So, I have just had an A frame fitted to our fiat 500 and hooked up to our swift kontiki tonight for the first time. It is a Fiat ducato 2.3 180bhp. As soon as I plugged in, everything on the rear of motorhome has stopped working, lights, indicators, reversing lights and break lights. Everything else on motorhome is working, only rear lighting elements. When connected no lights on car either!! The car all works fine when I disconnect. This is the first time we have hooked it up. Any ideas anyone? Thanks

Ever since lighting was by Calor gas.
I think you'll have to depend on the fitting firm to sort it.
Modern vehicle systems are pretty sophisticated and if you fiddle about with doing any suggestion on here the fitting firm won't be very appreciative/understanding/co-operative/sympathetic.
But you can't do much harm checking the relevant fuses to see if any have blown.

Did he fit a cam bus conversion box. Modern vans will not work when simply connected to the wiring

I had this, old van wiring for tow bar, and a new (to me) fiat500 toad. Exactly as you describe, solved with a replacement tow bar electric kit.

Oh right sounds straightforward, the van and towbar is not 3 years old yet but I suppose could be the issue. Thank you
