No Manuals for Renault Knaus German Origin bought in Spain

Hi, I'm parked up in Aldershot where my interior electrics have just ceased to function! Check the fuses I can access - all intact. I have two Leisure batteries "powered" by a single Solar panel. I am showing one battery fully depleted with the other 80% charged yet no sockets or TV work internally. Some light do - others barely do. There's no power for my waterproof and not even enough to maintain the power to my Knaus display panel. Can any one help or advise me how to remedy this? Oh, I had to change the gas bottle yesterday too and now my fridge won't ignite! I've purged several times for 5 seconds to no avail yet my gas hod is fully functional.
It's not been my best 18 hours in my motorhome I have to say!!

I can imagine you're pretty cheesed off PKSES but welcome to the forum anyway.

If you give more detail re the MH we might be able to help - model, year ?

It's odd that one leisure battery is gone while the other hasn't as they're usually wired so that they work as a single.

The fact your fridge isn't working is probably due to needing 12v in its functioning.

Hope someone will be along soon with better info about the 12v.

Hi and welcome to MHF.

As Jean says, the leisure batteries are usually joined together, but 80% is low anyway unless you are using power somewhere or not recharged, is the fridge sparking?

"There's no power for my waterproof" no idea what that means I'm afraid.

Did you turn on the new gas cylinder?

I googled Renault Knaus Motorhome manual and three or more sites turned up with promises of PDF downloads.
We don't know what model or year you have so not much more help forthcoming, I suspect.
