get yourself another leisure battery the same as you have now and use either for the main battery and other for electrics.

you'll have to wire in a split charge set up or a battery 1-2 or both switch.

Do NOT use a 1-2-both switch. Look at the wiring diagram on my website (see sig) for a better system.
Thanks Paul im going to order the bits from the links on your page, the on off combine switch and a split charge diode,been reading up on it for while.Do u know if it will be straight foward on a honda 75 four?i have read about voltage sensed charging and having to wire in a relay to get it charging not sure if my engine will need that?
Thanks Lee
