    i wondered if any funster could help me find the fuse for the round 12volt cigarette type socket with television Ariel lead next to it that is in my rear lounge. Motor home is a sundance 630l 2005 model, the socket was working while I was using tyre inflator for air suspension then just stopped and there is no power to the socket. I have checked the fuses both sides passenger and driver of the lower dash panel and the big black box near air cleaner in engine bay. I am now at a total loss, the colour of the 12volt wires at the back of the round socket is red/white, and yellow. Thank you I.n anticipation of your replies, regards bill.

    Thank you Ed Excel, so it looks like there is a 5 amp fuse lurking around somewhere,
    It is not to far away from the control panel that is over the habitation door but I can't see any fuse boxes or in line fuse anywhere near there ,I will have another root tomorrow and if no success I will copy the wiring diagram you kindly posted and go to todds in lostock hall , Coote lane. Thank you for your kind help, regards Bill.

    Hi Bill, the fuse should be a blade fuse on the sergant power supply unit. There will be the 240v circuit breakers on the panel, but also a couple rows of fuses (under the clear plastic covers) supplying 12v to various things like lights, pumps, battery charge etc, including TV 12v power socket.

    5amp fuse will not be enough for a tyre inflator. Need 10a min, they draw quite a current.

    I would use the cigar lighter in cab next time, presuming you have one, that will probably have a bigger rated fuse

    Always presumes you can still reach the air input from there of course :)
