Does anyone have pictures of their second battery install using the Blue Sea 7650? Just got mine and I'm looking for mounting suggestions for the switch and relay as well as how people are securing the second battery in the boat. Thanks.

I mounted mine right under the glove box, on the wall above the stock battery. I highly recommend the Auto Charge Relay.. Makes it nice and simple to not have to think about remembering to throw the switch so i don't have a dead battery... Also the battery is on the floor right next to the stock...

I'd send pics, but my GF broke my camera last night when she was hammered... :O

I have an XLV

Auto Charge Relay came in the kit. How did you secure your 2nd battery box to the floor?

Here's my Blue Seas 7610 install also showing battery placement. I've since redone the amps so they are no longer placed as shown. I just screwd the batt strap hold downs right to the floor with SS screws.

Small threadjack - What is the purpose of a two battery setup?

One for starting your boat - one for playing your stereo with the boat off

This is why, two Kicker amps that total 1600 watts peak and 170 amps max. Saves the starting circuit so you can gaurentee the boat will start.
