Checking your car before you leave for a long trip or holiday

Remembering that when you go on holiday your vehicle is unusually heavily loaded and will have to cope with faster speeds, perhaps hotter weather and if you do have a problem a repair garage or call out can be some distance off and costly.
So here are a few pointers to check before setting off for your dream break.

• Oil, check your oil and top up if necessary
• Your windscreen is going to get dirty with insects and other dirt, make sure your screen wash is topped up and working.
• What if you get a punctured tyre? Make sure your spare is in good condition and make sure its fully inflated. Check your jack is working and your spanner and other tools are in place.
• Going somewhere hot? You will need auto air conditioning to be in good working order and Monteltham Auto Electrics specialise in Car Air Conditioning servicing.
• In case of personal accident it’s a good idea to make sure you have a small First Aid kit in the car.
• Check your tyre pressure for a loaded car as it will be slightly higher than normal, this information can usually be found in the rim of the driver’s door frame or in the manual.

Having your tyres inflated to a higher pressure will help cope with the heavier load and will save on fuel.
Loading your car and the best way to arrange your luggage.In parts of England they have this saying “Ship shape and Bristol fashion which came from the old sailing ship days when if it wasn’t lashed down you would loose it in the next storm. The same precautions need to be made when packing a car for any distance travel, as any emergency breaking could cause any loose items to fly through the interior of your car at the same pre-breaking speed of your car, not good!

Have heavy items packed at the bottom. Do not have any items sitting on levels higher than the front seat head rests. If you can lash the luggage down all the better. Make sure the driver can see properly and is not obstructed by any internal packing.

Roof rack luggage and things to consider

Auto Electrics MelbourneIf you have a roof rack it will always be handy to maximise the internal space for the passenger’s but there are several things that will make your journey safer. Never overload the car and it’s easy to do, our advice is to load the lightest luggage on the roof rack and make sure it is well tied down and secured.
It is a good idea to check all your ropes and lashings every now and again during your trip as these can easily become loosened during the trip.

Auto Dual Battery Systems

Auto Dual Battery Systems

Based in Montmorency we provide auto electrical services for the surrounding area including Greensborough, Diamond Creek and Eltham. The dual battery system for your car or four wheel drive, offer significant advantages over the single battery, as we will explain.

The dual battery system we provide you will depend on your vehicle, caravan or camper and how much you use it. We customise your system, whether it is an under-the-hood system, or just the battery system in your camper. It is fitted so that it is isolated from your car starter battery. It can also work in conjunction with solar panels or chargers.

Some dual battery system may require a DC-DC charger and this is most likely in late model vehicles having variable voltage and various compensating alternators. The point being that with some alternators it is just not possible to fully charge a second battery, the voltage outputs are just too low.

Fullriver Dual Battery SystemsThe main advantages of the dual battery system is to provide an alternative power source while off road or away from an electrical supply where you need that extra power for the camping fridge, camp lighting, or 250 volt power inverter. If you have ever try to do this with a single car battery you will soon realise that there just is not enough stored power in a single battery to power all your utilities without seriously draining your car battery to the extent that you will be unable to start your engine.

There is always the alternative to keeping your car engine running so it is constantly charging your car battery while providing power to the camping fridge, but in most circumstances this is an impractical solution.

The answer to this power gap is the dual battery system. The principal behind the dual battery system is that the two batteries are connected together and both get charged while the engine is running. Whilst you are stationary and the engine is turned off, you can plug your utilities in using the secondary battery which is isolated form your primary battery, so there is never any chance of draining you main auto power source.

Fullriver Dual Battery Systems Eltham Diamond Creek GreensboroughWe provide two products which we can discuss their individual merits with you after finding out your requirements. The two dual battery systems we provide are: Full River USA and Radarc

All our batteries are maintenance free and come with warranty.
