After searching the internet for a while trying to find a good solution how to install 2 more batteries for winching. And not finding anything, I made one myself. Here are some pictures of the project.










LEAB CDB 150 Battery isolator.

Connection of red lead for counter current/voltage to start up the alternator

Yeah, I think I'm the only guy in the states running dual batteries, and I cheated, as I put one in my truck box.

I think the aussie's have a few running duals, and they put them there as well :)

Nice work.

Yes I have seen them mounted in the truck box / toolbox. But my toolbox is filled up with my winch, tools, straps and other recovery-stuff.
So I had to come up with another solution. :)

Nice work. I would put a cover over the battery terminals.

Beautiful work. Looks like a great place to put them up and out of the way. A hint you may want to try for safety's sake. On the clevis pin, make sure it is very tight and either bung the threaded end with a hammer or run a wire through the flat end to keep it from coming loose/apart. I have seen those things come apart at the worst possible times in boating/trailering. NOT a pretty sight. Mike

I have already done that. I did it the day after i took the pictures.
But thanks anyway. It is important to secure the clevis pin. I also used "Loctite" on the threads.
