electric blinds

Post by janie » Tue Jan 29, 2013 5:10 pm

Hi,
Just a quick question if anyone can help me. My rear blinds are not connected to my leisure battery and I would like to add them to the (short) list of things that are. Can anyone tell me how to do this so that I can have a go myself and not pay a garage to do what I suspect is a simple enough job.

Thanks

Jane

undo the 2 screws that hold the fuse box in place, then pull the bottom of ther fusebox forward and the whole thing will pull forward so you can access the back, as you look at the fuse box, right of middle you'll find a thick red wire/black trace, that needs to be powered by your leisure battery, for blinds,lighter socket, all key turn auxs like stereo,mirrors etc to be powered by LB, quite simple but means your stereo memory, interior lights,cdl etc will still be powered from your main battery.
