When I check the levels on the van battery and leisure battery....this I what I get....leisure is one light from full and van one is usually at the lowest level and solid red. I've put it on trickle/condition and now the van battery light is flashing red. Is the battery goosed?

What is the actual voltage of the van battery?

What model of Sargent power supply system do you have (I can see what control panel you have but don't know what power supply controller you have).

I've no idea what the actual voltage is. This is the user manual for the Sargent

Of course, you'll already have checked, but I have to ask: have you checked Fuse 9?

If the van still starts, I'd be prepared to bet that the control panel is not showing the vehicle battery voltage correctly, but the only way you'll know for sure is to have the leisure battery tested. Do Halfords still do a battery test for free? It's a while since I last bought a battery there. Otherwise a cheap cigar lighter socket voltmeter should be less than a fiver on Ebay.

I haven't checked fuse 9...which one is that? No idea about Halfords. I'll see about a voltage tester 😁

I would not leave it in there! drive around and the loose fuse will move around. only a matter of time for the blade to short something out and that could be an expensive repair.
