  1. Hi Sam,

    we would say leave the leisure battery in but charge it up every now and again or leave it on trickle charge over winter, particularly if you’re frost prptection function relies on it.

    Also 20*C seems very high, usually frost protection thermostats kick in when the temperature drops below around 4*C, simply to prevent pipes etc freezing.

    is it worth taking the liesure battery out as i have a frost protection thermostat fitted in my van which turns on a heater below 20 degrees celcius

  3. We would recommend speaking to your motorhome manufacturer regarding the battery as each model will be slightly different.

    With regards to not taxing the motorhome make sure you get a SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification), otherwise you can be fined for not having the vehicle taxed.

    When the motorhome is parked outside the house over the winter is it best to remove the battries or to occasionally start the engine? the motorhome has no tax during this period.
