The Van

Split charging.

As requested by Tim, some more details on the split charge system in use in my van.

A simple drawing of the system can be seen in the picture below.As the starter battery and leisure batteries are quite close I have used 16 mm2 welder cable and the thinner ones used between the relays etc are 1mm2 thick cables.A ring smartcom and a 100 amp relay and two 60amp midi fuses plus a blade fuse holder.Along with assorted ring terminals and blade terminals make up the system.

The system seems to be working ok , but only the reversing camera/ monitor are using power at the moment.
