Hi
question is how to connect 2. freezer on a tray box with slide on camper.
Standard: Slide on on tray ? Masterbattery powered 2. freezer.
Exception: without slide on ? 2. battery under bonnet has to power 2. freezer.
So the 2. freezer has two current inputs; from masterbattery and 2. carbattery.
How and with what part will this works?
Thanks in advance
Karl

I think the poster has English as a second or third language or no English and perhaps using an on-line translator and also using a foreign language keyboard. My guess is the "2." and perhaps the odd "?" characters are weird foreign characters "interpreted" by the EO forum software.

If you remove those it starts to make sense, allowing for poor English.

He's referred to "carbattery", so that is possibly the cranker. So "masterbattery" is possibly the second or house battery.

So I'll have a go at a translation:

"Hi
question is how to connect freezer on a tray box with slide on camper."

Perhaps the freezer (or perhaps fridge) is to be installed in a box on the tray of a truck/ute, but outside and independent of the slide-on camper. How do I connect it given the following two scenarios?

"Standard: Slide on on tray ? Masterbattery powered 2. freezer."

Normal situation the slide-on camper is on the vehicle tray and he wants the freezer (perhaps fridge) to be powered by the house battery.

"Exception: without slide on ? 2. battery under bonnet has to power 2. freezer."

When the slide-on camper is not present, he wants the crank battery to power the freezer (fridge).

"So the 2. freezer has two current inputs; from masterbattery and 2. carbattery."

So there needs to be a switchable or selectable power source for the fridge

"How and with what part will this works?"

How do I wire that up?

A common enough question often asked here.

OK Frank, I'll have a go at it..............

Karl, as I understand it you have two situations
1. To use your fridge in the tray of the vehicle.
2. To use the fridge inside the slide-on when mounted on the vehicle.

If you wire it as shown below then you have a socket in the tray into which you can plug the fridge and it is being powered by the vehicle battery.
Then when the camper is loaded, it plugs into the same socket in the tray and the fridge plugs into the socket inside the slide-on.
When the slide-on is loaded and connected its battery is charged by the vehicle alternator.
It is recommended to install an automatic isolator in the vehicle to protect the car battery from being over-discharged when the engine is not running. This is shown dotted -------.

If you believe that this is the sort of thing you want then we can offer more detail.
