This is the unit Power Store

And this article explains how it works and looks at some alternatives Battery Rigging for Verados: The club recommendation

The other part of the equation is a really good set of batteries. AMGs are the way to go for relaibility and these are highly recommeded. (Again I use them)

Not a cheap option but a proper solution, very reliable and a great safety feature. Not being able to start your engine at the start of a day out is a pain. Not being able to start it halfway through is much more worrying!
Sounds like an almost identical electrical set up to mine, like yours mine has been faultless and like Bedajim said, no hassles.
