    Changing a Leisure Battery (Advice)

    Hi, I am sorry if this is a daft question and I have done a forum search to see if it's been answered before but I couldn't find anything that answers my (probably daft) question. I have had a T6 Camper for 3 years and the leisure battery is basically totally dead now and not holding a charge...

My question is would this be OK for my needs for the odd overnight...

    Powering a camper from a power pack without a leisure battery?

    I’ve only recently bought a Transporter and am now considering the power side of things. I like the look of portable power packs and am wondering if these can be a true leisure battery replacement. Onboard they seem to have many options with regards to outputs, 12V DC, 230V AC and USB A/C. I’ll...

    Leisure electrics sense check

    Hi All, I intended to throw in a Clayton LPS for the electrics but I'm now leaning towards having separate components that can be individually purchased and upgraded, which will definitely help with the upfront cost!
