This bouncing/cycling will continue until the house bank reaches a level of charge to where the ACR stays combined.

    So in actuality, the ACR will not combine a full battery and dead battery and stay combined, thus allowing the full battery to equalize with the dead. When the house bank is heavily depleted, rotating the switch to combine will circumvent the ACR, allowing the house bank to receive and steady charge from the alternator and getting back up as fast as possible. As long as the engine is running, equalizing will not be an issue, so if you stop again, switch off of COMBINE.
    That sounds better then i was understanding lol. Thanks man. I just know it took me 2 summers to get away from the old fasion switch isolator and now i will never go back. I loved the ACR i had and the no worries of it. Only thing i had to worry about was a circuit breaker getting bumped open and that bank going dead, normally my stereo would die in 5 hours or so LOL. Very embarrasing to be cranking it while your best bro is ripping it up on the wakeboard and half a dozen boats watching and your big monster stereo cuts out LOL.

    I knew all that, just thought I'd make sure you guys did! J/k, thanks for the explanation guys.
    To the OP Chawk, if you want install advice take some pics and we can go around on that for a while. Have you considered cables yet?

    That will work, as long as there 2 gauge or larger. You can get different style that are easy to bend and manipulate.

    I got marine tinned from genuine dealz, not sure if it matters. You will need some cables for the ACR as well.

    Well. probably not the most popular choice, but I went with the K.I.S.S. option (Keep it simple stupid). I think it is gonna work out well. I would like a cleaner look if anyone has any suggestions. These cables do not like to behave.

    great job!! but stand by for all the jokes about wires and mouses. I got kicked hard for my second battery install and the sad thing is I paid a shop to do mine. I like your set up but the stereo guru's will chime in soon enuff about all them wires!

    I can change it at will. I wan't sure if I should harness them all together or not. I really don't like the sloppy look.

    You need some terminal protection, someone is going to throw something metal in there and cause a short/fire.

    Not sure but by law I think the battery needs to be in a box to contain the acid if broken?...Not sure about that one...

    Correction terminal protection is required..
