    Hello, I've recently solved issues I'd outlined in a previous post with a EHU and leisure battery charger not working as expected. Replacing/adding missing fuses solved the issue, and whilst I'm a little unsure why the fuses were missing in the first place, everything now seems to be working...

    Hi All, I had a bloke over to check over the electrics on our T5 today and he's confirmed that our leisure battery is dead and that we need a new one. He also seems to think there was never a split charge system fitted to the van... (Might explain why the battery died). The bloke is coming...

    I currently have both captains seats on swivels (Sportscraft), and I thought why not add a leisure battery under the drivers. Turns out I have the swivel with the nut on the bottom rather than the top, so I think I will have clearance issues with trying to put a leisure battery there. I...

    Hello. First time poster here so be kind. Does anyone know if you can use a 4gauge tinned ofc power wire as the main power lead going from your starter battery to your leisure battery via a split charger?

    Hey guys, I'm looking at leisure batteries. There's heaps of options and ways of fitting them so I feel a little swamped. Lets see your Battery set up, where have you placed it, what would you have done different, if you vented and how you vented? See if someone out there can inspire me to...

    Hi all, apologies if this has been covered before - I couldn't find it anywhere on here. I'm planning to run a double-DIN head unit solely from a leisure battery, and naturally would like the reversing camera to come on when I engage reverse. In the (admittedly rare) situation where I might...

    Just got a complete professional leisure rewire done to my 2010 T5. I see the CTEK charging unit has a "conditioning" mode and just want to check that I can connect to mains via the hookup and leave it running overnight on the conditioning mode, or is there a specific time this needs to run...

    Hello, I'm hoping one of you lovely helpful folk can advise me. I think my leisure battery has boiled over. There was a nasty smell, described by members of my family like "eggs" and "burning", coming from inside the van, pretty sure from the leisure battery, which is inside the front seat...
