dual fans?

we put dual fans on my sons 63. the circuit breaker keeps kicking when it gets warmed up. can I put a bigger circuit breaker on or should I wire them separate with different relays and breakers?

Re: dual fans?

Why two fans? How big are the fans and which fans did you get?

Many electric fans pull huge amounts of amps when starting. I suggest using relays to draw your power from the battery directly as well.

Re: dual fans?

Got A/C?

Wire the one to come on when engine starts and then the other @160 if that’s what thermostat is.

If you have AC, then use a tri-nary switch to kick the one on with AC and at temp.

Re: dual fans?

No need for dual fans, just use a 16” spal fan, puller that pulls at least 2200 cfm

No offense but I was looking to figure this here out. Not looking to buy another fan. I think I got it now though

Re: dual fans?

I would wire them with each having it's own breaker and relay but controlled with the same sensor
