Advice please,

California: My leisure batteries are not holding charge and the display is showing a 200mA drain with everything turned off.

Two questions:

The batteries are 6 years old, are they beyond holding a charge?

Where is the fuse panel for auxiliary equipment (fridge, heater etc) so I can isolate individual loads?

Many thanks

I would disconnect and/or take them out of the van and put them on a trickle charge; test them independently to see if they are holding a charge.. they may have reached the end of their life :*

I think that 6 years is quite a long time for leisure batteries. Also, leaving the control panel (above the windscreen on my 08 California) does cause a drain of aound 0.2 amps even when nothing else on. I usually switch my panel off when van not in use.

Thanks for the above guys, I'll charge them up, switch off control panel and check with an ammeter in circuit. That should give me a good pointer.T:
