Don’t worry about battery life with HiddenPower and ExtendedPower

HP-boxBefore the installationWe love hearing installation stories from our customers, especially when they add extensions and more layers to the stories they have already shared with us. When we originally featured Blanco1 in this blog, he had just received and unpackaged his Torklift HiddenPower and was excited to get it installed. This time, we are sharing his story and thoughts about the installation of his HiddenPower and what he thinks about it now that he’s used it. Here’s what forum user Blanco1 previously said about the HiddenPower: “What’s awesome about it is that it bolts inside the frame rails under the truck and saving me what limited space I have above.”

Now that his HiddenPower battery installation is complete, here's what Blanco1 has to say about his new HiddenPower:

“I personally think this was a great and yet simple idea, I never would have thought of and when I learned about it, I had to get it. Thanks Torklift.”
                               –Blanco1, Rv.net

There we go again, thinking outside of the box, or in this case, underneath the box.

Extend your camping trip with HiddenPower and ExtendedPower battery mounts

hiddenpower1Hidden on the frame of your truck

Going on long camping trips in your truck camper are incredibly exciting. But, even though you’re going on a long trip, it doesn’t mean you can’t have access to power the entire time. Imagine how much longer you can stay on your camping trip if you only had installed an extra battery. Don’t be forced into cutting your trip short. Instead of running out of battery power in the middle of your camping trip, consider bringing along extra batteries with Torklift’s HiddenPower and ExtendedPower battery mounts.

HiddenPower
HP-boxWhen you go on a long camping trip, every inch of space matters. All of the items and gear that you are bringing with you are crucial for a successful trip. Instead of wasting space on extra batteries to power your camper, floodlights and electronic accessories, use the HiddenPower battery storage instead.

Here’s what forum user Blanco1 had to say about the HiddenPower battery mount:

“What’s awesome about it is that it bolts inside the frame rails under the truck, saving me what limited space I have above.”

We couldn’t have said it any better ourselves. Instead of taking up precious space in the truck or camper, Blanco1 can now install and mount an extra battery in the HiddenPower storage box underneath his truck. Securely attached directly on his truck’s frame, the HiddenPower battery mount is a no drill installation.

 

As an added bonus, hook up the HiddenPower Wire Harness allowing the HiddenPower battery to become an extension of your truck or RV battery. The extra battery is now tied to your electrical system, always charging the battery within the HiddenPower battery box and vice versa. This helps to prevent your vehicle from being drained and keeps your rig always ready to go RVing and camping.

HP-wire harnessHiddenPower Wire Harness accessoryAs you can see to the right, Blanco1 has the HiddenPower Wire Harness. He’ll “always know what battery is the bad one” but won’t have to worry by running his batteries together as backup should one fail. The HiddenPower Wire Harness allows connection to the hidden battery beneath your truck frame to the truck’s main battery. This keeps the battery within the HiddenPower mount charging while the vehicle is running, giving you extra power at all times. Simply turn your ignition to auxiliary and your HiddenPower spare battery kicks in, without having to run your engine.

The ExtendedPower battery tray is a universal mount for extra RV batteries that’s specially designed to attach easily to any receiver extension. The ExtendedPower can also be plugged into the back of your truck so extra batteries can charge automatically by your truck’s alternator. Instead of wasting fuel by leaving your truck engine running, plug in the ExtendPower batteries and enjoy the use of electrical accessories such as computers, lights, chargers and stereos.extendedpower1Bring multiple batteries
