    As a non electrickery person if I disconnect the leisure battery and take it out to keep on trickle charge over winter but then run the engine will this cause a fuse to blow?

    No, providing you insulate the leisure batteries live lead when you disconnect it.

    pop a thick plastic bag over the battery clamp and tape/tie it on.

    Sorry to go off topic!

    Your Welcome is well winterised, why are you laying it up?

    The UK and Europe are just wonderful in Winter. You have the majesty of the snow-covered peaks of the Alps and the Highlands, the golden Autumn forests of Germany, the European Christmas markets, bolder, inquisitive hungry wildlife visiting your pitch, the list goes on!
    All with cheaper pitch fees, fewer campers and total peace!

    You don't know what you are missing!!!!!!!!:thumb:

    Take the -ve (negitive) terminal off first when diconnecting the battery, and when reconnecting do the reverse. :Cool: and as mentioned above put insulation on the terminal when loose. :thumb:

    I understand what you are saying and I am sure we will once we feel more confident. Thanks for the response though.
