Thanks Lou.

Everything I needed. I'd read that thread before, along with many others, and couldn't remember where the data was listed.

I used P1 and P2 as search terms in the green search box and limited the search to the FRF forum.

That thread was the first "hit."

I read on this forum about the Power Pulse for sulfation build up on the plates, I installed it and I would be damned it really works, My battery's now stay up to full charge after a year using them without it. They are like new again. I couldn't belive it when I measured the volts before and after. Something to thing about. The company is PulseTech, I think I paid like $29.00 bucks, but it really works......

Since my 2 batteries are parallel, should I attach my alligator clips to both batteries ie one to + on one battery and the - to the other battery or can I just use one battery + and -?

Ditto. Always use the positive on one end and the neg on the far end of your battery "stack". This keeps the resistance "per battery" the same allowing for even charge and discharge of the individual batteries.

Herk this was the exact same info you gave me in 2012 for our Salem when i was hooking up the second battery and the marine selector switch.
it never failed us...

Do what he posted and your good to go.
if you want to incorporate a switch
