Second Battery

4 posts in this topic

I am installing a second battery in my 07 Prowler. How do I wire it up so the stereo doesn't drain the main battery, but the second battery can still charge

If you run the batteries in series, it will drain from both. You need to split the connection from the alt/charge at the source and run seperate positive and negative wires.

Ok, it's awhile. New update, installed two large dry cell batteries under the seat. One for the stereo and the other is the engine battery. Installed a relay between then so when the engine is running both batteries charge. I also replaced the stock starter with one from the xtx 1000. Much better torque.
