Hi all, on the road down converting my shuttle to day van and was looking for some lighting advice. Was thinking about running my rear lights and sockets off the leisure battery (under the drivers with diesel heater) and replacing the bulbs to LEDs.
With there being so many lights and sockets...
Should a leisure battery and gubbins under a passenger seat be secured?
Having some work done, so first time exposed since conversion, and electrician not impressed with what he has found.
Have asked for photos.
Quick question, I have checked the existing battery in my camper and it looks like a standard battery and not a leisure battery. I have added another battery to it for extra life, should these be vented or can standard batteries be sealed and therefore no vent req?
(Camper king conversion and...
Hi, Inspired by @Deaky build post, I was planning on installing a Victron IP65 Smart charger next to the Starter Battery and a 2nd one to charge the Leisure batter (110AH AGM). I've discovered the CTEK D250SE will still charge the leisure battery as long as the volts on the starter battery are...
Hi, I’d be grateful for some advice please.
My husband used to deal with all the technical stuff when we had a motorhome, but he passed away suddenly in 2019 and I’m mustering up the courage to embark on some solo travel in a T6.1 which is shortly to be converted.
Basically, in between trips my...
Well which one?
I need it to be fully automatic, so when I plug in the hook up that’s it, I don’t want to have it on display or have to rummage it in cupboard to to turn the thing on or to the right settings.
All suggestions are welcome, I’m not having much luck in my search.
Anyone have experience of this battery?

I recently wired an aftermarket stereo and power amp (nothing huge) to the OEM leisure battery, in the case of the stereo to stop it power cycling on stop-start. The devices all work fine but the battery doesn't seem to be charging, I'm pretty sure all the wiring has gone back correctly...
hoping someone in the know could help me here.
I have a leisure battery under my drivers seat that has power cables coming from the starter battery running through a Victron b2b charger for charging whilst I driving.
I also have electric hook up with the mains going to a consumer unit...
Does anyone have any experience of the above? Looking to get a 100ah for my camper van , I have a ctek 20 amp dc-dc charger and also a victron 15amp charger . Can you charge the battery at these currents straight out the box ? Or is it maximum of 10amps ?
Also does the fact it doesn’t have over...
Has anyone fitted a optima yellow top battery under a single passenger seat, would like to use it but it will have to be laying down.

Any advice welcome
Im looking to change my leisure batteries on T6 calif 2016. (I have don't check what model are installed currently)
Do I need to code them into vcds ?
Can I upgrade to 100ah for exemple without risk for battery charger?
Some advices ?
I saw only one battery information into vcds so...
Only had our camper since July. Needed to get to leisure battery to add a meter to check charge %. And noticed that although the battery is behind a fixed lower cupboard (accessed via screws) it’s not fixed down and can slide on the floor. Is this normal for a conversion company to do this...
The wiring to my leisure battery is starting to look like spaghetti junction. It's awkward to access and sooner or later I'm going to be removing and replacing connections.
I've been looking at these Battery Terminal Clamp
I'm a bit concerned that they seem designed wrongly, upside down if you...
Main battery is completely flat, I am perplexed as I have a ctek and a solar panel so how has it run flat? I’m going to try jump start it tomorrow. Set up is 140 solar with Victron MPPT15/75 a ctek 250se and a agm leisure battery. I thought the starter battery would be charged first. Any ideas...
Hi - some basic questions from a new member about a leisure battery please.
We’re thinking of having a leisure battery installed as we will be wild camping only without the ability to hook up to mains power.
We’re getting increasingly confused by what the company who is going to be installing...
Hi after reading lots on here i had the 150w panel and victron smart solar mppt 75/15 installed
After a weekend away and thinking the battery was fully charged, it appears to be draining really quick, it seems to be constantly in bulk and charges to a decent level but drops to a really low level...
I’m seeing both of these batteries for £159.99. Obviously the 130Ah sounds better in terms of battery capacity, but the 110A Leoch Xtreme battery seems to be what loads of you on the forum have.
As far as I can tell, the ability to start the van from the leisure battery is the only advantage...
