Has anyone used the Bus Depot "Leisure Battery Kit"?

http://www.busdepot.com/j15328

I know they have just the relay, but the kit has the battery terminals and all that. Great. Specifically I'm mostly wondering how long that positive battery cable is. Is it long enough to go from the starter battery all the way over to the left side of the engine bay? Or from the alternator to the left side of the bay? Or does anyone just have a measurement? I couldn't find that info on Bus Depot. I would assume that they made it "long enough" but I don't assume that they intend to put the house battery in the same place I do. For all I know, it's "supposed" to go inside, under the back seat or something. But I'd like to put mine on the left side, opposite the starter battery.

Thoughts?

If that cable isn't long enough, I'll just get the relay (below) and source cables and fuses from my FLAPS.

I am sorry if reviving a dead post.. and sorry again if I missed this, but is there a complete list of what to get to install a second battery and what it needed to then set it up to run 110 volts items? I get lost in all the posts....

thanks kindly in advance =])


Go back and read the first three lines on the first page . That's why I took all the photos and did this thread .
then plug in an inverter to run LIMITED 110 volts


It would be great if anyone could see the photos in the first post. While I appreciate the thoughtful tutorial, the dead photo links make it useless. I really don't get why people don't use the samba gallery. I found this incredibly frustrating while restoring my 67.
