Re: Battery Switch

There are only 2 batteries installed. Both are 7 year old, group 24 AGM deep cycles. I thought both were fully charged when I tested. I need test again starting at the batteries.

I'm wondering if/ when I replace them, if I should install one cranking and one deep cycle. It seems to be the popular choice.

I'm waiting on a replacement heat exchanger so I can't run the engine. I couldn't find the stamping on the alternator to determine the amps. Does anyone have a easy way after I get the engine running?

Thanks
