Does anyone know of the availability of an adjustable low voltage protection device that cuts the 12v supply when the battery reaches a pre-set (or fixed) level? Engel have a 10.5v and an 11.5v battery cutout for about $100. Are there any others out there that can handle the high amperage needed by chescolds to make them work efficiently? Thanks!

Yep, have used one of these for the last couple of years, works well. Can adjust the cutout voltage via a variable resistor. Be aware though, that over rough roads, the variable resistor setting can change, so once you have it adjusted to the setting you require, put a dob of silicone on it to stop it moving.

Hmmm orange is more gender and sexual preference neutral.

Why I stick with clear - nobody can accuse me of anything.
