    Hi,

    We were away this weekend using the power through the leisure battery's and solar panel when for no reason, all power was lost, sounded like a fuse had blown, out came the torch looked at the fuse's none blown tried the switch on the panel still no power, took out the fuse between the leisure battery's and the solar panel, it had not blown put it back in went and tried the panel again power back on.

    This happen after dark.

    Any ideas why,

    Only had TV on,

    Ian

    could be the fuse contact area is slightly dirty.

    one of my blade type fuses does the same thing if i 'waggle' it.

    mine could be a defective/dry solder joint on the fuse board and as it is OK 99.9% of the time I leave it alone

    Could be the fuse holder or the fuse dirty or old. Give it a clean and gofrom there. Is it interior or exterior fuse?
