Electric set up, am I nuts?
I'm about to re do the electric wiring, my boat is a Merit 25. I've already installed navigation lights, but everything else in the cabin will be redone.
I'm thinking to put together 2 24DC wet cell deep cycle batteries in parallel for the house. I don't need a starter battery 'cuse I have an outboard.
The tricky part is this: I will have aboard a gas gen (honda, I know about gas hazards, but I'm already carrying gas for the motor, not an issue) with the generator I plan to charge the batteries via a AC charger -20 amp. and use the DC current it delivers to hook it up to the 2nd slot of the battery switch, so I will have 12 volt current from the gen at the same time I charge the batteries, am I nuts to do this?
