Be aware that if you want to reverse the rotation of the reel - like Ashley did, then you need an additional fuse. The method they tell you to reverse rotation is swap battery wires. That's fine but their supplied fuse is then in -ve battery terminal. If you have a short +ve to the chassis of van there would be no fuse to protect cable and you could have a fire!!!

Ashley turned his reel around. He didn’t relise it was a simple case of swapping wires. Good point about the fuse though. Although I imagine most people would use a stand alone battery not connected to the vans chassis electrically.

Ah ok it all depends what else you are running off the same battery , I personally wouldn’t get anything less than 110 amp but that’s just me .

you do not need an over priced electrician to drill a few holes and connect two wires and a fuse holder to a 12v battery

None of the suppliers seem to have stocks of Numax batteries atm - the 105amp XV31MF.

Tanya haven't got stock of anything.

One supplier (Ebay - batteriesontheweb2011) wanted to replace the order with a class C battery.

I ordered a Numax battery on Tuesday from Alpha Batteries and they supplied a Lucas battery which comes from the same battery manufacturer.

If you see a Numax battery offered for sale by a supplier then you need to ask if its actually a Numax they are going to supply or just replace it with another brand they have in stock.

It really frustrates me when they advertise a product knowing they don't have it in stock. Its like WCW advertising an Axeon 4040 membrane but supplying a cheaper Spectrum membrane in its place. At least they tell you this on their web page, which the batteries guys aren't doing.
