    hey guys i just switched from a 2013 tundra to a 2016 chevy 1500 crew cab and i am swapping my fisher plow over to the new truck. the truck is a week old and i wanted to add the second battery as soon as possible. i was just going to parallel them up without an isolator. would adding a new battery now be okay because the existing battery is new, i know you are supposed to buy two new but the truck is new. will i be okay without an isolator, i know alot of guys dont run them but i also know these knew trucks have a ton of electronic stuff going on and didnt know if an isolator would be better for that reason
    thanks

    No isolator, as it defeats the reason you're running 2 batts.

    You can add a 2nd batt now if its the same size,.amp, make, etc

    Why do you think you need a 2nd batt?
