Rewiring 12 for three batteries
Our Westerly currently has 2 grp 31 batteries, and a 1-2-all-off selector. So one is starting, one is house. I would like to replace both of these (they are shot), and use them as the house bank, and then install a seperate, dedicated starter battery.
Should I just install a seperate battery switch, on-off, for disconnecting the starter batt, wired to the engine directly, and then run wires to both banks for charging from the alternator? I will be installing a charger and inverter as well, as they don't exist. So I think I would be ok with the inverter and charger only connected to the house.
Does this make sense, or should I be looking at doing something else?
