    Sorry, the correct term is not welding calbles but "welding leads". Just had to get my 2 cents in....

    Dumb question here; does the house battery side just power the amps or does it do some of the other aux items like heater, blower, lights etc?

    typically one would have everything tied to one battery(house) as you mentioned and the other battery is reserved for starting.

    As the electrical system has all stock systems tied to house battery from the factory I've always left it that way and moved the stereo to the second battery. Anything else i add goes to the stereo battery bank.

    I have mine set up like Razz. One battery that runs the boat, one battery that runs the stereo.

    I'm running a 24 for starting and a 27 for stereo. Adding another 27 soon.

    Sorry guys, been busy and have not been on the board much. Looks like I never finished out this thread. Here is a pic of the completed install. Not "show quality" like a lot of other installs on this forum, just basic and functional.

    Two reasons: (1) If they trip, I can just flip the lever to reset. Don't have to worry about carrying extra fuses. (2) I have an onboard smart charger (ProMariner ProSport 20) that can direct more current to the battery that needs it (usually the stereo battery) but I also have an Automatic Charging Relay that will combine the batteries once it senses the charge, thus defeating the benefits of the smart charger. So when I plug in my smart charger, I open both the thermal breakers which isolates the ACR, which means it can't combine the two batteries when the smart charger is plugged in. Make sense?

    That's the Blue Sea Automatic Charging Relay (ACR). When the boat is running, it automatically combines both batteries so that both are getting charged by the alternator. When adrift or anchored, it automatically isolates the batteries so I don't accidentally run the starter battery down. I set the battery switch to ON and forget it.

    They are made by absolute. I got them here, except the new ones have a built in digital amp gauge.

    Right! Leads is the right term, not cables. Thanks for setting me straight.

    I have the helm bus (which feeds the heater, blower, lights, etc.) and starter connected to the house battery and the head unit and amps connected to the stereo battery.

    Since I added a third amp this winter, I am going to be adding a second stereo battery this spring just to make sure I don't run out of juice on those 3 and 4 day weekends with no access to 120V power in between days on the water.
