Ask the Experts about this Redarc Accessories and Parts

  • Why is Relay Kit for Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger Needed for Smart Alternator
    The 60-Amp Relay Kit for Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger # 331-RK1260 is needed - but not necessarily required - for use with the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger # 331-BCDC1225D (25 amp) or # 331-BCDC1240D (40 amp) with a smart alternator because those chargers require starter battery voltage and running an ignition feed to the charger can be difficult. Your example of a long run to a trailer is on the money and exactly what it would be needed for. I have added a cut out...

  • Does 2017 Chevy Colorado Have Smart Alternator
    According to my research yes, your 2017 Chevy Colorado does have a "smart alternator" although you will want to verify this. There should be a sensor on the post of your battery terminal if you do have a smart, or variable voltage, alternator. If so then you would need the 60-Amp Relay Kit # 331-RK1260 to use the 25 amp Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger # 331-BCDC1225D.

  • Can Redarc 12 Volt to 12 Volt Charger be Used on Vehicle with Smart Alternator
    To charge a trailer battery with a vehicle that has a smart alternator does require the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger # 331-BCDC1225D with the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger Relay # 331-RK1260 like you mentioned if you don't have access to a ignition power source. See picture for further explanation and how to wire it up. If the batteries are wired in parallel you could charge both of them with this charger but you wouldn't be able to charge them individually with a...

  • Recommended RV Shore Power to Lithium Battery RV Converter and Engine Alternator to Lithum Charger
    The Progressive Dynamics PD9100 Series Inteli-Power Converter - Lithium - 12 Volts - 60 Amps # PD9160ALV will allow up to 60 amps power draw. It sounds like you are able to pull more, so I recommend upgrading to the 80 amp # PD9180ALV. This will charge your batteries in about 2 hours give or take. If you want to charge your battery while driving, I recommend the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger - Dual Input - DC to DC - 12V/24V - 40 Amp # 331-BCDC1240D along with the 60-Amp...

  • RedArc BCDC Battery Charger Compatibility with Variable Voltage System and AGM Batteries
    The Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger - Dual Input - DC to DC - 12V/24V - 40 Amp # 331-BCDC1240D is designed to work with smart alternators like yours when you use the 60-Amp Relay Kit for Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger # 331-RK1260. You will also need to use the 60-Amp MIDI Fuse Kit for Redarc In-Vehicle 40-Amp BCDC Battery Charger # 331-FK60. This prevents your alternator being overloaded and it won't back-feed your alternator either. This system is rated for AGM or Lithium...

  • Recommended Vehicle To Trailer DC to DC Charger for Multiple Trailer Batteries
    Your auxiliary power wire gauge at your 7-way along with the discontinued CTEK40186 will be sufficient to charge your trailer batteries. The CTEK D250S will amplify the signal from your auxiliary power to boost it to 20 amps versus the 2-3 amps of a system without the CTEK unit. Changing your gauge of wire to 8 and adding the # DL24086 connections will help slightly but if you are wanting to charge multiple batteries well and more quickly/efficiently, you really will want the discontinued...
