    Split Chargers - B2B & Relays: Which one - or Both?

    @SquirrellCook - think if I was going to do that on the MERC I would somehow get the cheap inverter to power the Victron Mains charger I have, this would need quite some cable run doing and logistics though as the Victron mains charger is in back of Van I suppose I could put a cheap inverter in...

    Have you got a link for that ? That's an interesting and clever idea. I would need a wiring diagram for that though I think.

    Split Chargers - B2B & Relays: Which one - or Both?

    Interesting, thanks for the input @wildebus, what you said about charging and the fact that on a standard VSR split charge system then the LB side would not charge fully despite engine being on a long time, as the alternator does not output a charging profile like the MPPT Solar charger I have...

    Split Chargers - B2B & Relays: Which one - or Both?

    What are the advantages of adding a B2B in the set-up ? So with your help and others I now have a charging set-up on Solar that works incorporating all batteries from a Victron non-BT 100/30 and Vehicle battery will only be charged when leisure side hits above 13.2V and vehicle is stationary...

    Best Place for BMV 712 when batteries are split front and rear ?

    Yes, well in the current set-up that would take a lot more re-wiring and re-cabling and not sure that I want to do that yet so may leave it as a Winter Job, it would be quite a faff I think. Getting the Negative of the Batteries to the BMV would be easy enough but the Loads would be a completely...

    Best Place for BMV 712 when batteries are split front and rear ?

    Do you mean, one place where all the negative's go - at the moment the rear is grounded to bodywork at rear The front is grounded to Bodywork at front So the rear and front cables to ground would need to go to one ground point i.e rear cables extended to reach front ground point or vice versa ...

    Sprinter Doors

    Interesting, on the Merc now the door strip is on the frame rather than on the door. Although saying that it has been resprayed in the past and strip would have been removed for that to be done

    Best Place for BMV 712 when batteries are split front and rear ?

    Having the batteries split in the Merc and more AH in rear to that in Front I am wondering where best to place the BMV ? The solar comes in at rear, most of the battery load will be from the rear? By missing front loads from being attached to the BMV then how skewed will the readings be I wonder...

    Yep will do that and also I bought some of this on EBAY https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Large-D-Type-Car-Door-Seal-Strip-Boot-Bonnet-Rubber-Edge-Trim-Roll-12X14mm/223608937318 Seems cheap enough but is it best to stick it to where the black rubber marks are from the seal that is sat on the frame...
