Sorry, it is wrong.Searched for and cannot find the answer to my question.
6.1 Ocean, what happens if you run the Lesuire batteries to empty ?
Are they both AGM, so they are gel right? Or wrong?
If you run them to empty, can you recharge them with no issues?
Can you add link please.
What is the key to the colours?
The van makes it very clear to you that it’s plugged in, both dash message and a loud audible warning! We also back this up with a high tech gizmo - hand written note on an old envelope on the drivers seat.My main concern about plugging the Cali in on a regular basis is that at some time I would probably drive off with it still plugged in. On my EV it wouldn’t let you do that of course but I presume that the Cali would.
Yes, VW seem to show 50% soc as 0% 'battery'. The two main problems with deep discharge are:You think there’s a ‘reserve tank’ for such accidents?
On our 22 Ocean, the main and leisure batteries supplied by the factory are absolutely identical.I was surprised that my leisure battery had gone down to 38% without even using it for a few weeks. That battery has a different chemistry to the main car battery. It is a deep discharge type and so can be drained and recover. The main starter battery cannot. In the light of this observation I am going to plug the car into the mains more often to charge it. Those batteries are expensive.
