Stu, presumably you also mean with an echo charger or West/andina Combiner added in, so the house bank will in turn charge the starter battery.
More stuff. (Good stuff, but more stuff, for the folks who aren't running it yet.)
And I must take this opportunity to congratulate Maine Sail, Brian, Bill and a bunch of others for retyping answers to this same question, over and over again. I understand there are new folks. That's why I developed the 101 topic, which links to a lot of what has been described many times before, on this and other forums. Each of the questions has merit, since the poster is new and is asking what is a basic, but highly important question.
