Re: Blue Sea Battery meter with two banks
None of this really matters with a simple ammeter/voltmeter as it is not counting Ah's or keeping track of Peukert/SOC. They simply show what is happening at a specific point in time (a snap shot) across the shunt..
If you had a true battery monitor then yes the position of the aux battery on the shunt would matter because it is actually doing something other than displaying the "at a glance" current.. With a simple ammeter is is not critical where the AUX batt is wired. Just wire an A/B to see voltage of a second bank..
I still prefer to have an aux battery on the load side of a house bank shunt but in this case it is not "critical"..
