We put the boat in the garage and fired up the heaters.
We just did some wire work on our Mud Buddy.
We added a second battery and a Perko switch.
We took everything except, the motor/ starter, the running lights, and bilge pumps, and fuel gauge.
Everything else is run off the second battery. Trolling motor, three big LED light bars, winch, interior lights, FoxPro, and 3 power ports.
Number one is the starting system and isolates number two, I hope. Number two setting will run everything too, and all I hope is both for when it is -20* to fire it all up and charge both when running. Then OFF is everything. If it rains when there all off I guess it will sink, no bilge pump.
All the connections are soldered and, liquid tape was applied.

All the nut tightened connections have blue lock tight and Dielectric Grease applyed.

Every thing has resetabal brakers on it, no fuses to mess with,Wright or wrong thats what we did.

I would hard wire a bilge pump with a float switch to the battery and bypass the main switch if it is going to be left in the water.

When it is left in the water it's mostly upon the bank
