Hj60 Split Charging

Howdy ALL

Can any body help us on what system of split charging ie IBS or NATIONAL LUNA is the best way to go.

The HJ60 is 24v which can be a problem at times and when split charging
is placed into the equation which way do we go.

We only wish to run a ENGEL 40L water filtration and work light and spots
can anybody help us with a particular system or procedure.

Any help would be great...Thank you....

keep everything 24 volt , the fridge is ok, lights should be ok with 24 volt bulbs

you can get shurflo pumps in 24volts

A split charge relay on fleabay for 24 volts is 19 quid

or

if you want to maximize what charge the batteries get and / or you want to go 12 volts look at this kit - its expensive though Sterling Power Products: Battery to Battery Chargers
