Second battery installation kit for all 1980-83 air-cooled Westfalias (NOT diesel) and all 1980-91 NON-camper (MultiVan, Weekender, Carat & 7 Passenger w/o sink, stove, fridge system) Vanagons. Includes wiring, relay, fuses, battery hold-down clamp and instructions. This easy to install kit is designed to charge a second battery (located under the drivers' seat) while the engine is running and isolate it when the ignition is off. You can then safely run your stereo, a power inverter, interior lighting or any other electrical device you choose to power from the auxiliary battery without depleting the charge of your primary starting battery.

*80-83 Westy Owners:
This kit will not power your refrigerator off the auxiliary battery, as there is no simple way to do so. This kit merely allows a 2nd battery to be installed, charged and isolated from the main battery when the ignition is off. It is up to you to wire all accessories to it.
*Diesel Owners: If you do not have a fridge relay under the driver's seat this is the kit for you. If you have the relay, you want to buy the AUX-700.

Designed for use with the SLA 1161 battery sold separately below. 

We recommend reading our article, "Batteries: How to Keep 'em Happy."
If you've got an 1983-91 full camper Vanagon, please order this kit.
