    possibly

    ein = eingang = input
    aus = ausgang = output

    ein = in

    Aus = out or off

    not sure what it switches though, does the 12v light go on and off when you
    switch it?

    regards

    Thanks all and thanks for the welcome, Mike
    Thanks for the tip on input and output, must really brush up on my German!
    I took it to Germany last year too. Should have asked:Doh:
    Have turned the switch on and off and red light stays on. Am just going to check it with my meter.
    Will report back
    Thanks again
    Ian

    could be to switch the charge between hab and cab batteries ein being internal ( hab ) and aus being external ( cab )

    caravans had this feature so you would switch it to car when traveling to charge everything from the car engine. then when on site you switched it the other way to use the caravans battery for lights etc..

    We've got a similar switch on the Dethleffs - switches all 12v equipment off :thumb:
