Hey everyone.

New to this forum, just need to test. Recently purchased an 07 Jayco Hawk and Ford Ranger. Will need some questions answered...particularly about a battery setup for the van.

Thanks guys, it's great to be wanted!

My Jayco Hawk has the standard transformer with battery connections. would it be safe to assume that I can hook up a battery to these terminals and what kind of lead acid battery would be best?

no these transformers usually only put out about 12.8 volts which it not high enough for a battery to charge properly,it should have a spec label on it and this will tell what voltage it puts out.
if you are not sure call jayco and check before hooking a battery up.
battery to use would be a sealed deep cycle 100a/h, set the vehicle up with a dual charge system through an anderson plug set up etc.

when hooked to car the battery output is the same as the car at 14.8v, and on 240v power supply the output voltage is 13.6v. Is this still not enough to charge a battery?

Cooks,

Ok now that you have seen how it works it would be best to start a new thread to ask your specific questions - if you start putting stuff in this thread the majority of readers will miss it. So may I suggest that you put your battery question above in a new thread and load a new thread for each of your future questions.

Have a good one.
David

your typing is coming in a bit fuzzy in Canberra.

Can you hit the keys a bit harder?

Bob,
The "fuzzy" effect on your screen is probably caused by the hot 'political' air in that part of the country, it's clear here in WA :-)
