Hi, we are currently away with our T5 camper, driving along and suddenly all this smoke erupts from under the drivers seat! We’ve got a baby with us so we stopped immediately and got him out before trying to locate the problem which turned out to be the leisure battery- the wires are completely fried and part of the battery itself has melted.! No idea what could have caused this? AnywAy, we’ve got the van to a campsite and we’ve pitched up here until we can get the van to a garage because we’ve been told it isn’t safe to drive the van. The leisure battery is off and out of the van (currently being used as a tent weight) but the wires (what’s left of them) are still connected to the main battery/split charge? We’ve covered the wires with duct tape as we didn’t have any insulation tape, and now waiting for a garage to be open on Monday- how dangerous would it be to drive the van the way it is? We need food so at some point we’ve got to move the van and get to a shop and also get it to the garage.., I am concerned obviously because of having our baby with us, the dangers of driving it.? Or does anyone know how to disconnect the leisure battery leads from the main battery..? -save us a garage trip altogether..?
