Battery: The ol' 1 and a 2...
So, I've got two 12 volt deep cell 75 amp batteries connected in parallel, sitting under the companionway in some battery boxes. This was PO's doing (along with war, famine, and just about every other malady..!)
Anyway, I hate the look of this thing, and I'm also attempting to rewire the panel, located above the chart table.
there's a spot, i think, for two batteries under the table, so I'm going to try them there.
The question is, with a modern 1 2 both off switch, doesn't the circuitry of the switch wire the batteries in parallel, or separate them based on the settings?
Right now, the batteries are wired together, literally, and I'm thinking this nullifies the 1-2-both thing.
Thanks, guys, as always.
