You could use charging lugs. These are nice and mount almost flush. You could either cut the alligator clips off and hard wire your cable to the male ends, or do what I do and remove the insulation from the male end and connect your alligator clips.

You could also use these.

Take a couple of bolts and put them through the box. Attach wires from the battery to the bolts. One for pos one neg.
Attach clips to the bolts.

Also.... Hooked up and went camping! We are staying at a local campground / park (Tanglewood Park) until Monday. It is right next to the baseball complex my boy will be playing at all weekend.
Glad to meet you also and hope your son's team wins. If you have a buffing wheel and some time, they look great polished like chrome. Doubt you can powder coat the inner pole due to clearance being pretty small. Suggest PC the outer pole & brackets and polish the inner poles.

Thanks for the input. I intended to bring them with me this weekend and check them out but I was so rushed that I left them laying in the garage.

Thanks for the kind words towards the baseball team.

I'm sitting outside here at the campground, enjoying life. It really doesn't get much better than this!

Doug, the instructions for the VIAIR 400P that I just bought says you should run the engine to make sure the battery doesn't discharge too much so they seem to suggest you should connect to your vehicle's battery rather than the trailer's. Maybe if you have multiple deep cycle batteries you'll be OK. Have you used it connected to your 5er's batteries without being connected to shore power?

Send a message via Yahoo to bob caldwell
You can also find quick disconnects, like tow trucks use, at any place that repairs fork lifts
