    I have just purchased a campervan. Am I right in assuming that I need an electrical hook up to power my internal sockets and to pump water to my sink?

      You do need electrical hook up to work the sockets. Our water pump runs off the 12 volt leisure battery. I would imagine yours will be the same.

    will a flat and useless leisure battery also flatten the vehicle battery, as this is one possible reason. Prior to this the leisure battery was quickly reducing in power very quickly I am trying to find the reason by means of deduction. what would your favourite reason be for this happening. Recently I stupidly hooked up for 24 hours without switching the mains power on, would this cause both batteries to go completely flat?.

      The engine battery should be separate from the leisure side. I had a few things connected to the engine battery, like the stereo. This can flatten a battery if you are using it and thinking (like I did) that it’s wired to the leisure battery. Both batteries going flat in 24 hours would suggest a different problem. You must have something drawing current. I would switch off the leisure side and see if the batteries go flat and then re-introduce each circuit back into the system one at a time until you find the one causing the problem. I would do this by taking a photo of the fuse box and then reintroduce them one at a time, every 24 hours making sure the batteries are holding their charge.

        I dont use one myself but know that people do. Not sure of the set up though.
        You may need to be connected to an electrical hook up which would mean you can go to most campsites.
