I added the extra 10 watt solar panel to my TorkLift Power Armor battery box. Installation was fast as the battery box was already pre-drilled for the extra panel. All the hardware and connections were included. My batteries stay maintained and are always ready for the road!

I had previously bought a Forklift PowerArmor Battery Box without the Solar Power Kit. Having decided to add the Solar Kit I ordered the kit and received same in good order as has been my experience with e-trailer. The problem came as I was installing the unit in the box. The directions said to use the machine screws with clips to attach the solar panel to the lid. The trouble was the clips they sent were for sheet metal screws not machine screws. The hardware bag had 4 #8 machine screws and 4 #8 sheet metal screws that were supposed to be used to screw the electrical connector to the battery box except the predrilled holes in the battery box were to large for the screws machine or sheetmetal. I used the sheetmetal screws to hold the solar panel to the lid and ran to the hardware store to purchase 4 stainless steel machine screws,washers and nuts to hold the electrical connector to the battery box. I have no idea if the solar panel is working that's going to be a wait and see deal at this time

Product is great - But I was very displeased to find out that these units sell for $ 109.00 to $ 119.00 on the internet elsewhere. I will not be using etrailer.com in the future.

Ask the Experts about this TorkLift Accessories and Parts

  • Can the Solar Power Kit for TorkLift PowerArmor Be Used Alongside Other Battery Chargers
    The risk that you run of charging your batteries with multiple sources at once is overcharging them. This can also be an issue with a single source but not likely with what you mentioned because I would be willing to bet each of these has built-in protection form overcharging save for maybe the 12 volt pin on the 7-way but this most likely won't provide enough amps for this to occur. In summary, you can us the Solar Power Kit for TorkLift PowerArmor Battery Box part # TLA7713 while...

  • How to Wire Tork Lift Solar Panel to Two 12 Volt Batteries
    I have included a picture that shows how you would wire solar panel # TLA7713 to two 12 volt batteries. You will not need any additional regulators or other special wiring since you are using 12 volt batteries. I have also included a link to the installation instructions which is where the picture came from.

  • Considerations for Choosing Solar Panels and Inverter for 16-Foot Enclosed Trailer
    As you consider your needs and establish your budget for a solar power system for your enclosed trailer I recommend you start with a read of the help articles I have linked for you. A ground-up solar install is a significant undertaking and the best results come with careful planning. If you can budget for an all-inclusive high-capacity set-up, like the Go Power Solar Flex Kit # 34275012, you can avoid the issue of ending up with less power than you need. Careful review of your devices'...

  • Using TorkLift Solar Power Kit # TLA7713 with Two 6 Volt Batteries
    The Torklift Solar Power Kit # TLA7713 referenced in your question will work with both 6 volt and 12 volt batteries. You will only need to add an 8-amp regulator # TLA7715 if you are planning on using 4 or more batteries and you are connecting two of the TorkLift Solar Panels. Since you are using two 6 volt batteries, you will not need a regulator. I have attached an image that shows the wiring instructions when using two 6 volt batteries that you might also find helpful.

  • Solar Panel and Breakaway System Recommendation for Gooseneck Trailers
    For what you are looking for I think the Solar Panel Kit part # TLA7713 would be a great option to put a maintenance charge on the breakaway batteries of your trailers as they sit for extended periods of time. You will also need the regulator part # TLA7715. I attached an install video that shows the panel being installed on a similar trailer battery. The breakaway system part # 20099 would be a great option to as it has a charger built into it. I attached an install video for this...

  • Solar Panels on Utility/Cargo Trailer With Option to Expand
    You'd need a battery on your trailer to power the items you mentioned as a solar panel on a trailer would not have enough power for all of them at any given time. You'd want to use a solar panel like the # TLA7713 to charge that battery as needed but it would not be ideal for powering accessories directly. Refrigerators draw quite a bit of amperage so you'd need a decent battery plus possibly additional panels. With the Y-kit part # TLA7714 you can add more. Each of the # TLA7713 panels...

  • Solar Panel Battery Charger Recommendation for Enclosed Cargo Trailer
    A solar panel would work well for you with this application. I recommend the Solar Power Kit from Torklift # TLA7713. This is a 10 watt panel that will maintain the charge to boost the life of your battery and bring a battery back from 50-percent life. We recently installed this solar panel on a trailer to maintain the charge on a battery. I have attached a review and installation video of this solar panel for you. If you plan on using this solar panel with a single battery, you...

Basically what you are wanting to do is very possible but it really comes down to you picking out the best battery for your application. Which is going to be the biggest one you can find. We do have a solar panel option we can help with. I recommend the Solar Power Kit from Torklift # TLA7713. This is a 10 watt panel that will maintain the charge to boost the life of your battery...

    I can help you figure out a solution to charging your dump trailer's battery while it is connected to your Silverado. I recommend the Solar Power Kit # TLA7713 to charge your dump trailer's battery. This 8 watt solar panel will maintain the charge and boost the life of your battery. It is important to note that if you are installing this panel on a battery box that contains only 1 battery, you will need a 6-amp regulator # TLA7715 to prevent overcharging.

  • Is Regulator Needed when Installing Solar Power Kit for TorkLift PowerArmor Battery Box
    For your two batteries you would not need to install any type of regulator with the 10 watt solar panel part # TLA7713. This wouldn't put out enough wattage/amperage that it would require regulating for your batteries. The picture I attached shows it wiring directly to a battery.

  • Options for Charging Accessory Battery on Trailer and Making Sure Battery Doesnt Overcharge
    If you do not want to disconnect the vehicle connector from the trailer connector when you are not towing, you can install a Tow Ready Battery Isolation Solenoid # TR118665 on your tow vehicle. This solenoid will shut off the 12V feed from your vehicle battery to your trailer's battery when the vehicle's ignition is off. I have attached a review video of this solenoid for you. I recommend checking to see if your solar charger has a regulator to ensure that the panel doesn't overcharge...

The shorter cable that attaches to the panel directly is 12 inches long and the cable that attaches to the harness and runs to the battery is 38-1/2 inches.

  • Recommended Solar Battery Charger for Scout Troop Trailer
    For your Scout Troop's new trailer, I recommend taking a look at the TorkLift Solar Power Kit # TLA7713. This will do a great job of continuously charging your trailer battery as long as light is available. The 10 watt panel will maintain a charged battery or can bring a depleted battery back from 50 percent life. If you plan on using the panel with a single battery, you will just need to add the 8-Amp Regulator # TLA7715 to prevent overcharging. I have attached a short video demonstration...

  • Parts Needed to Convert Van to Conversion Van with Solar Powered Components
    To convert your van into a conversion van we do offer a couple of different products in terms of charging your power sources via solar power. I recommend the 10 Watt Torklift Solar Power Kit # TLA7713. This is a solar panel that can be used to charge 12 volt batteries. You can then use a Power Inverter like the Wagan # WC3720, which will convert your 12 volt DC power to 115 volt AC power. AC power is required for the operation and charging of the electronics in your conversion van....

    The TorkLift PowerArmor battery box # TLA7708RS has the following internal dimensions: 26-1/2" long x 7-3/8" wide x 12-9/16" tall. You would have to place your batteries next to each other and measure them to determine if both will fit in this box. Provided the batteries are wired as a 12 volt system the solar panel can charge them. But charging 2 batteries will take twice as long. The batteries would need to be at least at 50 percent charge for the solar panel to charge them up. A...

  • Can the Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07 be Used for Deep Cycle Battery
    You are on the right track with your thinking, and I do have a solution for you, but the Tekonsha Two Stage 12 V DC Battery Charger # 2024-07 that you referenced is for smaller breakaway batteries and will not work for your application. Since you are wanting to charge and maintain a deep cycle battery you will need to use the Redarc BCDC Dual Battery Charger # 331-BCDC1240D instead. This comes with a way to connect your battery to the alternator as well as a solar panel like part # TLA7713...

  • Can Ventline Vanair Trailer Roof Vent Be Connected To Solar Panel
    I called my contact at Ventline and asked about part # VP-543SP. The fan is made of plastic. They said typically a solar panel is used to charge a 12V battery and the fan would then draw the power from the battery. This fan draws only 1-1/2 amps so there is very little demand on a battery. We do offer a solar panel, part # TLA7713. My contact said you would not be able to hook it directly to the fan for the power source. Even though the fan draws only 1-1/2 amps, the wattage needed...

  • Adding a Battery to an Enclosed Trailer with a Breakaway Battery Already Installed
    To charge a battery for use in your trailer you will need to either use the CTEK MULTI US 7002 12-Volt Universal Battery Charger w/ Pulse Maintenance # CTEK56353 when you have your trailer parked, or use the Dual Battery Charger # 331-BCDC1240D. The second option will allow you to provide a maintenance charge from your tow vehicle and add a Solar Panel # TLA7713 (see attached picture). This will trickle charge your battery which will not be as quick as the first option but will allow it...

  • Carrying 2 Batteries and 2 Propane Tanks on a Trailer Tongue
    Propane tanks can't be store inside of an enclosed container like a toolbox. If they build enough pressure it has to vent out to open air. That is why the plastic propane tank covers you see on trailers are open at the bottom. I recommend a traditional dual tank cover, # CAM40523, for the propane tanks so you are nice and safe there. The batteries can go into a box. I recommend box # TLA7708R which is designed for batteries. It is 26-3/4 inches long, 8-3/16 inches wide, and 13 inches...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring for Solar and Vehicle Charged Trailer Batteries with Inverter
    I can absolutely help you with this trailer. First, I recommend using the etrailer 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with Junction Box # e99011 along with ring terminals # 44-5310A. This will easily allow you to convert your 4-way wiring and also add your trailer brakes using # 10-1-1. Then you can use the 10 inch # AKEBRK-35-SA for the 4 hole mounting flange or 12 inch # AKEBRK-7-SA brake assemblies for the 5 bolt mounting flange.

  • Powering Hydraulic Dump on Dump Trailer
    If you are looking for something to power the dump on your dump trailer, I highly recommend an independent battery specifically for powering the dump trailer. We have a few different options for charging the battery on the dump trailer. Powering the dump off of the vehicle battery may put too much draw on the vehicle battery. One way you could charge the battery to power the dump trailer is using a NOCO Genius Battery Charger and Maintainer # 329-GENIUS5. This battery charger maintains...

  • How to Charge & Maintain Trailer-Mounted Battery on Dump Trailer
    7-way vehicle wiring can deliver a maintenance charge to keep a charged trailer battery at full charge while you're driving but it will not be able to deliver enough current to re-charge a depleted battery. That will require a shore-power charger like one of the CTEK units, such as # CTEK56353. Another option is a solar panel charger like # TLA7713 which works continuously as long as light is available. For use with one battery you'll also need a 8-amp regulator, part # TLA7715. This...

  • Adding an External Battery to a 2018 Interstate Trailer with Trailer Breakaway Kit
    A trailer breakaway battery is a smaller battery that you definitely do not want to use to power the lights in your trailer with. As convenient as that would be, it could drain the battery enough that the breakaway battery would not activate your trailer brakes long enough to safely bring your trailer to a stop.

Basically, the 12 volt circuit from the vehicle connector will pass through to the trailer side connector and you can attach the wire associated with that circuit directly to the positive terminal of the first battery.
