    hi all
    back in march we bought a 2010 swift escape 686 which weve been all over europe with since and more than happy with .But a few weeks ago i went to collect it from where we store it and the main battery was dead-no problem -bought a new one and went away for a couple of nights
    Thought id nip and check it the other day -started on the button so left it running while doing something noticed both battery usage lights were flashing on the control panel but as soon as i switched the engine off they too went off and everything seems to work fine
    Is it just that i havent noticed them before(obviously when the engine is running im usually in the pilots seat) or is there a problem?
    i would appreciate it if any fellow escape owner could put me right on this,hopefully im just being a bit thick
    thanks in anticipation

    Have a Bessacarr but the systems are the same. Yes that's correct. With the engine running the flashing lights on the control panel indicate both cab and leisure batteries are charging.

    Hi I have a 2009 escape 664 that i bought new and had a lot of problems with the control panel and a flat leisure battery that dealer replaced it free just over a year old but out of warranty for the battery, they also fitted quick release battery terminals and all seemed ok but i found the control panel switched its self on when left and it seemed to be caused by condensation on the printed circuit board so after two replacement panels a lot of research and no help from Swift it seemed the Nordelettronica Italian company that Swift used had gone broke and they changed to a new system about 2010 so you may have the new panels in your van.I can survive on the road as it's in use all the time but disconnect the leisure battery in storage at home.
