    split charge relay burnt out, jammed open or disconnected.

    Should be under the bonnet near the battery, along with the fridge relay.
    Both will probably be 30amps.

    If you find them then swap them over and see if it charges then.
    If it is faulty, when swapped the fridge wont work when engine running.

    My fridge relay stopped working half way through France.
    Swapped them over and had (reasonably) cold beer again.
    Tapped the other relay a few times then it started working again.

    Interesting this.. Do you have a Sargent control panel by any chance ?

    I have been messing with one today and really do not like the way they handle two batteries ..
    They seem to be completely splitting the charge feed.. As Sargent will not supply a decent wiring diagram I have no choice but to rip in to it and see how they have done it myself
