ok you have a duel battery set up?? are your batteries deep cycle?? i dont fully understand your wiring system. you charge your batteries direct from your alternator?guydewdney said:I have a set of 'leisure' batteries in the load area - charged by a split charger. Its to run a 2000 watt (240 volt remember over here) inverter to power lights / kettle etc.
Note! The alternator on the 2.5 diesel (may be the same on your 4 litres..) has three wires:-
battery input (to power the field coils)
B+ (live only when turning to kill the warning light)
NORMALLY you just use the b+ wire to power a relay to create a split charger - however it doesnt have the power to fire a relay... I had to use a 'smartcom' voltage sensing relay to make it work. I only found this out after cutting the wires :roll:
The inverter sits nicely under the single rear seat base, and the cables go nicely through the vent holes in the back to the bed where the batteries are.
