    Fitting process was ok but fiddly. There were no instructions!

    The covers are slip-over neoprene with velcro fasteners, so it's like putting a wetsuit on your chairs. Essentially pull the pieces over and adjust by pulling any loose/incorrectly possitioned bits.

    It was fairly easy to tell which pieces fit onto which parts of the seat.

    I've spent the weekend starting the instal of my dual battery.

    Battery installed.
    I thought i would have the fusebox, etc here so would require the extra terminals, but the fuses on the other side now.


    Ran 3B&S cable along space of bottom door sill from front to rear


    3B&S cable out the rear


    I've still to complete (hopefully tonight/tomorrow morning):
    1. Front fuxebox for accessories
    2. connect VSR switch and battery monitor
    3. Fuses and power sockets in the rear.

    Finished off the electrical access points

    USB charger for phone holder and dual battery monitor on r/h dash seitches


    Replaced Traxide VSR switch with one from AoB on l/h dash switche panel. The switch backlight acts as the LED on the traxide switch.


    Additional USB charging in center console


    Anderson and USB charger in rear


    Happy how subtle everything looks. A little disappointed that all of the USB sockets have LED lights that stay on...

    Are those voltages on the monitor accurate?, they seem low for brand new batteries that is all.

    When i compared to a volt meter over the battery terminals they were within 0.1v. I should check again.

    They are low, probably because the car has been sitting undriven since the weekend but having it's electronics regularly played with.

    I'm 1 lug from completing and then i'll be let out for a decent drive and a battery recharge.

    Ahh, fair point.

    Can you post a shot of where you have the USI-160 Mounted?
    Also, how have you set-up the battery isolator button?, I didn't think you could dispense with the in-cab module...

    Rather than using the switch that came with the unit, i used an AoB one - see switch labeled Battery Isolator in the images above. It is in the switches on the left of the steering wheel. The switch backlight flashes as per the LED on the supplied switch.

    The photo is a little blurry - sorry.
    I decided to create a platform that would bolt on top of the fusebox lid and mount the USI-160, a curcuit breaker for the rear accessories, the Traxiide ABG-25 and the aux fusebox for cabin accessories. The aux fusebox has 2 +ve circuits, so one side is powered by the aux battery and has the fuse for the ABG-25 and volt meter, the other side is powerd by the ABG-25 and has the USB charging and already wired up for a UHF radio (pending)


    Behind and below the fuse holder is a bolt in a spare place on the chassis acting as a hub for the negative cables from the aux bat, main bar and rear accessories.

    Hi,

    have U tried to charge a Samsung tab s2 or equivalent on these ports? From experience with other USB ports if the voltage is not greater than 5.3v the Samsung tablet will not charge or take ages to charge.

    I have an S2 on the trip I'm on but have not used the port's for charging it. I'll report back in a week or so when we've tried to use it
