    Sterling BB1230 not powering

    Hi, I've just realised the Sterling BB1320 battery charger in my van is not powered up. Does anyone have any troubleshooting steps I can follow? Which fuses to check etc? I am a complete noob when it comes to this. Picture of the power unit and battery charger attached.

    Hi all. Looking to help a friend where it looks like the leisure battery is probably about broke. It is 5 years old. Battery to battery looks like it is working.

    Right. I’ve been putting this off for a while but as it now affects my Dometic fridge and we’re looking to go on a trip to Europe this summer I need to tackle this.

    T6.1 Mains Hook Up Not Charging Battery

    Hi All, I'm new to campervans and have had a T6.1 for about a year. I used it a lot last summer with no issues. However I have noticed that the leisure battery is no longer charging from the mains hook up. I have checked the cable and also used another but no change. I also checked the fuses on...

    Leisure-battery charger is noisy

    Hey, a camper conversion company put this leisure battery and charger into my t6 but it’s like some epic super boat battery charger and this little thing has an epic fan. I used to have a t4 and never heard a peep from my leisure battery charging box. Does anyone want to swap with me? You may...

    Swapping out a VSR for a B2B Charger for dummies?

    When I had my T6 converted, the chap put in a Durite VSR, which I think has led to both the starter battery and leisure battery dying, which is pretty annoying. I'm not great with electrics but have realised that VSRs aren't suitable for T6s and so I was wondering how straightforward it would be...

    Sterling B2B earthing

    Hi all. Fitting a sterling b2b charger and the manual states both the aux battery and b2b charger should be seperately earthed directly back to the starter battery (not via the chassis). In my case the aux battery and charger are both at back of the van so would mean running two separate earths...

    Victron Orion straight swap for Sterling charger?

    My Sterling BB1230 appears to be 'buggered'. I had been thinking of replacing it with a Victron unit at some point so that's now moved to the top of the list. The unit has previously worked and indications suggest the wiring is okay, so I'm wondering if I can lift out the Sterling and do a...

    Solar Panel Values / Sterling Charger doubts [RESOLVED]

    Last week I had a 160W flexible panel fitted to the van with a Victron 100/20 Smart Solar Charger and I've just been looking at a weeks history on the Victron App. It's a wet cloudy October so far and I'm in south Central Scotland so not expecting to see 160W worth of power but just wondering if...
