we have a bailey pageant series 5 bretagne, I've been told to use the 12 volt isolater switch but I can't find it? I have a mains switch on the control panel along with lights etc but no 12 v switch, am I missing something or do these models not have one??

thanks

If it's like our Series 5 Vendee, the panel just inside the door has a "master" switch which controls the 12 volt system - along with a (wildly inaccurate) volt meter and switches for pump, lights and awning light. Just out of interest, who has told you to use the "isolator", and for what purpose?

Can I as an electrical numpty join in please. I have recently traded up from a truly ancient Sprite, to a 2005 Pageant Monarch. I used to keep my old caravan's battery topped up when stored, with a small solar panel in the front window connected externally toi the battery.

The Bailey has a 12v socket in the work area. If I turn the master as described above, OFF, with the panel connected, then the voltage meter jumps constantly going right to the extreme of the meter. If I leave the master on, then it sits happily and steadily about the 12v setting. Am I OK to leave the circuit open to have this strady reading.

 

The solar charger is a small one with a 1. 5W rating similar to this one from Maplins. http://www. maplin. co. uk/p/solar-powered-12v-15w-battery-auto-trickle-charger-l58bf

Keith - can I suggest you start a new topic in the Caravan Electric section as this thread above is a couple of months old and relates to a different problem?
