Solonoid for dual battery setup

I'm thinking about installing a dual battery setup in my CJ. I plan on building my own battery managment system, but haven't been able to locate a suitable solonoid. What are you guys using?

Re: Solonoid for dual battery setup

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] You will need a CONTINUOUS HOLD solenoid. NAPA has them and the part number escapes my memory, but if you did a dual battery search it will come up. Also FARMJEEP has recently done this and he should have the number as well. The search should turn up the schematic for the setup which is sort of based on my oil pressure switch-dependent system of battery management.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Solonoid for dual battery setup

I bought mine from Northwest Power products, wired it so it comes on with either ignition or switched - with a center off. Typical "Hand-Off-Auto"

Although the oil pressure switch idea is pretty good!
