Have owned a Stanton from new for three years. The vehicle battery loses charge slowly and leaving the management system on so that the photovoltaic panel can prevent / reduce the loss does not work, so I have to keep trickle charging the battery. The Auto sleepers handbook recommends switching off the vehicle battery if putting the van into storage and refers you to the Mercedes handbook. The electrics attached to the top of the accelerator pedal bear no resemblance to the pictures in the handbook. Anyone got any ideas?

The MB chassis sourced by AS do not have the battery disconnect option (E30) by the accelerator pedal. Any disconnect must be done at the battery under the passenger footwell.

E30 shown on page 111 of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

You can check your build record to see if E30 was ordered. Put your VIN into [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to get the full as ordered build record.

When parking up for storage, make sure the interior light is switch off, ie doesn't operate on door opening, and that the radio is positively switched off, not just by key withdrawal. These will help minimise battery draw down when stored.

I was upset to find that my solar panel on my 2015 Nuevo was only 30 watts. I don't think that is worth the effort of fitting so I have added another 120Watt panel (and another leisure battery) and everything is fine.

Thanks for this. Accessing the battery to disconnect is a pain. Might fit a disconnect switch but will certainly follow your advice.
