Question Hi
My OEM battery has died - new batery time. Just ordered an Optima Red and Yellow top from Devon 4x4 (on special offer at mo).

I now need to work out the electrics - yellow top will run a fridge at shows the red top will do starting etc.

Has anone got a twin set up on their 50th - if so got any pointers please - relay or diode ? Any details drawings would be great - email me if you like on simon@longroyd.com.

Finally does anyone know the amp hour of the original battery and the ampage output of the alternator.

Cheers Simon

Simon,

Hi you are only a few miles from me in Halifax. Smile

I think alternator on mine is an 100 amp alternator and I think it's the original fittment.

Hope to see you around.

Hi Simon,

There was a complete step-by-step article in the February Issue of LROI on installing a split charge system using red & yellow topped Optimas - in a 2003 Td5 XS... have you seen this?
If you want I could send it to you?

Otherwise try looking at

Cheers,
Adam.
