    Question People Running Attwood Turbo Blowers

    I just installed an attwood turbo blower 3000 in the front air intake and was going to install a additional one in the rear. Has anyone had any problems with draining the battery with one or two of these installed? The specs. say they draw about 3 amps each. Just wondering if the charging system can keep up.

    Good question.

    Got a pic of your fan installed? Can I see? Austinmontanio@sbcglobal.net

    Maybe Nitro can chime in as it appears that he is well versed in electronics.

    Remove duct, lined the fan up on the outside bottom where I wanted it. Drilled the holes then mounted it inside with stainless screws and locknuts. Ran the wire through the duct and put the other half back on.

    To remove the duct there is one nut. Remove the 3 plastic rivits to split the duct in half. Also I loosened up the battery and moved it to the side for more room.

    Have you tried it yet with the fan?
    If so how did it help?

    No I haven't yet, crummy day today, With the engine at idle on the trailor the air really flows out the vent behind the seat. I'm going to check the battery voltage with a fluke volt meter before I ride. Then check it when I come back to the dock a half hour later and see what it reads.
