CFX35. CFX35 is powered by second battery and battery

Customer Question
Hi Mechanic's Assistant: Hi...

Hi

Mechanic's Assistant: Hi. How can I help?

CFX35 is powered by second battery and battery monitor set at LOW.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the battery? And have you tested it with a voltmeter?

Battery is 12 months old and has been tested ok. 2nd battery charged by Redarc 1225 BCDC installed at same time. CFX35 shuts down whilst installed voltage charge gauge shows 12V instead of 10.1V shut off voltage at LOW setting.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '12 RV?

Toyota Hilux 2009

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have had battery and charger checked by auto electrician. CFX35 works perfectly whilst vehicle is being driven and operates for approx. 1 day after AGM battery has achieved float. I used to get almost 3 days operation at 4deg setting when camped.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Thanks Pearl, I am wondering if there is a reset procedure or if CFX35 has a fault

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

I would check to see if this is a wiring fault between the charger and the battery itself causing this fault needing repaired or replaced.If this is or was already checked and found to be o.k. let me know so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
