Newcomer with 3 Berlingos
#1
Hi there. Just signed in to this forum. I have recently bought 3 Berlingos - one for my wife, one for my daughter and finally one for myself. Just come back from the UK to Denmark. Drove nonstop from Wiltshire to Copenhagen, 18 hours without any problems whatsoever. 2007 1.6 16 v Berlingo. The only offputting thing are the switched 12 volt sockets in the console. My fridge stops every time I turn off the engine, and the milk goes sour. Have to find a wire that is not switched..30 Amp.
Any solutions to the problem.

If you have the Modutop then the sockets in the overhead compartments on either side stay on all the time I believe :-). I've used them to charge a phone, but a fridge might be pushing it....

A fridge, will flatten your battery in under 4 hours, be careful you don't end up having to push or jumpstart it !

A mains/12v fridge is the best solution, I've been able to come up with for my travels.

Hi there... I have solved the problem by running a wire straight from the battery  through a hole in the carbody. The fridge is a "clever" compressor type that switches itself off before running the battery flat. Works fine. 
Had to replace a brake hose to the rear discbrake, the type with both a metal and rubber liner, cost an arm and a leg.

Hi Mark, it's a Waeco fridge, quite expensive though, but it can also be used as a freezer as it goes down to minus 20 C.
Alas.... Now I have a serious with my brake system. I have just put new calipers on the rear brakes, and now the brake pedal just floors without much resistence. I thought it was the master brake cylinder, so I put a new on. Bloody expensive, but that didn't solve the problem. I have been fixing cars now for over 40 years, but this is new to me. Can anybody come up with solutions ? PLEASE, I'm pretty desperate.
P.S. it's my daughters car, and she is rather poor....

Thanks for the update, that sounds like a proper fridge / freezer !

Re the brakes, I'm sorry you seem to of covered everything I can think of, hopefully someone will be able to offer more assistance.

Good luck with it.

Waeco cr-50 is what we use in campers, but I think you need to check the specs, the fridge shuts off at 10.4v which won't save your battery at all, it's designed to not permanently kill your leisure battery by dropping it below approx 11v with no load
