is a 2011 FP catamaran
with two VP D2-40 diesels, sharing one starting battery
. There is an emergency
cross connect to the house batteries
but I've never had to use it.
I had a VP tech aboard yesterday to do some engine work
and he noticed the battery
configuration and said that it was wrong and that I should have a dedicated starting battery for each engine
, otherwise the alternators would be fighting each other.
came from the factory with only one starting battery and I've never had a problem with the battery or starting the engines, so after almost eight years of running, I think the single
battery set up is OK, but.....
What's your configuration for your two engines?
