Repeat post as I think I put it in the wrong place (apologies).
I too have a MY14 in need of an answer to what I think is a low charging rate (less than the cut-in voltage of 13.2 volts anyway).
I'm interested in what make/model of battery isolator you used Stuch to solve the problem. I too am working in uncharted territory as far as the 'experts' are concerned and don't think the expense of a DCDC charger is necessary. My needs are really to power the fridge in my caravan. Any trickle charge to the caravan battery would be a bonus.
I have found this which may be the answer:
Here's a question for those of you that have installed a power feed for their fridge/battery for their caravan.
My MY14 CRD 12 pin 20 amp caravan power socket doesn't work. (7 pin trailer lights ok)
The reason is relatively simple.
Redarc battery controller 'releases' the current at 13.2 volts.
The charging/alternator voltage of my jeep is 13.1 volts. Thus no power is released.
It is due to back to the installer but I'd like to know the best solution before hand.
All professionally done and very neat.
Power and isolator all installed in the battery compartment.
All hooked up direct to the battery.
I'm concerned if the 'solution' is to get an ignition feed from other parts of the car to run a relay which in turn then upsets any of the canbus system (out of my league at this point...).
Any help appreciated.
