    Not sure, but the switch might be a bayonet fitting. Insert and twist to lock it in position. Its about 5 years since I had a 2005 boxer van, but thats how i remember the brake pedal switch.

    Project 2000 automatic step

    Is it a single folding step? If so there is a limit switch that tells it that it has fully closed. It is incentre of step, best viewed from underneath when step is extended. Ours was same as car door courtesy light switch from, i think, fiat panda. Am sure there is a thread about it somewhere.

I have not tried it so have no experience of it, just noted its existance for the future.... More info here, post 19...

    Another Dometic fridge problem!!!

    If it works on 240 and 12v but not gas , then the gas is not putting as much heat into the flue as the electric side does. So either low lpg gas pressure or jet orifice, that ll be the hole, partially blocked is my guess. Can you try a different regulator or check pressure with manometer...

    From LR1218 to Votronic solar controller

    Radiator fan speed controller.

    Try a capacitor on the fan, mounted across the pos and neg. It will smooth the pwm signal. On a small fan a 220 micro farad works fine, at least I think that was what I used.......

    Question: too much solar for the EDL?

    Without knowing which ebl? I do not know its current rating or facilities to know / display charge and discharge from battery. You could limit the solar charge by putting a fuse between the solar panel and solar controller, thus protecting the ebl from excessive charge. If it blows you may not...
