We cannot access our leisure battery positive and negative to connect our 800w inverter required to charge an electric bike battery. The two leisure batteries are tight under the passenger seat. I want to connect somehow without removing drivers seat every time ( no way) . We need to get someone to do this safely for us so any suggestions where to take it or what to do. Can we take it to an auto electrician in order to get a connector fitted or does it have to be a leisure vehicle fitter. I know nothing about electronics sorry

This is my solution, a fly lead permanently connected.
Replaced clips with 30amp connectors ( 300 amp inverter)

Connect to the battery terminals once only. Fix the inverter to a convenient place and use the inverter on/off switch when required. Dead easy, any competent DIYer can do this. Use thick wires to connect the inverter.

If you are not doing it yourself I would say that any auto electrician could do it for you, if there was room I would be tempted to wire the inverter in with a 12v isolator and then just make the connection on the 240v side, otherwise as Manic has done with "Anderson connectors" but make sure the +ve side is suitably fused at the battery.
