1960 Overlander Battery & Electrical

I still have the battery box under the front window. I found a deep cycle battery that would fit perfectly in this box. It is an expensive battery but I got tired of buying tractor battery, Many of them.
The battery is Deka Unigy
Model # 12AVR100ET
Warranty: 8 years.

This is a battery that is used in computer racks for UPS backups. Because it is so expensive I have made sure that I have bought the "charge wizard" from Progressive Dynamics, Inc. This unit plugs into the converter and performs the battery tender features.

John,

Great job on documenting the wiring -- there's always someone asking about original wiring.

Battery looks cool. Are you reinforcing the battery/box to handle the 75 lb weight?

Battery Box

The existing battery box has vertical supports underneath it. I placed a thin gasket material under and around the battery, about 4 to 6 inches wide. This strip allows me to grab the strip of material (at one end) and also have a strap on the 2 bolts (at the other end) to be able to lift it out of the box.

The space between my propane tanks and the front of the trailer do not allow a plastic battery box to be mounted on the tongue. It sure would have been easier to buy a normal deep cycle fishing battery.

thank you

Thanks for the help on the Overlander wiring.
Only problem is, it looks like our wiring is much different. Amazing what a year's difference can make!

I bought a wire "sounder" so I can tap out each of the trailer wires. I am now left with figuring out which wire goes from my battery box to the trailer brakes for power.

if you have any insight on that, I'd appreciate it.
thanks
kevin

Brake Wiring

I will see if I can get the information on the brake wiring. Still going to work every day, so it might not be until this weekend:-)
