Hi All I’m thinking about adding a second leisure battery into the van but I don’t want to have to rip it all apart.
Currently I have a ctek 250 As the dc-dc charger and also doing solar all linked to a 110a battery under the passenger seat. I also have a victron charger on the 240v side if I’m...
So I've finally got started on my electrics install... the 200Ah lithium has gone in under the drivers seat...only just!
I've now removed the drinkers side seat to find quite a lot of stuff...
So my question is how much of this can disappear with the original VW 2nd battery?
Hi all, I’ve had a scan and nothing really hits the spot in the previous threads that I can see but apologies if it exists…
We got out van (2019 kombi Swb) at Xmas, it has OEM rear seat and fold out kombi nation bed behind.
It also has 230v hook up, 100 Ah leisure battery under the passenger...
Has anyone tried one of these under floor battery boxes from New Wave Custom Conversions;
I am considering using one to free up room in the van but I am concerned what would happen if I crossed a river?
Hello All. I've tried looking for stuff on this, but seem to be going round in circles. I have the current twin leisure battery setup in my van, which was in when i bought it.
I want to add 2 x 100W panels via a Victron 75/15 MPPT, as below.
My question is, what is the correct way to do this...

Hi guys, I’m new here, I have a motorhome but not a T6 but bear with me as this could be life saving for you! Yesterday I took my ALLPOWERS 288wh solar generator I bought in April last year and has worked perfectly out of the camper van to use in the garden with the kids to charge an iPad, (I...
New to the forum, hoping for a little bit of help with a 12v battery bank i'm planning on building.
My primary reason for buying a VW T6 was to go fishing in it, so i'm building some weird and wonderful bits to suit those needs, the latest bit of the build is to make a quick and easy 12v...
As per title, I think my leisure battery may be dead.
I've attached a battery monitor for the last few days and it looks like the battery charges from the solar panel during the day but then drops down to 12.3v overnight.
Nothing is running from the LB apart from the battery monitor...

Hi I have a ctek250sa and it currently charges from alternator and solar panel - I am looking to add a second battery to my system and was wondering is it as simple as connecting the leisure batteries in parallel?
Looking to connect an extra battery....in-line so I have longer time before I have to get battery charged while wild camping. See attached pics this is the one in the van at the moment but dont recognise the brand....any ideas? I the 85 AH version. Is it correct I have to have the same brand and...
After reading posts by @Dellmassive I decided to get a Quicklynks bluetooth battery monitor 2.
SO having installed it on the leisure battery I decided to have a look at what the App does.
A couple of tings have surprised me.
1. I did a charge test, and I'm now worried I might have a problem...
This may have been covered before, but we have just got a 2nd hand Bilbo's, the dealer had fitted an 80Ah leisure battery which only gave 1.5 days running (not the 3+ days as advertised)-so a visit to Battery Megastore Tewkesbury was in order to collect the Bilbo's spec Hankook 130Ah.
Anyone recommend a decent flexible solar panel? Thinking I need a 150w to keep fridge going with a 130amph battery.
Its going on a skyline roof so if anyone has images of fitting and cable entry to the van that would be good.
I have a new T6 transporter van that I am fitting out as a camper. In terms of adding a second battery for fridge ect, I know that I need to connect via a modern dc-dc charger like a Redarc. My question is what is the best way to connect to the main starter battery for charging the second...
I am in the process of planning my leisure battery, putting it under a seat with the dc-dc charger and a consumer unit.
Location being the main conundrum.
My thoughts are:
1. Under the passenger seat leaving the option of putting a heater under the drivers seat.
2. Under the drivers seat, in...
