I'm thinking of adding a second battery to my 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 and using
a battery isolater. It looks like there is room on the passenger side that
I can easily add a factory battery tray, however, there some AC hoses and
other parts in that location. I have 2 questions
1 - Has anyone added a second battery and how difficult is it to relocation
those hoses, etc?
2 - Does anyone have any experience with the Sure Power 1314-200
Correction. In daylight and not raining, it looks like the hoses and other
hardware are probably emissions lated. Furthermore, they are all rubber
lines and 1 wiring harness and everything is mounted to one bracket, so I
think I can relocated them pretty easily, still would like to hear anyones
advice, experience with a 2 battery setup in a '99 Ram.
I've given up on diode type isolators as a bad idea. I use a constant
duty solenois to disconnect the battery when the ignition is shut off.
It charges with the main battery when running.

Thanks for the info. I've done a little more research on isolators and
agree that the diode type are insufficient. I'm looking at various models
of solinoid isolators. I'm in no hurry, I have until June to get something
