Hobby prestige 2006 transformer problem


Recommended Posts

Hi!

 I have tried to sort out the transformer problem by asking hobby if they can send a wiring diagram. This was 2 weeks ago and no diagram yet. I have confirmed power going in to the transformer via the kettle type plug. All fuses were checked ok. I want to check with my meter the cables going out to supply the 12v lights and pump and tv aerial. However it is difficult to confirm what the colours are. I want to confirm that the problem is with the transformer

Re-check the kettle plug is pushed all the way in, the earth pin protrudes further out than the Live & Neutral  and the spring clips on the earth could be holding the plug back, meaning it needs a more firm push to engage the other two connections.

This diagram is for a later year, different system.

Common sense isn't a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.  :rolleyes:

Yours is a Dometic Transformer 12 V 240 W, I had a wiring digram, if I can find it I'll post it.

 

Hobby 12v wiring colours, especially early ones, are an absolute pain all black and white (pos and neg) with a few odd colours thrown in 🤷‍♂️

Thanks for your reply all. I have tried pushing plug further in and no effect 😊considering fitting a leisure battery and charger. Any experience with this?

Try contacting https://leisureelectronicrepairs.co.uk/  about the transformer problem.

 

Post the model of transformer and I may have some wiring diagrams for adding a battery and charger.

Thanks. I have checked the company you gave a link to and looked in their online shop and they don’t have the dometic  model I have. I will look for the model number soon. I have moved out of the caravan for the season.

After 3 weeks, hobby have replied and said they can’t provide a wiring diagram for the transformer! 🤷🏻‍♂️I despair... anyone put their own leisure battery and charger in? Do I need a smart charger?
