Hope this makes sense
Hi OBtech....many thanks for this. I will check the fused line tomorrow am...have just had to give in due to light etc....sorry hadn't picked up your mail earlier.
If it is the fuse, can I make one up myself using the cable and a suitable fuse froma motor factors (for now)....do you know what the fuse is rated to by any chance?
Further, any ideas what might have caused it? The voltage on the smartcraft currently fluctuates between 10.9 and 11.9 ish....not sure if that is correct /indicates the same /an alternator problem. I have a twin battery set up and run it on 'both' could I have froed something? I can't get the problem to show on muffs...
Sorry for all the questions...am pulling my hair out.
Sorry....meant to say THANK YOU!
