    BCDC 1225D and Solar Power - 7 Blinking LEDs!

    All seven LEDs will flash when there is an error code. The error code is the number of times the LEDs blink before there is a short pause and then they will blink again. This will typically happens when the negative is disconnected and then reconnected.

    thanks for the info from Redarc. I had looked to see if the 2019 had the same part number for the alternator as the 2017, so I went from there. My battery Voltage monitor has the alternator voltage ranging between 13.8 V and 14 V, depending on weather I have the heated seats on and the heated...

    Dual battery systems; making sense of the options

    I think you must be talking about the MIDI fuse holders in the middle of the battery.

    Dual battery systems; making sense of the options

    As others have said, they are from Slee. They are not cheap at $49 us. The mil spec terminals are easy to find cheap other places. I have not been able to find the extensions anywhere else.

    Dual battery systems; making sense of the options

    I mounted mine next to my Aux battery. I fabricated a plate from polycarbonate and mounted it on the side of the Slee Aux battery tray. I have been happy with the performance of the BCDC so far. Not familiar with under the hood of and 80.

    Dual battery systems; making sense of the options

    Not all of your information is correct in your statements. The Redarc BCDC units can be mounted under the hood and with the addition of the SBI12 and a momentary switch in the cab you can connect the two batteries for self jumping. You are correct however that the Redarc system is most likely...

    Great, I am glad you found the problem. I hope I don't need it, but I figured for a little more than another $120 I might as well put the SBI12 in there just in case.

    I cut the orange and blue wires slightly different lengths and then put some heat shrink over the end to hold them together and out of the way. I also put some heat shrink on the end of the yellow wire. The last thing I need to do on mine is install the momentary switch in the cab so I can use...

    Redarc 1225 Challenge

    I just went out and did a test to see what mine is doing and when. When the engine is running the profile A LED will be on solid, the vehicle LED will be on solid. The Stage LED will be on solid when the engine first starts indicating Boost mode. After a short time it will then indicate...

    I am using charge profile A. When the truck is running the profile A LED is on solid and when the truck is turned off the LED for profile A is flashing, indicating that the BCDC is in standby mode. Mine is working as I was expecting it to.

    The blue wire only needs to be connected if the vehicle has a variable voltage alternator. If the vehicle has a fixed voltage or temperature compensating alternator the blue wire is left unconnected. The Redarc web site has a calculator that will tell you what type of alternator you have. I have...
