Hi, Just saw this - I had the Fraron shipped to the campsite we were at in France last year - My wife is German and so she called them and emphasised the urgency (though I'm sure if you call them they'll also have someone who speaks English) - i think we paid a little extra for express delivery, but it was there within 2 days. With a basic set of tools its possible to fix in the field.
Good luck!
Thank’s
They shipped it yesterday with express and i got it now

Hi, I've just ordered a fraron charger as mine packed up last summer. Couple of questions that I'm not 100% on after reading this thread:

1. I dont suppose somebody could provide a link or picture of the fuse they purchased?

2. The unit does not look like it uses the existing mounting points. Do I need any ply etc to mount it to.

3. As I'm using new wiring, does the original wiring from the old socket just remain in place?

Thanks
Chris

Hi Chris,
here's my thoughts...
For the fuse, you could use an inline one like this:
or a fuse box something like this:

Incidentally, when i did my emergency install of this i didn't have the fuse available and did install without for a period of time (I think the unit even has its own onboard fuse?).

I simply screwed it to the floor with the fittings provided...

The old plug simply fits to the new charger, but its only really doing the one job of showing the charging indicator of the cab control panel. I guess the rest of the wires in that plug are redundant (though mostly handled by the unit's other connections).

Hope this helps

Thanks. I have ordered a couple of fuses with brackets, as intend to connect the starter battery as well.

You look to have more space than I have so not sure how I'd gain access to screw to the floor. I'll maybe use a small piece of ply as per another poster.

Cheers

Thanks for the advice, my Fraron is now fitted. As had been stated already it's not a difficult job, however is made more difficult by (in my van) it not fitting in the stock location. By way of advice, if you are fitting make sure you have the fuses and a bit of ply board to attach it to before you start. It's a lot easier than starting that waiting of other bits..
