I am looking for some information regarding battery
banks on your Yachts.
It appears that at present (factory fit), I have two 140 AH leisure batteries both with separate isolation switches at the Nav station.
What I donít understand is, why have 2 separate banks (apart from redundancy), why not have 1 bank with twice the capacity?
I would like to replace these 2 batteries with new ones and increase the capacity considerably. i.e. probably having 6 Trojans AGMs, or maybe LiFePO4
(but thatís another post!) .
So should I convert the existing wiring
so that I will have 1 bank at say ~600 AH, or 2 banks at ~300 AH?
To me it seems better to have one 600 AH bank?
What am I missing here, why have 2 very small banks? What have you guys done in regards to battery
bank expansion, if you have a similar 2 bank system?
Hope that all makes sense!
Thanks in advance.
