Assume you have a EC328 control panel. The battery default is to leisure battery, press with neon lit charge goes to vehicle battery, neon unlit to leisure battery. I don't understand your "switch off" and charges OK. What charges OK?

There are two fuses to leisure battery, fuse 1 on EC328 PSU and one at the battery. Have you checked them.

The power on/off button activates/deactivates the habitation area 12v electrics.  The battery select button selects either the leisure or vehicle battery to power the habitation 12v electrics, whichever battery is selected receives charge from the mains charger.  The solar controller in the EC328 is dual channel so both leisure and vehicle battery are charged all the time that the solar panel is able to harvest energy.

Do you know what space/water heating system and water pump type that you have?

Do you have a rotary switch on the top of the heater . LHS one controls the fan, clockwise is manual setting, Anti clockwise is auto.
