    If leisure batteries dead does this mean that the electricity in the van will not work even if plugged into mins?

    generally speaking the charger is also a power supply, up to its max output amperage, so even without a battery you will have 12v power on hookup.

    if you leave the battery connected it will try to recharge and take some available power from the 12v system so if it really is dead for sure i would remove the earth terminal.
