Cant remember the name of the battery but its an 85 amp hour leasure thing with a green splodge to tell you whats going on with the charge level. (Might add this stayed green throughout todays little episode)

Sounds like the battery could be quite new then, I am not sure whether leisure batterys require running in like mbile phone batteries (for example). By this I mean some batteries require a certain amount of charging and discharging before they work and hold their charge to full efficiency.

Sounds to me like a classic case of bad connections !!!!, check and clean/tighten these before you do anything else ..... the fact that you tried to jump it , and it didnt improve situation, this would indicate conections to me
