As you say Phil, curiouser and curiouser and now even curiouser!!!
Yesterday when I left the van I was getting 0.75 volts across the 12v heating element connector block, I went out this morning to have a look for the fuse that Ray alluded to and thought I'd just check the voltage again before I started.......13.6 volts!
What I still don't understand is, if there is >12v present at the element connector why is the element not heating and the fridge not cooling ..or is there another relay between the connector block and the element that operates when it receives the signal from the alternator?
As for the 0.6 volts that I have been measuring at the connector I have two theories, either the relay that operates when the engine is running was not fully disengaged and letting a small voltage through or the voltage was a back EMF from the permanent 12v supply to the fridge that supplies the light etc.????
Anyway we are off for a few days away and then to the Peterborough Show so that will be a good test for the electrics.
Thanks all for help and advice, I will report back with any news.
