This is not a question, but a little advice which may help others. 


The control panel above the door scrambled itself when I tried to start the engine, and had not realised that the vehicle battery was nearly flat. I was alerted to the problem by a chirping noise coming from the Electronic control panel above the rear door. It was accompanied by a scrambled message showing on the panel screen, and none of the 12v electrics in the habitation area would work. 
I checked all fuses and switches on the PSU 200 unit inside the wardrobe, then tried disconnecting the main battery feed hoping it would reset, but it made no difference. I Googled Sargents website and found some info on the PSU 2007 detailing what to do in the event of a scrambled message.  Remove the Control display unit. Disconnect the main loom plug. Wait 30 seconds and re-connect. This thankfully reset the unit and everything worked as previously.  
I suspect this probably saved me a lot of cash, given todays labour charges.

Disconnecting the control panel (thereby re-booting is also the answer to panel oddities on the later Sargent units. An alternative is to remove a couple of fuses on the charger to get the same effect. Once again, the Sargent web site has the details.
