Re: Updating electrical system

These should help:

Basic Battery Wiring Diagrams This is a very good basic primer for boat system wiring: Basic Battery Wiring Diagrams

This is another very good basic primer for boat system wiring: The 1-2-B Switch by Maine Sail (brings together a lot of what this subject is all about)
1/BOTH/2/OFF Switches Thoughts & Musings - SailboatOwners.com

Golf Cart 6V Battery Wiring Golf Cart batts re-positioning & wiring diagrams

They discuss the different types of charging relays so you ONLY need to run BOTH the alternator output and ONE shorepower charger output to the house bank. An echo charger would be the best way to go for you, or the ACR or a Yandina combiner.
