Hi I’m new to the site
we have recently bought a 2008 sterling europa 495 and this is our second time using it with the same resulting issues. It’s our second caravan and have been caravaning for 3 years.
The same issue has happened- after 2/3 days of use the lights go dim, the cooker ignition stops, water pump stops, fridge light goes out & central heating fans stop( but heater still works)
the display unit on the mains isolater goes blank but the 3 switches- heater/water heater/ battery charger still light up. Although this morning it now reads 7.8 instead of the 12?
We always have the battery charger switched on.
Its as though half the caravan is running in electric hook up and the other half is relying on the battery which is being drained very quickly?
we leave home with a fully charged brand new battery- Duracell/banner 115ah
On our first trip this happened I suspected the battery so bought the new duracell battery for £130 but 3 days into our stay the same issues happened.
When in use the caravan is hooked up to electrics.
Ive checked the black fuse box and all fuses are ok.
Next to the fuse box are 2 loose/free wires with nowhere to go?
Id really appreciate any advice on this as it’s driving us nuts!!
