    Just took my motorhome leisure battery back to discover leisure.
    The motorhome was bought new in November 2008.
    The battery was a 110ah, fault was that it was not holding its charge.
    I was told by the sales assistant that the battery they would swap it for is a 95AH.
    'Due to the new european legislation the 95AH replaces the 110Ah.'
    This sounded like a load of garbage. has anyone else heard about this or are they just trying to get rid of a load of 95Ah batteries?
    Any advice gratefully recieved.

    Thing is their website shows they do a 105AH and a 113AH, fitted the 95Ah and there are gaps at the sides, for a bigger battery.
    My blood is starting to boil, £34k van and they mess you around over a battery.
