Re: Blue Seas ACR/"Add a battery" kit

For the OP, I would spend the money on a solar maintainer. It doesn't sound like you need anything hard core.

On a related point, I've always stowed away a set of jumper cables in the event I needed to jump one bank to another. If truly desperate, I could always just move the batteries themselves. In this boat, I do have a simple AB switch that energizes the engine starter from either the start battery or the house bank. Very simple solution to a bad start battery. It doesn't, however, have anything to do with how they are charged.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
