Recently we fitted out a Toyota Hilux TRD with a custom under bonnet Dual Battery System and Electric Brake Controller
On this Toyota Hilux TRD Dual Battery System we installed:
- Redarc BCDC1225D Battery Charger
- RACQ 105ah Battery Charger
- Cigarette Socket
- Redarc TowPro Elite
- Grey Anderson Plug
- 12 Pin Plug
To start the under bonnet dual battery install, we fitted an RACQ 105ah AGM battery and fitted a battery tray and a hold-down clamp so it’s secured in place. Next, the technician installed the Redarc BCDC 1225D to charge the auxiliary battery.
In the tub of the vehicle, we installed a 12V cigarette socket and voltmeter so the customer can power their accessories and monitor their auxiliary battery levels.
We also installed a Redarc TowPro Elite so the customer can safely tow their new caravan. The Redarc TowPro Elite is our Electric Brake Controller of choice for safety, ease of use and peace of mind when towing. Find out why we recommend it here.
On the towbar of the vehicle, we installed a grey Anderson plug, via an isolator off the start battery. This allows the customer can charge the batteries in the caravan while towing. We also fitted a 12 pin plug with fridge wiring, so the customer can keep their fridge powered up while travelling.
