We all know summer is hot inside the cabs of our SXS. So I've rigged up a couple of fans to help cool down the cab.
I didn't want to drill the fan's "support rails" into the ROPS (Roll Over Protection System), aka roll bars. So I used water clamps to hold them in place.
I just need to replace the wires I ran with bigger gauge. Then finish the wiring to switches, relays, and battery. But the hardest part. The actual mounting of the fans is complete. Also just in case anyone plans on doing this. I may have to only use 1 fan in the middle instead on 2. Due the the draw on the battery.
The fans are 12", 12V 80W. So I'm figured they were 6.7 amps apiece. Used the WAVe formula to get unknown values Watts=Amps*Volts then solve for unknown. I know the watts and volts from sticker on fan. So just used above formula to get amps. So a 7 amp fuse should be OK and a 10 amp fuse will be good.
So pulling 14 amps from the battery all day may be too much for the charging system to keep up with. And I haven't even installed the radio yet. So I will have to test and let you know.
See pics below.
I purchased a Hisun 750 Sector to use for my oilfield business. It quit running after only 12 days. I was told by the very rude people at Hisun that apparently I wasn’t supposed to be driving it in the mud and that I also put to many miles on it.. so in-turn they will not fix it under warranty. Also, if the salesman tells you they are cheap to fix don’t believe it. They want half as much as what I paid for it to fix it. My advice is be aware that these UTV’s are made for minimal use and not backed by the dealership or the manufacturer. Also it was thrown in my face by the warranty manager that since it was used for business the warranty is shortened to 90 days. I’m not sure what the difference is since it’s not covered under warranty even after only 12 days.
