Under one of the bench seats in a '95 Exec, but your layout is different, so probably not helpful.

EDIT:

No, wait, I found an Excelsior layout, it looks the same as ours but bigger - so - maybe under the driver's side bench seat in the forward locker compartment.

In ours there are two circular panels, which swivel around a single screw, behind the locker door - the charger is screwed to the floor behind them.

Hi Busby

From memory the charger was under the cooker or sink unit, have you tried removing the low level drawer under the cooker to gain access behind it ?, I recall it was a lying on your stomach using a torch job. My Excelsior was a 1999 model so possibly a different layout, it was a great vehicle I still regret parting with it probably the best motorhome I've owned certainly my favourite.

Cheers John up!

Hiya - if you need to ask a new question then (to avoid diverting attention from this thread's original purpose) forum etiquette says that you should start a new thread of your own.

If by "run" you mean "drive about" then the answer is "no" - the leisure battery charger only operates on 240V mains, so it won't be working while you're driving. However, your van should be equipped with a split charge relay, so the battery should be charging from the alternator when you're driving anyway. You shouldn't need to worry about turning that feature on or off - it should operate automatically, all the time you are driving.

If I recall  from the days we had an excelsior the charger was under the fridge. When I removed the cover and looked I found a mouse had built a nest on top of the charger which presumably had caused the unit to overheat and die. Can't remember actual figures but I do remember that the cost of the new unit was huge.
