hI Penguin Thank you for your reply. Firstly the battery charger is not charging the starter battery, it starts when switched on and when interior lights are turned on it speeds up but seeing that there is another charger attached to the leisure battery I assume the Sargent one is naff. Also when the lights are turned on, both batteries ( starter and leisure ) show discharge. I assume this is because the charging roles have been reversed in that the leisure battery is now charging the starter battery and there is no gizmo between them to stop the starter battery from discharging when leisure power is used. What I would like to do is replace the metal fusebox with a plastic one to separate the fuses add a new motorhome battery charger and a new power supply unit but hopefully keep the control panel, whether this is possible I dont know but would be prepared to buy a complete rewire set which is not that expensive but would need guidance on the best control system to have and maybe how to wire it in, as getting it done by a company is prohibitive. Wouldn't want another Sargent.
