Solera battery question
Re. the battery under the driver's feet for a 2013 Solera. I have unearthed it and wondered what I am looking at. Is it a dual function battery, and is it completely sealed- am I right? How good are these batteries? Or battery.
On a related theme, we bought our Solera secondhand, and I note that there is no accessory battery in the engine compartment, but a nice big empty space for one- is this SOP for a new Solera? Has anyone added an accessory battery, and if so, what kind? I am a bit nervous having just one battery supplying all the electrics- if indeed there is only one on-board battery serving two functions (deep cycle and engine starting) as I suspect, and would like to know what to put in as backup.
And yes, I am a newbie. One who is very grateful for this forum. I just haven't been able to find anything that answers these issues, and the manual is useless for this.
