In this Video I show at test run a Victron MPPT controller with a 100W Allpowers flexible solar panel I purchased on Amazon. I mounted the controller and DC sub panel on starboard so I can easily move it around the Catalina 320 sailboat. The charger sub panel I made from Starboard 1/2 inch. The Sub panel was later mounted inside the port locker next to the shore battery charger where the solar charger and the battery charger shared the connection to the battery from the locker.

3) Feed the MOTORHOME wire to the multi-pin connector
4) Identify the positive 12VDC terminal on the multi-pin connector
5) Insert wire into multi-pin connector

DIY Battery Charger Installation – CTEK 4.3 – On F430 (same procedure for 360)
Ferraris and all other vehicles using lead acid batteries really hate to sit unused. It will lead to premature battery failure and sometimes an unusable car, usually when you want to use it.
Install a trickle charger to both maintain proper charge and periodically run the lead acid battery through charging cycles. I have selected the CTEK 4.3, but better chargers are released periodically. My previous favorite was the CTEK 3300.
CTEK 4.3: (*The CTEK 4.3 is also known as CTEK 56-864 I believe)
$59 amazon prime : http://www.amazon.com/CTEK-56-864-Ba…words=ctek+4.3
$55 at http://www.techbatterysolutions.com/…c7827_a_7cC002
12 minutes (while filming video, taking pictures, and drinking Old Engine Oil)
2 (scale 1-10)
10mm wrench. Preferably an insulated handle wrench so you don’t short out the battery accidentally.
1. Remove passenger footwell (2x philips head screws)
2. Remove negative 10mm terminal post. I did not remove the entire terminal because then I would need my radio code and the cars ECUs would need to re-learn.
3. Install negative (black) CTEK lead to negative battery terminal.
4. Install positive (red) CTEK lead to positive 12v battery terminal.
5. Zip tie pigtail leads to something solid to stress relieve terminals
6. Replace passenger footwell.
7. Test charger.
Step-by-step installation of this $99 inverter on my truck, making it possible to plug in AC battery chargers and tools. Truck becomes like a generator.
