G'ay all,

About to leave for 4 or 5 months and noticed battery volts only 12.9/13.0 even though we have been on 240v power for the last couple of days.

Checked the battery charger and no LED lights on - ie no AC supply?? Checked power point supplying charger and it's OK? Now the sun is up the voltage is coming up with solar system working OK.

any thoughts appreciated

Check the fuse in the battery charger...
If that is OK, then check the leads coming to it, if that is OK, as in plugged in and switch turned on..

If that is OK, check the leads out of the charger, to the batteries. Check to see that a wire has not come loose off a terminal at the battery charger or in the battery box...

If that is OK, check to see what LED lights are on, on the charger, and call Bushtracker with year of van and model # on charger, and we will trouble shoot further. Usually it is one of the above, loose connection, cargo shifting knocking out the power or turning off the switch at the outlet, or something as silly as the circuit breaker off up in the Main Power box.... See how you go..
