Title: Tvan 240v outlet problems
Post by: FergyMitch on December 23, 2017, 05:57:09 PM
The 240v outlets in front of the kitchen on our 2013 Tvan Muranji Mk3 have stopped working. We are connected to 240v power, and everything else seeems to be working.
Any ideas on where I should start looking?
Thanks

Inside the trailer, at the control panel.
There will be a 240v. lead and plug that's not plugged in to the 240v. outlet.
Your sockets at the kitchen are on an extension lead, they aren't hardwired.
If they were, you'd need an Electrical Safety Ticket for the trailer.

Thanks Cruiser, but the 240v plugs next to the Projector charger on the control panel have not been unplugged. Is there a fuse somewhere that might have blown?
Thx

Hi,
There is a combined circuit breaker and earth leakage detector next to the plugs in the van, check to make sure that it hasn’t been tripped.

Cheers,
Mal

My first thought was, 'you've checked the Earth Leakage Safety switch? surely you've not missed that.'

That was the first thing I checked, and have switched it on and off to no avail.

Make sure some rotten mong**l hasn't pulled your lead out enough so it's not making contact at either end?
Take a 240 v. light and plug it into -- end of lead, socket on pole outside, and each of the outlets inside the trailer.
Check at the control panel end for the leads and plug them into the end of the power lead one at a time with a light plugged into the kitchen outlet.
Your sure there's not a lead still unplugged laying alongside the mattress?
You'll find it one way or another.

You’re a genius Cruiser, the plug had been pulled out a little bit-probably by kids running by!
Problem solvered!!!
Thanks for your help

Thanks mate, we’re at Cheyenne’s Beach east of Albany WA for 5 days over Xmas, then moving on. Beaches are magnificent here, and 26deg today.
Have a great festive season.
