    Is it possible to fit a 3rd leisure battery in my autotrail scout
    I have been supplied with three brand new 105 numax leisure batteries I have connected two which replaced the previous two .
    Could the third battery be connected in parallel or do I need to connect it to its own separate wiring

    magic, if you have the space just connect in parallel, hope you have some serious solar panels to keep them up to scratch.

    forget your solar panel, see rogers thread:Rofl1:

    But yep Rogers right, if you really feel you need it then hook it up in paralel, me I would sell it and buy a small generator for those special times:Wink:

    I do not have any solar panels could never justify the expense forgot to mention I have a Sargent 325 psu would this be able to cope with running three batteries

    whilst solar panels (in this country) cannot put serious amounts of amps in the battery bank they will keep your expensive batteries topped up all the while they are not in use. Any charger will cope as the three batteries will appear as one and will equalise to the lowest capacity battery.
