    AGM Battery Issues

    Hello, I have 4 c&d 55ah 12.8 volt resting batteries that I want to run with a 2k. I don't have a AGM battery as a starter battery just a regular acid 12.6 resting battery. I wanted to know if I should wire them str8 to the starter battery with fuses between the batteries and if so 2 runs both neg & pos would be good, or should I put a 200amp isolator on the setup. I was going to charge the batteries with a AGM charger. Thanks for any kind of help guys

    Whenever I've mixed agm with non-agm it hasn't been problematic without an isolator. The four agm batteries is plenty to run 2k so you could also just ditch the front battery

    2x Powermaster D3100
    8x runs of 0 gauge
    1x stock alt

    1 run of 1/0 to the back should be fine, assuming you have a stock alt and don't have a G31 batt under the hood.
