    I think I remember you mentioned you had an Romahome Outlook. The leisure battery is charging whilst you are driving and also when you are on electric hook up.

    Since you mention "car engine" I assume you are talking about a caravan. There are a variety of answers to this:-

    Only if the car is suitably equipped (wired, usually with a split-level relay ) can it charge the leisure battery and that is assuming (as is normally so these days) your leisure battery is connected to the appropriate tow-plug pin.
    If your van is equipped with a master control WITH CHARGER the battery will charge during hook-up. Otherwise you can charge with a trickle charger connected to the hook-up. But make sure there is ample ventilation to disperse battery gasses (Hydrogen can go bang!).


    EDIT! Please ignore this post. I have tried unsuccessfully to delete it. I have since read other posts of yours and I realise your interest is in a Romahome, not a caravan. I have no real first hand experience of motorhomes and I do not think of them as "cars".

    Sorry, Jim.

    What charges the leisure battery? The car engine, or hook-up?

    I think the leisure battery is charged while driving and when plugged into electric hook up. I expect someone else will be along soon to verify this.
