NOTE: I wrote this same quip on another member's post, before i realized I could posssibly been guilt of hijacking his thread...
So here goes, in it very own post!
I just installed a 12.5k winch. I have been thinking about doubling up the batteries. I REALLY like the way 12voltguy's product lets you run off one battery, operate gear off another, isolates both AND lets you self-jumpstart... Does a dual battery set up need ANYthing else??
But I have been kicking THIS idea around: Does mixing these optima/odysee batteries make sense? Specificlly, what if I did a red top direct replacement to handle day-to-day regular-shmegular vehicle operations, THEN pair it up with a yellow top deep cycle for winching, long lighting, refridgerator, compressor, etc? Would this red/yellow combo be the best set up?
Does anyone else do this?
dual batteries ARE definately in my future, but I need some advice in the matter. Any thoughts? Thanks.
