    Dumb Dual Battery Question: "Start-Only Battery" Wiring

    I've read a bunch of threads on dual battery installations and I've seen many people talk about having a "start-only" battery. I'm just wondering whether people wire it so that it's truly only used for starting, with the fusible links rerouted to the secondary battery, or if they mean "start...

    Clarification and a few questions.

    I have an HDJ 80 with the 4.2 I6 turbodiesel 1HDT with a five speed. It is my understanding that this engine uses both batteries for start then reverts back to one for the rest of the electrical, correct? Here are my questions.... How does the second battery remained charged, is the...

    Dual Battery Install

    I am usually over on the 100 series forum but helped a friend install an off-grid engineering dual battery kit. It took a little longer to install than expected since we made a couple enhancements to the install to avoid potential issues in the long run. It is a pricey kit but my buddy didn't...

    Lead acid dual batteries have their days numbered.

    A little while ago, I decided I wouldn't waste money on a lead acid dual battery set up. A 35 group AGM has 60 amps of total power, but they don't like to be discharge below 30-40%. Plus they drop voltage as they discharge making 12v accessories like fridges not able to use all the power. So...
