    Total newbie to van life. With zero knowledge of electrics.
    Assistance required please.
    When you have ehu do you set the 12v switch on the zig unit to car battery or leisure battery? I have 5amps coming into the van but when I turn the lights on they are very dim. I am worried that if I turn the switch to car battery it will run the power down & I won’t be able to start the van. The reason I ask is that my leisure battery in knackered. I am trying to source a replacement, but without much success. Thanks in advance
