Hi Jan,

Looking back on this thread, I notice the comments re power to drive all the spot lights. Why don`t you try fitting 2 alternators, and 2 batteries instead of a larger alternator. I used this system on the Landy as I had a fridge and freezer running all the time. It should be easy to fabricate a bracket for a second alternator.
