Default Dual Battery Kit

Well I pulled the trigger today and picked up my dual battery kit from Sunshine Coast based Australian Direct.
After a good deal of paralyalis by analysis, I chose the KICKASS Complete Dual Battery System comprising a battery box, complete with a Projecta 25A DC DC charger, a range of outlets and and wiring.(https://www.australiandirect.com.au/...PDCDCBATCOMKIT).

I went for this arrangement rather than an under bonnet install based on my experience with the NT Pajero which I think due to heat would destroy the Aux about every 2 years.

The kit seems really well built, cables are solid I also bought the optional metal battery tray so that I can properly anchor it in and prevent it becoming a missile in the event of an accident.

The kit goes in this week, the plan is:
  • mount it between the LH rear seat back and the fridge slide
  • run the supplied single cable from the start battery inside the LH chaissis rail into a cargo area Anderson splitter, with one to the DC DC charger/Aux battery, the other for the towbar for caravan connection
  • pull the DC DC charger ignition feed from one of the cabin fuse box spare slots (23 I think)

I'll post an install summary when finished.

Made up a dual battery system for the Paj. Sport last week. Bought trays seem a little larger than the space. Used $5 worth of 1.6mm steel plate cut and flanged up edges, to fit behind the starting battery. Available space was just enough for a Exide Extreme 650 CCA sealed battery.
Had to make a mounting plate for the charging electrics. Used a VSR100 to provide the charge off the starting battery +ve. At the same time ran the caravan supplies, Batt Charge, Fridge power to the tow bar off the VSR100 auxiliary terminal via resettable circuit breakers.
Fitted a switch to allow the two batteries to parallel.

Hey Greg, how did you go with your install? Keen to see the results.

Hi B,

Have a look at the Paj Sport thread ‘Wiring for dual battery and fridge, page 2 I think. I posted a full write up with pictures. It’s Woking really well, very happy.

Greg
