Re: fusible link on positive battery terminal

Hello JT and welcome to the forum, the answer to your question is to work out the power you are wanting and add a relay to draw power to the trailer!! are you sure you want to draw the power that way? if so, you are talking about drawing a lot of power from the Nav!! i would suggest an extra battery like a leisure battery to substain a regular draw for living appliances in a caravan ect!
Can you elaborate what you want?

Yes definitely install an auxillery battery or at the very least a power management box (avpm or somthing like that) to ensure the single battery has enough power to start....

Re: fusible link on positive battery terminal

Thanks for the welcome.
even if i installed a relay the relay requires still a feed from from the battery.Looking at 30amp to go the caravan.
does navara come out with an auxillary box or wiring harness that gets added to existing wiring harness near battery for extras?

Re: fusible link on positive battery terminal

I run 2 batteries on my sportrak, and that uses a 100 amp relay, with the relay triggered from the alternator, not the battery. The relay is hard wired to the battery, the relay Trigger is from one of the small wire that comes out the back of the laternator. It shows a positive charge via meter when the engine Is running.
Thus when the engine has started the relay opens and allows the alternator to charge both batteries. This was all easy to do and including heavy wire only cost 25. Also I fitted a battery isolator switch so I can jump stRt the truck from one battery to the other!
Sorry should have said that the long and the short of this is that a 30amp relay will melt in about 2 seconds when you whack 75 amps through it!

cheers

Re: fusible link on positive battery terminal

Should have said I then run all my auxilliary lights, power for fridge etc from the aux battery. The power socket in the back for the fridge
is operated off a standard 30 amp relay, that is ignition live.

cheers

Hi Rob,
Sounds good mate.was looking at a 2nd battery option,but that was going to be after the warranty ran out.they so friggin anal (pardon the language but no other word coud describe it) with any mods carried out that it can void warranty just like that. irrespective of how good the mod was done.

I think the warranty police would be more concerned when you did run it all from the standard battery. But that is just an opinion....
