Re: Dual Bat for Hoosierjeepr
[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I have to tell you, guys......those diagrams are a thing of beauty. Isn't simplicity wonderful! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] To think that my original design would be running the Indy-annointed backroads of Middle America almost chokes me up...(sniff)...[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]. Hoosier.....if you study those designs, you will understand that you connect the battery-draining stuf to the second battery; like your huge, 1950's vintage coffe-grinder HAM radio, and the 12V cold box, and the wife's 12V hair dryer. If you run the second battery down, no problem.....you crank up with the "isolated" first battery and when oil pressure comes up, you can recharge the #2 battery on the way home. If your Jeep is at home and little nephew Leroy is playing in it, and leaves the headlights on, you can crank up using the #2 battery as a booster by pushing the dash-mounted momentary-contact button to connect the #2 battery. So you see, Hoos, you are covered. Now, go get the new JCWhitney catalog and get a 12V cold box and a 12V hair dryer.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
I never believe any statistics unless my moonguys [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] made 'em up themselves.
