Evening all
Well.......I am in need of advise. In the process of getting all the bits and pieces for dual battery (actually third) in our LC 100TD. Got the Redarc and want to get the wires into the cargo area to run a 100 a/hr gel batt. Followed all the good advice and got 10m of red and black 6 B&S wire, so good so far. Now what am I to to regarding fuses. Obviously Maxi fuses are not maxi enough, so that leaves circuit breakers I guess. But which ones???? Now, Jaycar have some 70A & 100A manual reset fancy ones (approx $25) are they the go? Keep getting conflicting advice from various sales people, so please HELP.

Thank you

I have fitted a 100ah gel cell in the back of my patrol. The kit, from Derek, came with a 50 amp auto circuit breaker to be fitted as near the main battery as possible. For what it is worth, this works for me. Cheers Eric.

Remember it is the wires your are trying to protect, the wattage passing through the wires will be far less than the staorage capacity of the battery in the rear. The fuse will just stop the wires from burning if there is a short or the load is too great, also you will need fuses at both ends of the positive wires are the storage battery can be a source of power needing to be cut off if an overload occurs.
