Hi dave, i dont know what type of van you have but it can only be a fuse or trip switch problem, on most motorhomes there is a fuse very near the battery which is encased in plastic with a opening door, there then is a strip fuse which looks like a 5mm wide 30mm long 1mm thick piece of lead held in place by two 8mm nuts the fuse is usually rated at 45amps.
I hope this helps you out
Andy.

Is there a master switch that needs to be switched on? In our Burstner we have one on the control panel. In the Autoquest we used to have there was one just inside the habitation door (so easily knocked if one wasn't careful).

Thank you for the replies, after sitting down and going through it from the start I realised that on mine that you need to put a key in to turn the battery on for the 12 volts which I hadn't done and found it in my glove compartment,think my head was in the clouds yesterday at getting away for our first trip of the year,

Thank you for the quick response though in trying to sort the problem out
