Battery Tray

So as we are all aware, the placement of an additional battery in the Teryx seems to be an issue. Looking under the drivers seat where the existing battery is, it does appear that it was not the best use of space. I wonder if someone could fab up a tray to either have an additional battery placed in there, or utilize a full size Optima for example.

Yes I will be speaking with Ian on some other things as well, but this is something that is planned. I just was not sure if anyone had rearranged the battery area under the drivers seat yet.

I will see if I can make it over there today for you

Now that is pretty creative! Looks great bifflefan!

Can I assume that in order to get to them you need to remove the hood?

Yea you have to remove the hood to get to the batteries but I put a conector under the seat so if I need to jump start it I dont need to take everything apart. Plus I have a switch that will link battery 2 back into the main electrical system. So if battery 1 goes bad I can start and run off battery 2. So basicly as long as the stator dosent take a crap I should be ok.

Sounds like you really put some through into it.

Now do you run all your accessories from one battery and then just the standard lights, starter, etc from the other?

Also, did you install an isolator so that any accessories running off the second battery cannot drain the main?

Battery one is conected to the stock electrical system. Battery 2 runs all the extra stuff I installed. I used a smart relay to seporate the batterys. It only alows battery 2 to charge when battery one has 13.2 volts and when it falls below that it cuts the charge to battery 2 off.

Oh very nice, that sounds like a good way of doing it as well. Wonder what the better route is? Isolator or that smart relay that you are using? With your setup, is it possibly for the accessories to drain the main battery if the 2nd battery dies?

Accesories wont drain the battery at all. It physicly seporates the batterys so battery 2 can die and battery 1 will still have a charge. Ok so your riding at night and you stop for a cold beverage. lets say 1 turns into a 30 pack and you pass out with the sterio and the driving lights on. When you wake the next day it will start.

Ok so essentially it works the same as the isolator does...actually we could be talking about the same thing just using different terms. Nonetheless, that is what I will want to accomplish. The no draining thing, not the passed out in the middle of the desert thing
