12V CANOPY SETUPS
BUILD YOUR BEST DUAL BATTERY SYSTEM
There’s nothing more liberating than roaming the unknown — the places where roads aren’t actually roads, and the horizon has no end. To go off the grid, you’ve got to be on your game. You have to be prepared for every possibility, and your gear can’t let you down.
REDARC is here to power your adventure, from coast to coast, no matter what lies between, with rugged, Outback-tested battery chargers, battery management systems and customizable vehicle management allowing you to control every device from one central pad or your cell phone. Get the information you need on how to rig up and load out to be fully prepared for off-grid life.
Whether you’re making your way to your favourite campsite or your own secluded spot on the map, getting there is all about knowing your stuff and trusting your gear. Self-reliance starts with gaining some know-how and gives you the freedom to go off-grid and stay there.
BENEFITS OF DUAL BATTERY SYSTEMS IN CANOPIES
Most common trucks and 4x4s are built with just one starting battery so you will need to install a second battery for auxiliary purposes, to increase capacity, and allow loads to be run when the vehicle is off. Installing in the canopy opens your battery chemistry options up as you’re not limited by battery chemistries that can withstand engine heat. This means that a canopy install is perfect for a lithium battery. Like a traditional 4x4, you can run anything from a dual batttery charger like a BCDC through to a Manager30 battery management system or even a RedVision TVMS in your canopy to keep your batteries charged.
If you’re taking the family, having the ability to run all the accessories from home is important. For this you’ll want to run a Pure Sine Wave inverter. An inverter allows you to plug in and power all your accessories that run on 110V mains power. This means that blenders, coffee machines and all the creature comforts of home can be powered.
TAKE MORE COMFORTS ON THE ROAD
Truck and 4x4 canopies are highly adaptable and customizable. Being modular, you can add any number of new items to improve how you travel.
From drawer systems to improve organization through to dedicated areas for your 12v fridge, charging bays, or even create the perfect kitchen area including induction cooktops, meal prep areas or even a sink to take your camp cooking to a whole new level.
