Re: Typical isolating diode location?

They should be on the charging output to batteries. Generally the charging line goes to the main battery bank and the diode is in the line to the secondary bank. Blue Sea calls theirs a Dual Sensing Automatic Charging Relay, BEP calla theirs aDual Sense Voltage Sensitive Relay (VSR).
