Mines on top of the booster unit, little rocker switch.
But if not using the van switch your master switch of and that should sort it.

If it's the booster for a Status aerial, (in the wardrobe?) there's a small rocker switch on the top at the left. It's not obvious, so easily missed. It won't be draining much current, however, so don't worry too much about hat aspect. It took me ages to find it on our caravan (also made by Lunar) and were spooked by the unearthly glow in the wardrobe. Waiting for the aliens to emerge.

The fridge probably has a green switch/light and a red one.

Green will be mains
Red will be 12volt when towing using the 12S socket on the car.

The 12S socket wiring changed in 1998 so make sure your car and van are compatible either way.

Presumably it's the round status aerial with a spike on top although in 1991 many vans didn't have an aerial fitted. It may be an after market retro fit.

Hi as already said ,the wirings system for the fridge & battery charging was changed in 1998 so do make sure your car grey socket is compatable to the earlier caravan wiring system OR you may be condemmed to COLD Beer
