    Your right! The Moomba manual shows option 2. I was got option one straight from BEP's documentation of the cluster VSR/Switch. So Moomba factory supports option 2(I updated the original post).

    So I am getting that if you are cheap you could cut out the switch in any setup and you would be losing the ability to combine the batteries with the switch(you would have to move a wire form the positive of one battery and connect it to the other manually).

    It would seem you could do that, and spend that money in a battery float charger to put on your second battery when your not using the boat. they are only about $30 but then it looks like the switch is only about $35. the bep is dual sensing now so i would get this one as it will also charge both batteries with an external charger. not sure if the blue sea is dual sensing

    So while option two may be the factory "approved" method mine came with dual batts and no sensing relay, just a Perko switch. Hence the reason i yanked it all and added the Blue Seas setup.

    Having a switch wether one is cheap or not is a must have as it allows the batteries to be disconnected from the electrical system while the boat is sitting and eliminating the possibility of an electrical fire. Many a fire a marine fire has happened due to this very reason.

    The Blue Sea ACR is dual sensing. See FAQs link below:

    I am going thru this right now also. I have decided to go with the Blue Sea ACR and Dual Circuit Plus switch. Was able to buy each separately on EBay brand new for a total of $67 shipped!

    Here is a link to the Blue Sea 5511E switch (the same one that comes with the add a battery package) for $16.99 (plus $10.55 shipping). I bought one plus found the ACR for $40 shipped (they only had one of the ACRs).

    ya have to love Al , he always knows where to get a deal, best i could find was 106 here for the Bep dual and switch

    and i agree with razz for 30 or 35 more get the switch ...it gives you ease of complete control.


    Now to add one more thing what do you guys think of desulfators?

    Yeah I am going with the ACR too. It has some extra circuitry to account for the cycling that could happen when batteries are combined. http://bluesea.com/viewresource/527

    I heard this happening on my old 05 battery setup in certain cases. Also has starter isolation if you want to hook it up. Hopefully all those extra features won't cause it to have problems easier.

    I'd never even heard of one until i looked up what it meant. It's an interesting concept.
