    We've just bought our second MH. Sadly, our 1982 Beford Advantura started playing up within an hour of our deciding to drive to Hull and look at newer models!

    The Advantura had a simple Zig unit so you knew that the recreational battery could be charged either by the engine or the mains, depending on the position of the centre switch.

    We've just bought a 1991 Merc-based Auto Trail Scout Six; what does the switch marked "BATT MAIN / AUX" actually do please? I would think it would allow either the vehicle or the recereational battery to power the domestic circuits; if so, is the rec battery charged automatically from either the engine alternator or the mains?

    Many thanks
