Make them yourself or go to Hensley Battery and have some made up. It will save you some cash.

That monitor looks cool Christo
Thanks Marco, i had planned on having Hensley make them up.. The cable runs should be really short, as the batteries will sit side by side in my FJ40. I have been waiting for the 9A34M batteries to come in for 3 weeks ... hopefully they will arrive about the time the VSR does.

Two LED's. Drill 1/4" holes into a switch blank or any other area you choose and install the LED's. What you are looking at is the "black box".

Drill holes??!! What are you, some kind of caveman? Why don't you just tighten your hub nuts with channel locks, while you're at it, geez...


After all, this the direct manufacturing era.

pretty cool Nakman
The multi colored LED is a GREAT space saving idea for a dual battery monitor.... and being able to snap in something like that into an existing blank is awsome...

This particular setup is for the fj40, so i have to give some thought to LED placement...

How about using a rear heater switch from an 80.

Re-label it for batteries. Then put the two LEDs on the right and left sides of the switch windows. So now you have the LEDs for the monitor and a switch to control the dual batteries all in one?

Default Question on Dual Batterys

Hi

I own a conversion van and thinking a dual battery system may be nice. I think I understand what I need but wanted to clarify something.

I want to install a second battery that will power a inverter that will power a lcd tv, dvd player, charge a netbook or ipod, cell phone and such. The question I have is not really related to using the items when the van is off but when it is running.

Is there a issue to have these items running from the inverter connected to the 2nd battery as the van is driving down the highway. I am unclear on if there is a separation of where the power is coming from if the car is not turned off. And if that load will just get transferred to the alt and burn it up.
