Phillips’ liftgate kit

Electronics | August 19, 2014

Phillips Liftgate Conversion KitPhillips has compiled a kit for liftgate dual-pole installations or single- to dual-pole conversions from a chassis ground system to a ground return system for supplemental liftgate power requirements. The dual-pole cable has a dedicated positive and ground line directly from the tractor’s batteries to help ensure that the charge to the liftgate batteries is continuous and not relying on the intermittent fifth wheel/kingpin ground combination. The kit includes a dual-pole socket, battery cables, shrink tubing and accessories for installation.
