    Where can I purchase a leisure battery which actually fits under the passenger seat? All the ones I seem to locate are too high!! I'm sure I'm not the first to have this problem, any advice warmly welcomed.

    Is there anyone who supplies battery trays enabling the placing of 2 batteries in the front. There was someone on the old forum that had them but I never received a reply to my enquiry.
