Re: Leisure or starter battery

Thanks phinw.
I haven't measured anything yet but I am placing the battery under the rear seats, not the passenger seat. Think i have more room but still need to keep it relatively low.

Thanks
Steve

Re: Leisure or starter battery

Thanks for the reply.
It will be hooked up to the starter battery so in theory should never discharge fully.
I am fitting it under the rear seats so plenty of room.
Will have a look at the battery you recommend.
Thanks

Re: 12/240v cool box recommendation

We have a 3 way Dometic Combicool RC 1700. Boought 8 years ago and still works very well.
Will go 30 degrees below ambient IIRC.

Fantastic bit of kit. Cold beers on a campsite = happy me!!

Airtop 2000 blows fuses

Afternoon, Hope someone can help. My Airtop 2000 diesel version has now decide to blow fuses. Not the main 25amp near the black control box but my 15 amp fuse near the leisure battery.

Re: Dometic combicool rc 1700

I too have the above fridge, brilliant piece of kit. When I use the fridge on gas, it is always in the connecting part of the awning to camper so plenty of ventilation.

If you want to save yourself a lot of time, get yourself a second hand blower motor casing and prepare this beforehand.
