    Hi all i am new to motorhoming and i would like some info on battery care.
    I an able to leave the MH on a mains hook up all the time, and i would like to know if this will overcharge the leisure battery?, as i have just fitted a new battery and i dont want to damage it by overcharging.

    Thanks in advance for any reply.:thumb:

    PS think this is a great site:Smile:

    After your battery is fully charged the charger should automatically revert to maintenance charge and should be ok to leave the mains on. I normally have mine connected and on charge for the couple of months we are at home. Although a couple of days before we are due to set off I switch the charger over to cab battery to make sure the van is going to start first time.
