Eastern beaver
« on: March 22, 2021, 12:27:03 PM »
I've done a search and can't find anything that matches my question.

I fitted an Eastern Beaver fuse board a couple of years ago. I only ever had my satnav attached to it. I was looking online and it seems that 1 of the 3 fused plugs should be permanently live. I've tested mine just and all 3 are only powered with the ignition on. Is this right?  Or was a different version made, the website says it only comes as 1 model so should be a permanent live on 1 of the leads.

I found a set of instructions that seems to indicate all 3 circuits are ignition switched but the second paragraph implies there was a kit that did have an unswitched live circuit ... the fuse with the red wire. :027:

Link won't work for me. I'll take another look online and see what I can find.

 Yeah after reading that, it would seem that there were 2 different types. My wires look different to the pictured fuse panel. My red and black wires have a red and 2 black wires in the plug. The black and yellow and black and white are just single wires.

It's not an issue, I'm thinking about the Innovv K2 cameras and a permanent live would have been ideal with a plug and play type fitting.

Jim makes different versions. You can have two switched and one live or all three live or all three switched. You specify what you want at the time of order. You also need to say whether you want CANbus compatibility or not.
Sounds like you purchased the all three switched version.

Just had an email back from them. Guys called Dave now, not Jim. He said they did make my kit but no longer do. So it was all 3 switched lives. I was only checking after the electrical faults I had last year have got me paranoid.

The owner of Eastern Beaver is Jim Davis. Dave may be an employee.
