Caravan insurance is one of the most important considerations for many caravanners. Knowing that your investment is sufficiently protected, whether in between trips, on the road or pitched on site, will give you the peace of mind you deserve. Finding the best insurance will allow you to enjoy being a caravan owner without the worry of how you’ll manage should something go wrong.
After some playing around, I seem to have fixed the problem and DC now works!
I'm not sure what did it specifically as I did 3 things:
> Re-cut and stripped the battery terminals
> Unplugged and re-plugged in the cables on the Battery Condition Voltage meter (hoping I put the right ones in the right places -- diagram in owners manual didn't perfectly align with what I was looking at so gave it my best guess)
> Replaced all 6 10-volt DC fuses
Having DC working now, the voltage reads around 12 volts which is perfect -- and the battery seems to be charging.
Thank you all for the fantastic input and welcoming me to the forum -- there'll be more posts to come I'm sure!
Not seen the news reports but maybe they were complying with the law and had been told to move on. Surprised there are not reports of them using the empty caravan sites. Many years ago a convoy got on to the CMC site at Blackpool to use the free facilities. We used to get them on a grassed area at work and it would take about 2 weeks to get them to move leaving a large cost to clean up the area.
