How would this be wired up with a Hardkorr battery in a Hardkorr battery box.

If you jump back onto the product page on the Snowys website, you'll find below the specifications section and above the product reviews, a PDF file with full installation and operation instructions. This should provide you with all the info you need for installation, and what resources you'll need if not supplied.

Shielded cable1 answer
Could you possibly tell me how long the supplied shielded cable is please? Need to see if it will reach the rear of my car
Chris - NSW(1 year ago)
We've just measured the cable and its 2m in total. The little terminal clips of either end are about 13mm deep, so the physical cable length is more like 197.5m. Hope that helps!

Weatherproof rating.1 answer
Does this product have any IP Rating? I intend on mounting it in the tub of my ute, under a soft tonneau, and need to know if it has any IP Rating? Thanks.
Alex - Sydney, NSW(1 year ago)
Just jumped off the phone with Hard Korr on this one, and they've said that theres no IP rating on the remote battery monitor. It needs to be installed out of the weather, where it cant gets rained on. Perhaps you can install it on the front wall behind the cab, and get a little mini cap over it, like some outdoor powerpoints? I'm pretty sure there are things like this available through Jaycar.
