Volt ?'s

O.k. I'm not very good at this electrical b.s.

I finally got all my lights wired up for the glamis night run and I wanted to check where I was running volt wise.

Dash gauge readings

Idleing I have 14 volts
5 HIDs on my rack all on I have 11 volts
rack and headlight taillights on I have just under 10

How long will it take for my rhino to die?

I want to make sure I'm not going to be stranded out in the dunes with a dead battery.

I think it was covered over at commieforums but where is the safe spot?

I would probably give you about 2-3 hours until the battery would be too low to run the starter motor.

over 12 will be safe for a while. pull your headlight plugs so you can run your tail lights with your top lights. 4 hids is usually the limit on these things. you can also get LED 1157 bulbs at Kragen for you taillights and save some more watts. for better 1157's that fill the lense better, go to www.superbrightleds.com

A second battery just delays the problem KJ at 11 volts it will just take longer for the batteries to die, but they will.
