I have almost completed the dc rewiring of our boat. The only thing remaining is the charging
system. When we purchased her, there were three battery
banks: house (400 AH), starter battery
and seperate windlas battery (31T109 - 1090 cranking amps - 215 reserve minutes). In the new system they will be tied together with a PathMaker 250 (3 battery bank capacity). Everything will be charged with two 90 amp alternators, three solar panels
(size not yet determined) and a honda
2000 as backup.
I want to increase the size of the house bank to 600 AH, but have no room in the battery compartment for additional or larger batteries. However, I do have room for two batteries under the nav table seat that is approx 6' from the house bank. I'm not concerned about the additional expense for larger wire to combine them, I'm just wondering if there are any inherent problems with having a portion of the house bank in a seperate location.
As always, your help is appreciated.
