hi guys
i'm thinking of some electrically heated gear; what spare capacity do you all think there is from the alternator?
i'm expecting a current of around 4-6 amps...
will she take it?

Some of us have had bad battery experiences, they apparently could do with a bit more robustness to begin with. Just mho.

cheers for that. i know about the battery probs elsewhere; never a peep of a prob for me (touches head). always firm with the starter to be sure though.
i've tried adding up various wattages for stuff, but engine management and fuel injection wattages are not stated.
i guess i'll just give it a go and see.
