TJM IBS, pirahna 12" battery tray, Supercharge Allrounder 105 a/h 760cca battery
in cab controller with voltage levels
Cost $1083 installed with rear sockets
5 year warranty because they install it, 2 year without

Definately worth the extra for finger tip control

Redarc but with twin voltage sensors.
Thinking about swaping it out for a large solar regulator though...

Been using Redarc's for 7 years, and never had a problem. We took a spare Redarc with us on our recent journey across Oz for 10 mths just incase it **** itself, ( but didn't) I'm not an auto elec, myself, but the Redarc is much easier to replace, than a full electronic version of something similar i think.

I have two redarc isolators under the bonnet of our's. One for the aux batt and the other for the camper both running through resetable circuit breakers. Wired it all up myself. Been in there now for over a year and still going so must of done something right.

Y'all
what is the consensus on Aux batteries for dual setup. have installed the redarc isolator and ARB tray. What size are the ARB trays??? i assume they fit the N70 size battery. And what battery do you recommend for running fridge and lights for 2 days (max) at a time. i like the Supercharge branded ALLROUNDER with 760 CCA and 105 a/h but for $285 sounds like a lot. i do want to have CCA power and as large amp hour as possible but like most of us at a more modest price??? any suggestions for CCA / a/h mix??

I have a GSL Electronis Duel Battery system, they are on the net, cheaper than the ones listed & they make & produce most of the ones above. A good unit.

recently changed to a sidewinder dc-dc charger. Much happier. Not as fast to charge as the redarc but a lot better charge

i got a projecta unit in mine and well probably the most simple thing to wire up ever. just a case of 2 big cables and an earth. can also jumpstart with the push of a button. currently using an exide deep cycle but after the second one has died in a couple of months supercharge alrounder here i come.
also using a arb tray but imo what a piece of junk. its just so big and bulky it makes anything else almost impossible to fit haha.
