Fridge not working on 2008 Autotrail Apache 700 2


New to the forum, delighted to meet you all.
I am having trouble getting the fridge to work its a RM7361
there are no lights coming on from any power source 12v, mains or gas
I have read there is another fuse under the bonnet that may have blown, any pointers to locate this fuse, is it a 20 too?

Any help appreciated. Just bought the camper and this is the last teething problem I have!!

We have a Swift, so details may vary, but yes, there is another fuse and relay on ours mounted in a black box behind the air filter under the scuttle (under the bonnet of course).

For us, to access the black box follow these instructions from “passion wagon” way back in 2007. I asked because our step stopped retracting when the engine started and there was no warning buzzer. The fuse controlling the fridge and the 12v supply can be found ;

crouch down and look up and behind this cover
fuse is here
By the way it will also have stopped your fridge working on 12v whilst travelling!
Note the line printed in bold.

In that box there are two fuses and two relays, one of each of those controls the fridge AFAIK. A couple of posts from 2007 said that the black box was located near the vehicle battery, so feel free to take your pick....

Good luck, do let us know how you get on, so that we can all learn “just in case”. Welcome to MHF, of course........ 😀

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Hi Penguin

Sorry still struggling with this. Have fridge now working on 12v but cant get it working on mains or gas which is confusing me even more!! The flashing orange light on gas is not even coming on

I can't locate this fuse under the bonnet

@Penquin may not have seen this - just giving it a bump.
