Normally this lasts a couple of minutes and then starts its downward spiral to low amperage output before it self floats.. If in any doubt or your a little pedantic just dial the enerdrive back to a 30 amp output...its very selectable in battery type and amperage output...It can go to 50 amps if need be. I prefer to buy quality electronic gear after years of working with the gear and wanting a nice cold beer/drink upon arrival at a campsite.
tottally agree dicko1 i was tired of always having to check battery thats why i went with 1240d been running it last few months couple of hrs and she charged

totally agree...

i'm sure if money was no object, a fullriver would be a great choice.

but, for many (myself included), money is an object, so if i can get a decent, well regarded battery for nearly half the price of a fullriver, and it lasts me a bit more than half the expected life of a fullriver (and that's not guaranteed, by any stretch), than that's a win, IMO...

i got one of these a while ago and it hasn't missed a beat.

Money is nearly always a factor The biggest influence is whether you are getting what you paid for and whether it is value. The battery you selected is closer to 100amp hr than 130 (30kg per 100amps) That works out to about $28 per 10amp/hrs. Now a fullriver 120 amp hour is a genuine 120 amps and around $400..This is about $30 per 10 amps.


Dollar per amp the fullriver flogs the other brand and you know you will get many years out of the fullriver. I hate seeing people getting sucked in by bullshit advertising...dont worry..I,ve been sucked in before. Now I do a lot more homework before spending/wasting my dollars.

and that's the rub, isn't it...

i don't see it as wasting my $$$ or being sucked in by advertising, i see it as using the $$$ i have to get the best that i can.

everyone's situation is different... the OP and i are similarly aligned, by the looks... do what we can with what we have.

G'day Tinman,
I was having a look for a fuse that is on only when car is running, the rear wiper looks to be one of these.
Ill be using a fuse splitter/piggy back fuse holder from jaycar.
I can get the part number if you want to use one.
Cheers,
Andrew
