    I recently fitted two new leisure batteries after the old Elecsols died. On doing a bit of research I found this article http://www.smartgauge.co.uk/batt_con.html its a longish read but some useful info.
    Sorry if this has been posted before
    PS still waiting to hear from Jim regarding forum sponsorship

    Not seen that before. Good bit of information though very few MHs have that many batteries.

    One big omission, why did he not show a fuse, just to emphasise the need.

    It has (a long time ago), but it bears repeating. While the product was developed for narrowboats & is currently marketed to the marine & emergency vehicle market (& is probably overkill for the average motorhome), there is a lot of useful information on that site for anyone who is interested in 12v electrical systems & battery technology.
