    Question Conqueror Conquest 12V power system

    Hi All

    I am now the proud owner of a Conqueror Conquest trailer, its a 2004 model and I must say I am impressed with the awesome condition its in.

    However the trailer does not have a 12V power system, I would like to find out from the more experienced campers out there which 12V charger should I look at, I am not going solar with it, I just want 12V for the fridge so it stays cool if I overnight somewhere on my way to a camping site.

    Any recommendations or advice would be appreaciated.

    Budget? NL battery box with a BH plug on the towbar would be easiest..
    IFS is like a swambo, soft, sexy and expensive!

    Apparently I need to make the airplane noises like mommy does when I try to spoon feed you the info..

    I need a charger that can charge the battery from 220V, the charge from car is already in place.

    I need something that will also stop charging once the battery is full.

    This is also something I have been contemplating about.

    From my perspective, there are two options here:

    1. Power provided by car (ie dual battery system feeding power to trailer);
    2. Dedicated system for trailer (either built-in or mobile battery box).

    Both have up/downsides to them.

    Car provided power:

    - Relatively inexpensive (NL DiY kit is R2000)
    - Automatic charging while driving
    - Works great if fridge is mounted in back of car
    - Risk of running out of power when stationary for long
    - Camp setup limitations (ie vehicle and trailer needs to be close)

    Dedicated trailer system:

    - More comprehensive system allowing for different types of input (AC/Solar/Battery)
    - Automatically detect/switch to strongest input
    - Charging solution built-in
    - Can connect to vehicle to charge while driving
    - More expensive solution (ie DHcP approx R5,000 excl battery and solar)
    - Does require some technical knowledge unless installed by professional

    I'm leaning towards a DHcP system built-in the nose cone of trailer and mounting all connectors (like caravan plug and lights) to outside of trailer. Though the system is more expensive, it provides a much longer term and flexible solution.

    If all else fails, a NL battery box does the trick, but you would need a Ctek device to charge/condition it properly.
