redarc

Hi everyone just passing on a bit of info, I have a 98 patrol and recently had a
redarc isolator installed (by a local auto lecky) in addition to the isolator I asked them to install cable to the rear fitted with a anderson plug for the batteries in the camper.Now when I hooked the camper up to the car, plugged in the batteries the fuel gauge in the car read empty. The reason being the earth was not to the battery as requested but to the chassis at the isolator end and the plug end.Upon further investigation the nissans have rubber fitted between the chassis and the body.All good now.Thought I would let you all know if anybody is doing the same thing.

I have used Redarc isolators in my last 3 vehicles and have helped install them in another 3 or 4 mates vehicles - I reckon they are great value for money. Wouldn't have put one in my 200 series if I thought they weren't reliable.

Cheers

Make sure you get a new one with the clear case, especially if you use your 4wd in colder climates. The cut out voltage is a little higher which preserves your main battery more. It came out about a year ago but there are probably some places with the old version in stock.

The one with the altered ratings was for the V8 models and is available from Derek on here for a good price (as usual)

Graham, are you refering to the change made for the 100 series V8 several years ago? If so that was for a lower cut in ( charge) voltage. The change I am referring to is much more recent and affects the cut out ( discharge) voltage this is better for any vehicle type wrt to discharging the main battery.
