    Some modern vans/Motorhomes have a kill switch (Autotrails) which cuts power to all services. Try switching it on if this is the case. Do you have a manual for your motorhome. If so, give it a read, there quite helpful.

    Hi Shirley, you say batteries fully charged, which implies your control panel is showing a healthy reading is that for both the engine and habitation batteries?
    You say no lights, etc. Do you mean external vehicle lights, or internal living area, or both?
    Are you hooked up to mains supply?
    You say you have checked all the fuses and all are Ok, I assume you mean the fuses on the Electroblock?
    Do any of the internal bits work? Eg water pump, 240v sockets?
    The only time I have anything like that happen to me was with our first van, on its first outing, when the Electroblock itself failed.
    Have you by any chance switched off the Electroblock connection to the leisure batteries? My Electroblock has a "batterie ein, batterie aus" rocker switch.

    Start again at the beginning and work through the lot, the. Post again. Gary

    Silly question, with your ignition key in, turn the key to start up, does the battery turn over the engine Y/N, if no then the battery may be US if it shows as being fully charged, if it does then check out your external lights, also check your main power bank that has all the switches, and turn the main on/off switch to on. Then check your internal lights etc. Meanwhile your engine is charging your batteries while it is running.

    You really need to tell us what kind of motorhome you have and, ideally, what charging system it has. I know you have replied 'Fiat Ducato' in another thread on this same subject, but that is not a type of motorhome; it is the make of the base chassis. What is the motorhome name/make and model? (e.g. make: Swift, Hymer, Autocruise / model: Bolero, B544, Wentworth etc.)

    Might be a silly question, but I always go for the obvious first. Is the cabin light switched on?
