Hymer Batery

Surly if there had ever been a battery under the seat, there would be a pair of terminals, that connected it..

It would be strange for there not to be a habitation battery, maybe a previous owner took it out to save buying a new one, which would make him "daft like brush!"..

ray.
Maybe but he has left no sign of cabling or holes or ANYTHING

Think i will just use that space under the passengers seat and add a battery or two

Agreed but No . Virgin space with no entry holes for cables.

Yes under the font drivers seat. (LHD) I think I will just do a fresh install. Take out the passengers seat and put them there. Have a 3kw Victron in the compartment through the wall so that is handy. Have looked everywhere for the second battery or signs as to where it EVER was. Nothing..Thanks guys for your help.

Anything like that to investigate ?
Wel I found it... Burrowed down under the Bed and in front of the water tank and under a plywood sheet and found it.. May well be dead but at least it is there and solved. Manual was not use.

Well here is what I found .Can onlt assume they are well past being of any use as previous owner did not think it had any. Do those codes mean anything. Would be interesting to date them. Put two 120AH in there and they fit
