One more question... I have a separate monitor for the house bank, so I'd like to use the panel meters to indicate the condition of the starter battery. That would mean connecting the shunt to the starter battery side of the circuit in some fashion, however obviously it couldn't go inline between the starter battery negative terminal and the engine block as it couldn't handle the current of the starter motor.
There is a negative lead from the engine panel to the starter block that looks to be AWG 10 (2.5mm), so I'm thinking that connecting the shunt inline to that ground wire should indicate load/charging of the starter circuit, right? Or should the shut be inline in the ground wire from the alternator?
If a man speaks at sea where there is no woman to hear, is he still wrong?
