i know this is like asking is 50 gallons enough, if you dont know what its in....
basically i want to run:
, nav, and spreader lights
a few interior
, as needed.
thats it for right now.
some numbskull put a deepcycle battery
on my engine
starting bank. so i will wire that into the house bank and get a small starting battery
for the 63HP diesel
. that will bring me up to 600AH for the bank, or 300AH useable. is this plenty to run all of that for 10 hours? 20? i could do the math, but experience is better then math sometimes.
i talked to a long time interstate distributor, he has taken a SRM-4D apart. he assures me that the plate thickness is the same as a golf cart, or trojan deep cycle battery. and only thinner then a forklift battery. he says he sees people using these in a house bank application non-stop for 5-6 years. the forklift batteries will last 10.
i will stick with the SRM-4D. at $200 each, it hard to beat.
oh, and i got it on, and off the boat myself. its hard work, but then again i did 85# hay bales in my teens.... stack 400 of those in a day, you too can heft a 4D battery.
