Great information , I am using a red arc 25 amp dcdc with a 100 watt solar panel, feeds An ago battery running a 60 litre engel.just general running around not travelling, does the job brilliantly.dcdc chargers the better way to go for sure, over smart relays.
Do I read right that the Ranox products are no longer available?

G'day Shane,

Thanks. Sounds like you have a good system. The best one is the one that works for you and you have it. The Redarc with the solar is a great product.

You read right - sadly the Ranox is not available, went off the market a few years ago. If you ever need another DC-DC and you see a second hand Ranox for sale, snap it up. They are a brilliant piece of kit and the guys who developed it still fix them if needed.

VSRs/smart relays do have their place, especially if you wish to charge your aux batteries direct from the alternator. Not in my setup, though, nor yours from the sound of it.

Cheers

Frank
