  • Np Dual battery set up for CF80 Waeco

    Hi all, I have a Waeco 80Ltr fridge {only month old}I would like to know what the best set up is for this fridge, from the battery/solenoid/fuses/cable size & plug. This 80Ltr draws over 5.5 amps/per hour in 40 dec heat, {that info is from Waeco}

    I have my eye on a Redarc 100amp solenoid on ebay, what's your thoughts on that solenoid? Are their better solenoids out there??
    My intenions are to install this system myself, so the more info on this would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks all P.S {must keep beer cold}

    Nothing wrong with the Redarc, they are fairly good value. Cable size you should go as big as you can, the bigger the better until the cable size is physically to big to run easily. Just about every Waeco problem is cable or plug related
    As the CF80 draws a fair bit of current your going to need a good battery unless your driving every day. A 10 inch deep cycle under the bonnet is probably going to be too small, you'd need at least 100A to run in summer and preferably an AGM style to get a faster charge, the battery would be best mounted in the back somewhere if an AGM is used.

      Just fitted one myself seems to work fine and best of all made here in South OZ. Used size 6 B&S cable which matches nicely to the grey 50Amp Anderson plugs

      I bought mine and most of the fittings from www.sidewinder.com.au who does sell on Ebay good prices excellent delivery ie order Tuesday night delivered Thursday

      cheers Simon

        What did you guys use to mount your battery? Looking especially at NP.

              You can't fit an N70 battery without bending the aircon pipes, I had to bend mine a bit to stop it rubbing with the Pirahna 10 inch tray. Is this mentioned in the fitting instructions? I've got stuff off sidewinder before and his service is good and prices not too bad but $195 for a tray seems a bit high, the Pirahna one is only about $120

                Yippy Finally found time to set up my Dual battery system. TJM Stainless Steel Battery tray, I used a 10" Atlas 520 CCA for my start battery {on a battery tester it has over 700 CCA} & using the original 12" battery to power fridge,Redarc Isolator, 32 Gauge +- cable to fridge.

                Quoted $800 for someone else to do this for me {your kidding!!!}
                I did this for $485 & not even half a days effort.

                Thanks for everyone's Threads from the old & this new forum to help me put this Dual Battery system together

                  Good to hear you are all sorted. I got the sidewinder tray and was a bit underwhelmed at the quality. I had to do quite a bit of shimming to get it level. Have not put the isolator or battery in it yet. Work in progress.

                    Here's a vote for Sidewinder, I purchased a flyer and a 100 AH battery. The autoelectrician stuffed up and fitted an extra isolater, Derek diagnosed the fault via email and 24 hours later the problem was solved. Very impressed with the after sales service.

                      The tray looks like a universal one which can be bought from an auto parts supplier, supplied with brackets manufactured seperately to suit the NP. $195 certainly sounds very steep, the tray alone only costs about $30. I could be wrong though.

                        Has anyone got pics of where they mounted the redarc isolator?
                        I have my 105AH battery on the tray, just trying to find the best spot for the isolator.

                          Will post a pic tomorrow. The supplier for TJM trays welded an extra bit on for the Isolator. "Well that's what I used it for"

                            Redarc



                            Redarc is mounted behind the L.H. headlight.

                              Ah Sweet. That was one spot I was looking at. Did you earth it on its mounting bolt?
                              I also saw a spot down on the chassis rail that looked good.
