SPLIT CHARGE WITH FUSEBOX AND "USERS"

 After a number of requests for an "overall wiring circuit" I decided it was about time I included one on here, save me sending it out every time. On this system the aux battery feeds a 6 way fusebox, easily available from several sources [Just Kampers do a very good one] which, as can be seen then supplies the users, including the stereo system so that this can be used on site without running the main battery down. I have shown it with one twin tube and one single tube flourescent lamp and with 2 cigarette lighter sockets for using with other appliances.  I have shown the circuit with a seperate relay on the fridge system which will automatically switch the fridge supply off when the engine is not running (fridges use a lot of power and can drain a battery down in a few hours) this could be replaced by a switch if you so desired.                                                   The diagram is a good basic start system which can be modified by you to suit your own needs, this is why I've shown where the 12v supply from a ZIG unit would be connected if fitted.  The 2 inline fuses - A - must be fitted as close to the battery terminals as possible to protect against any possible short circuits from causing any damage.
