    Can anyone who has a leisure battery under there seat tell me how it's secured please?
    It's a Ducato base vehicle if that makes any difference.

    On my previous PVC an on a Peugeot Boxer, it was held in with metal plates that gripped the bottom edge of the battery at each side

    I just bought a plastic battery box with a lid, screwed to the floor and battery is retained by the straps that are supplied with it.
