Thread: power source

  1. #1

    Default power source

    I have a 2015 275V and will be installing a neutra salt system. The instruction booklet tells me to power it with a power source that is only hot with the engine running. I have a tester but am looking for any input that could save me from taking anything apart that I don't have to. Thanks in advance.

    Ignition wire is hot with key on, but engine could be off. Normally though key on = engine on. A simple way would be to use a VSR off the battery connection. That will only operate once the alternator is running. You could also use a connection off the oil pressure sender with some simple circuitry, or a separate oil pressure switch so that you get activation when the engine has oil pressure. Easy to do but needs a couple of fittings and maybe a small relay.
