Yet again flat battery. Ctek 250 not charging van battery, leisure charged ok can l swap solar feed to van battery whilst stood. The lesuire are fully charged. Then just swap back over when using van. Not driving as much. Option is to fit switch ,option2 is to fit fused links and pull fuse .l can isolate the lesuire battery as they have fused switch .so isolate lesuire batter and insert a fuse a matter of seconds,Thanks

What a pain! I have just fitted a solar panel to trickle charge our van battery as there seems a parasitic drain affecting it. Thought we had isolated the problem but charge dropping approx 0.1 daily. Hope you sort it.

Just fit a switch and a 200amp relay, you can the also use the leisure batts as a back up to the starter batt, that what i have for an emergency, use battery cable and not light wiring.
