Yes, this is exactly my plan, both starters to 1 starting battery. Also plan to use 1 motor
to charge the starting battery, while using the 2nd motor
to charge the house bank with a Blue Seas ACR between the start and the house bank. That allows for both motors to equally charge all 3 batterys.
My question was main if there would be a power loss by using the 1/2/All switch setup vs the simplier ON/Off config. I think not in this case (short cable lenghts) , but asking just in case I'm overlooking something.
I agree, the single
on/off switch is more simple. I'm afraid I was trying to reengineer the wheel
. I will still provide for a way to combine the batteries if need be, just didn't go into it here.
Thanks for the advise guys.
