Welcome to the forum.

Have you checked your leisure battery to ensure it is healthy? A duff leisure battery could be your problem. I would check it first before doing anything else.

Is there a switch on the control panel to select which battery is charging ?

Drew’s answer is fundamentally important as, if there is a dud cell, eg if the battery is old, or has been discharged completely, then it maybe beyond recovery.

Sorry, but welcome to MHF, we are happy to try to help, but it maybe a question of suggestion, trial, report back findings, new suggestion etc., until an answer can be found.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

SHOULD the control panel flash when the batteries are charging? I'm not aware of that.

‘nor am I, but individual makes do different things, I wonder if the handbook offers any advice on that ?

Our Swift Kontiki does not flash and does not have a switch, it does it automatically.
