Steve3201,... Can you provide me the link for the 10 converter that you cancelled. I thought you had said you got it for a good price.

Steve3201,....Yes it was the 10AMP converter I'm looking for. I know I will never need even all of that. Hope you remember where you got it and how much.

It was the same co. I never did get it as it was out of stock at the time, so I went with the bigger one. (I'm glad I did)

Quick note: I put a 10 amp fuse on my lights and they worked fine. (so 10 amps should be enough for lights only) I also tried a 5 amp fuse and it blew in about 10 minutes. I'm running 37.5 watt head lamps, not the 55 watt ones that came with the light kit. (I blew those up) The rear LED lights were not connected at the time!

Here is a link to a 20 amp unit . . . can't vouch for quality, but price is right . . . I am thinking of getting one of these because it has a "trigger" wire to turn it on when needed and off when not needed . . .

My 06 came right off a golf course but it was still wired such that all I had to do was plug into the harness behind the dash, install the switch, and plug into the blue wire that was already dangling off the 4th battery, and then make the connection from there to the wiring area in the middle of the battery bay. Plugs for tail lights were already there behind the body, just had to drill the recommended holes.

Only issues I had were: 1 -trying to get the new front bumper assembly to line up properly with the holes. Mine weren't far off - just needed a little muscle persuasion to get lined up enough. 2 - the rear lights wouldn't stay stuck to the body. They'd get hot in the sun and would start to come loose. Replaced what came on them with some professional grade double stick automotive tape and haven't had any problems since.

I've since installed an extra 12v battery and rewired my lights and accessories to that.

Erict, I'm certainly not the expert, but if you use the positive off of another battery, won't you be increasing voltage by 12v per battery? In other words, go to the third battery, wind up with 24 volts, 2nd battery - 36, etc? Unless you also rewire your ground to the same battery you are running positive off of.
Where did u put the 12volt battery ?

I was looking at that one too. It doesn't look particularly water-resistant which concerned me if one were to place it near the batteries. In browsing for alternatives I noticed something mentioned regarding the Servicemate line of DC-DC converters: The warranty is voided on several of their models if they are connected to vehicles with regenerative braking. Two of their non-isolated models have built-in spike filters and they evidently are OK with regen. Without Scottyb's digital meter (to be remedied shortly), I wonder how high the voltage might go if one were to 'brake' downhill with freshly charged batteries and if that might be a problem with some of the smaller/cheaper converters?

I'm somewhat leaning towards the SM2412-15 because of the spike filter, soft start, and embedding in epoxy to make it waterproof. It has a trigger wire. 15 amps continuous rating; for those of us with a pair of headlights and no interest in radios etc. that seems like enough.

Do you think regen puts in more amps than the charger? When regen kicks in, I don't even notice my meter changing, so it can't be that much. I would stay clear of any converter that can't handle regen.
