permanently on live (positive) unfused feed? front to rear


Recommended Posts

Puma 2.2 2015 Utility XS

I have read (hopefully not imagined) that there is a permanently on live (positive) feed that runs from the 'front' to the back (somewhere in the drivers side triangular fabrication that protects the rear of the rear lights).

I wondered if this was still true for a 2015 Puma 110 utility?  and if so was it still a permanently on live (positive) unfused feed?

Thanks 

Bill

PS also would this apply to my 1989 110 TD (now V8)?

Yes, I can confirm from my rewire of my 1988 110 that the purple wire in the 1989 era will be for the tow socket. As others have noted it is a purple wire which is a fused permanent live. 

What do you want it for? To be safe you could run your own fused wire so you know it will be reliable. I added an additional fused permanent live fused wire to enable me to fit some 12v sockets in the back when I get round to it.

Thanks everybody for the helpful comments - I want it (for the 110 2.2 Puma utility) so I can add a 50 Amp Andersen connector  (not sure if inside and protected) or outside, open to abuse, but accessible.  This would power auxiliary  'stuff' (like a tyre pump, and camping stuff)  

Any more useful advice gratefully accepted

cheers

As above, you’ll need to run a new wire of sufficient capacity to the rear, good compressors for example can draw 30-40 amps on their own. 12voltplanet is a good easy source of parts.

Very good point - Ive just checked - 0ne of mine id rated at 30A 

I will run a new cable, with a bigger fuse to protect it.. end to end.

Run a decent sized battery cable to the rear and then split it off into a 175amp Anderson connecter and a 4 way blade fuse box.

Thanks Muddy - I could do that, I already have a 175A Andersen in the front passenger footwell, and very useful it is too - I think a decent H/D cable(s) to the rear fused at 50A might be the way to go.
