Bessacarr e795 Control Panel

Hey guys. I’m new here. Based in Northern Ireland. 2005 bessacarr is great but went out today to ‘warm her up’ and the control panel was dead (above hab door) and engine wouldn’t start. I’ve put a slow Halfords charger on the engine battery but find it strange that the control panel was blank as I had her plugged in and charging so expected a message at least to say vehicle battery was low. Is there a fuse somewhere for the control panel? Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance

Hi Darragh, welcome from Belfast - what part are you in?

Unfortunately your only reply so far is from the forum's least accomplished 12v expert!

Had you the MH on EHU for long? How long is it since you last drove it?

If i remember correctly the top left button turns the panel/power on and the lower left button switches between batteries. If you want to charge the engine battery whilst on hook up you have to select it.

Now that you have been charging, but which battery of course remains to be answered, as regards fuses there is usually a 230v fuse protecting the charger.

Is the van charger working ?

That could be due to a faulty supply at the “house” end, or a faulty cable or faulty plug or socket - check all of those points to ensure that 230v is actually reaching the MH by plugging a normal mains operated device into a mains socket in the MH.

Once you have ensured 230v IS reaching the MH, check which battery you are charging at the switch mentioned.

If it has been left on charge for a very long time, it is possible that a fault in the battery would have switched everything off.

You said you are charging with a Halfords slow charger, are you charging the vehicle battery directly by connecting to it under the bonnet, or the leisure battery ? If after 12h charging the vehicle still will not turn over and you KNOW the charge was going directly into the vehicle battery then that battery could be dead, that could drag the leisure battery down too.

My GUESS is a faulty 230v connection or supply somewhere. Check the socket that you are plugged in to and it’s appropriate protective fuse.

Do try those points and come back to us so we can think further if needed. I do not have a wiring diagram readily available to know about fuses, your handbook may give you some guidance.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

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

I presume that all now works and he has overlooked updating us…

Sadly, that seems to happen rather often.
