? Fuse problem

Hi. We have a swift challenger 530se. The sockets are not working and some of the lights so i assume a fuse has blown....but which fuse and how can you tell? We recently had the van serviced and the main fuse was replaced as it had blown. I think it must be the same problem but i can't see which fuse it is. Any help greatfully received.
Thanks

You should have a trip switch possibly in the wardrobe and breakers as well if its not them follow the cable in from the battery box and you should find them

Hi Helen,

What year Challenger do you have. I'm just wondering if the water heater element has blown, can you give some more info as to what happened or what you did when it went. Jan (ggmad) had a similar problem last week.

Hi Again Helen,

what you need to do is check each fuse separately. You should have three fused MCB switches:

From left to right

MCB 1, Is for the Space heather,

MCB2, Is for Lights and Water Heater,

MCB3, Is for the Fridge, and Charger,

Make sure all the MCB switches are in the OFF position. Turn the main switch on, then turn on one of the MCB switches at a time. The one that is causing the problem will trip the main switch again. Make a note of which one it is and come back and let us know.
