Guys and gals,
I have a simple wiring question. My boat is a Catalina 22. I want to keep the stock control panel, but I want to add a second battery and a solar charger. My basic plan is to wire the batteries in parallel, have the positive leads run to a distribution block, and the solar charger and control panel would have leads on the block as well. And a likewise block for the grounds.
(I realize I can just hook the positive of one battery to the other. Same for the negative)
Should this work well? I just want a very simple, and basic, electrical system.
