  1. Not sure yet, just waiting to hear back from them. £650 + VAT is a bit more than I'd like to pay, I have to say! And I suppose it'll be quite a bit more than that now 10 years later. I suppose we'd be shelling out a lot more on these types of problems if we lived in a house, or so we keep telling ourselves when things go wrong!!
  2. I have received an email back from Sterling. They have said: "I believe the issue is one of two things, both of which can be solved with a module replacement. How old is this combi? I believe the faults are either a)Module calibration error causing relay failure or b)An AC spike has damaged the AC board part of the module."

We live on a 60ft 2009 narrowboat in a marina, always connected to shoreline when moored. Problem: 230V power will suddenly cut out when connected to shoreline, regardless of time of day/temperature outside/what is running When power has gone off, lights (indicating battery on float charge/fast charge/inverter on) on inverter (Sterling Pro Combi S) not displaying Power can be t
