I have the opporunity to sell my 12 volt Aero-Tow to the Dakota owner in the hangar next to me, and “upgrade” to the 24 volt model.
I know there was some earlier posting on this, but I never understood the outcome and wasn’t especially concerned at the time.
Can the 24 volt Aero-Tow be adapted to provide a safe power source to the SR20, to be used for running avionics on the ground, starting, or charging a depleted battery? Also, what is the cost of the equipment to do the adaptation (cables, etc.)?
Can a 24 volt charger and 24 volt battery be purchased to do the same thing? (Making the Aero-Tow upgrade swap would cost me about $300 net.)
Finally, for anyone with the 24 volt Aero-Tow unit, how do you like the variable drive? Candidly, I’ve gotten used to the two-speed model and find it pretty good to use.
Thanks for any input on this.
