I have that one in my bus. Fits fine, charges and lasts well. Will run a propex for about 1 1/2 to 2 nights without needing to be recharged. Runs phones etc without any issues.
Had it just over a year.

Many thanks, its the only 100amp one I can find that I think will fit the tray, I did worry that they had the dimensions wrong in the Ad, will order one.

Although it pains me greatly, might have to order one of those as I don't order from Amazon but I can't find it listed anywhere else that doesn't end up back at Amazon!

Console yourself in the fact that it’s an independent company making use of Amazon to sell their own stuff Jim.

Amazon still get a payment for their services, so a purchase through them is accepting their business practices and treatment of their employees.

Hi, just out of interest, where do you have the battery and the gaz bottle for the heater?
What's best, a venting battery in the engine bay or a propex bottle?
I suppose if the heater is inside you still need to vent the floor?

Feedback on that SuperBatt Battery listed above.

We've had one fitted for the summer and we've come to the conclusion its not as good as the old battery that came out..... So will be refitting the old battery.

The old battery is this brand.

What’s the biggest dimensions for a leisure battery that will fit in the rear corner out of interest? I’ve seen some people turn the battery through 90º, not sure if that helps or not? Just wondering what the best/biggest A/h battery that will fit?

If you have a later bus, then you can turn the battery 90 degrees. That allows you to fit a 110-120 amp/hr version. Otherwise you're generally restricted to 90-100 amp/hr batteries.

If you have a walk through, watch out for the height of he battery.
