We get plenty of questions from fans and followers asking us, what is the best beginner and/or starter modification to make to your four wheel drive? Starting to modify your car can be a bit daunting as there are so many different options and modifications to choose from. One of my favorite and first modifications I make to all my vehicles is a good dual battery set up.
DUAL BATTERY SYSTEM
A good dual battery system, in my opinion, should be one of the first things that you upgrade. Especially if you’re planning on doing long weekenders and even bigger touring trips.
A good dual battery system is an absolute must! I have chosen to use the Redarc Manager 30 to look after my dual battery setup. It will let you run all your 12volt applications and not have to worry about ice and an esky. This is seriously a game changer if you are camping or exploring for more than just a day.
The system allows you to:
- Changes an auxiliary battery from the vehicle while on the move
- Monitor battery levels and power usage
- Easily see remaining time left on the batteries charge based on the current output from connected systems.
- The power being generated from a solar panels.
- The time remaining to charge the battery.
The Manager 30 operates like 6 separate products all in one handy unit.
This is all easily visible from a simple display that I mounted above me in my overhead roof console. It seriously will change the way you camp, no more stressing about running out of battery power for your fridge and other appliances.
I have also combined the Redarc Manager 30 with a 2000-watt inverter allowing me to use 240v appliances (standard wall power points) and charge my devices, power a TV, coffee machine and so much more. For me the ability to charge all of our camera gear is essential, we no longer need to rely on taking a generator or stopping in to a town to charge our camera gear. My favorite thing is I have been able to run my coffee machine for a decent morning brew. This makes a world of difference when the closest town is 100km away and you need those creature comforts.
The invertor is not only slim line but looks the goods as well. Making it a stand out feature in any truck.
