The Direct™ nosebox allows charging from a single source and improves the charging of liftgate batteries by utilizing a DC/DC converter to boost the voltage for optimal charging.
In cold temperatures, the DC/DC converter compensates for temperature by providing higher charging voltages. The result is well-charged liftgate batteries that will last longer and have ample power for liftgate operation.
It also includes an interior light controller (harness sold separately) designed to turn the lights on inside a trailer and automatically shut them off either via a timer or if the liftgate batteries drop to a low state of charge.
Nosebox options include dual pole and dual/single pole combo.
