Hi there all,
A new caravan owner of a 2011 Autosleeper Kensington recently purchased in New Zealand to be able to enjoy the freedom  of being a Grey nomad for our retirement 
Have joined the group to be able to get the oddbit of advice from those more experienced than myself
Best wishes to all

Hi and welcome to the forum from the East Neuk of Fife in Scotland.

Despite being on this forum for over a decade, I didn't even know that AS had ever made any caravans so your's must be a bit of a rarity. 

Not sure if any other current forum members have one, but presumably there will be some commonality with the camper conversion hab areas at least so hopefully we may still be able to help with some things. 

Look forward to hearing more about these rare beasts!

As I mentioned in your earlier question, there are very few caravan owners on the forum hut we do have a few members from New Zealand. If I remember  correctly there were 4 different models, Kensington,  Mayfair, Westminster and Grosvenor. Production was only for 2 or 3 years,  very high specification and high price to match.

Only seen two Kensingtons in Stonie one year and one in Bridington.
Have a nice day.

Photo of the gauge in question, be interested if anyone with a Motorhome has a similar gauge

Welcome to the forum. You’re location reminds us of a fabulous holiday we had in a hired van. We managed four weeks split between both islands.
Regarding the gauge it’s not the same but I vaguely remember our older Duetto van had a duel gauge for the battery or water level depending on witch way a switch was pressed. Try pressing the volts or water switch it can’t do any harm. The dealer we bough our Duetto from told us about water level but not battery. scratch head

The only combined voltage and water level gauge I've seen in AS motorhomes is a square one as in photo below. That was made by Bonus Plug In systems.  Your switches are identical to those shown in this panel, whether its worth contacting them I don't know...

That’s a more recent version of the control panel that was fitted to our Duetto. I might have known Paul would have some information about the matter. I was thinking of looking for a picture of the older panel but I havnt mastered sending pictures yet. Hopefully between us that might help.

We have a similar dual-function gauge & switch on our 2002 Pollensa but it's not circular:
