    Yesterday when I got back - this was much better than after the first nights camping.

    This morning still within an acceptable ( but not 100% ideal range? )

    Is there also one in the jack storage area?

    Iíve not touched either as electrics isnít my thing but did have to wiggle the jack out as that was left in place when the drawers and slide was done.
    >Is there also one in the jack storage area?
    Yes, two from memory, plus some more tucked away behind the panel. But these shouldn't have been disturbed by your Traxide install or by removing the jack. Mind you, it would be worth checking. You should be able to feel up with your left hand and follow any black wires to the earthing points.
    I still reckon something has been disturbed with the work done on your car. My guess is a loose earth point.

    The guy I spoke to at the battery place was pretty confident the Varta was ok, not failing or needing replaced warranty or otherwise.

    He didnít want to say exactly what lifespan the Varta would have - as he had concerns about the Traxide isolators and the way itís connected to the cranking battery.

    Also mentioned that having the Traxide installed would void the Varta warranty. I found that interesting - not sure Iíve heard that before in relation to this as LR have replaced a battery under warranty with the Traxide system before for me.

    Upshot is itís probably not the actual battery itself thatís causing the fault codes but something else.

    Next on the list is to get the earths checked tomorrow by the accessories installers. See if they missed anything or itís came lose somehow.

    Only one code showing today on the icarsoft and not the original EPB one - U0140 Lost communication with the body control module.

    I donít have a lot of positives to say about Old Mate at the battery shop.

    Hope your BS meter was ringing loudly!

    When they make such a comment, a good way to sort wheat from chaff is to ask them to put those comments in writing. They often back peddle quickly, or refuse to do so.

    Another good one would be to ask if an Intervolt or Redarc would have the same issue - both connect the same, just slightly different voltage levels.

    Very loudly, was about to suggest they ring Traxide for a more detailed view on the USI-160. Not my realm to try and explain it to someone outside the Land Rover world who's not come across it before.

    I know it works having given it a thorough test over the weekend's 2 nights camping in the cold and happy to say it did exactly as expected. Lights, fridge and fast recharge in the morning solar or driving.

    Quick update thatís hopefully the loop closed on the EPB and other fault codes from last week.

    Iíve had the dealership who serviced recently take a look this morning, theyíve ran diagnostics and inspected the EPB.

    Nothing to report back on, didnít charge for the workshop time, nice of them.

    Just have to monitor for anything else along our way since nothing could be found. Will have the earths checked one more time today / tomorrow when the driving lights are hooked up.

    Thanks for all the comments / advice so far always appreciated.
