Intro from old Land rover tragic

Post by PhilipA »

Hi , I just bought a 2018 Everest Trend 4WD and plan to set it up to tow my off road old Coromal van .
I am currently about to fit a false floor and fridge and Lithium battery to run it as well as power my caravan battery and fridge while the engine is running.
i have experience in doing this stuff over many years.
I am trying to ID a fuse in the Power Distribution box that I can tap for an engine on activation of the relay controlling the output cable.
I had fuse 16 as a likely contender but then I find it is an M type fuse which would be hard to tap.
Any suggestions welcome.
I live at the Central coast NSW and have had various Land Rovers for over 30 years and now being 74 no longer want to spend my time under a car.
Regards PhilipA

Hey mate look in the electrical section as I'm sure there is wealth of info to operate a relay when ignition is on.

I finally tapped into one of the 20 amp square fuses in the engine fuse box and lost one 12v power outlet(back of console) I couldn't be fussed to find a route from the cabin fusebox out to the engine bay. It doesn't seem to trigger any warnings so I assume that the wiring is just conventional to the power points. Checking the battery state of charge is a trial, as the bonnet and all doors have to be closed and locked to get an accurate reading. Anyone know where the bonnet switch is ?
