Default Battery charging

Started my van 4 days ago and the Battery didn't seem to well charged ,so I put it on hookup and switched the control panel to vehicle. This morning Ive found that the Battery is completely flat :I thought that it should have charged with the hookup connected. Any feedback most welcome. Chris

yes do make sure its switched on, mine has a switch in the wardrobe and SWMBO who has to have everything, accidentely switched it off (probly with the kitchen sink) resulting in flat battery and much scratching of heads
