Was this a little Dealer lie
« on: July 30, 2013, 05:39:13 PM »
the rear socket under the passenger saddle wasn't working (even with the engine running). The dealer faffed about with it yesterday and apparently the fuse had blown. But he told me that Triumph had told him that socket was just to charge an Ipod or something similar and not to run a low powered intercom device. Sounds a bit odd to me.
They've actually wired in my intercom system so don't actually need that connector any more, but what do you folks think. My suspician is that the connector is still broken and to get me going just wired in the device.

That socket is for heated gear ,the one by the motor is always hot . I use it with my battery tender.

Your dealer is full of it, the manual clearly states that the sockets should handle 10A each.

As said, you're supposed to be able to run heated gear from both sockets simultaneously which is often in the 8-9A range. An iPhone charger is only about 1.3A (if you have a beefy 2.1A charger that can take an iPad).

So charging your phone with your heated gear on full effect might be pushing it, but anything less than that should be fine... If it isn't, the dealer needs to fix it.

No it was not a little dealer lie, it was a big dealer lie.

TOTAL BS Dude

They are designed to run heated gear  :087: The draw generated by a intercom system and or satnav is nothing in comparison  :084: :084:
Take it back get the dealer to sort it.
