    Looking good morgs, I like the Galaxy roof lining, looks cool, did you make the rear cover for the leisure battery? Always good to get the little ones involved, my boy helped me do all the insulation plus other bits and bobs, he's mad for doing jobs on the van, especially undoing or screwing up things

    Thanks mate. The roof lining is just a vinyl wrap on pre cut boards off eBay.
    The box was made yes, my brother made that for me and I just carpeted it.

    My little un has already planned a day of working on the van this Saturday so Iím
    Hoping to get most of it done then. And then to connect the batteries up and see what works and doesnít

    Great work , just so you know, and for other members too, leisure batteries do need to be vented, because when their been charged they can let off gasses, which can be harmful, and also explosive if allowed to build up in a area where gases can't escape, on the battery their are little holes on each side at the top of the battery, you can get a special pipe that fits into the holes to then be able to vent the gases out through the floor, I bunged up one side of the battery gas outlet and used one pipe on the other to vent the gases through my floor,

    Come rain or shine I'm out in mine!!

    Thanks for the info. I have wondered about venting the battery and if it’s really needed. I havnt seen the holes you mention on my battery. I thought I could make a hole in the floor and pipe out of there but it would do absolutely nothing as soon as I open the drivers or rear sliding door that would be far more ventilation. The battery is not in a sealed box or anything, it’s just held in place under the seat by a bracket.

    Hi morgs I'm not an expert on this issue , it's just what ,I got told of a guy I know who services caravans and campervans, your best off asking Google, theirs all sorts on their about venting batteries, and theirs all sorts of different batteries, ( and opinions on venting) my leisure batteries are brand new , so maybe they only just started doing the hole vent thing, maybe worth doing some homework on it, sure someone on here will know the answer ,

    The battery needs to be vented if it’s being kept in the van , post a pic up of your battery .

    Thanks both. This is my battery

    I canít see what drilling a hole with a pipe from under my seat would do differently to just driving with a window down or opening the door once a day. Obviously I want to do it right and donít want to sound like Iím not listening to advice, it just seems a rather pointless thing to do as, as Iíve said so much more gasses would escape by opening a door.
