    Last week my leisure battery ran down on charge even though I was on EHU.
    It charges through the Solar panel but I was obviously using more than was being put in over a couple of days.
    On EHU everything else worked, sockets, fridge and microwave it wasn't until the 2nd evening until I realised that the leisure batteries were running down.
    Have a guy local who does work on motorhomes and caravans, he did the Hab checks on my old Hymer, and speaking to him we came to the conclusion that the charger had failed.
    The battery is showing fully charged now and everything is working ok as it's sunny.

    Question is -: where is it ?

    Pilote Galaxy 270, I have looked all over and cant find it, on the old hymer it was located under the drivers seat.
    Anybody got any ideas.

    Only thing I can suggest if no body comes up with a proper location is start tracing the thick wires back from the leisure battery until you find it

    Impossible to trace wiring it all goes into a covered loom.
    Cant see any switches i could have caught and checked every nook and cranny i can think of, thought it would be near to the battery, but seems not to be.
    Leisure battery showing fully charged so
    put it on hook up in the drive and switched on the 12v, put 3 lots of lights on at 15.20, went out after an hour and half and battery showing flat and lights barely lit so it would appear thaf the battery is knacked now.
    Got a guy coming in in friday to check it out.
