Just out of interest (and I know less about electronics than you do) would you be able to earth the -ve to the body instead of running to the battery?

You can mate, but if you run the -(negative) back to the battery you'll avoid any unnecessary voltage drop.

Just curious, could you do this mod on a Gen 2 using the factory volt gauge? Has anyone tried it? I have been trying to think of a way to put even just a push button style momentary switch so the gauge would read start battery all the time, then press the button to display aux.

cant imagine this being too difficult Mussy. Maybe using a 3-way rocker switch might be better as youl probably get a sore finger waiting for the factory analog gauge to respond to change.

Old thread but really handy. I have finally completer my dual batt install and did the dual battery meter as per this post. I installed it next to the ignition. I used the parts shown by the OP for fuses and switch but used an ebay voltmeter (reads .1V low). Works perfectly and the I and II on the switch are perfect for batt 1 & 2.


While I was doing it I also connected the dual batt isolator override to a momentary switch. Haven't needed a jump start in at least 2 years so hope I'm not jinxing myself

Cheers,
James

Does the dual battery run parallel all the time?

Or only one can be connected at a time?
