    So, I thought Id have a look at the connectors under the apron and the earth before it got dark - guess what? 10 minutes of cleaning/scraping and everything now appears to work fine. All I can say is thanks everyone.

    Now, back to the Quad....
    As the saying goes, many hands make light(s) work! Glad you sorted it. Peter.

    Not to rub it in , with fiberglas cars ally caravans in fact most auto electric problems check the earth return first. Use a jumper lead from the battery earth to the iffy component, then work back. With caravans especially lighting faults are usually earth faults. Sometimes it is easier to put in a permanent earth return wire rather than fid a hidden corroded conection.
