Hoping for some help for my friends.
When we went away last week for a shakedown trip, their control panel flashed up fuses 2 - 6 fuses blown and 12v systems were lost.
Wriggling wires to the fuse box could bring things to life for a while then same message.
They have been to someone yesterday who was recommended and they were confident loose connections and said fixed. It was all ok again for a while but then, when operating the control panel, it went again exactly the same,
A phone call to Autosleeper today has suggested that something to do with the control panel or multiplugs connected to it.

Anyone come across this or has any ideas please?
Thanks

You aren’t too far away from the factory and their service centre is first class. Would it be an idea to go there? Can’t remember the name of the guy in charge but he really knows his stuff

Remove all connections from the panel and refit a couple of times. Pushing the connectors on and off can clean the pins. Certainly sounds like a loose connection somewhere, While you have the control panel out make sure that you don't have any loose pins in the connector ie. a dry joint. It will make and break contact as it arcs. Easy enough to fix with a steady hand and a soldering iron with a fine tip not one with a poker sized end.

Perhaps you should get them to join :D2 :)

Yes I’m working on it. Have just received another copy of the 2019 yearbook to give to them (y)
Going round in morning so will try your tips, thanks
