Hello All, I am looking at installing voltage monitor/gauge for the main and aux battery similar to the one that Engel sell. Not looking for the cut out ability just plain simple Volt meter. Any suggestions -what if anything are others using?

Thanks in advance.

Jaycar sell a nice combined digital thermometer/voltmeter for under $40. www.jaycar.com.au Mine works fine and its backlit.

I also have a multimeter with a cigarette plug that gives you a 2 decimal point reading.

Mark.dont know about the Engel setup, I use an old yet very accurate volt meter from 1 of my old B.M.W. m/cycles with a simple system of cutout switches to monitor main/aux/trailer batts,, $ wise cost nil, apart from 1 saturday afternoon and a ctn of " pick 1" beer or bottle of scotch.
