hi, im new here and also new to caravaning, i bought a wilks sterne de luxe(unsure of year or model as its all in german) its in good condition but as you'd expect needing a few jobs doing. the problem is that i cant figure out how the 12v electricity supply works, there is no sign of any housing or wiring to enable a battery to be fitted anywhere on the caravan at all. there is however next to the 230 v supply consummer unit/fuse box, a largeunit that i am assuming is some sort of 12 volt transformer/inverter. it has a 2 way on /off rocker switch and a red button(reset?) on it. is this the 12 v supply unit? if so does it work off the 230 supply, taking power and storing it till neeeded? or does it just convert 230 to 12 v ? if so then what runs the 12v supply independently of the 230 supply? this has me tearing my hair out and i need to find out how this works.please help. also if anyone has a handbook for this make of caravan (in english please) or knows where i could get one please let me know. thank you.
