Can anyone(especially Jack. owners) tell me the output of the Alternator/Generator on the 2000 Jackaroo's. I have looked in my handbook and it is not to be found. I want to make sure that I can run two fridges while travelling as well as run a charge to 2 x 105DC batteries as well as the vehicle battery. The DC will already be fully charged.Jack at sleep

Not sure of alternator output but running 2 fridges will draw way less current than 2x100w spotlights, which your alternator could easily handle. If they're Engels they consume about 3.5 amps each when running. You alternator will probably produce atleast 60 amps. Can't see any problems.

Yeah thanks for that.. I hadn't thought of the spotlight side of things. As you say if the alternator can run those thirsty buggers it can surely run my set up. Fridges should pull about 2 x 3-4 amp I suppose.Jack at sleep

Do what I did..call into a battery specialist and ask for them to check your batteries (this is almost always a free service) whilst he is there ask him 'if he would mind' :-))) checking the output from the alt...usually you will get that for free too

If I recall correctly, it's something in the order of 90amps.
