I am currently looking to add a small trailer to the family Xtrail and have an accessories battery in the trailer to run an Evacool fridge.
However, I understand that alternators have changed over the years and wanted to see if anyone knew what type of alternator is fitted to this model of Xtrail.
Is the alternator a constant charge unit (generates 14V regardless) or one of the new smart alternators (will spit out around 15V at engine start and reduce this output as the main battery gathers a charge).?
The alternator type will guide what type of battery management unit to get.
