Default Re: Best 12v battery option for 7th accessory battery?

I'm installing one right now. 35ah, 25 pounds. Note it is laying on its side. SLA/AGM in a custom build under the front end.

I went with this 75 AH battery. I had the room in the original battery tray since I'm using four 12 volt batteries.

I also went with a blue Sea fuse panel, which I'm in the process of wiring up.

Thanks. It kinda looks like a mess right now, but I'll take a pic when it's all cleaned up and the battery is installed. It seems never ending, but I kinda like it

What gauge wire is everyone running from their 12 volt accessory battery to their fuse panel? My Blue Sea instructions say 4-6 AWG for the positive feed, that seems pretty big to me. Also, my lighted rocker switches are always on, so I'm thinking about putting in a battery disconnect switch so I could shut the 12 volt power down so my switches aren't on during the day when they're not being used. I'll need to wire my 12 volt outlet directly to the battery so it's always on, even if the disconnect switch is off. Any other ideas?

I used 12 guage from battery to fuse panel, 12 guage to switch panel, and 14 guage for everything off of that.

Mine stay on too. But I think the draw is very tiny. I'm going to leave it this way for now. Time will tell.

I'm sure you're right about the low amp draw, maybe I'll just leave it like this for now too. I can always add the battery disconnect switch at a later date if I want.

That's what I'm thinking. Not a big deal to put a switch somewhere.

Just got my tray and strap in the mail today. I think I am pretty set on an Odyssey 1200 to power my future Warn Pro Vantage 2500 (I want a wired remote bc I hear the RF ones have a lot of delay). The battery will go in the driver side area of my TXT's battery box. The Odyssey looks to have decent specs and is fairly light (38.2lb). It was a toss up between that and the PC1100 (27.5lb). I also bit the bullet and decided to buy a 48 to 12v converter tonight after my battery/charger problems. I will power all of my other accessories off of it but leave the separate 12v for the winch and maybe my new under basket LED light bar setup.
