Can my batteries handle it?

    Hey guys,
    I have a question about my 2001 2500 diesel ram. I will be installing a snow ex 1875 soon and was wondering if I would have a problem with drawing too much power from the batteries. It is set up with two batteries but I also have the plow, CB, rear plow lites and plug in warning strobe running as well. I'm wondering if there are any unforeseen problems I may run into that any one may have already encountered.

    Thanks Darren

    I have a 2001 Dodge 1500 and run all the same equipment you do except I have a SnowEx 1075 spreader, and 2 sets of rear work lights, and I have no problems with dual batteries. I have never tried to run the plow at the same time as the spreader though....don't know why you would but that would probably be a problem...Good Luck!:salute: :salute:

    no- no major problems. You will almost NEVER run the sander at the same time as you're pushing snow......

    Just do the normal battery maintenance regularly- you'll be fine with the diesel setup.
