Recently we fitted out a Toyota Landcruiser Workmate with a custom Dual Battery System
On this Toyota Landcruiser Workmate Dual Battery System we installed:
- 125Ah Enerdrive B-TEC Lithium Battery
- Enerdrive DC2DC 40+ Battery Charger
- Redarc TowPro Elite V3
- CTEK PRO15S 15A 240V Battery Charger
- 2x Great White LED 220mm Combo Driving Light
- Spotter LED Work Light
- H4 LED Headlight Globe Kit
- Anderson Plugs
- 12V Cigarette Sockets
- Dual USB
To start we installed the Great White driving lights, H4 LED headlights and Redarc TowPro Elite. Next, we drilled the hole in the roof to run the wires for power into the roof-top tent and work lights. An Anderson plug was installed so accessories can be connected on the inside of the tent. We custom made some brackets for the work lights and fitted them to the roof racks on the vehicle.
The next part of the install included installing the customer’s Projecta Inverter and run cables to the Enerdrive Lithium Battery. We installed a fuse box in the rear of the vehicle and wired in a 6-way touch switch panel for all the accessories (fridge, work lights etc.). Also on this panel was the 3x 12V cigarette sockets and dual USB socket.
The Enerdrive Lithium Battery, DC-DC Charger, 240V Ctek Charger were connected into the system and fused according to manufacturer’s requirements. The 2 chargers were then programmed to suit lithium and the whole system was tested to ensure everything was working properly.
The customer also purchased a solar blanket to stay powered up on the road, so we made an extension lead for them to use for solar input into their battery system.
