So here’s the plan… I’m going to build a fancy pvc box for all the electronics.
I have the following:
2 stainless steel motorized ball valves. One for water. One for SH.
A 2 channel long range remote system. One channel for water, one for SH
A green LED for when SH is on.
A red LED for when SH is off, water is flowing through injector
A blue LED for the 12v pump so I don’t find out I forgot to turn it on while I’m up in a lift. (I’ve done it a bunch)
A fuse and relay box for the 12v and other junk that needs fuses
2 battery cut off switches
A battery tender charger adapter
A 12V battery meter LED display
A bunch of 4 gauge battery cable and lugs
A bus bar for installing the PW, 12v, and other electronics to the big marine battery
It’s all going to go into a hinged PVC outdoor junction box. The injectors are going to go into their own box so there’s no water or SH running through the main box.
Once I get it wired and tested, here’s the next step:
Wiring the big marine battery to a battery isolator with a battery cut off switch mounted in the truck so I can pick and choose when I want to charge it while driving.
I intend to spray everything electrical exposed with conformal coating.
So ultimately the fancy box will
- Tell me what the voltage is on the battery at all times.
- The LEDs will tell me what’s on and what’s not.
- One of the two motorized valves will always be on.
- Will have a battery cutoff switch to the box (PW, 12v, and accessories will all be wired into the box) at the box and in the truck. The one in the truck controls charging and the one at the box controls power in the box.
I’m no electrician… sooo…
Am I about to turn myself into a human rocket with lightning that shoots out of my butt?
Or just burn down the truck?
What else would you add to the electronics?
What other considerations should I make?
Should I scrap the idea of wiring into the truck and just stick with the little ring terminal adapter that comes with the battery tender and plug it in every couple days?
@Harold what remote are you using?
