    I use and have used several battery maintenance module from C.A.K. Tanks.. £27 and a ten minute fit

    BUT !

    I would suggest you give them a ring cos they are often out of stock as they are so bloody popular !! ( 01926 854271 )

    yes a link across the terminals of thesplit charge relay will work it should contain a low amp fuse to blow if you accidently start the van with the link in place which would be detrimental to the leisure battery
