I need some help!!!!    Anyone????

I am putting in a dual battery system on my 2019 Crest 1 220 SLC. I am using the Blue Seas Add A Battery 120 AMP capable system.  It comes with a switch and an automatic charging relay that senses when either battery gets low and charges it. Everything is sorted out but one little wire.

Let me give you the instructions and see what you guys think…

“Connect a wire from the quick connect terminal marked SI (Start Isolation) to the terminal or wire running from the start key switch to the starter solenoid.  Make this connection through an in-line fuse of one to ten amps.  This connection can be made at the start key switch or at the starter solenoid, but must be to the line that is positive only when cranking.  Connection to a line that is positive while the engine is normally running will prevent the charging relay from working properly.”

I know where is SI terminal is and I know what gauge wire to use.  What I am not sure of is should I go with the connection at the switch…or…at the solenoid.  Which would be “easier”??  I am running a Suzuki DF150.

Also, I have called and talked with a Blue Seas tech rep and I still don’t understand if this has to be hooked up to a wire that goes essentially dead after you turn the switch….WHY DO I NEED IT !!??

Anyone????  HELP!

The great thing about excruciating pain least you know you are alive.
