    Default Re: Dual Battery Wiring

    I'm putting in a second battery in the back of my jeep. Can I hook the ground to the body or do I have to ground it to the motor? I have upgrade my grounds to the body already.

    You should ground to the motor and from there or a second ground to the body

    Thanks for the help. Its all hooked up and working fine so far. Now I finally get to hook up a few things. Amplifer, overhead lights, inverter, and I'll have a place to hook up my compressor.

    The isolator continuous duty solenoid is in the middle. Much cheaper than the kits

    Yes, only it needs to be continuous duty. The typical starter solenoid is intermittent duty

    Default Re: Dual Battery Wiring

    I'm about to rework all the wiring in my jeep to get all the extra wiring out of the interior. I'm going to be upgrading my alternator and moving the second battery to the front closer to the winch. Right now both my battery's are wired inline and i want to isolate them. I have a 200a solenoid on the way but I need to know what size relays I need to use
