Re: Battery Sizing - am I crazy?
I dont think you need 2 batteries.
You definitely want a deep cycle. Deep cycles can start all day long with no harm. Starting batteries however have limited capacity and very bad lifetime if they are ever deep cycled.
Even a small Group 24 deep cycle can start that 1 cylinder engine with ease and will then have far more capacity for running the radio/lights after that.
