    I have just come back from the weigh bridge, not good news:Sad:I'm 3450kg that's without food in the fridge or clothes in wardrobe or wife in the next seat. Have to lose weight from the van. Its an Auto cruise Wentworth (54).
    My question is this I have two big 110 amp leisure batteries wired in parallel. Is it ok just to take one away? will this cause any problems? only having one battery will save me about 28kgs, not enough I know, but a good start.

    Thanks for reading
    Jim

    Motorhomes run on 3 things IMO,gas, water, and batteries.
    You need all 3 for things to work,so get rid of some of the stuff you dont need.
    Bye the way,were your water and waste tanks full at the time.
    I have learned with my VW camper that if whatever is in there dosnt do at least 3 jobs,it dosnt get a ride.

    Blimey...another Eurovan overloaded before you get all your stuff in it :cry:

    Why oh why do manufacturers do it, there should be a law against it, probably is "Fit for purpose" springs to mind. :Eeek:

    Never had that problem with my RV though :Wink:
