Concord charisma. Electrical

Hi all Iím trying to help a single woman who drives a 2016 Concord charisma...the mains sockets donít work but everything else does...

Is there a trip switch in the vehicle?

Sheís not very familiar with it yet..

There is certain to be a RCD plus at least one MCB. I presume of course that she is on EHU? [I know it may be an obvious prerequisite but after 10 years or more on motorhome forums it is always best to start from basics.]

You could try giving Southdown Motorhomes a call and asking for technical help. They're Concorde dealers so should be able to tell you where to look.

Yes thatís my assumption, however..Iíve asked her to look for an rcd inside the vehicle but she has no idea where to look...
Yes, she is on hook up....she has all 12 volt available but it appears she has no 240 volt sockets working....

Iíll pop around tomorrow to see if she has been able to sort it...

I believe she is going to try and contact a dealer to seek advise....

Is it all things mains operated e.g. battery charging, heating, fridge etc or just the sockets?

Thatís a fair question...as far as Iím aware..itís just Sockets, Iíll ask how the fridge is currently running, of course...if mains are off it will be running on gas...
From what i can see, battery charging is fine..but the solar will be running them anyway.

A friend of mine had a Charisma and the electrical controls were in the garage area, no idea if the one in question will be the same but worth a look.
