Thread: Charging system on dog trailer

  1. #1

    Default Charging system on dog trailer

    I have a dog trailer that I am wanting to add a marine battery with inverter with plugs to run a fan, chargers for collars and radio’s. I have a 2014 F150 any advice would be great! Pics with setup?

    Buy 12 volt fans and you will not need an inverter. If your collars cannot last a full weekend without charging then you need new batteries. Or you can charge that stuff in the motel overnight. I would suggest keep the trailer set up as simple as possible. I can run my fan all weekend with a medium size trolling motor battery, but I have nothing else on it.

    A true deep cycle marine battery works well.
    Set up to charge 2 ways.
    1) from shore power
    2) from truck while driving but separated so no draw from truck bat when truck is off.
    Also a switch to run off deep cycle or truck bat.

    A modest inverter, 300 or 500 will do.
    Check out Victron for battery seperator and inverter.

    Last year I installed a "Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger" and a deep cycle battery ... so far, it's great!
