Just remember the amps you're dealing with, we use 80amp relays and 60amps fuses on our current set-ups.

I popped a 30 amp fuse in a few seconds on my first try and my friend's first remote set-up was only made for 3 amps, so it blew instantly....and then he listened to me :lol:

Hi Michael, OK dug the compressor out of the trailer last night, looks like a no name brand also not sure how many L/min it pumps out on the spec sheet it says Max Intermittent Pressure 150PSI continuous use 40 Mins, Max restart pressure 200PSI, Inline Pressure 60 PSI???? Think I paid about R800 for it at Safari Centre about 5 years ago and of cause I turfed the box about a month ago when I was having a clean up!!
