    Welding on the trail

    I've always been a fan of both the ready welder and also the premier power welder. The ready welder is a portable mig gun. The premier welder is an onboard system that is mounted under the hood and uses a H.O. alternator. The premier system can be used as a arc welder mig welder or tig. It can charge batteries and also has a 110v 20A outlet to run power tools.

    To connect them in a series you connect the positive from the first battery to the negative of the second battery, this will give you 24 volts. You can connect a third battery to get 36 volts. Use the negative from the first battery as your ground and the positive from the last as your welding lead.

    If you connect the negatives together and the positives together (parallel) you will increase the amps.

    If you use this as a welder on the trail just make sure all batteries are disconnected from the vehicles and of course that you have at least one battery to start your vehicle.
