    I have just noticed that where I thought the cab battery was on my Peugeot boxer i.e. under the drivers seat it isn't:Eeek: there seems to be a space for it but nothing there.

    Does anyone know if they are put elsewhere? I have the leisure battery under the dinette seat but that is the only battery i can see (of course it is dark so will look again in daylight)

    Surely it is not possible to only have one battery? is it? the panel shows both for charge purposes

    Confused??? Oh yes!!!

    If its the latest shape X250 type then its under the floor on the N/S,lift the floor mat and then you will see some nuts undo lift plate off and its all there.

    Toffs g,under the bonnet there is a positive terminal for jump starting etc.
    Saves alot of time and effort if you are aware of this.
    I helped someone who had a flat battery,lifted carpet,lifted cover,then realised all i had to do was put thier cable on live lug under bonnet:Doh: It is on right hand side by fusebox.

    Under the bonnet there is a postive lug sited in a plastic box with a flip up lid towards the front N/s of the bonnet also in front of that you will see a - ive lug/post this is marked.
    I use a trickle charger attached to these, as said can also be used for attaching jump start leads.
    I have also bought another trickle charger that I will connect to the battery under the floor that has an Ac/Dc adapter and plug connector so in future instead of opening the bonnent I will be able to connect in the Van when I am on hook up,I have a outside socket on the garage at home
