::b Switched some lights on in the garden (Testing for later) and .............nothing :roll:
Checked house stuff (Its 12v controlled) all ok this end.
Goes to shed (Where controls are) Nothing no indicator lights, no nothing, mains is on.
RCD had tripped, no problem switch it on, press, click, off it goes. Un-plug every thing, press, click off it goes :angryfire: so now I have to spend time finding out whats wrong :cb

At least the RCD is doing its job.

(Thanks for reading :salute: , I feel better already)

As big-all said having two problems made it a pain, not to mention having to take everything apart to find it. (Then there is all the putting it back together)

But at least it was not raining, but it was cold, and dark.

Slight update. I said earlier my Insulation resistance test meter was / has given up and i will order a new one, well, the new one has arrived. Not had chance to test it, yes its Chinese (But so was the other one allegedly) but this one was so cheap its worth taking a chance on.

That does not look like an Insulation test meter.
