Re: new rig
It is a much better colour than in the brochure.
What engine? CRD?

Re: new rig
Hey Melly, love the colour!! Can you show us some pics of the brake controller mounted? Also, did you fit an anderson plug? if so, where did you run the wiring?

Any tips or traps you found when wiring up?

I read somewhere (can't find it now) that the alternator is pretty smart and cuts out making it hard to charge an auxillary battery once the main battery comes up to a certain voltage. If you have wired it up to charge can you confirm it is charging?
