    Just curious if most run off of just your stock battery set up or do you install a second battery for back up and less draw??

    I just use one battery and a stock alternator. But, if I had a V plow and a lot of lights I'd run dual batteries.

    I still do a couple of small lots with a lot of farting around with a v plow
    I run 2 batts and both go to power the heavy v plow

    Alts don't put out a lot of amps at rpms below 1700-2000rpm
