I have an Autosleeper Devon. At the bottom of the passenger bench seat/bed there are two switches which light up when turned on. I have read the manual from cover to cover but still don’t know what the switches are for. Can someone help?

I do not know for sure, but possibly they are for tank heaters, one for the fresh and one for the waste water tanks?

I have a 2010 Devon and no switches on mine, 13 amp power socket on front off Drivers side bench seat. The only thing on passenger side is bracket for small table, fire extinguisher used to be there but I have moved it to side of habitation door on fridge wall. extinguisher not safe fitted behind drivers seat, not easy to get at.

Almost certainly but would need to check under van to be sure.

Try AS with your build number. I expect its a factory extra.

Or perhaps a mod by a previous owner.  First port of call is to discover whether they are 240V or 12V.  Do you get the red light when not on EHU?  If so, then do you get the red light when the hab electrics are switched off.  If still yes it is almost certainly an owner's mod and may not be fused.  Don't use it till you know what it is and that it is adequately wired would be my advice.  You should be able to follow the wires inside the bed locker.

Hi Micky we have spoken to the previous owner and it is as has been suggested they are tank heaters. Thanks to everyone who has tried to help.
