When I bought my Autosleeper Midas I was told that if I had a flat battery it would take charge out of the leisure battery and the van would start - well odoesn't just wondered if they were telling me porkies.

The leisure battery is not designed to start an engine.

Will do if you are stuck though. Put jump leads on and leave a few mins to allow some juice into the starter battery before hitting the start button.

Hi,
Possibly it has something like a battery master which maintains the charge in the vehicle battery by drawing from the leisure battery,
