    Hi,

    I have got a Alde Direct Battery back up Adaptor for the old type Alde control unit that needs to be wired to a 12v supply. Any ideas where I can pick up a permanent 12v supply in that area? Or do I need ot run a permanent 12v supply.

    Thanks

    Should be a plug behind the control panel?

    There won't be one near the control panel otherwise they'd have used it already.

    Why would they need one.... The op said they've just bought the adaptor.

    We don't know where the control panel is !!

    Mine was on the wardrobe wall and the header tank in the wardrobe.
    Also in the wardrobe was the TV booster which had a permenant 12v supply.

    The fridge will have a permanent 12v supply. Be careful though - the main supply that's connected to the 12v element is only available when the engine is running. A secondary supply is there all the time to operate the fridge electronics whatever fuel it's using (assuming a modern fridge) and that one will do the job.
