    Default Trailblazer wiring for trailer

    Has anybody added wiring to charge a 2nd battery or the battery in your trailer?

    How did you connect to the battery?

    Thinking of adding it to my trailblazer just incase.

    Spelling mistake. Should be trailblazer. How can I fix it?

    Hi Bogaards,

    I did my Brad Harisson connection at Safari 4x4 Cape Town. The plug fits right next to normal towbar plug. I plug my camper trailer in while towing it and it charges the trailer battery all the time, no issues and works like a charm.

    Had a look at ours and the BH negative connects to the body next to the battery on a nut that also connects to the battery negative.
    The BH positive is fastened onto the top of the thingy that attaches to the positive( under the red plastic cover). The BH positive wire looks like it has an in-line fuse just next to the battery.

    Mine connects in the exact same manner except I do have a fuse just after the main battery in the engine compartment.

    Pics below. Yellow scribble is negative. Red scribble is positive. You can see the in line fuse on the positive cable just before it connects to batt. Excuse the filthy engine compartment.
