Fuse problem Hobby 650 2002

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Wonder if any one can help with this.

Every time I turn the shower on it blows the fuse to the water supply and lights?

Its a hobby 650 prestige 2002 just got it so really don't know very much about fuse size etc.

 

Should I get a sparks to look or just increase the fuse size?

Advice much appreciated.

I don't know your Hobby or its fuse size but one thing I would not do is increase the fuse size.

" Just increase the fuse size" is downright dangerous unless you know that the existing fuse is too light!

Check the handbook, if you have one, it should list the fuse ratings. Failing that get someone in.

Having needed to ask the question, this is the only safe option.

Does it still have the original electric circuits?  Many Hobbys have  modified electrics to suit UK use.

 

If the electrics are the original then the water pump, cassette pump and toilet lighting are 12v dc from the transformer with a 7.5amp fuse.  The other lights are 12v ac via two 10amp fuses.

 

If you still have the TrumaTherme water heater the heating element may have corroded and will short the mains fuse which will cut the supply to the transformer..

Hi

I've got a sparky in at the weekend to check it.

The Truma seems to work fine I called a hobby spares place and they say 10amp?

Ill try the original suppler to see if they modified.

The 2002 Hobby handbook wiring schematic lists the fuse ratings as posted earlier.
