Twin battery installation

Anyone got a decent wiring diagram of how to add an auxiliary battery (and switching) to my current single install. I carry a spare battery anyway as a precaution but want to go a more secure, sensible route. I have done a search on here but nothing really relevant seems to come up.


Thanks

I owe you a beer, I couldn't find that thread at all.

Having read through it the only thing I need now (I had sorted the rest) is the wiring diagram to incorporate the switch and the new battery. Anyone fancy a stab at that or am I likely to get the instructions with the switch?

PS. It has just occured to me that I didn't look for "second" only "twin"!!!!

Should be 3 terminals, one to the outboard, two from the batteries.
