    Leisure battery problem.

    Hello Ant.
    We've recently bought our first Romahome. It's a hytop Duo 2001 and she's a beauty. However, we're having a problem with the leisure battery. We charged it for over 24 hours but the control panel showed no power. We swiched it off and on again and it then showed three quarter power. We then switched it off again and it has shown no power since. We're taking it to our usual garage to get the leisure battery checked, but wondered if you had any idea as to what the problem may be. The battery and the relay were changed when we bought the van and it seemed to be fine.
    We bought the van from Broadlands in Norfolk who were really helpful at the time, but we live in Manchester and can't get back for them to check the issue.
    We'd be really grateful for any suggestions.
    Many thanks.

    Hi Donna.
    There are two things you can check assuming the battery itself is ok. Firstly you'll find two fuses in line on the wires coming from the batterys +ve terminal, they're inside two black sausage shaped fuse holders, push in the ends and twist to release the fuses. You're looking for nice bright metal ends to the fuses if they're dull and white-ish in colour or blown they'll need cleaning up to be bright again or replacing. Second, the switch on the panel may have a dry connection, switching it on and off several times may sort it but you'll probably have to take out the panel and check the connections to the switch.
    Normally the panel problems relate to the corrosion on the fuse near the battery.
    Hope this helps
