Can anyone tell me how I can put in a switch in my dash to switch the stereo from running from the main battery to the leisure battery for when I'm parked up? I have a tidy split charge system if that makes any difference for wiring up...

That seems like a banging idea but I think I'd like to be Able to switch between the 2 so I can let the leisure bat charge up as I'm going....

Any other ideas?

Hey mate, I fitted a 3 way toggle switch in the dash for the same reason, allows me to switch between the main battery and leisure depending on whether I'm driving anywhere. It has a middle position that cuts off power to the stereo altogether, as I found it had a reasonable current drain that would flatten the battery if left on. Pretty easy to do, just need to wire each battery to either side, then the stereo positive in the middle. It's possible switch from one battery to the other without the unit switching off (if you're quick!)
