Guess I need to explore that MS.
There is a terminal on the BS ACR that you wire to the starter solenoid wire or start button. When the starter is engaged it drops the relay so you don't pull more than 120A through it.

99.5% of them I see installed never connect this wire, even factory installations on boats that factory ship with them, and I have never had a single failure of a Blue Sea ACR. That said I do use the SI feature when there is a source that could have the banks at "combine" voltage...

On my own boat, for experiments sake, I never connected SI feature and the relay survived many hundreds and hundreds of starts without any failure. They are well built relays..
chef2sail and Seaduction like this.

That is true, but I don't mix battery types and have all AGMs
