Looking at my domestic fridge for powering on 12v, when I select battery no light comes on by switch.
Reading the manual it says the fridge won’t work until the engine is running & the van moving.
Is this correct or should the light come on anyway when I select battery?.
Also when selecting gas I hear it trying to ignite but light stays orange not yellow, van is parked on a slope at home.
Thanks

Hi, the light only comes on when the engine is running as the fridge is operated by a relay that is energised by the alternator. On our Nuevo there are 2 relays under the driver's seat which operate the fridge and habitation battery split charging. Hope this has helped, don't know about the gas though.

You need to try on the level if it  works then the slope is to much

This was a topic recently raised elseware on the forum. In a nut shell if your van is fitted with the MES control system then the 12v light will only come on when the engine is running AND the van is moving. I understand that if a Sergaent (or other) control system is fitted the light should come on with just the van engine running.
