Bought the Warn 9500 today - got the mount plate also. Now - what about juice for my new winch. Is one auto type battery enough?

I'm using only one battery and a high-amp alternator. Works fine so far.

Think of it this way...

1. One battery system = a possibility of trouble.
2. Two battery system = less cost than a tow bill

It's not a situtation of if it will happen that you need that second battery, but when. You can construct your own system, tray, wires, switches/elect. hardware, etc. for far less than you can buy it. It's a bit of piece of mind on the trail. This is not a case of overkill.

If running 2 batteries , wouldn`t it be better to run 2 six volt batteries in series . Used to do this in the race car and it turned over a 468 Chevy with Gobs of compression like it was a 4 cylinder. Just my thoughts .

LEVE - Like your info. How a bout a little wiring diagram for this setup? I looked at my golf cart wiring and nearly had a nervous breakdown. Thanks Merlin
