We have taken our caravan out the storage after winter break. Went to in laws and plugged it in to house ehu and nothing worked. Battery didn’t work either. We’ve tried two cables, two sockets and nothing. Control panel won’t turn on. We get a bit of a flick like it gets a bit of power from somewhere but nothing comes on. Does anybody know why ?? We checked all switches and fuses, all looks good, I’ve had a microwave clock for a bit then went off.  Please help we’re booked in tomorrow!!! 
Is it the panel ? No 240v in the house ? Flat battery ? ☹️☹️

No time for a systematic approach, so have to go with hunches and guesswork!

I guess at two issues:-

Overwintering without charging is likely to have flattened battery and quite possibly destroyed it.

 

On the 230V side first check needed is that the house socket works.

Next that there is power to the 230V sockets in the van. If you answer yes to the first and no to the second I guess at a loose connection in the inlet of the van.

Did you not have a similar problem with an ABI Jubilee in March last year?

Thank you ! I have just spoken to my neighbour and he said the same about inlet. Going to check in the morning !
