Our MH has now been sold so this web site will not be updated again

[click above for pictures]

Due to my age, 80 years old, and health reasons we are forced to give up the pleasures of a motorhome,  and has now been sold.

Description of the motorhome can be seen through out the pages of my web site here.

The MH has MOT until MAR 2017 and its mileage is 109224

1. Charging Relays in the engine bay


Charging Relays in the engine bay

     It got me thinking, I always needed to ensure the mains charger was on during any stay at a camping site. I had decided the leisure battery was faulty.

     It was while carrying out some engine battery maintenance, that I noticed the contacts to the cables of the charging relays were protruding from the relay container.

    Checking these cables I found the relays, while being pushed into their holders, had pushed the cable contacts out of their holders. This in turn meant the relays were not getting the charge voltage to the leisure battery.

     Cure: Hold the relay with one hand, and with a pliers in the other, push the contacts into the relay holder.

     A recent trip to France proved we could go three days without the charger on, thereby ensuring we did not trip the camp site electrics when using other electric devices.

    Since this incident I have fitted a Volt meter on the dash to indicate charging volts. See the circuit diagram below showing the position.

Due to the relays detriorating in their supports I have rebuilt the panel
