Hi,
On our 1992 Hymer S700 the fridge has stopped working on 12v. I want to start by checking the relay but have no idea where to find it, any ideas?

Thanks

Allan

Hi Allan

I think it quite likely that there is a problem at the fridge and with that in mind you may find it best to check for 12v at the heater element. If there is a 12v supply to the element when the engine is running you can then assume that the element has failed ( and remove it for further check and/or replacement). If there is no supply at the element then work your way back to the relay.

In the past I had one fridge that the 12v wiring had failed at the connector where the wiring attached to the fridge, cutting back the wiring and cleaning the connector cured that one... in another fridge one of the elements had failed ( the 240v one) and checking the supply at the element quickly established the cause of problem.
