title says it all packed the van up to set off to misterton and then come to start it NADA :Eeek: not even a ignition light :Eeek:-multi M reading a totally flat 4.2v :Eeek::Eeek:--Battery was perfectly good on Saturday after we installed a new radio -everything worked fine --Rang Paul to see if there was anything he could think off after fitting the radio and he says nope -I know nothings different because I saw him simply unplug old one and plug in the new one --somethings got to be wrong but for the moment I don't know what :Smile:
Battery on boost charge as I type but not holding much hope for it :Sad: but going to give it a chance because it's only a yr old :Smile: Taking jump leads just in case :winky:then if it does not hold a charge it's a new battery on Monday :Smile: Provided I get a jump start at Misterton

Not enough yet
Why not try removing the radio and see if the battery goes down then.
At least you can eliminate it either way. :thumb:

If you had a generator you could charge it on site. :Blush: ::bigsmile:

Good Luck with it Terry, so frustrating when you are ready for the off , is it your new van or the old one.

update --now back home and after tackling the 3 ft high weeds and 8 inch high grass on the lawn I decided to throw my multi meter onto the now old starter battery /cannot find multi meter so decided just to stick it on charge to see if it would have it :) as I picked up the battery I noticed it was bulging on one side so I decided to look inside and check fluid levels (y):eek::eek: empty --- no wonder it seemed to die quickly :D Now trying to think when I last checked it // may have been this time last yr :LOL: lesson learned and at least I get around a tenner off the scrappy (y) and I can refit my radio :D
