    I'm currently doing only odd top windows via WFP and am slowly building up my system with a view to doing all tops WFP.
    As I'm obviously trying to prioritise expense- just wondered if a second trickle charge battery is really necessary at this stage(as I am currently only using for brief periods?).

    You will eventually yes. I got one from amazon for £56 to my door!!!

    FYI it should fit in the space behind the passenger chair. Like mine :D

    cheers guys, appretiate it. If you could link me an example suitable battery and trickle charger(assuming these are separate items), I'd REALLY appretiate it when u get a sec? :)

    I can do later but forget the trickle charge thing.

    You want a proper split charge relay. Dead simple to
    Wire up. A monkey could do it.

    Total cost inc postage will be less than £80 :)

    But this is the battery i have used for a year now. Perfect battery, free delv, gives over a full days use of shurflo and doesnt kill it.

    Oh and battery now has 4 years warranty. And the dual terminal is great. I put all my connections onto the smaller ones.
