Advice required please. my 2011 nuevo/lancashire is on mains hook up whilst on my driveway, went out toady to start it up and it's flat, (on charge at moment). The van has a sergent 328 fitted. I assumed that while I was on hook up the cab battery was being charged, is that not the case or should I connect my trickle charger, thanks for any help, cheers roger

Glad you found an answer but no replies 24 mins after you posted is not unusual.
Anyway, don’t you know that all of us all old codgers are taking our afternoon nap at this time  smile!

I don't know which other thread you mean but yes - by default, the mains charger in the Sargent EC328 is set up to charge the leisure battery - though by default the solar (if you have it) power should be shared between the two batteries.

I find that on my Celex (non-A/S) the vehicle battery discharges much quicker than the leisure battery, so when I put mine on hookup I always manually switch it so that it is charging the vehicle battery.

Power can  be diverted from the leisure  battery to engine  battery  via the 328 control unit .
