Dual Battery Wiring, not to beat a dead horse
Let me start by saying I did the search! I know this has been covered but I have some specific questions regarding dual battery wiring.
For more than 4 years I ran 2 red tops, with a continuous hold soleniod. One of my red tops finally died, and I have replaced it with a Yellow top (for winching and off-road accessories).
With a red and a yellow top, can I run a similair set-up. IE Continuous Hold Soleniod, oil pressure switch, and an over ride switch without damaging either battery? One deep cycle the other not.
I my search I found CJDaves reference to a perfect dual battery wiring set-up from CJJOE. I was unable to find any wiring schema from that reference. Does anyone/CJDAVE have a copy of that set-up?
Other than the standard, Hellroaring, painless, blah blah...does anyone have a tried and true wiring set-up that I am over looking. My goal is to isolate the batteries, (no $30.00 surepower, NAPA isolator commments please) charge both batteries, and possibly have a self jump option, at the same time I want it as simple, trouble free, and basic as I can make it.
I appreciate any help you can lend,
