I donīt have an alarm, donīt use the radio the leisure is switch orf so no USB plug lights so that narrows it down a bit.

I hope they will hold the charges overnight. Its now plugged in again for 24 hours I hope.

JanHank I have had to unplug the leclic for 2 hours this morning to allow the lady next door to get out of her gate and get in a car that takes her to some therapy, she is unable to walk far and the van was stopping a car getting to her gate.
After just over an hour I checked the level and they both read 12.6v so with another 24 hours I hope they will be OK.
The neighbour is back so I will drive back and reconnect.

dghr272 Just for you.......

JanHank I have great hope that all the batteries will be OK. the van can stay on charge until Saturday morning which will be a total of 2 1/2 days. After that I will move it because the grass lane I am parked on has gates into the cemetary where there could be a few people wanting to go this weekend, although they have two other entrances to choose from.
I checked the water levels on the leisures (they are transparent so easy to see without taking them out) and they are both full. The sun has also been out all morning so a little help there as well.

Terry, I miss your cartoons

dghr272 I've had the reluctant step issue, it was related to low charge level in the leisure batteries on my AT.
If you have two, one low or faulty battery can drag the second one down.
