    I'm lost! Some split chargers are less then £10, and the wires are as small as my speaker wire. Whilst others are £150 and as large as a tissue box. As a layman to this subject, I read the descriptions and they all seem similar. I've trawlled the subject on here, and its confused me even...

The battery will be placed somewhere around the drivers side rear wheel arch & the diode will be placed...

    Sorry to bother you all again. Before i wire the Eberspacher i want to fit a second battery with a split charge to run it and the other domestics. Where is the best place to fit it and will a second battery fit next to the main engine one under the cover? Any pics would be appreciated. Thanks...

    OK I've used a system for years using a smart relay that senses the voltage of the main battery and charges the leisure battery when appropriate, and separates the two to stop the car battery discharging. When I first installed the system in a car years ago, I found that when the leisure batt...

    Is there anyone who supplies battery trays enabling the placing of 2 batteries in the front. There was someone on the old forum that had them but I never received a reply to my enquiry.

    How many Ah battery have you used? All I need is for a compressor fridge, lights and Eberspacher, no need for amps and the like. Can I get away with a battery of less than 95Ah? No sites we almost always use a hook-up but at shows there is often up to three nights on the battery alone. Your...

    Hey, I've after some advice about installing the electrics in the back of my van. Firstly, I'm installing a leisure battery, on split charge, under one of the seats. I know it can be done, but does anything need modifying, and can it go under the passenger seat? What is the best type of...
