblok...

    Any ideas as to possible cause?

    Will try that during the week , hopefully its a simple fix but I did see the little light on the fob seemed to be working so not sure it will be that easy to solve.....maybe its too weak to send a signal though, on its last legs. Haven't changed fob batteries in years so could be that.

    Any ideas as to possible cause?

    Yes true, but I cannot get the fob to work to disarm the immobiliser and open the door via central locking. Also most other vehicles I have driven, the stereo works even when the immobiliser is armed.

    Any ideas as to possible cause?

    First thought was immobiliser, never had an issue with it before but I suppose it could happen. Its always worked no problems, but I suppose electronics have a habit of dying for no apparent reason. We are on the main Don Amott storage site so I guess the workshop techs could be booked to come...

    Any ideas as to possible cause?

    Went down to the motorhome today, have not been able to get there for a few weeks but was not too concerned as the solar charger was working well and batteries fine. Central locking wouldn't unlock from the fob so I let myself in using the key manually to unlock. checked the 12v system and both...

    Power Inverters

    Despite all the "mistakes" and arguments abounding on this thread about the mysterious red/green light issues, I still think it is not sensible to use a modified or quasi sine wave inverter to run sensitive electronics- I personally saw capacitors pop on some electronic knitting machines...

    Solar controller load

    Agree with Techno.......12V hairdryers are possibly the most ridiculous gadgets ever made! Good for the bin! They really are not fit for purpose, I think they would even struggle to dry a Barbie dolls hair! :Rofl1:

    Solo panel connections

    Perfectly correct. Absolutely NOT recommended to use a separate solar regulator with the newer EBLs, MPPT or not! The LR1218 makes a pretty efficient system, despite being not as advanced as MPPT and in my opinion its far better to have it all working as it should and not have other...

    Solo panel connections

    I agree - there are a few engineers codes used at the factory, not in any of the manuals :Eeek: The solar option is off by default. In addition to the LR1218, they do recommend the auxiliary that plugs into the EBL as well, so that the EBL charge rate does not exceed its capacity, if you...

    Solo panel connections

    Its a 225, I think, if I remember correctly from when I last peered under the floor!

    Solo panel connections

    Recently completed solar installation on my Vision 707SG 2007 that we have owned from new- it needs an LR1218 regulator added to the EBL under the floor near the door, and if fitting more than 80W, or a battery bank over 180aH, you really do need the additional auxiliary regulator for the EBL as...

    Are your Dogs So "Special"

    Who were these delightful people? Naming them would perhaps spur them on to come and explain their behaviour to everyone. Plus most peopple would want to know if they put their names down for a meet, to avoid that meet. What a shame the behaviour was tolerated by the organisers...

    Good solar supplier

    Try Mark from CLS, he has always done excellent jobs for me. He may cover Wales . He is mobile so comes to your van. Takes a few hours depends on what is required.
