Hi Beachball, I think your van has the Nordelettronica power system and it would seem that it has done what they are known for,,,,,,malfunctioned.

I would just check to see if you do have the Nord system, and if so, give Paul or one of his team at Apuljack Engineering a call tomorrow.
Here is the info to contact them: http://www.apuljackengineering.co.uk/contact.html

Beachball has recently had a new control panel fitted and a new leisure battery.
It could be the battery charger.
If the leisure battery is flat the control panel won't work.

Yes it could be just that, or the battery is fine and the relay that is supposed to switch in has failed and has isolated the battery from the van, and stopped the connection with the charger.

Hi,
Circuit breakers only protect ac circuits not dc circuits.Check your fuses in particular the battery fuse (Usually rated at 20A and located near the battery box) dc circuits are protected by fuses might as well check them also.
To check your Nord thingy if you can put a voltmeter across the battery then switch on the nord unit - the battery voltage should go up,not a lot but it should go up
