    Had a leak in our double floor and the b2b charger and inverter were sat in half an inch of soppy water, got a shock when trying to dry it out.

    Inverter seems to work but not sure of the fan on it, but have not seen the charger do much since. No fuses blown but no start up of the charger either

    Sterling have a good repair service. The B2B is permanently connected, add water to a powered up PCB and it might be all over for it!
    If it was not connected, a good drying out before reconnection would have got it going possibly.

    I wold ask Sterling for a diagnostic and quote for repair. They turn around units quite quickly.

    Andy @Techno has fitted one of these
    Maybe he can confirm

    I had one fitted on my last van and from memory it was connected to the positive side only.

    Great bit of kit
