Which ever battery is selected on the control panel will supply the TV power.

By default it's the leisure battery unless you have selected vehicle battery on your EC328 / EC500.

The plug in socket is only 12 volt off the leisure battery, the tv works on 12 or 230 in which case a socket when connected to ehu.

Do you know, I never really thought about this. 

If I’m not on EHU, do I need to select the leisure battery on the EC51 panel to ensure that the TV and the lights etc runs off that battery?

You would think I know but I’m usually on EHU so it hasn’t mattered.

This thread is most interesting. 

I had naively assumed that both cigarette sockets in the habitation area were supplied by the leisure battery only. I didn't realize that I had a choice of battery via the EC 328. So thanks for that fact, Ploughlin.

I knew that I could chose which battery to charge via that panel when connected to mains - but I didn't realize that I could also chose which battery to discharge (eg. Watching TV) via that EC328 battery button.   Not that I'd ever wish to discharge the vehicle battery in preference to the leisure one. 

On a related matter, I believe that the 2 dashboard sockets, and the internal floor-level rear door light, are supplied by the vehicle battery.

They are on my MB based van, including the step operation via the EM50 unit.

Starter battery  uses the two on the dash,cig lighter and 12 volt socket next to it,the leisure does the ones for TV etc.
