    Hi All,
    I have an Autotrail Apache 700SE and I just discovered that the leisure batteries are individually charged. There are two looms coming from the chassis and are individually wired to each battery. Why have they wired them this way? Usually there is a positive and a negative from the charger and the two batteries are wired in parallel with two bridging cables between both batteries.

    Just really inquisitive why Autotrail would do this - on the other end of these looms they must be joined at the charger or somewhere within the loom....... wouldn't they?

    Strange. :Blush:

    sounds the same as mine, the loom goes to one battey then theres a plug in conector to the second battery, the batteries are wired parallel not in series, if they were would that not make them 24volt? or have I got that wrong
