Hi
Can anyone recommend a good auto electrician who can wire in my second battery. I have mounted it, wired the cabling to the rear etc however I would like someone to wire the Redarc solenoid and connect to the main battery, also supply the required cabling to do this.
I live on the Gold Coast however can travel to south Brisbane ish area if needed.
Thanks

its pretty easy to do yourself if your keen.
but otherwise we use burleigh heads auto electrical at the end of christine ave thru work and have always found good service and pricing. heap of older blokes who work there and they no their stuff.

Thanks for the info Ben

Yeah, I probably could give it a go. Might ask a few questions if you know the answers.

The manual says I need 4B&S cable 19mm2, where can I get this from the cost? Whitworths is the only place I know off around $10 per m.

Also, what tool do I need to terminate the ends?

And where can I purchase 2 x 100 AMP fuses from on the GC?

Thanks

just about any auto place should be able to sell the cables, including the terminals. they are just ordinary crimp terminals on the ends. as for fuses again most auto places will have them or be able to get them or jacar sell some pretty big fuses so try them.
but i dont have my dual batt wires fused at all. as i run a winch thru them id blow em to easy. not really saying this is right or wrong but its how mine is. i just put some of that black split wrap tubing over all of it to stop any dramas like it rubbing or anything. its been like that for 18 months now with no dramas at all.

Thansk Ben
I have picked up some parts over the weekend and will begin to wire over the next few days. Also purchased a few items from ebay, (Maxi fuse) ..

I located an battery store that will crimp the connectors in to my cable too.

Thanks for your help
