Question about 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck
I have installed a HHO generator on my dodge diesel one ton, turbo,
it is drawing over 40amps, what can i do to get the amps down, it heats up the wires, and has started one fire, and also heats up the toggle switch.
I am using heavy gauge wire but it still heats up;(
1st thing to check is the electrolyte: Use white vinegar, NOT baking soda or lye. Use a minimum of 12 ga wire on all connections, and power the generator through a relay using a 30A fuse to feed a 40A relay.Install a Tap-a-line connector from the radio circuit of the fuse panel to the toggle switch, then run a 14ga wire from the toggle switch to the relay. Doing this ensures that the generator is energized ON LY when the ignition switch is turned on. The 12ga feed wire to the relay should connect directly to the positive terminal on the battery. The 14ga wire from the switch is used only to activate the relay. This way the relay carries the amperage to the generator, and it does not pass through the switch. If the amperage is still too high, use less vinegar and use more steam distilled water to lessen the concentration, therefore lowering the amperage draw. All the parts required for this hook-up can be obtained at AutoZone, Oreilly's, etc. Good luck.
