    Man there is way to much info in the other thread, I am not that smart. I have a western 8' pro. My man bat is upgraded to a gell cell from napa. Shoud I be running the same capacity batteries for both the main and aux, for charging purposes. SEcond question as I am confused by the other thread.--If I run my plow on my aux bat(currently on the main), will the alt keep that battery charged? I am confused, but that is not hard to acheive.

    Here is the basic hook up of a dual battery setup.
    If you run your plow off the aux battery it will work fine.
    As you can see the batteries are hook up together with the alternator in a parallel circuit. So they both get charge at the same time.

    But the batteries should be the same size and type.
