Half Interior Lights & CD/DVD no 12v, yet fuses okay

I have a Bailey Senator 6 - fuses are okay - yet interior lights in front half of van plus CD/DVD player and Antenna booster are not receiving 12v supply. Fault is same on AC or battery supply. Any thoughts on what might be causing this?


It could be the in-line fuse that has blown and needs replacing. A 12V circuit is protected from an overload situation by an in-line fuse which is connected to the feed coming from the battery's positive terminal. It is normally located close to the battery but should be inside your caravan. If you locate the positive feed from your battery to inside your caravan, you should find the in-line fuse holder. Once you have found the holder, change the fuse and see if that works.

Thanks for your feedback. It has turned out I have a faulty join in a wire or perhaps an insulation issue somewhere in cabinetry. Auto electrician has created a temporary bypass that has fixed the problem.
