    I leave to the 240 connected to the MH when not in use, could this be detrimental to the life of the batteries, pretty much been on all winter although I do us e the MH every other wkend

    Not if you have an intelligent charger which reduces/stops charge when the batteries are full. otherwise with an ordinary charger you will cook them. I expect you would know by now if that were the case. Tp prove they are ok why not unplug the electricity for a day or two to see if they are holding charge.

    Good advice, no info on the type of charger. Only that I can see the charge light on when I Look in the belly lockers.. Seems to hold charge when we are away. Thank you, I'll try that

    Take a picture of the charger if you can, someone on here may be able to tell you what it is.
