So last weekend I added the blue seas add a battery system with a starting and deep cell battery. Today we were sitting listening for music for approx 1.5 hrs and when I tried to start the boat it took 3-4 turns to get it to turn over. I would have thought the relay would have transitioned to the starting battery automatically without need for a few turns. Does this mean I did not install it correctly? Any trouble-shooting advice before I call blue seas tomorrow?

fyi, I used 2 gauge wire for all set up and 100 amp fuse for relay (as described in the instructions), i only have a sub and head unit powering 4 speakers. As soon as I started the boat, pp was reading 13.2V and 11.7V with engine off.

Thanks for any help.
