Re: Blade Fuse Calculation for 12v Auxiliary System

Thanks gentlemen, I seem to have the correct layout with regards to where the fuses are installed. And thanks to you guys I am a little bit more calm regarding the fuses I have in-line. I just want to mention that what Tinus said regarding the LED light wires that melt but the fuse doesn't pop was s...

Re: Blade Fuse Calculation for 12v Auxiliary System

Great thanks Tinus Would you reccomend replacing all wires that are less than 6mm (6mm2 ?) off any device (chargers etc) with 6mm wires? I would rather that any device go kaput than the wires setting something alight. It will probably also be prudent to put a fuse in under my solar panels on the roo...

Re: Blade Fuse Calculation for 12v Auxiliary System

Thanks Peter, helpful as always. This is more-or-less what I had done. Although my concern is that our friends had their trickle charger directly connected to the aux battery - it is rated at giving max 4.9amps (it's from a brand I don't know). He had an 10Amp blade fuse in-line. The wires melted an...

Blade Fuse Calculation for 12v Auxiliary System

This is a repost from another thread, as I didn't really get an answer. I do think this is something rather important to get right. Hopefully it's helpful to all those who like to DIY. Camping with friends the other weekend, they suddenly had their vehicle pouring smoke out as we were relaxing under...

Re: Rear Dual battery

The idea behind the box is that I can leave it in the vehicle or remove and leave at a campsite with the fridge etc..... If remaining in the vehicle I have a solar input plug and 12V input or output in the back bumper which can plug into the box inside. Power Station top.jpg Inside is fairly basic ...

Re: Sand Ladders/Tracks/Trax

Have you looked at TRED pro ? R3400 at securetech. Pretty impressive recovery tracks those I don't think you can go wrong- they unfortunately can only be used from one side, which halves their lifespan. But you aren't going to use them every day. The one thing that these ladders do well that the ol...

Re: Sand Ladders/Tracks/Trax

Yes David I'm with you with regards to the grabbers - weirdly enough it's Jeeps that use them here. Just a disclaimer- the product the use does look a bit different. I don't have any firsthand experience though, so I'm staying open minded. But with the maxtrax (genuine) I have decent experience - wo...
