D & D,
I thought so too! but the top diagram is how this boat is already wired (the way it was wired when i bought it), so i just as well figured to keep it similar. I think I may just hook all three batteries together and forget about having the option to isolate one from the other two... they're all 3 identical batteries and the switch is always either set to both, or off... thanks
Thanks for the thoughts on the fuse panel. My charge controller has 6 slots... one labeled solar with a picture of a solar panel, one labeled battery
with a picture of a battery
, and one labeled "load" with a picture of a light bulb. (each with a +/-). This is the only reason I'm thinking of wiring
it as such... If only this ebay purchase
came with any instructions... grrr. What do you think that load connection is there for? another related note... I just bought an engel refrigerator
that came with installation
instructions recommending to hook directly to a battery (not through a controller or fuse panel as it comes with it's own in-line 10amp fuse). Perhaps I should just keep all the electronics
hooked directly to the battery bank... anyone else???
thanks so far.
