Just kidding. I don't think they ever fiddle with them, but I'll be sure to remind them.

On their boat, they only have two batteries, and they are connected. In other words, either one can be selected and used as the starting battery, and they can be used singly or in combination as a house bank. That might be different from Tim's set-up?

Thanks Mike.
